Set-Up Menu: Basics

It's time to get into the set up menu which is where you really get to customize and personalize your camera. All right, so, let's dive into the menu settings. And we're going to be going into the custom functions where you really get to personalize your camera. We're going to start with User Settings and so these are just a lot of general settings that you're going to have that adjust things the way you want them to do. So, we have our sub-menu in here. First up, I've got to be honest with you it is a little bit of a strange place to put formatting, but hey, this is where it's at. And so you can format slot one or slot two you do need to do that on a regular basis to keep your cards the best light, get the most light out of them. And so I recommend doing that whenever you go out on a new shoot. The date and time is something that you would obviously you would put in it gets added to the metadata of each of your photographs. It does not know about it when the Daylight Savings Time goes...

on and off. And it doesn't know about when you travel to a new time zone. So if you do, you can go in here and you can make an adjustment if necessary. And here is actually the better way to do it when you do go to a new time zone, is you can have your home setting. Leave that set as the normal clock. And then when you go to a local setting, which would be a different location where you were locally out at that time, you can choose a different time for that travel destination that you're at. Language, well that's pretty obvious. Choose whichever language you feel most comfortable with.

I highly recommend this class! Been shooting Nikon for 40+ years and decided to give my Nikon gear to my daughter and go the smaller and lighter Fuji X-T2 for travel. Excellent camera and this course was outstanding in helping me learn how to use the camera. I have watched a number of Nikon oriented instructional videos. This video by John Greengo is the best organized and informative presentation I have ever watched.

We all learn from different methods. I, for one, learn best by watching you while teaching, and being able to work along side you, with my camera in hand, and then follow you. I highly recommend this class if you really want to know how to use your camera. Thank you John for helping me to relive my film days, and integrating into Digital. I now have my Fujo X-T2 programmed and I LOVE IT!

Really appreciate John putting these Fast Start Series together. Went through part of the training waiting on my Fujifilm X-T20 to arrive, which did today. That allowed me to dive into the menu settings and get the camera ready to use. I found that we are on Firmware 3.0, so, I have some updates to get installed. The training was great and informative as always. Don't hesitate to look for his Fast Start for your particular camera, and the in-depth training on Photography Fundamentals. It is well worth your time and money to get this training, especially if you are an amateur like myself, but, thanks to John Greengo I am quickly learning to use my camera in Manual Mode, most of the time.
