#Auto Exposure (AE)

ˈɔtoʊ ɪkˈspoʊʒɚ e i

Auto exposure is a shooting mode on a camera where the camera selects all aspects of an exposure. The photographer can effectively "point and shoot" with a camera in auto exposure mode. The photographer frames the subject or scene and the camera chooses an aperture, shutter speed, and ISO without the photographer's input.
