Example text

If You Need to Start Over If you’re new to digital SLR cameras, you may avoid changing camera settings for fear that it will “mess up” the pictures you’re getting, or that you’ll forget how to reset the camera if you don’t like the changes you’ve made. Canon provides a reset option, which means that you can revert to the original camera settings to have a fresh start at any time. To reset the camera to the default settings, just press the Menu button, press the right cross key to select the Set-up 3 (yellow) menu, and then press the down cross key to select Clear settings.

And because the XSi/450D offers a variety of Picture Styles that change the way that image contrast, saturation, sharpness, and color are rendered, you can get very nice prints with no editing on the computer. Picture Styles are detailed in Chapter 3. RAW format RAW files store image data directly from the camera’s sensor to the media card with a minimum of in-camera processing. Unlike JPEG images, which you can view in any image-editing program, you must view and convert RAW files using Canon’s Digital Photo Professional program or another program such as Adobe Lightroom or Adobe Camera Raw.

In Basic Zone shooting modes such as Portrait, Landscape, and so on, the camera automatically sets the file format to JPEG, but you can set image size and compression level. In Basic Zone modes, you can’t select the RAW format. In Creative Zone modes — P, Tv, Av, M, and A-DEP — you can select any of the JPEG options as well as RAW or RAW+JPEG. To set the image quality in both Basic and Creative Zone modes, follow these steps: 1. Turn the Mode dial to a Basic Zone mode. Basic Zone modes are indicated by icons such as a person’s head for Portrait mode, mountains for Landscape mode, and so on.
