    I am sorry yes I was using the red eye reduction with the pop up flash. I am in a spot that I can't shut the flash off because it just isn't light enough for that. I am new at this stuff and really am thankful for all the help you can offer.

    thanks again I will try this.The gym is pretty light so hopefully the no flash will work. I have a hard time figuring out the ISO and shutter speed is there a trick to it?

Bubba41, You didn't mention using the built-in pop-up flash that's when you get the "red-eye" and you can set the flash for redeye reduction when it's used.  If you are taking an indoor photo without the flash, if the redeye reduction is on turn it off that would eliminate the zombie or X-men eyes you are describing. randy320sgi

    bubba41,
    Glad to help, you may be able to take photos in lower light better than you think. Try shooting in a different mode if you are now using the automatic. Experiment with the camera, the good thing is you don't have to pay to have film processed to see if what you did worked or not. You can first start with changing your ISO which may be on 100 or 200 now, try bumping it up and you see that the higher the ISO will in some conditions take a photo without the flash, but also the higher the ISO the grainnier the image, then test out the shutter mode, the slower the shutter speed the more light that the lens can gather 1/60th is about as low as you can go hand held without getting blurry shots. You will have to use a tripod fo anything 1/30th or less. Have fun and don't worry you will be taking better and better photos as you get more familiar with your digital camera.

    bubba41,

    The trick is to get used to what each function and mode does and you'll have a better feel for how to use them. Since you mentioned gym you might test out a higher ISO (a little more grain) up to 400 - 600 and adjust your shutter speed to catch the action shots. The right combination will give you some great sports shots. If someone is close enough then the flash would help but might not be appreciated by the athlete esp. on a jump shot. Have fun.

When i take a picture with the flash, it has a yellow tint to it. Why?


Most likely your white balance setting needs to be adjusted. You didn't specify the model of your camera, so I can't tell you exactly how to change it (your manual should say).
Your camera should have several settings:
"A" or "Auto"
"Daylight/Sun"
"Tungsten" or "Indoors" or "Incandescent"
"Fluorescent"

and possibly also:
"Flash"
"Cloudy" or "Shade"

When taking flash pictures, the "Flash" setting should be best. If you don't have a flash setting, then "Daylight" or "Sun" will be the best.

Human eyes adjust quickly and easily to different colors of light, but cameras see light as it is, so indoor light will look yellow, outside bluish, fluorescent greenish, etc. So digital cameras shift the colors in the image to try to make white objects appear white like they would to your eye. But sometimes they mess up and don't get it quite right. That is where the manual white balance settings come in. If you play with these settings, then you will find you can improve the color quality of many of your pictures.

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.

Dryer pilot does not come on


the ignitor or glow coil as it can be also called is not hot enough to ignite. if you can see it and it is orange/red in colour you need to replace it. it has to glow white hot so your eyes can't even look at it.

DSC-H7 camera, getting red eye or white eye spots


First, here is why they are red or white spots:

The red is the reflection of your flash on the retinas of your subjects. The white are generally animal eyes reflecting back.

You will notice this on flash shots only and mostly when you use the zoom. The zoom uses a "narrow" field of view so the light that reflects back is "direct", instrad of at an angle.

The fix: Change the ISO setting (it is set too high). It is probably near the maximum sensitivity (3200?)... set it to 400 or so and try that for a while. 800 is probably the best general setting, but try 400 first.

Try not to use the flash unless you really have to, but only if the subject is less than 12 feet away. If no people are in the picture, you may use the flash for subjects greater than 12 feet.

this should work for you...

I have a Kodak c513 easyshare camera and every photo I take has red eye in it. I was also told that I needed to check my resolution. What is that and how do I do that? Also how do I set flash so photos are...


Resolution has nothing to do with it. Red eye is caused by the flash being close to the camera lens, when the flash fires it reflects light from the persons eye back to the camera lens. Solution is to set your cameras flash setting to "red eye" This setting makes the flash "stutter" to make the eye not reflect the flash back to the camera. The red eye setting can be achieved by repeatedly pressing the flash function button until you see a lightening bolt with an eye icon in your display panel. The other option is to boost your iso to about 800 or 1000 for indoor useage, the problem with this is that the pictures will have a grainy look to them, but the flash will not fire.

Red eye


I know that it's possible to remove red eyes with different software, such as Photoshop. Doesn't take much time. Good luck with that, I don't think there's anyway you can change the way red eyes occur except using the blitz less.

Animal Eyes


I've seen some of those white eyes photos. Some are down right scary. I'm sure you have encountered red-eye when taking flash photos of people. With some animals, it is not red - but white. .... Try to catch the animal looking away from the camera when you take that flash picture. Have someone distract him/her. ............
