Try changing you're white balance [WB]
Light has different colours to it, depending on the source, which you need to compensate for.

All nite time pics are blacked out what can I do to fix it.


If the day time pictures are good then the setttings for the night shots must be selected according to the light intensity. Please check on the menu for night settings if you are intenting a low light shoot. Also make sure that the flash is active, in most of the present day samml cameras, the flash THROW is low and so the SUBJECT must not be too far as the picture will appear dark. So when using flash in a dark scene have the subject within 5-7 feet as the small flash will not be able to capture the openess. Also you can use a SLAVE flash to counter this and give a better prospective.

When taking pictures at night, i find that its not that sharp and clear. that goes for the video shots as well. how do i rectify this problem. changing the modes doesn't very much. shots during the day is...


Night shots without flash will cause your camera to use a slower shutter speed. This can cause camera shake. To avoid this, put your camera on a tripod. Also, you can raise the ISO to a higher setting...however, too high and you'll get more digital noise in the picture.

Night pictures do not come out


To take night photo's you need to use a tripod. this will enable you to take long exposures without the blur. If you use flash it will only illuminate objects near the camera.

How do i get good pictures when taking it during the night and able to focus the camera to get the real nature color of the drak


You'll have to use a tripod to get good shots at night, because in order to get a lot of colors in your photo, you will have to set it for long exposure times. Good luck, and have fun!

Very grainy pictures indoors at night


If you can adjust the ISO sensitivity to a lower number then the graininess will be reduced.

However, by reducing the ISO, you will need a slower shutter speed and a larger aperture. A tripod, table or other support may be necessary.

The "noise reduction" setting on the camera can also be adjusted a step up.

Taking pictures at full resolution and fine compression will also help.

Overall, at least try lowering the ISO, and using the flash brighter.

Out of focus shots at night


First, check to see if you're in auto or program mode, as opposed to manual or possibly even aperture priority (if it supports it). Typically, auto or program mode sets your shutter speed to around 1/60th of a second, which is usually good enough to hand-hold a flash shot without blur. The camera should emit enough flash - within its range, of course - to get a good exposure. You typically won't get a good flash shot if your subject is more than 10-12 feet away. If you want, you should be able to go back and look at the way your camera was set for each shot with a program like Photoshop or Elements. That information is stored as "EXIF" data, and if you select a file in Photoshop CS' file manager for example, you should be able to see what the shutter speed was on any given shot. Let's suppose you look at some old, blurry night-shots - the EXIF data, that is - that should've turned out OK and your shutter speed and everything look fine. At that point, I'd try taking some flash photographs using a tripod at night which would eliminate camera-shake as a possible cause of the blurry shots. I suspect that the likely cause was your camera wasn't in the correct mode though and once you get that squared away, it'll be OK. Good luck!
