Over exposure of images


\015 Take a phot with camera and all images are over exposed.\015\012\015\012Have adjusted settings and this is not the problem.\015

Answers :

Unfortunatly, all I can offer you is an accurate testing for the settings, in order To verify that the camera cannot make a proper exposure. Go outdoors on a sunny day, put the camera on manual, aperture to f8 and shutter speed to 1/500 and ISO at 100. You should get a pretty good picture with proper exposure. \015\012This is the "Sunny 16 rule", F16 at 1/125 ISO 100 which is EV15. Correct exposure for a clear sunny day, not in the shade. \015\012\015\012if it fails, I would say there's some problem in the mechanizm, probobly one that requires a technician, or at least more knowladge than I can offer you.\015\012good luck.

Viewing exposures on file in chip some images are blank with notation "file error". How can I recover Image? The camera is relatively new for me and I do not have much experience asyet. There were a number of exposures on the chip and I was showing them to my wife on our computer. Later when I was reviewing the exposures with a friend a random number of exposures were blank with the note "file error". I questioned a sales person at a local Best Buy outlet and he suggested contacting the Manu on-

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. This takes lots of time for me to edit it and then after I've got the right brightness on my PC I discovered that the image quality is VERY BAD!!! There is lots of noise on the image. Can someone help me to find a solution to correct the exposure on my camera, so that I can save time on my

I have a D300 with a 4gig card. Takes 366 images at 12 megapixels. Using CH mode and taking lots of exposures of a couple of subjects plus single exposures the control panel tells me after a total of 212 exposures I have 250 exposures left. Is this normal? or is there a software problem? John Auckram


Unless I'm mistaken, does the camera take the full 12MP when shooting in CH mode? I don't think so and that would explain why you still have 250 exposures left. ... Digital Cameras

Hi all, I wonder if you can supply some advice regarding a Sigma17-35mm lens I purchased earlier in the year. Basically if I use the automatic or 'P' setting on my Canon EOS 30D camera the image is over exposed by 1 to 2 stops. If I use the same functions with my Canon 18 -55 kit lens the exposure is correct so I would presume the camera is not causing the problem. The only way I can get a correct exposure with the Sigma lens is to compensate manually for each shot. Please note the exposure p


Try your EOS in AV (aprature value) mode. You should be able to adjust your aperature value in 1/3 or 1/2 steps dependind how you have your Custom Functions set in your camera's menu. Possibly the lens you purchased is for an EOS 35mm. If you use a 3 ... Sigma Digital Cameras

Hi! I am writing an image processing program. Part of it is integrating the image acquisition frontend into the program. Do you know where I can get the driver (or component) to include in the program written to manipulate the basis camera operation (Canon 500D, shutter speed, exposure, focusing, image storage)? Thanks. Best Regards, John Chiang

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?


Check your ISO setting...should be between 100 to 400 for normal pictures.Did you change your exposure compensation setting to something other than "0"? Is the aperture ring on the lens set to the "A" position? ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera

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.


Even in automatic mode, camera still lets you pick what ISO to use. If ISO-Auto is OFF in camera menus, this can give some dark images. Press and hold ISO button and rotate command dial to give a higher ISO, or turn ISO-Auto on in camera menu with cr ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera

Hi, I have a Canon T2i Rebel. When i put the camera in "M" (totally manual), the image doesnt appear in the LCD screen.

"overexposure" The problem arose after I visited a botanical garden and went from cold outside weather to high temperature and humidity conditions. The next day I found that the image through the viewfinder and lens appeared vastly overexposed, nearly all white. If I focused on an object, the exposure would return to normal, but the picture taken was shot through all over with fine white lines, making it indecipherable. The exposure through the lens and viewfinder has now returned to normal, but

Canon A560 camera problem - the images are overexposed. I checked the exposure setting, AWB, and all other settings and they are all normal.
