1) what you did here was right. +1 and +2 increases the sensitivity (ISO) +2 = 320.2) macro mode is the "flower" (don't know why it changes colour for you.3) AE lock is useful in Panorama mode ie, if you want to take a series of shots and join them together. You enable the lock after the first exposure and it maintains exposure and colour bablance for the next however many you take. Don't forget to 'unlock' after the series of photos.regards, Peter..
Hi Peter,Thank you so much for the information. Now I'm confident in changing ISO.The flower mark changes to green color 'sometimes', at a specific range->target, but I still haven't figured out the exact requirement for it to do so.BTW, I upgraded 1.1 to 1.2 which I downloaded yesterday, and with no problems(I think) Tony..
Tony, the changing of the color of the flower to yellow indicates that you have entered the macro mode. That is the only focal length range that allows you to get super close to an object and focus. When not yellow, the close focus point will still be a few inches. Try it. You will see the difference...
Hi Tony this is probably a silly suggestion, but did you check the CD that came with your camera for an English version of the manual? I have a Nikon CP950 and the CD that came with it has several language versions, inc Japanese.GREAT CAMERA Robin..
Sorry guys, for the late reply, but I was away on business trip.<STEVE>.
Thank you for the info, I was wrong, I thought it changes while I move the camera around, but actually changes when I set the zoom to certain level... around mid point.<ROBIN>.
Not silly at all, but I checked the content of the CD, which was labeled 'Nikon View Version 2.1', and [JPN], which I suppose is Japanese version only... But I don't see any other languages. Thank you anyway. Maby there're differences between Asia, America, Europe versions..?<SCOTT>.
Thank you for the info, as a matter of fact, that was the first place I looked while searching info concerning the digital camera, though it didn't help much, but that's how I found this place(among others), it's a great thing for me.. Best regards to you all.Tony Ko..
I just got my copy of "A short course in Nikon Coolpix 950 Photography" by Dennis Curtin. While I have only just barely started reading it, I would recommend it. Just about anything you want to know about the Nikon is in this book. Much more complete than Nikon's instructions. I got my copy at thomas distribution, but many digital suppliers stock it...
