Had it a week; poured over the manual, focusing on EXPOSURE basics...use in Manual mode, Aperature, Shutter speed etc. I want to know how to control the thing before I just let Auto do it's thing.

So, today, first time I was actually USING it when the chips were down...at my son's Special Olympics Snow Shoe event.

I was late, rushing, barely got to the finish line before he did and was in auto mode...The photos are under-exposed, probably due to the averaging light meter looking at overcast snow.

I recognized the problem, but could NOT change the exposure to spot or center weighted! Pushing the exposure method button near the shutter release does NOTHING. I've gone through every menu twice. Nikon ought to talk to Apple for a little UI advice!

Where the heck do you enable that button?

Thanks. I'll upload some of the dark photos soon for advice on how to fix 'em, but for now, I'd be happy to just figure this out.

PS: He got two gold and one Silver medal!
