Having problems with your Nikon D50 Digital Camera ?

Light Meter When I am in manual mode, my light meter seems to be off, especially when I am in the sun. When I adjust the settings to even out the meter, my pictures always come out over exposed. I have to compensate by making them "under exposed" so that they come out normal. Does anyone know what the problem might be?


Answers :

Check your metering settings. Are you using centerweighted, matrix, or spot metering? Try setting camera to matrix metering, use program mode 'P' and adjust exposure to default.

My sd700 is auto-metering light incorrectly and the pictures come out too dark. Sometimes simply re-framing/re-focusing the shot will make it work correctly, but not usually. Is it broken? Have I set something incorrectly? Is there a way to re-set the camera back to all its original default settings?

When shooting indoors with my 300d (base rebel digital),I have been encountering some light metering problems.I use the 430ex as an external flash. While shooting a subject in front of an external light source-(window, etc.), no matter how small of the frame area include the outside light source, the cameras light meter will invaribly expose the entire image based on the outside ambient light, causing the image to be grossly underexposed. Do you have an explanation/solution for this aggrivating

Hi, I purchased a replacement LCD screen for my SD3500 from Rongstar DigitalInc.

Extreme overexposure Outdoor photos are mostly blank - white. Indoor photos are okay if there is very little light and I have it set on the "snow" setting. If there is light from a window then the indoor photos are over exposed as well, often with horizontal lines and/or blurry pictures. It seems that the shutter is open too long, but I don't know why. The ISO settings and the Exposure Compensation are set normally. I have 2 of these cameras, one works fine (but has a black fleck in the

How do you set camera for backlighting, for example shooting a subject inside with light coming through the window which would make the subject dark but has clear background. I have a Canon A95 digital.

I tried to take a shot of the Vanderbilt baseball stadium, and it came out a little soft and out of focus. I was in Apperture priority at F8 to maximize the depth of field, exposure compensation -2/3EV, metered in the field, and tried to focus on the two guys sitting there in the midfield. Tried one shot AF, the manually tweaking it in OIS mode 2. On screen it looked fine, but on the computer screen not so much so. What could I have done to make it better? How can I set the focus to infinity?

White Pictures I have had my D40X for over a year. At first it was great. Lately about every few pictures comes out white or way over-exposed. I have to look at the screen after every picture to make sure it isn't white , if it is, I have to shoot again.
