Quick and easy ways to get more from your Nikon, what­ever your level of ex­per­tise or favourite sub­ject!

Per­haps you think you know your Nikon inside out? Or, more likely, you know the fea­tures you use reg­u­larly pretty well, but you tend not to delve deeper into the menus and cus­tom func­tions? What­ever your level of Nikon know-how, we hope – no, we guar­an­tee – that there’ll be some­thing here you didn’t know al­ready. In fact, take it as a chal­lenge: if you can’t find any­thing in here that you didn’t know be­fore, let us know and we’ll publish it on our let­ters page.

Our top 101 in­cludes tips for smarter every­day shoot­ing, get­ting the ex­po­sure right, mas­ter­ing your Nikon’s aut­o­fo­cus sys­tem, cus­tomis­ing your cam­era, and fig­ur­ing out what’s gone wrong (it hap­pens to us too!).

Not all of th­ese tips will work with ev­ery Nikon. Older or ba­sic mod­els will lack some of the cus­tomi­sa­tion op­tions, for ex­am­ple, but where rel­e­vant we’ve tried to make this clear. If in doubt, look at your Nikon’s man­ual – you may no longer have a full-size printed ver­sion, but you can get th­ese on­line very eas­ily on Nikon’s web­site, or by Googling ‘Nikon DXXXX Man­ual’, sub­sti­tut­ing the num­ber of your own model. Once you’ve got your PDF man­ual, you can type di­rectly into the search box to find spe­cific fea­tures. You’ll be amazed at what it can do...
