Canon 80D

"Hi thanks for the Help. Perhaps you can help? I have everything enabled for Live View on my 80D and when I am in manual mode and shutter priority mode in Live View I can adjust settings (aperture & shutter speed ) and see the Histogram move as the screen gets lighter or darker (exposure simulation )....but that does not happen when I am in Aperture Mode under Live View... is it not supposed to as the other 2 modes mentioned do? Any Help? thanks"

Thanks for your question about manual and aperture priority settings with your Canon EOS 80D.

I'm not 100% sure I understand your question, but I'll try to answer. I wish I was there in person to see exactly what is happening as you are setting your 80D settings. When you're in manual mode each change you dial in when you change the aperture will change the exposure (and the histogram) because you're changing the size of the lens opening and the camera is not changing the shutter speed.

In Aperture priority, each time you change the aperture your 80D is AUTOMATICALLY changing the shutter speed to keep the exposure constant. In this case the histogram should not change.

Feel free to reply if this doesn't hep with your question about your 80D exposure settings and its histogram.

Exposure Simulation With Canon EOS 80D
by: Paul

Thanks Bruce ... Got myself all confused but I figured it out thanks for the help. Paul

Hi Paul, glad you got it figured out with your EOS 80D and its histogram. It's really a great camera and I hope you get to use it over and over again. I'm a big user of histograms-I find them very useful-particularly watching to see that I have't blown away any pixels in the in highlight areas.

I've been using a 70D for several years, and am seriously considering getting a 90D.
Good luck,
Bruce
