      Hi sir Miguel! Congrats sa bago nyong camera! Manual mode ba ang gamit mo? Sa pag adjust ng shutter makikita mo ung dalawang number sa lower part ng screen. Normally, ung icon sa kanila is an up arrow. Press mo ung up arrow and ma-highlight sila. Sa kaliwa ung shutter speed, sa kanan na may Fx.x ay ung Aperture.

      Magkakaroon ng up/down arrow sa shutter speed and left/right arrow sa aperture. So kung gusto mo bilisan ung shutter press up a few times para tumaas ung value. Ung aperture naman if possible mababa number para mas sensitive sa light.

      Para sa picture ng mga tao ang magandang shutter speed is 30 (1/30 sec) pataas. Pero minsan di maiiwasan na mas mababa sa 30 kung hindi madilim ang kuha.

      Siguraduhin mo nalang ung ISO mo nasa AUTO sa ibang modes para ung camera na mag-calculate ng brightness para sayo. Ako suggestion ko mag shoot ng Aperture mode (A) and laging low F number gamit ko. Auto ung ISO and bahala na ung camera sa shutter speed. Pero kung kulang parin at blurry parin subukan mo shutter priority.

      Anyway, marami pa pwedeng gawin para bumilis ung shot. Minsan naka i-Auto lang ako dahil medyo magaling ung computer mag-adjust ng lighting and color settings. Subukan mo nalang muna settings makukuha mo rin. Pag gusto mo ma-test may simulation site dito:

      Balitaan mo nalang ako sir! Good luck =)

    I’m Gemma Jones from We have a suggestion which we hope will be useful for your web site.

    We may be able to offer you some free of charge content for your web site, in return for a link back to our site.

    We have a dedicated team of professional writers. We can have them (at our expense) research and write some content specifically for you to publish on your web site.

    You have complete control over the subject and focus for each piece; the content will be unique to your web site and there are definitely no costs or other commitments for you. All we would ask is that for each piece of content you agree with us, you allow us to include one simple text link to my site within the content.

    If you approve the content on your site , will provide social media promotion and drive traffic to the article (building your traffic and social signals).

    Please let me know if this would potentially work for you and we can come back to you with further details.

    Thanks and kind regards
    Gemma Jones


    Removal is probably the wrong word – you are not on any kind of mailing list because we identify and approach sites individually. However, I really do not want to upset anyone by making contact and if I have done so, I`m really sorry. I am always trying to improve our approach. Given that we have other sites, if you could reply with REMOVE in the subject line and (if possible) your reason, I will ensure that I learn from it!

    My name is Earl Ray, I’m in process of creating an infographic on “smartphones in our lives”. I’ve already completed research on this, and I am close to the completion of this infographic. I’d like to get this infographic published in your website (, and at the bottom of infographic I’ll include the following line:

    “Co-produced by (Your Logo) & (My Logo)”

    So, by promoting this infographic both websites will get exposure. At the end of post I will also create an embedded code with the link to (, so whenever the infographic will be shared on the web then both websites will get a backlink + exposure.

    Please let me know if you’re interested in publishing it, so that I can get back to you after completing it.

    I’ll be waiting for your response.

    Kind Regards,
    Earl Ray
