Ohh good question - never set them myself so I'd be interested to see what others actually use them for.
Mine's set for spot metering.
The two I use most are :
1 ) Toggles between manual / auto focussing mode for the lens ( use autofocus then switch to manual for fine tuning or recomposing the shot )
2) Toggles a Lock for the exposure. ( use spot metering on a subject, lock exposure then recompose the shot, if required )
Not quite the same, but I also have a couple of custom presets, one of which sets the mirror lock up to on, with aperture priority mode and aperture set to f11
Mine is set to turn shutter delay mode on/off.
Info panel, instantly allows me to check camera setup during weddings. Very useful!!
Spot metering for me.
Hi every one, some very interesting assignments to your Fn button/s. Could you mention what camera you have. I have a Nikon D5100, but the very assignment I want, which is toggling between meter modes it does not have, well, I'v not found it yet.
I have 5 fn buttons on one camera and I have no idea what most of them are set for
Spot metering on my D700 and live view on my D800.
