Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Taking some shots in Auto and Creative Auto mode, part of Learning the Canon Rebel SL1 (100D and Kiss X7).
- Now that your camera is turned on and ready with a lens…and memory card attached, let's try it out.…On the top of your camera is a dial…which lets you choose a shooting mode.…The shooting mode determines what decisions the camera makes…and which ones are up to you.…You can adjust these settings…depending upon how you want to shoot.…For example, sometimes you'll want fine control…over how much of your scene is in focus from front to back.…That's called depth of field.…Apature priority mode works well for this.…Other times, you might want to freeze the action…in a scene for a fast moving subject.…
