How do I change the aperture when my camera is in manual mode


You have to hold down the exposure compensation button at the same time as turning the control dial.
The values appear on the control panel screen.

I found this on page 33 of the manual...
Set the mode dial to M and turn the control dial to set the value.
• To set the shutter speed: Turn the control dial.
To set the aperture value:Turn the control dial while holding down the
[+-](exposure compensation) button.

The exposure level indicator appears on the control panel screen, showing the difference (ranging from -3 EV to +3 EV) between the exposure value calculated by the currently selected aperture
and shutter speed compared to the exposure value considered optimum by the camera.

How do you set the aperture and shutter speed independently


First, make sure you're in the manual exposure mode, not manual focus mode, as set by turning the mode dial to the "M" position.
In manual exposure mode, turning the main command dial should change the aperture, while turning the subcommand dial should change the shutter speed.
If the two command dials don't have the expected effect, reply to this post and we can troubleshoot further.

I have a Nikon D3100 and surprisingly the dial mode does not work properly. I mean when I turn it, at some modes, it shows the selected mode correctly on the display, but not for all


Hello mehran_vafae, is supposed to have put a DX lens.
The mode dial, select in what way is going to take a picture.
You can make combinations according to the mode set in the mode dial, with the Fn key / command dial, command dial / aperture A mode, command dial / shutter speed S mode, Full Auto / + / - compensation sw, etc. ..
Please carefully read the user manual supplied with your camera and if it fails take them to Nikon service.

just press "user preset" "original size A3" and "3" simultaneously to enter service mode and the display will be "F1"

to reset the p/m, you should change the value of F7-c22 and F7-c26

go to F7 mode(press 7 to move to F7, then press start)
press "2" "2", then start
press "0" to reset the value of F7-c22, then press start
now press "2" "6", then start
press "120000" to reset the value of F7-c26 (this counter is countdown so it starts with highest count)
press start
press stop to exit F7 mode
press "user preset" and "stop" simultaneously to exit service mode

that's it

My Nikon 17-35 F2.8 zoom won't Auto focus or show F stop


The F/stop isn't supposed to change when you focus. Depending on the camera, you change the f/stop by either turning the aperture ring on the lens or turning a command dial on the camera body.

How can I turn down the power on the FL50 to get more flashes. Can you turn down the power on the camera E510 with hte FL50 attatched?


the user manual is here http://www.olympus.co.jp/en/support/imsg/digicamera/download/manual/accessories/man_fl50_e.pdf
Have a look at page 46 TTL Auto mode - you can adjust the variable between power setting - + or - 3 stops Page 48 gives full details on adjusting this setting
Light intensity adjustment
  • The flash light intensity can be adjusted between +3 and –3.
  • The light intensity adjustment must be set to ON in the custom setup operation (page 61). • The indicator appears in the control panel.
  1. Turn dial B to select a light intensity adjustment value in the following steps. (This selection is also possible with dial A.)
  • 0 → +0.3 → +0.7→ +1.0 ... +3.0
  • 0 → –0.3 → –0.7→ –1.0 ... –3.0
  1. The display shows the light intensity adjustment value except when the value is 0, in which case the display does not show the light control range.
  2. If the camera’s flash adjustment mode is selected, the actual flash light intensity will be the total of the light intensity adjustment value set on the FL-50 and that set on the camera. The light intensity adjustment value displayed is that of the FL-50 only.

I BOUGHT A PENTAX K10D THAT CAME WITH A VERY NICE AUTO ZOOM LENS. I OWN SEVERAL OLDER PENTAX LENSES THAT I USED ON MY K1000 CAMERA AND I WANT TO USE THEM ON THE K10D. I CANNOT FIGURE OUT THE SETTINGS THAT...


Hello,

I don't own a K10D, but I do own a K100D which I have successfully used both manual focus & auto-focus lenses from my old Pentax stash!

1) If it is a manual focus lens, you need to turn off Autofocus on the body of your K10D. On my K100D, there is a switch on the side of the lens mount that says [-MF or -AF]. "-MF" is manual focus mode & "-AF" is autofocus mode. Since your lens doesn't have autofocus capability, turn it to the "-MF" mode.

Also . . . When I press "Menu" and go to "Custom Setting", I change two settings . . .

1) I change "Using aperture ring" to "Permitted". This allows you to use manual lenses (M lenses) that do not have an auto(exposure) setting, and also lets you use Auto lenses (A, KA, KA2, FA, etc.) in either the Auto or manual aperture setting modes.

2) I change "Fl with S lens used" so that even with a manual focus lens, although I don't have autofocus capability, my K100D beeps and shows a little red square in the viewfinder when I have successfully focused manually!

The K10D should have the same options.

This should get you up and running!

I have had a load of fun with my old lens on my new digital Pentax!

Take care & Happy Imaging!
Glen

Pentax K10D won't work with lens from Pentax K100 (film0


The lenses are probably manual focus lenses,  
  1. Make sure that the apature ring is set to 'A' or automatic, 
  2. if these are manual focus lenses then switch the focus switch on the left side of the camera body to MF 
  3. If this still doesn't work, or you are having trouble with the apature ring then press the menu button to go to the  menu then press the right arrow key untill you are in the  Custom Settings, scroll through the custom settings with the up and down arrow keys until about the 2nd from bottom there is an option called "using aperture ring" set this to 2 (Permitted) This will make the camera take a image when lens is on any f-stop manually. 
Try this and everything should work fine. If all this hasn't worked then try seting the mode dial on the camera to M manual mode. Cheers
