Question about Fuji FinePix S2000hd Digital Camera

1 Answer

New To This

I'm new to true photography (using apertures, etc.) and have been unsuccessfully trying to figure out how to set the aperture on my Fuji Fine Pix S2000HD. My owner's manual has gone missing and I need help. How do you use the settings on this camera? Stupid question I'm sure and shows my ignorance but I am trying to learn all I can. Not being able to use my settings is very frustrating. Can you help me? Thanks.

To manually set the shutter speed and aperture, first set the top command dial to "M". Press the +/- button. Now you'll see yellow arrows beside the speed & aperture. Press the up/down on the navigation dial to change shutter speed & the left/right to change aperture. Scale at bottom will show whether and how much you are over or underexposing.

How doI set up f11 on this camera


Do you mean set the aperture at f/11?

If you want the camera to set the shutter speed for proper exposure, turn the mode dial to the A position for Aperture Priority. Press the +/- button to display the shutter speed and aperture. Press cursor-up/down to change the aperture and the camera will change the shutter speed to give the proper exposure.

If you want to set the shutter speed and aperture yourself, turn the mode dial to M for Manual. Press the +/- button. Press cursor-up/down to set the shutter speed, cursor-left/right to set the aperture.

Full details are in the Shooting Mode section of the manual.

I am new so do I keep the f22 lock on when auto focusing?


No. You only need to do that when using any exposure modes where the camera needs to take full control of the aperture setting for you (basically everything except full manual metering and aperture priority metering). The idea is that by setting the lens to the minimum f-number (aperture) the camera can then automatically set the actual aperture required by the exposure meter and exposure program to anything between maximum aperture (lowest f-number) and the f22 set on the lens.

Aperture settings are independent of autofocus on all SLR cameras. If you're new to SLR photography then I highly recommend the latest (2009) edition of John Hedgecoe's New Manual of Photography. The link is just to show you the book and not an endorsement of the featured supplier; I'm sure that you'll want to make your own buying choices.

I hope this has helped, if so please return the favour by taking a moment to rate my answer. If not then please explain your problem in more detail and I'll be happy to offer further assistance.

You answer to my resent problem on night shots...


Hey matty reps,
Aperture priority is a setting on most SLR cameras where you choose the aperture, which is the size of the opening in the lens that lets light thru, and the camera chooses a shutter speed that provides a correct exposure. The smaller the opening in the lens the less light that gets thru to expose the film so the shutter has to stay open longer to provide a correct exposure, but the smaller the aperture you use the larger the depth of field. Depth of field is how far in front and behind the subject things are in sharp focus. Canon refers to aperture priority as Av mode. With flash photography the camera usually sets the shutter speed to a designated speed called xsync speed, which is probably 1/90th of a second since this is what you said the camera was setting it to, but that speed is irrelevant since the duration of the flash is what determines the exposure time with flash photography which is usually around 1/10000 of a second (easily fast enough to stop almost any action). In aperture priority with a flash the smaller the aperture you use the more that will be in focus but more light will be needed from the flash and the closer you will need to be to your subject. A hotshoe mounted flash will help tremendously. I hope I didn't confuse you more, but as I said before you are attempting something difficult to do in photography. Keep trying and you'll get it!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Yes, on this camera you leave the aperture ring at f22 and use the camera's controls to set your f-stop. It won't work is you change the ring on the lens. You gain the control of the aperture in the 'M' and 'A' modes. The 'P' setting is for the camera to pick both speed and aperture for you. 'S' is shutter priority, etc

Problem with my Fuji FinePix S1 Pro Digtal


The f-- message can mean several different things.

The easiest to rectify is the case where a Nikkor AF lens is not completely clicked into position. In that case, make sure to turn the lens firmly into place.

Further, depending on the camera mode, if the lens is an AF-D style lens, the aperture must be set to the smallest aperture (that is, the highest aperture number, usually 22 or 16).

If the lens is a non-chipped lens (T-mount, AI-S, etc.), you will only be able to use it in "A" (aperture-priority) or "M" (manual) modes. The "f--" message shows up for other modes.

1) turn the mode switch/knob on the left of the camera to M ( manual mode ) 2) turn your lens to the highest f-stop ( 22 or 16 depending on your lens ) 3) in front of shutter release button you have control for your aperture : turn until the desired aperture is displayed ( view finder or the LCD monitor on the top ) 4) your shutter speed setting is controlled with your thumb with the control situated next to the strap lug on the right hand side of the camera. 5) press shutter release half way and look through viewfinder and see light meter reading and adjust either shutter speeds or the aperture as explained being guided by the l.meter.
