P is for... Program mode

Program mode (P) sets the aperture and shutter speed values for you, depending on the light levels and your lens. However, Program mode does give you a measure of control-you can change the shutter speed or aperture combination by rotating the Main dial, and the camera will increase one setting while decreasing the other to maintain correct exposure.



Canon offers a full workflow solution, from taking pictures through to printing out the processed images, and the PIXMA PRO series of desktop printers can produce superb, gallery-quality prints. The latest PRO-10S and PRO-100S models offer Cloud connectivity as well as Wi-Fi and Ethernet, so you can produce prints wherever you are.


First seen on the Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM and EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM telephoto lenses, Power Focus is a mode that enables you to drive the electronic focus motor without having to turn the focus ring. Instead, you use the focus preset ring-by turning this a little, you can drive the focus motor slowly, and by turning it a greater distance it can be driven faster. This enables you to do smooth focus pulls with the long lenses, which is particularly useful when shooting movies with EOS DSLRs.
