Camera Menu: 3
All right, so we're under the third page in the camera settings we have are flash modes, the's are the same ones that we saw in the function menu, and so if you know you're not using flash very much, you can take that feature out of the function menu program, something else in that spot and win, and if you need that, you can dive into the menu to make these settings, but we've we've already talked about these, so we'll move on flash compensation, same thing we saw it in the function menu. I think minus one setting is really good if you're using tl flash, if you don't have a flash on there, it's not going to do anything, so you don't need to worry about it for right now. All right, I dislike redeye in photos a lot. I think it looks horrible when people have red eyes, but I really hate red eye reduction in how it's implemented on the cameras. What this camera does is, if you remember there's a bright light in the front of the camera, it turns on, and it tries to get your pupil of the sub...
ject, the subject you're shooting to construct so that it gets less red eye, it ends up just being annoying because you're shining a bright light in your subjects, eyes and I don't like to annoy people when I'm shooting their photographs they let me shoot less photographs that and so I tend to want to turn this off even though I don't like red eye I'm willing to get it because nowadays in digital it's so easy to fix there's so many programs that have an auto fix on the red eye I'm willing to get red eye in the field I'll fix that one later that's weird getting the shot I think is more important than trying to futz with the camera and have it do something and so I recommend turning that off focussing mode on this camera so this is what we talked about earlier it's the custom to button it's also in the function menu I think for most photography single shot a f is going to work for those of you who like to be able to manually focus your lenses from time to time I think d m f is a nice way of doing that thea other option is back button focusing which is kind of in a completely different area and we will talk about that in a little bit focusing area this would be a really awkward place to come here this is where choosing the focusing point I think you should have a much more direct focusing point on the camera one of the custom buttons that allows you to do this right now the what we have, I think we have the sea to button that does this. The focusing mode was the c three button on the back of the camera. And so this is choosing the different areas that you can focus. And so I would definitely keep on active point, focusing, unless you're satisfied with one point pretty much all the time in your photography.
