Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera ?

Sony DSC W50 Camera - Trouble with Flash

\015 Sometimes when I use my camera (not too often) the picture comes out perfect - just the right amount of light, etc. Most of the time though, the picture comes out real dark - sometimes it comes out almost whited out. I have tried every different setting possible - but, the problem still persists. I can take outdoor pictures without any problem - so, I am guessing the problem has to do with the flash. The camera is just a little over a year old and I do not feel like buying another - any help would be appreciated.\015

Answers :

Hi,\015\012I guess you are using the automatic mode ( not the "P" mode).\015\012
\015\012You should enable flash only when there is insuffient light.\015\012If you use flash in broad day light, your pic will be whited out.\015\012If you dont use flash in dark or low light, your pic will be dark or very dark.\015\012
\015\012So, when it comes of dark, try enabling the flash.\015\012If its still dark, increase the flash compensation (the eV value).\015\012If its still dark, increase the ISO number.\015\012
\015\012Hope these help.\015\012
