Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Creative Auto mode, part of Canon 60D Essential Training.
If you are up on your exposure theory, then you know already that shutter…speed is used to control motion stopping in your image while aperture is used…to control Depth of Field, and both together are used to govern how light or…dark your image is.…If you are new to photography, then you may still be a little fuzzy about which…parameter does what and how to control them, even though you understand the…creative possibilities of Motion Control and Depth of Field.…Creative Auto mode is a variation of your camera's Auto mode that provides you…with a less technical interface for deciding how much Depth of Field you want…and what kind of color treatment you want on your image.…
It also gives you a different way of choosing Drive mode and Flash options.…Creative Auto mode is this mode over here that says CA on it.…Not much changes on the outside of the camera when I switch to Creative Auto mode.…To get to its features, I have to press the Q button here, and when I do that, I…get this completely different interface.…
