Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Scene modes and image format, part of Nikon D7000 Essential Training.
As we've changed modes from Auto to Program to Priority to Manual modes,…you have seen how the camera gives up control and puts more decision-making into your hands.…You can go to the opposite direction if you want and put more decision-making…into the camera by switching to a Scene mode.…Scene modes are simply modes that are designed for shooting under…particular circumstances.…They bias the camera's decision-making process so that it will do a better job…of making exposure and processing decisions for a particular type of scene.…Once I'm in a Scene mode I can come in here and turn my Main Dial to select the…type of scene that I am in.…
So for example, Sunset or Beach/snow, Party/indoors, Night landscape, Night…portrait, Closeup, Sports, Child, Landscapes, this goes on and on and on.…For any particular Scene mode the camera has made some certain decisions.…For example, in Landscape mode it's going to automatically choose the landscape…picture control that's going to give me better blues and greens in my landscape.…
