08-24-2007, 11:30 AM
I have a S5 IS, i do a alot of indoor flash photography, but the problem is whenever i capture pics with flash, the faces of people are well exposed but the background turns out to be very dark, and also i want little warm flash pics like Sony digiams produce and a bit overexposed pics. And also something i find that built-in flash is underpowered. In most of the Sony cameras buit-in flash pics ..always the background lighting is visible ...but with canon ..it is different as i mentione. so how can i make my pics like sony? is there any setting in camera which can overcome this.

Can i make warm and overexposed pics with canon S5 IS and using built-in flash.
+ the background of the pics don't appear completely dark with flash pics.

Plz give me some good tips

To capture some of the ambient background light when using the flash you have to use a technique called "dragging the shutter".

The camera chooses 1/60 when you use the flash. Set it to shutter priority mode and use a shutter setting of 1/50 1/40 or slower.
