Question about Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera

1 Answer

My Canon XTI does not let me change aperture any more. No matter where I dial to, it stops at the lowest aperture (highest F stop) and would not change any more. Does any one know what could go wrong? I changed quite a few lenses and the result is the same.

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.

Quantaray lense wont work on nikon D50


David -

The lowest setting is the highest number; f22 is lower than f4. It's little counter-intuitive, but the lowest setting means the least amount of light - or the smallest aperture opening - not the numerical "f" value of the opening.

Simply twist the aperture ring until the highest value "f" number is selected. Many lenses have a small tab or latch to lock them in this position - if yours does, you can use it to prevent this from happening again. You would use a command dial on most camera bodies to electronically change the aperture opening.

Good luck!

Whenever I touch the operating button to meter, the "under-range LED" will not stop blinking. No shutter speeds illuminate, not even the one I have the shutter set to. The only LED's that...


Be sure your mode dial is not in the auto position. If it is, the camera will only function with the lense also locked to the auto position, which will either be the lowest aperture (highest number) or sometimes an "A" setting separate from the normal aperture settings. That's generally what this type of indication means on program/manual models - that you're trying to use manual settings, when the camera is set up for auto program exposure.

I'm having problems with the settings on my Canon EOS 400D. When I take pictures in AV mode I can get quality pictures but in TV or M modes the pictures always come out so dark even when taking them...


You need to understand the relationship and teractivity of aperture, shutter speed and iso. In Av mod, you choose the aperture and the camera makes thw shutter speed agjustment, In Tv mode, you set the shutter speed and the camera makes the aperture adjustment, In manual, you have to set both shutter speed and aperture manually. If the ISO mode is set to AUTO, the camera chooses the sensors sensitivity to light automatically. Change to specific ISO
(200-400 for daylight and 799-1600 for night). Take a picture in AV mode and note what shutter speed the camera chose. Then switch to TC mode choose the same shutter speed and see if camera chose the same aperture(f-stop) you chose in first shot. Change to Manual and choose same f-stop and shutter speed the camera chose for you in the other modes. Compare all three photos. They should be almost if not exactly the same exposure wise.
In Tv mode choose a dlowers shutter speed, In Manual choose a combo of slower shuuter and wider f-stop(smaller number). Read your manual.

How do I change the f stops on a Canon powershot sx100


Hi,

Set the mode dial on the top to Av.
Use the control dial on the back to change the aperture value.
This is shown at the bottom center of the LCD.
Shoot.

Set the mode dial to auto or whatever when you have finished.

Hope this helps.

What does FEE mean?


Typically that message it to let you know the lens is not communicating with the camera. The aperture ring on the lens needs to be set to the highest f-stop number, i.e. f-16, 22, 32. The dial on the camera allows you to control your aperture setting rather than the phyical ring on the lens.

I can't change the aperture in manual mode


well yes you can.....
I am looking into my XTi right now and when in M press the shutter part way and there will ppear the suedo light meter. the thumbwheel in front of the shutter moves the arrow and then you look to the left and see the F-stop... it is a bit odd because if you scroll the wheel to the left the arrow will move right... took some getting used to..

Canon Powershot S5IS Aperture


Hey Kate
I have owned a Canon Powershot S5 since launch last year and I take a lot of photos with blurred background. I select AV on the dial (Aperture priority) and set aperture to between 2.7 and about 4.0 max, depending on how much depth of field I want and what my subject is.

This setting blurs the background beautifully.. Just remember that an aperture of 2.7 will give you a very shallow depth-of-field, so if focus on face is important, make sure you have face recognition set to ON.

I hope this helps

Manual exposure trouble in studio


exposure compensation can be dialed through the '+' and '-' keys in the upper right hand side of the camera body. The shutter speed should alone take care of the exposure meter if the aperture is more or less good...

ps: sometimes when we increase the shutter speed to 1/2000 th of a sec..it takes a while to reach the zero mark in the exposure bar since you need to dial more to reach an acceptable shutter speed like say 1/10th ...or 1"...

Regards,
Gaurav
