Yes that will happen if your camera is set for automatic.

Set your camera for manual by pressing the menu button.

You will have to tell it all of the conditions manually, such as ASA, lighting, and flash.

You can disable or control the flash by using the buttons located on the rear of the camera.

What is the purpose of the IR function?


IR means Infrared and is used to take pictures at night or in very dim light. If you are wanting to take pictures in low light or at night it needs to be turned on.

My husband pulls tractors at night at tractor pulls, everytime I try to get a picture its too dark, the lighting around the pull isn't the greatest but it has some light


There are several solutions to taking pictures in the dark or low light. Night time photography can be difficult without a tripod. There are three ways you can get a brighter photo
1. Larger aperture - Make sure the aperture is set to the lowest f-stop for the largest aperture. f/2.8 or f/5.6 depending on your lenses capabilities. Choose the lowest number
2. Longer shutter speed - A longer shutter speed will allow more light to hit the canera's sensor and create a brighter picture. Unfortunately with a longer shutter speed, you will probably need a tripod because the photo will come out motion-blurred otherwise.
3. Higher ISO - A higher ISO will make the camera's sensor more sensitive to light and therefore creating a brighter picture without having to have a longer shutter speed. High ISO, however, can introduce unpleasant noise/grain to a photo.

If you want to take your picture while holding the camera in your hands, I recommend the largest aperture (small f/stop) and a high ISO.
If you have a tripod, use it! and use a longer shutter speed since the tripod will hold the camera steady for you.

Good luck!

May cam has a problem in taking pictures in day light and in any place with light the picture become so light and has a many white line too but getting picture at night or in low light place the picture...


It could be 1 of 2 issues:-

1) Make sure all your settings are on Auto and try again. It may be currently set to a specific scene setting which is distorting your photos.

2) It may require a firmware upgrade. That will involve going to the Samsung website, following links to support/downloads and checking to see if there's an update for your camera.

I like the camera but I see other people taking pictures with their camera in a very lightly lit room and you can see the faces on screen to take the picture but with the c813 you can't see hardly anything...


Try Different SCN. If you're experiencing this problem with your night pictures try and use SCN night, the logo shows a moon and a star, with or without Flash.
Also try to adjust the ISO.

Action shot keep coming out blurry.


Shutter speed is too slow. Usually when you try to take pictures indoors early morning or at night games under lights. The ability too shoot action in low light cost $4,000 - $8,000 minimum. Google "Nikon D3" and "Nikkor 200mm f2.0" you'll get the idea.

The night setting results in blurry pictures


The grain is from underxexposure and the blur is from hand shake caused by low shutter speed. Try using a tripod. Also, change from auto settings and shoot in manual mode with a high ISO and low aperture setting. Good luck!

Low light wont turn off!!!


number1 be sure that you,re using energizer lithium batteries only.they,re the best.2 because these cameras have such a small flash and its placed in the front of the camera instead of the top,they,re not really made for night shots.but from 3-5ft you should get great pics at very low light.just put it on auto,and ignore the low light message,press down and hold for 2seconds then release.you should get great pictures this way.good luck,hope i helped

Grainy pictures at night


Hi

Low light without a flash will always cause grainy pictures unless you have a very high end camera that can shoot at very high ISO speeds like 6400 and up.

Try changing the camera from the green camera 'auto' setting to "P" and then press the Menu button (I think it's Menu) and look for the different mode settings. There should be one for Night or Night Portrait or similar, I can't recall Sony terms and I don't have one here to check sorry.

Your other option is to use the flash, try it with Red Eye turned on if possible.

Hope this helps.

Blury pictures


this probably comes because there is movement of the camera while pressing the shutter full down, especially in night or low light conditions it takes a very long time to take a picture , during that time you have to hold the camera steady . it dos not have a stabilizer (as far as i know) so there is no correction of movement (how little it may be) . you could try to intensivate the settings from standard iso to 400 ( 800 = 3 megapixel max) and the ev to plus 2 (in "bad"light) and the A mode switch to the lowest F size (i believe it is f2.8) than press the shutter halfway , than full (hold it steady)
