A NEW VIDEO: The best default settings for your Canon DSLR!

For many years now, whenever someone has asked me to help them with their Canon DSLR camera, there are some changes I make immediately, before even giving instruction. Now, finally, I have made a video to help everyone make these changes to your cameras to help you get better photos. Regardless of whether you just got a brand new Canon DSLR or have had it for many years and never bothered to change these settings, this video will help.

You can click on this image to see the video

Here are the key tips:

* Turn off the "Release shutter without card" feature
* Change focus points to one center focus point
* Turn on Highlight Alerts
* Turn off Auto rotate on the camera (but leave it on for the computer)
* Set your time and date correctly
* Learn to customize the "My Menu" section of the camera

I hope that these tips help you take better control of your camera.



If you are interested in purchasing any camera equipment, please click here to go to B&H Photo, as I get a referral from them if you enter this way. It does not change the cost to you in any way, but it helps me keep this blog up and running.

And also, remember that you and your friends can enter your email address at the top right of this blog to get an email any time I write a new blog post or send my monthly newsletter.
