I have had my Canon Rebel T4i for a few weeks now, and I have been dragging my feet on trying out the two new mode positions: Handheld Night Scene and HDR Backlight Control.
I totally recommend using all your camera settings so you know what they do and which ones you like. It’s good to experiment with dial choices so you know which ones you like and don’t like.
Decided to go out in the yard and give the HDR mode a try. It’s kind of gloomy here, which makes for a very strong contrast between the white sky and trees. This is usually a tough situation for the camera.
