Sorry Mike, didnt know where else to post this to get many people to see it

I have an Olympus C-3020Z camera that is 3.2 Mpixel. If I dont use flash the pics are always blurry, I dont want to use the flash so what do I need to do to fix the problem? I dont know how to setup a camera for fish tank pictures.

I think using flashlight is nearly unavoidable, unless your tank is very brightly lit (either by direct sunlight, spotlights directed at the tank, tube lights or whatnot), or you have a very light-sensitive CCD on your camera. Usually, a tank (and in particular a dimmed piranha tank) a too dark to get nice pictures...

I noticed that when I take regular pictures of my fish, the pictures are usually overexposed. To avoid this, use the "macro" (instead of zooming: my 1.3Mpixel camera has it, so yours defiinitely has it!) setting on your camera for close range pictures: the flash light intensity will be not as much as when shooting pics without macro...
Also, without using the macro setting, close-range pics are usually very fuzzy and blurry.

I hope this is of any help :smile:
