Alexisalejan,

well first how far away from the stage will you be?
will you be using available light or a flash unit?
shutter speed and f-stop depend on the light source and film speed. (iso )
the faster the film the less you have to use flash, the lower the f-stop the less depth of field you have, the kind of flash is important, most flash units are good for only around 20 ft.
i would use a high speed film and not use flash. flash will kill any colored lights. try to keep the f-stop at least f/8 and the shutter speed no less than 1/60 sec. have fun.

I just loaded my new Fujifilm instax 210 for the first time with the correct film, loaded properly, and the prints are coming out black!


Well, black prints on an instant, or any camera, mean that they're unexposed. So, there are a few things to check - but in your case all will probably mean losing your remaining photos.

First, when you loaded the film, did you remove, or did the camera spit out, the initial black cardboard leader? If not, this is the source of your problem. This piece must come off the film pack first otherwise nothing else is going to work.

If that came out and you're still not getting photos, you're going to need to verify that you're both using the camera properly, and that the camera is functioning properly.

You'll need to be sure that you're getting enough light to get a good photo - darkness isn't going to give a good picture, but in some situations with some high speed films, neither is too bright of a condition. I've had this problem with my polaroid camera. The camera can't compensate for an extreme high-speed film and bright sunlight so it's not even giving an exposure. Don't ask me why, but it happens. If there's an option to change settings for outdoors/indoors, try that.

If that's also not your situation, you'll need to find a way to verify that the camera's shutter is actually opening and working properly. That's easier said than done, but if the other two situations don't help, feel free to contact for further assistance.

I have a Panasonic Lumix T27 and my photos at night parties and concerts always turn out dark and terrible. Can you please tell me the correct settings to rectify this problem and for fast taking shutter...


At night and at concerts, the light level is low. If your camera is on auto, it will try to fire the flash. It's only effective for about 8 feet. Anything farther away than that will be dark. In these instances, it's best to turn off the flash, set the ISO to a higher setting, and set the white balance for tungsten lighting. You'll need to hold the camera steady but you should get better shots.

Yellow cast to indoor pictures, when I take pictures at my kids baskteball games and other indoor events, concerts, etc, the picture has a yellow tone to it, like the light is not sufficient, but it is...


Hello,

This is most likely the White Balance, if the pictures look yellow under artificial light.

I cannot find a manual online so I do not know if you can set the white balance yourself.
If you can, set it to artificial light. Remember to set it back for normal shooting.

You might like to try the Indoor Scene Mode, this should set it for you.

Hope this helps.

What would be the very best settings on the DMC-TZ5 camera for an indoor rock concert?


Without flash the DMC TZ5 still does well. The photo has a good level of detail. It also has a natural look to it. Once again there is that bit more colour in the shot than I am used to seeing.

The way Panasonic manage the ISO settings is a little different to other brands. With the DMC TZ5 you set the maximum ISO rating you wish to use and then the camera is intelligent to work out the actual setting. This tends to produce better results than with other brands in most situations.

Hope helped.

Any suggestions as to what setting I should use at an indoor concert? I tried several different ones and none of them seemed to work. They either came out blurry or dark. Thanks! Kim


Indoor concerts are difficult with a point and shoot camera. You'll need to set a high ISO. You need to be rock steady (a tripod or monopod is recommended). The white balance should be "tungsten". Turn off the flash.

Filming indoor concert dark lighting


only if engaged!

Just remember this..
there are things called STOPs F8 F2 F12 F16 etc larger the number smaller the hole ( aperture) Smaller the number larger the aperture. in low light you need to have a bigger aperture.

So F8 is a good all rounder but you might need F4 depending on just how dark it is.. you will need to do some tests prior to filming so check it out at home ahead of time

Z740 cannot focus on long-distance indoor shots

Concert photos


Not really possible with most cameras. Set the ISO to the highest setting and turn off the flash. This is the best you can do. Professional cameras that can shoot at ISO 3200-5200 are about the only cameras that can take that type of shot. Most pocket cameras do not have ISO above 1000.

Good luck!

Blurry indoor results- using flash


Built in flash units on digital cameras are only meant to be used out to a distance of 6-12 feet. When taking photos of events ie graduations, sporting events, concerts you need to do two things. 1). Change the ISO setting on your camera. This is the same as the old film speed ratings the higher the number the more sensitive the camera becomes. try ISO 1600 or above in low light. 2) You have a mode setting, set it for the type of lighting that is in the space you are in, incandescent, flourescent or whatever, it's easy to do. and finally 3) Turn off your flash! When your flash is on your camera closes up the aperature and takes the picture at a higher rate of speed in anticipation of reflected light off of nearby objects, so your pictures will be darker and blurrier with the flash on.
Even high grade professional flashes only work out to 20-30 feet so they won't help you. Read your cameras manual on taking pictures in low light conditions. It will give you all of the above in great detail. You have a great camera but you need to learn how it works, don't give up on it.

Best settings for a concert w/Canon Powershot Pro1?


A few settings:
Set the ISO to 400. Set the light balance to TUNGSTEN... that will make the colors accurate.
and then set the dial to P and turn your flash OFF.
then when taking photos, be sure to hold the camera VERY STILL. movements are magnified while zooming so be patient.
Also take alot of pictures ... it's better to take alot and then be able to pick the real good ones and toss out the lousy ones..
Also, be nice to those nearby by turning the MUTE to ON in the menu...this turns off the beeps and clicks... You can also turn off REVIEW... and keep the display closed. This will make taking pictures quicker because you're not waiting for the display to review each shot.

Have fun...
