feel like a stupid newbie
Hi ,

I wonder if you can assist me

I bought a sony hx100v and it takes stuniing pics outdoors!

Since I am a total newbie, I use the auto intellegent mode , the problem I have is indoor the pics come out with bright red color! Is there something I am doing wrong

Can you post an example of the type of shot you're getting indoors?

Most cameras have some probems with color casts on indoor shots under incandescent lighting, and will have an orange or red cast to the whole picture. The solution is to manually set the White balance for the lighting, OR to use a powerful enough flash to overwhelm the indoor lights. Usually, the pop up flash on the camera isn't enough.
If the problem is something other than this, then please do post a sample shot.

This could be a white balance problem. But as others have said can ou post an example.
