Of course I look at the Info Display on the back. My eyes are getting old and the Display shows enlarged versions of the data cramped into the Viewfinder.

But I never paid much attention to the small icons at the bottom of the Info Display. You know, ISO Noise/Active D Light etc that all become highlighted when you hit the Info button a second time.

Playing with this feature yesterday I came across 3 icons that escaped notice before. And these three unlock some scarce & valuable real estate. I'm talking about the instant ability to configure 3 buttons on the camera — AE/AF Lock, Preview, Fn.

Before this discovery, I'd spent much time setting up special configurations of the three buttons in U1/U2 & Save Settings. Which in every instance required a 2 or 3 or 4-step routine of going to My Menu, or Custom Menu>Shooting Menu to set button options to deal with varying shooting conditions. With the icons in INFO, it's a quick.

My gosh. The D7000 just keeps on hurling pleasant surprises at me. Has anyone else had an awakening to INFO Display?
