Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S75 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Can the DSC-S75 shoot in B & W?

From where I can tell there seems to be a scarcity of Scene Modes in the S75 (compared to the Canon G1 and esp. the Nikkon Coolpix). Specifically, can one shoot in Black & White with this camera? Or do you depend on doing later on your computer? ' Also, can one add a zoom lense to this camera? Again, the Nikkon Coolpix has that option. I appreciate the help, thanks...! -- Mark Perry

Re: Can the DSC-S75 shoot in B & W?

As you specifically asked about B&W, I would like to add more . It's B&W is very simple. It just takes the intensity of the pixel out of RGB values. The result is the same as the one that you can get from imaging software later. The result is different from real B&W film.

Re: Can the DSC-S75 shoot in B & W?

Scenes modes are for when you aren't sure about the settings yourself and just want the camera to try to figure it out. They can work pretty well, but they are more for the point-n-shooter. With the manual capabilities, those are where I'd focus my attention. Still, the scenes modes are adequate for the types of situations that most people will need: • Twilight (low light shots, long exposures) • Landscape (focus locked to infinity, small apertures, flash cancel) • Portrait (large apertures) Beyond that, and you're likely to use either Auto or the Full Manual Mode. Of course, you can shoot in B & W. This is a very basic function for most digicams, and a walk in the park for advanced cameras like the S75. I'd also bet that a S75 B&W shot with the Sharpness turned down to -2 would make for a very interesting and moody shot. You can add a zoom lense. In my opinion, the best tele lens for the advanced-class Cyber-shot family members (S75, S70, and F505V) is the Olympus B-300. You'll have to do a search of your own to find it. It's rare now, because it seems everyone has sort of "discovered" its capabilities --- Sony users, Canon users, Olympus users. Get one if you can.

How do you repair when the flash in DSC-H3 is not responding?


Hi,

Check if the Flash unit in the Camera is popping up automatically.
Check if the Flash is set to Flash Forced Off. If it is set to Off, then set it to Forced On.
Please check if the Camera is not set to the following settings:
REC MODE is set to Burst or Exposure bracket mode.
Scene Selections modes like:
ISO High Sensitivity mode.
Advanced Sports Shooting mode.
Twilight mode.
Fireworks mode.
Set the flash to Flash Forced On when the mode dial is set to M or when Landscape mode, Beach mode or Snow mode is selected in Scene Selection mode.

This should resolve the issue.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I want somebody to tell me the best custom setting for canon G9 when you take photo at night.let say Las Vegas at night


All recent Canon point and shoots, including the G9, have special scene modes. There are two which would be very good for "Las Vegas at night". These are "Night Scene" (if you have a tripod), and "Night Snapshot" (no tripod needed, but less spectacular results). You may read more about them here:

It has Multi AF, Center AF or fixed focus. The V1 i had went to 800ISO, if you turn the ISO up a little more may you can set a faster shutter speed. I think the only priority settings are the "scene modes" there may be an action ssetting in the scene modes.

DSC-S75 focusing problems...


Without seeing a photo, here are a few possibilities. 1) Shutter speed too low (camera shake). 2) Camera is focusing on something in the foreground. 3) Focus not locked, low light, low contrast scene. Items 2 and 3 can be corrected by manual focus. Set the focus to 1 click below infinity, depth of field will insure everything is in focus. For item 1 remember that the shutter speed must be 1/125 sec or faster at full zoom to avoid camera shake.

S75 Can firmware be set for ISO 50?


If Sony didn't anounce it- you won't be getting it.....ever. That's just the way it is with Sony. Buy their camera today and buy their newer camera tomorrow... there just is no middle ground. They don't ever issue firmware upgrades, sorry. This is in stark comparison with Canon which is well known for their product support and upkeep. Imagine, they even sent all their 8200 customers a free batch of their newer inks! FCOL ( that's "for crying out loud" ;^) The S800 will definitely be my next purchase and hats off to Canon for at least "caring" for their patrons.
