The shutter speed is controlled by the width of the slit exposing the film. So, the lens will swing at the same speed when set at 1/500 or 1/60 (White setting), therefore it appears on the outside that the shutter speed has not changed. The swing has only 2 speeds, White fast, Yellow slow, selected by the switch on the left beside the rewind knob.

To confirm that the width of the slit is changing (actual shutter speed), open the back and fire the shutter on Yellow 2 (half second), you will see the slit is fully open as the lens swings. Next try Yellow 8, you will see the slit is less than half open, so it exposes the film for a shorter time by having a narrower slit , not faster swing.

This is the same principle in many cameras with curtain shutter.

I hope this answers your question.

    I just checked my answer here and found a word I used is repeatedly shown as slit Another way to describe the word would be: opening or gap.A whole genre of photography cannot be discussed here because the word slit is not allowed?

How to change the shutter speed on my nikon n65 film 35mm slr camera


In the manual and shutter-priority modes (set the dial to "M" or "S"), turn the command dial to change the shutter speed. In the aperture-priority mode (set the dial to "A"), turning the command dial changes the aperture and the camera will set the shutter speed appropriately.

If you need a manual, you may download a copy from here.

How can i set aperture and shutter speed at P mode? i scroll the command dial but all that comes in is P and P*


Once you're in the P mode, turning the command dial will change the shutter speed and aperture in opposite directions to maintain the same exposure (within the limits of the camera and the lens). You should see the shutter speed in the viewfinder change.

If you want absolute control of the shutter speed, change to the S mode. The command dial will then allow you to control the shutter speed, and the camera will automatically change the aperture to compensate (again, within the limits of the lens).

I am in the "s" mode for shutter speed priority and i cant change the shutter speed i use the scroll to get the arrow above the shutter speed on the view finder and from then i cant figure out how to...


Are you pressing the jog dial to save the setting? Here's what your book says:
  1. Turn the Mode dial to P, A, S, M, or C.
    The mode options are displayed.

  2. Use the jog dial:
    • Rotate the jog dial to move the cursor. autourg00230002id1608637.jpg
    • Press the jog dial to open a setting.
    • Rotate the jog dial to change the setting. autourg00230002id1608659.jpg
    • Press the jog dial to save the setting.
    NOTE: Available options are white. Unavailable options are grey. Red options are out of range and may cause unacceptable image/print quality. Adjust the value higher or lower until it turns yellow.

How do I adjust the shutter speed


Hello,

Set the mode dial on the top of the camera to Tv.
Use the control dial on the back to change the shutter speed.
The aperture value is shown on the screen at the bottom.
If it is shown in red the picture will not expose correctly.
Adjust the dial until the value is white.

I hope this helps.

How do I adjust the aperture on the Nikon D5000 DSLR camera?


It depends on the exposure mode.

In Program mode (P), turn the command dial and the camera will shift the exposure by changing both the aperture and the shutter speed.

In Aperture-priority mode (A), turn the command dial and the camera will adjust the shutter speed to suit.

In Manual mode (M), hold the aperture button and turn the command dial.

If you're using a lens with an aperture ring, turn it to its smallest aperture (largest f/number) and lock it.

Shutter speed won't go above 200


I have two possible solutions:

First, are you shooting with the flash up or an external flash connected to it? If so, the camera likely needs to synchronize at 1/200 or slower otherwise it won't be able to take a full photo. As a safety feature to prevent that, many new cameras just restrict the ability to pick a faster shutter speed.

Second, if its not related to the flash, it might be related to the mode you are using. Turn the camera off the automatic modes and put it on an all manual setting. Change the ISO to 400 or so, got outside and aim up at the day's sky, put it on manual mode and then adjust the shutter speed. Open up the aperture on your lens all the way (turn it to the smallest number). Now adjust the shutter speeds. It should be able to go past 200 now.

FOCUS OUT OF WACK...big problems


Hi
Change the mode to 'One Shot'. Press the AF-WB and turn the top dial to 'One Shot'.

2. Increase your depth of field. When shooting in Av try using f11. This should help with te out of focus people on the ends. Check your shutter speed as well. Good rule of thumb is to keep the shutter speed higher than the focal length of the lens. i.e. 100mm lens should have a shuter speed of 100+ for hand held shots. You may need to change the ISO speed to get the shutter speed in low light. Lternative is to use a tripod.

Hope this helps.

F-stop issues


See pages 36&37 of the manual.

If you haven't got one, you can download it here.

In M mode...

Turn the selector dial to adjust shutter speed.

Hold down the AV+/- button (top-right of rear screen) and turn selector dial to adjust aperture setting.

As for Av mode, this is perfectly normal that you cannot set the shutter speed. Av mode means that you decide on the aperture setting and the camera (not you!) decides on the correct shutter speed.

Hope this helps,

Matt.
