Having problems with your Olympus Stylus 720 SW Digital Camera ?

Outdoor shots are blue

\015 I'm having trouble with my Olympus 720 SW - whenever I take outdoor shots, the photos come out with a very noticeable blue tint. Indoor is fine. I've tried changing the setting to outdoor, portrait, etc. nothing is working. Any ideas?\015

If you mean the blue violet thing, you may not be able to solve this. It is the thing that this camera cannot compete well to the other brands.
Hey VickylnStL,
\015\012 What I believe is going on is your white balance setting has been set to incandescent light which on your camera is a light bulb. For outdoor shots you should have the camera set to auto white balance, or have the white balance symbol set to the sun icon or the cloud icon depending on the conditions outside. I hope this helps!

Blue photos Can anyone tell me some reasons why some outdoor shots I took of snow/trees, etc. might look blueish? I took some pictures at sundown that came out fine, and ones I took about 10 minutes later look blue. I don't recall changing any settings. I also took similar shots at the same time with another digital camera and those looked fine. Is this something that's common in low light with a lot of white background? (Or is this a "user problem?")

Snow pictures tend to be blue due to the blue spectrum being scattered and reflected from the snow (similar to why the sky is blue). Plus just after sunset, you're going to get a cooler color temperature (blue cast).\015\012\015\012However, instead o ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ10 Digital Camera

Colour On recent photographs there's a distinct green tinge, particularly noticeable on outdoor shots. I can correct this in an editor, usually by reducing the green a little and increasing the blue level. The green tinge seems to be consistent, not just occasional photos. I can't find any obvious way of dealing with this in the camera manual, unless the white balance can be used to remedy it. I notice there's a footnote: 'The colour tones may vary somewhat depending on the shooting condition

Blury images Re: Sony Cyber-shot 6mp (DSC-H2) Our outdoor images are beautiful but nearly all of our indoor images are blury/shaky making the camera unusable. We use the Auto Adjustment setting both indoors and outdoors since we are mainly taking candid photos of our kids/family members. We reviewed the menus & manual but we can't figure it out. Is the ''Super Steady Shot'' function turned off? Can I return it to the factory setting? TY in advance.

Blue Hue I have 2 A345 cameras. One is continually taking pictures with a very blue hue to them, useless as a photo, whilst the other camera with same settings takes great pictures.

I have a Canon PowerShot A95 that has provided very good service for four years. But recently, the color and images are very distorted in some photos - faded purple in color with the image blurred or melted, sometimes icicle-like or stalactite-like in appearance. This occurs in both outdoor and indoor shots. These distortions do not occur in every shot, but have increased in frequency. This is the only problem I have ever had with this camera.

Olympus D-435 Our camera has been working fine until last week when we started getting this error message - memory full on a blue screen when we had taken only one photo (and deleted all previous photos). Thinking there was a problem with the memory card, we removed it and used only the camera's internal memory which worked for a short while - allowing us to take 12 shots - but now it will only let us take 1 shot before giving us the error message. Is there anything I can do? Many thanks

You can try updating the firmware of the camera since this is not a problem with the memory card its with the camera itself you can check Olympus web site for software update on this.Hope that helps....... ... Digital Cameras

Focusing Problems I just bought the Canon 20d. I shot a wedding with it two weeks ago, and really liked how it performed in low light.
