Default Does Anyone know

Where i could find like a settings table with the terms (as in FZ38 Menus) and what the effect is ? You know like Faster shutter speed = less light etc ?
I find things online but am struggling to tie things up with the camera menu.
Would it be fair to say that capturing something moving on a lovely sunny day would be the time to increase shutter speed ?
Sorry to be such a pain with silly questions

Forzahips-

I would suggest that you begin by always using your FZ-35/38 in the "P" for program mode. Then you will have a solid base from which to make any changes. Also please keep in mind that when you depress the shutter release 1/ way down, while in the "P" mode, you will see the ACTUAL shutter speed and the aperture your camera is going to use for that photo.

Taking you bright sunny day scenario: and assuming you have set a specific ISO setting:

1. If you increase the ISO setting, the shutter speed will increase..

2. If you decrease the ISO setting, the shutter speed will decrease.

No, those changes will not be retained. That is why your photographic Data Bank (mentally) is so very valuable.
