Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Just bought a VistaQuest DV500 camcorder.display is very dark unless used in natural sunlight.normal room lighting is too dark


Answers :

Hi,
It seems aperture mechanism in lens assembly got stuck and causing darker image in low light, aperture is device that controls light amount in lens mechanism for good picture result, it opens wide in low light and gets close to reduce light amount in high bright/ sunlight.
Lens assembly needs to be take apart to fix aperture problem and it is job of experienced camera technician, so take camera to local camera repair shop for fix.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

Dark LCD I have an A70, about a year old. The problem is the LCD screen is very dark. It is almost completely black unless I point the camera dirrectly at light. If I take a picture with the viewfinder the picture is exactly what the LCD screen looks like. This happened as we were using the camera. I also cannot view any of the pictures in the camera. I no the display is not completly out because it works to access the menu screen. It wasn't droped or anything. I can't find any setting to change

Hi im using Canon ixus 95 IS. How do i use it to take photos in the dark room or at night? Can i use it to take clear photos in the dark room?


Simple check - point any old Infra-red remote control at the camera. If you see a blue flash from the transmitting end of the remote wand, chances are you may be able to equip and use an infra-red illumination lamp. If there is a tripod mounting hole ...

White Balance images are redish. I'm using studio strobs. One 32inch soft box and one 4 inch umbrella. Modle light only in soft box. ISO100 Shutter 125 f:8 exposure determine with light meter. Also using expo disc pointing back at camera location between both light sourced to determine custom white balance. My main subjects are black people. The room is also lit with tunsent light 10 feet high. Thanks. Lee


With your D200, you can use the kelvin temperature mode instead the other. As I work in TV where we do the white balance very often, I can guess what's the Kelvin temperature when I shoot. I only use Kelvin now on the D200 and it's more reliable! ... Nikon D200 Digital Camera with 18-200mm Lens

I just purchased a Power Shot sx200is. I will be taking pictures this evening where most of the subjects are African American. They will be getting awards and the person giving the awards is Irish American and very light skinned. This will take place in a room that is well lit with florescent lighting. In the past I have had success shooting this combination with a Nikon camera using the night snapshot mode. But this is the first time I will be using the Canon. Any tips you can give me.

I take photos with the color pix s210 outside with natural light and the photos come out good, but when I am inside using artificial light the photos come out fuzzy. Is there a setting I can use to correct this issue?

Close-up picture Hi! I purchased my camera to take up close-up pictures of handmade greeting cards. The cards are 4" x 5 1/2" with lots of little details. I'd like to show as much detail as possble. I'm not sure what the best setting are? I've tried using the flash, but the whole picture just glares out, the light bounces off of the card and makes a big glare in the center. Without the flash, the picture is too dark. Can you help me figure out the best setting to use? Or, what kind of lighting

Hi, my Mustek dig. camera is not displaying anything. Having bought this about a year ago and not really using it, I don't remember if it came with a charger or just the USB cable. Anyway, I plugged in the USB cable and turned on the cam, but nothing popped out on my PC. The power button is still on (blue light) and does not turn off. But I still can not see anything - the cam is dark. Please let me know how I can start using it again. Thank you

I came back to it in the morning and popped it into my camera and it wouldn't turn on. I thought to myself, 'Well thats odd.' and stuck it back in the charger. I notice that the red light is blinking and yet when I chec

Canon SD600 I used my camera to take pictures of fireworks and I noticed that afterwards, all the photos I was taking outside in daylight were turning white. If I take pictures in the dark, they turn out perfect, and low light pictures are fairly normal except anywhere where there is a light source (lamp, window, etc) the color is streaky and orange. This particular camera has no way to adjust the aperture settings and I am considering taking it to a shop to have it looked at. Is there anything


It sounds like you may be in a low light mode. Put the camera in record mode, and then press the set button (in the middle of the up down left right keys). You probably want the camera to be in automatic mode (or A). If this doesn't solve the prob ... Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital Camera

Camera flash i generally use my camera on auto mode so i don't have to play around with buttons! however after loaning my camera to my sister for a week my flash is no longer as great as it was!! I used to take pics and the flash would light 2-3 times giving a great, bright picture. It now flashes once before the pic is snapped giving a dark picture. If i push the flash button on the left side of the scrolling circle it goes from red eye flash (which flashes once) to no flash! I'm almost certain
