Taking action photos indoors without a flash.
That is the "Achilles heel" of the small digital camera
.. (meaning the weak point of the small digital camera)
A digital camera that can do what you want, will cost over $700.
1. Use a flash, but have someone distract the puppy so that it is not looking at the camera. That should eliminate the "ghost" eyes.
2. Set-up one or two lamps with bright lights (about 200 watts each).
If you have an interest in learning more about photography, think about getting a camera that has some manual controls too.
The Canon A590IS is very affordable and also has image stabilization.
You can keep it in "auto" mode until you learn how to use the manual controls.
If your interest is toward a ultra compact camera (without manual controls).
I suggest you get one that also has an optical viewfinder so that you can use it in very bright sunlight.
Not many ultra small cameras have viewfinders.
Look at the Canon SD series of cameras with the 2.5" LCD:
.. SD1100IS, SD850IS, SD950IS, SD770IS
Look at the Sony W series of cameras:
.. W120, W130, W150, W170
Hello everyone, I was hoping I could get some camera advice.
My birthday is coming up and I am thinking about asking for a camera. I have really gotten into taking pictures and I want to see if my parents would get me a better digital camera. I was wondering if anyone could reccomend a camera for maybe a beginner.. I want a good one but nothiing too advanced because I am just learning... I am guessing my parents would spend around 300 (give or take)
I really enjoy taking pictures of pets/animals and outdoor/nature shots. I have always had the $150 digital cameras but they never seem to capture what I want.
I like know what I want in a camera but I get confused as to what everything means. I basically want a camera that takes a really clear image and can snap a shot fast.. for example so I can snap a few quick shot of an animal moving around with a 10 hour delay in between lol...
I also noticed in just the average digital cameras I have used its impossible to take a good picture of certain things. Like for example my puppy. Inside if I take a pic she just looks like a big blurry blob because shes always moving. The only way to get a decent picture of her is by turning the flash on, but the flash makes her eyes look funny and doesn't capture how she REALLY looks.
I want a camera that captures how she looks indoors so I dont't have the effect of the flash distorting how she looks. Sorry if its confusing I just don't know what I'd look for in a camera that would help with this. Do you have any reccomendations?
Thanks for your time
