Setting Up the Nikon D780 Menus

Detail of the Nikon D780 dSLR.

In order to take full advantage of the Nikon D780, you are going to need to dig into the Menus and Custom Settings, and set up the camera to work best for how you shoot and for the type of situations you are shooting. To assist you with this, I have created a comprehensive Nikon D780 Menu Setup Spreadsheet, which lists suggested settings and starting points for the Photo Shooting Menu and the Custom Settings. It has complete and separate camera setup recommendations for different types of shooting, including:

General / Travel / Street
Landscape / Architecture
Action / Sports
Moving Wildlife / Birds
Studio / Portraits
Concert / Performance

The Nikon D780 Menu Setup Spreadsheet can be downloaded from my website here. Printing instructions are also included on that page.

My companion guide, Nikon D780 Experience, goes into detail of all of the Menu and Custom Settings, with descriptions, explanations, and screen shots of all of the menu items. It is a comprehensive user guide, that also explains all of the functions, features, and controls of the Nikon D780, and will help you to fully take control of the camera and the images you create.
