Re: Camera Flash & Picture

I just got this camera for Christmas the only way that I know of how to fix it is to change the exposure manually. If the picture is to bright you need a negative exposure, if it is to dark you need a positive exposure. I have noticed that the auto exposure does not get the correct setting that you need for the lighting.

Dont know how to turn on flash polaroid a500 camera

Hi onestoppa972, I could try and explain it to you, but I think it would be better for you if you were to read it and have the pictures for reference. If you don't have the manual, you can download it here: Just follow the instructions and download it for free and it shows the various flash settings. If I can help you further, please let me know. Thanks.

Indoor photos are too dark and skin tones orange-ish

I have the same problem at my church with the indoor lighting on my camera. I'm able to get it work by putting the whole thing on manual and adjusting the lighting settings that way.

Why do some of my pictures come out dark or with shadows?

Your Polaroid Fun! Digital 320 camera does not have a flash. If pictures are coming out dark, it's because there wasn't enough light in the surroundings when the picture was taken. Remember, it's important to take photos in brightly lit surroundings. When taking pictures indoors, make sure that the room has bright lighting. For best results, take pictures during daylight hours with a combination of indoor and outdoor light, preferably near a window.
