If you are the proud owner of a Canon Rebel or Canon PowerShot camera, you might not remember the details of your instruction manual and need a refresher on what all those little symbols on the mode dial stand for. We'll run through the quick basics, so whether you are taking pictures of food, scenery, or your friends at a party, you'll have flawless shots.
