Don't scare the penguins.
Go to flash mode and switch off flash.
Alternatively, you can use manual mode and go for a slower shutter sheep anf full aperture, but this could make the photo fuzzy. U might need a tripod
Another alternative is to use a very high ISO like 800 or 1600. This will make the photo more grainy but if your hand is steady, you might be able to get your penguin.

Happy shooting

When I take pictures at night or in the house when it's darker they don't come out clear or bright. I've tried changing the settings and used the flash. I would appreciate you help. Thanks


Most of the present day personal cameras cannot have a good flash output and so the THROW of light is limited, So when it is used for night shots try and use the flash as close as possible to the SUBJECT as the flash will not COVER THE SUBJECT if FAR away.
This can be the reason for the poor shots. Also try to manually set the camera for higher sensitivity .Use of a SLAVE flash will improve your shots. You can buy this as an accessory.

Night pictures do not come out


To take night photo's you need to use a tripod. this will enable you to take long exposures without the blur. If you use flash it will only illuminate objects near the camera.

Grainy pictures at night


Hi

Low light without a flash will always cause grainy pictures unless you have a very high end camera that can shoot at very high ISO speeds like 6400 and up.

Try changing the camera from the green camera 'auto' setting to "P" and then press the Menu button (I think it's Menu) and look for the different mode settings. There should be one for Night or Night Portrait or similar, I can't recall Sony terms and I don't have one here to check sorry.

Your other option is to use the flash, try it with Red Eye turned on if possible.

Hope this helps.

Very grainy pictures indoors at night


If you can adjust the ISO sensitivity to a lower number then the graininess will be reduced.

However, by reducing the ISO, you will need a slower shutter speed and a larger aperture. A tripod, table or other support may be necessary.

The "noise reduction" setting on the camera can also be adjusted a step up.

Taking pictures at full resolution and fine compression will also help.

Overall, at least try lowering the ISO, and using the flash brighter.

Need help w/ night pics at softball games


On camera flash will not help in out door sports facilities. If you have maxed the ISO and set it to Aperture priority -which will slow the shutter down and give you camera shake and blurred images as the players dart about- Ho Hum you ain't going to win this one. Buying a bolt on flash I doubt will be powerful enough either, take what you can and get to grips with a good image editor- Though I guess the results will still be 'noisy'
