The answer to last weeks question
Which TWO of the following should be the first things you do when you get a new camera, before you start taking pictures?
This was a question to stir the grey cells. When taking a picture one of the most important things is being able to see the image, to do this the viewfinder is the most commonly used option and whilst it’s possible to rely on the AF of the cameras, it’s quite disconcerting to have no idea if the subject is in focus or not when you press the shutter, so first thing to do is set the viewfinder dioptre correction. If you don’t understand the importance of this then you should move the dioptre correction on your camera until the viewfinder is very blurred and then try taking pictures.
Secondly the other setting you should make is to take the camera out of shoot without card, or in-store demo mode. Now you can’t take pictures at all unless a card is in the camera so it neatly ensures that ‘Put a memory card in the camera’ is also forced to be done.
You might not think these are important, but these two items alone will ensure you can see what is focussed in the picture and which AF point is being used, plus you won’t have that sinking moment as the LCD flashes off and your best image ever is gone for good as you shot with no card in the camera.
