Record & Erase Menu
moving on to record any race. All right, so there's a couple of items in here that fall under the general question of when you delete a photo. How many button presses do you want it to take? And on one hand, I don't want it to take too long. I don't want a press 15 buttons to be racing image. And on the other hand, if I just press one button, that might happen accidentally. And so there's this happy medium that we're all gonna have. And so what quicker race allows us to dio is we changed the normal system? The normal system is you hit garbage. You go down to select that you actually want to have it erased, and then you hit OK, which means you got to hit the button three times. If you turn quick, erase on. You hit the garbage can button when you see a photo and it is gone right away. And so that's a little too quick for a lot of people. And so I would hesitate and say, You probably don't want to have this turned on unless you're really, really sure about your finger movements on the cam...
era and for some reason, the other option is gonna be here in a moment. So just hold on for a second in the rest of that. All right, if you shoot raw Plus J peg, when you press delete, you want to get rid of both images at the same time. I'm thinking, yes, in most cases you would. But if you wanted to Onley delete the J peg or the raw, you could set it up. To do that. The file name is automatically given to each of the photos that you are taken in there. If you want to reset the file number back to 0001 you can do so Normally it just counts up to 10,000 and resets itself, which is usually fine for most people. File name is preceded with a three or four letter code, depending on whether you're shooting in S RGB or adobe RGB. And if you want to go in and say, put your initials in rather than this other letter code, you could go in and have that as part of the final naming of your photos. And so it can just kind of customize your file names. And so if you find this helps in the workflow, then go in there and you can adjust those three or four letter codes. All right, so we were talking about that quicker race option. Well, here's kind of the second option on it. Under quicker race, we either have the option of pressing the button three times or one time with priority set. When you press delete, what's the priority that it says yes or say no? And currently it's no. And if you change it to yes, it says, you hit the garbage can. Oh, you want to delete a photo? You're really sure, And all you have to do is hit the okay button. And so, in my mind, to button press for deleting images is the perfect medium of not being too quick to delete them but not taking too many button presses to delete every single photograph. And so I think the priority set on yes is just the right amount of button pressing to delete a photo if you want to change the DP I settings, and this is mainly if you are going to be hooking your camera upto a printer that you can do so when adjusted. The printing settings here Generally 300 dp eyes kind of long been the standard of what normal prints are printed at you. Go a little up from that. You can go a little down from that. The copyright settings. The camera records metadata about how how you shot your photograph, and one of the things that you can add in is your artist's name. General. Information your name into the camera so you can use this. It's a little time consuming because you got to use the controls toe. Go through the alphabet and put your name in. But I highly recommend doing this because it adds your name to the copyright of the photographs that you shoot with your photograph. And even if you don't plan on publishing photos with your camera, it puts your name in the camera. If it was law, if you lost your camera or it got stolen and somebody was trying to prove that, does this camera really belong to you? You could simply say, Go into the menu setting, Look under the copyright That's my name, and it probably be help in recovering your camera to prove that it's your own. And so you could also put in your website information so somebody could contact you if they found it s so great to go ahead and add that information into the camera. Chances are, a thug who steals your camera probably isn't going to know about that in there.
