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.
Your camera has a big collection of image playback features. You've already seen how it displays an image immediately after you shoot, but of course you can also go in and browse all of the pictures that are stored on your media card. What you may not realize though is that you can perform a lot of image editing functions on those images directly in the camera. To enter Playback mode, I simply press the playback button here at the bottom of the back of the camera, and I see the last image that I shot. I can navigate through all of the images on the card using the Forward and Back-arrow keys that will just step through each one.
I have a few other simple functions that can be kind of handy. First of all, I can press the Info button and see some information about my image, the shutter speed and aperture, the image number. There are few other screens of information. We're going to be looking at those in detail later. I can also zoom in to my image using the +/- buttons here. As I zoom in, I get this little key to show exactly what part of the image I'm looking at. When I'm zoomed in, I can pan around my image by using the arrow keys. Now, you might think, well, this is great, I can zoom in and really make sure that my image is in focus.
You can kind of get an idea of focusing your image, but this screen is not a super accurate way of judging focus, but if an image is wildly out of focus, you'll see it. Still it is a nice way to examine some fine details. Finally, if I want, I can delete an image. I just press the Trashcan Icon. It asks me to confirm. I scroll over there, hit Set, and the image is deleted. Note that you can recover images if you accidentally delete them sometimes, and we'll talk about that in a later movie.
