Having watched T&C's video on setting up the D5300 and following suggestions for using actual shots for metering, I find myself getting put off by the camera changing the manual settings i've pre-selected after a shot has been taken.
For instance, this morning I was walking on the beach and this helicopter comes in extremely low. I pull up my camera to shoot. My light meter was pretty much 2/3 of a stop over, so i adjusted as quickly by speeding up the shutter. Satisfied with the metering, I began taking a series of shots on continuous. The result was one reasonably exposed shot followed by one that was completely blown out because after the initial shot, the shutter automatically sped up.
So, if possible how do I prevent it from 'interfering'?
Thanks for any input!
