Nikon D5200 and 35mm f/1.8 DX (body weighs 19.6 oz./555 g with battery and card, about $800, or $900 with 18-55mm lens). enlarge. My biggest source of support is when you use any of these links, especially this link directly to it at Adorama or directly to it at Amazon, when you get anything, regardless of the country in which you live. Thank you! Ken.

How to Set and Use the D5200's Autofocus System


Help me help you         top

I support my growing family through this website, as crazy as it might seem.

The biggest help is when you use any of these links when you get anything, regardless of the country in which you live. It costs you nothing, and is this site's, and thus my family's, biggest source of support. These places have the best prices and service, which is why I've used them since before this website existed. I recommend them all personally.

If you find this page as helpful as a book you might have had to buy or a workshop you may have had to take, feel free to help me continue helping everyone.

If you've gotten your gear through one of my links or helped otherwise, you're family. It's great people like you who allow me to keep adding to this site full-time. Thanks!

If you haven't helped yet, please do, and consider helping me with a gift of $5.00.

Press MENU, go to the left and select the bottom RECENT SETTINGS menu.


What it Does

This menu magically remembers the settings you adjusted most recently.

Sadly it's not that smart, and for some items, like FORMAT, you'll still have to find them in the SETUP menu.

It has two styles. We select which of these two styles we prefer at the "CHOOSE TAB" option at ehe bottom of the menu options in either style:


Recent Settings (default)

By default, the D5200 simply remembers most of the menus you've used, in the order you've used them.

This is very handy, especially after you've been shooting a while, as the items you use the most often are going to be at the top of this list by magic.


My Menu

If you prefer, this option lets you define what's in this menu, and the order in which everything is displayed.

If you're a heavy user as I am, you'll love this menu because you can set it up to do whatever you want.
