Initial set-up for k-50

I searched some past threads but have not found anything that is exactly what I am looking for.


Let's say your k-30/k-50 got set back to default, what would you change in your menu settings? I realize this is somewhat personal, but if I had some direction on what many of you change, it would give me a starting point.


Thanks!

Welcome to the forum!

I've listed some of my preferred K-50 settings in my review:

Hey, welcome!
If you are a beginner, I suggest you leave most things as they are and simply learn what they do at first. You will develop a personal style over time. Thing is, DSLR cameras allow a LOT of customization.
Just try to get out of the green/auto mode. Learn about exposure and auto focus.

Thanks to both of you. I will check out your review, and the camera has not been in auto mode since coming out of the box haha. But I was referring more to the other menu settings, not so much Aperture, Shutter, etc.
