Time of Year All year round on specified dates
What we aim to cover We try to tailor all our sessions to suit our guests, so we do not always cover all the topics depending on the individual needs. Typical topics we can cover in this session are: Setting up your camera for wildlife, back button focus, animal tracking, focus modes, eye focus

The new range of Canon mirrorless cameras have many of the features you may be used to seeing on the traditional mirrored version, but once you start diving into the menu systems there is so much more you can set up to help you with your photography. New technology brings amazing opportunities but also presents challenges in terms of mastering new features and more complex set-ups.

This can be daunting and sometimes you simply don’t understand why you would want to set it up differently to how it comes out of the box. With so many new tools and the customisable ability to assign different features to different buttons, we will talk you through these features and why you might want to play around with the set-up to really get the best out of these very capable cameras to better your wildlife photography.

Whilst of course, the photographer is always more important than the camera, if you are concentrating on wildlife and capturing those fleeting action shots, the customised set ups we will run through, should really help you to record these exciting moments.

After the course is complete, we will, of course, send you through all of the notes from the session, giving you plenty of time to play around and set things up with your camera, in your own way and at your own pace.

Topics covered will include:

Basic auto focus set up

Using subject tracking and eye tracking

Options for assigning button functions

Exposure setting options
