Digital cameras allow you to take pictures at different quality setting. The higher the setting the better the photo quality. Higher settings use more memory then lower settings. If you intend to make prints, always use a medium or high setting. The low setting should only be used when all you want to do is view the pictures on your computer or send them by email or over the Internet.

Recommended camera settings for portraits:
Focal length: 100 mm
Aperture: F2.8 (as large a f/stop as is available for proper exposure)
Exposure / Shooting Mode: Aperture Priority / Portrait
Flash: Fill-in, if face is in shadow

Recommended camera settings for landscapes:
Focal length: 38 mm
Aperture: F16 (as small a f/stop as is available for proper exposure)
Exposure / Shooting Mode: Aperture Priority / Landscape
Tripod: Yes, for long exposures

Picturess are too green


there are advanced color correction modes,
Blue or dark pictures/videos
Keep your shooting distance inside of 2ft to 3ft, depending on
visibility and ambient light.
If you are using only one light, considering adding another light
(dual lights) or/and external flash accessory. The ideal
set-up is a combination of a light plus flash.
Consider purchasing the SeaLife Wide Angle Lens (SL975). The
fisheye lens allows you to get closer to the subject and fit more
into to picture frame.

For SeaLife camera with external light accessory (No external flash):
1) Set the camera's scene mode to Sea mode or Snorkel mode
2) Change camera's PHOTO and VIDEO White Balance
settings to DAYLIGHT.
For SeaLife camera with external light and flash accessories:
1) Set the scene mode to Ext. Flash mode
2) Change the VIDEO White Balance setting to DAYLIGHT.
For other underwater camera brands:
1) Set the Scene mode to "Auto" or "Underwater" scene
mode, as recommended by the camera manufacturer.
2) You may also need to change the White Balance setting to
DAYLIGHT depending on the camera's underwater color
correction or if pictures/video turns out red.

The correct camera settings Canon PowerShot SX100 IS


That depends on what you're taking a picture of, and what you want that picture to say to the viewer.
On a purely technical basis, the best settings for a portrait won't be the best settings for a landscape. You'll want a large aperture for the former and a small aperture for the latter, for example.
Then there are the artistic considerations. You might want to use different settings for a picture of a teenage girl than for one of her grandfather.
That's why there are so many settings. There is no such thing as the "correct" or "best" settings. It all depends on the picture and the photographer taking it.

How do I need my settings for clear and perfect pictures?


There is no single setting for perfect pictures. You'll need to change your settings according to your environment, which isn't always sunny and perfect either. If you don't know how to set these correctly, just use the Auto function.

Setting date and time on photo


As long as the current date and time are set correctly, the camera will always store the date with the picture. If you want to print the date with the picture, please refer to the documentation for whatever program you're using for instructions.

My pictures have a blue tint...I have a DSC-S75


If you took the pictures in fluorescent lighting they will have a blue cast. To correct that, you need to set the white balance option in your camera. Pictures of a snow landscape and others will also have a blue cast at times, unless you set the white balance correctly. There are many places online that discuss these settings for phtography in general.

D80 Nikon - dark in viewfinder


What you see through the viewfinder is not exactly what you get in your picture. It is possible that your settings are just off in the camera. To make sure that this is the problem, set your settings to Auto and try again.

The red light before the picture is taken is a setting you can turn on to indicate that you have focused correctly. You can turn this off in the menu if this bothers you.

Lastly, I do not think your camera is broken. You just need to read your manual to make sure your settings are correct when you take a picture. Hope this helps.

Nikon D100 Manual shooting help


The mode dial (topside left) must be set to M. That's it for manual settings - the camera won't check anything, and certainly shouldn't require the flash. You need to choose your own shutter speed and aperture settings to get a good photo, but the camera will let you take a picture no matter how you have it set.

Can't get the Date off the Pictures


First you have to go to the set up menu and set the correct time and date, then you can go back to the settings and select OFF for time and date. If you do not set the correct time and date , that default date stays in the picture.

A red box with clock flashing?


It means you need to set the correct date and time in the setup menu. It will keep taking pictures, but it's telling you that you have not set up the correct time & date in the camera.
