Shooting Modes

"Every camera is equipped with pre-programmed modes which help the photographer to concentrate immediately on a shot. These pre-programmed modes help set shutter speed, aperture, ISO, white balance, focus and flash to capture shots in the best possible manner. Automatic Mode (Auto Mode) Auto mode tells your camera to use its best judgement to select shutter speed, aperture, ISO, white balance, focus and flash to take the best shot that it can. Program (P) In Program mode, your camera will automatically set the shutter speed and aperture, but will allow you to choose ISO, white balance, exposure compensation, flash options etc. Shutter Priority (TV) In Shutter Priority mode, you select the shutter speed and ISO and the camera will automatically choose the proper f-stop for what it determines to be the correct exposure. Aperture Priority (AV) In Aperture Priority mode, you select the aperture and ISO and the camera will automatically choose the proper shutter speed for what it determines to be the correct exposure. Manual (M) Manual mode allows you to change both the shutter speed and aperture settings independently from each other. No settings will be automatically set by the camera. Your camera's built-in light meter will guide you on the exposure it determines to be correct, but you have complete control to adjust the shutter and aperture separately to get the exposure you determine to be correct for the image you are creating."
