Re: Learning more good stuff about Canon FD lenses on the NEX-7

The best modes to use with manual lens are S or P.

(actually A is the same as P in this case anyway)

With S you can control the shutter speed & exposure compensation on the camera, while changing aperture on the lens.

P (or A) is kind of auto mode, where you just worry about the aperture & focus. But you can still change exp.comp.

M is not worth using because its the same as S but without exp.comp.

I use P a lot because its less stuff to worry about. You just set your aperture & focus.

If you have plenty of time to take a photo then S gives you most control, but in the moment P is easiest.
