I have a canon 40d digital camera that I am having a hard time taking pictures indoors - they come out bluury and with a yellow tinge - I work mostly in M so I control the light with 1600 ISO - ANy ideas...


Yes you need to change the white balance (WB). If the pix are yellow it is because the white balance is set to daylight and you are shooting under tungsten(orange) and/or fluorescent (bluey green).
Try the WB in auto but sometimes auto doesn't work perfectly, or if shooting under tungsten only change to tungsten etc
If you want to be sure to get the correct balance shoot a white card slightly underexposed and correct it afterwards in whatever photo software you use.
The blurry is caused by too low a shutter speed but if already at 1600 iso you cant go much higher without running into noise problems so use a flash gun on auto.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.

I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply and remember, even if you don't vote for me a please and thank you goes a long way

Indoor photos are yellow.


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.

My gs500s colors are bright pink and i tried changing white balance and nothing works


Try going into "reset" master mode. otherwise you need to make sure your camera is shooting on the right setting for the light you are using. For example, when shooting in daylight with interior light setting (approx. 3200k) your photos will look off color and yellow or pink because sunlight is 5600k approx.,. . . contrary while shooting indoors with incandescant lighting if the camera is set for sunlight exposure (5600k) the picture will look blue. Make sure you read the manual on how to white balace, but first take the camera out of AutoExposure settings to do all the settings manually. Auto focus and auto exposure are for rookies and these types of errors will happen. Always try to do manual iris and manual focus for best results zoom in and get your focus on the subjects eyes then zoom out and frame up your shot.

Dark pictures using flash


You could try increasing the exposure level (press AV+/- while rotating the selector wheel to the right) but this will increase the time the shutter is open and increase the possibility of picture blur. Only other thing to do when shooting indoors is to change to a high ISO - 1600 for instance. This reduces the time the shutter is open so working together with the first suggestion you may not notice any difference!

If still too dark, you need a faster lens - you can pickup a 50mm f/1.8 lens quite cheap - this is an excellent indoor lens as the low F number means it lets in lots of light. The fixed focal length means you will have to move around to frame the shot, but they are indispensible for indoor work and a lot cheaper than a f2.8 zoom.

EOS 30D is slow to fire.


Are you sure you aren't in the delay setting in drive mode? This camera has 2 delay settings, one for 2 seconds between when you press the shutter and when it takes the photo, and one with 10 seconds delay - often used when you want to be in the photo (e.g. self-portrait or group photo).

If you aren't in the delay mode, then I need to know more about your settings. What shooting mode are you using? What type of photo are you trying to take (portrait, landscape, sports)? Are you shooting indoors, outdoors, bright sunlight, overcast, etc.?

I have a canon ixus 85is camera. iwant to be able to set aperture and shutter speed.i am concerned about shooting fast moving objects.


Hello tonyhart,

The Canon IXUS 85 IS camera was sold as the Powershot SD770 IS in the USA. You can download the manual for this camera from this page at Canon.com.

This camera has a Kids and Pets mode that helps when taking photos of faster moving objects. Details are on page 72 of the manual. Give that a try. If that doesn't work you will need to go into Manual Mode - details are on page 74 of the manual.

You may need to increase the ISO. See page 69. If you set the camera to a high ISO the images will not be as clear, especially in the darker areas - this is called "noise". This is one of the trade-offs we need to make to shoot in low light. If you change the ISO remember to return the ISO back to Auto or a low ISO setting (e.g. ISO 100) when you are done!

If it still doesn't work it means you simply don't have enough light. This can be a big problem with indoor sports - a person's eye adjusts to the low light and it looks "bright enough" to our eye, but it isn't bright enough for many cameras. This is why professional photographers spend the big bucks to buy the big cameras you see them using to shoot sports photos - those cameras have lenses and sensors that are better able to take photos in low light.

Good luck!

Over-exposure with AF Nikkor 70-300 telephoto


Friends have you tried not using the A-Aperture mode?? Set in on P-for Program or M-for Manual, this should produce the colors you are hoping for. If your photo is still "hot" use the + or - button called the Exposure compensation button on the top of the camera, push that little button and turn the outside main control dial where your right thumb sits 1 third stop at a time, (you have 4 to 5) The + adds light to your photo and the - will make your photos darker play with that and let me know.

Sizes and their corresponding resolutions


Personally I would select the highest setting offered. In my case, there are 3, good, best & bestus, or maybe its better. That should give you better results. All blurry can mean other things too, like shooting indoors, at night or similar low light situation. And what happens is: camera select a slow shutter speed in order to give you the right exposure or amount of light. And if its using a slower shutter speed - you have to hold the camera steady, otherwise you'll get blurry shots. which I shoot in low light, I'll find something to lean on or some way to brace myself so that I (hopefully) won't get the "blurs" And using the lcd display (instead of viewfinder) may contribute to the blurs as you generally hold the camera out to arms length to view & shoot which makes it difficult or impossible to hold the camera still/steady in that stance.
