Forget exposure, forget it's a boring subject.. Did I get the flower in focus?
Oh, and perhaps I am not getting the whole focus thing. I have 19 things on my camera that can be used to I guess focus on.. For the most part I can't get the all 19 points to light up in my view finder. On this picture I got the squares to light up on the main flower..
He he.. Don't you wish I knew techinical terms?
Why are you laughing at me... Isn't that what those red spots are for? Calling Canon to ask..
Danielle I don't know much abou the 7d but with my
xsi the red dots light up and beep when focus is achieved. It should be somewhere in your manual. I know you have heard that a million times and you remind me a lot of myself. You would rather talk to a human than read a book to find an answer. I promise you though that the manual has all the "technical" information in it that you should need
Ok-- I know how to use the focus red squares and the dial to make them where I want them!!! = )~
It depends which focus mode and which focus area you are using.
You have to make 2 choices to setup how your camera will focus.
.. baby steps.. that is next? Do you mean either in TV or AV? Those are the settings I can use that with.
Kidding! It hard to tell what's in focus. Did you over work a sharpening tool or something? Also, flowers should have enough detail to allow you to manual focus through the view finder with ease. It's a good way to tell if you're using your AF correctly.
Your camera does come with a manual. It explains how the AF system works I believe.
That itty bitty tiny book.. that has no color pictures? Yeah, I have that.. It's in my camera bag. I can never find anything I am looking for.. Like Sunday when my camera was "broken".. Yeah, I pulled it out. I didn't help me.. My head went
theres like 5 modes i think... full auto... zone... center spot... center expanded... and point... not sure if i have the names right
you've got a sick camera... only way to full take advantage of all the technology stuffed in that thing is to go through that tiny no picture book in your bag... another advantage of that is once u know how to use anything, you don't need to carry it in your bag...
