How to Adjust Settings via the Nikon D3300 Control Strip
Found on the lower-left corner of the Nikon D3300 back, the i button activates a control strip that gives you quick access to some critical shooting settings. Here’s how to use the control strip for viewfinder photography:
Display the Information screen.
You can do so by pressing the Info button.
Press thei button.
The top part of the display dims, and the two rows of settings at the bottom of the screen — which is collectively referred to as the control strip — become accessible, as shown on the left in the figure.
The currently selected setting appears highlighted, and its name is displayed at the bottom of the screen. For example, in the left screen in the figure, the AF-area mode option is selected. Options that are dimmed in the control strip aren’t available in the current exposure mode (Auto, P, Effects, and so on).
