Re: Setting the camera timer

Hi there,
by the way in setting the timer for your camera here is what you are going to do...

-turn the camera on
-set the camera in recording
-press the Right Button beside the menu button (the incomplete circle)
-and then you will see that there will an icon showing in the left side part of the screen of the camera.

Selecting the self-timer
1. Rotate the MODE DIAL to select a RECORDING mode with the exception of VOICE RECORDING mode.
2. Press the SELF-TIMER button until the desired mode indicator displays on the LCD monitor.
A 10 second, 2 second or double self-timer icon appears on the LCD monitor. In Movie Clip mode, only the 10-second self-timer will work.
•2SEC self-timer (icon of incomplete circle with 2S)
: Pressing the shutter button will allow an interval of 2 seconds before the image is
•10SEC self-timer (incomplete circle)
: Pressing the shutter button will allow an interval of 10 seconds before the image is taken.
•Double self-timer (double incomplete circle)
: A picture will be taken after about 10 seconds and 2 seconds later a second picture will be taken. When using the flash, the 2-second self-timer may be delayed for longer than 2 seconds depending on the flash charge time.
3. When you press the SHUTTER button, the picture will be taken after the
specified time has elapsed.

How to use and do photography on canon power shoot sx 60sh?

This is a very open-ended question. Start by reading your owners manual to get familiar with your camera's features. Then go take pictures. Take a photography class as there are probably local clubs or professionals or colleges or adult education or other sources in your area that can help. There are also online courses available. One option is New York Institute of Photography. They will allow you to do this from home, send you all the course material and photography assignments and you submit those for critique. Good or bad, it is what you make from it..nothing more. Good luck. Photography can quickly become a passion.

What are the best setting for the nikon s4300

The "best" settings depend on what you're taking a picture of, and on what you want that picture to say to the viewer. The best setting for a portrait won't be the best setting for a landscape, for example. The best setting for a portrait of a young girl may not be the best setting for a portrait of her grandfather.

Two photographers taking a picture of the same thing with the same camera may not choose the same settings because each photographer "feels" different about the picture and want the viewer to get that feeling.

That's why cameras come with all these settings. YOU are the photographer, the camera is just a tool. You might want to visit your local library and look through some introductory photography books. They will explain what the various settings do and how they affect the picture. They will tell you the "best," or at least the "better" settings for certain situations. Above all, experiment. Take pictures of the same thing with different settings and look at them on your computer to see what changes. One big advantage of digital photography is that experimentation doesn't cost you anything.

What would be the easiest setting to use for a beginner

The easiest setting would be the AUTO mode. In this mode the camera does everything except decide where and when to take the picture. You can also use the various scene modes depending on what you're taking a picture of.
As you gain experience you'll want to use some of the other settings in order to take more control over your photography. I suggest you visit your local library. They should have some introductory photography books which will tell you when to use what setting.

All of my shots are grainy--really grainy. My old 8 mpx camera took beautiful, tack-sharp photos. This is 14 mpx and it looks terrible. Someone suggested that maybe the contrast needed to be adjusted ...?...

Unfortunately with higher mpxs sometimes you pay for it with higher noise levels. The smaller pixels are more sensitive and can cause noise. A couple of things you can do to help control the noise is make sure your pictures not underexposed, you may need to bump up you exposure compensation a little as long as you don't end up too bright.
You can also try to shoot with the lowest ISO setting your camera has. High ISO = NOISE!
Last you can run your photos through a noise reducing program such as"Noisware" their community edition is free.
PS Contrast settings will do nothing for noise.

I have a nikon coolpix l100 and I was wondering how to take pictures outside at night? what settings do I put the camera on? all my pictures outside at night turn out very very dark

There are nighttime settings for most cameras. This can be an auto setting where the camera will automatically detect the light level and set the exposure rate.
On a manual setting, you need to consult your manual as to the options of can be set such as:
aperture (how big the hole is to let light in)
f-stop (speed of the shutter)
exposure time (how long to expose the CCD)
Flash on or off.

all of these items should be explained in your manual.
If you did not get a manual, the please look up these items in a search engine to get an understanding of how to balance your exposures.
Flash photography is not the only nighttime way to take picture.

I hope this was of some help.

Hi i have a nikon d40, but all my pictures are coming out blurry. i don't have it long and it was working perfectly. any help would be very grateful.

Actually that's perfectly normal operation. They turned out soft or a little blurry because the shutter speed was too slow for you to handhold, the aperture was wide open, or you moved the focus after focus was obtained. In auto mode, there are very few things you can set, so there isn't any setting it back to normal. You could try using a flash. But it probably boils down to proper holding technique and proper exposure.

You could benefit by taking a basic class on photography. Learn how to use your camera in the Manual mode and you'll be able to exactly figure out why your pictures in auto mode didn't come out looking as sharp as you thought they should. If you don't have time for or can't afford a basic class, your manual is a good place to start.

Pictures have cyan color cast

Check your "white balance" (WB) setting.Try setting to "auto" and see if you get the same results shooting outdoors on a sunny day. If you do, the camera is in need of repair, if you do not, you need to buy a book on digital photography to supplement your manual.
