If you are getting into digital photography, understanding your camera’s digital features is essential. This webinar explains the basic settings you must choose in your camera before touching your exposure controls (ISO, Aperture, and Shutter Speed).

The wrong choice can lead to disastrous results. For example, what resolution should you choose; what quality option should you save your jpeg file; what color space should you use for your jpeg file; should you choose camera raw or jpeg; and many more decisions. Your choice can limit your print size or affect the image reproduction quality.

This seminar is also a good starting point for those who have not to decided digital camera to buy. There is no substitute for being an informed buyer!
