Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video The customized command dial, part of Shooting with the Nikon D7000.
By now you should be well-accustomed to using the two different command dials…that you have on your D7000.…However, you can't change their behavior, you can configure them in some…different ways, and there's one configuration in particular that maybe critical…to set depending on how you've set up your camera.…Here I am in the Custom Settings menu.…If I go down to the Controls batch and work my way down to Customize command…dials, I get four different options here.…First one is very important if you have used another custom setting that we…looked at in the last movie, and that is Reverse indicators.…
This reversed where positive and negative are in the exposure…compensation control.…If I've swapped those, then I probably want to reverse rotation on my command dial.…That means that if I've swapped it so that positive is to the right, now rolling…the wheel to the right will move in a positive direction.…So those do kind of need to go together to really make sense.…Change main/sub lets me change the behavior of the command dials when I'm in priority modes.…
