This shouldn't be too hard...

I went to the trouble to track down the manual online. For the sake of convenience, I have stored the manual on my own server.

Click HERE to load the manual. It is in PDF format, so you must have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed in order to view the document. OR you can right-click HERE and save the document to your system and view the file. Save it for future use.

What you need to do is adjust the flash level. The details on the flash level feature are on page 31. There you can see which modes you can adjust the flash level in.

Page 38 explains the dynamics of flash level.

Make sure you try different combinations of settings to get the kind of picture quality you want. Flash is not the only variable to take into consideration when using your camera to get the best image possible. Use the manual to learn about all other features as well.

Good luck and do much expirementation! :)

I have a polaroid 16 mega pixels digital camera. most of my photos blurr. what can I do to improve quality of the photos. it is indoors so the flash is on auto.


Blurring is due to motion of the camera when the shot is being taken. The higher the resolution, the more steady the camera has to be to take good shots. Try using a solid surface to rest the camera when taking shots, and also practice "shooters breathing" when taking those "once-in-a-lifetime" shots. Practice makes perfect.

I have a Canon Power Shot A720. Outdoor photos are beautiful. Indoor photos are always grainy/blurry...a lot of noise. I have tried the ISP feature but there are only two choices... 1. Auto or 2....


Hi Usually outdoor picture are good within small compact camera. They designed like that. But now your unit just have flash pcb defective. When flash function work, your picture will be good indoor. Regarding your flash unit would be brown fuse or replacement of flash unit. It is 50 and 50 chance. Your local repair shop would charge around $35 to 95 depend on what they really want to charge. Thanks and best regard!

When i take picture,the picture is white n some time become very very bright, but if take video is ok.


this can be usually associated with your white balance in still camera mode.
Check to see your white balance is set correctly or just set it to auto. Also make sure the mode you are in it set. (ie. indoor, outdoor, auto, speed)

Indoor photos are yellow.


Your camera is choosing (or you chose) the wrong white balance setting. Try Auto White Balance, and if that doesn't work, try tungsten white balance. You could switch to daylight color bulbs in your lamps.

Check you function settings, is your camera set to indoor photo from a menu? Or just set everything to auto and try again.

Als check the back light setting, could be too high.

What is the best setting for taking photos through glass.i have a olympus sp-590uz .ive only had the caamera a few days any help would be great


Photography through glass isn't difficult if you know a few guidelines.
If you're indoors in a museum, or aquarium etc, it would be best to turn the flash off. This will eliminate the flash reflecting into your photos.
If you need to use a flash, make sure you're not squared on the glass. IF you're at a direct, 90 degree angle from the glass, that's when the flash will reflect off the glass and back into your lens. An angle between 50-70 degrees will all the light from the flash to illuminate the subject on the opposiite side of the glass without reflecting.
You're camera has a high megapixel resolution so you can get great color and detail. If you use the zoom feature, you'll need to hold the camera very steady or if possible, use a tripod.
Another technique that alot of photographers use is called "bracketing" . Many of the newer digitals have a setting that will allow you to do this. Bracketing is simply taking 2 or more photos of the same image with slight exposure setting changes being the only difference between each shot. For example, one shot would be normal exposure, one would be a step or two over-exposed, and another would be a step or two under-exposed.
Many of the cameras will take the 3 shots all together-check your owner's manual for specifics.
With these simple techniques, you'll look like an ace!

Flash pictures too blue - optio 750z - help?


Try playing with the exposure compensation lever. Turn it down a few notches when you use flash. I do that all the time to prevent over exposure Or you can set the flash compensation in the setup.
