ready! set! go!
Ever picked up your camera, taking a photo and realised it was set wrong and you got a dark blank image or a very over exposed image?
Tip number 9 is... remember to reset your camera each time you finish using it so that the next time you pick it up it's ready to go.
If you shoot in Auto or have started using the Av/Tv modes, remember to reset back to auto after you have finished, so when you pick the camera up the next time you can pretty much point and shoot.
If you are a manual user reset your settings to the following as these are pretty good baseline settings that will allow you to point and shoot in reasonable conditions every time.
