Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Shooting in special scene modes, part of Learning the Canon Rebel SL1 (100D and Kiss X7).
- If you'd like to strike the balance between auto…and more advanced modes,…your camera offers 10 different special scene modes.…Each mode influences the camera's decision-making process,…making it more optimized for certain shooting situations.…You could choose the foremost common scene modes directly…by turning the mode dial.…To access the other six, set the dial to "Scene,"…and press the Quick Control button.…Use the Cross Keys to select the desired shooting mode icon.…To change the shooting mode, you can rotate the main dial…or tap the screen.…
Press "Set" to apply the shooting style.…Scene modes don't really unlock any special features.…Rather, they're more like recipes.…They make it easier by choosing the right menu options:…shutter speed, aperture, ISO, and flash performance.…Keep in mind that most scene modes will force you…to shoot JPG files.…These are heavily compressed images…that permanently apply settings to the files.…You won't be able to use RAW for capturing the scene,…which could be pretty limiting.…
