What make and model camera? You said it's not a sportster, that still leaves a lot of room.

The best exposure setting depends on the circumstances, the subject, and what YOU want the picture to say to the viewer. The best settings for a portrait won't be the same as for a landscape, for example.

You might want to visit your local library and browse through their photography books. Any book on introductory photography will explain the rudiments of exposure, including shutter speeds and f/stops.

How do I change the aperture when my camera is in manual mode


You have to hold down the exposure compensation button at the same time as turning the control dial.
The values appear on the control panel screen.

I found this on page 33 of the manual...
Set the mode dial to M and turn the control dial to set the value.
• To set the shutter speed: Turn the control dial.
To set the aperture value:Turn the control dial while holding down the
[+-](exposure compensation) button.

The exposure level indicator appears on the control panel screen, showing the difference (ranging from -3 EV to +3 EV) between the exposure value calculated by the currently selected aperture
and shutter speed compared to the exposure value considered optimum by the camera.

What does the AE icon mean?


It means its set for Auto Exposure. Unless you're going for fancy effects like a faded look or a washed out over exposed look, its generally best to leave it on auto instead of lowering or raising the exposure value (EV).
Please leave feedback if this was helpful. Thanks.

BLURRED IMAGES


This is usually because it is hard to keep the camera absolutely still when taking the picture. It also happens when the subject is moving.

You could test that these are the problems by taking a picture of a still subject with the camera sitting steadily on a table. If the image is not blurred it means the camera itself is not faulty, and that it is not causing the problem.

The tendency to blurring depends upon how bright the light is. The sensor of digital cameras, or film on 35mm cameras, requires a certain amount of light to be able to record a good image, and the time needed to gather this amount of light is called the 'exposure' (e.g. 1/100 or 1/8 sec.).

If the light is poor the exposure will be longer and the image will be more likely to be blurred if the camera is not still, or if the subject moves.

The ISO setting (ASA for the film of 35mm cameras) determines the sensitivity of the sensor the higher settings, say ISO 800, being more sensitive. The disadvantage is that for each camera the image becomes too blotchy to be any use at a certain high ISO.

At higher ISO the sensor requires a lower exposure, and the Fnumber, which is the degree of light the lens lets in, has a similar influence: e.g. a lower Fnumber, say F2, allows a shorter exposure than F5.6.

With experience and practice, cameras which have a 'stabiliser' (O.I.S) can produce good pictures with exposure down to 1/4 sec but the limit is more likely to be 1/15 sec to 1/8 sec at best.

Untill you know how to use the manual settings it is best to use automatic settings and an ISO of 200 to 400 at most.

I dont know if i can change the iso on the nixion n55??


You can't. If the film cartridge has the DX markings then the camera will automatically set it to the correct speed. Without the DX markings the camera goes to ISO 100. You can adjust this by using exposure compensation. For example, if you have ISO 200 film loaded without the DX markings, set the exposure compensation to -1.0 and you will get the proper exposure.

Hello :) I have a Sony Cyber-shot digital camera...8.1 mega pixels! I am no Photographer and find that the manuals speak a language that is hard for me to understand :( My question is: I take closeup shots...


To "up the exposure a bit" you need to dial in positive exposure compensation. Since you didn't specify what model camera you have, I can't give you specific instructions on how to do that.

To reduce digital noise ("grain"), put more light on the subject. Use the flash if needed. Set the ISO as low as possible, assuming your camera allows you to set it.

Use a tripod or other stable platform.

Use any part of the zoom range, as appropriate for the picture.

I would suggest that you go to a bookstore or your local public library and browse through the photography section. An introductory book will explain much of the language, making the manual more comprehensible.

Over exposure in sunlight


Check your ISO setting and your "exposure compensation" setting. ISO is best on "auto ISO" and exposure is best set to "0".

I assume you mean the 'bulb' setting. The selector dial needs to be set to 'M'. By using the wheel under the release button, rotate it counter-clockwise till you see 'bulb'

Image Properties shown....You've been great!!!! Few more....


1: it just adds and copies existing pixels with the digi zoom. I never fooled with it for you can just take the image with a paint program and blow it up as big as you want.. with decreasing detail.just start with a nice high megapixel like 5M camera but you'll need a bigger memory card.

2: exposure bias at 0.0 is what the camera sets as standard. adjusting this in the "M" mode allows more exposure "+" or less "-". making the aperture bigger or smaller to allow more light or less at higher shutter speeds or low speeds. 1/100 is good.
3: yes but try it out and put it on automatic first.
4: focal length or f stop I'm confused. The aperture setting is known as the f-stop. The lowest number f-stop lets the most amount of light reach the image sensor. A high f-stop increases the depth of the field.witch is focal length. so I think I was wrong in the "feet" meaning f/2.8 for portrait or up close f'/16 for front and background or landscape. also set your ISO around 80 - 120 for the best exposures or pictures.

Camera Flash & Picture


I just got this camera for Christmas the only way that I know of how to fix it is to change the exposure manually. If the picture is to bright you need a negative exposure, if it is to dark you need a positive exposure. I have noticed that the auto exposure does not get the correct setting that you need for the lighting.
