Just bought a new SLR and was wondering if anyone has this camera and could give a pointer on how to adjust the settings for optimal indoor photos. I am shooting closeup pix on a blue background. Normally 1/35 scale kits. I am using non-flourescent lighting.....two table lamps with hi-intensity incandescent bulbs......bulbs look a little like spot lights.

I am not getting consistent pics. I keep changing the lighting setting and shutter speed and need a little direction here......Thx Robert

If there is not a member with the same camera will appreciate advice on general indoor digital settiings.

Hi try changing your bulbs to day light type and are you using a tri-pod, if you are you will either have to use your shutter timer or get a remote control to avoid camera shake

What about the AS setting or what ever its called? The one that ranges from 100-400? what would be better for indoors? Thx Rob
