Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Aperture Priority mode, part of Canon 60D Essential Training.
In Program mode, when you meter a scene by half-pressing the Shutter button, the…camera calculates an appropriate shutter speed and aperture.…There will be times though when you know that you're going to want a lot of…control of aperture.…Maybe you're shooting portraits, and you know that you want them all to have…shallow depth of field.…So you want to make certain that the camera is always using a wide aperture. Or…maybe you're out shooting landscapes and you know that you want a really deep…depth of field in all of your shots, so you want to make certain that you're…always using a small aperture. Or maybe you're street-shooting, and as you're…shooting different subject matter, you're changing your mind about depth of…field, and so you want to easily be able to change from a big to small aperture.…
In Aperture Priority mode you can choose the aperture that you want and when the…camera meters, it will automatically pick a corresponding shutter speed that…will yield a correct exposure.…You probably already know how to switch to Aperture Priority mode.…
