hello i'm a "newbie" looking for help. i have a nikon cp8800 & i'm almost ready to leave "auto" mode. theres a new atomic testing museum opening here in vegas soon. it's $10.00 to get in. i'm going to shoot as much as possible.i need some tips on this. most all exhibits are in glass with strong floodlites. theres a museum setting on my camera but i'm wondering about white bal. settings also circ.poliz. filter? i viewed online pics. and it looks fairly bright inside with high ceilings.[ www.ntshf.org.] i could sure use some advice on general camera settings. i'm most worried about reflected light. guess i'll use "p" mode? thanks anyone

Using a circular polarizer will cut out reflections, but also reduce the light reaching the film/sensor by 2 stops, resulting in slower shutter speeds.

The Museum setting may just disable all sounds for your camera, rather than changing the image quality settings - take a look at your manual to double-check.

For white balance, try taking a shot for each wb mode when you arrive to see which is most accurate for the lighting.
