I need to know how to put my camera on raw


The camera manual that came with your camera has very specific instructions regarding this. I suggest you read them.

The setting is in the menu part of the camera.

I set my camera to Manual setting but it takes blur photos. I am beginner and I don't know how to properly set the camera good for Manual setting. Any good setting for Manual? I will set that on m


The first number is the shutter speed and the second is the aperture. The two factors control the exposure.

The shutter speed (in this case 1.3 seconds) is how long the shutter is open to allow light to pass through the lens and strike the image sensor. The longer it's open the more light passes through. If there's not much light, like indoors or at night, the shutter needs to be open longer. A fast shutter speed can "freeze" motion, useful for things like sports. A slow shutter speed allows the subject to blur, useful for things like running water.

The aperture (in this case f/4.5) is a measure of how wide the lens opening is. The wider the opening the more light comes through. A smaller opening produces more depth of field.

The two work in tandem to achieve proper exposure. An oft-seen analogy is filling a bucket with water. You can turn the tap on all the way and fill it quickly, or just crack it open and let it take a long time filling drop by drop. Either way the bucket eventually fills up, but the two pictures may look very different.

I suggest you visit your local library and take a look at some introductory photography books. They will discuss the impact of shutter speed and aperture in much more detail than I can give here.

When I make photos during the night... they are ok.. just like a normal photo but when i make them during the day... they are so brighted... i think ive changed something on my cameras settings... but i...


I don't have a menu walkthrough for that model unfortunately, but according to the specifications sheet, here are the things to look for:
1. ISO - You probably want it set to auto for normal everyday pictures (ie not silhouette, or intentional washout) If its set to 400 that might have been the problem.
2. Exposure compensation you want this towards the middle for normal shots if its towards +2EV that can cause it to be washed out or weirdly colored.
3. Make sure you don't have manual settings for aperture and shutter speed. If you have a wider aperture (lower numbers) and a longer shutter speed, this can cause the picture to be too bright.
If you're having difficulty finding these options and can't solve the issue, please reply and I'll try to look through the manual to find specific steps.
Please leave feedback if this was helpful. Thanks.

Manual too difficult


It seems to me, after reading the Operating Instructions, that it's not possible to stamp the photos automatically while taking them (EXCEPT for when stamping TRAVEL DATES - see below).
What you can do is enter the Play mode, the stamp the photos manually- 1 to 50 photos at a time.
To do this, kindly look on pages 66-67 for detailed instructions (with illustrating images).

Be sure to set the correct time and date prior to stamping the photos. Look on page 16 for further instructions.

If you're taking pictures during traveling, you can set TRAVEL DATE, which will also have a reference to the day number of your travel (page 48).

Hope you'll find my information useful...
Good luck,
Pelu.

Photos have a black band at top and bottom. This has never occurred before on my Canon EOS Rebel XT. I use auto mode for all functions and have not changed any menu settings.


If you use the lens in wide and the f lash is not wide as same (if the lens is 18 wide and the f lash is 28 wide ) you will not get good photo so if use 18 mm wide lens then use 18 mm wide f lash and ( i have told about external flash )

"hand" icon flashing


Hello,

It's likely your photos are blurry from camera motion, caused by taking a hand-held photo with a slow shutter speed, rather than out of focus.

The hand icon flashes when you don't have enough light to take a crisp (not blurry) photo without either using a tripod (or a flash). The reason for a flashing hand is you can't "hand-hold" the camera at the current settings - you need to use a tripod. If you are "zoomed in" (on a telephoto setting for your lens) you can sometimes get a crisp hand-held photo if you "zoom out" to a wider angle setting on the lens. (You need a steadier hand to hand-hold a telephoto lens setting than a wide-angle lens setting.)

You may have changed a setting that sets the ISO (the normal setting would be "auto") and if so, if you change the ISO to a high number, or to auto, this will help you take better photos in low light. Check your camera's user's manual to see how to check/change the ISO.

When you have more light the icon will stop flashing. If you need to take hand-held photos in low light then you need to use flash, or get a better camera that has better low light capabilities.

To keep the video and images, transferr images to the computer:
  1. If you have a Compact Flash media card connected to your machine, plug the card in the reader and follow the instructions of the software program to transfer to your favourite photo software.
Another method is connecting your camera to the computer using the supplied USB cable:
  1. Install the camera software on the CD following the guides that came with the camera.
  2. Connect the camera to the computer using the USB cable connecting to the camera in the Digital Terminal under the Terminal Cover on the right of the computer (looking at the lens).
  3. Transfer using your favourite photo software, or the software installed from the CD.
Next question, yes, you can get regular pictures from this, use the dial to select one of the modes to shoot photos. This information can be found in your manual too...
