There are usually work-arounds for shooting in low light.
We can probably help if we know a little more.
Regarding low light situations:
Are you taking pictures with or without flash?
If you are talking of pictures with flash:
How far are you from your subject?
Are you using any optical zoom?
I'm feeling a little misled by all the postive hype and reviews that have been given to the Canon SD1100IS. It takes great pictures where there is adequate lighting, but when I try to take pictures in low light settings I have a heck of a time getting a decent shot. All my low light and night shots come out WAY too dark and the color of my light blonde hair turns gold or brassy orange, as do most of the objects around me. People look strange, for lack of a better word, and if I try to adjust different settings I either wash out faces or everything gets even darker. I hate to say it, but I'm really starting to regret this purchase. Maybe my settings aren't correct, but I feel like I have tried every combination possible! I have no idea how to fix these problems. Any suggestions?
