7 Camera Setting Mistakes Most Beginners Make

Posted on

2. EV Compensation

Now that you’ve selected the right exposure mode, but the image still looks too bright or too dark? Solve this by adjusting the EV (Exposure Value) until the image on the screen is exposed correctly. At its simplest, EV+ changes will make the image brighter, and EV- changes will make the image darker. An ideal EV setting for one scene can be totally wrong for another photo. So, always adjust EV setting according to the specific lighting.

But be aware that you can’t change the EV in Manual Mode as the exposure compensation is achieved by adjusting ISO or the shutter speed.

3. ISO

Too much noise in the picture? High ISO allows you to shoot at fast shutter speeds or in low-light environments, but it also leads to increased noise. During the daytime, a high ISO typically results in an overly-bright and noisy image. For this reason, make sure to check if you’ve set the ISO too high if an image has too much noise.

If you’re not sure about how to set the ISO, try using Auto ISO so that your camera will automatically select proper ISO value.
