Thanks Wavemachine and Oldboy for replying, I tried shooting at 1/15 in Tv at,100, and 400 ISO and the exposures were OK but in these lighting conditions only 100 ISO gave a reasonably low noise image.
The guy at Canon got me to do a full reset but without improvement.
In P you can change stuff like flash comp., 1st,2nd curtain etc but in Full auto there’s only red eye.
As I’m writing this I thought I’d also try auto Portrait mode with the flash raised and in the same lighting conditions, this caused the camera to set itself to 1/60sec at 100 auto ISO resulting in a good exposure (:
The fault would seem to be that in auto mode this camera doesn’t know the flash has been lifted and sets itself up for a non flash image, complete with shake warning, even though flash mode is functioning and confirmed on the lcd screen. I tried not lifting the flash when in auto and the camera set itself to1/15 sec and 400 auto ISO.
BUT do all the SX30 ISs have this fault?
