How is it that almost everyone gets such clear, bright, beautiful pictures of their betta?
I should probably know, since I'm a photographer, but my pair don't ever stop moving and he water throws my camera off. |D

Have you tried the macro/flower setting? My digital camera doesnt have a macro option but it does have a "flower" option which is essentially the same thing. I have about a 60-70% chance of success. Otherwise it doesn't focus properly and comes out blurry.

Also make sure that the lens of the camera is CLEAN and free of dust, fingerprints, etc. I found that it is very important when it comes to taking clear detailed pictures. I personally use a microfiber cloth to do this.

Try this... take the pic at night, turn off all the lights except the tank light. put your camera lens against the glass or just the space of your baby finger and wait for him to come into view. Usually mine come right to see what I'm doing. I get great pics that way and I use a point and shoot, with auto focus. zoom a bit too to get the right look and set your focus. good luck.
No flash too.

I do use macro, and I added on the 8-shots-per-second option with it. Usually it just focuses on the glass or a random speck in the water, and not the betta fish. |D

Ditto... I have a ton, but only very few good ones. xD

I also use a microfiber cloth.... I can't stand dirty lenses. D: adsfjsalgh
But I also haven't really used my camera much/haven't looked at the lens so it may be a bit smudged. (I did accidently get a tree frog to land on it a little while back.. I probably didn't clean it so well. |D )

Thanks, I'll try that. It'd be nice to get some different pictures, especially now that I have a new tank, too.
My female Leliia didn't have a light in her temporary tank way back when... well, I used a flashlight, but I don't think that counts. xP
(and I think flash would kill the picture... reflect off the glass, y'know?)


SO MANY QUOTES
I'm sorry if I just spammed this page. xD;
