Are you sure you don't mean the PROGRAM mode here ?? - The Oly program mode favors the f 2.8 f stop until the shutter speed rises to 1/300th to 1/400th - only at this point will the f stop start to rise. If it IS the shutter priority mode then you have the shutter speeds set too HIGH and the camera is making an attempt to do the best it can by setting the lens as WIDE as it can at f 2.8. James, Try this again in good light and reduce the shutter speed lower and lower - eventually the f stop will start to rise

Hi i have lost my manual for my sont dslr a330 digital camera. when i put it in 'priority apeture' the picture is black and white, and i cant seem to change it? can you please help??


Take it off green box auto first you can't change it until you do. A or M mode.

Unless they changed the way they do it with the 330, you press the AV button on the back of the camera WHILE turning the control dial by the shutter release. If you dig through the menu system you will find a menu item to let you set the control dial to change aperture directly, and pressing the AV button is required to change shutter speed.

You can also consult the user manual from this link for further things that you can try , just click HERE.

My Pentax K100 DSLR is flashing "av" and will not take a photograph, though the shutter works fine and takes pictures without the lens.


"AV" means apeture priority. This means that you set the apeture that the camera will use, and it decides the shutter speed. The flashing "av" means that you've picked an apeture that the camera can't pick a suitable shutter speed for at this light level. I would suggest picking a different apeture, or switch the camera to full automatic mode via the dial on the top left of the camera.

How do you set the apeture on a Kodak Easyshare DX4530 camera?


1 In any Still mode, press the Menu button.

2 Press to highlight Exposure Compensation , then press the OK

button.

3 Press to select the Exposure

Compensation setting.

 If pictures are too light, decrease the

value.

 If pictures are too dark, increase the

value.

4 Press the OK button to accept the change.

5 Press the Menu button to exit the menu.

6 Use the camera screen to frame your

subject. Press the Shutter button half-way

to set the focus, then continue pressing

completely down to take the picture.

This setting remains until you change the
Mode dial or turn off the camera.

The LCD-screen seems to work normal. But when we take a picture (camera-mode normal and record-mode normal) the result is overlighted and misty and full of horizontal lines. In video mode the camera works...


Try to use a different setting like a bright light setting to see if the apeture is closed down further and brings back focus.
the problem is the auto focus which can be going stray and is not setting right.So take time to shoot with the shutter button down to half to allow it to focus and then once the indication of the focus has confirmed to click.
If not contact Sony service for help.

Inconsistant exposure in Manual mode


In manual mode the light meter result is the output of setting the apeture and shutter speed. It will constantly change as you change these and the ISO until you get the desired exposure. Is this what you mean by inconsistent? If it is giving verying results in the same conditions try it with ISO 100. That should fix it

I never got a manual for my s 5200 fuji fine pix. My problem is I'm not sure what the M, A, s, P, and different settings on my camera mean. And am having a hard time finding the site on here.


M-manuel, you set up all of the functions, difficult as the camera will not give you any help A-apeture priorities, you tell the camera the apeture you want to use, the ISO you want,the white balance you want the exposure level you want, and it adjusts the shutter speed to compensate S-shutter priorities, just like apeture priorities except the camera adjusts the apeture fou you instead of the shutter speed P-program mode, lets you tell the camera how bright or dark you want the picture to be, and it adjusts everything else
Here is a link to a website that has an instruction manual

Best picture mode


Speed= Shutter Speed
A= Apeture
M=Manual
P=Program
I you are asking about the meaning of the above this suggests you are just starting out so the best setting is P[Program]
This lets the camera select for its self the optimum settings.
With more than 60 years of photography behind me - I still use 'P' for snapping around.
If you want to go further you will have go get a good book.

Will a lenses without the A setting on the apeture ring work on a DS


They will - fully open in Av mode, and with any aperture in manual mode - after you allow the Ds through the custom settings menu to use aperture settings different then "A". To choose correct exposure with such a lens in manual mode you can use the AE-button - it stops down the aperture, reads the EV and sets the shutter speed according to the chosen aperture.

Focus on a subject


Question 1 - This should not happen as you describe. f 2.8 at 1/100th should give you about f 5.6 at 1/25th. Try this again and check to make sure the light level and your subject doesn't change
