Aperture priority mode ranges from f1/8 to f4.9 for taking snaps is low-light conditions.
ISO 100 to 12800, all shot with these settings: Evaluative Metering, Aperture priority at f/4.0
Designed to give users even more creative freedom in a compact body, the P300 comes equipped with several features commonly found in D-SLR cameras such Aperture Priority (A), Shutter Priority (S) and Full Manual (M) Control.
More experienced users can choose their settings with additional shooting modes such as Aperture Priority and Shutter Priority.
He said: "I usually set the camera to aperture priority mode, in this case f8, for better quality and some depth of field.
As well as an idiotproof point and shoot mode, you get aperture priority, shutter priority and manual tool.
The Casio QV-3500EX has a full range of exposure controls, including shutter and aperture priority, and is completely automatic and fully manual.
It works as follows: With the camera on aperture priority and the Nikon SB24 (25 or 26) flash on TTL and rear curtain synch, you notch the strobe down three stops in compensation and the camera 0.7 of a stop -- all toward underexposure -- and use the strobe in bounce position with only a narrow piece of fill card pointing toward the subject.
Maximum shutter speed can be ensured whatever the changing light levels by setting your camera to aperture priority and opening up the lens to its maximum aperture--say f/4: the camera will then set the corresponding shutter speed (the fastest) for the metered exposure reading.
The best way to get around this issue is to keep the camera in Aperture priority mode so that you only have to worry about changing the aperture.
Set it on aperture priority with the aperture at f/8 and the ISO at 100.
It has four main controls: aperture priority, programme, shutter priority and full manual control.
