Chapter 3. Setting Up Your Sony Alpha SLT

The Sony Alpha camera has a remarkable number of options and settings you can use to customize the way it operates. Not only can you change shooting settings used at the time the picture is taken, but you can adjust the way your camera behaves. This chapter will help you sort out the settings on the Recording and Playback menus (which determine how the Alpha uses many of its shooting features to take a photo and how it displays images on review) and the Setup and Custom menus (to adjust power-saving timers, specify LCD brightness, and adjust options like Eye-Start autofocus and red-eye reduction).
