HI Dan...
A lot of digital cameras have passed through my hands... I don't want to repeat what others has already said, but e70 is and older model, which doesn't have the technology build in to make pro photos.. as you can notice your self the photos aren't exactly perfect, even if taken in perfect condition, there always something missing... there is one thing that can be done to improve the shots, but I'm not sure if it will give satisfactory result, try manual white balance, before taking the photo...

I recommend to resell your A70 buy some other model... the best model for a reasonable price is Canon e350 (around 500euro last time I've checked), it has the same equipment that is build in d10, the only difference is in the body (it's not so durable like d10), so must be careful not to make any damage, it's very fragile...

Or you can allways try all the manual settings... but actually they arent manual at all, just software that simulate manual setings... HOpe you can get better result with manualy adjusting the white balance..

Regards

Ilievski, Thank you for the comment!

... but e70 is and older model,
(I agree that...)
(I took somethimes many quality photos, depends of climatic conditions)
I recommend to resell your A70...
(the price is too small for selling my A70, so I'll keep it for my unforgettable moments)
the best model for a reasonable price is Canon e350
(e350 or eos350? e350 is a camcorder as I know!)
----------------------------------------------------------------------
I'll posting a photo, 800x600 with my camera and say something about... In 2048x1536 the quality is almost perfect. The test, I think, must to be in a large resolution printing. I know the size of images with other cameras is more big and maby in a raw format. As I saw on the net and you said, must to buy a digital camera which offers results of personal pretentions.
Best wishes, Dan

Re: Canon settings

It seems this question of manual is getting passed on.

All camera have simalarities!

Theres a hole in the front (lens) which can be made larger or smaller ( apature ) this will effect your depth of field.There is a curtain, which can be controled to let in more or less light (shutter speed).this can effect how fast you stop motion.
Theres an image plane (the chip or 'film' in the long, long ago) this is what is being exposed to the light when the shutter opens it can be set to various sensitivities (ISO).

it's a hole in a box (see pin hole photography)

Now granted this is a very simple overview of working a camera manually. But what is maybe one of the greatest things about Digital Cameras is that when you paid for the thing you also paid for a lifetime of film and processing. Just go out and shoot with these things in mind and keep notes on the settings you were using. If you can take good notes and stay with a single objective each outting, say depth of field for instance, you will, before long unlock the mystery's to the box with a hole in it.

And then the quality of your life and maybe even the quality of your friends will improve ten-fold! ...well maybe you will just make better pictures?

Re: Canon settings

Thanks chio for your ample comment!
I know that all camera have similarities but their technologies are different, other lens fabricants, electronique properties... I think the secret is between ISO, shutter speed, aperture, quality lens... as you know. Only old photographs have this secret in mind and one like me, must learn many years to develop the art of photography. And with a great camera, of course! I wish to get a good site that make me happy demonstrating all the relations between the functions of camera with concret examples, not a loose explanation! I know that I'm a dreamer
Best wishes,
Dan
