So I read about the weird hoops you have to jump through to use the little scroll wheel on the back to adjust aperture, exposure, shutter speed etc. However mine won't work, or at least I think it won't. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong which is why I'm here. Can someone who owns a G10 walk me through adjusting those three things? Thanks for any and all help
Ok the scroll wheel is a bit difficult to push depending on your fingers.
But if you press it and hold it for a few secondds no matter what mode you are in it will pop up with a list where you can select your Mode.
You can ONLY adjust shutter speed, exposure and aperture in Manual mode.
Once you are in manual mode you press the button and in the top right corner it will highlight in orange which you are adjusting.
from the Manual mode screen you can also adjust zebras and manual focus.
Anyway with the button you press it and highlight what you want to change and then use the scroll wheel to adjust up and down.
It'd be easier if I made a video doing it but I'm too busy right now an I'd have to use my S95 to film it.
I hope this helps, if you have any more questions I'll try and help but it's pretty easy to use once you get the hang of it.
I actually don't bother with the scroll wheel any more it's just too fiddley to use so I just use the LCD now.
This needs a real button for bigger fingers and a beefier scroll wheel, one that preferably is side to side rather than up and down.
