Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Exposure and focus lock, part of Learning the Nikon D5200 and D5300.
- If you're shooting a subject…and you want to recompose the frame,…you could take advantage of the auto exposure lock…and auto focus lock button.…This is useful when shooting things like portraits,…or panorama photos because you can lock the exposure…and the focus.…This means that you can get it set for the first shot…and then move the camera without changing…focus or exposure settings.…The lock button lets you meter and auto focus…then lock those values in place.…To engage the lock, just press and hold this button…while shooting.…
Normally, holding down the button…will lock both the exposure and focus.…But these are options that you can actually change…inside the menu.…Press the menu button and choose the custom setting menu.…Select category F controls and press to the right.…You'll see the ability to assign the auto exposure lock…and auto focus lock button,…press to the right again.…The default choice is the auto exposure, auto focus lock.…Focus and exposure area are both locked…while the button is held down…
