What's the best settings to shoot in the dark


The best settings depend on what you're taking a picture of and what you want that picture to say to the viewer. This is true whether you're taking pictures in the dark or in broad daylight.

In low-light situations you usually want to use the Aperture-priority mode (turn the mode dial to A) in order to get the most light through the lens. If the shutter speed is too slow, increase the ISO. You're also probably going to want to use a tripod or other camera support.

There are too many possibilities for any one setting to be "best" for everything. Shooting fireworks is not the same as photographing people at an outdoor cafe. Shooting inside in a restaurant is not the same as shooting a city street scene at night.

Entire books have been written on low-light shooting. You might want to visit a library or bookstore and take a look. Above all, experiment to see what YOU like. You're not paying for film processing, so try the different settings.

I am having problems with the pictures turning out to be very dark and in two out of three photos. I am sure it is in settings but do not know how to overcome problem. PLEASE ADVISE


If you can shoot on Manual that's what I would do. sometimes Program Setting does not read the light correctly. Can you tell me what setting you are shooting at, and what ISO...maybe then I can help you.

How to use a panasonic DVX100B in the dark?


Your best solution is to get a on camera light or a 3 point lighting system but that can get quite expensive. Another solution is making a couple of adjustments on the camera which allow more light into the camera. Please note this will not give you any kind of a night vision type of thing and you really can't "shoot in the dark" but you can shoot in low light, this process will allow more light into the CCD's producing a better image in low light. What you are going to do is: 1st make sure the ND Filter is on the OFF position. Next you are going to want to find the IRIS button it is located to the left of the LCD monitor. Next open the monitor and press the iris button and make sure it is set on manual. After doing this, turn the iris wheel (next to the iris button) all the way down you will see it go from F-(what ever the number is) to OPEN. That will open the iris all the way allowing the most light into the camera possible. If your image is still too dark then find the GAIN switch is is located on the same control panel as the iris button. You will see 3 selectors, L (Low); M(medium); and H (High). First switch it to medium and if it is still too dark, crank it down one more to High (please note that turning up the gain lowers resolution). This is really all you can do in low light with the Panasonic DVX100b. Hope this helped!

I CAN'T TURN ON THE FLASH.WHY? AND PICTURES LOOK BLURRY.HOW DO I ADJUST THAT?


usually by manually over-riding the automatic flash, the shutter speed varies (in this case it slows down, giving you that blurry or ghosted look) depending on the lighting conditions. If you are shooting in the dark (with flash), leave the flash on automatic. Only force the flash to fire manually if you are shooting in bright conditions, as a "fill-in" flash to reduce shadows.

The LCD screen is hard to see. What should I do?


If the LCD screen is too bright or too dark, adjust the LCD Brightness setting in the Setup Menu. If you are shooting photos outdoors in bright light, move the joystick to the icon showing the sun over shaowed area to turn on Outdoor mode and make the LCD screen easier to see in bright light.

One of the pictures has a great blue sky but the green tree is very dark and the other one has the green tree and very bright sky?


The two pictures were shot at dramatically different exposures - the "dark" one at 1/1600 shutter speed, f7.3, the "light" one at 1/320 shutter speed, f4.0. This accounts for the great difference, as the exposure conditions for the "light" one allowed much more light into the image during the exposure period. You didn't tell the whole story of how you set this up, I think you were shooting in a "spot" metering mode, where the particular exposure conditions the camera uses would vary considerably whether you were aiming at a dark area (making the picture light) or a light area (making the picture dark). I would make two recommendations: Switch your metering mode to "center weighted" (the mode labeled "[(•)]"), and also change your ISO setting to AUTO, as there would be no reason for shooting these photos at ISO 200 that I can think of.
