Exposure mode quick guide

Your Canon Rebel T5i/700D offers the following exposure modes, which you select via the Mode dial on top of the camera.

(Modes described as automatic scene modes in the table offer fully automatic photography, but some let you alter color and exposure slightly through the Shoot by Ambience and Shoot by Lighting or Scene Type features.)
