I seem to be unable to select a shutter speed below 1/4 of a second on my X30. Now, before you point me to previous threads, I've been reading these on this forum before joining. The frustrating thing is, that despite using M or S settings on the dial, and fixing ISO at 100, and trying various apertures, it is still not possible to go beyond 1/4 of a second, while the manual, as many of you know suggests shutter speeds all the way up to 30 seconds. Similarly, I've only been able to use my flash (manually popped up with the latch) once in a pre-programmed setting. However, I cannot figure out any setting combinations going through the various options on the dial, etc. that will make the flash actually flash when popped up. So, inevitably on both counts my question is, which settings and restrictions exactly do I need to use or obey in order to take long exposure photographs and use force flash on the X30? Please forgive my ignorance. This is my first manual camera and I may be missing very obvious things!
