Whether you’re new to DSLRs or have some experience, the following guide will help you get the most out of your D5600 quickly and easily.

Quick tips

1. Start with the Program auto mode (P), and gradually work your way into the semiautomatic Shutter-priority (S) and Aperture-priority (A) modes before moving into the Manual (M) exposure mode. See below for descriptions of the D5600’s exposure modes and advice on when and how to use the different options.

2. Get to know the “i” button, located to the right of the LCD panel (and on the LCD touch screen). Pressing this button (or tapping the on-screen icon) gives you quick access to all of the major shooting settings. This lets you change settings on the fly without going into the full menu system. The Info button, to the right of the viewfinder, gives you an overview of your current settings, but it’s for viewing only.
