Use the sheet below. Type a "1" in the green cell if the description applies to your camera. Better leave it blank if you do not know or hesitate. You can also delete the "1" in the first green cell if it does not apply to your camera. If you don't see any text in the cells, check if the slider on the right is moved to the top of the spreadsheet.
