Photography podcast #79 talks about how to customize your camera using the custom settings functions in your camera’s menu. There are many, many, many useful ways to customize these settings for the way YOU personally shoot, but many photographers don’t use these settings or are afraid to touch these settings. Many features that your camera offers are set to OFF by default, and the only way to access them is by turning their custom function on in the custom menu of your camera. A quick and easy example is high ISO. On my former 30D from Canon, this setting was set to off so my highest normally available ISO was 1600. With one setting change in the custom function menu the highest available ISO becomes 3200.‚ This podcast encourages you to play with similar (and even better) settings in your camera.
