That depends on the amount of light on the subject. You neglected to specify the model of your Canon camera, but most of them have a light meter built-in. That light meter should suggest the proper exposure.

Nikon FG. Replaced 3V battery. On the M90 setting the film advances OK. On 'program' or other settings it will only advance once and after shutter fires it will not advance until put on...


M90 is a battery independent setting - it requires no battery power to function. If it won't advance until put on M90 from other settings, then either you're not allowing for proper exposure, have the settings incorrectly set (film speed, etc), or you have shutter issues. The shutter is electronically controlled on all settings except M90. In the auto setting, your lense MUST be set to the smallest aperture (biggest number). On any other setting, you can use it however you'd like. I'd suggest unloading any film, setting the shutter speed dial to 1/125 or so, opening the back and looking thru and firing the shutter. If it's not snapping open and immediately closed, theres an issue and you need to consult a repair technician either locally, through Nikon, or through KEH Camera online.

What type of film is best for the canon elan 7e, I just purchased this camera and it is my first real 35mm camera, I want nice pictures but don't want to pay out the nose for film, what is the best type of...


The first thing to decide is what sort of pictures do you want to end up with; black and white prints, colour prints, or colour transparencies. Then, in what format do you want to keep them; in negatives in storage, in digital format, or as prints in an album or book. If b/w and as prints, the best film to start with is Ilford either FP4 medium speed or HP5 higher speed. If colour print then Fuji or Kodak 100 ASA film. To get started really cheaply there are loads of these types of films available on ebay listed under Lomography, mostly out of date films, but they will work fine to get you started. Keep in the fridge as soon as you get them, but let them warm up before you load or shoot them. Supermarkets will develop only colour C41 process. I think a few will still scan to CD for you. If not buy a negative scanner, then you can print your own without a darkroom. For fine grain go to slower film speed (50 ASA), for higher speed you will get more grain.
Best thing of all is to process b/w yourself. Anything else just email me david@dtmpower.com Bye

The Miinolta 400 si SLR 35 mm is an excellent camera for a beginner as well as the seasoned photographer. It has a complete automatic mode for the point & shoot picture taker as well as manual modes if you want to favor shutter speed over aperature or aperature over shutter speed. I've had one for years and have gotten excellent results.

Dear sir,i purcahsed d90 cam but result is not good wat can i do ? wat can do setings get good result


The d90 takes excellent pics, but you need to understand the settings. White balance determines the accuracy of the color by setting what the camera sees as whit compared to what you do. Then you need to set the ISO, which is how sensitive it is to light. The higher the number, the more sensitive. In super bright situations you may need to go as low as 200, 800 in lowlight. 400 is a good average, 100 is rarely used. then your aperature value (a/f) this determines how much light the camera actually lets in, not to be confused with the sensitivity (ISO) which is specifically how sensitive the film is (not that you have any). Then is the shutter speed, which is how long the camera exposes the film when you hit the button-for fast moving objects, you want the shutter to open and close really fast so it doesn't blur;if it stays open too long it will capture the object in motion-if someone is running and you have a slow speed, the image could be the runner taking three steps as opposed to a still picture. To start.your setting when you take a pic, look at how much light you have. For indoors with no lights on during the day or outside cloudy, ISO 400. In at night with bright lights or outside sunny day, ISO 800. Then determine the speed of your object. A good standard for slow objects is 1/20-1/60. Set that, then set your aperature (f value) so the picture looks at the right brightness. If you adjust the aperature all the way and still need more or less light, adjust the shutter. Then cycle through your white balance options to make sure your color looks right and take a picture. If it comes out really grainy, your light settings were not right, you should pay attention to your ISO and aperature settings.

you should have at least 6in. of exposed film from the film canister to the take-up spool unless you loaded the film in total darkness.
open the back cover to make sure the shutter is working, reload and give it another try.

Hi Nathan,

Let's start shooting without film, first.

Example: shooting outside on a bright day, let says between 10:00 to 14:00 with some clouds.

Set camera ASA/ISO to 100
Set lens to the highest number, that's the largest F Stop number.
Set camera to P, which is program. Camera will select aperature and shutter for you.
All you need is the focus and look at those LED lights, to make sure it won't lit & flashing up at the top as well as on the bottom.

If you are viewing a image that is bight without clouds, then the Shutter should be 125 and the Aperature 16. If in the shade, it will be Aperaure 11.

Start with that first.

put simply the ISO number is how sensitive the film is to light, the higher the number the more sensitive the film. The ISO on the camera sets the exposure system to give the proper exposure for that film (the f/n80 usually sets the ISO automaticly). Also the higher the ISO the more grainy the picture, I would recommend using ISO 200 film for the pictures you describe. I would set the camera to the P setting it is a good all-around setting.

Grainy pictures


grainy pictures are possibly casued by a very high ISO (sensativity) setting, you should be on 100 or lower for best normal shots. Higher settings are for low light and custom shooting in strange lighting or aperature/shutter speeds. Try full auto setting.

That all depends on what you have your settings for. If you are not using the program mode, you'll need to make sure to check your Aperature and Shutter speed. Adjusting these might make your pictures come out better. Make sure to check your light meter, the needle or indicator should be in the middle for best results.

The aperature error is due to the fact that the lens in not a constant aperature design. The settings on the LCD are assuming you are at full wide angle setting. As this lens moves towards telephoto, the aperature changes about 2/3 of an f-stop due to the mechanical movement of the lens elements. So a manual setting of f4.0 at full telephoto will be more llike f5.0 in reality. It is too bad Epson could not make the mechanical aperature adjust to compensate, but every nice feature costs something. I have not had any issue with the shutter speed changing. One guess is that the camera has shutter speed/aperature combinations that it can't achieve due to mechanical limitations, so it chooses the available combination. Another is that it wasn't in manual mode, but rather aperature priority mode and the final adjustments changed the speed.
