  1. Thanks so much for this video! It will definitely come in handy. I know better understand what ISO settings do.

    My boyfriend is buying me this for Christmas. I cannot wait!!!! I create manipulations in Photoshop and really want to start taking my own stock images with something better than my iPhone. You can see some of my work on my google+ page.

  2. Had the camera for a year, didn't even know what the funtion button was for. So yeah, i'm dumb and not curious enough it seems.

  3. Hii Paul, I wanna ask which image quality ( RAW, FINE, NORM, BASIC)is good for shooting and on which condition thanks.

  4. Thanks very much for this great tutorial, I got a new 3400 today which is not my first dslr but my first Nikon and this video has really helped me with getting familiar with the camera.

  5. Just stumbled on your channel. Nice clear instructions, at last I know how fn button works with iso. Look forward to more vids

  6. I followed Iso sensitivity settings steps ,but I get an error message "This option is not available at current settings or in the camera's current state." when i am triyng to changeAuto Iso sensitivity control wich is ON.Unable to change that.

  7. I recently got this camera. I mostly use it for video right now but I have an upcoming trip and will be taking a lot of pictures so thanks for the quick tips! Just subbed so I can learn more 🙂

  8. Hi Paul, I was thinking of getting a D5600 as an "entry-level" DSLR (been using Panasonic FZ200 for last 6 years, good bridge camera with great zoom). However, another reviewer said the stock 18-55mm it comes with is rubbish, and to invest in a better lens, he recommended 16-80mm. That lens costs around $1,000, the D5600 body costs $800!!?! Can't justify that sort of lens expense. What would you recommend?

  9. Thanks a bunch !!! For a novice in photography to embark on the tips stated shall do a world of good ! Fantastic great work !!!
