This accessory allows me to enjoy my Z650 even more! I can capture more information in close up shots as well as large landscape scenes.

Taking pictures during the day (I have few problems) At night.... no sense in even lugging the camera around!!! Very disappointed!! I feel that 450. This camera is great for the beginning photographer all the way to the advanced photographer. It has so many features including video.

I have been using this camera for years now. It has great zoom ability and it is easy to use. Picture quality was good, camera was easy to use Camera has stopped working! Zoom and clear still shots Lighting conflict and blurred action shots

This is a generally good camera but would benefit from more thought on the package. Excellent photo quality overall. Phenomenal adjustability. Slow to focus and night focus is atrocious. Begs for a manual focus for night shots

I bought this wide angle lens to expand my DX7590 and make it more fun to shoot picture all around and for any occasion. Form high zoom to wide angle.

Aperture Priority Mode (A)
Use Aperture priority mode to control aperture and exposure compensation. The camera automatically sets the shutter speed for proper exposure. Aperture priority mode is primarily used to control depth of field (the range of sharpness). NOTE: The aperture setting may be affected when using optical zoom.
Shutter Priority Mode (S)
Use Shutter priority mode to control the shutter speed and exposure compensation. The camera automatically sets the aperture for proper exposure. Shutter priority mode is primarily used to prevent blur when your subject is moving. To prevent camera shake, use a tripod for slow shutter speeds.

Manual Mode (M)

Use Manual mode for the highest level of creative control. You set the aperture and shutter speed; exposure compensation changes as a result of those settings. To prevent camera shake, use a tripod for slow shutter speeds. Use the jog dial to select the modes and settings in PASM mode (see page 21). Press the Menu button to change other settings (see page 31). 19

PASM Screen Options

Mode setting
Aperturealso referred to as f-stop, controls the size of the lens opening, which determines the depth of field. Larger aperture settings keep both foreground and background sharp, good for landscapes and well-lit conditions. Smaller aperture settings make the foreground sharp and background blurry, good for portraits and low-light conditions. The highest and lowest aperture settings may be affected when using optical zoom. Shutter speedcontrols how long the Aperture shutter stays open. The shaking hand icon Shutter speed warns of slow shutter speeds. To prevent camera shake, use a tripod for slow Exposure compensation shutter speeds. Exposure Compensationcontrols how much light enters the camera, good for controlling backlit scenes. If the picture is too light, decrease the setting; if its too dark, increase the setting.

(P,A,S, or M)

Settings Apply Only in PASM Mode
Settings you change while in PASM mode apply only to pictures taken while in PASM mode. This applies to settings made on the PASM screen and also through the Menu screens. For example, if you change the Color Mode to Sepia while in PASM mode, all other still modes (auto, sport, portrait, night) retain the default setting of Color. The settings, including Flash, are maintained for PASM mode even when you change modes or turn off the camera. This is the place to set and keep your custom settings. NOTE: Use Reset (see page 40) to return PASM mode to the default settings.
