lucianmarza-

I would say the expocap did a good job on the WB. There are some blown highlight though and I would like to reduce the contrast a bit.

Have a great day.

golfntob,

I too have been in the exact same situation with you with similar results. Bottom line is this in my opinion. The camera doesnt handle un-natural light situations well. However, there are things you can do to improve your indoor results. I dont know the names of things to change so hopefully this makes sense. Try using scene mode and use party/indoor etc. Try a few different ones. For action shots, I have saved in U1 the settings of 1/1000, F2.8, +/- 0.7, ISO 200.

I still find myself using the old pocket olympus m800 for dark indoor shots. The P90 is sensational in daylight conditions. Hope this helps.

But other than that, I am moving from film to digital, I will spend 99% of my time with stills. Thank for any advice you might have. All the best from here in central Finland. Ned

Free991-

Welcome to the Forum. We're glad you dropped by.

Congratulations on your new P-90 camera. And thanks for posting your first photo, a macro or close-up. My only suggestion is that you might have moved in a bit closer.

Have a great day.

Sarah Joyce

I actually really like how the white flower is set in amongst all the dead leaves on the ground. I think closer to the flower would have not made such an impact.

Thanks for the information. I must say I will definitely try these settings & do some indoor shots tonight.
