Nikon Camera Setting Tips

These settings apply to the pro and pro-consumer models.

Assign the OK Button to Zoom into the Image Being Reviewed

Assign the OK button to zoom into the captured image at 100%.

Choose "Controls" from "Custom" Menu
This may be "OK button" on some models
Choose "Playback mode"
Choose "Zoom on/off"
This may be "Medium Magnification" for some

Now, when pressing OK, the image will zoom into the point of focus so that the photographer can check that the image is sharp and focused on what he wants.

Fast Image Playback with Command Dials

Scroll through your images superfast using the command dials.

Choose "Controls" from "Custom" Menu
Choose "Customize command dials"
Choose "Menus and playback"
Choose "On"

Temporarily Disable Flash

If it is too much of a hassle to turn off the flash, then assign it to a button on the camera.

Choose "Controls" from "Custom" Menu
Choose "Assign the preview button"
Choose "Press"
Choose "Flash off"

Quickly Zoom to 100% in Live View

Live view is great for focusing critically. Assign a button to it.

Choose "Controls" from "Custom" Menu
This may be "OK button" on some models
Choose "Live view"
Choose "Zoom on/off"
This may be "Medium Magnification" for some

Now, turn-on live view and move the focus box anywhere and then press the OK button and the camera will magnify that area so the photographer can check focus.

Use the Movie Record Button to Change ISO or Another Setting

Yes, there is an ISO button on some camera backs, but this allows the photographer to change the ISO using the useless movie button while looking through the viewfinder. (Some Nikon cameras have an ISO button near the shutter anyway.)

Choose "Controls" from "Custom" Menu
This may not be available on some models
Choose "Select + command dials"
Choose ISO or another setting
