Take a look at this.

You can set the aperture directly in the Manual and Aperture-priority modes and indirectly in the Shutter-priority and Program modes. See pages 39-40 of this manual.

How to set the shutter speed on the sanyo vpc-e2100

Actually, you can set this cameras shutter time by 1) Set top knob to M 2) Make sure that the bottom of the screen displays this "OK: Adjust" in yellow letters, and below this it tells you the the F: variables, and the Shutter speed. From what I have experienced, this only goes up to 15 seconds. But, this is great for light painting in total darkness!!!

What shooting mode do i need to shoot a subject clear but the background blurred

If you're using the point&shoot modes, use the Portrait mode. For more control you're going to want the PSAM modes.

What you want is a narrow depth of field. Depth of field is controlled by three factors. The first is the lens aperture: the wider the aperture (smaller f/numbers) the narrower the DoF. The second is the lens focal length: the longer the lens the narrower the DoF. The third is the camera-to-subject distance: the nearer you are to the subject the narrower the DoF.

The easiest way to control the aperture is to use the A mode. This lets you set the aperture and the camera will automatically set the appropriate shutter speed to give the proper exposure.

You can zoom in farther and move in closer (yes, the two are in conflict, you'll have to determine the proper position and focal length for the picture you want).

How to use the depth of field

Hi Michelle,

"Depth Of Field" (or DOF) is the amount of distance both in front and behind the point of focus that is also in focus. If there is a very short distance or range of an area that is in focus, it is said to have a shallow depth of field. This shallow DOF is achieved by setting the aperture or "f stop" to the wider or lower number settings. The smallest f stop number will provide the shallowest DOF. The DOF will become broader ir deeper with each increasing f stop setting.

Shallow DOF settings are often used in portraits where the background is desired to be blurred. It is also used in macro (extreme close up) photography, and anywhere a blurred foreground / background is desired.

The down side of this is that the shutter speed will increase proportionately, to maintain a properly exposed image. If you are trying to convey a sense of motion - by allowing the subject to be blurred slightly - you'll have some trouble due to the fast shutter speed. Neutral density filters fixed to the lens can correct this. The other side of the coin is in an indoor and evening outdoor photography. If you're not using a flash, you'll likely have to be shooting more towards the "open end" of the lens (more towards the lower number aperture settings) which while allowing enough light for an good exposure - will also reduce the DOF. Some people or objects in front of and behind the focus point will not be a sharp as a result.

The best thing to do is experiment. set a number of object on a surface - 2', 3' 4' 5' and 6' away from the camera. A tripod or other solid surface can help a great deal. Set the camera up for a "normal" exposure in a full manual or Aperture Priority Mode of the middle object 4 feet away. Take a picture. Next, open the aperture (make the number smaller) and adjust the shutter (if in manual) to expose properly again. Take the picture. Keep doing this both BOTH directions for the aperture from the first "Normal" exposure. Compare the results to see exactly how the DOF changes. Tinker with shutter speeds - or don't change them. Notice that with each time you open the f stop, the shutter must speed up to compensate for more light entering the camera due to the wider aperture setting (and vice versa).

I hope I understood your question correctly and that this helped.

Adjusting shutter speed

Hi - There is no direct way to set the shutter speed. This camera relies on the selection of a "scene" mode to automatically set the speed and aperture. All you can do is select the scene mode closest to your lighting conditions or the type of picture you are taking. Something to guide you are the speed & aperture numbers in the bottom of the LCD screen as per 11 and 12 in the picture below from page 7 of the manual:


The other thing you can change is the ISO speed see page 21 in the manual.

Experiment & let us know how it works out!
