Re: users manuel

On the front right, near the bottom of the lens, there is a little switch with AF and M on it. Make sure it's switched to AF. M stands for manual and AF is Auto Focus. Then, on the top, there is a dial with pictures, the letters M A S P, and a picture of a camera with the word AUTO above it. Move it around until AUTO is pointing to the black mark next to it. You should hear it click into place. Once you've done all that, turn it on and your nikon should be on full auto mode. Have fun taking pictures, I hope this helped!

Where do you insert a sim card into a minolta maxxum 5 camera

Cameras, especially film cameras, do not use "SIM" cards. There were some models of Minolta film cameras that used exposure cards for auto-settings but only cellular phones and devices with cellular interfaces (iPads) use SIM cards. Here's a copy of the Maxxum 5 manual if that helps.

What does the shutter speed set on?

To set the shutter speed, press and hold the mode button and then turn the thumb wheel on the right until M (for fully manual control) or S (for shutter priority auto exposure) appears in the display. Remove your finger from the mode button and the thumb wheel will now adjust just the shutter speed. If you're in manual mode the aperture setting will need a separate adjustment for correct exposure, if you're in shutter priority mode the camera will select the aperture suited to your shutter speed for each exposure.

Please take a moment to rate my answer, or if you wish to know anything else please add a follow-up comment and I shall provide further assistance when I'm next online (I'm in the UK and it's just after midnight right now).

Hoe do i set different speeds

In S and M modes you control the shutter speed directly by turning the command dial on the back of the camera. In A mode the dial controls the aperture which indirectly affects the shutter speed. In P mode the dial shifts the exposure to another equivalent exposure, which also changes the shutter speed.

How to KNOW the light is right 4 an Olympus OM20 Manual camera?

OM-20 was basically a upgraded OM-10 with the manual adapter built in and a number of other refinements.

The viewfinder has LED's to show the shutter speed recommended by the camera's lightmeter for the ISO and aperture selected. It also has an exposure compensation indicator (the +/- symbol) and an indicator for flash ready which doubles up as a post-exposure flash confirmation. There is also the indicator lamp to show manual mode has been selected. OM-10 lacks the manual mode lamp and the +/- indicator.

Like the OM-10, the OM-20 is primarily an aperture priority automatic camera. In this mode you set the ISO film speed, choose which aperture you wish to use (with the ability to use the lens depth of field preview button) and then the camera selects the correct shutter speed. The +/- exposure compensation control allows the user to tell the camera to modify the recommended shutter speed by up to two stops either way.

In manual mode, there is no manual metering. The light meter behaves exactly as it does in aperture priority mode and the viewfinder shows the recommended shutter speed and not the manually selected one. Correct metering is therefore a case of adjusting the aperture first, and then choosing the correct shutter speed indicated in the viewfinder. If the user then decides to select a different shutter speed, then the aperture ring must be adjusted to maintain the correct exposure. For example the aperture is set to f8 and the camera recommends 1/60th of a second. The user decides that a faster shutter speed is required and chooses 1/250th, but the viewfinder remains showing 1/60th. In order to keep the same exposure value the user must open the aperture by two full stops to f4. The camera's light meter will detect the new aperture setting and providing the light on the object is unchanged the viewfinder shutter speed display should now show 1/250th as well to confirm the correct adjustment. Alternatively, the user can choose the shutter speed first by looking at what has been set on the control ring (or by turning the ring to the end of its travel and then counting the clicks from there as all experienced OM users do) and then turning the aperture ring until the shutter speed shown in the viewfinder matches what's been manually set.

It all sounds clumsy and complex but is done far more quickly than I've taken to type this and becomes second nature.

Aperture priority metering is selected on the camera by choosing AUTO on the mode selecter. In this mode the shutter speed ring has no effect and the viewfinder always displays the automatically selected shutter speed.

No image on LCD monitor

It sounds like your camera has the review time setting set to a short value like 1 second. Look in your user manual for Review Time and then follow the steps to change the review time setting on your camera. If this doesn't solve your problem, it would help to know:

1) Do you have your user manual?
2) What do you have the Review Time set for?
3) If you go to playback mode can you see the picture for a longer time?

Since you didn't mention anything about shooting in manual settings I'm going to guess you have been and the camera work there in shutter or aperture mode, so make sure you set your lens's F-stop back to the auto position - check the dot on the lens ring with the f-stop numbers (usually in red) like the f-22 make sure they are aligned when in auto so when the camera needs more light and the lens can fully open to give it the light it is asking for, then it will shoot otherwise it won't. Does that make sense.

F65 shutter speed question

The lens must be set to F/22 on that model so the camer can set the aperture. Setting it to 22 tells the camera it is ready, so the camera can actually set the proper f/stop according to the light level. You can set the aperture yourself using the control knobs on the camera - in manual settings. In Aperture, or Shutter settings, you can set the aperture or shutter speed and the camera will set the right exposure. On Program, the camera sets both aperture and shutter.

Try the camera in the full Auto mode to see if it is working correctly. Also check to see that there is no compensation set in the exposure settings for both apature and speed.

Check in the instruction manual to see how to get in to these settings from the user menus.

If this does not work, the camera will need to be serviced for a fault condition.
