D750_1

I have been using the D750 for a couple of weeks now and have set the camera up just the way I like it. Now the way that I set up the camera might be different to the way you set up the camera. It all depends on what you shoot.

So there are my settings. A pretty standard set with probably one exception. I have the Fn button assigned to open the first item in the MY MENU and then I have the first item set as WiFi. This allows me a one button press to get to the WiFi menu. Because the workflow at the Valley View Casino Center is to get a shot or two to the marketing people as soon as possible I have sett his up to start the connection between the camera and my iPhone as quickly as possible.
