Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Powering up, part of Learning the Nikon D5200 and D5300.
- Not to overstate the obvious,…but your camera needs power in order to run.…And most of the time, you're going to be running the camera…off of a rechargeable battery.…Now, it's a good idea to make sure that that battery…is fully charged the first time you use it.…And this can be done by using the battery charger…that comes with your camera.…It's pretty simple.…Just take the battery and slip that in.…Make sure that it lines up with the contacts…and gently press down.…Then, on the back side, you can flip that out,…and simply plug it into the wall.…
Now while this is charging, you'll see on the front…there's a couple of lights.…This will pulse slowly while it's charging…and once it's completely charged,…it will go to a solid color.…Unlike older rechargeable batteries,…you don't have to drain these completely…before you recharge them.…This means if you're going to be going out on a shoot,…you can simply top them off before you leave for the day.…It's also a good idea to pick up a spare battery or two…if you plan on doing video shooting…
