Nikon D300s: 5 quick tips to get more from your DSLR
Like most of us, when you shoot a particular style of photography you can often get in the habit of overlooking some of your camera’s other features.
To help you get the most from your Nikon DSLR we’ve taken a closer look at the Nikon D300s to see what settings and tweaks you can use to get more from your camera.
Nikon D300s Tip 1: Handle with care
The D300s is super tough and well sealed, but there’s one weak spot: it’s quite easy to open the memory card slot cover accidentally. Take care when stowing or unpacking the camera.
Nikon D300s Tip 2: Slow it down
With a maximum frame rate of 7fps, the D300s is one of Nikon’s fastest D-SLRs, and naturally excels at capturing fast action. But don’t rely on a scattergun approach all the time!
Nikon D300s Tip 3: Task master
The Fn button can be programmed (use Custom Setting f5 to assign its function). If you do give it a job, be careful – its position makes it easy to press the button accidentally.
Nikon D300s Tip 4: Cover your bases
The Nikon D300s has excellent weather sealing, but it’s not perfect. If there’s water around, make sure all the camera’s flaps and covers are secure and the hotshoe protector is in place.
Nikon D300s Tip 5: Marking territory
The D300s allows you to embed copyright details in every shot you take. That won’t deter all photo thieves but it’s certainly worth doing – just access the Setup menu.
