Hello all, i'm excited to have found a forum such as this one!

I"ll jump straight in with something that has been bugging me for almost a year now. I Have a Kodak 7590 and am having some issues with night time shots with background lighting.

This camera has tons of settings and it's probably just not knowing how to set it for pictures as such. When I take a night time shot with low/mid surrounding lighting, most of the time that lighting will be cancelled out by the camera. I"ve tried all the settings that I know to try, but nothing so far.

I've read on here where a tri-pod helps, but I dont' have one YET. If someone here knows this camera or has any suggestions, I would really appreciate it. Thanks so much in advance!

The tripod helps a lot when you are increasing the Shutter speed!!!

Shutter speed—controls how long the shutter stays open. The shaking hand icon warns of slow shutter speeds. To prevent camera shake, use a tripod for slow shutter speeds.

To change the shutter speed, go PASM mode!!!

I usually use M ( manual ) to take night shots


Welcome to the Forum!!!

If you have not downloaded the upgraded FIRMWARE from the KODAK site I'd get going and do that. Print out instructions and do the download. Another site you may want to check out for KODAK info is. http://www.myfreebulletinboard.com/f...d&mforum=1

Have you seen my post with the Christmas lights? If so go there tommorrow and I will have posted the settings I used to take them. Manual mode usually but sometimes I use shutter priority mode and a very slow shutter speed. Then turn up the speed or turn down the speed to get what you need! Tripod is almost a necessity!

Rj's suggestion of the other forum is a good one as many other folks post there that do not post here. Just gives you more input and more brains to pick!
