Canon SD770 IS: Set Auto Mode Function
The auto mode is the default mode when you first buy your camera and take it out of the box. Turn the camera on and you’ll have the auto mode selected the way you can set the auto mode is by pressing the function button right here in the center just press function to access the function menu and at the top you have the different mode function so down here you can see the list of the different modes. Minus currently set to manual but the one just to the left go on and press the left navigation button here to access auto.
Now what auto is going to do it’s going to set the ISO to automatic. The wide balance to automatic and you don’t have control over you exposure compensation or metering and the flash is also set to automatic. You can turn the flash off but what you can’t do is force the flash to fire and this can be also very, very limiting because in a daylight situation for example if you want to eliminate shadows from your subject. You need to force the flash because the camera is going to assume there’s enough light and it won’t up to use the flash if it’s set to automatic.
And the reason why this may not be so good is because and especially with the wide balance you don’t have control like you would with the manual mode over things like wide balance and ISO. Especially with wide balance the auto wide balance is really just fine for outdoors in the daylights or it maybe even cloudy but indoors was there is tungsten or fluorescent it’s really not going to be very good at all, so what I prefer doing is using the manual mode which is right here.
This gives me control over the wide balance and I can just scroll down to change the wide balance if I’m indoors I can set that to tungsten for example or fluorescent depending on my lighting situation. Now, this is going to produce much, much better color and the camera’s still automatically sets or the right exposure so it does give you control but you don’t need to worry the camera is still very, very automated. So I prefer using manual for that reason.
