Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Assign Fn button, part of Nikon D5100 Essential Training.
We've explored how the Function button over here on the side of the camera lets…you toggle Self-Timer mode on and off,…but you can program it to do other things.…If you find you don't really need that functionality or if you are really…looking for quick access to a different function, you can go here into…the Controls section of the Custom Setting menu, to Assign…Self-Timer/Function button.…When I open this up, look at this,…I get this huge list of features. It scrolls on, and I can assign any of these to…that button, so I could change it to being control over Release mode or Image…quality or ISO or White balance.…
So look through this list and see if there is something that maybe you use…more than the Self-Timer, go ahead and assign it to the Function button, and…see how you like it.…If you find you are not using it, you can go ahead and set this back to…Self-Timer, which you may already be used to.…
