Changing the F Stop in Manual Mode

edited March 2013 Posted in » Nikon D5100 Forum
I recently upgraded to a D5100. I was playing around with it tonight in manual mode. At first I was getting clear crisp shots, but after a few minutes my shots were coming out completly blurry or all black. I am thinking it is my F stop but I cannot figure out how to get it lowered from f/16. Any help would be appreciated!


  • What setting is your dial at on top of the camera?
  • @melawson15 - If you're in manual mode, you have to press the (+/-) button and then rotate the command dial at the same time. This will allow you to lower or raise the aperture f-number.
