Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18K Digital Camera ?
Exposure dark / yellowish tint
\015 When I take pictures inside or somewhat dark places it comes out dark or yellowish tint. This happens even with the flash open / on. How can I fix this.\015
The noise reduction aspect of this camera can cause some of this--you may wish to reduce the noise reduction in the quality settings of the camera (see your manual for directions) further, if you are open to post-production fixes you may wish to use a program like Adobe Lightroom2 to correct some of this. Finally you may wish to shoot indoors using the RAW or RAW+JPEG setting. Doing so will give you more control over post-production color correction, and somewhat less artifacting from the noise reduction software.

Exposure problems My CP 5400 is unable to get the correct exposure. It underexposes (even with all possible exposure correction)and the dark parts of the picture get a greenish tinge. The sunlit parts turn purple. It's a strange situation. Any ideas what to do? Is there a way to reload the camera's firmware? Is the firmware available anywhere?

Dark Images At some point, the images from the camera became very dark in automatic mode. Previous to that, the images were perfect. I have checked all settings many times and changed back to default settings. Nothing has seemed to work other than to change mode to "P" and set for extra exposure. Thanks.

Dark exposure I have a Nkon D40x. Setting the selector to Auto, Shutter or Appature(SP) the image comes out dark. The historgram shows a spike that is totally contained in the first quarter of the screen. When I use the manual setting the image improve as the shutter speed was slowed down (1/80sec and ~7f the image improves). Any guess as to what is happening?

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.

The screen of my M1 and photos taken have all darkened. It only lights up in a pink tint ever so slightly when facing light areas. This has happened overnight. When I upload them on the computer they are still really dark photos. I don't think it is a problem with the screeen. But a problem within the camera. Any help is appreciated! Thanks.

Hi, I have a Canon 20D and a Sppedlite 550EX (I use for almost every shot). My problem is that 80-90% of my photos always return back from the printers too dark. I know this sounds like a printing issue, however I have tried 4 different printers and still have the same problem. I have tried up'ing my exposure both on my camera and flash, but this just overexposes parts of the photo too much. My histogram also looks relatively correct on these shots. I appreciate that photos will be taken too dar

Images I seem to get yellowish images and images that are really dark even when I put the flash on. The flash seems weak, almost defected. But then in the next series of shots it will work and the picture will come out just fine. All of this in the same setting with the same subject and everything else a constant too. Help please, it seems like I must be doing something wrong either that or my camera is broken. P.S. it is brand new Amber
No that isn't it but I am not offended. The flash in fact looks like it goes off but at 10% of the full strength. I had other people try to take a picture to see if the same thing happened to them and it did and I saw them, they did not have their ha ... Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera
