Having problems with your Polaroid i733LP Digital Camera ?

Background is overexposed

\015 About 20% of the time i take a picture the pictures have a bright white backround as though the flash overflashed.\015\012You can still see the subject you took the picture of but the picture itself is useless.\015

So, the problem doesn't seem to be the flash if the actual subject in\015\012the foreground is exposed properly. My guess is that the background is\015\012being lit by another light source. Typically, your camera uses a flash\015\012for dark areas or what it gauges as a dark area. This doesn't adjust\015\012the background for additional light sources. For example, if you're\015\012standing outside and there's a tree covering someone that you're taking\015\012a picture of your flash will adjust to "properly" light that\015\012individual. However, because the flash was used for the main subject,\015\012the background is actually now overexposed. The overexposed background\015\012will show up as a brightly lit area because the camera had to adjust\015\012for the foreground. This will actually reverse itself when it's dark\015\012out - meaning if the background and foreground are dark, the flash will\015\012expose the foreground, but the background will be black. Hopefully,\015\012that helps you understand lighting and exposure. Now, to fix this\015\012problem when shooting, you would need to consider several options - 1.\015\012SLR camera with aperture and f-stop settings as well as compensation\015\012controls. This will allow you to control every element of the exposure, but you still need to be aware of the lighting behind the "subject" to properly expose your shots. 2. backlighting compensation - common settings on both SLR and point and shoot cameras that makes auto lighting conversions for backlighting and other common lighting issues. Test whatever options are on your camera to see what works best for your specific problem. 3. Photoshop retouching - you may take one shot with your subject exposed properly and a second shot with the background then merge the images together. 4. using\015\012a tripod to shoot without using the flash - this may give you the closest exposure to exactly what you see when looking at your subject.

When i use the video setting on High Speed, the background is dark unlike the normal setting where the background is normal


Think about it...when on high speed, the shutter isn't open as long as when on "normal", therefore, less light hits the sensor. You could try raising the ISO setting or raising the exposure compensation setting for more light. ... Casio Exilim EX-S500 Digital Camera
