That depends on what you want the photos to say to the viewer.
If all the subjects are about the same distance from the camera then you can use the flash. If they're not, like people at a long table, then the flash will blow out the nearer people while leaving the distant ones in the dark. You also wouldn't want to use the flash for a scene at a candlelight dinner or by a fireplace.
If there isn't much light then you'll need to set the ISO higher. How much higher depends on the amount of light and the amount of digital noise you're willing to accept. Also the shutter speed may get long so you might want to consider a tripod or other stable support.
The white balance should be set to match the light. You can usually get by on auto, but it'll be worthwhile trying the other settings.
As I said originally, the settings depend on what you want the photos to say. Shooting a lunch party in a room with large windows is different from shooting an intimate dinner by candlelight. Do you have anything specific in mind?

What settings do i use on the Nikon coolpix l320 in bright sunlight

That depends on your subject and what you want your photo to say to the viewer. If you're taking a photo of a scenic vista, you'd probably want a deep depth of field to get everything in the scene in focus. If you're taking a photo of a person, you'd probably want a shallow depth of field so the person is in focus but the background is blurred. If you're taking a photo of a sporting event, you'd probably want a fast shutter speed to freeze the action.

Only YOU can decide the best setting for YOUR photos. That's why the camera offers so many settings, instead of a single "Best" setting for all photos.

What are the best settings for the Leica D-lux 3, for clear photos in general?

The best settings depend on what you're taking a picture of, and what you want that picture to say to the viewer. That's why the camera gives you all those choices instead of just a single "BEST" setting.

You don't want to use the same settings for a landscape photo as for a portrait. Even for a portrait, you might want different settings for one of an old man than one of his granddaughter. Your local library probably will have some books on introductory photography, explaining what the various settings do and how they affect your photos.

I do have a memory card in the camera. I am going to do as you say as soon as I get a reader. But, what about the pictures on the camera itself?

First remove the batteries from the camera for 10 mins then insert the batteries back into the camera. This will reset the camera and you need to set the date and time again.

All your photos may be stored on the memory card.

To check if the camers has photos stored inside the camera's memory then remove the memory card then turn on the camera and see if you can see any stored photos in the camera, if not the all your photos are on the memory card.

If there are photos on the camera try connecting the camera without the memory card to your computer and see if you can download your photos. If this does not work, try using another computer.

Best of luck.

Have you verified that the print quality options are set the way you want them inside of the print driver and from inside of the application you are using?

That's the best I can do without more descriptive information of the failure and the make and model of the printer.

My Pentax *ist DL camera has started to give me problems. The rotary control dial on the top left of the body does not work. When I turn it, it does not display the setting as set on the dial. In addition...


it is best to be sent for repairs, since it appears that something is wrong inside of your camera. Software doesnt respond to the switches, it is best to be not turned on and sent to repairs.

You might have changed the settings; ISO setting too high or something else, just reset it to factory settings if you can't figure out ISO.

Cant get Best Shot or View to dial up.

If your buttons aren't working properly I would send it in to Casio and have them fix it. I would call them and tell them that your camera needs sent in for repair and see where the closest place is for you to send it. You can call them at 800-706-2534 and then keep choosing option 1.
