Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

When i take a picture with the flash, it has a yellow tint to it. Why?


Answers :

Most likely your white balance setting needs to be adjusted. You didn't specify the model of your camera, so I can't tell you exactly how to change it (your manual should say).
Your camera should have several settings:
"A" or "Auto"
"Daylight/Sun"
"Tungsten" or "Indoors" or "Incandescent"
"Fluorescent"

and possibly also:
"Flash"
"Cloudy" or "Shade"

When taking flash pictures, the "Flash" setting should be best. If you don't have a flash setting, then "Daylight" or "Sun" will be the best.

Human eyes adjust quickly and easily to different colors of light, but cameras see light as it is, so indoor light will look yellow, outside bluish, fluorescent greenish, etc. So digital cameras shift the colors in the image to try to make white objects appear white like they would to your eye. But sometimes they mess up and don't get it quite right. That is where the manual white balance settings come in. If you play with these settings, then you will find you can improve the color quality of many of your pictures.

Within the last few days, suddenly when I take a picture a picture there is a little red eye that is flashing on the left hand of the screen and the little green light at the top is flashing also and there is hesitation of about 15 seconds before a picture is taken and then the picture will have a redish tint to it when it processes. This just started and I have changed batteries out and powered the camera on and off several times and I have checked all of the settings, and still cannot figure


It sounds to me that the timer is on. That would certainly explain the blinking lights and the 15 second delay. There should be a button with what looks like a small clock on it to turn this feature on and off. You should also be able to find it i ... Digital Cameras

I have a Nikon Coolpix L110 and the pictures have a yellow tint when taken inside. I've noticed the yellow tint varies when I point the camera to different areas in the room. I've never had an issue like this with other cameras so I'm not sure what is causing this. I read the manual and there was really nothing to address this issue. Okay this may be stupid question but; Do you think raising the flash will get rid of the yellow? Thanks Marie Steel

White balance I have an ongoing problem with all my images having a stronge red / yellow color cast to them. It does not matter if I'm in the daylight or shooting under flouresent lights. When I use my flash the area directly in front of the flash is usually ok, but where the flash falls off, the immediate area has that color cast to it. Example: If I take a picture of the front fender, of a vehicle from six feet away, the fender is usually ok but the chrome wheel, tire and pavement have the red

My camera was dropped and since then it won't take pictures using the flash. The screen keeps saying "F 2.8 1/45" while the flash is charging, but never takes a picture. The camera takes pictures fine without the flash. What does this mean?

My pictures have a yellow cast to them and they are not very sharp. When I take pictures outside, my photos are invariably washed out. I find myself manually adjusting light balance before I print (either darkening if I take picture outside or lightening if I take the picture inside). I almost always use Auto mode. I have found nothing that corrects the nasty yellow cast.

Flash problem So, I set the camera to 'Flash On'. I take a picture and the flash goes off for about a quick second. I look at the picture and it's nothing but a black background, sometimes white where I can only slightly see the object I took the picture of. What's wrong with my camera? This only happens sometimes, by the way. Sometimes I take a picture and everything's normal.

Canon sd900 I seldom use my canon sd900 and I usually take pictures without using the flash. But I recently noticed that my hands should be very very steady, just a slight movement will cause the picture to be blurry or unclear. I usually don?t use the flash because it gives a darker background with your face too white from the flash. And my problem arises when I would request other people to take my picture because 90% don?t have a steady hand thus giving me a blurry picture.
