Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Safety shift, part of Canon 60D Essential Training.
Consider this scenario:…you're in Aperture Priority.…you're shooting with a lens that can open all the way at F2.8.…You've dialed in 2.8 on your camera, which tells your camera to shoot at F2.8.…Because you're in Aperture Priority mode, it knows that it has to calculate a…shutter speed that's appropriate for that aperture.…Your camera decides that 1/8000th,…its maximum shutter speed, is the only one that's fast enough to give you a…good exposure at 2.8. So there you are,…you're shooting away, and then in mid- shoot, the sun comes out from behind the…cloud, which makes your entire scene much brighter.…
But because it's Aperture Priority mode, the camera is not allowed to change…aperture, and it needs to cut down the light, because the sun has just come out,…but it's already at its faster shutter speed.…Since it can't do anything, your image will be overexposed.…If you enable the Safety Shift Custom Function, then the camera is allowed to…change aperture, even when you're in Aperture Priority mode.…
