Week 4 Lesson

How Does My Canon Digital Rebel XTi Work?
  1. Adjust the ISO by pressing the ISO speed set button on the back of the camera and then pressing one on the cross keys to select the desired speed.  The ISO is set automatically in the basic zones.
  2. Adjust the White Balance by pressing the WB button on the back of the camera and then pressing the left or right cross key to select the desired setting.
  3. Designate a custom WB by photographing a white object or 18% gray card under the desired  lighting, ensuring the object fills the viewfinder center.  Focus manually and set the correct exposure.  In the menu, select "Custom WB" under the "Camera 2" icon and import white balance data by selecting the image captured then pressing "set."  Select custom WB as stated in "2" above. 
  4.  Adjust exposure compensation by holding down the AV+- button on the camera back and turning the main dial left  for darker or right for brighter.  Reset to zero when finished as it does not automatically reset.  
  5. Adjust the flash exposure compensation by selecting "flash exp comp" under the "camera 2" icon in the menu and pressing "set."   Press the right cross key on the back of the camera to make the photo brighter and the left key to make the photo darker, then press "set."  Reset to zero when finished as it does not automatically reset.   
  6. Set file size and compression by selecting "Quality" under the "Camera 1" icon in the menu and press "set."  Select the desired quality and press "set."  
  7. Set the exposure meter mode by pressing the left cross key on the camera back and using the left or right cross key to select the desired mode.
  8. Set macro focusing by turning the mode dial on top of the camera to the tulip image.
  9. Enable the flash mode by pressing the lightening bolt image on the left front of the camera (from behind the camera).  Disable the flash by selecting the "flash-off" mode in the basic zone on the mode dial.  Otherwise it is automatic in the basic zones.
