What warnings / suggestions should I give my sister when I hand over my D90?
Apr 18, 2014

Hello Everyone,

My sister is going to become the new owner for my old D90.

What warnings / suggestions should I tell her? I'm planning to type up (my hand writing is terrible) a quick list of TO DOs and TO DON'Ts for digital cameras / dSLRs. She's had SLR cameras before and plenty of point-and-shoots . . . but this is going to be her 1st dSLR.

Warning things like . . .

Like . . . don't use an old flash unit with a digital camera, because you might blow it up . . .

And a warning that I reset the camera to factory default settings . . .

But also pointer things like . . .

but point out the "My Menu" which I totally missed the 1st year I had it available to me. DOPE. That is a completely useful feature to stop menu diving! <grin>

Unfortunately I don't have a manual for the camera to hand over to her, so she's going to have to download it.

Any help greatly appreciated!
