    Just got a used AF100 and I have a question. I did look but could not find an answer so I apologize if this has been posted before. Is there a quick reset to factory default settings? If so where? I looked through my PDF copy of the user manual but could not find a reset for everything just resets on individual settings. Thanks!

    Is this what you're looking for (from the manual):

    "If you wish to initialize the user file and scene files at the same time, the user file and all six scene files can be restored to their factory default settings by selecting YES for the MENU INIT item on the OTHER FUNCTIONS screen."

    Maybe? Some of the terminology used is throwing me. If "initialize" means reset and "user file and scene files" mean settings then yea that would be it. Thanks.

    I have to say this is a top 3 AF100 thread. I already knew all the stuff the OP posted but reading through the thread I learned a couple more things that will come in handy.

    Here are the most important things to remember as far as usability is concerned, and as far as my opinion counts:

    1. OP #3 - The function Knob used to dial to a desired white balance. (Might I add you need to be in Preset for this to work) This is so important to me because I'm a perfectionist nerd when it comes to matching footage. In fact I'm going to keep this thread on my Bookmarks because I always forget that you have to hold down the Function Knob in order to do this. There is one embarrassing time I was trying to show off to my friend about my new knowledge of the AF100 and I totally forgot how to do this so I just looked like a jerk.

    2. OP #7 - That is great Focus advice that I always use in the field and started using since I first started shooting sports and one of my teachers told me that it is easier to hold focus when viewing the image in Black & White. It is completely true and everyone should learn the benefits of this technique. What I do with the AF100 is this: I set up the viewfinder to be in Black and White while having the LCD in color. This way I can look at focus as much as my annal personality needs me to, while looking at the full image in the LCD.

    3. Being able to copy a card to another card in camera. What a great function and I will start using it when I need to backup small shoots on the fly without having to bust out my laptop.

    Don't get me wrong, the other tips and tricks are very important and everyone should read through this whole post, but these stick out to me in order to be better than average with the AF100.
