Manual or Automatic Mode?

Do you know when to use the manual (M) settings in your camera?

The automatic (P) settings is a good option for photos and videos that you cannot plan when to shot. Like when you are exploring a new study area or taking photos of birds in a nature reserve.

But if you have time to plan your photos and video scenes, choose the manual (M) settings. Doing that, you will have more control of your camera and can better decide options as shutter speed, aperture and ISO.
