Setting the scene
CURRENT entry-level cameras have an on-screen features guide. Enable this in the Setup menu to help you find your way around. The 200D and 800D boast a ‘Scene intelligent auto’ mode, signified by a green square with a + symbol. This automatically analyzes compositions, and makes optimal adjustments to shooting parameters. Using scene modes, you can manually select anything from portraits to landscapes. Basic+ modes come with ‘Ambience’ options like vivid, soft, warm, and intense, available via the Q (Quick menu) button.
