Chapter 2: Camera Setup and Image Playback

Among the first things I do when I get a new camera is go through the menus, and set up the camera for shooting. Setup takes only a few minutes, and it saves a lot of time during shooting to have the settings the way you like them. This chapter explains setup options ranging from setting the image quality and customizing file numbering, to transmitting images wirelessly. In this chapter, I also cover how to add your copyright to image data, register the camera battery, and different ways to play back images.
