Fish photographing I have a HP 3.5 (i think) and it takes great pictures of family pets etc ... but, how do I take clear pictures of fish? Yeah, things in water it doesn't capture so well, everything comes out very blurry. I use a lot of light, don't zoom, use the action settings and all that jazz, but still it doesn't come out nice. Please help me

Re: Fish photographing

I have had good luck with fish pictures by pressing the front of the lens barrel up against the glass. This blocks out reflections that the glass will cause and it also holds the camera very steady. If it is a small curved glass bowl, make sure that the glass lens does not actually touch the glass. You could scratch the lens. If the fish are in a small container, you will have to use the "macro" feature on your camera so that you can "close focus". If you have to take a photo with the camera lens away from the glass, the camera just may try to focus on the glass instead of the fish behind it. If this occurs, just point the camera at something nearby that is the same distance as the fish; press the shutter button half way down. Then swing the camera back to the fish and press the shutter button the rest of the way down. Never try to take a flash picture of anything behind glass as you will end up with a great shot of your reflected flash. However if you have the camera lens pressed against the glass, you can use flash if necessary.

I'm not able to take pics of fish tanks!! i always am asked to raise my flash but the pix just turns bad with flash light spoiling the beauty of the fishes!!


Hi manjesh1412 ,

  1. If the fish tank has a light in it which is bright enough that you see things in it as you see things in day light , then you can turn off the flash settings and try and capture an image.
  2. If this works you can continue shooting more images , the reason why you have bad images when you turn off flash is because of the reflection of light from the glass of the fish tank.

Hope this helps .

Why can't I take more than 3 pictures with internal memory? It then says internal memory is full.


The camera that you have only has 10 MB of internal memory , if you are taking photographs at 12 megapixels only 3 photographs would fit as each photograph would be around 3 MB each. I would suggest to buy an external memory card and take photographs on that. The internal memory is only for demoing and checking if the camera works and not for standard use. Buy a SD/SDHC card , they are very cheap nowadays and have immense capacity to hold lot more photographs.

When useing under water the shutter was so slow, when frameing a shot of a fish. By the time the shutter operated the fish was gone. can we lock the focus so it takes the picture quicker.


By pressing the shutter button half-way until the camera "beeps", you lock in the focus. However, underwater in a waterproof housing, I'm not sure you can hear the beep.

SETTING FOR UNDERWATER PHOTOS USING A CYBER-SHOT DSC-W220


Under water scene selection mode in the camera is to capture the images of the objects inside the water like fish etc. It gives a clear picture of the objects under water unlike other modes. It does not mean that the camera is water proof and you can insert the camera in water and capture images. If you have any further questions, please reply. Regards

Unable to photograph


I think you meant to say at 3 o'clock (see picture). If not, I don't see the clock you speak of. But, try and answer your question ... this is the Timer clock. It's on and waiting to be set.

You might still be able to take photos, it will just happen after 3 seconds.

I think you have the timer on. Turn it off by pressing the Pad left, then Up to select Off and then press the center of the Pad (OK) to cause a check mark to appear next to the Off word.

Try this and let me know what happens.
