Having problems with your Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera ?

Outside pictures are too light

\015 Recently pictures taken outside with my cannon digital are too light, pictures taken inside are fine.\015\012\015\012I too am having similar problems.I tried to shoot some still life and landscapes this morning and got the Err 99 result nearly every time. I succesfully shot 10 pics out of nearly 50 trys! It appears to shut down/lock up when trying to shoot brightly lit images like buildings or white subjects. I always use the auto light readings to ensure good pis; get beep and green light then shoot photo. Bad results all morning. Some come out, others are washed out, and most don't even register with the camera.I tried the standard turn off, reset method, refocus, reshoot using the auto setttings in both landscape and floral mode. It would repeat err result. I retried using manual lens focus mode. repeat result. reinstall batery and lens.. to get same results. Purchased a polarized lens filter to "correct" washed out, overlighted images in march when problem started getting more common. But it had no real berring on cameras success / fail rates.I got better results with my 2mp camera phone. Need to figure out what is causing this bc I depend on my cameras to record subjects for refernces in later paintings.\015

As a professional PGA Photographer, I never shoot on Auto anything...Manual only, digital cameras have a habit of giving the CCD unit the wrong reading...also, it sounds like your battery is not strong enough for that camera....try a higher Amp...instead of 1500mAh...try a 1800mAh ....wish you luck...you sound like a good photographer.

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

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.

I have an olympus fe340 camera. Recently the pictures started coming out with all light. Sometime there are just striped of bright, white light layered horizontally in the pictures. Outside pictures are the worst. can I send you a picture to see it?


This is almost certainly a failed image sensor and there is nothing which you can do to fix it. if the LCD screen on the camera shows pictures correctly which were taken before the fault occurs it confirms that it's a sensor fault.The FE- ... Olympus FE-340 Digital Camera

Canon SD600 I used my camera to take pictures of fireworks and I noticed that afterwards, all the photos I was taking outside in daylight were turning white. If I take pictures in the dark, they turn out perfect, and low light pictures are fairly normal except anywhere where there is a light source (lamp, window, etc) the color is streaky and orange. This particular camera has no way to adjust the aperture settings and I am considering taking it to a shop to have it looked at. Is there anything

I first experienced a problem with my Canon S2Is camera when it was only taking pictures of blank images. I found a "fix" recommendation which seems to have gotten rid of the black image problem. However, now when I take pictures the images seem to have horizonal lines through them if I don't use the flash. Also, if I am taking a picture outside or in a lot of light, the image ends up being extremely light. Have any suggestions?


Think you need to do the fix more. Believe your shutter was previously stuck in the closed position. Now it sounds like it is stuck in the open position. Again keep trying the fix to loosen it up. Just to confirm, the "fix" you're talking about i ... Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera

Over exposure My camera was working great until about 2 months ago when I tried taking pictures outside and they were over exposed. I checked my settings and they were normal ( always keep it on automatic); however, I even changed them yet my pictures outside or inside (in bright light) are all over exposed. What could be the cause of this problem? Thanks!

My canon powershot s3 IS is taking really dark pictures. The only decent pictures I can take with it are outside in sunlight. Pics indoors come out dark and grainy. I flip up the flash, but most of the time the flash doesn't go off, like there is enough light. And then when it does go off, the picture is way too bright. Help please!!


This is not an answer. The S3 normally does not produce dark pictures, and I have seen this issue before. It has to do with a setting somewhere on that camera that needs to be adjusted. I wish I knew what that setting was/is as my wife's camer ... Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera
