Chapter 3: Testing and Custom Settings > Using In-camera Presets

Using In-camera Presets

In-camera options for adjusting your look are settings that control various aspects of the image or picture. The technical terms and menu controls vary depending upon camera manufacturer, but the theory and practice are commensurate. These setups are as follows:

  • Picture-style settings for Canon cameras
  • Picture control system for Nikon cameras
  • Picture modes for Olympus
  • Film modes for Panasonic

A camera may have up to nine modes or presets, and these settings are easily accessible on your camera’s menu options. All of them are preset combinations of different sharpness, contrast, saturation, potentially noise reduction settings, and related variables; each preset can be altered in various ways. These options allow you to choose various aspects of how the image will be adjusted, and they can be used to enhance your image and increase your post-production options.
