Use the wheel next to the on/off switch. It should be at normal position for your right thumb. Make sure the On switch is all the way up to the line, past the first on-setting. This enables the wheel.

SOURCE: XT problem with white balance/aperture

You should be able to set your white balance by taking a photograph of something white filling the screen with the correct exposure. If it is underexposed, you will not get white, it will look yellowish. Make sure while you are photographing the object, you switch your lens focus mode to manual.
Go the second setup (tools) tab and select custom wb. The custom white balance screen will appear and you will choose the image that you want to base the white balance off of by pressing the set button.
This will take you back to the menu. Go back to white balance and choose custom wb down in the bottom right corner of the screen.

Hope this helps!

You may try this. Reset all in the menu setup.
What you will be doing to to reset all the settings back to factory settings. Then you will want to go through the settings and reset them the way you prefer.

I cannot change my aperture priority mode in manual when I try, I get "L"


In aperture mode TA, you only can change the aperture manualy. The camera will try to set everything else, like shutter speed and ISO, according to what the camera thinks is the best. Will look at the scene and focal length. The amount of light should be enough according to you ISO setting.
In manual, M you have to do everything yourself. You can get under or over exposed pictures. When you choose "wrong" settings. But what is wrong? You decide what part of the photo has to be correct, even when the rest is to dark or to light. It could be you did setup the camera to warn you when over or under exposure occurs. I'm not that familiar with the canon DSLRs to be 100% sure, but I would look there.
again, aperture mode is not a manual mode and the camera needs enough light so it can manoeuvre in the settings you made.

Why does my brand new Canon 6D freeze when shooting in RAW


The question in the title and the first sentence imply to me that you have confused manual mode and RAW format.

Title: "Why does my brand new Canon 6D freeze when shooting in RAWD freeze when shooting in RAW"

First sentence: "My brand new Canon 6D freezes when I try to shoot in manual."

Manual mode means you are responsible for all of the settings related to exposure (aperture, ISO, and shutterspeed). RAW is a specific file format to save the photo. They are independent of each other.

My guess is that in manual mode you have the shutterspeed set to the maximum of 30 seconds. The camera isn't going to automatically adjust it for you in manual mode. If you're new to DSLRs, start with Ae (Aperture priority) or Tv (Shutter priority). In Ae mode, you control the aperture and the camera will select the shutterspeed. In Tv mode, you select the shutterspeed and the camera selects the aperture for you. Start off with Auto ISO. This will help you learn what combinations of settings work well together.

I have a canon rebel T3 . How do I change the aperture ?


On right hand top of the camera there is a Mode dial. Move the dial to Av (aperture priority) then rotate the wheel in front of this dial to set the F stop. The shutter speed will automatically adjust by the light meter.

How do you set the aperture and shutter speed independently


First, make sure you're in the manual exposure mode, not manual focus mode, as set by turning the mode dial to the "M" position.
In manual exposure mode, turning the main command dial should change the aperture, while turning the subcommand dial should change the shutter speed.
If the two command dials don't have the expected effect, reply to this post and we can troubleshoot further.

Manual that came with camera does not explain symbols for setting the mode. Amazing! What do M, A,S,P, N and SP 1 and SP2 stand for? the only things I understand are Auto and Panorama.


