Re: Falsh!

Here is a link to the manufacturers link to the manual. Click the one called Operating Instructions. Look on page 29, this will tell you how to operate the flash. Hope this helps.

My pictures are over exposed,too much light.Faces are pale white,what setting should I change? pictures were taken indoors.

If using flash try turning down the ISO setting to 100. Also change the White balance to the Indoor setting if you cannot manually set that.

I have been using this digital camera for a while

You need to change the white balance to tungsten lighting.

I have never used a slr camera, what setting do you need for inside fotos at a reception at night (low light) or good lighting. and what setting do i use outside sunny where i do not have the white cloudy...

Indoors it's always better to use a flash. Your camera will switch to proper settings automatically on auto mode. Indoors you can use ISO 400, 1/125s, f5.6 (all this depends on light and distance). Outside ISO 100, 1/250s, f8.
With camera's auto-mode you don't have to bother. Have smaller aperture (bigger f-value) for more depth and shorter exposure (bigger number on shutter speed - it reads 1/speed) for stopping the motion.
With some practise you find out the proper settings for each situation. This has taken me roughly some 30-odd years and still I get surprised almost daily.
Digital camera is better than a 'normal' film camera since you see the results right away and can change the parameters in a whiff and takea new picture. Bad ones you can delete.

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.

This may be noise due to picture(s) taken indoors, or out, in low light. This camera is not the best in low light and the flash is only good to about 12 ft.

TZ stands for Travel Zoom, meaning for mainly Travel outdoor senery shots where large Zoom is also handy. Read manual for lower light indoor/night shots.

How do i turn the falsh on

On the back of the camera, there are three buttons in the upper right hand corner. The right-most button has a ">" embossed in it and just above the button is a little picture of a lightning bolt. With the camera on, press that ">" button to change how the flash works. Setting it for "AUTO" works for most stuff.
