Help me please (1 image)
Here are a couple of photos I took today with my Z812 IS using an 812 filter in museum mode (because it was during a graduation) Why are these photos so grainy? I have one more chance next week at her high school graduation, and I had better not mess that up. Thanks.

Because you used a high ISO setting. Consider buying a tripod if you can use it in that ceremony. If a tripod is a valid option, disable IS, put the lowest ISO, use the largest aperture you can and use the self timer.If not tr to keep ISO setting as low as possible and use continuous shooting.VictorBucuresti, Romaniahttp://s106.photobucket.com/albums/m268/victor_petcu/http://picasaweb.google.com/teodor.nitica/..

I was using a monopd and believe I was not moving, but IS was enabled...

On my monitor your pictures looked blurred. This is probably because you had IS/VR set to ON while using a monopod. When using a tripod or monopod turn IS/VR off..

Compact cameras have very noisy sensors and the noise appears mostly under artificial lighting..

A monopod is not such a good solution as a tripod but helps you with the stabilization. Use ISO 100 at most and use the self timer. If the shutter speed is quite low try disabling the IS.Good luck!VictorBucuresti, Romaniahttp://s106.photobucket.com/albums/m268/victor_petcu/http://picasaweb.google.com/teodor.nitica/..

Use the flash. Your pictures are suffering from noise...

Too high an ISO for this camera to handle well in this lighting, apparently. I assume these shots are either at ISO 1600 or ISO 3200, which can be really noisy. (You can check the ISO by looking at the properties of these photos in your computer.) This happens a lot with digicams that have small image-sensors and lenses without large maximum apertures- how close were you? If you were zoomed in far, that's part of the issue- get as closer so you're not relying on a lens that's zoomed in too much..

Putting the camera in the "museum" mode you mentioned brings the ISO up to allow for a reasonable shutter speed in low light to make sure you "get the shot", but you may need to use a more regular program mode and flash in these circumstances...

I agree. Also I would try to use a shutter speed of 1/30s or faster..

If you use a flash, you may have a problem with shadows on the wall. I handle this by either having the subjects up against the wall, or far enough away that the shadow is not a problem..

I was zoomed in pretty far. I hope I can clean these up a bit in Photoshop CS3. Do you think I can?..

I am the wrong person to ask. I do not post process..
