Hi Pauline and welcome to the blog. I have just downloaded the manual for your camera to see if there is anything strange as regarding using the camera in manual mode, it look fairly straight forward so long as you know the relationship between shutter speeds and aperture settings. As far as I can see you set your mode dial to manual, then you turn the command dial to set your shutter speed, and to set the aperture you hold down the exposure compensation button and turn the command dial to set the aperture. You should see the exposure indicator at the bottom, which has a plus on the right and a minus on the left; the trick is to get the indicator mark in the middle. If you set the camera in manual mode, look through the viewfinder and move the camera around you will see the marker move depending on the light, if the marker is to one side, then you need to alter either your aperture or shutter speed to bring the marker back into the middle to give you an exposure. It may sound complicated but all you are doing is what the camera will do itself in auto mode. Of course this all fall down when you are shooting a snow scene or shooting at night because of the way camera meters work. Hope this helps, page 44 of your manual will explain.


Thank you so much John
