Answers :

Your settings are wrong on the brightness and contrast

some of the power shots set up by using KELVINS as the method of balancing the warmth or coolness of a picture. Others have a setting for OUTSIDE Inside Halogen and fluro If its set on halogen and you are taking pics outside it will have a red tinge.

I just recently bought a Polaroid t1234 from walmart and ive only had it for 2 weeks. When i turn the camera on the screen turns pink or has pink lines running across the screen.

Focus problems Hi, my camera is not focusing clearly. We just used it recently and can look at clear pictures on the display screen but now when we go to actually take a picture it's blury (on the display screen and if a picture is taken). I also notice that all these different setting menu's come up on the display screen when we are in take picture mode. I took it in today and they said the lens could have been bumped or that their is something wrong with the focusing inside. So they would hav

My camera (Sony DSC-T100) is about 3 years old. It has worked perfectly in that time but recently, outdoor photos show a lot pink where it does not belong (sky, side walks, etc.). Indoor pictures still look great, with or without flash. Sounded similar to some of the bad CCD discussions I have seen, but my camera seems to have been built after that problem was supposedly fixed by Sony. I tried calling the number (866-703-7669) I have seen in several postings, but it does not seems to work.

We have Nikon Cool Pix 8800 - we have struggled with the camera from day 1 having a long delay between pushing shutter buttom and photo being taken. It seems recently that the problem has gotten so bad that anything other than a still picture is a frustrating moment. We believe we are shooting on automatic. If there isn't a setting that is wrong we are clearly on our way to selling the camera but we don't even feel good about that the way it currently works. Thanks Lynn

Blurry pictures Using a point and shoot digital camera, it was set on night mode by mistake. Pictures turned out blurry. The snapshots were taken inside at night using flash in the camera. Probably because in night mode, camera was setting depth of field wrong. So using flash and set in night mode was the problem. But can anything be done to correct the blurry pictures taken in this situation?? Any software known to correct this problem? Thank's, Angela Sapp

I have a Canon 400d and have recently photographed a wedding. Most of my normal work is for a picture agency which I have been supplying with work for the last four years. I recently had some photos rejected due to excessive noise. The photos were taken on a setting of 200asa which in the past have been ok. The wedding I recently shot, the photos were again very noisy and due to the weather all the shots were taken inside at a hotel. I would say the majority of the shots were at least o
