Having problems with your Sony Alpha DSLR-A100 Digital Camera ?

Indoor shots such as a wedding

\015 What settings do I set my camera to get a clearer picture. Right now, the pictures come out yellowish and sometimes too dark.\015

Answers :

Have you thought about using the flash??? In low light you may not be able to hold the camera steady enough to take pictures without using a tripod.
\015\012If you want to change the colour ballance of the camera, look in the user manual. It is a little bit involved. I would recomend using the flash instead.

I have a Canon 400d and have recently photographed a wedding. Most of my normal work is for a picture agency which I have been supplying with work for the last four years. I recently had some photos rejected due to excessive noise. The photos were taken on a setting of 200asa which in the past have been ok. The wedding I recently shot, the photos were again very noisy and due to the weather all the shots were taken inside at a hotel. I would say the majority of the shots were at least o

I have a Canon 5D and a 430EX flash. When shooting pictures my flash will delay way to long before I can shoot another picture with flash. One picture is good and 3 are dark. My flash card is a CompactFlash 4GB Hi-speed 40 so I dont understand why it take so long for the flash to go off between shots. Giving an example of time, during a wedding the bride and grooms walks out "good shot" then the rest of the party with about 5 pews between them and I cannot get the whole wedding because the flash

Blury images Re: Sony Cyber-shot 6mp (DSC-H2) Our outdoor images are beautiful but nearly all of our indoor images are blury/shaky making the camera unusable. We use the Auto Adjustment setting both indoors and outdoors since we are mainly taking candid photos of our kids/family members. We reviewed the menus & manual but we can't figure it out. Is the ''Super Steady Shot'' function turned off? Can I return it to the factory setting? TY in advance.

I recently bought a Canon powershot SX200is and I was using it to photograph my 4 year old grandson's birthday party, however a lot of the shots were blurred, these were mainly taken indoor, when I checked the camera settings I found the speed settings were ranging from 1/60sec to 1/6sec. I was shooting in P and AV, however I then switched back to automatic (auto) and took shots with the full range of options and still found some shots blurred, I think the problem is, the camera is trying to foc

I don't know your camera but on my fuji there is a setting that changes the "film speed". If it is set too low such as 100 or 200, it will make the exposure take too long causing blurry photos. The higher the number, the faster it is. Wor ... Canon Digital Cameras

Red Eye Both my wife and I have this camera. We have the red eye reduction function set but almost every indoor shot of people has red eye. I have been told that if this function is set properly it will flash twice quickly when taking a shot. Our cameras only flash once. Any suggestions?

There's two ways to reduce/eliminate the red-eye with your A570IS cameras. The first is at the time of exposure, by ensuring the red-eye reduction function is activated via the shooting menu (see page 28 of the manual). In shooting mode, press "menu" ... Canon PowerShot A570 IS Digital Camera

Nikon 18-200mm VR lens doesn't seem to want to AF focus at full focal length 200mm distance. I bought this lens second hand on ebay and am not certain if there is a problem with this lens. If I try to shoot a picture at full focal length indoors it seem to be fine or relatively close shots but out side, full distance shots it wont work.The focal ring is at full focus and just turns with no change in the view finder but it needs more.

I have a Canon Powershot SD550 Digital Elph IXUS 750 and last sunday I shot some photos outdoor at the equestrin center, but when I went indoors I found I didn't have a flash operating either on automatic or on manual, and I thought they had a mechanism to prevent flashes so the horses wouldn't be spooked.

All indoor pictures look grainy or blurry. There are a lot of noise in my photos, and it really seems to have difficulty capturing moving people as the intelligent auto often chooses the night portrait scene for indoor people shots. In the manual it recommends using a tripod and having the subject stand still. I am trying to photograph active toddlers (18 months and 3 years old). I have found switching to sports helps sometimes.

I have a Canon PowerShot A95 that has provided very good service for four years. But recently, the color and images are very distorted in some photos - faded purple in color with the image blurred or melted, sometimes icicle-like or stalactite-like in appearance. This occurs in both outdoor and indoor shots. These distortions do not occur in every shot, but have increased in frequency. This is the only problem I have ever had with this camera.

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. ... Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera

"busy" Error Yet another Canon 20D question. I have been shooting both film and digital at weddings for the last two weeks. I have been very impressed with the 20D (I shot Nikon for 22 years). However, I have had my share of camera errors on the 20D. Lately, it shuts down in the middle of shooting and the LCD panel reads "busy." The busy error does not go away when turning off the camera. At first I assumed that the buffer was maxed, but I'm only shooting in single shot mode. Eventually, after m

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

I have a Canon Power Shot A720. Outdoor photos are beautiful. Indoor photos are always grainy/blurry...a lot of noise. I have tried the ISP feature but there are only two choices... 1. Auto or 2. High ISO Auto Either setting, the indoor photos are grainy. Further, there are times when my flash will not work. It won't work on Auto setting or when I try and "force flash" it. No flash and the photo will not allow a picture to even be taken. Any suggestions? Thanks
