I'm having trouble taking good pictures of my Aquarium with my Kodak DX4330. Does anyone have any experience with this camera? Mostly, my trouble is with lighting and focus. I can't focus on small objects (saving up for a macro lens). But even worse is lighting. Even with exposure compensation reduced, my pictures tend to get washed out in bright areas.
This problem was especially aggravated when I switched my two strip lights. Previously, I had my CSL 2x65w PS strip in the rear and the two ODNO GE P&A bulbs in the front. When I switched them, everything is way too bright on my pictures. Maybe I should leave the flash on and just cover it up to fool the camera into a short shutter speed?

Does anyone know of any good sites with expert advise? Thanks!
