The first piece of advice I can give you is to use a stable support, such as a tripod.

Obviously, the main problem with night photography is the lack of light. There are several things you can do to combat the situation.

One is to add light. The camera's built-in flash can add some, though not a whole lot, as long as the subject is not too far away. You'll have problems if the subjects are not all the same distance away. In a group picture you'll get the nearer people blown out while the farther people disappear into the shadows.

You can raise the ISO, but this will increase the digital noise, making the pics look "grainy."

This leaves a slower shutter speed. This makes a problem of motion, both of the subject and of the camera. There's not much you can do about the subject motion (except possibly panning) except to choose you shooting spot so that the motion is either toward or away from you instead of across your line of sight. The best way of combating camera motion gets us back to the first thing I said.

I had taken pictures at my son's 16th bd party. I had looked at them on the camera throughout the night. I took a picture and tried to look at it and the camera said file error. None of the pictures...


Take no more pics until you've recovered your photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that may help you recover your photos. This article reviews and outlines several of the better ones:

The info is stored with the picture (not on it) in a form called "metadata". This can be recalled by almost any photo editing program.

Unable to access all photos in play mode


If they are being saved to the memory card they should all be together. Was the memory card in at time you took the picture?
If it wasn't then this means it is saved to the internal memory.

Connect you camera to your computer and see if they show up there.
If this does not work take it back to the store you brought it from and ask for techniqucal support.
Good luck

Operation lamp - amber light blinking


I do not know the solution to your problem but I can tell you that when the camera is working properly that amber light means the flash is chargeing or your camera is doing something like saveing a picture so if your battery is low your flash might not charge properly or your camera might have something wrong with is memory. Sorry i couldn't be a better help.Good luck!

Not taking photos?


See if you can display pictures in playback mode. If you can then it is probably the CCD sensor that is faulty ( either no image at all or heavily distorted pictures on you led screen in capture mode. camera should be repaired free of charge if it is the CCD block since properly manufactured one lasts 15 + years.

Shooting modes


The Shooting modes are as follows: PROGRAM (P)/AUTO Modes Used for general photography. The camera automatically makes the settings for natural color balance. In PROGRAM (P) the brightness (exposure compensation) can be adjusted. In AUTO mode you cannot use exposure compensation or panorama features. Portrait Suitable for taking a portrait-style shot of a person. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. Sports Suitable for capturing fast moving action without blurring. Even a fast moving object will appear to be stationary. Landscape Suitable for taking photos of landscapes and other outdoor scenes. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. Night scene Suitable for shooting pictures in the evening or at night. The camera sets a slower shutter speed than is used in normal shooting. If you take a picture of a street at night in any other mode, the lack of brightness will result in a dark picture with only dots of light showing. In this mode, the true appearance of the street is captured. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. If you use the flash, you can take pictures of both the subject and the background. Nightscene + Portrait Suitable for taking photos of your subject in the evening or at night. This setting employs a slow shutter speed, the camera should be stabilized to avoid camera shake resulting in a blurred picture. Landscape + Portrait Suitable for taking photos of both your subject and the landscape. This setting allows for both the foreground subject and background landscape to be in focus. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. Self Portrait Enables you to take a picture of yourself while holding the camera. Point the lens towards yourself and the focus will be locked on you. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. The zoom is locked to wide-angle and cannot be changed. Indoor Optimum settings for taking pictures of family gatherings and groups of friends. This mode reproduces the background clearly capturing the atmosphere. Beach Suitable for taking photos at the beach under a bright blue sky. Colors of the sky, the beach and people are reproduced vividly. Snow Optimun settings for taking pictures where backgrounds are snow fields. Settings are similar to Beach settings and colors of the sky, the greenery and people are reproduced vividly. Fireworks Optimum settings for capturing fireworks in the night sky. Since this setting employs a slow shutter speed , the camera should be stabilized to avoid camera shake resulting in a blurred picture. Sunset Optimum settings for capturing pictures of the setting sun. This mode reproduces reds and yellows vibrantly. Again, this setting employs a slow shutter speed , the camera should be stabilized to avoid camera shake resulting in a blurred picture.
