eROI MASTERCLASSSHUTTER BUTTON
The Shutter Button is the most important button on the camera. Press this button to snap a picture.
This is a two-phase button, meaning you press the button down halfway to initiate the auto-focus. Once you have your image focused, press the button down all the way to snap a picture.
eROI MASTERCLASSMODE DIAL
The Mode Dial is where you select your shooting mode.
If you want the Camera to automatically adjust all settings, including shutter speed, aperture and ISO, then you should select the automatic shooting mode. Otherwise, if youd like more creative control you can select manual, aperture-priority or shutter speed-priority.
eROI MASTERCLASSMAIN DIAL
The Main Dial is how you cycle through various settings, such as shutter speed or aperture.
When shooting in shutter speed-priority or aperture priority mode you can quickly cycle through the range of options with this dial.
eROI MASTERCLASSFORCE FLASH
The Force Flash button is handy if you have the flash turned off, but want to initiate the flash for just one photo.
Sometimes we turn off the flash on purpose, but we might want to shoot with a flash sparingly. This is a great button to achieve this workflow.
eROI MASTERCLASSLENS RELEASE
The Lens Release is the button you press when you want to remove the lens from your camera body.
Press this button and twist the lens out from the camera. Be very careful to not allow any dust into the camera body during this process.
eROI MASTERCLASSDEPTH OF FIELD PREVIEW
The Depth of Field Preview button allows you to preview the depth of field of your composition.
The depth of field of your composition is dependent on the aperture setting. A smaller aperture will likely result in a darker photo with a deeper depth of field. Conversely, a larger aperture will likely result in a brighter photo with a shallower depth of field.
eROI MASTERCLASSONE TOUCH RAW/JPEG
The One Touch RAW/JPEG button allows you to shoot just one RAW or one JPG file, depending on your cameras recording settings.
If the current recording quality is JPEG only, you can press this button to also capture a RAW image at the same time. If the current quality is RAW only, press this button to also capture a JPEG image.
