    Coolpix B500 Indoor Pictures not Sharp

    Coolpix B500 Indoor Pictures not Sharp
    Hello,

    I just got me this camera to document my house renovation, but I am not able to get decent images out of this camera when used indoors. Outdoors with good daylight seems good, but indoor does not. I tried all settings and even put all of my lights on, but nothing good came out.

    I took a quick picture of myself with dark and light contrast.

    Anyone with any suggestion?

    Thanks

    It looks like this photo look good. You have detail in the darks and lights. What do you see wrong with it. Remember that the point and shoot cameras will need more light to get good photos.

    That's what I thought too, so I tuned on my photo lights, which are 18000 lumen total and the flash too. This photo is the result of it. It is grainy and blurry.

    Primarily it's an exposure issue. I see you have the Exposure Compensation set at 1.0EV but I can't tell if it's +1.0EV or -1.0EV. If it's the latter, that's a big part of the problem. Here's the histogram from your original shot:

    See how everything is bunched up against the left side and the right side is nearly devoid of data? This is not what the histogram for this shot should be looking like. Correcting the exposure (and doing some color balancing) gives the following result:

    And a more evenly distributed histogram:

    Maybe you need new glasses!!! I see nothing wrong with this sharp clear photo. My camera should be just as "bad" (!!)
