Question about Nikon Coolpix 5000 Digital Camera
When taking photos in low light indoors or out with auto flash no matter how close to subject pictures turn out very dark.SAME PICTURE taken with much cheaper camera turn out excellent.Please advise as instuction book is no help.
Nikon later added an addendum for this camera. I found this solution on the internet.
The sensor to measure the amount of light is a little hole just to the inside of the grip on the upper part of the camera body.
You really must hold this camera with a fingertip grip. Someone with big hand who grabs the camera that way will either block that hole; or you middle finger is so close to the sensor that the light from the flash bounces off your finger making the camera think the subject is much closer. I started holding the camera so that my fingers are NOT on the inside edge of the grip and the problem went away.
for a discussion and solution.

Try adjusting the flash settings to SLOW SYNC, that is the auto flsh combined with slow shutter speed. It is use to capture both subject and background at night or undr dim light.
