Automatic Mode

The automatic mode is a setting on your camera that allows the camera to use its internal meter to automatically adjust the aperture and shutter speed for a shot based on the prescribed ISO speed of your film, and the available light. When using studio flash units, you can not leave your camera in automatic mode, as its internal meter will not be able to detect the light that will be emitted by your flash units, and will thus be set to an inaccurate shutter speed and aperture opening, causing your picture to be overexposed. Furthermore, when in automatic mode, many cameras have TTL metering which will send out an infrared signal to read the light, and that signal may inadvertently trip your unit’s built-in slave tripper.
