How to use a camera: exposure modes made simple
How to control depth of field in Aperture Priority mode
1 Select the aperture
Set A or Av on the exposure mode dial and use the main input dial to select the aperture. This value will remain even if the camera can’t select a suitable shutter speed, so half-press the shutter to check that a shutter speed is also shown.
2 Apply Exposure Compensation
The metering will automatically adjust the shutter speed, but Exposure Compensation may be needed to increase or decrease the exposure. This will only affect the shutter speed, not the aperture.
