Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix L22BLUE Digital Camera ?

When I take pictures of car interiors the black always shows up as light gray, how make it balck?



Answers :

The auto exposure setting tries to average the exposure to that of a typical snapshot scene, which in a predominately dark setting means that it over-exposes, lightening the picture overall. You need to use some form of manual exposure setting or exposure compensation. This will require experimentation to get right. I am not sure what exposure modes your camera offers.

You could start with altering the EV value if your camera has that setting. You are aiming to underexpose the shot from what the camera thinks is the "right" exposure. If you have a manual exposure mode, you can alter the exposure using the appropriate controls to less than the camera suggests. Some cameras have spot metering that will allow you to select a portion of the scene that has average lighting, press the shutter partway, then (still holding the shutter button part pressed), recompose the shot to what you want it to look like before pressing the button fully. Some cameras have a bracketing mode that will take multiple exposures each side of the average, giving you one that is right and several that aren't. Luckily, on a digital camera you can try any or all of these until you find a method that works for you without it costing anything but time.

Black Screen I have taken really good care of my camera and it has never been dropped. I went on a Cruise a few months ago and one day into the cruise the screen wouldn't show anything. It was just a black screen. When I took pictures they turned out black too. I am still able to navigate the menus and see pictures on my SD card. Even after returning to Colorado, a dry climate, the screen is always black and taking black pictures. Is there something I can do to fix this problem or should I just

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

Black-out I've had my camera for about six months now, since February. It's worked fine, and I never had a problem, until about two weeks ago. Now, when I turn it on, all I see is black. If shaken it shows an image for about two seconds, before it goes black again. Taking pictures doesn't do anything, it's still black. Sometimes I can get an image, but it's grainy and only shows up as blue with light on the main object. It's worked fine up until now. I've changed the batteries a few times, but i

The LCD Monitor of my Canon PowerShot A95 shows purple, white, and black horizontal lines instead of a clear image of what is in the Viewfinder. Pictures taken while showing up this way on the LCD Monitor turn out with the same fuzzy stripes. Light lines show up in the well-lit areas of the scene and dark lines show up where the scene is dark. The problem was intermittent for months but now cannot be corrected by powering off.
