Digi Cam question: Sony DSC-W5

Discussion in 'General Chat' started by clax, Jan 6, 2006.

  1. I picked up a Sony DSC-W5 and I'm wondering why some images look over/under exposed when taken on the autosetting, in the same room, same position, same lighting conditions, one after the other.

    Check out the samples....

  2. Another
  3. wheres RCChris
  4. BTW,

    on the autosetting, sometimes it'll make use of the flash and sometimes it won't, under the same conditions I mentioned above....
  5. It sounds like either you're doing a poor job aiming the camera (which is confusing the metering) or the camera just sucks at metering.
  6. Is your metering set to spot?
  7. there is probably some light relecting on the light meter, in some cases it probably makes the camera think there is lots of light in the room, so it doesnt use the flash, in other cases it probabaly knows its dark and uses the flash.
