Tip & How-To about Canon PowerShot G11 Digital Camera

Shutter Speed Problem with Canon G11?

If you are in M mode or Tv (Time Value mode or in fact Shutter Speed mode) and the Control Wheel does not seem to be changing your Shutter Speed properly:
There was a design change between the G10 and G11 and it is possible for lubricant to be placed onto a contact, rendering the contact dysfunctional.
There is a gap around the circumference of the Control Wheel that allows a very brief single squirt of WD Contact Cleaner.
One squirt, then rotate the wheel in both directions for a few seconds.

how do I change the aperture when my camera is in manual mode


You have to hold down the exposure compensation button at the same time as turning the control dial.
The values appear on the control panel screen.

I found this on page 33 of the manual...
Set the mode dial to M and turn the control dial to set the value.
• To set the shutter speed: Turn the control dial.
To set the aperture value:Turn the control dial while holding down the
[+-](exposure compensation) button.

The exposure level indicator appears on the control panel screen, showing the difference (ranging from -3 EV to +3 EV) between the exposure value calculated by the currently selected aperture
and shutter speed compared to the exposure value considered optimum by the camera.

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'm using a Canon EOS Rebel X S 35mm SLR What setting should i set my camera for a manual shutter speed?


If your camera is a Rebel XS you should have a dial on the top right with a series of letters and icons. To set your camera so you manually control the shutter speed turn this dial too "TV" (Time Value). This setting will allow you to select the shutter speed and the aperture will open or close to achieve the correct exposure. The "M" is (Manual) where you would select both the shutter speed and aperture "AV" is (Aperture Value) where the user selects the aperture they want and the shutter speed increases or decreases to obtain a proper exposure. The "P" (Program) mode allows the camera to automatically select the shutter speed and aperture

How do you change the shutter speed on a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7 Digital Camera? I want to take pictures of lightning with it, I have found the ISO settings find and changed them to what I want, but the shutter speed isnt quick enough.


Hello,
You may change your shutter speed in Manual mode only. So you should turn your mode dial button to M position. Then you may control both shutter speed and aparture value.

How do I adjust the shutter speed


Hello,

Set the mode dial on the top of the camera to Tv.
Use the control dial on the back to change the shutter speed.
The aperture value is shown on the screen at the bottom.
If it is shown in red the picture will not expose correctly.
Adjust the dial until the value is white.

I hope this helps.
