Blue photos Can anyone tell me some reasons why some outdoor shots I took of snow/trees, etc. might look blueish? I took some pictures at sundown that came out fine, and ones I took about 10 minutes later look blue. I don't recall changing any settings. I also took similar shots at the same time with another digital camera and those looked fine. Is this something that's common in low light with a lot of white background? (Or is this a "user problem?")


Snow pictures tend to be blue due to the blue spectrum being scattered and reflected from the snow (similar to why the sky is blue). Plus just after sunset, you're going to get a cooler color temperature (blue cast).\015\012\015\012However, instead o ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ10 Digital Camera

I take pictures of plates, cups, bowls, crystal, etc., for ebay. I am getting very yellow - tannish colors. No true colors. It is very irritating. I have a white background, and the background is not even white. It is a brownish yellow. I have no clue what to set my camera on. I just have it set on "intelligent". Outdoor pictures are great though.

We have just got a Wii and the kids have changed something so when we go back to the DVD it plays with the people looking green. I think they have changed the cords connecting into the TV. They say they never actually touched the DVD player. There are five cords - red, yellow, white then a green and blue. When you move the blue one it changes it all to black and white. Most are colour coded to the same colour as the plugs on the tv.

Flash When I take pictures, all of the faces are completely whited out. It's like the flash is too bright but when I adjust the flash, then it's too dark. I'm sort of confused as to what to do. I would love to be able to use the flash without whiting out all the faces and bleaching out the background. I've tried adjusting the brightness and the flash but that doesn't work. Is there anything else I'm doing wrong?


I rally dont know, i personally always keep my flash on auto and keep the brightness auto or 50%. if this is the case, then i strongly recommend contacting Sony and asking them for a solution, or taking it down to the store you purchased it from and ... Sony Cybershot S650 Digital Camera

Dead Pixels??? I am an amateur photographer and I do not know too much yet so bare with me. I have been taking pictures of the moon lately to get the feel for my new camera (Canon EOS 20D) and I have noticed something kinda strange.

Dropped Camera. Basically, the thing stopped working. DMC-FZ1 It was dropped from a tripod it landed Lens DOWN. So it kind of smashed into it maybe? But nothing on the outside seems to be actually broken. The lens is crooked, but thats all that seems to be wrong. Yet it won't turn on at all. Maybe if someone could suggest something? Perhaps maybe something needs to be fidgeted around inside? Or is it a better idea if I pay a professional? But whatever the case. Anyone who has any suggestions it

Blankness When I switch it on, my screen goes grey-white for a few seconds. Then, It shows my last picture taken but it's very fuzzy and faded. Then the picture changes into complete greyness. THEN, it'll jump from the grey-whitness, to that faded picture. Damn. Would there be any why I could just replace a part in it? Like the hard drive or something? Definitely sounds like something is really fucked in my cam. Sniff. I loved it and hate having to buy another new one as I'm accustomed to using
