1. Getting to Know the Rebel T1i > Using Scene Modes

Using Scene Modes

Now you’ve seen how the T1i’s Full Auto mode works. Since Full Auto mode takes care of all the critical decisions regarding camera settings, it’s an ideal mode for snapshot shooting and for getting used to the camera. Before you go off shooting, though, let’s take a quick look at some other auto features that you might find useful while getting started.

On the Mode dial, you’ll see a bunch of little icons underneath the Full Auto option. These are the T1i’s scene modes.

These options on the Mode dial are scene modes, which bias the camera’s decisions under specific conditions so that it calculates more appropriate exposures.

Scene modes are also fully automatic, but each one biases some of its decisions in a certain way to make it more appropriate to particular types of shooting.
