Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare C743 Digital Camera ?

No good pictures

\015 Whenever i take a picture inside a room there is a yellow or red hand on top telling me the picture is garbage, please tell me how to fix it\015

Answers :

The symbols you are seeing are the blur warning indicators.

The yellow hand warns you that the picture may not be quite sharp enough for a standard 6" x 4" print - however you may be happy with it.

The red hand warns you that the picture is most likely to be poor quality, and won't produce a good 6" x 4" printed photo.

The reason you're getting these indoors, is that there's not enough light for the camera to take a good picture. As it tries to do so, it opens the shutter for longer to let more light in - however on doing so, if the camera isn't absolutely still, then the warning symbols will come on.

To remedy the above I'd have the following suggestion - if possible and practical, when shooting indoors, try and rest the camera on something solid when taking a photo. If this is not possible - try leaning against a wall to stabilise yourself. Even though you think you are holding the camera still - it's moving quite a lot.

Try one hand held photo - and one photo with the camera resting on something solid like a table and see what the difference is.

For several years my C-3020 zoom camera has worked fine. Suddenly, now when I take a picture, the picture leaves when I snap the shutter. Always before the picture remained on the screen so I could see if it was a good take. I can't figure out why it has stopped holding the shot. Any answer for me please?? The way it's working now I have to wait and see if it was a good shot later.

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

Purple image was visible in viewfinder and in picture, came on at rare random in 2 months ago. The picture became more frequent, and picture had vertical distortion as well. Pictures unusable. Then good pictures were rare. Now the view in the view finder is black and white only with an electronic type of squiggle between the two colors.

It doesn't matter what I do, i.e., adjust the setting, exposure, etc., 9 out of 10 pictures come out all blurry. Is it just not a good camera, or is there any other suggestions from people out there that may be of help to me. Thank you for all that respond.
