Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S600 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Lost my manual

I lost my manual for this camera, and need to know how to set it up so that it will "take pictures" on its own. (For a posed family photo.) I was hoping there would be a way to set it up, get everyone posed, and the camera will do its own thing. Is this possible?

How do i take the best wedding pictures with ditigal camera


Pictures must be properly framed before you click.
See that you are setting your object against light.
See that you are not too far or too close to the object.
Landscape and Portrait should be properly framed.
A single person half pose will look good in Portrait.
Full group picture of 4 or 5 people looks good in Portrait frame.
Large group fits best in landscape.
Be quick in making choice of poses.
Before the crowd starts pouring in, see that you have finished clicking close ups of bride groom.
All the Best

I was somehow roped into shooting a friend's night wedding this weekend, even though my photography "expertise" is entirely limited to shooting in natural light. I am a total amateur (and my friend knows...


First, you MUST practice with the flash before you shoot the wedding. If at all possible arrive 2-3 hours before the ceremony with a friend/model to pose for you so you can practice with the settings until you understand what will and will not work.

Use manual exposure settings (e.g. 1/60th at f5.6) on the camera, and let the flash work in automatic mode to provide the light needed to shoot with the manual settings. Don't try to use flash on subjects further than about 10-15 feet as it won't provide enough light to go that distance - light falls off according to the "square of the distance", so the amount of light you have at 10 feet is 1/4th the light you have at 5 feet (rather than 1/2 the light like you might think). Practice with your model to learn how far your model can be before the flash falls off too much. To shoot at the greatest distance, open the aperture (e.g. f2.8). You can use a smaller aperture only when your subjects are fairly close.

I can't give you exact settings for your flash on a Nikon as I'm a Canon shooter. Look in your camera manual and the flash manual for iTTL.

Do NOT try to shoot in aperture priority. The camera will use a very slow shutter (appropriate for that aperture) to gather the background light, and the flash will provide "flash fill" and you will get motion blur from your hand-holding the camera and from the subjects moving during the long exposure.

Most ministers don't allow flash photography during the actual ceremony, so you need to shoot in available light during the ceremony. Normally you can use flash during the procession to/from the altar, but once the bride reaches the altar you need to stop using flash. If the ceremony is in a dark location (dark church) this can be very VERY difficult. You need fast glass, an f2.8 (or faster) lens for this and will need to shoot at the highest ISO your camera offers. You may want to return to the rental place to rent a fast lens if you don't have one already.

Obviously you need to stay ahead of the action. This means you need to get into the aisle near the end of the service and shoot the kiss from that location, and then shoot the couple as they proceed down the aisle after the ceremony.

If at all possible, take posed photos BEFORE the ceremony. Try to have a 1-hour window to take these photos that ends 1-hour before the ceremony starts. If you can't take the posed photos before the ceremony, try to limit the after-ceremony photos to just a few groups - some photos of bride and groom, with the whole wedding party, with the bride's family, the groom's family, and everyone (all family members and wedding party). Take 3 or more shots of each group so you can swap in eyes or faces if someone looks great in one shot and someone else looks great in a different shot.

Good luck!

You can recover photos from camera with asoftech photo recovery program. You can download the program from
http://www.asoftech.com/apr/

You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Start" and wait for it to do it's magic.

Empty Card


It appears that you have accidently formatted your card, this is one reason we should download all of our pictures after every session. I have done this twice, but of course my lost pictures weren't nearly important as yours but a loss is a loss, and I now transfer all my pictures to the computer after each photo session. Sorry about that!

Automatic shoot?


Look at 4-buttons control near LCD. One has Clock sign. It calls Timer. Press it and your camera will take picture after few seconds pause.

Take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for:

You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're cheap:
