Setting the manual mode on the Canon A610, basically, you just set the mode dial here, you can set the mode dial to M for manual, so set that, let’s turn the camera on. In the back of the bottom, you’ll notice that I have my shutter speed and my aperture setting available and basically the green arrows and the highlight indicates what time currently setting. So, you just use the last and right navigation buttons to change these settings. You can see here that right now I’m changing the shutter speed, slower and faster by pressing the right navigation button.
Now, to change to the aperture, so I can change that. I want to press this button here indicated by the competition exposure and the trash can icon. You just press that and the highlight switches over and now I have control of my aperture setting might have stopped. So, I can set that to whatever I want. Now, when I absolutely do not recommend doing is using the screen to judge the correct exposure. What you're going to want to do is press the shutter button halfway and let the camera indicate and set here in the bottom right now it says that I’m minus two thirds exposed so I can adjust my settings accordingly until I get a better setting, now it’s -1 and two thirds.
Basically, you just play with that and try it. If you don’t want to use the camera’s meter and think you want something else, then you can just overwrite it and disregard that number and just take the picture without it. But, you want to track up a settings probably I’d recommend taking two or three pictures even maybe do a little bracketing to help you get the exposures you want later on in the computer, that’s it.
