  • Auto or Program?
    • Programmed Auto (Flexible)
    • The camera automatically selects aperture and shutter speed - you do the rest.
  • Shutter Priority
    • You select the Shutter Speed , the camera determines the correct Aperture .
  • Aperture Priority
    • You select the Aperture (f-stop, lens opening), the camera determines the correct shutter speed.
  • 4 most important settings Size Quality White Balance ISO
    • Size Matters
    7 MP 10 MP 12 MP 5 MP (million pixels)
  • Pixel Dimensions aka File Size, or Resolution Width x Height Eg. 4000 x 3000 pixels = 12 Mega Pixels
  • Pixel Dimensions
    • Example: Image size options of a Nikon D40x
      • Small 1936 x 1296 = 2.5 MP
      • Medium 2896 x 1944 = 5.6 MP Large 3872 x 2592 = 10 MP
  • Pixel Dimensions By comparison a file going into a screen presentation only needs to be: 900 x 600 pixels = 0.54 MP
  • Compression
    • JPGS are small because they are compressed
    • Lossy compression
    • Throws out file information
    • A little or a lot depending on the quality
  • Compression
    • Normal - Fine - Super Fine
    • Basic - Normal - Fine
    • Good - Better - Best
    Always use the highest possible compression quality

  • WHITE BALANCE Cameras measure the colour of light reflected from the scene
  • WHITE BALANCE A large brightly coloured area can effect your Auto WB readings.
  • In those cases you may have to use a pre-set to get a better result.
