Custom Set-Up: 6
Page six customs setup menu exposure compensation setting so when you set the exposure compensation normally it's going to be set for just the exposure of the camera but if you have a flash added on to it you can do it with the flash as well to make everything lighter or darker if you're newer to photography, it might be convenient to combine these two just because it makes the whole picture lighter or darker for the more advanced photographers you're probably gonna want to separate this and have it on ambient on lee so that when you are changing this exposure compensation it's not changing anything on the flash if you want to change something on the flash you can and you will do it on the flash and you could do him separately at different levels and so it kind of depends on how much into flash photography you are doing reset evey compensation and so this once again depends a little bit on your experience level for a basic photographer it's kind of nice when you set exposure compensati...
on and then you turn the camera off and you come back to it it's reset back to zero because you're probably not doing that same exposure compensation but for the more serious photographer who's more comfortable with their operation of the camera and they don't want it to change on them they would put this on maintains so if you set a plus to exposure compensation it's going to be on plus two the next time you turn that camera and so do you want your camera toe automatically reset that and so if you're a little unsure I would probably put it on the reset its the safe for of the two options face registration this is something that we saw in the video where you can go in and you can register faces and you can order exchange depending on the importance level of that person one over the other and then you can delete or you could delete all of them in there so we can kind of skipped past that so a psc allows us to work with the smaller frame lenses from sony designed for their crop frame sensor light a six thousand the whole in the x series of cameras and we can shoot we can force our camera to shoot in this mode now we're not going to be able to get as many mega pixels as our camera can inherently shoot with the full frame but we could shoot with those different lenses we can shoot with a cropped area if we want to my guess is that you spent a lot of money on a full frame camera to shoot it in full frame so this is not going to be the standard on it I will would leave this in auto because what happens at when you have it in auto is that you can stick on the lens from the smaller frame sensors and the camera will sense that that lands is designed for the smaller area and will automatically go in and crop that area. And so I think that's gonna be the best option there a f micro adjustment is something that you're not going to I need to worry about unless you own the l a e two or four, and these are the face detection adapters, which allowed you to use other sony lenses from there a series of cameras with their aim out on this with a face detection system it's not nearly as necessary, especially with the our model because it has so many phase detection points that you probably don't need to need this. This was more or less designed for previous versions of the camera that did not have as good a focusing system on it, and you can go in and you can adjust how the camera and lens are calibrated because with face detection systems, uh, this style and of other sl ours, they sometimes are misaligned and their front focusing or back focusing on a regular basis. And if you had a lands that was front focusing by a little bit, you could go into the micro adjust and you could adjust it, but if you don't have this adapter, you're not going to need this feature
