Starting Bird Photography: Camera Settings

One of the most difficult aspects of bird photography is that they don’t sit still. They also don’t wait, visit in perfect lighting conditions, and they most certainly don’t pose for you.

In a situation like this, your best friend is your camera.

Today, Photzy is presenting you with the 2nd installment in our bird photography series.

It’s titled: “Starting Bird Photography: Camera Settings”

Now… What you will find very interesting about this free eBook is that it delves into some of the camera settings that are rarely talked about!

So, even if you’re not into bird photography, it’s worth the read, so that you can learn about things such as active d-lighting, focus tracking with lock-on, and other similar more obscure camera functions that can be super helpful.

We’ll be looking at:

  • Diopter adjustment
  • Image recording format
  • Metering mode
  • White Balance (WB)
  • Highlight indicator
  • Color space
  • Active D-Lighting
  • Auto ISO sensitivity control
  • Focus tracking with lock-on
  • AF point illumination
  • Number of focus points
  • ISO sensitivity step value
  • Setting back button focus

Lots of great tech advice! Don’t miss out!
