I don't know that model specificly, but the "blueish" is most likly due to florecent lighting, you should look for an option called White Balance, if it's in an auto mode you should be fine.

The other thing that would cause it is your flash, being indoors you might need it, but try turning it off and just keep a steady hand and the camera in an auto mode should adjust for the rest.

Hi.

It could be over exposure or maybe it is set to indoor or night settings.. Try setting it to automatic or to "outdoor" when you go outside and then take a picture.

My canon powershot s3 IS is taking really dark pictures. The only decent pictures I can take with it are outside in sunlight. Pics indoors come out dark and grainy. I flip up the flash, but most of the...


This is not an answer. The S3 normally does not produce dark pictures, and I have seen this issue before. It has to do with a setting somewhere on that camera that needs to be adjusted. I wish I knew what that setting was/is as my wife's camera has recently started doing this ...

View looks normal then image comes out very bright


Your point n shoot camera has an ISO adjustment in the menu. Be sure that is set to no more than 400 indoors and no more than 100 outdoors.

If it has something called exposure Value or Ev, set that to zero.

Or, if you really want to see if the camera is not working properly, set it to the green auto mode and take a picture. If in auto mode, it still comes out over-exposed there is probably a problem with the camera.

Indoor sports pictures


For sports photography, and especially indoors, you really need to be looking at a digital SLR camera. To freeze that sort of motion you need to be looking at a shutter speed of around 1/200 sec or less.
Most compacts won't do this as the light through the small lenses is a lot less than with an SLR. I've just looked at the sports mode on my wife's DMC-TZ5 and it doesn't even tell me anything about shutter speeds or aperture sizes, it's all automatically controlled by the camera.
The only way you would be able to make any difference with your camera is to increase the ISO setting to the highest possbile setting (1600 on the TZ5). The will reduce the blurring somewhat, but will also introduce some noise and graininess into your photos.
See how you get on, if not good enough I strongly recommend you hire a digital SLR for weekend and see the difference it would make - but you would also need a decent lens and this is where SLRs get very expensive!
Good luck
