In order to setup your camera for an indoor event you have a couple options.
One, very simply go ahead and press the function button here in the center to access the function menu, and instead of using the manual mode like we normally do move over or use the left navigation button to go over to the scene mode. And here I have a couple options, go ahead and click display down here the display button to access this menu, and move that over one to indoor.
Now, what this is going to do is it’s going to have the flash be automatic, the ISO be automatic and the white balance is automatic as well. And the white balance is automatic because it assumes that the indoor lighting is tungsten. If that’s the case, then you’re okay. The ISO automatic may not be such a good thing and the flash also automatic may not be such a good thing and I’ll explain why, but if you like this option you can just go ahead and click function to escape the function menu, and go ahead and take a picture as you normally would. Remember press the shutter button halfway, focus first on your subject and then go ahead and press it the rest of the way, so you take the picture.
If you’re not happy with these results, the other thing you can do, and this will definitely help certain images, let’s go back into the function menu. Press the function button again, instead of using the scene mode to automatically set up the camera we’ll go back to manual. We normally use manual because it does give us control over things like ISO, and white balance, which we do like to change quite frequently. Go ahead and go down to white balance. Change this accordingly, if you are using tungsten lights go ahead and set at the tungsten. If it’s fluorescent lighting then go and use fluorescent. Today, you can have some fluorescent light bulbs with a very yellowish cast because that’s how they’re designed, so you would choose tungsten even though it is technically a fluorescent light. But you can see on the back of the screen what is going to produce the best color for your image, and go with that. Go ahead and press function to escape the function menu.
Now, let’s say it’s a large party and they are all sitting down on a long table, and you want to take the picture of everybody. Now if there’s a decent amount of light again, we’re indoors, it’s not a huge amount of light, so you can completely avoid using the flash, and use a low ISO, but if you use the flash in this case what’s going to happen is the people on the full ground will become very well lit. The people on the background will be very, very dark, and that’s because the camera when it uses the flash it assumes that there’s plenty of light for everything. And in this case there isn’t going to be because the flash is really only good for things that are maximum 10 feet away.
So what you’re going to want to do is turn the flash off, press the right navigation button here to access that flash option and go ahead and turn that off. With the flash off, your dependent on ambient light alone, so what you’re going to do is increase the ISO. Press the up navigation button here to choose a higher ISO.
Now you may want to test something first for example, I have mine currently set at 200 I’ll press a shutter button halfway in order to focus on my subject, and I’ll look down here at my shutter speed. My shutter speed currently indicates one over 640 which in my case that’s pretty fast, but if yours for example, in a low light situation says anything less than 1/16, you may want to increase the ISO even more. If it’s more than let’s say 1/200 or 1/250 you can definitely decrease the ISO in order to maintain a better quality image.
So remember that manual mode set the white balance, change the ISO accordingly if you’re not going to use the flash. If you are going to use the flash, it really doesn’t matter go ahead and set a lower ISO to get a nice clean image.
