Hi Victoria, The problem you see is not with your camera, it is a property of.
All cameras, although digital cameras have it worse than film. It.
Is called dynamic-range: the difference between the lightest and.
Darkest part that can be seen in a single image. The only solution is to balance light between the dark and the bright.
Parts. Either add light artifically (the flash may do - or added lamps).
Or remove light by waiting for the sun to set. The easiest way is to.
Go with a camera that has a hot-shoe and add a powerful flash to it. Try the Olympus C7070, it produces very nice quality images and has.
A wide-angle lens which is great for indoor shots since you can get.
More into your pictures. Hope this helps, - Itai.
Are you trying for shots from outside through the windows, showing the interiors? That would complicate the lighting as you'd need to light the interior and flash or lighting from outside would reflect, so you'd need lighting of the interior from inside - while working from outside. Perhaps floods or bright interior lighting. Then color or temperature balance would be difficult. Perhaps multiple exposures, then layering them together in Photoshop?..
LOOKING FOR A NEW CAMERA,USING CASIO EZ40 BUT NOT THE CORRECT ONE FOR TAKING SHOTS OF INDOOR STAGE PRESENTATIONS (NIECES DANCING COMP).ALSO DOES NOT FOCUS QUICKLY ENOUGH FOR NEXT SHOT AND A LOT OF THE PHOTOS ARE BLURRY.I AM LOOKING FOR ONE THAT HAS A GOOD RECHARGABLE BATTERY AND LARGE LCD SCREEN WOULD ALSO LIKE TO HAVE A SHORT VIDEO FACILITY AND LASTLY A CAMERA THAT IS NOT TOO BULKY FOR ME TO LUG AROUND.aNY ADVICE WOULD BE APPRECIATED...
I'm not the expert here, but this is something that my last 2 cameras were able to do. On My s602, there is an Auto Exposure Lock (AE-L) button that, when pressed (and kept depressed), will remember the exposure settings, and keep them even if the environment or exposure changes. I would point the camera 'away' from the window, towards some much darker spot. I would then press the AE-L button and hold it. I would lastly return to the window shot and take the picture. What normally happens is that the window will be over-exposed, but the surrounding cabinets will have the correct exposure, provided the spot you chose originally had a similar light.
Alternatively, if your don't have an AE-L button, you could achieve the same results if you have full manual control of the camera's shutter speed/aperture settings. Mike..
THe new Nikon Coolpix has a feature called "d-lighting" which specifically compensates for this issue. Do some internet searching and look at some reviews and you'll see what I mean. The picture comparisons are very striking...
