Shooting with the Canon Rebel T3i (600D and Kiss X5) details the features, controls, and options in the Canon Rebel T3i camera. Author Ben Long provides an overview of a digital single lens reflex (SLR) camera and reviews the Canon Rebel T3i camera's components and basics of operation, 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.
By now you should be comfortable with Exposure compensation and the Exposure compensation readout right here. When I adjust Exposure compensation, by default I'm going in 1/3 stop increments, so that's one stop of over exposure. This is 2/3 of a stop. That's 1/3 of a stop. If you prefer to think in half stop increments or if you don't want that much granularity between your big exposure compensation chunks, there's a custom function you can change. I'm going to go here into menu and go into Custom Functions, and the very first thing is Exposure level increments.
By default, I'm at 1/3 of stop. If I want I can hit OK, scroll down to here and choose 1:1/2-stop. Now, you notice that my Exposure compensation readout only has one notch between each full stop, so that's 1/2 stop of overcompensation and that's one full stop. So if you prefer thinking in half stops rather than whole stops that's just an easy way to simplify things.
