"Snow Scene Mode ?"


Washington Township, US
          

Awaiting the Blizzard coming into Michigan tonight and looking forward to some great snow pics after it blows through tomorrow.
What is the primary difference between using the Snow Scene mode vs. manually stepping up the exposure for snow ?

According to the manual (Page 43), the built-in flash and auto-assist illuminator are turned off. There is no mention of exposure change.

The D7000 Digital Field Guide by Thomas (page 33) says that the camera many underexpose sand and snow, and the the beach/snow scene mode adds some exposure compensation to ensure that the sand/snow appears to be gleaming white.

Couldn't this also be done in post processing?

Just for fun, I tried the beach/snow scene mode and the P mode on the same subject - trees and blowing snow in my back yard.

This was using my 50mm lens - the one that stays on the camera most of the time.

P mode - 1/200 f7.1 ISO 100
beach/snow mode - 1/250 f10 ISO 320

Well the snow came and left. The pic in my gallery titled For the Love of Hockey, was shot with my 80-400 vr lens at 390, handheld in Snow/Beach Mode. Son of gun...........it worked.
