Press the bottom part of the square with the "OK" button in the middle. It has a picture of a clock. "Off" will be highlighted, so scroll down to the picture of the clock, and it will show the message "Selftimer On: A photo is taken automatically 12 sec. after shutter button is pressed." Press the OK button to activate this mode. Now it's just like taking a regular picture, just press the button and run over to the group and in 12 seconds it will take the picture.

Gene, I have a disassembled Malibu 300 W transformer with timer. I need a wiring diagram to reassemble it. Can you help?


Sorry, I don't have wiring diagram for Malibu ML300, and have not taken one apart. And I would like to see what you have.
Other people have written asking how to reassemble various timers, and I recommend turning back the hands of time and photographing each part before it is taken off.

Here's what we can do:
Photograph what you have using 'macro' setting on camera for close-ups, and then post photos on flickr or piccassa.
Then add a comment with link to photos.
Possibly we can puzzle it back together.

Whats the best setting for taking pictures when out at night time?


Photographyat night can be used to create mysterious and amazing photos. When I sayphotography at night I mean the hours from around sunset until when the starsare clearly visible. The long exposures associated with low light can createunique effects and unusually sharp photos. And when I say long exposures I meanexposures lasting from half a second up to even 30 seconds. An exposure thatlong would seem impossible to prevent shaking, so my technique that I use veryoften is to compose the photo like I would normally and then to set theself-timer so the camera takes the picture on its own and I don't even have totouch it.
EquipmentOptions For lowlight photos, a tripod (or some kind of substitute) is very necessary. I almostalways keep a tripod in the trunk of my car or carry a miniature tripod aroundon trips. A miniature tripod can be very handy because it is typically smallenough to fit in a pants pocket so it can be taken anywhere. Some photographerscarry around a bean bag or something like it so that can set their camera downand tilt it in any way they like. Some of my best pictures I have taken simplyby setting my camera down on a newspaper stand and setting the self-timer.

Many photographers are convinced that they need a cable release to take longexposures but the self-timer release option on just about all cameras worksjust as well. All you have to do is set the camera up, configure theself-timer, press the shutter button, and wait the specified amount of time(usually 10 seconds) and the camera will take the photo automatically. And youdon't have to touch the camera so the photo won't be blurred from hand shaking.

Night Photo Opportunities
Landscape Photos - My favorite kind of night photousually includes a landscape with some kind of foreground element, some sort offraming element, and lots of lights throughout the scene. Adding some kind offoreground item to the frame helps to create a greater depth of field, thistechnique works for any kind of photo but I have found that it makes nightlandscape photos much better. Another tip you should keep in mind is that themain subject of a night photo should probably be the most well lit. Lots oflight is good for a night exposure but there should still be some focus appliedto the major objects in a scene.
CapturingMotion - A verypopular kind of night photography includes a steady camera with some sort offast moving object streaming through the frame. When cars are photographed atnight with a long shutter speed, the headlights make a bright pathway of lightand in most cases the car can't even be seen. Another option would be to set upyour camera next to a lighted area with lots of people moving like a night clubor an illuminated street. Just about any kind of motion captured with thecamera steady produces a very interesting photo.

Balancing Aperture and Shutter SpeedWhen taking photos at night you should keep aperture in mind as well asshutter speed. It is without question that you will need a long shutter speed,but the aperture that you choose will provide the depth of field. When I takenight photos I usually have a very long shutter speed (5-15 seconds) and a verynarrow aperture (high f-stop). This combination creates a huge depth of fieldand makes everything very crisp and in focus. Of course sometimes you will notdesire a great depth of field and in those situations you should widen theaperture (small f-stop).

Calculating the ExposureFiguring out what exact shutter speed and aperture you should use can bevery challenging in Manual Mode. I would recommend that you just try manydifferent combinations for each scene and eventually you will refine thesettings that you prefer. Another technique I use is Bracketing, if you bracketall your photos so the camera takes multiple exposures at different settings,you are more likely to end up with a photo that has a satisfactory brightness.
Conclusion There is no exact science to night photography; I hope some of these tips willguide you in the right direction. But the best night photographers are usuallythe people who experiment a lot when they are taking low light exposures andeventually they figure out the best scenes and best exposure settings to match.Just remember that you need a very long shutter speed setting, and that youneed to keep the camera very steady.

