I suggest you to change into a evening mode to shoot photos in evening. And you should turn your flashlight on.

Not really possible with most cameras. Set the ISO to the highest setting and turn off the flash. This is the best you can do. Professional cameras that can shoot at ISO 3200-5200 are about the only cameras that can take that type of shot. Most pocket cameras do not have ISO above 1000.

Good luck!

What settings should I use for shooting at a concert, lighting will not be a problem


The settings depend on the type of picture you want. Since you declined to specify the model of your camera, I can't give you any exact answers.
If you want an overview of the entire scene, the stage, the performers, the audience, etc., you can treat is as a landscape. Use a small aperture to get maximum depth of field.
If you want to catch a single performer or a small group of performers in motion, treat it as a sports scene. Use a fast shutter speed to freeze the motion and a large aperture to narrow the depth of field.
If you want to convey a sense of motion, use a slower shutter speed and let the action blur.
The camera is a tool. You're the photographer. YOU have to decide what you want your photo to say to the viewer and use the appropriate settings to capture that. Two photographers shooting the same thing with the same equipment will most likely be using different settings because each will have his/her own view of what the picture should say.

Settings I should set up my camera for a music concert? Especially for distance and movement of the performer


You're probably not going to get good pictures no matter what. First, you're going to be far from the action. You'll get pictures that will show that you were at a concert and not at a basketball game, but that might be about all. The SD1100's lens just isn't long enough to show the faces of the performers.

Second, it's going to be relatively dark. It may not seem that way to you once your eyes adjust, but it will be. It will be even worse once the lights go down and all you see is a spotlit stage. Your pictures may not show anything other than a white blob in the middle of black.

Having said all that, I'd go with Auto or Portrait exposure mode and sensitivity to ISO 1600 to try to keep the shutter speed as high as possible. I'd also turn off the flash---it's much too weak to reach the stage, all it'll do is light up the back of the head of the person in front of me. I'd leave the white balance at Auto unless the lighting is really weird, in which case I would go to Daylight to try to preserve some of that weirdness.

Don't expect too much. I wouldn't expect to get very good photos even with a bigger, more expensive and more capable camera. But I wouldn't let that stop me from taking photos.

I have a Panasonic Lumix T27 and my photos at night parties and concerts always turn out dark and terrible. Can you please tell me the correct settings to rectify this problem and for fast taking shutter...


At night and at concerts, the light level is low. If your camera is on auto, it will try to fire the flash. It's only effective for about 8 feet. Anything farther away than that will be dark. In these instances, it's best to turn off the flash, set the ISO to a higher setting, and set the white balance for tungsten lighting. You'll need to hold the camera steady but you should get better shots.

What would be the very best settings on the DMC-TZ5 camera for an indoor rock concert?


Without flash the DMC TZ5 still does well. The photo has a good level of detail. It also has a natural look to it. Once again there is that bit more colour in the shot than I am used to seeing.

The way Panasonic manage the ISO settings is a little different to other brands. With the DMC TZ5 you set the maximum ISO rating you wish to use and then the camera is intelligent to work out the actual setting. This tends to produce better results than with other brands in most situations.

Hope helped.

What is the best setting & shutter speed for taking pics of indoor concerts a night? I own a panasonic DMC-FZ28


Hi,
it is always best to test some settings. As a Fz 50 owner, I would go for the high sensitivity mode in scn. Or I´d go into P program, set a higher iso, 200-400-800 depending on the light. Remember, the darker it gets, the longer the shutter remains open - high chance for camera shake. Our cameras are similar, you could get along with this too.

Missing shot.


Any auto camera like this is going to have trouble in dark light...
Photography is all about light, and in dark situations, compromise as well.

You best chance is to set the ISO up to the highest setting available, use flash, and a faster shutter speed, however, faster shutter speeds means less light can enter the lens, and hence give a darker image. Higher ISO makes the camera more sensitive to light, but produces grainier images as a result. Flash creates artificial light...

The only real way to get good images at a concert in the dark is with a high end camera, a lens costing many thousands of dollars, a tripod or monopod to steady yourself, and a longer open shutter time.

In the meantime however, experiment with higher ISO setting, flash and try to keep your hand steady at all times because the shutter speed needs to be slightly slower for the lens to capture more light.

Best settings for a concert w/Canon Powershot Pro1?


A few settings:
Set the ISO to 400. Set the light balance to TUNGSTEN... that will make the colors accurate.
and then set the dial to P and turn your flash OFF.
then when taking photos, be sure to hold the camera VERY STILL. movements are magnified while zooming so be patient.
Also take alot of pictures ... it's better to take alot and then be able to pick the real good ones and toss out the lousy ones..
Also, be nice to those nearby by turning the MUTE to ON in the menu...this turns off the beeps and clicks... You can also turn off REVIEW... and keep the display closed. This will make taking pictures quicker because you're not waiting for the display to review each shot.

Have fun...

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.
