Throw away the instruction manual Micro single operation introductory teaching Nikon Z 5 hands-on
Everyone said: “The camera manual is a good photography book. You need to bring it with you and read it at any time.” Then why can’t I read it? I believe that most of the friends who like to explore new things will put the manual aside and just pick up the camera for practical research. The camera manual may be a relatively difficult manual in the world, unlike the manuals of some simple household products, such as TVs, air conditioners, etc., which can be operated after reading them. The camera is not difficult to use. Press the shutter and you can take a picture with a click, but there is too much knowledge in photography, not just pressing the shutter, but also combining various parameter settings.
If you are a novice who is just starting to learn photography, the camera manual may be difficult to understand, the content is rather boring, and there are a lot of unintelligible photography terms. For novices, these terms are a bible book. In the manual, I won’t tell you the combination relationship between ISO and aperture shutter, but only tell you: how to adjust aperture size, shutter, how to use ISO, how to focus……
Therefore, we Put the manual aside today, and get started directly with the Nikon Z5 mirrorless digital camera. It is very suitable for novice photographers. It is easy to operate. It is equipped with a full-frame CMOS with approximately 24.32 million effective pixels. It makes full use of the good quality provided by the Nikon Z lens. The optical performance provides exquisite center-to-edge details for still images and videos. In addition, the 273-point compound autofocus system has good focusing accuracy, and the built-in powerful EXPEED6 image processor helps to achieve clearer images.
Many friends around me have bought professional cameras, but they only use automatic transmission. More than 90% of the functions of the camera are idle, which is a huge waste. For novices, how to start learning to be effective? Here to talk about my own experience. When you first buy a camera, you must first find out the more important buttons on the camera. The top of the Nikon Z5 camera is a collection of power switch, shutter, ISO setting shortcut keys, two function dials, a shooting mode switch dial and so on. It seems complicated, but as long as you understand these, you can basically control your camera.
Power switch and shutter are naturally understood by everyone. So what does this mode switch dial do? As we all know, digital cameras come with automatic mode, manual mode, and some “semi-automatic modes”. When the white horizontal line of the dial points to one of the letters, the corresponding shooting mode will be activated. Even if the AUTO file is fully automatic, it is commonly known as the “dumb mode”. Thanks to the excellent algorithm of the Nikon Z5, you can also take good photos using the AUTO mode. You only need to focus on the composition and press the shutter, and the Nikon Z5 can take the shot A clear picture.
Nikon Z5 is an entry-level full-frame mirrorless single. What you really need to know is its S, A and M files. Before you start learning how to use these three modes, you need to understand the relationship between aperture, shutter, and ISO. Simply put, these three parameters directly affect the sharpness, brightness, background blur and cleanliness of the photo. In most cases, the main premise of taking a picture is clear. The blurring of the subject of the photo is usually caused by insufficient shutter speed and hand shake. You can adjust the shutter speed as you like using the camera’s thumb dial. The faster the shutter speed, the probability of successfully taking a clear picture. The higher the value, the average person setting the shutter at 1/125 second will not take blurry photos due to hand shaking.
aperture is a fascinating parameter, it can control the background or foreground blur of the photo. In fact, the size of the aperture is reversed, for example, the large aperture is F2, and the small aperture is F16. In general, the larger the aperture, the more obvious the blur. ISO can be understood as adjusting the light and shade of the photo, but increasing the ISO will make the photo appear more noise, the picture becomes less pure, the Nikon Z5 is also excellent in noise control, ISO6400 can also take very clean photos.
Then go back to the three modes of S, A and M. The S file is the shutter priority, which means that the shutter value is fixed, and the camera automatically calculates the aperture and shoots Take a picture with the correct exposure. A file is the aperture priority, and the fixed value is the aperture value. The A file can be used to pursue the blur effect of the photo and let the camera automatically calculate the shutter speed. The M gear is fully manual. When you fully understand the relationship between aperture, shutter, and ISO, you can set various parameters proficiently, and then use the M gear.
Nikon Z5 is also equipped with a touch-operated flip screen, most of the parameters can be set by touching the screen. Here is a little trick to share. Enter the camera’s custom settings menu and turn on “Apply settings to live view”. As long as you make any parameter adjustments, the screen will show the shooting effect in real time. This “what you see is what you get” The mode is particularly friendly to novices.
After understanding the basic operation of the camera, it is important to take multiple shots and sum up the shooting experience in actual combat. The combination of aperture, shutter, and ISO can be varied according to different scenes and different needs. Nikon Z5 also has many excellent features. In addition to the regular settings, many features require a long time to study and explore. It is easy to buy a camera, but to use the camera well, it is not easy to understand it. To achieve the integration of man and machine, this is a very long process.
