Project Description

Take a well-exposed photo using the manual settings of you Canon DSLR.

To help you quickly find buttons that we talk about in this course, I've created several cheat sheets for different Canon DSLR cameras.

As we've mentioned, we'll be using a Canon T7i in the demonstrations which is part of the Rebel Series. If you have any of the Rebel cameras, you shouldn't have a problem following along with the course videos.

If you are using a different line of cameras such as the 70D, 80D, 5D, 6D, 7D, SL2 or other, you should be able to find a similar button/feature using our downloadable cheat sheets or by looking at your camera's manual. We've included a list of Canon camera manuals in the next lesson.

We've created cheat sheets for several of the most popular models:

  • Rebel Series Cameras

  • 6D Mark II

  • SL2

  • 80D

If you have a previous or newer version of any of these cameras, that particular cheat sheet should still be able to help you out as most of the camera bodies are similar in each line.

If none of these cheat sheets help you with your model, please post a question to the course and we'll try to make a new cheat sheet soon!

Enjoy!
