I suggest picking up the book "Understanding Exposure" by Bryan Peterson to help you better understand how to shoot using the manual mode.
^ This...

I find some of the advice in this thread absolutely amazingly inaccurate for a photography website. The book Jim advocated is excellent.

As mentioned, camera is not a factor in the min/max aperture size, lens is. It's also a good bet that if the lens dont go below F4, it's not going higher than F16 or so. Cheaper lenses or lower end lenses have a smaller aperture range because quite honestly they are meant for beginners who dont shoot in manual and done need as wide a range of apertures.
