Example text

With the XSi/450D, you can switch between modes and be assured of getting great shots regardless of the mode you use. This chapter explains each of the shooting modes on the Rebel XSi/450D to help you get the most out of them. Choosing a Shooting Mode A shooting mode determines how and what kinds of exposure settings are set. In addition, these modes determine whether you or the camera sets all or part of the exposure settings and other controls, including the autofocus (AF), white balance, shooting speed, and metering mode.

Basic Zone shooting modes The Basic Zone shooting modes are grouped together on one side of the Mode dial. They are the modes denoted by pictorial icons and by a green rectangle. The icons depict commonly photographed scenes or subjects. For example, the mountain icon denotes Landscape mode and gives exposure settings that provide acceptable sharpness from back to front in the image. To do this, the XSi/450D sets a narrow aperture (large f-stop number) based on the light to provide an extensive depth of field.

A low ISO such as 100 means that the sensor is less sensitive to light and needs more light to make the exposure. Note On digital cameras, high ISO sensitivity settings amplify the output of the sensor so that less light is needed. However, the amplification also increases digital noise, which has a grainy appearance, as well as unwanted color flecks particularly in the shadow areas of an image. High ambient temperatures and high ISO settings increase the incidence of digital noise. ✦ Aperture.
