From basic to creative
THE SHOOTING mode dial of most Canon cameras is divided into Basic Zone and Creative Zone modes. The former includes Scene modes like Landscape and Portrait, while the latter is for more expert use and contains P (Program), Tv (Time value), Av (Aperture value) and M (Manual) modes. Bridging the gap between the two zones is the CA (Creative Auto) mode. In this case, the Quick menu (Q button) gives access to easily adjusting the background blur by widening or narrowing the aperture. For wider-ranging control over all available shooting attributes, switch to Program mode. A better description is ‘Program shift’ because, while the camera aims to serve up the ideal combination of shutter speed and aperture, you can shift the settings by turning the main dial, next to the shutter button.
The Canon 77D will suit beginners but has enough advanced options for those enthusiasts looking to advance their photography
