Beyond the Basics

Beyond the Basics - Moving beyond Auto Mode on a Sony Alpha camera

A seminar designed to get you beyond Auto mode on your Sony Alpha camera

This one-hour seminar-style movie uses the slide deck I used for my talks at Sony Australia’s Camera Clinics in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney in May 2018. The talk were pitched to new Alpha users who shoot predominantly in Auto mode on the A6K series of cameras (A600, A6300 and A6500). It is designed to give the new user confidence to leave Auto occasionally to use some settings that are off-limits when using Auto Mode. The presentation looks first at the SCN Mode Settings – which settings make perfect sense and which can be modified for a specific reason. The presentation also look at why it is sometimes necessary to leave Auto and SCN for a Semi-Auto shoot mode setting such as ‘Aperture Priority’. Mark aims to keep this simple so he only gives you the fewest number of settings required to achieve truly professional results.
