Welcome to the world of photography, and congratulations on your first camera! Here are a few tips to help you get started.
I know the first thing many will tell you to do is to read the manual. Well, I’m not going to do that because I have to admit, I’ve never read mine.
Keep it around, use it as a reference to familiarize yourself with what all the buttons and screens are and to look up specific items when you have a question. There are sooooo many functions on cameras that you’ll likely not use them all. So I say, learn what you need to or want to, and look up the rest when it comes up.
