Here's a great online user guide. It's for the D40 but the only difference is the D40x has more Megapixels.

Any local camera store should be able to help with classes or private instruction. You can also buy the Bleucrande instruction DVDs or others. Wiley books has several feild guide that are very good. Nikon has http://www.nikonusa.com/Learn-And-Explore/Photography-Techniques/index.page which is a good starting point

To change the "exposure compensation" it's saying


When you change the exposure compensation setting, the camera will change the aperture, the shutter speed, or the ISO depending on the mode you're in and the shooting situation. That's what "compensation" means.

1- How do you set ISO? 2- How do you set aperture and shutter manually? 3-How do yu open the blue "operating instructions" disk?


The ISO is set in the camera menu. You can't set the aperture and shutter manually...this is basically a point-and-shoot camera with some nice features. You should copy the disc to your computer and then open it from there by double-clicking on it.

Where do I go to get simple manual focus instructions for my fujifilm s1500? I am trying to work my way throughusing fstop and Iso and shutter speed, but I am not sure which numbers refer to what when I...


The numbers in the left side of the screen is shutterspeed and aperture number.
125 means the shutterspeed is 1/125 sek.
F is the aperturenumber. The higher F number, the smaller aperture opening, the higher depth-of-field.
You can see these number in S, A and M mode.
S is shutter priority: You choose the shutter speed and the camera chooses the correct aperture (within limits)
A is aperture priority: You choose the aperture and the camera chooses the correct aperture (still within limits)
M is manual mode: You have to choose both aperture and shutterspeed. The ruler is an indicator, that tells you when the exposure is correct. The pointer should be in the middle of the ruler.

Delay between pressing the shutter button and the camera firing. Canon40d


Not sure what you are really asking here as it would depend on the settings you have selected to use.

For instance if your ISO ) ASA film speed) is set to 64 and you have an aperture priority setting of say 6 then the shutter will go clllllllllickkkkk ( be slow say 1/30th of a second. As opposed to say ISO of 200 and an aperture of 16 the camera will go cliick now if you select ISO 400 and aperture of 16 the camera will clk This is the "sports type setting for fast moving objects ) I am presuming daylight average light for the above
after 4pm or in some shade areas shutter speed can also be delayed and the picture result is blurred due to camera shake at low speeds.
then u need a tripod

Now what have you selected as an amateur snapshot artist?
Day night settings
AUTO
ISO 100 + ........
portratit
landscape
night

Any of these settings on auto will also be delayed depending on ISO and the amount of ambiant light available to the camera. So you need to get to know your cameraq by practice

Some settings ( see manual) suggest using shutter priority to get good pics
Others suggest aperture priority.

It might be better for you to get a basic digital photography book to help you understand and compose good pics ( Digital photography for dummies ( or DP basics)


Hers a tip worth remembering with apertures

Smaller the number larger the hole(aperture)
Larger the number smaller the aperture

larger hole for lower light
smaller hole for very bright light

so experiment with aperture to be familiar on what to select for the degree of light then test different ISO speeds and keep notes.

When you use zoom increase the EV by 1+ and see what the difference is to standard distance

All great fun and learning and now cheaper because you dont have to pay for film or development to see what creative pics you have made!

So perhaps the camera does not have a problem, it just has you, and

you need to bond so Good Luck and ,many happy snappy hours of fun

E-500 lock-up


Shutter speed too low and aperture probably set at wide open [3].
You will find that after two minutes the shutter will respond but you will get a blurry picture.
This setting is rarely used but you only learn from playing with different settings.
Olympus instruction manual needs to be in a better language for the beginner to learn.

You need to read up or get lessons to learn manual photography. Search 'free beginners photography lessons' on Google and try to find a website which you like, as there are many with lot of great content. Essentially, you would need to learn and practice one manual feature at a time and slowly add more as you get comfortable with the earlier ones. Some of the main manual features are aperture, shutter speed, focus and metering. Start where you are comfortable. Regards Virdi
