Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Shooting in scene modes, part of Learning the Nikon D5200 and D5300.
- If you'd like to strike a balance…between auto and more advanced modes,…your camera offers sixteen different…creative photography, or scene modes.…Each mode influences the camera's…decision-making process, making it…more optimized for certain shooting situations.…You could choose from one of the…five quick access scene modes with the dial.…These are portrait, landscape,…child, sports, or close-up.…If you need another scene mode,…turn the dial to set it to scene mode.…
To choose another scene,…just rotate the main command dial.…Scene modes don't really unlock…any special features, rather,…they're more like recipes.…They make it easier by choosing…the right menu options, shutter speed,…aperture, ISO, and flash performance.…Keep in mind that most scene modes…will force you to shoot JPEG files.…These are heavily compressed images…that permanently apply settings to the files.…You won't be able to use RAW for capturing…the scene, which can be pretty limiting.…Remember, RAW files contain a lot more information…that's useful when editing with software.…
