Having problems with your Pentax K7 Digital Camera ?

When I take daylight shots that have a large portion of sky in them, they are invariably underexposed. I have tried different modes, P and manual, and all have the same result. The meter "thinks" it is receiving more light than it is. I don't have the same problem when shooting scenes that don't have a lot of sky in them.


Answers :

There is nothing wrong with your camera. You nailed the explanation....your meter thinks there is plenty of light and cuts down the exposure. Two ways to do this:\0121. Point your camera toward the part you want properly exposed and press the exposure lock button. Then, recompose, focus and shoot.\0122.Press the exposure compensation button and set a lower number.

Adding WD-40 Will adding a little bit of wd-50 to the camera zoom swivel head affect the camera? I probably should have sprayed it on a napkin and wiped it but I sprayed it directly on. But not much at all. But my camera has completely stopped working and its stuck with the zoom out and everything. But it might also be a battery problem since I dont have my battery charger and dont know if the camera died but I dont think it would die with the lens still exposed. I have a Sone DSC-W50.

My Canon eos 1 n shows a bc error when I fire the shutter, it will AF, and meter the scene fine but then bc appears. I have been told by a tech that the shutter is fine, and that the board is fried. My thinking is if the board wasn't working surely it wouldn't focus or meter? It's a costly fix so I just want to confirm that I'm not getting taken for a ride, any thoughts.

Polaroid digital camera i832 was working fine through USB cable. Received an Ipod shuffle for Mother's day, downloaded the software, loaded my Ipod and now my camera doesn't work.

This is a mind bender, While doing a shoot using monolights connected to a Nikon D1x I encountered exposure problems. After the lights were metered for the best exposure, I started shooting. The first ten or so shots were fine, and all of a sudden the next ten shots looked like they were 8 stops over, and then it went to looking ok. The first thing I did was switch monolights thinking there was a problem with the flash, this did not resolve the issue. Next I switched camera bodies, still the int
