>> If you have a D80 or similar digital SLR from Nikon you've got a great camera but you need to know about shooting modes which it excels at. I'm Brian Cooley with a quick tip on how to select the right one. First of all turn the camera on and then look at this little button here to the right of the LCD info panel, it looks like a bunch of photos stacked up. Press that one in series, and you'll see that four icons will change right there on the display. The first one is single shot. That's obvious. Press it again and you get a stack of photos as the icon, just like on the button. That's continuous. You can now take three photos per second and you can keep going in many cases up to a hundred photos in a row at that rate depending on how fast your memory card is. If you keep pressing it, you'll also find settings for self timer. That's great to get yourself in the picture or if you're taking a very long exposure to hold the camera still, let it take it's own shot while you're hands off. You'll also find settings in there for use with remote controls. But get familiar with these different shooting modes. They allow you to do some very interesting things and capture things you might otherwise miss with your D80 or similar Nikon DSLR. I'm Brian Cooley, thanks for joining us for this quick tip. ^M00:01:17 [ Music ]
Ever want to freeze the action when photographing sports, races, or other subjects that move? Your Nikon digital SLR can do it using 'Shutter Priority Mode.'
Here's a creative control that let's you decide what will be in focus when shooting with your Nikon digital SLR.
Press the shutter button halfway and good things happen.
Sometimes you just have too many megapixels. Shooting with lower resolution can be a good thing on your Nikon digital SLR.
Fun features and chic styling make the Nikon Coolpix S60 a tasty choice for casual point-and-shoot use. However, if you need speed or snapshot perfection, this isn't your camera.
The Nikon Coolpix S630 puts a little extra zoom in your pocket, but you might not find the high-resolution photos it shoots out pleasurable.
Your Nikon digital SLR has several ways to get the right exposure. Here's a quick tip on selecting the right metering method.
The Nikon Coolpix L110 definitely offers a lot for the money, but it still has the photos and shooting performance of an entry-level point-and-shoot.
It shoots good photos, but mediocre performance and a serious design flaw may keep this 8-megapixel camera out of the hands of enthusiasts.
The Nikon Coolpix S640 is a respectable midrange ultracompact with some improved shooting performance over other Coolpix models.
