Question about Cameras

1 Answer

My Sony HC47 camcorder is showing exposed pictures in the viewfinder, I can record indoors but not outdoors because all I get is a white picture , with some scraps where the subjects are darker. It is only just out of warranty, any ideas please? Peter

    I should add that this problem is intermittent, it has now cleared itself, but this has happened three times now in two days.

    No simply way to open it. Lens mechanism requires high skills and as you said, you will find few parts left over after packing up it, so better get use to this intermittent problem... lol

When i take picture,the picture is white n some time become very very bright, but if take video is ok.


this can be usually associated with your white balance in still camera mode.
Check to see your white balance is set correctly or just set it to auto. Also make sure the mode you are in it set. (ie. indoor, outdoor, auto, speed)

Konica Minolta Dimage E50 suddenly over expose. Indoor at night, the picture looks almost normal. Daytime the wall will be too white. Outdoor the picture is white out.


Hi!
The shutter cable inside the lens has broken - a common problem with the E50. The cable moves as the lens zoom so it brakes at some point and then camera isn't able to control the shutter - control the amount of light taken. If you look closely at the over exposed pictures, you will notice horizontal lines accross them.
The shutter or whole lens unit has to be changed. It is quite expensive, I believe it's not worth it. You can contact Sony / Konica - Minolta service center.
I work in a Sony / Konica - Minolta service center and have repaired a lot of these.

Hope this helps!

Re: outdoor pics very light


It sounds like overexposure. If you are in Auto mode, you should have your settings automatically so you shouldn't get overexposure and if you are, you may need to have your camera serviced.

Make sure your ISO is not high, make sure your shutter speed is not long and make sure your flash output is not high.

Other than that call Canon and set up service or get an upgrade through their Loyalty program.
