congrads on your Pc camcorder the ispan ddv 920.

takng an indoorsho you must have plenty of light if you plan on filming inside , even in thebrightestdaylight outside an indoorshot to your eyes may look great but not to the cameras sensor.

to get the best shot

1. white walls all around a flood light behind the camera, but goto watch out for white wash.

2 even though the camera states no night mode yo may trick it and get even a graiier shot. i recommend you fool around with the Ev or Ep setings rasie or lower them that'll get you some more brightness. god luckand sorry you are dissappointed in the vid

I agree that sometimes it can be a little dark, but all pictures and vids are easy to fix as soon as you get them into the comp. Pictures are the easiest as u can just use the window's editor to autofix and they turn out great.

Depending on which video editor you're using, this should be relativley easy as well.

This is something I do when it's important to record something, but it's too dark for video, and too far away for the flash to take a still. I'll take a still and brighten it later. Yes, it looks lousy, but it's far better than nothing.

The picture was at roome tempeture or natural lighting, but needs improvement

the Pic has Noise levels in there, and if you have the Histogram you may or may not understand it, if you do then more the better.

the eye can see a perfect pic, but what the camera sees is totally different, as I am in my room I can snap that pic and see all the details, but I know the camera will not show thefull shot the way my eye sees it.



to have the software its far better then having none.
