Default S602 - How to change aperture in manual mode?

Hi,

I lost the user manual for my S602... (
When in manual mode (M), turning the round dial changes the shutter speed but the aperture remains unchanged. How am I supposed to change it?

Thanks.

Download the manual from the Fuji web site - It's there!

There are various ways. Personally I turn the function wheel back a click to Aperture priority, set the aperture then move a click forward back to Manual and set the shutter. The other way is to hold the +- button on the top and turn the other wheel. I find that fiddly in the dark! VOX

Press the "+/=" button (the exposure compensation button) and turn the command dial.

I tried this. Doing what you described changes the aperture, and then, by turning the function wheel back to manual does not change the shutter speed. My point is this: we can set the aperture in the ways described, but how do we know that the shutter speed is correct? After making the settings in aperture priority, do we rotate the wheel back to "Auto?"

after you change the aperture in a mode, and move back to manual, just moving the dial without pressing any buttons changes the shutter speed in manual (while moving the dial while hodling the +/- button changes aperture in m mode).

at the bottom, bar, where you have shutter, aperture, and then a bar with +________V___-, is where you tell if the picture is correctly exposed.. or not.

basically if the pointer moves towards the '-' sign, then according to the camera's P mode, it believes that the shot will be underexposed, and overexposed if it moves towards the '+' sign. it may be that you want to have some under or over exposure, up to you certainly--that's what manual mode is for, for you to choose the right settings for the situation.

for example, if i want to shoot something like a panorama, which requires the same settings throughout the series of pictures, i may get the exposure settings in P mode of a portion of the panorama which i believe will expose the whole correctly, then move into M mode, make any adjustments necessary, and then click click click click click. =)

hope this helps =)
