    Help with setting up a Z50

    @mikew or anyone else out there with this camera, a friend of mine just picked up a Z50 and let's just say that she's tech challenged. She's looking for good tutorials on the Z50's focus modes as well as videos/articles on how best to set up the camera. I could walk her through some of it over the phone (she's in FL, I'm not) with a manual in front of me, but I'm just not familiar with some of the focus options on the mirrorless stuff.

    If you could link any articles or videos here that would be great.

    Jake, do you think there might be some similarities between the Z50 and the Z6/Z7? If so, @Danno has delved into some of the setting changes. Maybe he can point you in the right direction?

    Jake, there is a guy on YouTube that has both the Z50 and Z6. His channel is The Monochrome Memoirs. He is a wedding photographer and really knows the Z6 and Z50. He is getting ready to do a setup video. He is very responsive to email.
    Thanks/Like hark, BackdoorArts Thanks/liked this post

    Thanks. Yeah, she found him and was asking questions about the focus highlight peeking he was describing in one of them. I told her what I thought it was and what it was doing, but beyond that I was no help. LOL

    Will. Is very helpful guy. Infact he did a video on pairing focus peaking with AFC as confirmation of the focus plane. I use it myself and very effective. I think he will help your friend.
