In this course, photographer and author Ben Long details the features, controls, and options in the Canon 5D Mark III digital SLR. The course begins with an overview of what a digital SLR is and takes a tour of the camera's basic components. Ben then discusses the camera's basic operation: changing lenses, navigating the menus, shooting in automatic mode, reviewing and managing photos on the camera's LCD screen, and transferring photos to a computer.
Next, the course introduces more advanced exposure options: program mode, exposure compensation, ISO adjustments, and more. After Ben briefly defines each option, he shows how to adjust it using the camera's controls.
Ben also discusses white balance options, advanced metering and autofocus controls, flash, live view, and video shooting. The course ends with a chapter on maintenance, including sensor- and camera-cleaning and care tips.
You've seen the level in grid display that you can use while you're shooting. There's also a grid display you can use in playback mode if you want to really double-check whether an image is level are not. If I go in here to the menu, to the third screen of the playback section, I have Playback grid. I can turn that on, and I get the same options that I get in the normal grid display. I can control the frequency of the grid, and whether I want diagonal lines. I'm going to go head and set this up to 6x4, and now when I go into playback mode, I get a grid displayed over my images.
This is going big to be displayed over every image. So this is a way that I can go in, check whether an image is level, and if it's not, I can decide whether I want to shoot it again.
