Hold camera on an angle to the tank to prevent the camera flash showing up as a white blur on the picture.Who's got tips on getting decent photos by the casual ham handed photographers among us ? I never get good pictures. Glare on the glass , fish moving too fast are either blurry or gone too quick. Do you need a real camera ?
Thanks @Colin_TI finally set up my SLR Canon EOS digital Rebel XT. It’s likely their 1st model, circa 2005. I have a 18-55 mm lens & a 70-21O mm. I purchased a 50 mm f 1.8 lens after seeing fantastic online fish photos taken with it. Mine were awful, worse than the iPad I use. The lens did not mount...www.fishforums.net
There are some great photos in here, of fish in their tanks...and some not so good. To those of you who consistently take crystal clear shots of your tank contents, how do you do it?

Hi all, There have been many great threads here with some excellent tips, having scanned most of them, I have learned lots of great things. Hopefully those with 'the knowledge' will post back with their tips to share. I am no 'pro' but have taken enough photos of my fish to fill a small truck...www.fishforums.net
I just can't seem to take a decent picture of fish. The lighting is wrong or the fish keep darting around and the glare on the glass ruins it. I tried different cameras and everything I can think of. I just ain't no Jock Cousteau.www.fishforums.net
Hold camera on an angle to the tank to prevent the camera flash showing up as a white blur on the picture.
Set shutter speed to 1/100 or faster (1/250) so fish aren't blury
Have lots of light on the tank, in the room and use camera flash to help prevent blur.
A digital SLR camera can help because you can set the camera to shutter priority and set the shutter speed to 1/250. The camera then automatically sets the aperture. Some point and shoot cameras (not SLR's) also have that feature. However, you can get good results with a cheap point n shoot digital camera.
