I think I'll keep it simple.

I'll tell her about not using old flash units, because she has some old flash units from the old film days lying around. And if she uses an old flash, she may end up overloading the camera and frying the circuits and killing the camera. So . . . I figure I have to tell her about that.

And maybe a little about manual iso vs. auto iso and what the settings mean. That there is different metering modes. And manual vs. autofocus and AF-C vs AF-S vs AF-A. So . . . the stuff that is different than her Pentax K1000 . . . LOL.

And that there is a "My Menu", which I totally missed at first.

Thanks everyone!

Again, TMI.

Yeah. Probably.

But she's not a noob when it comes to photography.

She was great with her Pentax K1000. I manual focus, manual exposure camera. So she knows about photography. I'm just thinking of pointing out the stuff on the camera that is different than her Pentax K1000. ie. Autofocus . . . as she's not had to deal with that before . . . or auto-iso 'cause with her camera . . . once you've stuck the film in . . . you basically forget it until you switch film . . .

. . . so just the stuff on the cameras that have been added since her Pentax K1000.
