With this feature, you can meter to get an exposure that gets you proper overall…brightness and then use Program Shift to change to an exposure combination that…serves up that same overall brightness, but with the motion stopping or depth of…field control that you want.…Program Shift on the 60D is very simple.…It's the main Dial, this Wheel right here behind the Shutter button.…So it's very easy to just reach back here and grab it and start cycling through…
