Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Taking some shots in Auto and Creative Auto mode, part of Up and Running with the Canon 6D.
…Now that your camera is turned on and ready, with a lens and…memory card attached, let's try it out.…On the top of your camera is a dial, which lets you choose a shooting mode.…The shooting mode determines what decisions the camera makes and…which ones are up to you.…You could adjust these settings depending upon how you want to shoot.…For example, sometimes you'll want fine control over how much of…your scene is in focus from front to back.…That's called depth of field.…Aperture priority mode works well for this.…Other times you might want to freeze the action in a scene for…a fast-moving subject.…
In this case, you'll turn to shutter priority mode, and it's great for this.…Other times you might want to let the camera make most of the decisions for…you, particularly if you're needing to work quickly.…So, one of the auto or program modes can come in handy.…To change modes just turn this dial.…If the dial won't turn press the mode dial lock release button.…If you've just taken the camera out of the box,…it may already be set to be fully automatic shooting mode.…