M stands for 'Manual mode'. This is the mode wherein you set your shutter speed and aperture setting. A stands for 'Aperture Priority'. This is the mode where you set the aperture or opening of the lens and the camera sets the shutter speed. The lower the aperture number setting, the more light penetrates the lens, a faster shutter speed is needed. This setting is usually used for portrait scenarios. S stands for 'Shutter priority'. This is the mode where you set the shutter speed and the camera sets the aperture. The higher shutter speed number, the lower aperture number is set by the camera to accommodate more light into the lens. This setting is usually used for capturing moving objects like cars. P stands for 'Program Mode'. The camera takes care of different settings except for the aperture and the shutter speed. You get to choose combinations of aperture and shutter speed settings that will not change the exposure of your scene. This is like a combined 'A' and 'S' mode with different combinations. N stands for 'Natural Light'. The camera tries to make use of available light. This is ideal for indoor use when flash is prohibited or when you just want to capture the ambiance of the scene. The camera sets a high sensitivity setting to handle low light conditions. The drawback of this would be grainier pictures. SP1 and SP2 stand for Scene Position 1 and 2. This is like a memory setting for most commonly used scene settings. For example, you can assign SP1 for landscape mode scene and SP2 for night mode scene. You have 13 scenes to choose from in your camera, 2 of which you can assign in SP1 or SP2. The default setting for SP1 is Portrait mode and for SP2, it is Landscape mode.
Hope this helps.

Hello, I just brought my sigma macro 105mm lens and Im having trouble getting it to work probably on my nikon d90, they only way I can get it to work is turn the aperture on the lens to f32 I cant change...


Turn the aperture ring to f/32 and leave it there. After that, forget the lens has an aperture ring at all. You can let the camera control the aperture in any mode except the M and A modes. In the M and A modes, you control the aperture by turning the command dial on the front of the camera, the same way you control the aperture on a lens without an aperture ring.

Hi, please help my F stop not displaying & I dont know how to change it. i'm trying to work in the manual setting. i'm a complete novice & finding it difficult. many thanks sara...


If the lens has an aperture ring, set it to its smallest setting (largest f/number). In the manual exposure mode, change the aperture by turning the subcommand dial (on the front of the camera).
Take a look at this.

I have a Nikon d40X. When I attempt to take a picture, the shutter speed is EXTREMELY slow. Because of this, my pics are all blurry. I am not sure what caused this to start happening. Can someone please...


Steve - the Nikon dSLR cameras are very capable. Check the position of the mode dial:

989d80e.jpg

The image above has it set to "P" or Program mode. Change it to "AUTO" and take a picture of a well lit scene (preferably outside in the daytime). You should get a properly exposed image. If the mode dial is set to "M" or Manual mode, the shutter speed is probably too low, and the aperture either too small or large if the image is dark or light, respectively. You'll have to turn the knobs on the front AND rear to adjust BOTH shutter speed and aperture (f-stop) to find the right combination of exposure time and aperture opening allowed into the camera to suggest motion (more blurry with a slow shutter - or more sharp with a fast shutter), in addition to DOF or depth of field.

You may have a similar issue when set to "P". If you are in this mode, the camera will attempt to determine the best shutter and aperture settings for you. You can veiw the settings chosen in the view finder. Likewise, you may override either shutter speed or aperture changing the aperture OR shutter speed control knobs. The camera will automatically change the other - to provide a properly exposed image.

Review the manual here. Page 39 details the mode dial and how it works. Page 18 discusses the
"Digital Vari-Program" modes depicted by the icons, and the "AUTO" label. These modes should be avoided, unless you are happy with "snapshot" type pictures. The most creativity will come from using the camera in one of the other modes: M,A,S or P. Taking the time to learn them will greatly increase your enjoyment of the camera and resulting images.

I hope this was a good starting point for you & good luck!

How do i change my aperture setting on my samsung v800?


Turn the mode dial to "A". Turn the jog dial to change the aperture and the camera will change the shutter speed to match. You can also go to the manual mode, where you have to set both the aperture and shutter speed.
Full details are in the "How to use the APERTURE PRIORITY mode" section of the manual (page 22 in my copy). If you need a copy of the manual, you may download one here.

How do i change the apperture on my lumix g1?


Hi

I hope you're familiar with the Mode Dial, which is the dial with PASM on it. "A" stands for aperture and if you turn to that mode, you can then change the aperture by turning the (jagged) dial in front of your camera, on the hand grip. Here's a pic:8_3_2012_6_21_50_am.jpg

You can also change the aperture in "M", standing for manual mode.

Hope this helps!
