Cameras come with a wide variety of high-tech features. Here are some to watch out for.
Exposure modes allow the photographer to set both the aperture (the lens opening) and shutter speed, giving more advanced shooters artistic control of how a camera captures the scene.
High-tech sensors guarantee perfect focus on a face. Some cameras even sense a smile or closed eyes.
Image stabilization helps ensure you take fewer blurry photos. It automatically compensates for slight movements you might make while holding the camera.
Adjusting ISO is helpful in low light when you want more light without a flash. A higher ISO lets in more natural light, but it can also make a photo more grainy.
These systems adjust a camera's white balance, exposure and focus before snapping the photo.
A burst mode lets you take many photos in quick succession. A self-timer mode lets you get in the picture. Check your user manual to learn more about mode options for any scenario you encounter.
New high-quality video capabilities include being able to shoot video at the same time as you're snapping still images.
This feature shows you what your shot will look like with effects like aperture adjustment and other modifiable controls.
Stabilization sensors are attached to individual lenses. A camera with this feature can more precisely detect and correct small movements than a camera with image stabilization.
