    I am overwhelmed with all the settings on my DSLR camera. I end up using the automatic settings and while they do an OK job it would be fantastic to be more creative with shots.

    My thoughts echo Michelle – I was ready to say the most overwhelming thing is all the settings available and how I wind up using automatic instead, then I read her post and “Ditto” seems the only comment. Obviously, I could use the camera help…

    I don’t know what setting to put it on other than automatic in the heat of the moment or perfect shot. Panic sets in, and I just go to automatic.

    For me, the hardest part is remembering all of the settings for the shots I want.

    I have a big beautiful DSLR and, while I’ve taken some great pictures, it’s been Divine intervention resulting in those.
    There are a ton of features on this thing, but being a busy woman I don’t have too much time to read through the manual and practice with it. This frustrates me, as I know there are some awesome pix I can take if I knew a few simple things to do. Please help!

    My biggest problem getting the camera off automatic is action shots. I know if I leave it on auto, I will get something, but as the grand kids get more involved in sports it would be nice to know how to catch the action shot.

    I struggle with getting the shutter speed right for what I’m shooting.

    Every time I think I have my DSLR figured out…I blow it. I’m determined to use my manual settings. So sometimes I lose a shot, but at least I keep learning!

    I get overwhelmed by having to think and compose and try to capture the shot when time is of the essence, when things are going quickly. Or when I realize I had changed a setting, white balance for example, and then forgot to change it back when I’m in new conditions,

    I leave everything on auto because I’m not sure what to do. I also have a slight tremor so I sometimes get blurry photos. I find everything overwhelming!

    I truly find everything overwhelming with my DSLR. I have had it for almost a year, and have tried reading the manual. I am such a visual type learner though, and really need someone to guide me through some of the settings and such. I know I can get so much more from my camera but so far I have only had the courage to go on Autofocus.

    Even if I have a pretty good idea what settings to use I usually don’t have time to make the changes etc because I mostly take photos of my constantly fast moving grandchildren so I end up putting camera back to automatic.

    I don’t think that I have anything new to add to the “frustrations” already mentioned. I do pretty good when I have time to stop and think, but when pressed with an active scene, my mind goes blank. I have general understandings of aperture and shutter speed, but still struggle with figuring out how to get them to work together, especially when in manual. I would also like to get a better idea of how exposure compensation works. In another group, I see a lot of the accomplished photographers using it, but so far, it eludes me…

    I am trying to get of Auto, but the settings are just a bit much for me to comprehend at the moment. Would love to have a cheat sheet of sorts, or fairy dust! lol..

    Definitely the settings, especially knowing how, when, what and which to use where! 🙂

    I guess I’m just like everyone else here! I have a hard time getting out of auto mode. I have actually figured out when to use the flash and not to, to get the optimal shots of kids on stage! Taking long distance shots are nearly impossible!!

    I’m with everyone else….all the settings and knowing when to use which setting and remembering to do it when I need a quick shot

    I get overwhelmed with metering, especially when to use different metering settings.
