A stormy day with my new camera...

Recommended Posts

After returning my Vivitar camera, I decided to fork a little extra and get a Nikon Coolpix S3100. I saw someone's pics on the forums with that camera and I read reviews, liked the price, and bought the camera. It's a great camera. I need to adjust to the menus and scene selectors, but all in all it's wonderful. Here are some pics from the camera.

I dont have that camera, but based on what ive read i think it might have a Program mode (P)..use that instead of the scene selectors. you can manually set the ISO in those modes to get better pics in certain situations (mainly night/underground)

I just found it today, after reading the manual. What settings are best for underground shots and outside shots for trains? I have the ability to set an ISO of 80, 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600, or 3200.

The lower the iso the better. This is why slrs are better, a slr like is limited. Slrs you can get lenses for night shots with an aperture of f/1.8 or lower that lets a lot of light in without raising the iso too much. In your case an iso between 80&200 will do, any higher you will get grainy pics. If you can play with the aperture on that cam try that also.
