Some recent Canon cameras (at least EOS RP) have a flexible priority (Fv) mode. Apparently, it does auto-exposure but allows setting various settings manually, too.
- What does this mode exactly do?
- What's so good about it?
- What can be done with Fv mode that can't be done easily on a traditional camera not having the Fv mode?
To me, the Fv mode looks like another way of jumping between P, Av, Tv and M. So, to me, this is duplicated functionality on the camera, and just moves some settings from the main mode dial to the rear top dial.
About the only good feature of Fv seems to be very easy access to exposure compensation (I haven't figured out how to set exposure compensation on EOS RP without using the menu in P, Av, Tv and M+auto-ISO modes), but that's nothing revolutionary; my 2000D allows easy access to exposure compensation.
Oh, and one benefit of Fv is that the "mode guide" isn't displayed for ~10 seconds when changing what is set manually and what is set automatically. Moving the main mode dial at least on EOS RP shows the annoying "mode guide".
However, these seem to be minor user interface glitches. Is there something revolutionary in the Fv mode that I'm not seeing?
