Default Playing in M

Since the weather isn't good for cameras lately, lots of rain, i have been trying to learn my settings indoors.
I took these in M mode from the telvision, except number 4. I was very impressed with the first one as it is so clear. The others are not bad either i think. I am sure the pros here could do better of course but for me i am fairly happy with these. Lots more to learn thought, lol.

What a shame the weather is so bad that you're stuck indoors. At least you seem to be coming to grips with M mode, well done.

eysha - you are more courageous than me. I haven't even attempted to tackle the M mode...

Saly, it's not so difficult to use, the camera displays a meter at the bottom of the screen and you choose what shutter speed / F stop you want to use and adjust the other to put the meter pointer in the center of the meter....

ISO is pre-set?

To be honest I'm not sure what the camera sets it to if you don't set it yourself, sorry

Likewise Saly, I have tried a few times to shoot in M mode but I just get black photos. I can't seem to adjust the setting on the screen to match what the camera wants.

Thanks everyone, I got to grips faster on the M mode than the P mode. I simply alter the shutter speed and f-stop until i get the meter is in the centre. Probably a lot more to it but that is what i do so far. I cannot get to grips with P mode for some reason so I need help on that one, any offers Saly?,lol.

eysah - whatever works best for you is what you should use !! For me, it's P because once I set the ISO, I don't have to change anything else. I sometimes use A if I'm after a certain look. But, I know that many people prefer M for it's versatility, so I will have to force myself to try it.
