I apologize for the very dumbed down questions but I am extremely new and want to get an understanding.

There is a button on the top of my camera with 35 on it, what is this? and there is a dial with a guard on one side of it below the button and I'm not sure what this is as well.


Again I apologize for the dumb and vague question but any help would be appreciated.

Thank You.

The 35 could be a slow motion function of 35 frames per second.


Where is the second button located?

The 35 button would be to lock in high speed (35 frames per second) for slow-motion effects. Pictures I just googled show it as 32 though - maybe yours is a high speed model? B)

The dial below is the aperture selector, set to A it's automatic, set to M you can change the aperture manually. Turned all the way to C and the aperture is closed.

35 sound odd. Are you sure it's not 36?
