Question about Cameras

On the Canon G3 I have issues with the main dial on the handgrip (used for aperture shutter speed and manual focus) while in Manual mode. it will change settings only some of the time! is this usually due to dust in the area and can it be cleaned or otherwise made operational?

Thanx for nothing

if and when I fix the problem with the G3 I will likely not tell you so that you can charge $9.99 to the next person to ask the same question. This is the kind of scam that I expected and the likelyhood of hearing back form a human being was slim to none!

again thanx for nothing G3guy

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.

Aperture


In the Manual mode, press FN then use up/down-arrow. See page 18 of the manual: http://www.fixya.com/support/p1252477-samsung_bl103_digital_camera/usermanual-BC1D8FD-pdf

Bought cheap extention tubes, now camera wont recognize the lens. How do I use them


Set the exposure mode to "M" (Manual). You'll have to set both the aperture and shutter speed yourself.

You'll also get no exposure assistance from the camera's light meter. You can review the picture after taking one and/or use the histogram to tune the exposure.

How do you set the aperture and shutter speed independently


First, make sure you're in the manual exposure mode, not manual focus mode, as set by turning the mode dial to the "M" position.
In manual exposure mode, turning the main command dial should change the aperture, while turning the subcommand dial should change the shutter speed.
If the two command dials don't have the expected effect, reply to this post and we can troubleshoot further.

How do i change my aperture setting on my samsung v800?


Turn the mode dial to "A". Turn the jog dial to change the aperture and the camera will change the shutter speed to match. You can also go to the manual mode, where you have to set both the aperture and shutter speed.
Full details are in the "How to use the APERTURE PRIORITY mode" section of the manual (page 22 in my copy). If you need a copy of the manual, you may download one here.

With a Vivitar Series E f/1.8 lens (non AF) added to the D90, images won't display in live playback. D90 on Manual focus, lens at f22. Is this lens not compatible?


With such an old lens, you'll have to use it in Manual exposure mode. Turn the mode dial on the left side of the camera to M. Control the shutter speed by turning the main command dial on the back, the aperture by turning the ring on the lens. You will get no assistance in metering from the camera.

How can I control the shutter speed on my d200?


In Programmed (P), Shutter-priority (S), and Manual (M) modes, turn the main command dial (the one in the back). In Aperture-priority (A) mode, turning the subcommand dial (the one in the front) controls the aperture and changes the shutter speed to suit.

This all assumes you haven't gone into the menus and switched the functions of the two command dials.

Manually setting shutter speed and aperture..


http://web.canon.jp/imaging/eosd/eosdigital4/specifications.html

First off, welcome to the world of photography! Good luck and have fun!!!

Like any slr, you have the option of Manual exposure. I'm not familiar w/ modern Canons (I use Nikon). According to this page, however, you also have aperture priority and shutter priority. I'm pretty sure ALL modern Canons have bracketing modes as well (Use this for HDR).

I couldn't find the 450 manual (I'm assuming Canon's web devs are behind), but I did find the instruction manual for the 400 :

http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/0900000357/EOSDRXTi400DIM-EN.pdf

Should be similar, probably w/o some of the functions. Although you SHOULD have a book w/ your camera ;). Read it thoroughly.

Ok, according to the 400 manual, put your camera into Manual mode, then adjust the regular dial to adjust shutter speed. Then, to adjust aperture, hold in the A/V button while you adjust the same dial.

Like I said, may be a bit different. I think the dial may even be digital buttons rather than analog...

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.
