No Dave, is the thumb-dial or rear dial. In manual mode I cant change speed or aperture...
Only shut in automatic mode...

Hi Santoyo.

Can't you be a Little more specific?

With the exposure Wheel set in P,S,A or M will there be no changing of aperture and/or shutterspeed when operating the command dial?

Will the shutter release?

Will the shutter release in all the Automatic exposure modes (Green Auto, Scenes and effects)? And will the exposure be right?

You are using an AF-S lens with no aperture ring? Using a lens with aperture ring in MF, it has to be locked in highest aperture for the command dial to work. (And for the shutter to release.)
