Is there any documentation about exactly what these modes do? Nope. That's why more advanced photographers who want more control over exposure and processing tend to avoid scene modes and to shoot in RAW. Scene modes generally only affect JPEG images. While there will be documentation in the manual about what the mode was designed to do and how they ...

Is there any documentation about exactly what these modes do? These "application-specific" modes are doing exactly what you would expect : Portrait : big aperture for shallow depth of field, use of the flash for fill-in if the scene is "dark" (desired effect : making the subject "pop out" the picture) Macro : use the shallowest depth of field possible ...

Without knowing specifically what it does, it's difficult to know what it might actually be useful for. It's for landscapes. ("Landscapes" is somewhat vague. And who knows, maybe it's also suitable for tapestries or something?) The point of those modes is that they are good for a specific purpose. Asking what other situations this mode is also ...

Landscape probably stops the lens down a bit more, for greater depth of field? And selects a more vivid color profile (uses the profile named Landscape). Get the free PDF D3300 "Reference Manual" from http://downloadcenter.nikonimglib.com/en/products/21/D3300.html It is a much larger, much more complete manual than the smaller User Manual. The big mode ...

Be sure there is enough time between frames for the exposure. For example, if shooting at the rate of one fps, a two second (or even a one second) exposure won't work. This may require increasing sensitivity (ISO) and/or using a lens with wide aperture. Depending on the sensor and its internal filter, a UV-blocking filter may be needed, as UV may be ...

Try using a digital camcorder that automatically adjusts exposure. Then speed up the video in post. Same effect as timelapse photography. Look into MagicLantern. If you shoot stills, shoot in RAW so you have ample dynamic range in post.

In the Incandescent menu, just adjust the dot back to the 0,0 center position of the colored grid.

does it have to be done while being edited, as through do this my photo has lost a lot of its quality. This is a sign you have an issue with editing ( possibly the quality setting you are saving edited images with at a guess - it's a common issue ? ). Editing and saving the result should not need to reduce the quality of the image in any visually ...

With the updated version 2.x firmware you can shoot with image quality set to RAW, then use the in-camera editing feature to crop to a square and save to jpeg. There should be no loss in quality compared to letting the camera convert the raw data to jpeg when taking the picture. Editing the raw file using a computer should also allow you to produce a photo ...
