Default Settings While Traveling

What are your settings you have while traveling, in case you would need emergency pictures without having to fool with the settings?

    Just switch to P or Auto, preferably P. Set your ISO and white balance both to auto.

    Some people don't realize that you can override aperture and shutter speed in P mode. Half press the shutter button and rotate the command dial and you will see alternative exposure settings. This is called 'program shift' and is covered in your manual on page 113.

    So, if you are not happy with the exposure P mode gives you, you know that you can change it if need be.

  • @jlm86 - My buddy @PBked gave some great advice. In addition to Program mode, I also recommend using the available Scene modes which you can quickly enable using the mode dial.

    This way you can tell your 60D exactly what your shooting (portraits, landscapes, etc...) and it'll adjust the in-camera settings for you. All the best!
