On the front below the lens release button is the focus selector switch for Continuous
AF, Single AF or Manual Focus. On the lens itself you'll find another switch for
Auto and Manual focus. On Nikon's VR series of lenses you'll also find a switch to
turn the Vibration Reduction feature on and off.
On the grip side you'll find the combination shutter release and power switch. Turning
the power switch beyond the "on" position illuminates the top and back data displays.
Press and hold the MODE button while turning the command dial to select the desired
exposure mode (Program AE w/Shift, Shutter-speed priority, Aperture priority or Manual).
Press and hold the +/- button and turn the command dial to set the desired exposure

AE/AF Lock button and the AF start button.
On the top left side you'll find buttons to change the flash mode, enable AE

adjustment and an eyepiece shutter for long exposures.
The viewfinder magnification is approx. 0.86x with 50mm f/1.4 lens set to infinity.
The eyepoint is a very comfortable 19.9mm. The focusing screen is interchangeable
and the D2H kit comes with the B-type BrightView Clear Matte Screen III.
