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.

My S1 displays fee and I can't use it. What does it mean and how do I fix it.


You're using a lens with an aperture ring on it, aren't you?

Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number) and lock it in place if it has a lock. You can control the aperture from the camera body the same way as on a lens without an aperture ring.

Trying to use a 500mm lense with a nikon ring adapter, manual focus but all I get is "f--" flashing when I turn it on. Any suggestions?


Set the aperture on the lens to its smallest setting (largest f/number) and set the camera to the Manual exposure mode. You have to meter manually and control the aperture from the camera as on a lens without an aperture ring.

Displaying FEE


This problem is usually seen on Nikon models, but as your camera is basically a Nikon/Fuji hybrid it's not surprising that it's occurred on yours.

FEE usually means that you have not set the lens aperture ring to it's smallest (highest number) setting. Your camera needs this to happen in order for it to automatically control the lens aperture as it then allows the camera to utilise any aperture between the maximum and minimum settings.

If this doesn't fix your fault then try another Nikon AF lens; if the problem remains then you have a faulty camera body, usually a broken AI (auto indexing) post on the body which senses when the fitted lens has been set to minimum aperture.

Delay between pressing the shutter button and the camera firing. Canon40d


Not sure what you are really asking here as it would depend on the settings you have selected to use.

For instance if your ISO ) ASA film speed) is set to 64 and you have an aperture priority setting of say 6 then the shutter will go clllllllllickkkkk ( be slow say 1/30th of a second. As opposed to say ISO of 200 and an aperture of 16 the camera will go cliick now if you select ISO 400 and aperture of 16 the camera will clk This is the "sports type setting for fast moving objects ) I am presuming daylight average light for the above
after 4pm or in some shade areas shutter speed can also be delayed and the picture result is blurred due to camera shake at low speeds.
then u need a tripod

Now what have you selected as an amateur snapshot artist?
Day night settings
AUTO
ISO 100 + ........
portratit
landscape
night

Any of these settings on auto will also be delayed depending on ISO and the amount of ambiant light available to the camera. So you need to get to know your cameraq by practice

Some settings ( see manual) suggest using shutter priority to get good pics
Others suggest aperture priority.

It might be better for you to get a basic digital photography book to help you understand and compose good pics ( Digital photography for dummies ( or DP basics)


Hers a tip worth remembering with apertures

Smaller the number larger the hole(aperture)
Larger the number smaller the aperture

larger hole for lower light
smaller hole for very bright light

so experiment with aperture to be familiar on what to select for the degree of light then test different ISO speeds and keep notes.

When you use zoom increase the EV by 1+ and see what the difference is to standard distance

All great fun and learning and now cheaper because you dont have to pay for film or development to see what creative pics you have made!

So perhaps the camera does not have a problem, it just has you, and

you need to bond so Good Luck and ,many happy snappy hours of fun

You might try overriding the white balance by setting it for fluorescent. Those bulbs are the usual cause of the green hue

set it in manual, and open up the aperture. Flash exposure is mainly affected by aperture, Also make sure your shutter speed is set at flash sync speed

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.

Fuji Finepix S1 Pro fE E blinking when turned on?


Might Help:
Notes on G-type Nikkor and other CPU Nikkor lens
The G-type Nikkor lens has no aperture ring; aperture should be selected from camera body. Unlike other CPU Nikkor lenses, aperture does not need to be set to minimum (largest f-number). CPU Nikkor lenses other than G-type Nikkor lens have an aperture ring. Set the lens aperture to its minimum and lock. When the lens is not set to its minimum aperture setting and the power switch is turned on, "fEE" blinks in the control panel and viewfinder and the shutter cannot be released.

Blue tint when shooting aperture priority


Hello, First of all let's explain what aperture priority does in terms of electronics and mechanical/optical changes in the way the camera takes photos. Unlike most point and shot digital cameras, your one has variable aperture range. Aperture is related to your camera lens. Their main function will be to collect light and direct it to the camera's sensor. The aperture of a lens is the diameter of the lens opening and is usually controlled by an iris.The larger the diameter of the aperture, the more light reaches the image sensor. Aperture is expressed as "F-stop", for example F2.8 or f/2.8. The smaller the F-stop number (or f/value) the larger the lens opening (aperture). This means that when you're using aperture priority or large aperture values (a smaller f/value) your image sensor (ccd or cmos) will tend to receive more light or slightly overexpose itself. Most simple digital cameras, the point and shot ones, have a fixed aperture, the lens are fixed and that's set to a so believed "optimum" range in order to produce best pictures when using automatic settings. SLR or semi SLR digital camera's woun't achieve best performances when using them on automatic settings, they aren't designed in the same way as the simple camera's. These camera's will tend to either overexpose, or have lighting/colour problems or achieve blurry images when using automatic settings. Any SLR or semi SLR camera user will be required to understand the way photography (electronic photography) works in order to achieve the best performances with it's camera. For your example, I guess the shots have a blue tint on them when you're using natural sun light in your photos, or in room pictures are illuminated by natural sun light. This is the first sign of overexpure, and the best way to reduce it and it's efects is to manually set the aperture range. Note that higher values will reduce the light that passes to the sensor, so you will want to experiment a little with those in order to achieve the best performance. When you take photos in light environments, bright sunny days or in rooms that contain many white surfaces or walls (these reflect the light pretty much and can overexpose the camera even if it doesn't look that bright when you look at them with your own eyes) you may want to use larger aperture value in order to have little light come to the sensor. Look for the highest values in aperture (in your menu) for example F8 or F16. If the pictures come out to dark or miss some details, you may want to use larger apertures (smaller numbers). Try these tests in order to check if your camera's problem can be solved this way. If not please reply back and we will look on the hardware - firmware side of the problem. Regarding aperture a quick recap :) A large aperture allows more light to reach the sensor. It's good when taking portret pictures and also achieves that nice blurry background surrounding your main subject in the picture. It's defined by smaller numbers (for example F1.8 or F1.2 or smaller). A small aperture allows little light to reach the sensor. It's good to take pictures in bright sun light. It's defined by larger numers (for example F16 or F22 or larger). Hope this helps, Bogdan.
