Hi. What camera functionalities and features you are using the most?

Personally I don't use a lot of them, I do shoot in manual mode, and some times in automatic mode.

When shooting with my little m50, I use some of features, like hdr, panoramic effect, and others. On my 7d m2, don't really using any features, apart from high speed frames or slow shutter speed.

How about you?

I\m using M usually :D , and doing rest work in LIghtroom or photoshop ;D , I just like to have control on everything I'm doing and how my pictures looks like :p .
but sometimes I use focus stacking, bracketing, ad Black and white-art functions ;) , my camera has a lot of them ;P , but I don't like automatic :D .
and I love shoot with manual focus too ;) ;D

I shoot manual most of the time. I use continuos focus but i use BBF so its only on when I activate the focus button, having said that I also use mostly manual focus for macro. My method for most of my subjects is to rock back and forth to hit focus anyways so it doesnt matter too much if i use auto or manual autofocus, to help with focus I use a combination of magnification window and focus peaking. I only shoot RAW. Flash - Manual. Only thing i set is my focus limiter on macro lens (if using AF) and turn on/off image stabilisation if im on a tripod.

I work with my new mirrorless camera since 1 month, and I really like it !
I find many functions, options very usefull !
For exemple :

Post focus -> the camera take many pictures with different focus, then you can choose pictures you want to keep, and you can stack them too !

4K shots -> the camera takes a king of video, then you can choose the frame you want to keep and save as picture !

Auto focus -> I used manual focus with my reflex, but the auto focus off my new camera is very good and fast.
When I put it on manual focus, I can change focus using lens ring OR a button AF wich make the focus like AUTOFOCUS 1 time, verrrry usefull for water drops !

Panorama -> just place the panorama mode and move your camera left to right, result is very good and you are not obliged to take a tripod or work on LR or PS

I find new options, I know more optons exists but I didn't use it now ^^

I like 120fps on z6, can get nice slow motion video. Bluetooth/wifi helps a lot when I need my phone as remote. Auto eye/face detection help with crisp portraits. No crop 4k. And I love touch screenšŸ˜„

I forgot to mention about WiFi and Bluetooth function which Iā€™m using in my m50. Itā€™s really nice, unfortunately there is cropped 4K , but I donā€™t use it a lot.

what I like on 7d m2 that has built in transmission, so you can trigger your flash from distance . Really love that.

I mostly shoot my pictures in manual or aperture mode. Sometimes with focus bracketing function enabled. For normal shots I use mostly tone priority mode to avoid toning failures.
