    I have exactly the same problem!

    It has worked fine until 2 days ago when it rotates but doesn't alter the exposure, aperture or shutter speed!

    I got it from Argos, and it is 5 months out of warranty, I am going to ring Fuji on tuesday, maybe they will repair for free if it is a design fault?

    I have only been using the command wheel since September when I started a photography course and learnt how to use it!

    It cost £400, and I am still paying my parents back for it, so I can't afford dear repairs!

I emailed Fuji. My S9500 was 18 months out of warranty when the wheel ceased working, i bought it shortly after they hit the market.
They asked for serial number then sent me a packing set. Posted to them, returned to me within 5 days. Repaired by replacing top plate through which wheel works. NO CHARGE not even postage.

Great service and a great camera. All over Europe and over 9000 exposures.

I`ve just contacted Fuji spares department and they are sending me return packaging so that they can look at mine . I know that the command dial shaft is broken cos I`ve had it to pieces....... they stated that they will not supply me the part, but may repair it free of charge if it is a design fault !!! . They are not advertising it, but I believe that they are accepting fault on these S9500 s

This is a known fault on early 9500s, mine stopped working after about 6 months (bought in January 2006) and Fuji UK fixed it for free under warranty. I have seen many many reports of this fault. Suggest talking to Fuji.

If it is still under warranty- your are in luck A repair shop if you can one- will charge about the value of the camera. Bearing this in mind and if you have the nous and suitable fine tools- have a go at looking under the button- you may find slight adjustment to be made. You do this by removing the batteries and removing the fine screws that hold the top plate and /or back cover on. But don't hold your breath.

How to change the shutter speed on my nikon n65 film 35mm slr camera


In the manual and shutter-priority modes (set the dial to "M" or "S"), turn the command dial to change the shutter speed. In the aperture-priority mode (set the dial to "A"), turning the command dial changes the aperture and the camera will set the shutter speed appropriately.

If you need a manual, you may download a copy from here.

How can I use the aperture ring instead of set it to minimum in order to use the ring not the dial. I am trying to operate this way with an AF lens (not af-s) and my d5100.


Set the aperture ring to its minimum setting (largest f/number) and leave it there. You control the aperture from the camera body, exactly the same way as on a lens without an aperture ring. In the A mode, simply turn the command dial. In the M mode, hold down the aperture (exposure compensation) button and turn the command dial.

How do I turn on the Rear Command Dial in my Nikon D80 Digital Camera?


That depends on what you want the command dial to do. If you're in either the Manual (M) or Shutter Priority (S) modes, the command dial will change the shutter speed. If you're in the Program (P) mode, the command dial will shift the program exposure. If you're in any other exposure mode, the command dial does nothing.

If you hold down the metering mode button, the command dial will change the exposure metering mode.
If you hold down the exposure compensation button, the command dial will change the amount of the exposure compensation.

If you hold down the release mode button, the command dial will change the release mode.

If you hold down the AF button, the command dial will change the autofocus mode.

If you hold down the QUAL button, the command dial will change the image storage mode.

If you hold down the ISO button, the command dial will change the ISO.

If you hold down the WB button, the command dial will change the white balance setting.

If you're looking at the menus, the command dial will navigate the menu.

If you're reviewing pictures, the command dial will move to the previous or next picture.

Hope this helps. If you still have problems or other questions about this, please don't hesitate to reply to this post.

How can i set aperture and shutter speed at P mode? i scroll the command dial but all that comes in is P and P*


Once you're in the P mode, turning the command dial will change the shutter speed and aperture in opposite directions to maintain the same exposure (within the limits of the camera and the lens). You should see the shutter speed in the viewfinder change.

If you want absolute control of the shutter speed, change to the S mode. The command dial will then allow you to control the shutter speed, and the camera will automatically change the aperture to compensate (again, within the limits of the lens).

What is the command dial?


The command dial is the knurled wheel that falls under your right thumb when you hold the camera in shooting position. It's used in conjunction with the buttons on the camera to change settings.

How do I adjust the aperture on the Nikon D5000 DSLR camera?


It depends on the exposure mode.

In Program mode (P), turn the command dial and the camera will shift the exposure by changing both the aperture and the shutter speed.

In Aperture-priority mode (A), turn the command dial and the camera will adjust the shutter speed to suit.

In Manual mode (M), hold the aperture button and turn the command dial.

If you're using a lens with an aperture ring, turn it to its smallest aperture (largest f/number) and lock it.

How can I change the exposures, or f-stops on the Nikon N75 35mm camera?


That depends on the exposure mode. In the point&shoot modes the camera sets the exposure.

In P you can turn the command dial to change the exposure.

In S you turn the command dial to set the shutter speed, the camera changes the aperture to suit.

In A you turn the command dial to set the aperture, the camera changes the shutter speed to suit.

In M you turn the command dial to set the shutter speed, you hold down the aperture button and turn the command dial to set the aperture.
