Dsc wx5 Hi guys, maybe some sweet guy in here can help me. When i take a "standard" picture the camera tunes up the light so much that I can´t see anything on the picture it almost looks like a blank white page. This only happens when i take a standard picture. I can do panorama picture, 3D picture and video recording perfectly. I have tried everything in the settings menu, i have reset the camera, but nothing seems to help. If i take a picture where the is not much light, the picture is v

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
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
Christmas lights I want to take a picture of the Christmas lights on our house at night. How should I set my camera to get the best picture of this? Can I get a good picture without using the flash? I'd rather not use it since it will diminish the effect of the lights at night.
No flash and set the shutter a little slow also use a camera stand if possible! ... Kodak EasyShare C743 Digital Camera
I have a Fuji FinePix A330 camera and when I try to take a picture in the light, daylight or lamp light, lines appear through the picture. Sometimes fine lines but other times like a burst of light. This just started happening recently. But when I take a picture in the dark with the flash the photo turns out fine. Any answer as to what caused this? Thanks

I have had my camera for not even a year and it recently started having this problem. Whenever I take a picture, the object will look fine in the display, but when I take the picture it gets horizontal lines across the picture. It is much worse if there is any natural light coming into the picture. I have tried adjusting the flash, the white balance, but the pictures are still coming out this way. Also, if there is a good amount of natural light, you can't see the object you at all, it looks
If I understand you correctly, you're saying that the LCD display shows a normal picture when you are composing your shot, but that when you actually snap the shutter to record the shot, the resulting image has nasty lines across it?That ... Casio Exilim EX-S5 Digital Camera
I have a Canon Rebel XSi. I'm trying to shoot a photo of my sleeping 2 year old, so the light is obviously low. I have the cameral on manual mode. I used the light meter to obtain my exposure, but when I push the button to take the picture, nothing happens. On the right side of the light meter, there is a blinking green light when I try to take the picture. What am I doing wrong? I'm out of town and I forgot my camera manual; I think I remember something in there about troubleshooting this parti

Close-up picture Hi! I purchased my camera to take up close-up pictures of handmade greeting cards. The cards are 4" x 5 1/2" with lots of little details. I'd like to show as much detail as possble. I'm not sure what the best setting are? I've tried using the flash, but the whole picture just glares out, the light bounces off of the card and makes a big glare in the center. Without the flash, the picture is too dark. Can you help me figure out the best setting to use? Or, what kind of lighting

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
It sounds like you may be in a low light mode. Put the camera in record mode, and then press the set button (in the middle of the up down left right keys). You probably want the camera to be in automatic mode (or A). If this doesn't solve the prob ... Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital Camera
I tried to take a picture at night of the christmas tree with lights on on the tree - all other house lights were out and the picture still turns out bright like I had lights on-is there a special setting I should use
Your camera tries to compensate for the lack of light by overexposing the picture. You can override this by using the "exposure compensation" control. On most cameras, it's a button with a +/- on it. You press it and set the guage to a lower number. ... Kodak EasyShare CX7525 Digital Camera
Problematic Camera I have a EasyShare DX4530 which has suddenly started acting funny. Here's the sequence of events: - power up works fine - lens comes out ok - green light glows steady, ready for a picture - picture takes fine - green light doesn't turn on again - no amount of pressing the shutter button will bring the green ready light back - pressing the SHARE button a couple times (sometimes 2, 3, even 4 times) will move thru the share sequence and then finally exit that function, turning
I just discovered that the real problem is a STICKY SHUTTER BUTTON, staying down after taking a picture. This prevents the green ready light from coming on until I jiggle the shutter button. It has actually started to be hard to press, making a defin ... Kodak EasyShare DX4530 Digital Camera

It may be that you have inadvertently set your camera to shoot 'bracketing up' - ie over exposing for every shot. You need to look at the exposure ruler which looks something like this: l---l---l---l---l \015\012The centre bar is the correct exposure ... Canon PowerShot A470 Digital Camera
Overexposed picture when shot in Auto mode, in bright light picture comes as absolutely overexposed. In less light conditions, picture is good without flash but comes as overexposed again.
My guess is the the EV setting is on the + side and not neutral (0).\015\012Either that or Image Adjustment setting is wrong. Check EV by pressing\015\012the +/- button (right side near On/Off switch). Hold EV selector and\015\012make s ... Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera

My screen is very dim, my pictures turn out clear and light but i cant see anything on the screen, even stored pictures. I have to put my memory card into a different camera or upload my pictures to see them. I dropped it lightly when it was OFF shortly before this started happening.

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
Olympus stylus zoom 140. Camera was great for about 2 years, pictures were great. My last two rolls of film developed with large, orange light streaks running vertically just to the right of center. Additionally, there were several "blobs" of orange light left of center. This occurred on 90% of the pictures, the remaining 10% were fine. Is this a light leak in the camera body? Is it worth trying to get Olympus to repair? Of course, the camera is now out of warrenty. Thanks for your time

When I turn on my PowerShot A80 the view screen is distorted or blank. When I snap a picture it comes out black. I can still review pictures that I have already taken with no problem. I have put in new batteries but it doesn't help. When I turn on my Powershot A80 the view windo has light streaks moving from left to right or sometimes the view window does not light up to show the picture I'm trying to shoot
This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:\015\ ... Canon PowerShot A80 Digital Camera
My Canon EOS rebel suddenly won't take pictures in dim light. The flash pops up and blinks and blinks trying to register the image but won't ever autofocus and take the picture. The light has to be very bright for it to take a picture. I have gone through all of the settings and everything seems to be correct. Any thoughts?
To autofocus the sensor needs a fair amount of contrast (light and dark eges) to operate. If you're trying to take a photo in a dim room of a dark colored subject for instance the focus won't lock and the camera won't take the picture. Try switching ...
