I have just got a Fuji S5600 and basically dont have a clue!!! :?

I like the fact you can change a lot of settings and it is a SLR sytle camera. What I am trying to do is get the subject in focus and the background blurred. I set the camera to A then I need to set a wide apature setting. I think that means the F stop? which is widest the bigger or smaller the F stop number? If it is not the F stop number what is it?

Told you I was a noob to all this, sorry for being completly thick!!!

The wider (more open) aperture is the smaller f number

Eg f2 lets in twice the light of f2.8 which lets in twice the light of f4

Have a look at http://www.robert-barrett.com/photo/...alculator.html
