A80 LCD display, aperture, shutter...HELP ME!!!!
Hi! I'm new to photography, so pls excuse any incorrect terminology and such. I am trying to get my A80 to display aperture/shutter speed settings on the lcd in program mode. The manual says it is capable, but I can't get it to show up. Today, in photography class, I learned how to use the exposure lock feature on my film SLR (canon rebel ti). Is there a way to do this or no (not the exposure lock, but to find out what speed & aperture the camera is set at)?
Am I making sense? I feel confused! Basically, I would like to point my camera at the ceiling and see what it "reads" (fstop & shutter speed), then at the floor, then at my toddler, etc., etc. This reading helps me to learn. OK, I hope I haven't confused you further. Please help out a clueless newbie if you can. Thanks!
