Not mak­ing the most of U1 and U2

NPhoto - - Special Feature -

Some Nikon SLRs en­able you to cre­ate your own user-set­tings modes, which al­low you to bring up a spe­cific cam­era con­fig­u­ra­tion at the touch of a but­ton (or turn of a dial). If you’re the kind of pho­tog­ra­pher who sticks to aper­ture-pri­or­ity mode for 99 per cent of their photography, then you may not have ex­plored this op­tion, but you’re miss­ing out on one of the cam­era’s more con­ve­nient as­pects. One par­tic­u­larly handy way it can make a dif­fer­ence is in en­abling you to set up a ded­i­cated ‘movie’ mode, which al­lows you to op­ti­mise the aut­o­fo­cus and other key set­tings with­out hav­ing to delve into the menu and make ad­just­ments each time you want to shoot a video clip.
