Hi im sorry to say its not going to be possible to do it with your phone, even the newest phones out would struggle to get a picture from that far they just dont have the same range as a normal camera and even if you could get close enough the detail would be that bad you would not see the true picture phone pictures are ok up to about 4 feet any further and they struggle to get the light even with the flash on.

sorry i couldnt give you a sollution to your phone problem but its just not possible to achieve what you want using a phone.

My sony cyber-shot DSC-H10 flash stopped working. The flash pops up like it is going to work, but does not flash. I can take pictures but with noflash. Can you help me?


You flash is in ' Flash forced OFF ' position.Press on the flash control button repeatedly until one of the four modes are selected.

1.Flash Auto - Flashes when there is insufficient light or backlight ( Default Setting )

2.Flash forced on

3.Slow synchro - The shutter speed is slow in a dark place to clearly shoot the background that is out of flash light.

4.Flash forced off - ( Your current mode ).The flash automatically pops up and strobes when using the flash.Close the flash by hand after use.

I have a rebel xt 350D , using 75-300mm 5.6f lens to do some girls basketball photography inside a gym. Had camera set on: ISO 1600, M mode, 5.6f, 200 shutter speed (that seem to set automatically), used...


Unless you were up close and personal, the built-in flash was your problem. Anything past about 15 feet and your picture will be dark. You would have been better off turning the flash off and using available light. Once the flash is off, you can set both aperture and shutter speed in M mode. Another choice would be to lay out some extra bucks and get a separate flash unit. They're much more powerful than the built-in flash.

At a recent school event (well lighted auditorium/church) all my pics of my grandson came out blurry. Some were taken at a long distance away using zoom, others were closer (around 10 ft) but the camera...


It may have seemed well-lit but, from the camera's viewpoint, it needed some help. You should have set the ISO to a higher number so that hand-held shots would not be blurry and dark.

My Canon 550d is new and right out of the box on full auto indoor pics are dark. If I go to no flash mode they are much brighter. It's like the flash is out of sync. Is it the camera or me?


the flash only covers a certain range and the built in flash has quite a small range. so lets say its dark in the room and you take a shot of a person they probably look really bright but the background is pretty dark, thats pretty normal and its better not to use flash, now in the auto mode without flash it will be using a higher "ISO" number to get you brighter shots indoors. shots may look slightly grainer but it means its brighter and the 550d handles low light pretty well.

in auto mode you have no control over the ISO but put the camera into P mode which is basically auto but with access to more controls which you can override. now next to the shutter button there is an "ISO"button. experiment with the different numbered setting (100 being low 3200 being high) and you will see what I mean

How can you test a camera before use to be sure the flash sync is working properly.


Set camera up and aim at a blank wall. Place flash on camera, fire off test shots with camera set to flash sync speed and lens set to wide angle (eg 18 mm), ensure flash matches angle of lens. 
You will probably have to turn auto focus off, so that camera will fire, after taking photo/s use review to ensure that you have a nice even coloured piece of wall.
Any problems either with camera sync problems or flash coverage will show up in the test shots.
Camera sync, will show as part of the frame only exposed, for example you may find a horizontal line approximately 1/3 to 1/2 of frame with a proportion of the frame dark.
If you have flash "drop off" you will find the corners of your frame will be dark, you need to ensure that your flash angle specified on the flash and the focal length of the lens match.
Hope this helps Ian

Background is overexposed


So, the problem doesn't seem to be the flash if the actual subject in the foreground is exposed properly. My guess is that the background is being lit by another light source. Typically, your camera uses a flash for dark areas or what it gauges as a dark area. This doesn't adjust the background for additional light sources. For example, if you're standing outside and there's a tree covering someone that you're taking a picture of your flash will adjust to "properly" light that individual. However, because the flash was used for the main subject, the background is actually now overexposed. The overexposed background will show up as a brightly lit area because the camera had to adjust for the foreground. This will actually reverse itself when it's dark out - meaning if the background and foreground are dark, the flash will expose the foreground, but the background will be black. Hopefully, that helps you understand lighting and exposure. Now, to fix this problem when shooting, you would need to consider several options - 1. SLR camera with aperture and f-stop settings as well as compensation controls. This will allow you to control every element of the exposure, but you still need to be aware of the lighting behind the "subject" to properly expose your shots. 2. backlighting compensation - common settings on both SLR and point and shoot cameras that makes auto lighting conversions for backlighting and other common lighting issues. Test whatever options are on your camera to see what works best for your specific problem. 3. Photoshop retouching - you may take one shot with your subject exposed properly and a second shot with the background then merge the images together. 4. using a tripod to shoot without using the flash - this may give you the closest exposure to exactly what you see when looking at your subject.

Blurry pictures


Both of these problems are caused by underexposure. There are several causes for this. If you are set in AUTO MODE check the shutter speed and lens opening in the view finder. If the speed is less than 100 and the shutter is less than 5 and you are not using flash. You will probably get blured and dark pictures.  Practice shooting with your settings outside in sunlight , inside with lamplight, inside with flash and all of the above with motion. Check the exposure after each shot and make adjustments. In a short time you will get very good at setting your camera.

Everything is so dark!


If the camera is working properly with other lenses, then you have a problem with that lens. In M, you can set the aperture yourself, and the photos come out properly exposed. When the lens is set to auto, apparently it is going to minimum aperture and not responding to the camera's 'instructions'. The thing that makes me think so is that you say everything looks dark through the optical viewfinder. Normally the aperture stays full open so you can see and compose your shot, and only stops down to the correct aperture when you actually take the shot. I would suggest having the lens checked by an appropriate camera service shop.

Dark shadow on right side of picture


sounds like a shutter leaf dropping into the image. however, they are usually horizontal and more likely to manifest when in landscape mode. (horizontal, normal)
try using flash pointed up to ceiling.
also, could need to check for auto sync speed setting. usually 1/125 to 1/60. if its off, it could be catching the shutter in the wrong place.
check manual for settings for using flash.
