Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Bright light How do you reduce glare when taking photo's? Whenever I take photo's at beaches on a bright day they are very washed out.


Answers :

Hold the camera steady on the subject for a second or two before snapping the photo with less than half of the picture taken above the horizon (aim low, not high). This should render better pictures.

My panasonic has amazing imaging stabilising properties, and crystal clear images. But the flash is too bright, and washes everything out far too much, making faces and scenery white all the time. The colours arent natural more than often. They're just wishy washy. So I bought a sony, and the colours are much more natural, and flash much more reasonable, but the image quality is really not great at all, especially in low light conditions, and the image stabilising is almost useless!!!!

I took about 30 photos over five days. Everything worked until the last day, when I could only see the last 3 photos I took the last day. All the others have disappeared. I checked my card on my computer when I got home, but same results. I did do some re-organizing of features during that time, but I never deleted anything. I just did some test shots and my camera is working fine, displaying my last shots, but I am worried that I may lose my photos again somehow.

I've got a Fujifilm F30. Since yesterday, its not working properly. When I take photos, it 'absorbs' too much light and indoor photos becomes really bright and outdoor photos becomes nearly white from brightness. And when I transfer the pictures to computer, it has minor lines accross the picture. The video mode seems to be unaffected. What is the problem and is it worth fixing ? Would like to fix it if I can as F30 is still considered one of the best compact camera Fuji has ever made ! Thanks.
