B. Saving the camera setup
B1. All files
All files are a great way of quickly changing
shooting modes and saving your favorite settings. Once
you have the camera setup in a way you are happy
with I recommend saving those settings as an All File.
See the section on all files for more information.
All Files: All Files can be used to save a snapshot of
the way the camera is set up or to load a specific set of
An all file saves almost every available user setting,
including things like frame rate, shooting mode, paint
settings, viewfinder and MLUT settings. All files are very
useful for quickly switching between modes of operation
or for sharing settings across multiple cameras. Each all fie
can be given a unique alpha-numeric name that describes
the settings being saved. You can save up to 99 all files on
an SD card.
To save an all file you will need to insert an SD card (SD
card or SDHC card) into the SD card slot. You do not need
a large capacity SD card. The files are very small. An 8GB
card would be large enough for most peoples needs.
To save an All File first you must set the name for the
All File you wish to save.
