Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Getting ready to shoot, part of Up and Running with the Nikon D600 and D610.
- Let's get ready to shoot.…To do this, we need to attach a few things to the camera.…One of the great advantages of shooting…with an SLR camera is the ability to switch lenses.…This gives you a lot of flexibility and potential power…as you can adjust for the performance of the situtation.…For example, I could shoot with this 85mm lens here…for street photography, giving me a nice closer view,…as well as great low-light performance.…Or I could switch to a macro, or a tilt-shift lens,…when shooting in specific scenarios.…Attaching a lens is easy.…
First, make sure the camera is in…the off position here, and powered down.…Carefully remove the body cap.…The body cap should be used whenever a lens is…not attached, as it will protect the sensor…and keep dust from entering.…Now, take the lens cap off off the back of the lens.…You'll see on the lens that there's a dot.…Here's a little mark here,…as well as on the outside of the lens.…What you'll want to do is line those up.…You'll see here on the camera body, a white dot as well.…
