Having problems with your Sony Mavica MVC-CD500 Digital Camera ?

When taking pictures there is a color displacement of some sort. Leaves like bright purples and pinks shadowing images.It is worse in lighted areas, the more sunlight/bulb light the worse the coloring splotches are. I have reset the camera and still no luck.

Answers :

\015\012The term for an out-of-focus purple "ghost" image on a photograph is "Purple Fringing."
This is fairly common in Digital Photography.
\015\012In order to minimize instances of purple fringing you may incorporate the following:
\015\012Avoid shooting with big aperture (Small /f number) in high contrast compositions.
\015\012Avoid overexposing highlights (e.g. bright sky behind dark objects).
\015\012Shoot with a UV/Skylight Filter or a Circular Polarizing Filter. These protect the lens and also help to Get bluer skies and cut glare off reflective objects.
\015\012You could also use Post-processing to remove purple fringing by scaling the fringed color channel. This can be done in an image editor like Photoshop.
\015\012These suggestions will help in minimizing the instances of color displacement for you.
\015\012I will look forward to your feedback and positive rating.

White balance I have an ongoing problem with all my images having a stronge red / yellow color cast to them. It does not matter if I'm in the daylight or shooting under flouresent lights. When I use my flash the area directly in front of the flash is usually ok, but where the flash falls off, the immediate area has that color cast to it. Example: If I take a picture of the front fender, of a vehicle from six feet away, the fender is usually ok but the chrome wheel, tire and pavement have the red

The screen of my M1 and photos taken have all darkened. It only lights up in a pink tint ever so slightly when facing light areas. This has happened overnight. When I upload them on the computer they are still really dark photos. I don't think it is a problem with the screeen. But a problem within the camera. Any help is appreciated! Thanks.


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

Pink pictures the other day.... I was using my camera and it started showing lines through the image, the image quality was getting worse and worse.  I figured needs new batteries.  So I put new batteries in it and now it takes pink pictures!  How strange my evergreen pictures look in fushia color!   I tried and tried for a couple of weeks, I checked all the settings, even took the batteries out and restarted, but still pink!  all shades of pink!  Here's where it really gets odd, I got my camera

Hi all -- This is a physical problem with the way the lens is seated. I didn't figure this out myself; I was told it by a camera repair shop guy who also owned a 945 and had the same problem. Basicly, you adjust the lens, relative to the body, by d ... HP Photosmart 945 Digital Camera

My Casio Exilim S770 won't turn on or charge in the cradle. The lights on the cradle won't even come on. I bought another battery charger and even another battery, but the camera still won't come on. When I put the charged battery in, the camera begins to heat up and even feels very warm to the touch; but will not turn on. I've taken the memory card out, checked that the battery is in correctly--but still no luck. HELP!

My NIkon D70s has colored streaks and grainy pixels throughout all of my photos. This happened a few times intermittently and cleared by turning the camera on and off. It is now worse and doing it on every photo. Turning the camera off no longer clears the problem. I have tried different lenses and the problem is consistent with all of them so it is specific to the camera itself. I have reset the menu but the problem still persists.

Green output when i take pictures in well-lighted places , the image become greenish. I already tried changing the WHITE BALANCE and even the FILTER setting but still there is a problem.

Nikon D80. It worked fine until recently (maybe after I took pictures during whale-watching in a heavy rain and camera got wet). Now the view in the viewfinder is kind of greyish and blurry. Focus area brackets in the viewfinder are now always visible and white. And when I half-press the shutter button the whole viewfinder flashes in red color. Basically, the camera still works and takes pictures, but it is hard to see through the viewfinder and it behaves very strangely.

Seems like your problem on greyish/blurry viewfinder is caused by the camera getting water logged. Get your cam cleaned by Nikon.\015\012\015\012The flashing red light usually happens if you have this indicator set in the camera. This m ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera

When the Camera Is In Manual Mode, It will not Change Focus... I spin the wheel and nothing happens. Also i have just discovered in this mode, if i take a photo without the flash on, it will come out black, even with very good lighting, and when the flash is on, its still rather dark and its only the immediate area, (you can't see the background) What is going on???

I don't know about your camera, but when mine is in manual mode, it allows me to set the aperture and shutter speed but does not affect the autofocus. To make the focus manual, I have to move a switch next to the lens. When in manual mode, are you se ... Fuji FinePix S9500 Zoom Digital Camera

Nikon CoolPix S500 shows colored lines on lcd and in photos where the lights are bright. I have restored settings tried using it with no flash, soft flash, and auto flash and the problem continues.

Battery problem This morning I turned on my brand new Nikon Coolpix 5400 and got nothing on the screen. pushed some buttons and still nothing. Went to turn it off and it won't. The lens stays extended and the power light is still on. I don't know if maybe the batteries are so low they can't do anything, but I was under the impression that the camera had an indicator for the batteries really needing to be recharged. The low battery light was on last night, but I haven't seen need to be recharged

Some of these cameras go from "low" to "no" very quickly. The electronics are more sensitive to available voltage than the mechanicals and it doesn't take full voltage to keep an led lit or to retract the lens. But the cpu shuts down. I would have ex ... Nikon Coolpix 5400 Digital Camera

When shooting indoors with my 300d (base rebel digital),I have been encountering some light metering problems.I use the 430ex as an external flash. While shooting a subject in front of an external light source-(window, etc.), no matter how small of the frame area include the outside light source, the cameras light meter will invaribly expose the entire image based on the outside ambient light, causing the image to be grossly underexposed. Do you have an explanation/solution for this aggrivating
