I've got a Nikon D300, and I'm just as clueless with it as you are! Maybe Scott or Kenny can shed some light on the subject.

But I must say, that last picture of the gauges is VERY good! It's my favorite. It's so sharp and clear.

Hi Ishaq, Many years ago I has a Fujifilm s602 Zoom with a mighty 3.2 megapixel sensor. It was my first digital camera and I was very chuffed with it. I've since moved to a Nikon DSLR.

I've just Googled FinePix S9000 Owners Manual and came up with this - http://www.fujifilmusa.com/shared/bin/S9000ownermanual.pdf
Hope it helps
John

Your aperture is your depth of field. Basically what that means is that the higher the number, the more of the background is in focus, and the lower the number the less of the background is in focus. For example, if you took a photo of a candle with an aperture of f/22 the candle and whatever is in the background will be in focus. However, if you take a photo of the same candle with an aperture of f/5, the candle will be focused but everything in the background would appear blurry. The aperture comes in particularly useful when you want to draw attention to specific features of an item or person, such as a Toyota badge on the front grille or someone's face.

Your shutter speed relates to the amount of time that the shutter is open before it closes again. The slower the shutter speed, the longer the shutter is open and more light is let into the sensor, therefore the brighter the photo becomes. Whereas the faster the shutter speed, the shutter opens and shuts quicker, allowing less light into the sensor and making your photos darker. The correct shutter speed you should be using greatly varies depending on the time of the day you're shooting, the type of subject you are shooting, if you are using the camera's built-in flash and if you are using a tripod.

A longer shutter speed will need to be used at dusk or at night time because there is less light available, whereas a faster shutter speed will need to be used during daylight hours. For example, in the daytime you may use a fast shutter speed of say 1/200s, whereas at night time or in a lower light situation you may have to use a shutter speed of 1/8s. The slower the shutter speed the higher the chances are of motion blur occurring. Depending on how steady your hands are, you should get to around 1/60s before having to resort to using a tripod to prevent any camera shake.

There is a lot more to shutter speeds than what I have written, and I could literally go on about it for hours, but the main thing that you have to remember is that you should stick to using a relatively fast shutter speed in daylight situations and slow it down in lower light situations to compensate for the lack of available light. Think of the sensor as a sponge, the longer the shutter is open the more light it can absorb, and the shorter it's open the less light it can absorb.

ISO also determines how bright/dark your images will become but it relates more to the grain side of things. The higher your ISO speed the higher your chances are of seeing visible grain in your photos, whereas the lower your ISO is the clearer your photos will be. Grain usually only happens in low light situations and when the ISO is set too high to compensate for poor lighting. Typically for daytime shooting it's best to keep the ISO set to about 400, whereas for night time shooting where you are using a tripod bring the ISO down as low as you can, to about 100. In the daytime it's much more beneficial to lower your shutter speed than increase your ISO to compensate for a lack of light, and if worst comes to worst then use a tripod as opposed to bumping the ISO up because grain is difficult to get rid of. It is crucial to have the ISO speed set as low as possible when taking HDR photos because they produce a lot of grain if set any higher than about ISO 100.

I hope that makes things a little clearer. Don't worry if it doesn't make much sense right now. It took me a while to get my head around what everything meant in the beginning but I can assure you that it does get easier, and practice makes perfect. If you have any questions just let me know Smile

Thank you, Scott! I know so little about cameras, even though I have taken photography classes in school. I knew what aperture/shutter/etc were, but your explanation helps so much.

+ rep, mang Razz

Welcome to the club! lol and like Scott said, it does take time to get the hang of everything. But judging from the pics, looks like you already got the hang of everything! lol but here's a vid if you need a bit more clarification:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nk78nH3d8hU&list=PL5BDE0F5B5EBC3831&index=1&feature=plpp_video

If you're serious about photography and you're taking the pics in RAW format, I would recommend getting Adobe Lightroom. It's expensive but *cough*piratebay.org*cough* you'll love it. Razz

And if you have extra money to spend, you should look into getting a telephoto/zoom lens (55mm~300mm), a wide angle (18mm~55mm), and a prime lens for great low light shots. Looks like you already got yourself the telephoto/zoom lens though! Very Happy
