Enabling/Disabling AEB (Braketing Exposure)

In general, enabling and disabling exposure bracketing on these cameras is done through the Shooting menu (red camera) or Shooting 2 menu (red camera with 2 dots) when it appeared.

The general procedure for setting up auto exposure bracketing on these cameras is as follows:

Press the MENU button
Navigate to the Shooting or Shooting 2 menu
Selecting the Expo.Comp./AEB menu item and press SET
Rotate the Main Dial changes the AEB amount.
Press SET again to apply the setting.
On cameras that have a Quick Control Button ( [Q] ), such as the 700D, auto exposure bracketing can also be configured as follows:

Pressing the [Q] button.
Navigate to the exposure meter (Exposure comp. / AEB setting) box using the arrow keys.
Rotate the Main Dial to change the bracketing amount.
Press SET or half press the shutter release to accept the setting
To disable Auto Exposure bracketing repeat the above procedures except turn the dial until the bracketing indicators are gone. Alternatively, power cycling the camera will clear the AEB settings.

Create an RSS feed to your Gmail for the Blogs you love to read

IFTTT is a great solution to create a reading list of blogs and news, right in your Gmail. Here is how to set it up.

1) Get the url for the RSS feed that you want to follow. For most WordPress blogs, that is usually the address of the blog plus /feed. So this one would be http://vipstatususa.com/feed
2) Open your IFTTT account and create a new recipe.
For THIS: Use FEED and enter the url that you discovered above.
For THAT: use EMAIL.
Modify the email subject to include (_RSS)
3) Go to your Gmail and create a filter that filters for _RSS
Have that Filter ‘Skip inbox’ and label ‘RSS’

That’s it! Now, when a new article shows up in the feed that you’d like to follow, the link to the article is in your gmail, filed under RSS.
