Join Joseph "PhotoJoseph" Linaschke for an in-depth discussion in this video Introduction, part of Photography 101 (2012).
Any modern DSLR has a bewildering array of buttons on it. …We'll take a look at a camera like this Nikon here, there's buttons all across …the top, all across the back, some on the side and the front. …And frankly, if you don't know what they all do, then you're not getting the most …out of your DSLR. So throughout this chapter, what we're …going to do is go through all the common buttons that you'll find on pretty much …any DSLR you might pick up.
