Most camera manufacturers have a training DVD advertised on their websites. These DVD's are excellent as they teach you about the manual use of the camera. Google Canon and look at their products.

The previous suggestion of a camera Club is a good one.

Good luck

There are a number of ways you can get to know how to use your camera (apart from reading the manual of course!). A quick Google on the web brought up some examples:

http://digital-photography-school.com/blog/got-a-digital-camera-for-christmas-learn-how-to-use-it-here/

http://www.digicamworkshops.com provide 'how-to' workshops around the country

Your local further education college may run courses (that's the route I took)

or there may be a camera club locally to you (your local library may have details about this) where new members are welcomed and encouraged

Just a few ideas - good luck!

Canon flash won't pop up


Flash will not pop up automatically if you're in manual mode. Try putting it in the green auto mode, then try again. Still not working? See if the little flash symbol button is on OFF. If so, put it to ON or auto. Should work.

How do I set my Canon EOS Rebel T3i 18 MP CMOS Digital SLR to auto mode


If you mean the auto exposure mode, turn the mode dial on the top of the camera to the "A+" position, between the "P" and the lightning bolt.
If you mean autofocus, set the switch on the lens to the AF position if the lens has an autofocus switch. On the camera, press the AF button (cursor-right) then turn the command dial to select the desired mode.
If you mean the auto white balance, press the WB button (cursor-up) then turn the command dial to select the desired mode.
In the auto exposure mode the ISO mode is set to auto, and you can't change this.

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

THIS IS MY FIRST CAMERA and i dony know anything about cameras


Try to google for your cam model and read the necessary reviews from people that posses a similar model. Also, go on forums related to your cam model and learn from other people experience in order to shorcut the eefort to learn your cam and use it at its most . If you have the cam manual, its a good start to learn the features. Also, try to get on photo techniques sites and learn the art of taking good pics. Profiency comes in time and always by testing. So, my advice, play with the cam :) Cheers

I changed my settings on my Nikon D40 to try and get pictures of lightning. Now ALL my pictures, even in daylight are coming our REALLY dark. I don't know what I did. Please help.


Make sure the aperture ring is set to "A", the mode dial to "P", the ISO to "auto ISO" with a range of about 100-400, the white balance to "auto WB", and focussing set to autofocus, not manual.

Is nikon a easy camera to learn how to use


Yes it is. On the dial button where you choose the shooting mode there are a few for absolute beginners like : portrait, landscape, macro, sport, ...
Just set your cam to one of those and you're ready to go. But on the same dial button you can access advanced modes where you have to set the parameters for taking a picture.
Any SLR camera will make better picture than a normal compact cam.
Check prices of canon, sony, samsung, panasonic and other competetive slr's.
My personal favourite is canon, but then again - it's all matter of choice ...

So in short - go for it!

How do you change the shutter speeds on an pentax k100 super, when it is on the AUTO PICT setting?


You can't.

In Auto Pict mode the camera selects the best of the pre-set Scene modes for the photograph which you're about to take. It's basically a variation of fully automatic mode, so the camera selects everything for you.

Auto Pict and Auto are designed to let anyone pick up your camera and take a fully automated snapshot without needing to worry about what settings to use.

To alter the shutter speeds you need to select an appropriate mode such as shutter priority or manual.

How do you bracket with the canon xsi slr?


This Can only be done in the non-auto modes of the Camera (P to A-Dep). Press the Menu Button and navigate to the second list/Menu there will be a option called AEB press on this and set the amount. Also make sure the Camera is in Continuous shot mode (press the Drive mode button left of the SET button).

The AEB (Automatic Exposure Bracketing) settings will be lost the next time the Camera is turned off.

I am getting over expose in auto mode in my canon


An slr has a mirror that needs to flip up at the moment of exposure so you don't get anything on the screen. As for the overexposure, you need to experiment with the ISO settings, the white balance and even the exposure compensation.

How to use a manual zoom lens with Evolt 510


By manual zoom lens I am assuming you mean a film camera lens. If it is one of our OM 1 or 2 lenses they can be used on our Olympus digital SLR camera but you will need to purchase an MF-OM1 converter to be able to adapt those lenses to fit on our digital SLR camera. Then you will only be able to shoot using those lens in manual focus mode. Auto focus mode will not be available.
