Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Getting ready to shoot, part of Learning the Nikon D5200 and D5300.
- Let's get ready to shoot.…To do this, we'll need to attach a few things to the camera.…One of the greatest advantages…of shooting with an SLR camera…is the ability to switch lenses.…This gives you a lot of flexibility when you're out shooting…under different lighting conditions or scenarios.…For example, you could easily attach specialty lenses…like wide-angle or macro lenses,…or go with a good prime lens…if shooting in low-light conditions.…First, make sure the camera is powered down.…Check the on/off switch.…Then, carefully remove the body cap here.…
This cap should be used…whenever there is not a lens attached to the camera.…Otherwise, dust can get in there on the sensor.…Set the cap to the side and we'll use it later.…Now, on the back of the lens, remove the lens cap.…A gentle twist, and take it off.…You'll notice there's a dot both here…and on the camera body.…Line those two up carefully.…Once they're lined up, the lens will go flush…and you can gently turn.…
Rotate it until you hear a click.…(click)…- Now, this should be a really solid connection.…
