Having problems with your Pentax Digital Cameras ?

When I am taking pictures outdoors there is so much glare that I can not see the picture I am taking.

Answers :

Have you tried a glare shield, or LCD hood?
\015\012A glare shield reduced reflections, whilst an LCD hood folds out and provides "miniature shade" to assist in viewing.
\015\012Here's a 2.5" example (for pentax). Generic ones (such as Delkin) are cheaper.

I have had my camera for not even a year and it recently started having this problem. Whenever I take a picture, the object will look fine in the display, but when I take the picture it gets horizontal lines across the picture. It is much worse if there is any natural light coming into the picture. I have tried adjusting the flash, the white balance, but the pictures are still coming out this way. Also, if there is a good amount of natural light, you can't see the object you at all, it looks

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

Why is my olympus e420 taking green tinted photos? I bought a new camera which I received yesterday, and it was until earlier, but has suddenly started taking yellowy/greeny tinted images. I've tried changing the settings, I've changed the camera modes, I reset the settings altogether and even changed lenses and yet the camera still takes tinted pictures, inside and outside. Also, when I switch the camera to live-view mode (shows exactly what the lens sees) it shows pretty much an entire green s

I've got a Fujifilm F30. Since yesterday, its not working properly. When I take photos, it 'absorbs' too much light and indoor photos becomes really bright and outdoor photos becomes nearly white from brightness. And when I transfer the pictures to computer, it has minor lines accross the picture. The video mode seems to be unaffected. What is the problem and is it worth fixing ? Would like to fix it if I can as F30 is still considered one of the best compact camera Fuji has ever made ! Thanks.

MY camera seems to be overexposing all pictures taken , so that I can not take outdoor photos at all and can only take photos inside if I close the drapes and block all natural daylight. It seems as if perhaps a settings button has been accidently hit or something...NOT SURE but I do not see how to fix it.

I was taking pictures, but paused for a moment to find a better angle. I guess I got distracted for a few minutes. I went back to the camera to see that the screen was black. I thought it had turned itself off, but the lens was still out. I didn't pay much attention to it and went to turn it on. However it won't turn on and the lens is still out. I've put it on charge just now to see if that will help but I was wondering if this happened to anyone else, or just me?

Hi. Yes, that happened to me once. Battery went dead and doesn't have enough power left to retract the lens. Camera worked fine after I put in charged battery. I hope this is your case too. ... Digital Cameras

I have a Pentax K200D and I dropped it from less than a foot high on a rock (archaeological site) and now it won't take any new pictures. I can see the old pictures, I can see the menu and info but when I chose an option (like manual or sports) the information does appear on the screen. Also, when I take a picture, it seems to focus right, take the picture, but when I visualize it, it is completely dark... Finally, the flash won't come out if I press the button. Please help me!! :S Thx