This command dial setting, which looks like a clock, is the self-timer mode. Turn the dial to this setting and press the shutter release. The camera will start beeping or playing a tune and will take a photo about 10 seconds later. You can cancel the timer by switching the camera to another mode (or turning it off) before the picture is shot.

Note that the timer mode is the same as P mode with the 10 second timer. There’s no way to operate the camera in, say, Av mode with a timer - something of a limitation. There’s also no way to change the time value.

Self-timer mode is commonly used for two things. First, it lets you take self-portraits - or group shots including you - if you put the camera onto a tripod. And second, it’s useful for slow shutter speed shots where camera blur might be a problem - you can put the camera onto a tripod and take the photo without risking camera shake caused by your finger pressing the shutter release. In either case it’s best to focus on the subject first and then switch the lens to manual focus mode once you’re satisfied. This avoids the problem of the camera autofocussing on the wrong thing when it takes a photo unattended.

Note one detail. Normally when you take a photo you’re looking through the viewfinder and your face is therefore covering it. However, in self-timer mode the viewfinder is left uncovered and stray light can enter the camera, possibly throwing off the internal light meter. So when using the timer it’s wise to cover the viewfinder with something. Some camera straps include a plastic cover on one end that can be used to cover the viewfinder. Or you could put a grey or black plastic film canister cap over it if you have one around - they fit nicely. The one time this isn’t necessary is M mode since you’re setting both aperture and shutter speed manually

I wanna take a picture but i dont know how to make the camara wait 10 sec before it takes the picture


Hi,

Self-timer shooting:

This function lets you take pictures using the self-timer.
Fix the camera securely on a tripod for self-timer shooting. This function is useful for taking
pictures when you want to be included in the photograph.

1 Select [ON], and press Z.
2 Press the shutter button fully to
take the picture.
• Pressing the shutter button halfway
locks the focus and exposure.
• The self-timer lamp lights for
approximately 10 seconds, then starts
blinking. After blinking for approximately
2 seconds, the picture is taken.
• To stop shooting while in n mode,
press the shutter button fully again.
• To cancel the self-timer, press Z.
• The self-timer mode is automatically canceled after one shot.

Note:
• If sequential shooting is attempted in self-timer mode, the camera shoots 5
frames at most regardless of the setting.


Hope my info fixes your problem,
Thanx for using fixya,
cheers.

How to use face recognition on my toshiba l350 laptop


Normal 0 87dab65.jpgA growing number of digital cameras now include a Face Recognition mode. The camera detects faces in a scene and then automatically focuses (AF) and optimizes exposure (AE) and, if needed, flash output.
The technology can be effective when taking pictures of large groups, when a person is in the distance or when the subject moves into the frame. Even if a person moves, the camera will stay focused on it and adjust exposure. It is also effective when photographing people in bright light when the LCD is difficult to see.
Some digital cameras also have a tracking function that allows the user manually give priority to a single face. This comes in handy when taking photos in a crowd, at school plays and similar function.
Face the digital camera A person’s face must be facing towards the camera for Face Recognition AF/AE to work most effectively. Like so many digital camera features, it also works best when taking photos in good light.
Face Recognition, also known as Face Priority, is typically activated when switching a camera to portrait mode or a dedicated face-detecting shooting mode. Since the technology is hardware based, it is generally faster than manually composing and locking focus and exposure on a face.
A word of caution about using face detection It’s important to note that Face Detection (FD) may be associated with a multi-point autofocus mode, where the camera, not you, determines where to focus. When a face is not detected in a scene, the camera will revert to this mode.
Many photographers find multi-point autofocus mode to be inconsistent, if not unreliable. They use Single Area focus instead to have precise control of where the camera locks focus. They only switch to FD mode when photographing people.

Using my camera


IMHO ---- A lot depends on the lighting available for shot, outdoor and bright is best. Use AP setting (dial on top), Aperture Priority, and set desired F number (using thumb wheel, top right edge) as high an F as you dare, taking speed used into account, by watching it change in viewfinder (do not want a shaky slow speed!). The depth of field, hopefully with higher F, will be deep enough to catch back and front rows, in focus. A half press on shutter should trigger auto focus and give chance to preview in viewfinder. Good luck hope the weather behaves. Less light = less flexibility.....
