- Let's get started by taking a quick look…at some of the most essential buttons…and controls on your camera.…Now, don't worry if you hear me…use a term that you aren't familiar with.…We'll explore most of these as we go into…the controls in greater detail throughout the course.…The power switch is used every time…you want to turn your camera on.…It surrounds the shutter release button…which is what you push to actually take a photo.…Below are three important buttons.…First, the exposure compensation button,…to adjust for different lighting conditions and contrast.…
A dedicated movie record button can trigger your…camera's built-in HD video recording.…This third button serves really two purposes.…First, you can use it to adjust metering,…how your camera measures light.…You can also use it to format a memory card.…The control panel provides feedback…as you adjust controls.…It also shows you useful information,…from the camera, to help you make better images.…To illuminate this panel, just turn the power switch…a bit more until it lights up.…
