Sounds like a severe underexposure. What does the histogram show? Try selecting a [much] slower shutter speed.

Alternatively, does the camera work properly in the other modes? If so, then switch back to manual and set the same shutter speed and aperture to see what happens then.

How do i take pictures in an aperture priority mode?


Turn the mode dial on the top of the camera to "A". Select the aperture by turning the command dial on the back of the camera, and the camera will set the shutter speed to suit.

How can i set aperture and shutter speed at P mode? i scroll the command dial but all that comes in is P and P*


Once you're in the P mode, turning the command dial will change the shutter speed and aperture in opposite directions to maintain the same exposure (within the limits of the camera and the lens). You should see the shutter speed in the viewfinder change.

If you want absolute control of the shutter speed, change to the S mode. The command dial will then allow you to control the shutter speed, and the camera will automatically change the aperture to compensate (again, within the limits of the lens).

How do I change the aperture on my N6006? And what do I change it to? I keep getting a fE E error message.


That depends on the exposure mode.

In any of the P modes, turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest aperture (largest aperture) and lock it. You control the exposure by turning the command dial on the camera.

In S mode, lock the aperture ring as above. Turning the command dial changes the shutter speed and the aperture changes to match.

In A mode, control the aperture by turning the aperture ring on the lens and the shutter speed with change to match.

In M mode, control the aperture by turning the aperture ring on the lens and control the shutter speed by turning the command dial.

If the lens doesn't have an aperture ring, you can only use the P and S modes.

Assistance in using the P for taking pictures How do you use the dials to determine a good picture.


The settings depend on what you're trying to say with the picture. You probably wouldn't want the same settings for a portrait as you would for a landscape. Two photographers at the same place and time with identical cameras probably wouldn't use the same settings, as each photographer has his/her personal style.
In the Program mode the camera select the shutter speed and aperture it deems optimal. You can turn the command dial to adjust the exposure, increasing the shutter speed and opening up the aperture, or decreasing the shutter speed and closing down the aperture by turning it the other way. Either way, the exposure itself remains the same.
If you're taking a landscape picture, you'd probably want a small aperture to get the maximum depth of field. If you're taking a portrait, you'd probably want a large aperture to blur the background. If you're taking an action picture, you'd probably want a fast shutter speed to capture the action. Of course, those are just guidelines. Sometimes you want to blur the action, or throw some portion of the picture out of focus. It's up to you. You use the settings to take YOUR picture.

Nikon D40X In Program mode (P*) I can not change settings. Nikon's video show it is possible to do this using the command dial. Any suggestions ?


Program: Puts the camera in charge of aperture and shutter speed, though all remaining camera settings are available. You can vary the combination of aperture and shutter speed the camera has selected by rotating the Command Dial.
from: http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/D40X/D40XMENUS.HTM
The camera takes care of the shutter and aperture settings, and you control the other stuff...(presumably white balance, focus points...etc.?). I hav ea D70 and using the thumb wheel, I can, on 'P' mode, set the aperture...but the shutter speed is always 'auto' as far as I can tell.
Best of luck!

How can I change the exposures, or f-stops on the Nikon N75 35mm camera?


That depends on the exposure mode. In the point&shoot modes the camera sets the exposure.

In P you can turn the command dial to change the exposure.

In S you turn the command dial to set the shutter speed, the camera changes the aperture to suit.

In A you turn the command dial to set the aperture, the camera changes the shutter speed to suit.

In M you turn the command dial to set the shutter speed, you hold down the aperture button and turn the command dial to set the aperture.


If you don't have a manual, get one from http://www.butkus.org/chinon/nikon.htm

Slow shutter speed


from the manual: Using Shutter-Priority Mode 1. Set the mode dial to S (shutter-priority) and a yellow arrowhead on the screen points to the current shutter speed. Press the jog dial and the current shutter speed turns yellow. 2. With the current shutter speed displayed in yellow, rotate the jog dial to select the speed you want to use. 3. Take the picture. If a workable aperture isn?t available for the shutter speed you?ve selected, the shutter speed indicator on the screen flashes when you press the shutter button halfway down. You can use the setting as is, or press the jog dial down to select the shutter speed again and rotate it to select a new shutter speed.
