ALWAYS change these 10 camera settings

0:11 First tip - disable the beeping. Beeping is annoying, especially at events like weddings.
0:46 #2: Enable back button focus (BBF). When you press AF-On the camera focuses, and when you don’t - it won’t focus, even if you press the shutter. This is helpful for night photography - when you manually focus and then take a picture.
1:29 You can use BBF to “lock” the focal plane, enabling your camera to take a faster burst of pictures for sports photography.
1:47 #3: Set up your camera to take raw photos, instead of just jpgs. Raw files allow you to recover blown-out highlights and dark shadows.
2:10 If your camera has dual SD slots, you can configure it to write raw images to slot 1 (usually the faster slot) and jpg, as a backup, to slot 2.
2:42 Not only does card 2 (with the jpgs) serve as a useful backup, it can quickly be edited on your laptop/iPad due to their smaller file size.
3:02 #4: Max out the ISO/Auto-ISO limit. This enables your camera to try to expose pictures properly (with a higher ISO) than underexposing the image if it’s too dark.
3:36 #5: We also configure how each camera handles AF points, too. Most cameras seem to randomly pick AF points that don’t make sense. As a photographer, this is aggravating.
4:01 First, choose a single AF point. Use your touchscreen/thumbstick to choose the AF point you want to use. EOS R drifts out of focus...consider filming new b-roll of touch-screen focusing/using thumbstick to move AF point around.
4:06 #8: Use AF-C mode. Most cameras default to Single AF mode, where the camera won’t hunt to establish focus. With most modern cameras, it’s probably better to use AF-C nearly all the time.
4:42 #7: Prevent the camera from shooting w/o memory card.
5:11 #8: Enable 4k video. 4k ain’t enabled by default, but it’s great for cropping and it looks so much better when exporting to 1080p.
5:26 #9 Customize My Menu - Nearly all cameras have a “C1, C2” function that allows customization. We switch cameras a lot and remembering the various menu options can be challenging.
6:00 #10: Default to “Delete” instead of “Cancel”
