  • Who can explain my camera to me...?

    I am horrible at taking pictures and have no clue what settings I should use with my camera. It's a Sony DSC-P7 and if anybody out there knows what I should do, I am ready for a tutorial...

    Gary, Do you have a night setting? thats what I use without flash for corals. Then I just focus and shoot.

      the camera I have has a macro setting for up close shots, you might want to play with the blue balance and have a steady hand

          Go to this thread........its excellant. I knew nothing about this stuff & am able to take some decent pics now. Click on whatever section you want to learn from. The Exposure section should help a lot.

            My camera has a night setting, macro setting and several other options to adjust. I feel the colors don't even come close to the real thing and my close up shots never show details (e.g. polyp extension).
            Thanks for the link, Big E. It looks like this may help me...

                BTW Gary, you met the author of that site when you were here in LA. I'm sure you don't remember because it was at the frag swap and you had already started your 2nd beer

                  Madison, that may be true, but you have to keep in mind, the beer I drink actually contains alcohol and I drink it in a "Masskrug" and not in the size of a shot glass....
