Question about Nikon Coolpix 5400 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Exposure problems My CP 5400 is unable to get the correct exposure. It underexposes (even with all possible exposure correction)and the dark parts of the picture get a greenish tinge. The sunlit parts turn purple. It's a strange situation. Any ideas what to do? Is there a way to reload the camera's firmware? Is the firmware available anywhere?

Pictures too dark

Check your exposure compensation. It really sounds like someone set the camera to underexpose. This may be solved by removing the batteries for a few minutes. Other solutions are hitting the reset which will cancel all and return it to factory settings OR navigate to the exposure compensation settings and reset it there. If none of these solutions work, then the camera's internal program is messed up and its internal computer needs replaced.

Ex & Built-in Flash

You need to do what is called an exposure lock. Aim at the subject, even if it's out of focus and half press your shutter. Then press the * button on the camera (top right) and it will exposure lock. You can then re-focus, but it will hold the exposure that was metered previously, so you'll get focus on a different object to what the camera has focused on. You can exposure lock anywhere, it doesn't even have to be your subject, it could be a nearby window to underexpose, or a nearby dark area to underexpose. Once you've locked the exposure you can focus somewhere else.

Exposure compensation problems

The exposure compensation stays where you leave it unless you do a full reset or a custom reset, and except when you're using scene modes. But you don't need to do a reset to cancel out an exposure compensation -- simply use the exposure compensation button to adjust the compensation back to 0.0EV.

what do you mean dark? if they are underexposed... extend you exposure time.

There is a small round button near the shutter release... hold that down, and rotate that thumb wheel thingy. You can over or underexpose your camera's auto metering by 2 stops in 1/2 stop increments...

After that, you should learn how to take control of the camera and shoot in manual mode. It give you the ultime power

Time for new flash??

the camera's light sensor or metering system, for correct flash exposure is no longer working, that's why your shots is either black or white (overexposed or underexposed) the flash firing has loose its control because of the defective sensor, it now only depends on the charge current of the flash capacitor. If you'll wait longer time the charge is maximum picture result will be overexposed(white), and vice versa, less charge, dark result, have the flash assy replaced. Daylight no problem, it doesnt use the flash circuitry, thanks

Exposure problem

I've found that the *istD underexposes ( as it should metering 18% grey ) light subjects, or with light backgrounds. A white wall using TTL ( AF500ftz ) behind any subject it always turns grey! You need to manually adjust 1 stop over. With dark subjects, overexposing with out blowing out much. If your used to the metering from a PS digi cam the *istD takes a bit of getting used to.

Pictures are underexposed

When you are photographing scenes with mostly light objects (for example, snow, water, and sand), the picture is usually underexposed (darker than it really is). The camera meter registers the brightness of the scene and tries to set the camera lens and aperture for an exposure based on average brightness levels (18% reflectance) causing it to underexpose, as in the following picture. When you are photographing scenes with mostly dark objects (for example, shade, shadow, and overcast skies), and very few light objects, the camera may overexpose the image, causing it to be too light. If you have a flash on your camera, you can compensate by adding "fill flash" for some extra light. If your camera has an exposure compensation adjustment, you can increase or decrease the exposure to correct for these exposure problems. Increase the number to make the image lighter, and decrease the number to make the image darker. You may want to try a series of shots with different exposure compensation adjustments to get a feel for how much difference these adjustments make.
