I'm tony north or been for my book stunning digital photography i'm going to give you a brief overview of the Nikon D5300 black friday it's not a review we want to show you how to actually use it hands-on i'm going to walk you through what i think are the most important features and i'm going to tell you how I set mine up I'm also going to show you all the different tasks that you'll need to know how to perform if you're going to work through my book stunning digital photography so if you already know some of the basic stuff there is a table of contents in the description that allow you to skip through the video so you don't have to sit through the whole thing you can jump just to the tasks that you might already know about for example if you're already familiar with how to work your camera and lens you can just jump forward to the recommended setup so you can learn how I like to set up my D 5300 first let's go over the physical controls on the camera the stuff you need to do before you take your first picture you'll have to open up the memory card slot here and put in a memory card take standard SD cards these are relatively inexpensive now I'm not going to go into a great deal of detail about picking your first SD card but my recommendation would just be to get an inexpensive 32 gigabyte card no big task you'll need to perform before taking your first picture is putting in the battery the slot is here on the bottom just make sure the battery is charged up frankly when I first get my new camera I was cramming the battery and there even though it's half dead but that that should be fine too but when you get a chance charge it up you'll attach and detach the lens by pushing this button here and twisting it to the right now that's opposite of most camera manufacturers so if you try to twist it after pushing the button and it doesn't come loose try just turning it the other direction you don't have to push the button to attach the lens again once you have your memory card battery and lens attached you can turn your camera on the switch is right here next to the shutter button just go from off to on and it should power right up now if you want to take a picture all you have to do is use this it's in green mode there the green auto mode does everything for you automatically so you can just put it over there put the camera up to your eye and it takes a picture for you it's making a lot of decisions for you automatically and one of the things we'll do is we walk through this is show you how to take manual control so it's not popping that flash up all the time now walk you through some more of the cameras controls the next most important control to master is the little flippy screen here flips up from the side and then you can view information about your current settings or you can switch into Live View mode to switch into the Live View mode push this lever here next to the mode dial you'll hear the mirror pop up and then you can see through the lens here this is useful if you're holding the camera out in front of you so if you're shooting like this or if you're using a tilt II display to hold it over your head or down low to the ground Y view mode is useful however I recommend using the viewfinder most of the time when you use the viewfinder the camera focuses faster
