SOURCE: aperture priority only in manual mode?

Yes. You pick the apature (the 3000 keeps it aorund the setting you pick) and then it automaticly adjusts the speed for you.

SOURCE: Canon Rebel XT I can't change aperture or shutter speed in manual mode

You may try this. Reset all in the menu setup.
What you will be doing to to reset all the settings back to factory settings. Then you will want to go through the settings and reset them the way you prefer.

SOURCE: Canon 75-300mm Won't Autofocus

Just to clarify, this is a Canon 75-300mm lens, and not another make?

f00 is the same thing you get when no lens is attached to the camera - take it off, switch on and you'll see the same error.

It sounds like either the lens or the camera is faulty - do you have another lens and/or camera to test? If you have another lens and it works, I'd say the 75-300 is faulty. If the other lens is also faulty, I'd say the camera is bad so try to test the lenses on another (you could take it into a camera shop and they could try it on one of their cameras).

One possible thing to check is that all the contacts are clean on the lens and camera, no dust or dirt anywhere.

Take the camera back to basics, put it in fully auto mode, with just the lens on and see if it acts any differently.

Hope this helps you

I cannot change my aperture priority mode in manual when I try, I get "L"

In aperture mode TA, you only can change the aperture manualy. The camera will try to set everything else, like shutter speed and ISO, according to what the camera thinks is the best. Will look at the scene and focal length. The amount of light should be enough according to you ISO setting.
In manual, M you have to do everything yourself. You can get under or over exposed pictures. When you choose "wrong" settings. But what is wrong? You decide what part of the photo has to be correct, even when the rest is to dark or to light. It could be you did setup the camera to warn you when over or under exposure occurs. I'm not that familiar with the canon DSLRs to be 100% sure, but I would look there.
again, aperture mode is not a manual mode and the camera needs enough light so it can manoeuvre in the settings you made.

Why does my canon eos rebel t3 not take a picture when the shutter button is depressed but tje red eye reduction button keeps flashing and the video still works?

Usually, it means that the timer function has been turned on, and the camera is going through a countdown to trigger the shutter.

After that, it means that something else is not working correctly. If video works and records, then you know that the sensor and memory are functioning correctly. At that point, check to see whether your camera and lens are set for the form of autofocus or manual focus you want and that the aperture is still functioning correctly.

At some point, switch the camera to an all manual settings mode and try the shutter switch. If it still does not take a picture, the switch may have a problem.

Why does my brand new Canon 6D freeze when shooting in RAW

The question in the title and the first sentence imply to me that you have confused manual mode and RAW format.

Title: "Why does my brand new Canon 6D freeze when shooting in RAWD freeze when shooting in RAW"

First sentence: "My brand new Canon 6D freezes when I try to shoot in manual."

Manual mode means you are responsible for all of the settings related to exposure (aperture, ISO, and shutterspeed). RAW is a specific file format to save the photo. They are independent of each other.

My guess is that in manual mode you have the shutterspeed set to the maximum of 30 seconds. The camera isn't going to automatically adjust it for you in manual mode. If you're new to DSLRs, start with Ae (Aperture priority) or Tv (Shutter priority). In Ae mode, you control the aperture and the camera will select the shutterspeed. In Tv mode, you select the shutterspeed and the camera selects the aperture for you. Start off with Auto ISO. This will help you learn what combinations of settings work well together.

My manual setting is not working. Everytime I try to take a picture using manual mode without flash its dark.

Just to make sure, you are setting the proper exposure? In manual mode you have to set both the aperture and shutter speed yourself. If you don't set them properly then you'll get under- or over-exposed pictures.

I'm having trouble trying to change the aperture on Manual mode

Use the wheel next to the on/off switch. It should be at normal position for your right thumb. Make sure the On switch is all the way up to the line, past the first on-setting. This enables the wheel.

I have a canon rebel T3 . How do I change the aperture ?

On right hand top of the camera there is a Mode dial. Move the dial to Av (aperture priority) then rotate the wheel in front of this dial to set the F stop. The shutter speed will automatically adjust by the light meter.

Hello, I just brought my sigma macro 105mm lens and Im having trouble getting it to work probably on my nikon d90, they only way I can get it to work is turn the aperture on the lens to f32 I cant change...

Turn the aperture ring to f/32 and leave it there. After that, forget the lens has an aperture ring at all. You can let the camera control the aperture in any mode except the M and A modes. In the M and A modes, you control the aperture by turning the command dial on the front of the camera, the same way you control the aperture on a lens without an aperture ring.
