The settings depend on the type of picture you want. Since you declined to specify the model of your camera, I can't give you any exact answers. If you want an overview of the entire scene, the stage, the performers, the audience, etc., you can treat is as a landscape. Use a small aperture to get maximum depth of field. If you want to catch a single performer or a small group of performers in motion, treat it as a sports scene. Use a fast shutter speed to freeze the motion and a large aperture to narrow the depth of field. If you want to convey a sense of motion, use a slower shutter speed and let the action blur. The camera is a tool. You're the photographer. YOU have to decide what you want your photo to say to the viewer and use the appropriate settings to capture that. Two photographers shooting the same thing with the same equipment will most likely be using different settings because each will have his/her own view of what the picture should say.
For capturing the images using
Self Timer, press the Down Arrow control
button continuously to select the desired mode. You can set the timer for 10
seconds and 2 seconds by pressing the continuously, If we press the button
again the Self Timer will be turned off.
Press the Shutter button, the
self-timer lamp flashes and a beep sounds until the shutter operates. To cancel
the self-timer, press the down arrow
button again. You can redice the risk of blur by using the 2-second delay
Please follow the instruction below and let me know what is happening.
1. format the new card.( Can't format is from any virus
infected PC ).
2. Insert the card then reset your camera setting.
3. select your mamory card default for save the
4. Before start photography confirm that your battery
is fully charged.
Thnaks & please give me feedback about your camera.
Press the bottom part of the square with the "OK" button in the middle. It has a picture of a clock. "Off" will be highlighted, so scroll down to the picture of the clock, and it will show the message "Selftimer On: A photo is taken automatically 12 sec. after shutter button is pressed." Press the OK button to activate this mode. Now it's just like taking a regular picture, just press the button and run over to the group and in 12 seconds it will take the picture.
Most probably you have incorrectly set your camera to a Camera Record mode other than Auto.
If there is not enough light and you are trying to photograph the scene without flash, (eg. by setting your camera mode to a mode that is programmed not to use flash) then the camera has to compensate for the missing light by keeping its shutter open for a longer period of time so as enough light comes into its sensor.
If your hand shakes during that time, you get blurry images.
Check your camera settings. The Twilight scene mode gives you slower shutter speeds to capture dark,
night scenes, but you need to stabilize the camera on a tripod or something, depending on the level of light of the scene you want to photograph. The Twilight Portrait, on the other hand, is the same as Twilight with the addition of
flash is used to illuminate a person or foreground subject as well as capturing a night
background. This mode also keeps a long shutter time for capturing the night background.
For taking pictures of people, I would suggest you use Auto or Portrait mode where the camera will automatically use fast shutter speeds and flash (if dark).
The camera is not megabytes (MB) but megapixel (MP), there is a big difference. If you multiply the horizontal resolution by the vertical resolution then that will be how many megapixels are being captured. So in this case, max resolution 2048 x 1536 = 3145728 which is 3.1 MP effective. I don't think any camera actually captures exactly the full MP listed on the camera.
Now, if each pixel was represented by a byte then you would have 3.1 MegaByte picture captured. However, each pixel is represented by I think 3 bytes which would give you a 9.3 Megabyte picture captured. However, since this is usually to large for most users to deal with, compression is introduced thus the settings for fine and standard.
The tiff picture type is the 9.3 Megabyte photo with no compression. For most of us this isn't very effective for working with so we use the jpg compression. This reduces the picture to a more manageable size for saving, manipulation and storing. Keep in mind that this is what is called a 'lossy' compression which means that it actually removes pixels from the photograph and uses a technique called interpolation to bring the pixels back later.
