I like to use Manual Mode on my camera a lot, and when i do im usually inside or take pictures at night or in a dark room no problem, i was takin some pictures today using manual mode in the daytime i would love to take a clear picture i take the flash off and i get this bluish tent in the manuel mode and when i use flash (i was just experimenting, cause clearly i dont need flash int he day time, but just to give an example) the picture is to dark. now i have an example, in case this sint to clear or anyone needs a visual. I was taking a picture of a white cat came out like this
so i was wondering if there is something i could do about that or if i just shouldnt use Manual mode in the daytime k thanks

What was your exposure setting? I'm no expert myself, but when I use the Manual Mode it takes me a few tries before I get it just right. I just fiddle with the Aperture Value and Shutter speed.

my aperture is 5.4 (zoomed by the way) and my shutter speed is 250 for this shot but i fiddle with the aperture and shutter speeds all the time, and it seems like when there is a lot of light in the picture it comes to a blueish tint

Hey there again! I went over to your stream to check out your cat picture's camera settings. I noticed you had your Light Source set to Incandescent. You could try changing it to Daylight when you're outside. Just go change your White Balance setting. That might help.

I love this camera, but it's frustrating at times too.
