I knew I couldn't change the aperture without SDM but was hoping I could with it.

Even at wide-angle (because it varies with focal length) your camera has an aperture equivalent to f20 on a 35mm camera.Not being able to control depth-of-field with aperture is therefore not a problem.Just the opposite, for small sensor camcorders people make devices to reduce the depth-of-field.You can control exposure by swinging a neutral density filter into or out of position.The image EXIF data records that as an aperture change, even though it is not.It just describes how much the sensor illumination is changed by.
REALLY helpful, sh1981! Thanks so much!! I read through the SDM and felt a bit more ...
I've been manually messing around with my camera for the past month or so. Some of the things you've mention I've stumbled upon by myself, like the Vivid color option for instance. Some of it though I haven't. I knew I couldn't change the aperture without SDM but was hoping I could with it. I guess not. ...
I'm not sure if you can answer this question or not but I'll ask to see -- if you cannot then perhaps someone else might be able to...
One last question...I kept pressing buttons and whatnot in order to get the options on the camera to change but I felt as though I was mostly dumb-lucking it. Are there actual "instructions" for how to select the various options or even what they all mean?
Thanks again so much! I'm going to keep a copy of your post in a Word file I've been keeping so I can refer back to again as I better learn my head from a hole in the ground. :-D
In fact, in the last five hours such a balloon took-off from Las Vegas, avoided Area 51 restricted airspace
Well, it did a lot more than that one.
May I try it?
