Camera setting in Aperture Priority Mode on the Mode Dial.

EXAMPLE: Camera setting in Aperture Priority Mode on the Mode Dial.

The mode dial, or camera dial, on digital cameras is the mechanism used to change the camera’s setting and access different shooting modes. Compact point-and-shoot cameras will generally access the shooting modes through the menu, rather than a mode dial.

The mode dial is usually located on the top of the camera body and offers a variety of shooting options such as: Av, or A (aperture priority), Tv or S (shutter speed priority), M (manual mode), P (program), B (bulb), Auto, Scene, and C (custom). (Not all are shown here).
