Re: shooting in dim light with Sony T1

My Nikon 4500 will routinely flash me if there's low light, and I just as routinely ignore it. Do not use a flash. Hold the camera very steady. Do not move it even after you fire the shutter. If it's like my Nikon, it will keep the shutter open long enough to get the picture. Motion will, of course, cause blurring.

Re: shooting in dim light with Sony T1

The T1 has the weakest flash of any digital camera. It is only rated for 4.9 feet coverage. So it is natural to want to try some low light techniques. But the T1 is also a point-and-shoot camera, with some scene modes. That means you have little control over low light situations. Under low light situations, it is best to use a tripod. But the T1 does not have a tripod socket. You want to set the shutter speed to a very low speed, the aperture to wide open and set the ISO to its highest setting. But the T1 will not let you control those adjustments. You can try the "Twilight" or "Twilight Portait" scene modes, and also set the Exposure Compensation to +2. Also set the flash to "off". Cross your fingers and fire away, even if the camera warns you there is not enough light. A dark picture is better than no picture. Sometimes you can "pump" it up with software.

Hello
When you look at your pictures are they dark, murky and hard to see? If you took pictures at a wedding, dance recital, theater performance or any indoor event and they came out dark, read on to learn why your pictures are dark, and how to fix this common camera problem.

Many people take pictures of indoor events, only to be unsatisfied with the final outcome of their photos. Although you may have bought the top of the line film or digital camera, there are a few limitations that you need to know about.
To correctly expose your pictures, you camera needs a lot of light. The compact point and shoot varieties adjust for this when you're outside during the daytime, and usually your pictures turn out fine, right? Well, then how come when you take indoor pictures, they sometimes come out too dark? There are two culprits; your zoom function and your flash.
Most compact cameras today offer a zoom function. When I used to work in retail photography sales, the first feature that consumers would ask for is zoom. People love to get close-up pictures without using their feet. Although zoom does bring your subject matter in closer, it also decreases the amount of light that can get into your camera. Essentially, the more you zoom, the less light your camera can receive, and your pictures will be darker.
So, if your taking pictures indoors, in a dark church, gym or other window-less room it is very difficult for your camera to get enough light to properly expose your pictures.
This is when most photographers decide to turn on their flash. The flash on your camera is a great tool to illuminate dark situations that are in close proximity to the camera. Most built-in flash units are designed to allow the light to travel 8-10 feet away in poor quality light and up to 15-20 feet in brighter situations.
What most camera users fail to realize is that although your zoom function is visually bringing you closer to the action, you flash cannot reach that far to illuminate the subject, and your pictures will be dark.
Hope it helps, if so do rate the solution

Indoor Photography


what's probably happening is this: Since the light is low, the shutter must remain open for a relatively long time. If you're hand-holding the camera, you'll get blurry shots. Using a tripod will eliminate this. It doesn't typically happen outdoors because there's usually enough light to permit very fast shutter speeds (>60th of a second or so). Some newer cameras offer image-stablization for those lower-light situations. The camera or lens makes very quick adjustments to compensate for your moving when taking a shot. Hope this helps! Best wishes
