To follow up on one of B&H’s most successful video trainings, taught by Jeff Cable, which was titled “The 15 features of Photoshop every photographer should know”, Jeff is back to teach “The 15 features of your DSLR that you need to know”. To capture great images, it is imperative that you know these basics. Even seasoned professionals have to become familiar with each new camera body, so that they can react to almost any situation and shoot without delay. This class will cover the most important buttons, menus and dials of your DSLR from the shooting modes, to exposure compensation and flash control. Learn to take control of your DSLR camera and start shooting in creative ways. Jeff shoots with Canon cameras, but the training would pertain to most newer DSLR cameras, regardless of brand.

  1. I think the most importatnt thing is – DO SHOOT MANUAL, then you don't need to care about metering, then you always know what shutter speed you are on

  2. Great lesson. Just a minor statement: he keeps saying "out of focus" when he's really referring to "motion blur". That's could be very confusing for a beginner who's trying to understand the difference between focus and minimal shutter speed.

  3. I enjoyed your vid, Now id like to comment everyone's comprehension level is different, Personally like i think you mentioned for many reading is boring and i think people who write a lot of books Go just to far example photoshop book, paying a lot of money for something that will end up on the shelf collecting dust…
    And many years ago i thought id really like to learn it BUT lost me, so i said to myself why do people do this ? "Keep it simple Stupid" By the way i am more of a hands on person when it comes to learning, tell me to read…NOT
    Anything when teaching someone , NO matter if their 8 to 80, Blind, disabled or crazy can learn it good rule of thumb 😉 taking them by the hand and showing them first hand from start to finish (Hands on and Visual)….Its like in your class how many will walk away knowing everything you explained, Hummmm, yes taking notes, or Bring a recorder, But youtube is great because i can stop,pause and pick back up whenever i have the time and left off…Thank you for this

  4. Thank you Jeff for the video using the SLR camera. Very informative …now that I have gotten info that is easy to understand…..got to practice a lot !! thank you again Jeff.

  5. FYI, ISO is a word, not an abbreviation. From their website;
    "It's all in the name
    Because 'International Organization for Standardization' would have different acronyms in different languages…our founders decided to give it the short form ISO. ISO is derived from the Greek isos, meaning equal. Whatever the country, whatever the language, we are always ISO."

  6. Great educational video… Easy for a noobie like me to follow. I think he was using a BIG lense though right? not the standard 55 one that comes with most

  7. Hi Jeff!  Just found your instructional video thanks to a mention from Flipboard.  Just watched all of it and found it very helpful.  Love the stuff you can't find in any manual.  Thanks for doing it.  I appreciate it.  And thanks to B & H for posting it!

  8. Very helpful tips indeed . In the case of spot metering and recompose, do youneed to lock exposure if you are in aperture priority, ? Whats the difference when you're in Manual? Thanks

  9. why not just go into the fact your camera meters for mid tone?? to say you you are in matrix metering & pointing down a touch & locking exposure is crap. What if someone thinks that is the thing to do but when they do it their view finder is FULL of any tone other than mid tone????? I really don't know why so called teachers don't go into spot metering & learning to estimate tone & make adjustments from there. If you did apply any + exposure comp to that image of the bear & you were in matrix metering you wouldn't have got the shot you did because about 5% of the scene had snow in it!!

  10. I like your humour, Mr Cable. Although it's a bit difficult for beginners to understand while you're talking about settings differences in details. No doubt it's a very informative presentation. Love it! Hope to see more of this!

  11. Thanks for the great lecture, Jeff. I really enjoy your way of teaching.

    One thing left me puzzled though.

    Back Focus is indeed very powerful. You name certrain situations, in which you use it. I like it so much, I would use it all the time. Is there any reason not to do so? I'm still a beginner, but I really don't see any benefits in using the shutter button to focus.

    Especially since you won't have to change the focus-mode-settings ever again.

    Just keep it in servo-mode and…
    …press the AF-On button = fixed focus
    …hold the AF-On button = servo/continuous focus

    Die I get that wrong?

    (I hope nobody stated that before)

  12. Incredibly helpful tips; thank-you very much. I learned a lot more from this for free than I did from some videos I purchased that should have covered a lot of what you shared here.

  13. Thanks so much for the presentation! Not only the content is great, very easy to understand, but can't get enough of Jeff Cable's workshops! Very dynamic and entertaining! Tips very appropriate for someone with a little more understanding of basic shooting. Absolutely great!

  14. Jeff this presentation was INCREDIBLE!! I have been doing photography for about 7 years and the information you provided really helped to bring things together for me. I have never found a use for my view finder and now I am hooked!! Thank you for taking the time to do this for B&H. This is one of the first photography videos I actually watched until the very end. You presented the information so that it was interesting and above all useful. On to The Top 15 Features of Photoshop Every Photographer Should Know.
