My curiosity is acting up tonight, so..................

Condition - available room light (1 had 2x60 watt bulbs in overhead) using no flash.

What settings (iso, av, tv) does it take to get an "properly" exposed image?

btw, I used the Canon thrifty-fifty.

Thanks.

Excuse my asking the question in the wrong manner. It should have read "What settings (iso, av, tv) does it take you to get an 'properly' exposed image?"

And yes, I did take several shots with my digital camer.:D

I sure love my Digital Camer. Its a wonderufl camer. I think I'd recommend my camer to anyone else interested in buying a camer. Ok well maybe I had too much fun with that one.

I don't know D, how much exterior light are you getting, any windows, no windows, doors, nerfin, is this at night? Whats the deal. . . ?

Oh yea, can I use both eyes or just one?

ROTFLMAO.

Let's see, nighttime, walls are painted an eggshell white, ceiling is white, 2 doors (although one is a closet), 1 window with curtains closed, beige carpet, slight ambient light from 2 flat panel displays.

Oh, never mind. I was trying to get some shots of some old baseball cards and was a little surprised at the settings required for it to show up. I should probably sleep more and not ask questions as such. ;)

BTW - if you're close to my age then you probably have to use both eyes. :D

LMAO. Sleep is overated and if you get plenty, it usually wears off in less than 24 hours anyway.
