Having problems with your Canon EOS-20D Digital Camera ?

Can't adjust aperature in manual mode.

\015 Shutter speed can be adjusted, but I can't adjust the aperature in manual mode. Turning the dial does nothing.\015

Answers :

1. Check the power switch is pointing to the rear dial (not "ON") or you wont be able to set your aperture.
\015\0122. Try shooting one image for each position of the mode dial on the top. Then review each image to see what mode the camera indicates the image was taken.(Pressing info during playback will bring up detailed information to show this) If the recorded setting and actual setting dont match, this indicates a fault with the dial.
\015\0123. If the camera does not display an aperture, or shows "00" then there is a communication fault with the lens. Check the contacts are clean and sitting correctly. You can confirm this lens is at fault by trying another lens on your camera,I'm sure a photo store could help with this.
\015\012Good luck!

Shutter speed on the auto mode of my s1000 camera seems slow. how can it be increased in the auto mode? This is a Fuji camera and by the time I press the shutter button subjects have moved.

Shutter speed I have had my camera for 6 months. Today I used it for soccer pics and put it on sport mode and every pic I took is blurry. We looked on the information of the pics and the shutter speed is really low. My husband started to look and try to manually adjust some things and the speed will not change. States LOW. I also looked at the soccer portraits I took right before the action shots same day...and some of those are a little blurry as well. What could be wrong? Please help!
