I thought this was a good one to pass on.
Lots of you may already know about the DPOF (Digital Print Order Format) setting that is an option in your camera. However, for the few like me who had no idea about this function, this will make a fabulous difference to your crazy mornings.
” No, oh… just go away” (Yes, I talk to all my equipment. I am a friendly sort that way).
I had no idea what DPOF meant or how brilliant it was. I just wanted the screen not to pop up so I wouldn’t have to make it go away every day.
One day a fellow costumer and friend – Thanks Jeff! – was on set with me, and he asked if I needed any continuity photos printed. Of course I always do, although it would have been too hard to show him which of the multitude I wanted to print. I like to take a lot of photos. So I said I would do it later. He said,
“If you just choose them in the camera, then I would print with DPOF.”
“Sorry what?” See blank look on my face here.
So he showed me how the DPOF works and wow!
Printing photos is so much faster knowing this. Now while I am on set I can pre-choose which photos I want to print. When I go to the truck at the end of the day the card goes into the printer and with just one push of a button, away it goes.
