    Under camera settings i have these options:

    Flash: on/off/auto

    Shooting mode: Single shot/smile shot/beauty/panorama/action shot/cartoon

    Scene mode: SCN none/portrait/landscape/night/sports/party+indoor

    Exposure value Adj from -2 to +2

    I think these are all the setting's, not sure if there is an advanced menu?

    Has an 8mp lens, any help with these setting's would be awesome! Keep in mind i need to be in the dark to capture the image, pretty sure any light will wash out what i'm trying to capture. I understand i may not be able to accomplish what i want with this camera but if i can get the setting's geared more to what i need i can at least try :eek:

    Scene mode to night and try lowering Exposure to two... I think only those two settings will help you, do you have a picture of any of your attempts because it would be easier to help you if you did.

    I would like to join the TPU Photo Club. My wife and I have been taking photo classes and love it, always had a great interest in photography but when you can apply techniques your photos come alive.

    Current equipment:
    Cameras: Canon 20d, Canon 40d
    Lenses: All Canon EFS 17-85mm, EFS 18-55mm, 50mm fixed f1.8, EF 75-300mm

    Best picture... umm... I am not sure yet... I am building an album I will share with you all...

    Lots of auroral activity this year -contrast/brightness were tweaked a little.

    Question for Garyinhere: What settings did you use for the moon picture?

    You almost take it like a daylight action shot. Settings: f/11 1/500sec, Iso 1600 :toast:
    The moon make a ton more light than people think so you really have to use a faster shutter speed and close down the f stop to get depth of field :toast:

    i like this thread too much, just a note can u put beside member name which camera he use, cuz i like many pictures and why i want to know which camera he use i should search hole thread to read him first post.

    other thing better if every member put camera he use and the lens that will be great.

    and i vote for 2nd thing cuz people always change the camera and lenses, what u think guys
