Re: camera settings

I'm not sure what you mean by milky, but I'll assume you want it to kind of blend want to use TV mode and slow the shutter speed way down and play with it in different shutter speeds to get the proper exposure and "milky" effect you are trying to achieve.

Hope this helps!

I no longer hear 2 beeps for the focus, and it appears that the lens is not moving to focus the camera.

You could have a user profile set to disable sound. Look in the menu.

As for the focus, maybe the camera is set to manual focus (MF on the display) or macro mode which is shown as a small flower icon on the display. Just swtch them off.

Picture comes out blurry and there appears a hand that appears to be shaking in the top left hand corner of the picture screen

Hand shake means shutter speed is too low to avoid blurred picture(due to low light)
Either increase lighting or
Use flash and turn it on or use higher ISO setting or
Use lowest aperture number.
Last when there is nothing moving in the frame you can use tripod at any P.A.S settings in any lighting

Tell me something about settings of outdoor photograhpy. which are the real settings ( wide balance, shutter speed, iso etc....

Put the camera on auto and it will set all those for you. By exprimenting you'll find the right settings for each occasion. To perfect this may take years. The settings depend on the weather, clouds, buildings nearby, water, target (moving/stationary/speed etc.).
With digital camera it's easy to take pictures with different settings and immediately be able to compare and find the right ones.

Over exposure photos

Try change the exposure of the camera: start the camera, set the dial to 'I' (automatic iso), then press the 'up' menu near the display until 'exposure' settings appear. move the slider to the left/right, according to your preference.
I reccomend using the automatic iso for taking pictures, it automatically adjust exposure.

Shooting modes

The shooting modes are as follows: PROGRAM (P)/AUTO Modes. Used for general photography. The camera automatically makes the settings for natural color balance. In PROGRAM AUTO (P) the brightness (exposure compensation) can be adjusted. Portrait. Suitable for taking a portrait-style photo of a person. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting settings to produce natural skin tones. Landscape + Portrait. Suitable for taking photos of both your subject and the landscape. This setting allows both the foreground subject and background landscape to be in focus. Landscape. Suitable for taking photos of landscapes and other outdoor scenes. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting settings to produce vivid blues and greens. Night and Portrait. Suitable for taking photos of your subject in the evening or at night. Since the shutter speed is slow, it is advised that you use a tripod to support the camera in this mode to help avoid blur from camera shake. Night Scene. Suitable for shooting pictures in the evening or at night. The camera sets a slower shutter speed than is used in normal shooting. If you take a picture of a street at night in any other mode, the lack of brightness will result in a dark picture with only dots of light showing. In this mode, the true appearance of the street is captured. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting settings. If you use the flash, you can take pictures of both foreground subjects and the background. It is advised that you use a tripod to support the camera in this mode to help avoid blur from camera shake. Sports. Suitable for capturing fast moving action without blurring. Even a fast moving object will appear to be stationary. Self Portrait. Enables you to take a picture of yourself while holding the camera. Point the lens toward yourself and the focus will be locked on you. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting settings. The zoom is fixed in the wide position and cannot be changed. Movie Mode. Enables you to take a QuickTime movie.

Spots on image when using built-in Speedlight flash

As is common in many compact digital cameras where the built-in flash is very close to the lens strange reflections can appear in images under certain conditions. Particulate matter in the air in front of the lens (between the camera and subject) such as water vapor (as in a cloudy day), smoke, dust or other items can reflect light directly into the lens causing neutral colored white/grey semi-transparent spots to appear in the image. In extreme examples there may be many of these spots in an image or there may be only one per image. Also, since these spots are completely random they will move or disappear from image to image. For example, if two images are shot consecutively with the same camera settings one image may have spots while the other is clean. To avoid these spots: When possible, avoid photographing in smoky, dust, or cloudy areas Do not use the camera's flash in locations such as above Use an external Speedlight flash if a flash is needed Review images on the camera and re-shoot if spots are visible Cleaning the lens will not have an effect on these spots, as the particles that cause this are not on the lens itself.
