Heya kids...my name is Jake and I run a little website called http://www.digiraver.comand I have a quick question for the experts. I used to use a PowerShot S200 Digital Elph for my pics and there weren't too many settings so it was pretty easy to adjust for lighting conditions and whatnot. Now I am no photo expert so all of the extra settings on my new PowerShot A520 are kinda getting me bogged down. I take about 200 to 300 pics a weekend so I really need them to ALL look their best. I am not afraid to mess with the camera settings...I just have no idea what I am doing.

I need to be able to take pictures at raves. The conditions are typically like this...

fast action

dark but with random blasts of laser light, high intensity strobes, and lots of blacklights

um...not sure how else to explain it really but if you have questions I would be more than happy to answer. Also, we have been taking pictures at parties since 2003 and so far we pretty much have the camera set so that it takes a picture with the flash and then we have to hold it stil for another second cuz we keep the shutter open for another split second. Doesn't do to good for the fast action but it lets a lot more of the color in. Hard to explain...check em out at http://pics.digiraver.com

Thanks much!!!
