Default Random photos and question!

Hello all~

So, I got a new camera today. I've been looking for a camera that takes good photos indoors but have been kind of undecided to whether I should keep this camera or return it and purchase a different one.

Here are a few photos I've taken of Miyavi today :3















I'm mainly looking for a photo that takes good indoor photos. Because I go to shows(concerts) a lot and like to take photos while there, with flash off preferably. It seems to me that the photos are kind of blurry..it looks okay under the light but bah :/ not sure.

To those who like to take photos of your dog(s) or just indoors in usual--What type of camera do you use?

The one I took the above photos with is an Olympus VR-340

P.S- Miyavi's eyes look crazy evil/messed up in pretty much all of these photos

Don't know why your flash fired and you still get a slow 1/30 shutter speed but you definitely need something with a better flash.
I doubt you want to go to dslr unless you want to spend a lot of money and spend the rest of you life learning stuff.
Do you use any editing programs? Picass, gimp, photoshop?

Thanks for the input! I'll check out the forums.

I don't use any editing programs. It came with some disk, not sure what it includes with it but I'll probably look into it tomorrow.

I was debating between the one I got and the Panasonic Lumix(can't remember which model :/ ) But the person there insisted Olympus was the better one and it said it has a setting with low light. Maybe I just need to play around with it better? Not sure.

I'll be sure to go to those forums though, thanks

That's the trouble with a lot of modern cameras now while everything is taken care of from light coming in to shutter speed focus etc some times setting it to manual mode does help So I would suggest you check the manual out to see what else you can set up manualy such as light coming in shutter speeds flash settings etc. Your pics looked ok but may need a little more light on the subject and didn't appear to be out of focus on any of the pics you posted it's a good make BTW you have got. But having a good quality of lense makes all the difference So if you have a camera with a Vivitar lense then you are rocking Another good thing to look out for is how much opitcal zoom have you got at your finger tips 4,8, or even 16 maybe? Optical zoom is far superior to Digital zoom IMHO

Here's some more information on the camera, not sure what lins it has but it is 10x wide optical zoom 4.2-42.0 1:3.0-5.7

I'm not camera saavy so I have no clue what that means, if it's good or bad *laughs*

Anyway today I was trying it out more, found out that it has scene selection! It actually has one particularly for pets. So I went and took photos of all pets I could(mine and my parents)

Miyavi was in diva mode today and wouldn't let me take that many pictures of her. Whenever I had the camera pointed to her she started barking and getting all mad at me So most of the photos I took of her were all blurry XD

Here are the photos of her and other pets(not all dogs :P )


















Those are my pets ^^ Some of photos honestly look like something I took with my cellphone

Hey they ain't bad a couple have a bit of bluring but if the subject moves you are going to get that. So look at the camera settings and switch on Image stabizer (it may be worded slightly differently though) if it's not on already
The resolution is good and again this can be decreased for less resolution but you get more pics on a Sd card or the camera's internal memory! Or increase the resolution for sharper pics but you get less pics on your card or camera's internal memory which most camera's have now again these settings can be found in the camera's menu/sub menus. Eg: I have a 5 mega pixel camera ( I think it's 5) So I can change the resolution to Good/Fine/Econemy settings and in any case if you run you photo editor disk through your pc any photos that don't look that good can be cleaned up on your Pc once you have installed the
disk on your pc And the 10x Optical Zoom is good! So before you take it back explore the setting more and play around with it! I am a bit of a techno phobe and often get bogged down with new fangled devices and thousands of features I will probably not use but some features are very usefull so worth looking at the camera's menu first!
