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

I can't get my 5D mark iii to operate at night with available light

Try using manual focus - if the autofocus won't work, because of low light, then you can't take pictures.

How could use vivtar 500mm in D40x. the seller asked me to put the camera in Manaul mode and set off to the shutter priorty to off. I could not find how to set the shutter priority to off in the setting.

A 500 mm mirror lens is a fully manual lens (manual focus no aperture change) using a T mount adapter to your specific camera. The T mount costs some $15. It depends on your camera how to turn off the auto focus and go to aperture priority mode. The aperture on a mirror lens is set, usually at F8, so the shutter is the only item that can be adjusted to get a correct exposure. A digital camera (set in adjustable ASA setting) can change it's ASA to help with getting a correct exposure. Manual for digital camera are usually on the companies' web site.

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.

I have a Nikon 33mmSLR on maunal setting, to control apeture and shutter speed. There is an automatic setting, but I have it on manual and I am still getting the FEE error. If I switch it to lowest apeture...

Ignore the error. Control the aperture by turning the aperture ring on the lens. You will get no help from the camera's exposure meter.

If the shutter cannot be fired this way, please reply to this post and we'll go on from there.

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.

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

Bought nikon d2x but some of the setting are lock. How to unlock

The camera is probably in Auto Mode. Set it to manual and you can change your ISO, Shutter, and Apeture settings.

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
