Question about Fuji FinePix S5100 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Power/Mode Dial and Shutter Button

Although it will turn, the Power/Mode dial is very stiff and the shutter button has frozen...I can't depress it. When the camera is turned on the lens will only advance partway out of the barrel. Also, the zoom rocker control is not functioning.

Have changed the batteries without success. Just returned from a very humid climate, where camera was working fine and I did not detect any condensation on lens at any time. The camera has not been dropped or bumped.

    I have not had an opportunity to try this yet but if icleaning up the contact works tor the shutter button will it also likely fix the problems with the zoom rocker control and the lens? Are these functions inter-dependent?

Probably humid penetrated inside the camera and caused the problem.

    The shutter button contact has probably suffered from wet conditions, and must have some oxide on top of contacts.
    Probably you can fix the shutter button spraying circuit cleaning solution on top of it, to do the job in the proper way you should access the inside of the button panel and spry solution on top of the contacts, spraying from outside won't have any effect as button is supposed to be waterproof to a certain extent

    If there is a contact in the button it can affect more functions, I don't have the exact diagram of the button panel, but a short of any kind in the buttons can cause more than one problem at the same time.

How do I change the aperture when my camera is in manual mode


You have to hold down the exposure compensation button at the same time as turning the control dial.
The values appear on the control panel screen.

I found this on page 33 of the manual...
Set the mode dial to M and turn the control dial to set the value.
• To set the shutter speed: Turn the control dial.
To set the aperture value:Turn the control dial while holding down the
[+-](exposure compensation) button.

The exposure level indicator appears on the control panel screen, showing the difference (ranging from -3 EV to +3 EV) between the exposure value calculated by the currently selected aperture
and shutter speed compared to the exposure value considered optimum by the camera.

How do I turn on the Rear Command Dial in my Nikon D80 Digital Camera?


That depends on what you want the command dial to do. If you're in either the Manual (M) or Shutter Priority (S) modes, the command dial will change the shutter speed. If you're in the Program (P) mode, the command dial will shift the program exposure. If you're in any other exposure mode, the command dial does nothing.

If you hold down the metering mode button, the command dial will change the exposure metering mode.
If you hold down the exposure compensation button, the command dial will change the amount of the exposure compensation.

If you hold down the release mode button, the command dial will change the release mode.

If you hold down the AF button, the command dial will change the autofocus mode.

If you hold down the QUAL button, the command dial will change the image storage mode.

If you hold down the ISO button, the command dial will change the ISO.

If you hold down the WB button, the command dial will change the white balance setting.

If you're looking at the menus, the command dial will navigate the menu.

If you're reviewing pictures, the command dial will move to the previous or next picture.

Hope this helps. If you still have problems or other questions about this, please don't hesitate to reply to this post.

In manual mode cannot set shutter speed to


The "--" is the equivalent of the bulb setting with the remote control. The first press of the button opens the shutter and starts the exposure. Another press of the button closes the shutter and ends the exposure. This is so you don't have to hold the button down and risk a bird flying through the beam (and to conserve battery power).

How can I change the exposures, or f-stops on the Nikon N75 35mm camera?


That depends on the exposure mode. In the point&shoot modes the camera sets the exposure.

In P you can turn the command dial to change the exposure.

In S you turn the command dial to set the shutter speed, the camera changes the aperture to suit.

In A you turn the command dial to set the aperture, the camera changes the shutter speed to suit.

In M you turn the command dial to set the shutter speed, you hold down the aperture button and turn the command dial to set the aperture.


If you don't have a manual, get one from http://www.butkus.org/chinon/nikon.htm

I have a Nikon D40, and when I set the mode dial to Close up the shutter button won't always depress.


It's because you are to close to the subject. You can back off or set your lens to manual and the shutter will release whether or not it is in focus.

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.

Slow shutter speed


from the manual: Using Shutter-Priority Mode 1. Set the mode dial to S (shutter-priority) and a yellow arrowhead on the screen points to the current shutter speed. Press the jog dial and the current shutter speed turns yellow. 2. With the current shutter speed displayed in yellow, rotate the jog dial to select the speed you want to use. 3. Take the picture. If a workable aperture isn?t available for the shutter speed you?ve selected, the shutter speed indicator on the screen flashes when you press the shutter button halfway down. You can use the setting as is, or press the jog dial down to select the shutter speed again and rotate it to select a new shutter speed.

Why doesn't the shutter button on my EasyShare digital camera work?


The cause and solution may include one of the following: The camera is not turned on. Turn on the camera. The camera is processing a picture; the camera Power ring light (on the Mode dial) blinks green. Wait until the light stops blinking before taking another picture. The card or internal memory is full. Transfer pictures to the computer, delete pictures from the camera, switch storage locations, or insert a memory card with available memory. The shutter button was not pressed. Depress the shutter button completely down. There was a failure in the focus and/or exposure. Press the shutter button halfway to set the Auto Focus (AF) and Auto Exposure (AE). When the AF/AE indicator turns green, press the shutter button completely down. The battery is exhausted. Replace or recharge the battery
