Man­ual mode

Photo Plus - - Exposure Modes -

In man­ual mode, you set both the aper­ture and shut­ter speed. De­cide whether the most im­por­tant el­e­ment is depth of field or shut­ter speed. If you want to con­trol depth of field, set aper­ture first. If you want to con­trol move­ment in a shot, set shut­ter speed first.

You can then ad­just the other set­ting un­til the in­dex mark is in the mid­dle of the ex­po­sure level in­di­ca­tor for a stan­dard ex­po­sure. You may also need to in­crease/de­crease ISO to achieve your de­sired aper­ture/shut­ter speed com­bi­na­tion.

When us­ing a flash­gun or stu­dio lights, Man­ual mode gives you free reign to set the op­ti­mum shut­ter speed, aper­ture and ISO for the shot (such as 1/200 sec, f/11, ISO100); you then ad­just the out­put of the flash for your de­sired ex­po­sure.
