My indoor portrait pictures with my Nikon coolpix L110 are yellow in tone. Why? How can I avoid this problem? The camera does not request flash.

Artificial light is a different colour than daylight. Our eyes compensate, so we don't notice it much. Digital cameras can compensate too, but whether they do or not depends on the settings. The setting you want to investigate is colour balance. If t ... Digital Cameras

Every picture I take indoors has a yellow tint. What can I do to stop this?

Sounds like a white balance problem caused by the background lighting in the room (flourescent or incandescent lights, the camera gets confused in compensating for them). Look in your camera's menus for "white balance" selection. Try setting the wh ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera

Mode switch The mode switch will not switch to viewfinder mode which I prefer. Playback mode is OK. Also, indoor pictures have a yellow cast in the background. Is this a matter of changing the ISO setting and will that be a permanent change?

Hello. I have problems taking pictures with my Cobra DCA1030 indoors. The flash either seems to be entirely too bright or if I don't use the flash the picture is too dark.

Indoor Photography I have a Sony DSC-P1 3.2 Mega Pixels camera. I've owned it for 3 years now and have been happy with it. However, one thing that I've noticed is that sometimes when I take pictures indoors with limited light, the quality of the picture isn't very good (it's sort of fuzzy). When the lighting is better (such as outdoors), the quality is outstanding (crisp and clear) and produces beautiful pictures. This issue regarding taking pics indoors or in lower light - is this a camera qual

What's probably happening is this: Since the light is low, the shutter must remain open for a relatively long time. If you're hand-holding the camera, you'll get blurry shots. Using a tripod will eliminate this. It doesn't typically happen outdoors b ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P1 Digital Camera

I hit something on my camera that each time I take a picture, the preview is a tiny picture in the upper left screen and there are yellow outlines around areas of the picture and in the lower right corner, it shows a zoomed preview of the area captured in yellow.

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.

Have you changed the white balance setting? ... Digital Cameras

Indoor photos are yellow.

Your camera is choosing (or you chose) the wrong white balance setting. Try Auto White Balance, and if that doesn't work, try tungsten white balance. You could switch to daylight color bulbs in your lamps. ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 Digital Camera

Dust Orbs I am having serious problems with "Dust Orbs" appearing in pictures. Mostly indoor pictures. These things are ruining my pictures. Are they caused by the Infrared Beam that the camera uses to focus? Or is something else wrong with my camera? Do ALL digital cameras have this problem with dust? Do DSLR have same problem? How come these dust orbs only appear with Digital Cameras, and not film? I need a digital camera that works indoors. Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance....

Many digital cameras have this problem, though it has nothing to do with the camera being digital. It is small specks of dust in the air being illuminated. You will never see this problem without a flash.\015\012\015\012The reason you see it on digit ... Kodak EasyShare DX7440 Digital Camera

My Fuji s2000 always shoots picture that are blured. I have tried many settings and different exposures however I keep getting the same result. What can I do ? The worst mode on this camera is the auto mode, I can never get a clear indoor picture. This camera takes beautiful pictures of flowers/nature and all outdoor photo's turn out beautiful it is the indoor photo's I have even tried the sports mode for when people move but I still get a very blured image

Found the same thing and I think the answer is the opposite of previous suggestions. The s2000 is truly awful at anything above about 400ASA The degree of pixel binning it uses just makes the pictures look terrible. Force the camera to use 400 or s ... Fuji FinePix S2000hd Digital Camera

I have been having problems getting sharp pictures. Especially indoors. I have the cool pix 6000 and reset all my settings to the factory settings. My pictures indoors seem almost "filtered"...not sharp at all. I took some pics outside and they are great. Shouldn't the auto setting adjust to take great pics inside and out??

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.

This is to inform that I am having Casio Digital Camera Exilim EX-Z500 for last few years. The same was giving very good pictures, but last week, it suddenly started malfunctioning. Whenever, we took indoor pictures, they were coming out well as per attached pictures (CIM2831 & CIM2826) but when the camera was taken outside in the day light, though the picture was very clear on the LCD screen but after clicking, the picture is overshadowed with white light (as per other attached pictures).

Some things to try:\0121. Go into the menu and find "reset" to return to factory default settings.\0122. Check the ISO setting....you may have it set too high for outdoor pictures.\0123. Check the "exposure compensation"...it should be at "0". ... Casio Exilim EX-S500 Digital Camera
