Having problems with your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W1 Digital Camera ?

Does the W1 have infrared abilities?


\015 Who knows if the W1 has a night mode and infrared abilities? The manual does not mention it, but the manual is not too good anyway.... Maybe there is a way to do IR photography with the W1 ?\015\012If there is no NIGHTMODE, can I still use the ND filters to take IR photos?\015\012Never tried it and am interested in doing it to begin with ....\015\012Thank you kindly for replying with pertinent info...\015

Answers :

Because the filter blocks out visible light, meaning it is like taking a picture at night. It takes the camera a long time to gather enough light for the image to appear. My Nikon took approx. 2 sec with a IR filter in place, and without a tripod or in a breeze the pics were blurry - always.
Because the camera has a fixed, built-in IR BLOCKING filter, positioned in front of the sensor, thus it takes a long time for enough IR to make a photo, to get through the blocker. The Sonys with Nightshot allow this IR blocking filter to move out of the way.

Dust Orbs I am having serious problems with "Dust Orbs" appearing in pictures. Mostly indoor pictures. These things are ruining my pictures. Are they caused by the Infrared Beam that the camera uses to focus? Or is something else wrong with my camera? Do ALL digital cameras have this problem with dust? Do DSLR have same problem? How come these dust orbs only appear with Digital Cameras, and not film? I need a digital camera that works indoors. Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance....


Many digital cameras have this problem, though it has nothing to do with the camera being digital. It is small specks of dust in the air being illuminated. You will never see this problem without a flash.\015\012\015\012The reason you see it on digit ... Kodak EasyShare DX7440 Digital Camera

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
