Grab video code:
A program mode is indicating with a P on your mode dial. this is the mode I use most of the time. Because it really gives me all the flexibility I need, but the camera will still choose the proper aperture and shutter forming so in the back you can see that the mode is up to P for program, now unlike the auto mode I have access to ISO and light balance.
I can also choose one shot focusing, if I do not want the camera to continuously focus and I can choose if I want a single drive or continuously drive or the timer mode. But the camera still automatically sets in aperture and shatter forming.
Now, press the shutter button half way with the right aperture and shatter speed will be choosing from me in order to capture a well exposed picture. I also have control over using the flash, to turn the flash on just press the flash button here and the flash will pop, to turn the flash off, just close the flash.
With the flash, close it. Will not automatically pop as it would in the automatic mode, if I am not using the flash I can press my shatter button half way to get this values, if I am not happy with this values for example, if I want to change the aperture in order to get everything in focus if I am shooting a landscape. Then I can move my index finger to the dial and move aperture over. It will aromatically compensate by changing the shatter speed simultaneously, If I am shooting sports and I want to choose a fast shatter speed then I will just do the same thing, move the dial over and choose a flash shatter speed. And then go back to the shatter button before this values disappear. Because once they disappear and I press the shatter button again, it will go back to the original deform values the camera thinks so appropriate.
The other reason I really like using this mode, is because it allows me to choose the focus point. Choosing the focus point is very simple, just press the auto focus point, select your button right here and you can see in the back that I can change using the dial on the top, where my focus point is going to be located.
Usually I choose the center option. This is the easiest for me, I look through the view finder. Position that center focusing point over my subject. Press the shutter button half way it will blink red and it will sound a double beep, if I maintain the shutter button press half way I can done recompose the image with out the camera re focusing and then I will just press the shutter button the rest of the way to take a picture.
