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.
The Rebel has a great LCD screen, but there still might be times when you have trouble seeing it. Especially if you are in bright light, it might get washed out by direct sunlight, or if you are in low light, you may even find that it's too bright. Fortunately, you can change the brightness of the screen by going here to the second tools menu, to LCD brightness, and you can simply dial it up and down. It shows the last image you took just as a reference and you also get this gray ramp here to give you a better idea of what detail you might be losing. I can see here that my brightest tones are starting to wash out a little bit and I picked up some extra shadow detail.
I can also go the other direction to keep track of what I'm losing there. This is not a super accurate display, so I wouldn't get too hung up on paying too much attention to this. Mostly, you can just brighten it if the screen is getting washed out by direct light, or darken it if it's too glary and bright and when you're in a darker environment.
