My Menu & Play Back Menu

Okay, My Menu. If you want to create this menu, you actually do it in the set-up menu under "User Setting," "My Menu Setting." And this is where you would populate the area, the settings with the features that you think are most important. So there's a lot of different shortcuts and this is just one of the ways to collect up some of those features that are most important to you and have them easily accessible, because once you have this populated with some options, when you press the Menu button, rather than going someplace else in your Menu, it starts with My Menu where all your favorites are. And if you want to go to the rest of the Menu, you can, but it starts where your favorites are. The Playback Menu can be accessed by pressing the Playback button, and then the Menu button. And so there's a lot of things in here we're not going to spend too much time on, because it's not really important for image quality. Kind of nice, you can take a raw image and you can turn it into a JPEG and...

you can adjust it as necessary. You can erase images, and this is the best way if you have lots of images to erase. There's less button pressing than just using the garbage can on the back of the camera. You can crop images and it will save a copy of your original image. It doesn't actually crop and destroy the original image in any way. You can re-size. Once again, in this case, you will make a copy version of a smaller size that might be easier to email. You could protect images, which prevents them from being deleted on the camera. Warning, the memory card can still be formatted. If you want to rotate images, because you're going to be doing a slideshow, you can change that here. You can go in and manually do a red-eye removal from particular images that already have red-eye. We have deja-vu, we already saw our wireless communication. We saw this back in the Camera Settings. It's here, so that you have easy access to it, depending on what mode you're in. You can put the camera into a slideshow mode where it automatically goes into a slideshow of all the images on the card. Not a lot of control, so little limited in its use in my mind. Photobook is a collection of images, and so, if you want to create a collection of images, you can do so in here. You can hook your camera up to a computer, so that it saves the images through an auto-save program. Most people just use the memory card system, but it is possible here. If you want to hook it up to a printer, you can do so directly and get prints directly from the camera. It's a little better to go through the computer where you have better color control and management of the image. You can hook up with a wireless Fuji printer, which is pretty cool to print instant photos and shoot with a good quality camera, but still get instant photos. And so this is a very good way to do that. You can look up the Fuji Instax printer, very interesting device. If you're going to be displaying on a TV screen, do you want it to be a 16x9 or 3x2? I like using all the screen, but I like to see all the image, so I usually choose 3x2.

I use my X-t20 in full automatic mode since last February. I am really beginner in photo and the instructions booklet delivered with the camera is really boring. I am French and despite my bad English. I understand all these lessons. Today I use my X-T20 at 60% of these capacities and soon more... thanks to you, John Greengo to be that clear ;-) Just because of those lessons I don't regret y choice to had buy that Fuji X-T20
