Example text

Some modes function fully automatically, much like a point-and-shoot camera, while others are semiautomatic, giving you control over key exposure settings; there is a manual mode that gives you control over all the exposure and other camera settings. The Mode dial is divided into two sections: the Basic Zone, and the Creative Zone. The Basic Zone section of the Mode dial identifies different modes using icons such as a person’s head to designate Portrait mode, a running person to designate Sports mode, and so on.

If the amount of under- or overexposure is +/- 2 Exposure Values (EV), the exposure level indicator bar blinks to show the amount of plus or minus EV in the viewfinder and on the LCD panel. You can then adjust either the aperture or shutter speed until the exposure level you want is displayed. A-DEP mode A-DEP, or Automatic Depth of Field, mode automatically calculates the optimum depth of field between near and far subjects. ADEP mode uses the camera’s nine AF points to detect near and far subject distances, and then calculates the aperture needed to keep the subjects in sharp focus.

However, keep in mind that the camera defaults to using the builtin flash in low-light scenes, although you may not want or need to use the flash. Also remember that in all modes, the lens that you choose enhances your creative control. In Full Auto mode, the camera is set to AI Focus AF mode, which means that if the subject begins moving, the camera automatically switches to AI Servo AF mode to track the subject’s movement and maintain focus. Autofocus modes are detailed later in this chapter.
