Betty LaRue Posted April 30, 2014 Share Posted April 30, 2014 OK, I know this is an absolutely stupid question. You may call me stupid. I got my camera about 6:30 in the evening yesterday. I'm trying to set it up. Reading the manual, although I never did "get" manuals too much. I want to set up aperture priority. Looking at all these pretty little dials, I like it. Anything like my Nikons? Not on your life. So..Aperture priority, I dial the shutter speed dial to the red A? Then how do I adjust aperture? The manual says, to adjust aperture manually while letting the camera select shutter speed for optimal exposure, rotate the shutter speed dial to A and adjust aperture as desired. A will appear in the display. I assume I turn the front command dial, is that right? I'm just so unfamiliar with this camera. I would be interested to know what you each are using for your settings. RAW and jpeg, both? Are you shooting in Program? (or does it have "Program, lol) Aperture? Shutter? Or let the image dictate, which I'm sure shooting fast moving things one would always shoot shutter priority. But for everything else, what mode? Auto ISO or set it? Adobe RGB? That's what I set. I think I'll shoot RAW + jpeg for awhile, since I'm very curious about jpeg quality, yet don't want to lose my digital negatives and all those possibilities. I have the 18-55 and 10-24 lenses, with the 56 on backorder. Also, not real sure how to check for light leak. I don't want to put on my LCD cover until I know it doesn't have the light leak. I want to take a few test images, but hate to do so badly at it that my heart sinks. Betty Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
