I recently purchased a canon digital camera and while it takes some really good pictures, I have no idea how to adjust it to handle wildlife shots at night. The only pictures that turn out are the ones that the animal has to stay perfectly still for nearly 10 seconds or the other one seems to turn everything pretty orange. My ideal show would be black and white (another issue that I cant get the damn camera to facilitate). I do have the manual but due to a very serious head injury that happened on the other side of the world, my brain just does not seem to process their wording very well. I wont lie and say the manuals were overyly helpful before getting hurt but now they are like reading a foriegn language blindfolded while hammered.
If anyone knows of any simple ways to make the camera take better pictures of wildlife (or really anything) please let me know how to adjust it manually. Also, any suggestions on how to make it take black and white pictures would also be very helpful. Sadly I bought the one that the salesman swore was dummy proof, but apparently whomever coined that phrase had been hit in the head by a piece of metal traveling at an exessive speed.
I'd really appreciate any help folks.
