Videoing my granddaughters school concert, the focus fluctuated wildly. Why?

The hall was dark, but the stage was lit. When I moved the camera, or changed the focus, the fluctuations stopped.

At a recent school event (well lighted auditorium/church) all my pics of my grandson came out blurry. Some were taken at a long distance away using zoom, others were closer (around 10 ft) but the camera...


It may have seemed well-lit but, from the camera's viewpoint, it needed some help. You should have set the ISO to a higher number so that hand-held shots would not be blurry and dark.

What setting do I use for my Cannon Powershot SX 200 when I am shooting in an arena or concert hall - it will be reasonable well lit


Turn off the flash. Set the ISO for at least 800. If you have shake reduction, use it. If not, can you use a monopod or tripod?

In a not so bright area,if u take a picture without the flash it will be all blurred and if u use flash then it comes too dark.


#1: takin pic w/o flash, please make sure you are in a well-lit (sunlight lit is best) area. please make sure focus is not moving, and camera is not moving. when green box appears, please be very still to get clear pic. i donot use flash, flash does exactly wat u say. so i use "scene" w/o flash.

What is the best setting for indoor concerts? Alot of my pictures are blurry & either too dark or too light.


No flash, right? Concert pix are some of the hardest to do. 80% recovery is pretty good.
Don't use a speed slower than 60 (1/60th second).
try us use telephoto as much as possible, leaving the dark areas out of the picture. The camera metering gets confused when you have too much audience and other areas that are not lit up like the stage.

Other "experts" may have more "solutions" for you...

Yamaha DSP-A3090: All video settings trip unit and it turns off


Hi...
Is the first set "stereo" settings and the 2nd set "surround" settings?
If so that may mean that the surround speakers arent all connected right.

Sony DCR-DVD403 camcorder - picture won't focus. E:61:10 error.


E61:10 is a lens error code. You have a bad lens unit, but sometimes they can be fixed. The focus and zoom motor worm drives on the zoom lens jam when they get dropped. If your really really carfull you can free them up and fix the lens. Thereis a plastic claw that rides along the worm drive shaft that can get jamed. I've fixed thousands of these but i'm a guru. It can be tricky.

Concert settings


Hey Osfan,
I will start by saying concert photographs are some of the hardest images to capture successfully. The first thing you probably should do is set the iso to the highest setting possible which on this camera is iso 800. Since it sounds like you want to stop the action I would have the camera set to shutter priority mode or manual mode so you can control the shutter speed yourself. I would have the flash on at all times, and with this camera at iso 800 the flash should cover subjects 27.9 feet away at the wide-angle setting to 18.7 feet away at the most telephoto setting. I hope my suggestions help!

Sincerely,
Allan

Sound on Video?


Hey Alymac,
Digital still cameras are not designed to record high quality audio. The mic used to record the audio is probably OK for normal audio situations, but not for difficult recording situations like concerts. To get a good quality video that has good quality audio I would invest in a high quality digital camcorder. What your camera was picking up is all the atmospheric noise that is going on around you. You probably didn't notice it because a concert is usually a loud environment. To get a good quality recording of a concert you would need a mic that focuses where it picks up its audio from instead of from all sounds surrounding you.

Sincerely,
Allan
