Question about Sony Cameras

1 Answer

Hello :) I have a Sony Cyber-shot digital camera...8.1 mega pixels! I am no Photographer and find that the manuals speak a language that is hard for me to understand :( My question is: I take closeup shots and I need the Best setting on my camera for this...I have not figured out how to accomplish that yet! A friend told me after seeing my photos that I need to up the exposure a bit...I don't know how to do this! I currently have my camera set on Easy and Tulip (macrow) How should I change my settings to get clearer non grainy looking closeup photos? Should I be using the zoom at all? Please Help :) Brenda :)

To "up the exposure a bit" you need to dial in positive exposure compensation. Since you didn't specify what model camera you have, I can't give you specific instructions on how to do that.

To reduce digital noise ("grain"), put more light on the subject. Use the flash if needed. Set the ISO as low as possible, assuming your camera allows you to set it.

Use a tripod or other stable platform.

Use any part of the zoom range, as appropriate for the picture.

I would suggest that you go to a bookstore or your local public library and browse through the photography section. An introductory book will explain much of the language, making the manual more comprehensible.

Try to right click on the image files while they are read on the memory card or on the camera hard-wired to your computer. Click on copy then click on your desktop of your computer to paste them. They may just be creating short-cuts rather than placing the file onto your computer.
