Camera Settings 101

Raise your hand if you own a Nikon or a Canon DSLR* (Digital Single Lens Reflex, a camera with a removable lens and a reflex mirror)! Now raise your hand if you didn't take the time to read the entire instruction manual. Where's the fun in that? As an introduction to this blog, I put together a simple settings walk-through video for an entry-level Nikon and Canon DSLR. So sit back and enjoy learning the basic settings of your camera. I also include a short description of how some of these settings change the look of your images. 

Unfortunately, all cameras are not created equal, but these videos will help you better understand the settings on your DSLR camera.
