Camera settings
I did a search, But when you set the shutter speed you turn the wheel to S and set the speed you want.When done do I leave it at S or after it is set I can go to the mode I want. For Example I want a shutter speed of 400 so I turn the wheel to 400 set it, now I want to take sports pics so I turn the wheel to the sports setting and I am ready to shoot. And I guess when I do other settings I do the same. Is this right,Thanks...

Hi,.

Difficult to answer without knowing what camera you're using but I'd guess that moving to "sports" takes you back to a version "S" of that's not using the 400th you set. Trouble is, most of them don't tell you what the sports modes (or any of the others do)..

In you shoes I's use shutter priority and ignore sports mode..

Thanks it is an oly 510. If using shutter priority should it be left on S when I am shooting. When I leave it on S it does not take continuous shots like when on sports mode. Sorry if questions sound stupid. I am reading the manual but not really sure,Thanks again..

When using shutter priority and aperture priority on most camera's you must leave it on that setting. The sports setting and others like this are auto modes and will set everything for you.Benhttp://www.b3nbrooks.com/blog/..

Continuous shooting requres the camera to be set in the appropriate "Drive Mode"..

I think when you use the "Sports Mode" the camera is changing several different settings simultaneously..

Definitely if you go into "S" mode, set the shutter speed and then change the mode dial away from "S" your settings will be ignored, so there is no point in doing so..

I don't have this particular camera, but it is reasonable to assume that everything the camera is doing in "Sports" mode can be achieved by making the required settings yourself, such as the continuous shooting already mentioned, and possibly such things as focus mode and ISO setting and so on. Really it's just a short cut, and if you understand what you need from the camera, there is probably no need to use "Sports" mode at all, just make the settings yourself. On the other hand if it works and delivers good results, by all means use it.Regards,Peter..

Do yourself a massive favour and pretend the scene modes are not there..

Learn the basics of exposure and go from there..

Hi,.

I'll go along with the others. One advantage of sports mode is that it gets you there quickly but I guess you only need to set it once for the event and that goes for ignoring it and setting each aspect yourself..

Having said that, I'll add a note of caution; choosing (say) 1/500 might mean you run out of apertures for the ISO setting chosen. It might be better to chose a lower ISO (for less noise etc) and "Sports" mode because the camera will usually pick the highest shutter speed you can use given the other factors like lighting and available aperture..

Don't forget that, as you zoom towards the tele end of the lens, the aperture gets smaller and smaller. (Unless you're using that beautiful f/2 all through zoom lens Olympus do for newsmen... ).

Regards, David..

I learned on a film SLR and got the basics down before moving to something more modern. I'm happy to report I've never once used one of those 'scene' modes. I guess they're there for those who don't want to get involved with manually setting things, or those who don't know what to set them to, so I agree with the other poster who said to do yourself a favour and pretend those modes aren't there. That's a good way to progress your skills!..
