    It's a 9.1 megapixel camera. Under image size, should I always leave it on 9m or should I use 3:2 which is 8m. I would think I should leave it on 9m but wanted to see what you all thought. Also, when I use aperture priority mode to blur the background, I have a hard time getting it to work. My camera will only go to f8. Sorry for the noob question but I'm trying to fully understand my camera so I can get the best picture possible.

    Thanks!

    Unless you want 3:2, use 9MP. As for aperture, f8 won't give you a very blurred background. On dSLRs, people generally use f2.8 or f4. I don't think you can do anything about it since the min on your camera is f8.

    If you want the largest aperture on your camera, you should have it at f/2.7. f/8 will give you relatively in focus backgrounds. You should read up on the relationship between aperture, shutter speed, and ISO and how they interact with each other.
