Sadly, the feature's name is misleading. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that it's wrong, if not an outright lie. Turning this option on just enables you to use exposure compensation — it doesn't let you do anything actually "manual". If you enable this option, the ... menu at the lower right of the screen gains a +/- icon, as typically indicates exposure ...


Overexposed and underexposed photos are results of not exposing your scenes correctly. When you use high or low shutter speeds, you have to change the aperture and ISO, as well! If you raise up the shutter speed, means that less light will enter the sensor, so you have to change the aperture or the ISO or both of them. An aperture of f8 lets less light to ...


Shutter speed is one of the things that control aspects of your image, primarily in your case it is effecting how much light is let into the lens. In manual mode you have to adjust all of your settings yourself as manual implies. So when you are using these shutter speeds you are not compensating for the other settings and that is why. Experiment with ...


When taking a photograph, the image isn't created immediately, but over time. A higher shutter speed provides less exposure to the light, and thus the resulting image will be darker than a slower shutter speed that allows greater exposure, if all settings are the same. This can be compensated by making your camera more sensitive to light (raising your ISO, ...


It sounds like you don't understand exposure. If you change to an all manual mode, then its expecting you to adjust shutter speed, aperture, and ISO all in concert - 'manually'. If you set a faster shutter speed, you'll need to raise your ISO or open your aperture more to adjust for the fact that you're letting in less light. The same with a lower shutter ...


That green dot is your focus aid. It comes on steady when you are in focus -it's to help you focus manually. In the old days when cameras were all manual focus, the viewfinder had a "split image" center or a "grain magnifier" in the center to help with focusing. Modern auto-focus cameras don't have that aid, so, unless you have good eyes, you find that ...


If it is the green dot on the left hand side, it is the focus indicator. It is possible you are using an aperture that is too small for the camera to provide focus confirmation or that the camera is unable to achieve focus for some other reason. More detail is available on page 22, 36 and 40 in your manual.
