Different Camera Modes Info:
Automatic Mode selects the best settings for shutter speed, aperture, ISO, white balance, focus and flash to get the best picture.
Portrait Mode helps the background go out of focus, so your subject is the only thing in focus. It’s best to use the mode on a single subject.
Macro Mode lets you get closer to your subject for a close-up picture, and it works great on small objects like insects.
Landscape Mode keeps the subject, background or most of the scene in focus. It’s better to capture more of a wide scene when using the landscape mode because it tries to capture everything in focus.
Sports Mode is mainly for moving objects. This mode tries to capture or freeze the action of a subject or object. It can be used for moving cars or sports.
Night Mode is for shooting in low light and it helps capture the details in the background but also fires the flash so that it lights up the foreground.
Movie mode allows you to capture moving images like a recording instead of capturing still images.
Aperture Priority Mode
This mode allows you to choose the aperture, but the camera selects the rest of the settings to have a balanced exposure.
Shutter Priority Mode
This mode is like the aperture mode but instead of choosing the aperture, you choose the shutter speed and then the camera selects the rest of the settings.
Program Mode can be fully auto, but it depends on the camera you have, or it can give you a little more control over the settings.
In Manual Mode you control all the settings, like the shutter speed, aperture, ISO, white balance, flash etc. You can control them however you like.
