It seems the only way I can get in-focus pix is to use the flash. there are situations where I do not want to use the flash-IE:at an aquarium where I am taking pix thru glass, or low light situations.
That means you are moving the camera as you press the shutter....The flash is so short that it eliminates your movement. ... Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z6 Digital Camera
Hi--I have a panasonic lumix DMC-FP8, which I bought in May 2010. The camera is great for outdoor landscapes, etc. but I've had problems with low lighting and red eye. The camera has trouble focusing on the subjects, and there are often white spots all over the picture (even though I've cleaned the lens and checked to see if there were scratches or dirt on it). In addition to this, I have the red eye setting on, but I still get really awful red eye in all of my pictures. The camera is still new

I have a Nikon D300. I can't seem to figure out what's wrong, I assume it's a setting issue. In low light situations even with the flash I can't seem to stop action or even properly light things. I have had any kind of issue like this on a camera before. In situations where I should be able to handhold I am using a monopod. I know there is enough light to not have to handhold, I mean I am using the flash. Frankly even with available light this should not be an issue.

I bought a power adapter for the camera, but it doesn't seem to work without batteries in the unit. If I use the batteries alone, I will eventually get a red blinking light at the back of the camera, indicating low battery power, hence the purchase of a power adapter. When using both power adapter and batteries, the red light on the front of the camera is illuminated. The green light on the back of the camera is blinking. The camera seems to work fine while recording video. But why won't th

Focusing Problems I just bought the Canon 20d. I shot a wedding with it two weeks ago, and really liked how it performed in low light. However, I noticed a lot of my photos from the low lit reception came back out of focus. (The outdoor ceremony shots were fine). I noticed 3 issues with the images: 1-The main subject, which often was dead center and took up 1/2 to 2/3 of the frame, was often NOT in focus. Rather, the camera selected some point way off to one side or off in the distance som

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 ... Nikon D5000 Digital Camera

Battery life When I first had this camera, about 3 years ago, the rechargeable batteries I bought seemed to last for ages. But more recently the "low battery warning" has been coming on very shortly after inserting freshly charged batteries. I have tried using ordinary batteries (high powered) but even with these I can only take a few pictures before the warning light comes on. Once the light is on, the camera goes dead after a few more pictures so it's not giving me a false "low battery" warnin

I am using an Olympus E-500. and am trying to use the built in flash, set to one eight or to one sixty fourth of normal output, to trigger an external flash unit. The camera is set to "Vivid", manual, auto focus, and iso 100. From the "manual flash" menu I should be able to select either full, 1/4. 1/16 or 1/64 of the output. However, those choices never light up. I keep cycling through the first two lines of the menu and never reach the third line with the light output options I want. P

Focus There is one problem that I have with this camera - Auto Focus in low lighting and it has really limited manual focus. Outdoors this camera is outstanding, I haven't found any pitfalls outdoors yet. 10x optical zoom plus 2.5" LCD WOW. Although the LCD is littly choppy, but I don't care about that, pictures turn out really gooood. Anyways back to Auto Focus problem. Do any of you have the same problem? Or this is my ability problem? That limited manual focus really bugs me! I'd like to hear
I have similar problem. So I use manual focus (1m,3m,inf) & move camera for finest pix. On AF, the adjustment seem to go past sharpest image point but settles on a fuzzier setting. Is there any place that can make a repair? ... Toshiba PDR-M700 Digital Camera
Panasonic Lumix G1. Viewfinder does not focus when I look through and squeeze shutter. I can get the picture in focus by using AFS which shows the parts which are focused (with green squares), so the photo IS focused when I take it. But I can't see properly what I'm photographing.
You probably changed dioptre adjustment in your camera. There should be a adjustment ring next to the eyepiece. ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7 Digital Camera
I have a Canon Rebel XSi. I'm trying to shoot a photo of my sleeping 2 year old, so the light is obviously low. I have the cameral on manual mode. I used the light meter to obtain my exposure, but when I push the button to take the picture, nothing happens. On the right side of the light meter, there is a blinking green light when I try to take the picture. What am I doing wrong? I'm out of town and I forgot my camera manual; I think I remember something in there about troubleshooting this parti

I am trying to to charge panasonic lumix dmc-zs5 camera battery with it. As soon as I plugged it in showed a red light (power) on the charger. Even after inserted the camera battery the the red light on the power remained but there was no light or indicator for charging. After an hour when I used it in my camera it still was not charged. I could not find any user manual on the net so don't really know how to charge my camera battery.

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

My IR-500 will not focus whether I lock focus or not. When I half depress the shutter & get the green light I press the shutter & then get a severe motion blur. This occurs in all scene modes. It does not happen when using flash. Please advise -jim
Your shutter is staying open too long. Do you have it set on "bulb" or "time exposure" or something like that? It doesn't happen on flash pics because the flash is so short, it freezes the action. ... Olympus i:robe IR-500 Digital Camera

She set the focus and when she releases the shutter the lens automatically moves back and forth. Only happens at night.
