Having problems with your Fuji FinePix Digital Cameras ?

Can you help me with the right settings to take great photos in n school hall for example with bad lighting took some photos but all were so dark even with the flash on please i have a fijifilm s2980


\015 Please im new to bridge cameras and the setting of all the scenes are confusing\015

Answers :

First, you need to turn the flash off. Unless you're up on the stage, you're going to be too far away for the flash to do any good.

Set the ISO as high as you can. This will incur digital noise, but usually a noisy photo is better than no photo. Use the Sports setting to get the shutter speed as fast as possible. Even so the shutter speed will be slow so you need to hold the camera steady. If you can't use a tripod, brace the camera against a wall or on the back of a chair or some other such thing.

Even with the above, don't set your hopes too high. Compact and bridge cameras with their smaller sensors will have more problems with low light than digital SLRs with their larger sensors. It's simply physics: smaller sensors gather less light than larger sensors.

I was taking photos over the weekend with my Olympus E-500 and the eyepiece viewfinder got darker than usual. I was using a promaster 5750DX flash. Even without the flash, the eyepiece viewfinder has remained dark. Also, I reset all settings to the default settings and now when the built in flash pops up, there are a series of three "beeps" and the camera tries to focus. I cannot get it to take a photo however. I also pushed the button for the sensor cleaning today. Could this have screwed u

Nikon D40 pictures taken but too dark even in AUTO mode with flash on a bright day. also, some days ago I had the Shutter release error message while taking some photos.
