Menu Basics And Highlights, Part 1 With Corazon Christman Article By Leonard Wolff

You could resize several images, clearing up some room on the installed memory card. Moving to the next section, since I normally shoot natural images, I set my picture style to Neutral.

You could resize several images, clearing up some room on the installed memory card. Moving to the next section, since I normally shoot natural images, I set my picture style to Neutral. From what I can tell, Neutral and Faithful are the two styles that process this jpg preview as closely to what was captured as possible. Many of the items that used to be Custom made Functions with the 40D are now regular menu items. However, the “ISO Speed Settings” option in the menu does offer access to the Auto ISO parameters. It instantly says that with the DIGIC II, your canon camera has faster start-up time, playback and auto focus while giving your images the brilliance. There is one situation I could see myself using Auto ISO, but sadly Canon seems to have left that probability on the drawing board.

New Canon EOS 1Dx Searching through the menus on the Canon 5D Mark III, I can see that much has changed since my 40D was originally introduced. I don’t just like having unknown variables introduced by the camera. This is one of the new perpetual competition design for a canon digital camera that fits the hands perfectly. This kids is furnished with Optical Image Stabilizer (that is what the IS in S2 IS stands for) that removes camera shakes for people who have unstable hands or to take camera shots. S2 shoots at 30 frames per second; this shooting rate can be reduced when taking pictures in night display, to give you the brightness that you need when taking photos. If you routinely find yourself checking the concentrate of an image on the camera’s FLAT SCREEN screen, setting the magnification to a higher value here will instantly move you into the image further without the need to use the Main Dial.

Since the camera always meters at the center focus point when any mode other than evaluative metering is used, I sometimes find myself pointing the center focus point somewhere, setting the Exposure Lock, and then recomposing my shot. And so i always use mirror lockup in long publicity situations, to raise the mirror, and then allow a few seconds to pass before pressing the button on the remote again to consider the real photograph. With this option set to off, the camera will not take photos in that type of circumstance and will warn you that the card is missing.

With the USB 2. 0, you can take benefit of your super hi-speed SD credit card. The next option regarding shooting without a card is much more important. The next section has one of the most crucial settings I could ever recommend changing, outside of not allowing the camera to shoot without a card. I’ll cover AEB more in depth in an upcoming article involving the 5D Mark III and how I shoot HDR, although I did want to say it though. I should mention that We often do as much as We can with the various buttons on the camera, including exposure compensation, while looking through the viewfinder.

This option, and a camera remote, is essential for long exposure and nighttime photography. This is a 5. 0 mega pixel Canon digital camera that features a 12x optical zoom and a 4x digital zoom. The SD500 is the first 7. 1 mega pixel canon digital camera that offers amazing images and absolutely to die for details. Moving on to the Play-back Menu, you’ll find the bottom option on the first section is Raw Image Processing. On the last section of the Camera settings menu, I find the Meter Timer option very helpful. Any camera movement will do this, even the click of the mirror being raised, which is what you an using this option to avoid. This option is Highlight Notify, or the ‘blinkies’ as it is sometimes called.

The image must be in either histogram or fullscreen views for the Highlight Aware of notify you. With the Movie Snap feature, just snap away when you see that perfect image, and it will be saved in your canon digital camera along with the recorded video. I could see this even being useful when the camera is utilized in conjunction with a monopod. Only the slightest shake will blur the details in those types of shots, even on a good sturdy tripod. The “External Speedlight Control” menu comes in really handy for adjusting an external flash from the camera, as opposed to the flash’s buttons.

One of the most under-utilized menu options, for some photographers, I’ve come across is “Mirror Lockup”. The easiest way to navigate the menu is using a combination of the Quick Control button and the Multi-Controller. Use the Quick Control button to quickly change tabs, while using the Multi-Controller to change the sections on a tab and move up or down. This has been available on camera for years, but as I’ve said it is quite often under-utilized. Similar to that ability, is the ability to resize images in the camera.
