Aperture and Shutter Speed for the Nikon Coolpix s550

How do I adjust the number of the shutter speed/aperature of my camera? Is it under Scenes? Do i chose the modes? I actually want to use a certain speed or number.

I looked at page 100 and made the adjustment. Outside pictures are still too hot. Ideas?


check the properties of a recent picture.....check the shutter speed, aperture.....ISO.....use lower ISO and high aperture or change them according to the light conditions

I have a D60 and when using my new lighting kit if the aperture is faster than1/200 it creates a blackout across part of the image due to the mirror. Any solutions?


It's not the aperture, it's the shutter speed. It's also not the mirror, but the shutter.
The camera's fastest shutter sync speed is 1/200. You must use a shutter speed no faster than that. Due to the construction of the shutter, the frame is not fully exposed simultaneously at faster speeds and thus part of the image is blacked out.

Using a flash, the amount of light is controlled almost exclusively by the flash; the exposure is controlled by the aperture and the shutter speed is all but irrelevant.

How to adjest shutter speed of nikon p90


In the P, S, and M modes, turn the command dial on the back of the camera. In the A mode, turning the command dial changes the aperture and the camera will change the shutter speed to compensate.
In the point&shoot modes the camera will set the shutter speed on its own.

How do I adjust the aperture on the Nikon D5000 DSLR camera?


It depends on the exposure mode.

In Program mode (P), turn the command dial and the camera will shift the exposure by changing both the aperture and the shutter speed.

In Aperture-priority mode (A), turn the command dial and the camera will adjust the shutter speed to suit.

In Manual mode (M), hold the aperture button and turn the command dial.

If you're using a lens with an aperture ring, turn it to its smallest aperture (largest f/number) and lock it.

How can i slow the shutter speed on my Nikon Coolpix L100


technically you cant, the l100 is an all automatic camera, meaning you cant manually set the ISO, aperture, or shutter speed... a good way to slow the shutterspeed would be to autofocus on something similar but darker, then keep that focus for the origonal shot...

Can't get F3.5 aperture on the 18-135mm kit lense on d80


You may be shooting auto and there is too much light. If you want to be sure you are shooting with 18mm @ f3.5 then shoot with aperture priority (the shutter speed will adjust automatically). Ususally at a wide focal length you would want a small aperature (smaller f-stop) so this should not really be a problem.

Digiscope


Hey timpo,
I would definitely use some kind of remote release since even the smallest amount of camera shake (pressing the shutter button) can cause blurry images in high magnification images. At the type of magnifications usually involved in digiscopeing the depth of field of your images will be greatly reduced and you will need to set the camera to a smaller aperture than usual, which should result in slower shutter speeds. I would definitely have the camera set to manual exposure mode so you can control both the shutter and the aperture although aperture priority should also work well. I would not set the camera to a higher iso since you will lose quality, and since I am assuming you are using a tripod slow shutter speeds should not be an issue. Any movement by the subject will blur the subject if you are using slow shutter speeds so if this becomes an issue you can set the camera to a wider aperture at the loss of depth of field to achieve a faster shutter speed. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

The aperature error is due to the fact that the lens in not a constant aperature design. The settings on the LCD are assuming you are at full wide angle setting. As this lens moves towards telephoto, the aperature changes about 2/3 of an f-stop due to the mechanical movement of the lens elements. So a manual setting of f4.0 at full telephoto will be more llike f5.0 in reality. It is too bad Epson could not make the mechanical aperature adjust to compensate, but every nice feature costs something. I have not had any issue with the shutter speed changing. One guess is that the camera has shutter speed/aperature combinations that it can't achieve due to mechanical limitations, so it chooses the available combination. Another is that it wasn't in manual mode, but rather aperature priority mode and the final adjustments changed the speed.

Aperture Priority Mode - an undocumented feature


In addition to the "quirks" of the Landscape and Aperture Priority Modes (neither mode works as documented!)..... The camera also behaves differently in full Manual Mode (it changes the settings, whether you want it to or not to compensate for available light)... At lower Zoom Levels, the camera will adjust the Shutter Speed Only, to try and compensate for available light... For example: with the Camera preset to F5.6 Aperture, and 1/48 sec. shutter speed, the camera will adjust the shutter speed between a range of 1/30 to 1/291 sec, to try and "auto expose" the shot for lower or higher light levels, even though you're in manual mode. At an Aperture Setting of 2.8 and 1/48 of a second, the number of internal steps in shutter speed the camera is willing to take, increases dramatially - for example: shutter speeds up to 1/600 of a second, even though you have the shutter set to 1/48 in manual mode. The camera WILL NOT attempt to adjust the Aperture to compensate for proper exposure in available light (OR WILL IT??).... It depends on your Zoom settings! It won't if your're near to full wide angle, but IT WILL if you are using the Zoom. Once you cross some unknown zoom threshold (it doesn't have to be at full zoom), then the camera begins to change both the Aperture and Shutter speed to compensate for available light, even though you are in "Full Manual", versus Auto Exposure Mode. In Manual Mode, (as in Aperture Priority Mode), the amount of change the camera is willing to make to your settings, appears to be related to a preset number of internal steps, with the number of steps dependent on both Aperture and Zoom Settings, before it gives an EV Warning for Over or Under Exposure conditions.... The type (shutter speed only for wide angle, shutter and aperture for zoom) and amount (number of internal "steps" it takes to increase/decrease shutter speed and increase or decrease aperture), is dependent on the amount of zoom you are using for the current shot.

Shutter priority mode?


s I understand it from what I have seen on the Web, the 3000Z can operate in several modes: 1. Fully automatic (camera select both 2. Manual (user sets both aperture and shutter speed). 3. Aperture Priority mode - user sets aperture and camera chooses correct shutter speed to get a good exposure Apparently there is no Shutter Priority mode (user cannot set only the shutter er speed and allow the camera to set the aperature to get a good exposure). This option is available on the Epson 850Z camera and this seems like a silly ommision to make on a "high-end" camera like the 3000Z.
