The camera needs to be set in the 'S' mode. On the 'P' setting, speed and aperture will change with light levels. 'S' is for shutter priority.

In manual mode you should be able to change the shutter speed simply by turning the main dial (the thumbwheel located near the shutter release button).

Aperture remains fully open, cannot adjust


If its just how to change the settings on your camera then your manual will tell you how. If you mean how changing these settings effects the final outcome of your photograph then I can recommend Langfords Starting Photography book which will explain all you need to know regarding these.
Its best to keep your ISO as low as possible in order to avoid noise in your images, however night shoots need a higher ISO but a tripod is recommended to avoid picture shake.
Shutter speed determines how long the camera shutter stays open letting let in. Shutter speed is often shown as 1/125 or 1/15 for example and what this actually means is that the shutter will stay open to let light in for either 125th or 15th of a second. By changing how shutter speed is set alters the final outcome of your image. Let's say you wanted to take a photo of a waterfall and you wanted to freeze the action so that you could see the waters movement clearly, then you would use a fast shutter speed such as 1/500 or higher. However, instead if you wanted the water to look blurred then you would use a slow shutter speed such as 1/15 or lower.
Aperture which is also known as f numbers are often shown as F2.8 or F8 for example, and these can affect depth of field. Depth of field determines just how much or how little of your final image remains in focus. By choosing a high f number like F8 or higher means that the majority of your final image will be in focus whereas, a low f number like F2.8 or lower makes the foreground stay in focus and the background will be blurred.
Hope this helps.....


thanks

Hi, I would like to take a timed exposer, maybe for as long as five minutes......Thanks


In manual exposure mode, set the shutter speed to bulb. This is the next slower shutter speed past thirty seconds. The bulb setting will keep the shutter open as long as you keep the shutter button pressed.

It's easier if you have a remote control. With the ML-L3 wireless remote, you can press the button once to open the shutter and again to close it. Most wired remotes have a lock so you can lock the shutter open until you want to close it.

The night setting results in blurry pictures


The grain is from underxexposure and the blur is from hand shake caused by low shutter speed. Try using a tripod. Also, change from auto settings and shoot in manual mode with a high ISO and low aperture setting. Good luck!

How do I set shutter speed to photograph without a flash


You can take the photograps at P mode while keeping the flash off. In this mode the camera will set the speed and the appature according to the available light. This may slow down the speed so make sure you keep the camera stable.

Nikon fm10 35mm SLR developed pictures turn out white


That sounds like your shutter isn't opening. take the lens of and set the shutter speed to B this should keep the shutter open as long as the release is pushed down. advance one frame and hold down the shutter release while looking at the opening where the lens should be. If the shutter opens you will hear it and see the back plane where the film would sit to be exposed. I expect your shutter won't open.

Good luck

Shutter Speed


If your shutter speeds are off you can compensate by changing the film speed setting,
quicker ( than should be ) shutter speeds require you to set the film speed to slower ASA .. KC

D 80, controling shutter speed


dear hydet

use 'Program Shift'. This will change the values for both aperture & exposure, but keep the overal exposure value correct. Eg if the standard values are 1/60th of a second at f5.6, then rotating the dial in one direction will change the parameters (first) to 1/30th & f8, etc, and turning it in the other direction will change them to 1/125th & f4.

oke, post in me back


thx

Manual Shutter Moves


That is exactly what happens if you turn off the LCD. It goes into AUTO EXPOSURE. The same thing happens if you are in SHUTTER PRIORITY MODE. APERTURE PRIORITY MODE keeps your setting when going to just the viewfinder. I guess they did this because there is no way to change your settings with the screen off. It would be nice be able to keep those settings for situations where the light is not going to change and you want to save the battery. On the other hand, in manual mode I like the confirmation screen to be sure that the light didn't change.
