The circle of light is almost certainly a reflection from either the flash, a lamp, the sun, or some other source of light since it only occurs with glasses. Try to eliminate possible sources for the reflected light. If you find that the flash is causing the problem, then the camera should be set to eliminate the flash going off. You can do that by selecting "no flash" if there is enough natural light. You many need to use the largest aperture and a tripod because low light will require long exposures, and any shaking will blur the photo.

The auto focus on my Sony Cybershot DSC-W35 is working i guess because the most shots that i take come out blurred... Can anyone help me with a quick solution because i need my cam urgently!!


THE TROUBLE WITH AUTO FOCUS ... is that it doesn't work well under the following conditions:
  • When the subject is not in the centre of the picture (particularly when there are moving objects in the background)
  • In low light conditions
  • If there is a bright light behind the subject (e.g. a window)
  • When the subject is bright (e.g. a car with its head lamps on)
  • When the subject is of low contrast - walls, the sky
  • If the subject is made up of fine repetitive patterns
  • If the subject is behind vertical bars or a chain link fence
  • When another subject passes between the camera and the point of interest

Exposure


Is your lens clean? was the subject extensively backlit, more than the rest? Half of photography is finding a location with even, pretty lighting. If lack of experience is your issue, check out this page: http://www.darjanpanic.com/photography/photography-lighting-knowledge-the-key-to-good-photos/
Otherwise... D80s are just... quirky. If it's a serious issue, send it into nikon - it costs all of 10 dollars to do so for a quote. Good luck. :)

Blue Hue


On a digicam, autofocus works by looking for areas of contrast in the image you are framing. So if you are taking a picture of people (who usually have little contrast) and there is something in the frame (such as a building in the background) with more contrast or sharper definition, the autofocus may focus on that item and not your subject. Knowing this, your job is to work with your camera's modus operandi to get the shot you want. One way is to zoom in, lock the focus on your subject (by pressing the shutter button halfway down) and, while still half-pressing (or switching to manual focus if you have that option), zoom out to recompose. Sometimes you can change perspective or backgrounds to give your subject better contrast. Also, aim for areas of high contrast, such as edges.

the flashing means that the exposure is not correct for that area. if that area was the subject, then you might want to adjust the settings to reduce sensitivity in order to view that area correctly. if you spot meter the 'true subject' in the frame, there will often be areas outside that subject that are either brighter or more dimly lit. but exposure will be right for the subject. it can't all be correctly exposed if there is much variation in lighting. fill flashes will provide more light to the subject, thus resulting in a reduction in sensitivity of the resulting settings. (shorter exposure time or smaller aperture or a combination of both) and that will let the brighter areas move closer to 'not washing out' or being over exposed as some people refer to it. in either approach, its not a defect or problem unless it bothers you. the flashing just lets you know that you can modify settings if it matters that the photograph has high levels of contrast beyond what you may want. sometimes the subject is not in the center, and thus not metered for. but the framing is set to include something off to the side. you can reset exposure by adjusting exposure compensation so that while you are reading a darker area than that of the subject, you don't want the camera to use that area for light settings necessarily.
recap: exposure control via exposure compensation or fill flash

What autofocus modes does the DiMAGE A200 employ?


AF single or AF continuous can be selected. In AF single mode, focus is calculated and set when the shutter-release button is pressed partway down. This mode is mainly useful for a stationary subject. In AF continuous mode, camera continues to focus on a moving subject even when the shutter-release button is pressed partway down. It is convenient to capture the moving subject. Full Time AF that continues focusing without pressing the shutter-release button can be used in both AF modes.

(Subject tracking can be turned on/off by the recording menu. ) When selecting the Spot Focus Point, Full Time AF can be used*. * Full Time AF can be turned on/off on the setup menu. * Sensors mounted on the grip and on the eyepiece detect when the camera is held.

Focus


The camera uses a precise auto focus mechanism, but under the conditions and with the subjects described below the auto focus function may not work well. Subjects moving at high speed Very shiny subjects such as a mirror or car body Extremely low contrast subjects (such as subjects dressed in the same color as the background, etc.) When there are objects in front of or behind the subject (such as an animal in a cage or a person in front of a tree) Subjects with little reflection, such as hair or fur Subjects with no solidity, such as smoke or flames Subjects viewed through glass In addition, the focus is set on the center of the frame, so if the subject is not at the center (when shooting two people standing side by side, for example), the focus is adjusted on the background and the desired subject (the two people) may be out of focus. In such cases, do the following: Point the camera so that one of the persons is at the center of the viewfinder. Half-press the shutter button. (The focus is locked on the person.) Holding the shutter button in the half-pressed position, reposition the camera to achieve the desired composition. Take the photo. If the focus cannot be adjusted, it is locked to infinity (1.5 meters when using the flash).

Focusing Difficulties


1. Typical problem subjects for autofocus 1) Very low-contrast subjects 2) Overlapping nearby and distant objects 3) Very bright subjects in the center 4) Subjects moving very fast 5) Subjects through glass Focus on an object that is at the same distance as the desired subject, apply Focus Lock, and then recompose the picture. Or set the lens focus mode switch to (or), and focus manually. (Manual focus is only possible with cameras providing this feature.) 2. Attempting to take pictures out of the camera's shooting distance: When taking pictures out of the camera's shooting distance, the subject will be out of focus. The shooting distance differs from each camera model. Please check the specifications of your camera in the instruction manual to determine the shooting distance.
