How do i change the F stop on my camera, for example, i wish to move from F 5.6 to F16? i realise there is a dial but it doesn't seem to change the F stop via manual alteration, it just stays the same. the camera is a Nikon F80 film camera

    First, I assume you have the aperture ring on the lens, if it has one, is on the smallest aperture (largest f/number)? With the mode dial set to M, the aperture should change when you turn the command dial on the back--does it? Does the front dial change the shutter speed?

    What lens are you using? Do you have another lens you can try? If so, what happens with that one?

Evisu Minako watch not working out of the box


It may be fresh out of the box but how do you know how long it has been on the shelf or sitting in the box at the manufacturer? It probably just needs a battery.

I have a canon rebel T3 . How do I change the aperture ?


On right hand top of the camera there is a Mode dial. Move the dial to Av (aperture priority) then rotate the wheel in front of this dial to set the F stop. The shutter speed will automatically adjust by the light meter.

F16 showing on display


F16 measn a problem with your door lock.

The machine senses the door is open and will stop. The door lock isn't that expensive and should solve your problem. If that doesn't solve it then you may have a faulty control board.

Try the first choice. Good luck.

Have recently been given a Nextra by a friend. however, when switching the machine on it takes forever to work. example ... when i turn the dial to quick wash i have to keep turning the dial off & on...


The fault as seen is with the program timer controller and you might need to replace this unit. The rest of the washer seems to be in good shape and so your washing is perfect. So the timer does not move or contact into the program outputs with the movement.
Try to swap the unit before you invest in one so as to be fully confirmed. Make a note of the connections and double check before this is replaced.

When figuring exposure, how does the DMW-LT55 affect the f-stop? For example, I have reason to believe that the "Sunny 16" rule no longer applies with a DMW-LT55 in place. My camera is a Lumix...


That model is a 1.7x converter, not a 12x model.

Anyway, the aperture indicated will be decreased by 1.7x, although in automatic exposure modes thee camera will just realise that the light coming in has decreased by 1.7x and compensate for you.

When you rely on the sunny 16 rule it assumes that you are using f16 as a starting point. With the lens set to f16 and that converter in place, you are actually starting with an aperture 1.7 stops smaller. The f stop scale is not truly linear though, and does not take into account light transmittance losses as it passes through an increasingly complex optical path (look up t-stops to see what I'm on about).

As a rough rule of thumb, round up that 1.7 to 2 as it will be close enough, and when using Sunny 16 set the lens aperture to f8 when using that converter. The true aperture will then be a little less than f16. You could alternatively take advantage of the ability of digicams to pull detail back from overexposed areas and compensate by one stop instead, using f11 as your starting point. You then don't risk losing shadow detail and can use software to knock back the exposure level to recover highlight detail.

Internal Light Meter broken


Not worth the money, when I was in college, my professor told us of the rule of "f16"....the speed should be set at 1 over the ISO at f16 at bright noon. You can adjust the setting with one f stop per hour. If you are shooting at...let's say...ISO 400...then your setting would be "f16 at 1/500 of a second at noon." If you are shooting an ISO of 64, then it would be f16 at 1/60th of a second and so forth...hope this helps.

Krzr speed dial numbers


First, go to Menu. Then, number 4. Speed Dials. Then, if you wish to move your numbers around, simply click on a filled up speed dial slot you wish to change. It will take you to an Unassigned number, where you will click again. Then, there is an open spot where the name you just moved was. Find the name you want to be there, click, and scroll up to find the empty slot, then click.

Lock the aperture in F 22. This will get rid of FEE. Now control the aperture settings from the body ( control infront of shutter release )

Sony DSC W7 control dial defect


I had a similar problem with my EOS 5, was trying to change between modes and it made a lovely "snapping pencil" noise and then behaved as you describe. I managed to get it done under warranty after a lot of moaning and ****(it was 54 weeks old). After chatting to some camera shop owners it seemed to be the most common problem with the EOS 5 (doesn't happen often, just most common type of error). I could understand it if I was going from the program modes to the creative modes where you have to pass through the "lock" position, but I am sure that I wasn't. Anyway, upshot was that it got fixed, works fine now, but when changing modes I always depress the "lock" button, even if its not passing through the "lock" position. Sorry, but the quick fix is pay the $75 which doesnt seem unreasonable, or switch to a camera that doesnt use that type of switching method, EOS3, EOS1, EOS D3 :-). Hope this helps to answer your question
