How to Change the Auto “Priority” Setting on Canon EOS Rebel T6?
The settings of the Canon flip screen DSLR EOS Rebel T6/1300D can be too complex for a new user. Beginners may need some time to get accustomed to the various settings of a Canon EOS Rebel T6.
And apart from the other complexities, the Canon flip screen DSLR EOS Rebel T6/1300D got a new feature added to its auto white-balancing settings.
The auto function of the Canon EOS Rebel T6/1300D can be used in two ways.
But, the difference between the two functions can only be spotted when you shoot in incandescent lightning or any other lightning condition under the kelvin temperature, which is also known as a color cast.
The two different settings of the Canon flip screen DSLR EOS Rebel T6 /1300D auto white-balancing are:
White Priority Auto and the Ambiance Priority Auto. Let’s break them down.
White Priority Auto in Canon EOS Rebel T6/1300D
In the White Priority Auto of the Canon vlogging camera EOS Rebel T6/1300D, the result that is produced is kind if similar to the normal auto mode.
In the White Priority Mode, the rendition of colors is done accurately.
In this mode, if you shoot a subject under a yellow light, it will cut the yellow light of the subject and make it appear more whitish.
This setting is commonly used when people are shooting food subjects in which the subject is made brighter, giving it a more appetizing look.
Note: If you are using flash while shooting in the White Priority Mode, the White Priority Mode will be turned off.
And in the event the Auto mode of the Canon EOS Rebel T6/1300D is set to White Priority Mode, then the Canon vlogging camera EOS Rebel T6/1300D will use the color compensating formula just like the settings of the Ambience Priority Mode.
Ambiance Priority Mode in Canon EOS Rebel T6/1300D
The primary concept of the Ambiance Priority Mode of the Canon vlogging camera EOS Rebel T6/1300D is to retain the incandescent lighting of a subject which is just opposite to the White Light Priority Mode.
This mode flatters the skin tones because of the warm colors, which is an ideal choice for indoor portrait shooting.
This is the same setting that one would have acquired while shooting in the Auto mode of the previous Canon DSLR cameras. In this setting, all the P, Tv, Av, and M exposure modes are used except while shooting food scenes.
The best thing about this set is that whichever Auto setting you are choosing, there won’t be much difference in the result.
As said above, the difference between the two settings can only be noticed when one is shooting in incandescent lighting conditions.
Moreover, the effectiveness of the settings is also dependent on the subject, along with the lighting condition of the subject’s ambiance. Most of the time, the difference between the two settings will be hard to notice.
To change the settings to any of the two modes, first, you will need to select the Auto settings from the White Balance screen.
You can get to the stings by either pressing the WB button or by selecting the Quick Control screen. In the quick Control screen, highlight the Auto option and then press the Button ‘Set’, and then press the DISP button.
From the details settings, you will find the two options AWB and the AWBW setting. Choose the one by highlighting them and then press set. Now, press set once again, and you will be brought back to the shooting screen.
