Thread: Night shot problem

  1. #1

    Default Night shot problem

    Hi..I'm really new to photography. I found out that I need to get a tripod to take night shots to prevent shaking. I already bought that but now, I noticed that my pics turned out grainy. Is there a way to correct this problem? Btw, Im using a canon A70. Im using manual settings, with the folowing configrations: Av 5.6, Tv 3.2 and Metering Mode set to evaluative. Thanx alot for any advice given. I'll try to post the pic soon

    What ISO are you shooting at? At higher ISOs the shots tend to be more "noisy" (thats what you are seeing i suppose. Grain is for film"

    Try shooting at a lower ISO and see if you get the same problem. Noise can also come out at low light levels.

    My ISO was indeed set at 400. Wat exactly does the ISO does? It seems to make my photos slightly brighter. Sorry,I cant upload the photo.

    For most DC :-

    Lower ISO = Lower Noise

    Higher ISO = Higher Noise

    normally i take at higher ISO only when lighting conditions is bad...!
    Rest of the time...ISO 50

    cheers
