Join Justin Reznick for an in-depth discussion in this video Configuring Drive mode, part of Performance Tuning Your Canon Digital SLR.
- In this video, I'd like to discuss…the drive modes of the Canon cameras…and another important tool to maximize…your camera in the field and that's the remote shutter.…Now, there are different remote shutters…for different bodies.…This model will work for all the full-frame bodies.…If you have a crop sensor, like the Rebel or a 70D,…there is a different model, so make sure and check…that you get the right remote shutter.…Now, what this does is, it enables me to…plug it into the camera and have the shutter become remote.…
In other words, taking my hand away from the camera…and, therefore, maximizing sharpness.…Every time you press the shutter of a camera,…think about it, you're shaking that camera and vibrating it.…And it's so crucial to get sharp images…that we take our hands away.…So, what I'm going to do is I'm going to go ahead…and attach this.…And...…now I've got all the control right in my hand.…Okay?…So this shutter acts the exact same…as the one on the camera.…It's a very powerful tool, it's very simple.…
