    I like your quip. Dry humour but not nasty. However his post is not yet 24 hours old so maybe we have to give a little leeway. It's the one post on say, Jan 1 then 99 helpful replies over the next few days and occasional posts over many subsequent months or even years with no further OP response that gets to me

    I have a feeling that there must be more to the OP's question than meets the eye as the shutter speed dial tells it all

    I would suggest looking up and getting a copy of John Hegecoe's, "The Manual of Photography". It's a great book to keep in you library. It covers all aspects of manual photography in short easy to understand sections with great graphics to help visualize the concepts. They are pretty cheap.

    Sorry still figuring out the web site. This has been helpful! I guess it is just a learning curve! I just need to get some books on photography.

    Usually if a camera is marked "60", it really means 1/60 second. Or 250 would mean 1/250 second.

    Henry Horenstein's "Black & White Photography - A Basic Manual" is excellent - easy to read and apply.

    Start with Part 1 (at the bottom of the page) - http://thepioneerwoman.com/photograp...what-the-heck/ The way she writes it, it's easy to understand.

    Most libraries have gotten rid of their film related photography books. You would do well to check out your local thrift shop (Goodwill, etc.) or used book store.

    Read books, but don't spend too much time on book knowledge...get out there and shoot pictures!

    shoot a roll, process it and look at the results...and, learn how to look at your negs to evaluate your results! Enjoy!!

    This may be a rare case where somebody is brand new to any SLR camera, film or otherwise..... and totally clueless, not even knowing where to start. Nothing wrong with that. Everyone was there at one time.

    If this is the case, it may be the best to find someone, an old timer maybe, to show him how to use it. It can be daunting to read about aperture, shutter speed, etc, etc, etc and try to apply it to the camera in hand. It's SO easy if someone can show him in person.

    I have no idea where in the world he lives but if he is in Central Florida, I'd be glad to do the "old timer" thing for him. I'm sure there are plenty of APUGers that can do the same.
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?
