with the manual mode on my little Canon Powershot A70 (still waiting for the screen of death to happen). Most of my snakes are brumating in my basement so last night I went downstairs and took a few shots. It was quite dark. A small fluorescent indirectly lit the area. I took the first shot with the following settings:

Flash used: No
Focal length: 9.4mm (35mm equivalent: 64mm)
CCD width: 5.28mm
Exposure time: 0.500 s (1/2)
Aperture: f/3.5
Whitebalance: Manual
Metering Mode: matrix
Exposure Mode: Auto bracketing



Then I tried a shot with the flash:

Flash used: Yes (auto, red eye reduction mode)
Focal length: 9.4mm (35mm equivalent: 64mm)
CCD width: 5.28mm
Exposure time: 0.017 s (1/60)
Aperture: f/3.5
Whitebalance: Auto
Metering Mode: matrix



The two different light sources make such a big difference in the look of the colors. It was quite a revelation.

So I went back and looked at a photo I once took of a mandarin under an "active UV" bulb I used for my uros...

Flash used: No (auto)
Focal length: 5.4mm (35mm equivalent: 37mm)
CCD width: 5.28mm
Exposure time: 0.017 s (1/60)
Aperture: f/2.8
Whitebalance: Auto
Metering Mode: matrix



Anyway, I'm sure it's old hat to you old hands but I thought it might be interesting to some newbies like me.

Regards
John
