This wants to be a thread to post all those little tricks and discoveries and experiments that can be of interest to others but no so significant to start a whole thread. Here a couple from last week: 1. I like the gauge mode, never used before but works and I think is also a good technique training. But in general I really prefer the decluttered EVF mode even if the infos in the bottom cover the bottom part making composition confusing and take forever to disappear... So I just started using the EVF "style 2" (in the J menu). Yes, the image is smaller but is not cluttered and you get a free gauge as a bonus. 2. I like AEL, as a faster Exposure compensation alternative, or to lock the camera in a "almost manual" mode where you still can use exp comp. For example for shooting birds up on the trees against the bright sky I do AEL on the palm of my hand (yes, for real) point it up and compensate a little. Or for landscapes I just tilt the camera up and down until I'm happy with the exposure, press AEL and recompose.
