The palm tree is a slow shutter "twilight" setting to capture low light levels. Try resetting all functions by turning on the camera then pushing the "reset" button - you'll find it next to the recharge/DC IN socket on the back. Push it with a toothpick or paper clip. If that doesn't correct it, it could be an aperture or shutter problem that's a job for a shop.

    If you've reset all the controls to factory, it sounds like the flash is not charging. Check to see if it'll fire in bright daylight situation. If it does - the flash isn't charging. If it still doesn't work, it probably has a shutter problem.

I have no idea what the symbol is.

I suggest that you check that your memory stick is not locked, not full and is inserted properly into the camera.

Reset the camera (button under the connector flap, below the zoom buttons on the back of the camera)

P72 face focus blurry background


Hl, I'm not sure what shooting options the P72 has. But, even in Auto you should be able to do this (Auto usually picks a wide aperture). The key is to fill the frame (at least 50%) with your subject. So zoom in and focus on the face and then while 1/2 pressing, zoom back out a little. Then fire away. You should get an in-focus subject and slight blurring of the BG. You have to experiment with this. If you fill the frame too much, you might get such a small depth of field that the subject's nose is in-focus but the eyes aren't.

Sony DSC-P72 close up photos


A common problem is that you have some 3.2 Megapixel (MP) and that image is all of 640x480 or 0.3072 M. That means you could move back from the camera, shoot at 3.2 MP then crop out a 640x480 image that may be in focus.
