Join Joseph "PhotoJoseph" Linaschke for an in-depth discussion in this video Introduction to pushing camera buttons, part of Photography 101.
- Today's cameras have a plethora of buttons on them,…and some of the newer cameras have a lot of programmable…buttons making the camera more convenient to use,…but also possibly a little bit more challenging to learn.…Let's go back a few years to this older Canon model.…You'll see it has a row of buttons across the top,…and some on the back here,…and they're all pretty clearly labeled.…What they do is pretty well set in stone.…This Sony on the other hand has a button called Fn on it.…What is Fn?…Well it's a function button,…and you can make it do any number of things.…The Lumix that I'll be working with throughout this chapter…actually has a whole bunch of buttons on it…that you can reprogram, this is fantastic,…it really allows you to totally customize your camera,…but again, it can make it just a little bit harder…to get used to and to understand…exactly what your camera can do.…
Not only are there buttons all over…the surface of the camera,…but there are a ton of functions deep inside of it,…digging into the menus on any modern DSLR…
