Exposure modes allow photographers more control over the amount of light used to capture images.
- Automatic Exposure (AE Mode): Will detect light levels and set the exposure accordingly.
- Manual Exposure (M Mode): Allows photographers to set aperture area and shutter speed for hands-on control over exposure.
- Aperture Priority (AP Mode): Camera will compensate with appropriate shutter speed to give the best picture.
- Exposure Compensation (EV Mode): Gives photographers the ability to alter auto exposure settings for artificial control over the amount of light in a picture.
- Program AE (P Mode): Functions much like auto exposure, but give photographers more detailed control over a number of possible settings.
- Shutter-Priority Auto Mode (S Mode): Allows photographers to select a shutter speed while the camera sets the aperture for correct exposure.
