Having problems with your Konica Minolta DiMAGE G400 Digital Camera ?

In bright sunlight the photoes are over-exposed


Answers :

Hi there, If you have it on manual setting, try lowering the ISO setting on the camera to 100 or 200 maximum. Also, if you can set shutter speed, try speeding the shutter speed up to at least 1/200 sec or 1/500 sec and it should not overexpose anywhere near as much.

If you are on AUTO mode, check you have not dialled in a mode like night shooting or low light shooting. If you have a sports shooting mode, set it to that and take some photos outside to see if they are still overexposed.

if after you have tried all the above, the shots are still overexposed, you may have a problem with your camera requiring fixing from the manufacturer.

Hope this helps!
I found the answer on another board

\015\012It happened also to me the problem is caused by a broken flat cable, which is connecting aperture/shutter coils from inside of the lenses to controller board - it is poorly manufactured probably too short (extra stress at end of zoom). I tried to repair it - by soldering to repair the damaged part, see some photos there:

Be careful when trying the same, not forget to discharge the flash capacitor and document all the taken-off parts to be able to assemble everything back together

Image quality Hi. When I'm taking photos and set my exposure manually on my Canon 20D, the image looks right exposed on my LCD screen, but when I download all the photos on my PC, all the photos are VERY DARK. This takes lots of time for me to edit it and then after I've got the right brightness on my PC I discovered that the image quality is VERY BAD!!! There is lots of noise on the image. Can someone help me to find a solution to correct the exposure on my camera, so that I can save time on my

I've got a Fujifilm F30. Since yesterday, its not working properly. When I take photos, it 'absorbs' too much light and indoor photos becomes really bright and outdoor photos becomes nearly white from brightness. And when I transfer the pictures to computer, it has minor lines accross the picture. The video mode seems to be unaffected. What is the problem and is it worth fixing ? Would like to fix it if I can as F30 is still considered one of the best compact camera Fuji has ever made ! Thanks.
