Do you not have an owner's manual? I have no idea how to do that, but here's the owner's manual, have at it.

Read the manual, kindly provided by Senorcarnival.

I do. Problem was is that it diddnt work and it seemed clunky and hard to do. It was on a friends camera and neither of us figured it out. So i figured id ask and see if anyone had any tips...

I don't have a D50 in front of me (a number of Canons tho) but a quick look at page 44-45 of the user manual do not make your situation look that difficult.

Cheers

If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!

From kenrockwell.com:

Exposure Mode Dial (Left side): I use "P" for program auto exposure. In this mode the camera chooses the f/stop and shutter speed for you. If I want to use different apertures or shutter speeds I rotate the rear command dial, which selects alternate combinations of f/stops and shutter speeds which give the same exposure. Nikon calls this "Program Shift." A "*" is added next to the P on the top LCD to let you know you've chosen a different combination for exposure.

If you want to use only one aperture or one shutter speed then use S or A mode. If you want to set it the hard way, use M, manual, mode.

Aperture Button (icon of a camera iris, this is also the same button as the compensation button): Hold this and spin the rear control knob to change the aperture setting an Manual (M) exposure mode.
