Hi, I'm new here and am enjoying all the info about the 5100. I bought my 5100 in August '05 and I love it. But I am still learning.

One reply here confused me---about the aperture settings----I thought that greater depth of field was gained by the lower number setting....but then someone suggested going from f4 to f8 to increase depth of field. That is the opposite of what I thought.

I am still trying to figure out aperture and shutter settings. So far the shutter settings have only led to lighter or darker pictures for me, they have not helped when trying to take pics of fast moving objects. I've also tried testing out various aperture settings while taking pics of a line of objects, but the depth of focus does not seem to change at all.

One more thing I need to understand....about the shutter settings.....people always write "1/60" or "1/1000" but on the actual camera, there are no "1/" on the settings. So when you get to the settings like 1.3", what does that mean?

Amy,

F-stop numbers can be a little confusing until you understand them. The higher the number, the smaller the f-stop. If you think about it as a fractional number, 1/2.8 is larger than 1/8. If you look on pages 37 and 38 of your user manual, you will find information about aperture priority and shutter priority and there are illustrations to help you understand how to read what the camera is set at.
