Well you can get the Canon Battery Grip For EOS-40D/30D/20D Model# BG-E2N, which has a separate set of controls including the wheel. OEM is about $170 Chinese clones $80. The camera body will probably sell for about $200 as is on eBay.

Shutter speed


Like most point&shoot cameras, the A3100 does not give you direct control over the shutter speed. You're expected to just point the camera and shoot, without worrying about such niggling details.

You can gain some control over the shutter speed by changing the scene mode. For example, portrait mode attempts to reduce the depth of field by opening the aperture, which results in a faster shutter speed. Conversely, landscape mode attempts to increase the depth of field by closing the aperture, which results in a slower shutter speed.

After 10 seconds running my horizon fitness (quantum ii) , it stop suddently with the E1 code error, what can 1 do to fix-it


Hello,

The E1 error code is the reed switch signal is not making it to the motor controler. Or that the controler is bad.

Unplug the treadmill and hook it back up, remove the motor hood and check the motor controler for a red light, it should remian lit without flashing, showing the unit has power. When you press the speed buttons, the light should start flashing, then the drive motor should start driving the walk belt. Watch the red light to see if it stops flashing when the belt stops. It should. Does the treadmill read speed and distance before it quits? If so, it most likley is a heavy draw on the drive motor causing too much restistance, which shuts the controler down.

Hope this helps.

What does the shutter speed set on?


To set the shutter speed, press and hold the mode button and then turn the thumb wheel on the right until M (for fully manual control) or S (for shutter priority auto exposure) appears in the display. Remove your finger from the mode button and the thumb wheel will now adjust just the shutter speed. If you're in manual mode the aperture setting will need a separate adjustment for correct exposure, if you're in shutter priority mode the camera will select the aperture suited to your shutter speed for each exposure.

Please take a moment to rate my answer, or if you wish to know anything else please add a follow-up comment and I shall provide further assistance when I'm next online (I'm in the UK and it's just after midnight right now).

I can't change the aperture setting or time value in all (tv, av, M) modes - turning the wheel only changes the exposure compensation (-2 to 2) scale. Nothing else changes. I've read the manual a million...


Hello,

Try this.

Turn the command dial on the top of the camera to [AV]
Use the [main dial] next to the shutter button to adjust the aperture.

The rear button that is round that is marked 'Av +/-' is the shift button. This controls the exposure compensation.

Could you be turning the wrong wheel?

Hope this helps.

How do you use a remote shutter release for a canon d 50 slr , and where do you find the timer on same camera?


You need a remote shutter release button attached either via a cable, or wirelessly. Canon make several models, as do many third parties.

As for self timer, press the AF-Drive Button then use the select wheel to move from single shot to high speed, slow speed or self-timer modes.

I have a canon rebel xsi, with a 75-300mm zoom lens. And I'm taking lousy sports pics, indoors and out. Help!!!


For sports (or any fast moving occasion) you must be very particular about your settings. The Rebel Xsi takes great shots, but some tweaking needs to be done on your end, to make sure you don't get the "blur" and low quality that you may be experiencing.

On the settings dial, turn the mode wheel to "Tv". This is shutter priority, meaning you are controlling how fast the "shutter" closes. You need to have it set higher because you are trying to "freeze" a fast moving object.

After setting the selector to "Tv", you can change the speed by moving the "control wheel" left and right. (It's located above the ISO button, below the shutter button". If you look at your LCD screen while turning the wheel to the right (it makes a clicky sound), you will see the speed increase.

By default, it is set at 1/125th of a second. Increase it (1/200th of a second for example) and try that setting. You should freeze your target without blur.

If you are indoors and need a flash, the speed will max out at 1/200th of a second. Of course, if you need the flash, you will manually have to pop it up yourself by pressing the flash button when in "Tv" mode. It has a "lightning bolt" and is located near the "EOS" sticker on the front.

Hopefully this helps you. Let me know!
