Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Indoor photos are yellow.

All of my photos shot indoors with lowish or low light levels turn out with a pronounced yellow cast. I tried test shots with all the different settings relating to indoor shooting and none surmounted this difficulty. Yet I see pictures from others' cameras of the same scene that are well lit. What am I missing?

Your camera is choosing (or you chose) the wrong white balance setting. Try Auto White Balance, and if that doesn't work, try tungsten white balance. You could switch to daylight color bulbs in your lamps.

How do i take indoor actions shots with the rebel xs


Indoor actions shots are tough to take because of dim lighting and fast moving subjects. With the right settings and equipment, it can increase your chances of getting that perfect shot.

Pronounced shadows on people in indoor photos


This is usually a very simple fix. You may be holding the camera in such a way that one or more of your fingers partially blocks the built-in flash of the camera. When this happens, everyone notices the flash has fired, but they do not know that part of the light was blocked, leaving a part of the photo in the shadows.

Find out if this is the problem by picking up the camera as you might normally do, but while maintaining the same grip - turn it so that you can see where your fingers are in relationship to the flash on the front of the camera. Notice where your fingers naturally land when using the camera and and try to remember to keep fingers away from the flash. You might even let someone else try and see if the shadow is gone in their photos. Look how they hold the camera - notice the location of the flash and where their fingers are.

I have the fuji s1000fd and i need to take some indoor basketball photos today what should i set the camera on ? Most of my pix are very yellow.


You need to set the white balance for the kind of light in the gym. Take a few test shots while changing the white balance each time until you're happy with the color. For indoor shots, set your ISO to at least 800 and turn off the flash unless you're 10-12 feet from the action. If the camera has some sort of shake reduction, turn it on.

Indoor photos are generally poor quality - PLEASE HELP!


Raise the ISO, set the camera to take pics at the maximum megapixels and highest quality, check your white balance....what is it set for?...auto white balance or something else? Experiment with different settings under different lights to see what you like best.

Yellowish tint on faces, shadows, gold backgrounds


Check the white balance setting of the camera. As you have a yellow cast, it could be because you are using it in Fluorescent (or Tubelight) setting. Changing this to Auto should solve this problem.

Olympus D 555 Blurred action shots


Indoor actions in low-to-moderate light are very difficult. This is why professional photographers pay thousands for DSLRs with high quality high-ISO settings, and thousands more for big and heavy lenses that can shoot with a large aperture (small f-stop number) to get the most light into the lens and onto the sensor.

Your Olympus D-555 only goes to ISO 400, which is not suitable for indoor action shots, and the lens is f/3 to f/5 which is not a fast lens. What you are trying to do is simply not possible with this camera. You need good quality at ISO 1600 (or higher) and f/2.8 or faster for the lens. This will give you 8 to 16 times as much light gathering capability in low light situations, letting you use a much faster shutter to capture action shots in low light.
