Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Using Flexible Program mode, part of Learning the Nikon D5200 and D5300.
- While Program Mode sets the shutter speed…and aperture automatically, Flexible Program Mode…gives you a bit more influence.…You can try different combinations of…shutter speed and aperture by rotating…the main command dial, each of these…combinations will give you a proper exposure.…But you can influence shutter speed and aperture…to control the motion blur or depth of field.…Rotate the dial to the right for larger…apertures, lower F stops, this will…blur the background details, it'll also use…a fast shutter speed, which can help freeze motion.…
Keep in mind that the aperture of your lens…will limit the value that you can choose.…Rotate the dial to the left for a smaller aperture,…a high F stop, this will increase the depth of field…and rely on slower shutter speeds that blur motion.…All of the combinations you choose will result…in a properly exposed photo.…You can rely upon exposure compensation…to influence the overall exposure.…Flexible Program Mode allows you to…influence both shutter speed and…aperture while still getting a correct exposure.…
