Shoot in AV Mode, so the shutterspeed will be automatily adjusted. The hood has now effect. Only the sensor size, the focal lengh, the aperture and the distance to your object will have effect to your DOF

I dont know if you noticed the button on the right side of your lens mount. This is to control the dof.

Well that button is not to control, is to Preview the DOF, when you press it will stop down the lens to the apperture you have set, so you can see what will be in focus.

The most pictures I take are with AV mode for the depth of field but should I use (M) or (AV)?, this weekend I will try out my lenses with the lens hoods on, to see the differents it makes in the depth of field.

You should always have your camera on 'M' and learn how to use it. :cool: They can take AV, TV and P off of my camera and I couldn't care less.

I really don't want them to take Av off.

Same here. If you can use AV or TV then you should be able to use M just fine as well. All three have their place. Now those other letters and pictures on the dial can piss off for all I care. I remember back in the day I thought swithcing my aperture ring to A was cheating on my old Pentax 50mm on my K1000.

excuse me for my bad english, but in german, control has the same meaning as preview or check.

Don't knock it, some people get so attuned to the settings they need, they are almost as fast as the camera in what to set when while they are in manual mode. I have seen it in action personally. I can't do it, I will admit it. :)

This thread took an odd turn...

FTR - My camera never comes off of M mode, right or wrong it's just the way it is.

I found this article very interesting and it covers many of the things discussed here, including additional items like changes in perspective if you change your distance to the object, samples of large DOF vs small DOF, some tricks you can use via DOF and post processing, and even some geeky equations for the mathematical types here. :)

Ok. I read from a lot of Pros which use AV, TV or even P, when they dont know what will happen next corner, and they also give the suggestion to do so.
I also do sometime use M Mode, but only when AV or TV dont do the trick and my motiv stands still.

Maybe we can turn the thread around into something more educational than whatever track it seemed to be on in the last couple of pages, eh? :D

Pros use whatever modes give them the results they want as they need it, but there are different levels of pros as well. It depends on the experience, skills and familiarity of the equipment by the photographer, combined with whatever situation is being photographed, IMO. There is no right or wrong mode, that is why they all exist, they are just tools to be utilized as needed by the operator.

i know that there is no wright or wrong but i dont like these guys who always have to tell everybody how great they are because they only use M mode and everything else is not pro or not even photography. the best of the best, the king of the road, the biggest cowpat on the pasture.:rolleyes:

Av and Tv are great tools to have available but I rarely use them. Spend some time doing street photography with a medium format film camera that doesn't even have a built-in light meter and you quickly realize that having the right settings is not hard at all if you are paying attention.

...how great they are because they only use M mode...

heh. I stick with M mode because it's easier for me to understand. Av and Tv get too confusing for me.
