This course details the features, controls, and options in the Canon EOS 60D camera. Author Ben Long provides an overview of a digital single lens reflex (SLR) camera and reviews the components and operation of the Canon 60D camera, including changing lenses, navigating the menus, shooting in Auto mode, and reviewing and managing photos on the camera's LCD screen. The course also covers white balance options, advanced metering and autofocus controls, flash, and shooting HD video, and includes a chapter on sensor and camera maintenance.
Hi! My name is Ben Long. Understanding your gear is essential to consistently taking good photos. Sure, you can throw your camera into Auto mode and get good shots most of the time, but you will run into situations that will flummox your camera's Auto features, and in those instances you need to know how to adjust your camera to get good results. In this course, you're going to learn all of the critical features of your Canon EOS 60D. You'll learn what its different modes do, how you can alter and tweak those modes, how to shoot video using the camera's amazing HD video features, how to customize the camera to make it easier to use for your particular shooting tasks, and how to use the camera's various exposure controls to correct exposure while you shoot.
Now, this is not a photography course. We won't be going into detail into exposure theory and the other fundamentals of photography, but we will give you reminders about specific terms and processes and tell you when it's a good idea to go watch an additional lynda course that might help with the fundamentals. This course combined with a couple of other courses will provide you with a full photo curriculum, but one built around your specific camera. This means you can learn photography in terms of the specific buttons and controls on your exact camera.
So get your camera close to hand as we delve into the particulars of the Canon EOS 60D.
