Hava, I think the 10M is the megapixel setting. That is for the resolution, or the number of pixels that the image uses. That setting does not really affect the exposure.

The ISO setting is almost certainly under the letters "ISO." It may be buried in the settings menu. Sometimes there is a dedicated button to press for ISO (but not usually).

Havalotta,

If you still have the Fujifilm S8100, see if these help (from the manual):

Hope this helps,

P.S. ISO will not be displayed for changing if you are in AUTO or one of the other Pre-Set modes (landscape, macro, etc)

I HAVE to quit and finish cleaning my fish tank.

I FOUND IT! I was focusing on the white highlighted Quality in the photos you sent. I see it is ABOVE that one in grey! No Wonder why I couldn't find it. I'll have to remember to be off the auto mode then to change things.
I think this will help me greatly...... I could not take ANY dusk photos due to blurring. Can't wait to try it out.... The darker it is out the higher the # I'll set it to...

Thanyou thankyou.... Sometimes it's good to take a break and start fresh...

Problems, problems, problems.....
Learn how to nail your exposures-dscf6597-copy.jpg
I've been noticing....... more and more of my shots seem to be taking on a bluish hue.
Learn how to nail your exposures-dscf6602.jpg
They're looking overexposed and lacking the vivid colors they should have.
Is it possible the camera's lost its automatic sensor capability?

I've tried setting the ISO at different settings (100-200 and 400 in bright situations) and the shots are still
lacking the vivid greens, the deep rich brown tones.

I just can't figure out why I'm getting so many faded looking shots! Any suggestions as to what it may be?

Just a thought - have you tried resetting everything to the factory settings and AUTO? Maybe while playing with the options you got one of the settings off.

Any idea how? I've played around with TONS of stuff trying to figure out how to use that darn manual mode.

I'm a bit late to this thread, but....

In my opinion, manual mode is greatly overrated. That was the method that all cameras used back when I was starting out, and I welcome the new modes.

I use aperture priority mode a lot, and I've learned to read the histogram to tell if I've exposed correctly. I also have the camera set to display blinking highlights where things are overexposed. If an adjustment is needed, I use the exposure compensation to get the exposure I want. I also shoot RAW files, so I can fine-tune exposure and white balance after the fact to get things exactly the way I want them.

Hava, the color of the reflected light from your subject in the photo varies with the source of the light; that may be the cause of your unwanted "blues". Most digital cameras will allow you to adjust the "white balance" to fit the actual light source. I'd suggest reviewing the white balance section in your manual. There is a big difference in the final "look" of the picture taken under different settings: e.g. incandescent, fluorescent, direct sun, cloudy, shade, etc. Try shooting the same shot under the aperture setting and changing the white balance presets... ie from sunny to shade to cloudy to incandescent. Have fun playing around with it... you may be able to bid the bye to the bad blues!
