So, you have a nice new shiny camera but you don’t really know how to make the most of it, you have come to the right place, as I will do my best to help you understand the different options, dials, lenses and other accessories.
While the battery is charging up on your new camera, read the manual and keep a little space for it in your camera bag. This little book, well, sometimes they can be huge, is a great resource. If you manual is only small, take a look around on the Internet, specifically the website of your camera make and you might be able to find a better manual in pdf format which can be downloaded on to your phone for easy access.
Another thing to do while charging up your battery is to go on-line, there are hundreds or even thousands of websites and video tutorials for your specific camera.
