A Picture Perfect Moment: What Do Those Camera Symbols Mean? [Infographic]

I snap photos of trees, flowers, my dog, myself, my dinner and my family. I archive some, share some on social media, make some into memes and frame some to admire in my home. Photos and memories are a huge part of my life and I cling to my camera to make sure I can capture precious moments.

Some people estimate that in the past 5 years alone, more photos have been taken than in all of human history, thanks to the ease of smartphones, cameras and computers. I know I take hundreds of photos every month: some good, some bad, but I still struggle to get the full use of all of my camera functions. I was so glad I found this infographic that easily broke down all the cryptic symbols: amateurs and master photographers can benefit from learning them.

  1. For some strange reason, I never read the manual but I do research every single aspect of my new camera/electronics. I rather read it somewhere else and see how other people use it rather than me going through the boring manual.
