That's for sure.
I have been reading Nina's book. Sections of it are like reading a physics textbook. It is an excellent resource, but I have to wonder, who is going to read all that and understand it?
Canon's manual is 963 pages, Nina's book 564 pages... plus if that is not enough, there are YouTube videos and detailed websites to help.
Or forget about all that and just use the defaults.
Yes! The defaults are sounding pretty good at this point, lol! I had a very frustrating time this weekend. I was working with a still life and using the tripod. Got the focus point on the screen but when I used the shutter button the screen went to the black Info screen. I don't know what I did. The back screen would not stay on for me. I looked at the Screen/Viewfinder setting and it was on the one that would switch between the two which should have been right. I tried all of the settings the screen kept disappearing. I ended up using the Reset button, grrr. That fixed it. I wish I knew what I had done to mess it up.
I also downloaded and installed the latest firmware. I've never done a firmware update but figured it would be easy. It took me forever! I kept getting the screen that says Update with "Cancel" and "OK" but "OK" was grayed out so I thought I had done something wrong with the memory card. The 3rd or 4th YouTube video finally mentioned that the "OK" might be grayed out and to use the back wheel to move to "OK", the touch screen won't work for this. Well, that was my answer. Boy did I feel dumb, LOL!
We went to the Denver Botanic Gardens last week for the Blossoms of Light event. I didn't trust myself with the camera so I used the Handheld Night Scene setting. It did okay, some of the shots had a really high ISO. This one is okay.
