ISO 80, Daylight, Vivid

So, there’s a bit of a thing with my camera (a Canon PowerShot SD1200 IS) where the Auto settings don’t quite generate the picture quality you might hope for – lots of noise. So I decided to play with camera settings a bit. Setting ISO to 80 gets rid of most of the noise outdoors, and so that problem solved I decided to play with some more things – what does setting the white balance to Daylight do? How about color balance to Vivid?

So I spent most of the day wandering around taking random test shots. Here are some of them. ISO 80 is staying, but Daylight and Vivid get you intro trouble with clouds.

Why do daylight and vivid get you into trouble with clouds? Those pics of the clouds looked awesome to me. Even the one with all the glare since that’s what those kind of clouds look like here :P

Yay, a comment!

You can’t really see because I didn’t post any of the really busted ones, but there are a couple I took with lots of clouds where the clouds blew out the white balance really hard and messed up the whole shot. Looked like it was in greyscale almost.
