BUT­TONS AND DI­ALS

There’s not a huge num­ber of but­tons on the D3300, which is to be ex­pected of an en­try-level cam­era.

On the top plate you’ll find a mode dial for switch­ing be­tween ex­po­sure modes. These in­clude fully au­to­matic, aper­ture pri­or­ity and the newly in­cor­po­rated Ef­fects mode. This is the first time Ef­fects have ap­peared on a Nikon D3000-se­ries cam­era body.

ex­po­sure com­pen­sa­tion and info butt on

Also on the top plate you’ll find the ex­po­sure com­pen­sa­tion but­ton (for use in au­to­matic and semi-au­to­matic modes) and info but­ton, which turns off the rear dis­play, so it won’t be a dis­trac­tion while us­ing the viewfinder.

back dial

This dial al­ters the aper­ture or shut­ter speed, depend­ing on which mode you’re in. In fully man­ual mode, hold the ex­po­sure com­pen­sa­tion but­ton while scrolling the dial to switch be­tween the two pa­ram­e­ters.

i butt on

Press the ‘i’ but­ton on the back of the D3300 to ac­cess a quick menu, then use the direc­tional keys to travel to a set­ting you want to change, and press OK to bring up the dif­fer­ent op­tions avail­able.

func­tion butt on

There is a func­tion but­ton near the lens mount. By de­fault, hold­ing this down will al­low you to quickly change the ISO, but you can change this to con­trol JPEG qual­ity, White Bal­ance or ac­tive D-Light­ing.
