Ugh, I can't get the noise/grain to go away. I have it on the largest, highest quality setting.

If you have it on a high ISO it can give it a grainy look sometimes. I'm not expert on this though and I have a Nikon.

Yeah, I guess it's fairly high, 800. But, anything under that is super dark. I know once I get this down I'm going to love it, but it's driving me crazy!

Yeah that's not too bad. You just have to learn how to work it. Believe me I'm not very good at it either and I've had my camera for over 3 years. I finally have started putting it to manual and not taking it off and I think that's helped. Also the lower your shutter speed the more light comes in so a lower shutter speed will give you a brighter picture but if there's a lot of movement then it's hard to get it too low. I know for my kids I keep it around 1/30 to 1/50. If it's a still object then you can go below that.

So, lower the shutter speed, like make it slower? I had it on super fast because LO is always running around like a crazy.



I wonder if there are tutorials on YouTube or something, lol.

Yeah if you lower it it lets more light in. Do you know what you had it on? I know it's hard to capture them when they're moving faster. And I'm sure there's tons of videos, there's also a photography thread here on BG that I'm in and has some really talented photographers if you want the link I can get it.

Sure! Thanks!



I don't remember what I had it on now, since I've been fidgeting with it. :oops:
