I'm having a couple problems with my Nikon D90 and for the life of me that manual is too confusing, The first problem I'm having is.... I'm taking pictures at my sons wrestling events and I can't get it...


I imagine your son's wrestling events are held in school gyms with lighting that is less than ideal. If you are taking pictures without a flash then the blurriness you describe could well be due to a slow shutter speed. Your camera is using a slower shutter speed to gather enough light, but your subjects are moving fast enough to cause motion blur in the picture. Either you increase the aperture (larger aperture = smaller f number), increase the ISO number (equivalent to film speed), or you use a flash. If you do use a flash, the built-in pop-up flash is only useful for close shots probably no more than 15 feet away or so. A speedlight flash, such as the Nikon SB-400, Sb-600, SB-700 or SB-900 will project the light much farther.

If you set your ISO manually to 1250 or 1600 and put your D90 on shutter-priority (the "S" on the left dial) then you can use the right rear dial to set your shutter speed and the camera will set the aperture for you. To stop the action you will likely need at least 1/125 or 1/160 of a second. Go as high (fast) as you can--the limit will be your lens. The standard "kit" lenses are mostly F5.6 as the biggest aperture, and that is limiting without a flash or daylight. You might also try a monopod--a one-legged stand--to help steady your camera for you.

Red eye on sanyo digital camera xacti,always theres a red eye when taking pictures,i already adjusted everything,still occuring red eye.


Do you mean your subject's eyes are showing "redeye"? This is a common problem with cameras that have the flash very close to the lens. Almost every photo editing program has a tool to remove red-eye. Check your computer to see what you have installed. In the future, most cameras have a red-eye flash setting which shoots a short flash before the main flash to close down the pupils in your subjects eyes to eliminate red-eye. You could also turn up the lights in the room...sometimes that helps.

Double flashes


You have the red eye reduction turned on. The double flash you are seeing is to reduce the "red eyes" you sometimes see in your pictures. Consult your owners manual for turning off this feature

Red Eye


Does your camera's flash have a redeye reduction mode? It should tell you in your camera's manual. Some cameras use a pre-flash method which causes the flash to fire several times in succession before firing the shutter in order to give the subject's eyes time to adjust to the bright light.

Redeye is actually caused by the flash being too close to the camera's lens. That's why you see professional photographers using a flash attached to their cameras by a cable so they can move it away from the lens. Because you have a compact camera, there is no way to change this flash to lens distance.

You might also try just turning the flash off. Unless you are taking pictures in a very dark area, you may find the results to be very satisfactory.

Red eye


RED EYE is caused by the sudden flash from your camera and the eyes reflex reaction to the sudden light. So what the red eye reduction does is to double flash to counter the reaction. You can try adding an external light source to to your subject. in addition to the following procedures for your camera in the manual, the indicator location on page 64 Flash On Flash Off Red-eye reduction C REC modes on page 52, Snapshot; pg 64, have the flash fire automatically when required (Auto Flash) * Turn off the flash ... recording with flash, reducing the chance of red-eye in the image (Red- eye reduction) In this case, the flash fires automatically; Also, be aware of the following: The approximate effective range of the flash is shown below. Wide Angle Optical Zoom: Approximately 0.4 to 2.9 meters (1.3´ to 9.5´) (ISO Sensitivity: Auto) Telephoto Optical Zoom: Approximately 0.4 to 1.6 meters (1.3´ to 5.2´) (ISO Sensitivity: Auto) * Depends on zoom factor

DSC-P52 Flash problem


The 3 flashed is “Red Eye Reduction” the flashed caused the iris to close which lessen the reflection off the back of the eyeball. These days most computer software can remove Red Eye.
To turn off the 3 flashes you need to go in through the camera set-up. A side benefit from turning this off is that your batteries will last longer :o)
