Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Configuring custom modes on the Canon 7D Mark II, part of Performance Tuning the Canon 7D Mark II.
- You're probably already familiar with…the basic exposure modes…that are available on most cameras.…That includes for example, the manual exposure mode,…aperture priority and shutter priority modes.…On the 7D Mark II, we can actually define…custom exposure modes, now they're not actually…exposure modes, per se, but rather a saved set…of camera settings so that we can very quickly…get to a particular configuration on the camera.…As just one example, I frequently shoot HDR images…or High Dynamic Range images where I need…a set of bracketed images at different exposures…that I'll then assemble later in the computer.…
And I'd like to be able to make it be more convenient,…faster to get to those specific settings.…So to get started, let's go ahead and establish…what those settings would look like.…I'm going to first off set my overall exposure settings,…so I'll go into the ISO option for example,…and generally speaking, not always, but generally speaking…when I'm capturing an HDR sequence,…I'll start off at about 400 ISO.…
The Canon 7D Mark II is photographer Tim Grey's favorite camera for his own work. In this course, he demonstrates a set of customization strategies aimed at making your camera far more responsive. Learn how to adjust the size and quality of RAW and JPEG capture, add metadata such as copyright and geolocation data in-camera, set up custom exposure modes, and create time lapses by using the built-in intervalometer.
