I take pictures for a very small school. One of the issues that I continue to run into is while taking pictures in the gym (1932) the lighting makes the pictures turn out mostly yellow. Is there a way around this? We have a fun event happening in there this evening and would like to capture it.

By using the manual white balance adjustment on most cameras, you can "filter" out the yellowish color cast you are experiencing. The adjustment is best made while standing in the area in which you will be shooting. You will see the shift in color on the camera's LCD as you switch from setting to setting. On most cameras adjustment to white balance requires you to take the camera off it's fully automatic setting.

A god punishment is to hit yourself with a hammer several times. For your children, I suggest taking away their gym shoes and make them wear their "Sunday" shoes to school for a while.

E03 and E02


The error e03 is associated with a speed issue. Most likely a misaligned sensor which is a small black cylindrical piece about 1.5" long and will have a cord that runs from the lower board around the frame and points to the front drive pulley. It should be about 1-2 credit card widths away. Also check that the round magnet is still located in the front pulley. On most units an LED will light up on the LCB (lower control board) as the magnet passes the sensor. If your handy enough to check continuity then look for an open/closed signal as that magnet passes. If this all checks out then very likely you have an LCB issue. You can however also check the motor brushes and run the motor separate which is another topic

I have a Nikon d200 and need to take sports photos in a basketball court The sport is very fast moving. What should I set the camera to. Lately the photos are dark and or blurry


You want the fastest shutter speed you can get and the largest aperture possible.
If you're close enough and it's allowed, use the flash. The flash will freeze the action. However, it's likely to give you a dark background instead of a blurry background.
If not, use the Aperture Priority mode. Open the lens to its maximum aperture (smallest f/number). This will give you the fastest shutter speed for the existing lighting conditions. The fast shutter speed will freeze the action and the large aperture will blur the background, though the amount of freezing may be limited if the lighting is relatively dark, as in a high school gym.
Be aware that if you're shooting indoors you're going up against the laws of physics. The human eye can adapt much better than any camera. A high school gym will appear light enough once you've been inside for a few minutes, but it is much, much darker than a bright day outdoors.

I need help taking pictures with my DX6490 kodak camera. It does take clear pictures in a gym or auditorium when I need to use the zoom.


What is most important is that unless there is a slave flash or a more flash the subject might look quite blurred in the distance . You might need a SLR with a wide angle to get such pictures perfectly. Try to light up the area when it is indoor and see the result.

Need help with settings to shoot in gymnasium - thanks


Virtually all cameras have a provision to set the "white balance" for different types of lights. You need to set your white balance for flourescent lighting. If that doesn't give you the color you want, don't hesitate to try the other settings...one of them may be exactly what you're looking for.

When I take a picture with my 18-55 on a d3100 I hear and see through my visor that the image moves and a sound like a click, many seconds after taking the picture. It seems like it's still open and closes...


Hi,

Giving the lens your using and depending on the shooting mode your in. I assume your shooting in a low light situation. The lens you have is not good for low light shooting because the F-stop is only 3.5 at widest, so minimal light gets in so the camera decides what speed to set it at to close the shutter. for example shooting in the school gym or church, the camera speed will be 1/20 second or even up to 1/2 second to get enough lighting into the sensor so the image is properly expose but for you to have a sharp image you will need to shoot on a tripod.

Without tripod and just handheld will create blurry images. I would suggest you bump up the ISO setting to minimum to 3200 or higher that way the camera speed will be higher and reduce handheld shakes that will create blurry images. But remember, increase ISO will increase in image grain.

That is why I suggest you invest into a 17-50mm F2.8 lens for low-lighting or 50mm f1.8 lens.

I hope this helps

How do I fix the cable on my everlast one-gym?


Go to your local yellow pages and find a hoist & rigging store. Call and ask if they can make cables for you. then take a number pictures from different angles of your unit to show how the other cables are strung. then proceed to take the old cable off. Good Luck!!

Depending on how far away you are from the action, the flash is most probably not strong enough to be effective...in fact, it's probably making your camera underexpose every shot. Turn off the flash and turn up the ISO to 400 or even 800.

I get white eyes inside the gym


Hi -

I am not all that familiar with the Olympus camera settings, but see if you can adjust the lighting setting when you plan on taking pictures inside the gym - set it for Tungsten, if you have such a setting - it will help to adjust the colors.
