I am having trouble with keeping the same shutter speed between shooting photos? I am using a Canon Rebel T7. I'm not sure where in the menu I need to go to correct this issue. I am new to photography and need all the help I can get.

I am in Manual mode. If I set my shutter speed to say 1/30s and take my photo, when I go to shoot a similar shot right away, I have to reset the shutter speed again.

I guess what I'm asking is can I do something to keep that shutter speed the same until I decide to change it?

  • \$\begingroup\$ That camera has 4 main modes: P (Program), Tv (Shutter Priority), Av (Aperture Priority) and M (Manual). Both P and Av modes will vary the shutter speed to suit the exposure. Do you know what mode you are shooting photos in? And do you have the manual? \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ OK, then I don't think I fully understand what the problem is that you are having. Can you give a concrete example of what you are experiencing? \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ That sounds more like you're in Av or P mode. Check in the viewfinder, to the left of your shutter speed, does it say "M"? In M mode, neither the aperture nor the shutter speed should change unless you change it. Are you accidentally turning the control wheel under your right forefinger? \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ Can you photos of you rear screen in manual mode after pressing on the "Q" button, just before taking a picture and just after (obviously once the photo preview is gone)? \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ What do you mean by "I have to reset the shutter speed again"? What if you don't? What happens then? What shutter speed is used? \$\endgroup\$

1 Answer 1


Turn off Auto Exposure Bracketing (AEB) under the 'Shooting 2' (Red Tab 2) Menu → 'Expo.comp./AEB' setting.

You can also access Exposure Compensation/AEB settings via the 'Quick Control Screen' by pressing the 'Q' button.

It's covered on pages 116-119 of the EOS Rebel T7/1500D Instruction Manual
