Your sentence is not making much sense.
Turn the dial in manual to change the shutter speed
Hold the AV button and turn the dial to change the aperture
You can then press the exposure button (*) to see if your settings are too dark or light before you take the shot.

Is this what you want?

I have a Canon PowerShot SX 10 IS. In Manual mode shows only black screen with icons. In Auto mode everything is fine.


Dear Olia,
Just a quick check on your camera. You have a focus issue so check the settings for the ISO - increase the value, eg. 800 or above and reduce the shutter speed. You can do that by the quick access dial (wheel) facing you. There are four direct access menus in a criss-cross direction. One is assigned to shooting mode - single, multi, timed etc. The other direction will have macro, standard, telephoto etc. the 3rd direction will (towards right) will take you to the ISO settings and the last will take you to the shutter speed settings.

you manipulate the ISO and shutter speed and see your screen will brighten up and the subject will be clear. Refer to the picture attached.

How do I get my canon 6d to focus when using my canon zoom lens ef100-400


When you put your camera to M with the main dial, it should not have any effect on the focusing. With M you only can choose your Aperture, Shutter speed and ISO manual. With P, the camera will choose a setting it thinks is the best, but you are allowed to change it like another speed or Aperture setting. The camera will try to compensate with ISO, when you are out of the normal limits.
Just when you put the AF / MF switch on the body, or on the lens to M. the lens hast to be focused by hand.

When I put the canon D70 in the manual shooting mode, i cannot change the dials like previous


Make sure there isn't a dial lock feature engaged. In some models, you can lock out the dials to prevent accidental changes while shooting.

Evening My Canon 400D Eos SLR will not take photos in manual mode setting , goes through the motions of shutter open and close but when it comes to viewing the picture on the lcd display ( nothing there)....


Okay lets put some "joy" back into your photo's The reason you aren't getting anything is because your shutter speed is to fast. Your setting I think you are trying to say are F5.6 100 ISO and 1/100 shutter speed "M" manual setting. Actually if you looked closely on your "nothing there" there would be something. Anyway, Moon shots as simple as they look are anything but simple. The earth is moving and you are trying to take a still shot. I don't know where you are on this earth and every star system is different. Starting with a good solid tripod, next the lens needs to have a great enough focal length so the moon covers 2/3rds of the view (first shot) ISO 100 is good. In manual mode look at your light meter try to have your F-stop at F8 or F11 and adjust the shutter speed for proper exposure, you may need to adjust your aperture up or down once you have a "normal" exposure either increase your shutter speed or preferably stop down the lens two stops.
Your camera will meter down to 30 seconds if it goes below this then this is where you take your start (first shot) meter reading and count how many stops of light you require beyond 30 seconds.
For practice though attempt to stay within the 30 seconds by increasing the aperture but not wide open say F8 is as low as you go, need some speed adjust the ISO up to ISO 200 then ISO 400 don't go beyond this because other factors come into play at this point. the thing is you need to establish a metering point then stop down two stops and see what you have as far as exposure.

I know this may all sound really complicated but it's not the most important thing is to have a good tripod use F8 as your widest aperture don't increase beyond ISO 400 and keep your shutter speed at 30 second or above. Another problem that will occur is focus actually the lack of, your camera requires contrast to focus one you have established this shift the lens into manual and recompose your scene. What we aren't done yet don't touch the camera when your release the shutter. Use the 2 second time delay to give the camera time to stop vibrating after the shutter has bee depressed remove your hand DON'T touch it until the picture is finished. If it were me I'd be looking at doing a few landscapes at night to get use to all this stuff then tackle the moon so to speak. In the mean time here is a picture of The Fork Of the Thames in London Ontario Canada.

I need to adjust the shutter speed for my Canon Powershot SX110. It is way to slow. And to make matters worse I lost our user manual.:(


You can download a copy of the manual from the manufacturer's web site at http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=324&modelid=17480

The easiest way to control the shutter speed is to turn the mode dial to Tv (Time-value) mode. You then control the shutter speed by turning the command dial.

That's the "how". Now for the "why". I believe your main problem is the lack of light. In such cases the camera will slow down the shutter speed in order to get sufficient light to the sensor. A partial solution is to raise the sensitivity of the sensor. You do this by pressing the ISO button and pressing up/down to make your selection.

However, if there is not enough light, you just will not be able to get a sufficiently fast shutter speed. Depending on the situation, you can use flash, either the built-in one or an external unit.

The small sensor of a compact camera only makes it worse; the larger sensor in a dSLR will be more sensitive to light.

I have a canon ixus 85is camera. iwant to be able to set aperture and shutter speed.i am concerned about shooting fast moving objects.


Hello tonyhart,

The Canon IXUS 85 IS camera was sold as the Powershot SD770 IS in the USA. You can download the manual for this camera from this page at Canon.com.

This camera has a Kids and Pets mode that helps when taking photos of faster moving objects. Details are on page 72 of the manual. Give that a try. If that doesn't work you will need to go into Manual Mode - details are on page 74 of the manual.

You may need to increase the ISO. See page 69. If you set the camera to a high ISO the images will not be as clear, especially in the darker areas - this is called "noise". This is one of the trade-offs we need to make to shoot in low light. If you change the ISO remember to return the ISO back to Auto or a low ISO setting (e.g. ISO 100) when you are done!

If it still doesn't work it means you simply don't have enough light. This can be a big problem with indoor sports - a person's eye adjusts to the low light and it looks "bright enough" to our eye, but it isn't bright enough for many cameras. This is why professional photographers spend the big bucks to buy the big cameras you see them using to shoot sports photos - those cameras have lenses and sensors that are better able to take photos in low light.

Good luck!

Blurry action pictures!


This Powershot A590 camera has a Kids and Pets mode that may help. If that doesn't work, you need to set your camera to Shutter Priority (TV) mode on the dial. Then you use the arrows to increase or decrease the shutter speed setting. Depending on the sport/action, your shutter may need to be 1/400 up to 1/1000 or higher.

You may find you don't have enough light to get a fast shutter speed at the standard ISO, so you may also need to increase the ISO. Only increase it as much as needed to get your shots, and don't forget to return it to a lower ISO when you are done. You set the ISO from the Func/Set button menu.

You will have a relatively shallow area of focus (called depth of field) unless you have a LOT of light and are using a relatively slower shutter (e.g. 1/400 vs 1/1000). So be sure to keep the center of the focus on the player you are shooting.

Check your user manual for instructions on how to change to the AV mode and how to set the ISO. If you don't have your user manual, you can download it here, from Canon.

Finally, this type of camera tends to have a lot of "shutter lag" between when you press the shutter and when it takes the photo. You need to plan ahead and press the shutter in advance of the "peak action" when you want to capture the photo.

Manual shooting mode problem.


The exposure compensation dial (at the back) doesn't work when you're in Manual. In Manual, you set the shutter speed and aperture to get an image with the amount of over- or under-exposure you need. In the view finder, the "exposure meter" at the bottom shows how much light there is where the lens is pointed. When it shows what you called "2-stops", its really underexposed. Thus your black images. You need to increase ISO, open the aperture and slow down the shutter speed (or a combination of these 3 options)

Set your camera to P or full-auto. Do the photos turn out ok? If they do, then there's nothing wrong with your camera and you just need practise on the Manual mode.

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.
