When trying to take a picture the color is off. It shows a purple tent on the screen, but there are old photos on there that are shown in normal color. It suddenly switched to giving everything the purple tent and has grainy lines going across the screen. I have tried to reset the settings to see if that would help but it hasn't. I haven't tried to upload any of the photos with the purple tent to see if they come up normal colors on my computer. Thank you!

I'm not getting crisp, in-focus photos from my EV500 (they appear somewhat fuzzy). In a studio environment with 5500K softbox lighting, using a tripod and AF on a portrait subject, with ISO 125 in Manual and Portrait exposure. I also shot the same subject with a Cannon G10 and same settings. My Cannon photos were tack sharp, but my Olympus photos were not. Also, the Cannon colors were more realistic than the Olympus.

Nikon CoolPix S500 shows colored lines on lcd and in photos where the lights are bright. I have restored settings tried using it with no flash, soft flash, and auto flash and the problem continues. Noticed the lines on the lcd over a year ago and it has progressed to brightly lit photos also now. In some photos lighter colors also show up with the lines. ie.

Color Problems I have currently been using a Kodak 14n at my current job and have noticed something rather strange. With every picture I take, the photo has an deep magenta cast. In photoshop 7 I adjust the color either by using autocolor or by manual color adjustment. After getting the color a close as I can, I notice that there are faint sections of color vertically across the picture. One third is slightly green, the middle third is yellow, and the right third is magenta. So basically I have

When I view my photos I have already taken they look good until I try to zoom in, then the photos go fuzzy in multiple color stripes taking over the screen. Will my photos be fine when I load them to my computer? Is this my camera or my memory card. I put someone else's memory car in my camera and could zoom in and it was fine. I put mine back in my camera, took two pictures, and could zoom in on those photos and it was fine, but not on the previous pictures I have taken. I did plug my camera

My Canon A95 has horizontal grid lines on the lcd screen after a photo is taken. The view on the screen is normal when you are framing the photo but after you take the shot the playback of that scene has these grayish horizontal lines and the image color is washed out. Changing the batteries and the cf card makes no difference and loading the photos on Adobe Photoshop shows the same problem on the computer screen. This just started yesterday after we downloaded a bunch of photos from the camera

Color problem The same issue as the one who asked about the color problem. We bought this Olympus FE-280 Digital Camera March 2008 i think.

I have a Canon PowerShot A95 that has provided very good service for four years. But recently, the color and images are very distorted in some photos - faded purple in color with the image blurred or melted, sometimes icicle-like or stalactite-like in appearance. This occurs in both outdoor and indoor shots. These distortions do not occur in every shot, but have increased in frequency. This is the only problem I have ever had with this camera.

My NIkon D70s has colored streaks and grainy pixels throughout all of my photos. This happened a few times intermittently and cleared by turning the camera on and off. It is now worse and doing it on every photo. Turning the camera off no longer clears the problem. I have tried different lenses and the problem is consistent with all of them so it is specific to the camera itself. I have reset the menu but the problem still persists.
