The discoloring problem is quite common, but its hard to tell from your post what?s the degree of the defect.\015\012\015\012Unfortunately the LCD screen washing out in bright sunlight is a\015\012problem on many digitals, and also streaking lines coming off bright areas. There are hoods that you can buy for the Nikons that\015\012will fix this problem. I don't have any links to them but they are not\015\012hard to find. \015\012\015\012If you think your problem is really too much to absorb, feel it can't possibly be anything normal, or have problems with the actual pictures as they transfer to a computer, I suggest you take it back to the store and say you're not satisfied with the product.\015\012\015\012Hope it turns out well.

Canon PowerShot SX10 IS- When looking through the viewfinder (display screen is turned in,not in use) to either take a picture or to review previously taken pictures, everything in the viewfinder appears blurry.

I cannot take a picture. When I try nothing shows up in the viewfinder and nothing shows up on the memeory card. Old pictures still show up in the viewfinder when I scroll through the pictures. The camera will show nine pictures but only the two old ones will be displayed when scrolling through.

Nikon D80. It worked fine until recently (maybe after I took pictures during whale-watching in a heavy rain and camera got wet). Now the view in the viewfinder is kind of greyish and blurry. Focus area brackets in the viewfinder are now always visible and white. And when I half-press the shutter button the whole viewfinder flashes in red color. Basically, the camera still works and takes pictures, but it is hard to see through the viewfinder and it behaves very strangely.


Seems like your problem on greyish/blurry viewfinder is caused by the camera getting water logged. Get your cam cleaned by Nikon.\015\012\015\012The flashing red light usually happens if you have this indicator set in the camera. This m ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera

I've recently wet-cleaned my Sony A100 sensor and in the process, I attempted to clean the viewfinder pieces. The reason being that the image in the viewfinder was littered with spots, but the image was turning out perfect, so I assumed the viewfinder was dusty. I unlatched the individual pieces and cleaned them. After cleaning them, I put them back in and when I took the picture, the viewfinder was blurred, but the image taken was sharp. The diopter did not make a difference in the viewfinder's


Viewfinders are very sensitive and delicate. The best and safest way to clean the viewfinder screen is not to touch\015\012it and not to use solvents on it. No matter how dirty it is it won't\015\012affect the image. If it gets dusty, use a blower to ... Digital Cameras

Blurry LCD Well, I have recently got a SD400 camera from dell.com. The first thing I noticed was the inaccurate LCD. The picture in the LCD seemed blurry(bad resolutoin, weird coloring) and inaccurate. But, after actually taking the pictures, the picture seemed perfect. (In the review mode and the display right after you take a picture.) Is this a problem? This is my first digital camera, thus I had no previous experience with camera LCD. Or is this normal, without flash, everything is suppose
