ok i don't know if i am making sense here, since ike i said befroe i am a total newbie to photography but is there a way to chance the EV settings when my camera is set to M ? it seems the camera always chooses this setting and i can't seem to change, or even know if i should, i just though i could try diferent settings.

i post 2 photos, showing what i mean one has a aperture of 1/4000 and the other one 1/10 the EV from the 1/10 is only -0.7 and the one from 1/4000 is -3.0 in RED.

like i said maybe i don't even need to change this settings, but i was wondering ifi could.

Hi Shanti: "Manual Mode: Allows the user to select both the desired aperture (f/2.8 tof/11) and shutter speed (1/4,000 to 16 seconds, with a Bulb mode) settings independently. The camera meters the scene, and indicates how over- or underexposed it thinks the shot will be by displaying the number of EV units over or under in green numerals. If the settings are beyond the camera's metering capabilities or would result in more than a +/- 3EV exposure error, the display is fixed at plus or minus 3 EV, and the numerals turn red."

You are selecting the shutter speeds in manual mode, and the camera is simply showing you the amount of under or over exposure that you are selecting. You change either the f-stop or shutter speed to bring it back to correct exposure. And you change the EV by the "ISO" menu settings. You can set it to auto, or between 80 to 400.

While the manual mode is good for special conditions, most of the time the Shutter priority, Aperture priority, or Program modes will give you great shots.
