We are going to play with two of these and I'm going to show you some techniques…to get the most out of your cameras.…Now, we're going to be playing with some buttons and menus here and what you see…on these cameras might be a little bit different than how your camera looks. That's okay.…What I want to do is learn the concepts and then refer to your owner's manual…and learn where those controls are on your camera and then apply these…
