Having problems with your Nikon D5000 Digital Camera ?

I have never used a slr camera, what setting do you need for inside fotos at a reception at night (low light) or good lighting. and what setting do i use outside sunny where i do not have the white cloudy fog in the foto. ISO, AF, shutter speed, i dont know what to do..


Answers :

Indoors it's always better to use a flash. Your camera will switch to proper settings automatically on auto mode. Indoors you can use ISO 400, 1/125s, f5.6 (all this depends on light and distance). Outside ISO 100, 1/250s, f8.
With camera's auto-mode you don't have to bother. Have smaller aperture (bigger f-value) for more depth and shorter exposure (bigger number on shutter speed - it reads 1/speed) for stopping the motion.
With some practise you find out the proper settings for each situation. This has taken me roughly some 30-odd years and still I get surprised almost daily.
Digital camera is better than a 'normal' film camera since you see the results right away and can change the parameters in a whiff and takea new picture. Bad ones you can delete.

Bright pictures I have had my Sony Cyber Shot (DSC-S650) for about 6 mo. I have tried all different settings for the flash but almost all of my pictures come out with the person very white and bright.

Canon SD600 I used my camera to take pictures of fireworks and I noticed that afterwards, all the photos I was taking outside in daylight were turning white. If I take pictures in the dark, they turn out perfect, and low light pictures are fairly normal except anywhere where there is a light source (lamp, window, etc) the color is streaky and orange. This particular camera has no way to adjust the aperture settings and I am considering taking it to a shop to have it looked at. Is there anything

Pictures a very overexposed. Inside I can shoot without a flash at 400 ISO and they come out right. Outside they turn white. Also the shutter speed won't register. I can set it at 125 or even 500 and it comes out at about 1/30 or 1/60 of a second. Lower shutter speeds are actually lower. This happened a day after I cleaned my sensor. Could that be the problems?
