TAv mode tips and tricks?
4 months ago

Had an unexpected chance at a second day at the zoo today, and just for fun decided to set the K-30 on TAv mode for the first time and leave it there for the whole day. (I have been working pretty much exclusively in aperture priority so far.) I haven't had a chance to download my images yet due to computer issues which are another topic entirely, but things look good on the LCD screen and I found working in TAv gave me a feeling of genuine direct control of my exposure and dramatically improved my shooting experience when moving in and out of different environments.  I can't wait to try it with a prime.

I'll share pics when I get a chance. (I sincerely hope I got at least a couple of good ones, since my favorite subjects, the African Painted Dogs, were in excellent form.)  But until then, does anybody have any advice for getting the most out of a K-30 set to TAv?
