    I recently got the coolpix 4500... and i was playing around with shutter and aperture... i took a pic of my fan spinning with auto and then went into manual and put those same values but the result came out really dark and did not get the 3 blades as I had gotten in auto mode. does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

    you might have messed up when you thought you used the same settings

    OR , on manual mode, you might have put the fstop at a high number which gave you a darker pic.

    try to use shutter speed 1000+ , ISO 100-400 (depending on how much light you have in the room), and a low fstop number (f/4.5 instead of f/8)

    see how that works for you :)
