Digital Camera Fundamentals (Full Online)
If you are getting into digital photography, understanding the digital features of your camera is absolutely essential. This webinar explains in simple terms the basic settings you must choose in your camera before you even touch your exposure controls (ISO, Aperture and Shutter Speed).
The wrong choice can lead to disastrous result. For example, what resolution should you choose; what quality option should you save your jpeg file; what color space should you use for your jpeg file; should you choose camera raw or jpeg; and many more decisions. Your choice can limit your print size or affect the quality of the image reproduction.
This seminar is also a good starting point for those who have not made a choice as to what digital camera to buy. There is no substitute for being an informed buyer!
