Question about Canon PowerShot S400 / IXUS 400 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Shutter speed Hi all, I just recently bought the s400, and I love the camera, though I will admit I was disappointed that I couldn't control the shutter speed. I am confused though, becuase looking at reviews and pictures taken by the s400 the author said what the shutter speed was - how could they possibly know that? Is there a way to tell what your shutter speed is? I can't figure it out .. It is said that shutter is best at 1/125 for motion pictures - so how will I know if thats what my shutter speed is? *confused* Please help

Re: Shutter speed

You can get much information from the EIXF file generated by the camera with each picture. i think you right click on the picture and select properties. Ed

How to set Shuttler Speed


As with most point&shoot cameras, the M753 doesn't give you much direct control over the camera. It expects you to just point the camera and shoot. You can "suggest" to the camera that it use a fast shutter speed by setting it to the Sports scene mode, or that it use a slow shutter speed by setting it the Landscape scene mode (though the latter would also set the focus to infinity).

How to chance shutter speed in canon sx 260


For direct control over the shutter speed, set your camera to the Tv (time value) mode. See the "Specific Shutter Speeds (Tv Mode)" section in the user guide (page 140 in my copy).

If you need the user guide, you may download a copy from here.

I have a Pentax *ist DL2 camera, which I bought second hand on ebay, but from a very lovely, recommended seller, so he wasn't having me on. But recently, every button I press seems to set the shutter off...


Take off the lens and fire off a few shots. Does the mirror flip up? Or is it permanently up? Does the shutter open? Can you see through the lens? This "lovely, recommended seller" may have unloaded his problems on you.

Nikon D40X In Program mode (P*) I can not change settings. Nikon's video show it is possible to do this using the command dial. Any suggestions ?


Program: Puts the camera in charge of aperture and shutter speed, though all remaining camera settings are available. You can vary the combination of aperture and shutter speed the camera has selected by rotating the Command Dial.
from: http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/D40X/D40XMENUS.HTM
The camera takes care of the shutter and aperture settings, and you control the other stuff...(presumably white balance, focus points...etc.?). I hav ea D70 and using the thumb wheel, I can, on 'P' mode, set the aperture...but the shutter speed is always 'auto' as far as I can tell.
Best of luck!

Of course it does, it has full manual control (M), but may I suggest first trying "shutter priority" (Tv). This mode lets you set shutter speed up to 15 seconds, but it automatically sets the aperture to match the shutter speed that you set. Merely turn the mode dial to Tv, then use the right/left buttons to select the shutter speed.

Now before pressing the shutter button, may I also suggest that you use the camera's shutter delay timer to take the picture (this will eliminate any shake from you pressing the button). Just press the function button to bring up the menu. then find the timer setting (try 2 seconds).

Here's where you can download your camera's user manual if you want to read more on what your camera can do:

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.

Powershot A310 not able to sense the objects


Normally there are two reasons for the given problem. 1). Bad or defective CCD. and/or 2). shutter not working. in the first case the only solution is the replacement of the CCD. and in the later case sticking of shutter blade, non functioning of shutter blade will cause the problem. This can be rectified by sending it to some repairer.

Understanding Samsung digimax 4010 camera


First, go out (if you have not already) and buy a set of AA-sized NiMH rechargable batteries and a charger. The Energizer models w/ charger are fine and can be found all over. Alkalines are not useful for this camera (or many others) for very long. Second, the camera should (I'm guessing) default to full auto mode. Turn the camera on, point it and your subject, and hold down the shutter button until it takes the picture. You might want to hold the shutter half-way to let it focus first, but it's not required. Samsung doesn't have a lot of info online about this camera, so it's pretty difficult to give any more tips. I've not used this camera before. Basic functionality should be available right out of the box though.
