There are only two options for adjusting the brightness of pictures in this camera, exposure and flash setting.

1. Flash Options: The flash is off by default. To turn it on you must press the button with the crooked down-arrow label between the DISP and MENU buttons, and the flash status will display in the top right-hand corner of the display screen. OFF displays the crooked down-arrow and a circle with a line through it. Press the button once for AUTO, displays the crooked down arrow with an "A" next to it. Press the button once more to force the flash, displays the crooked arrow only in the top right-hand display. Regardless of mode, the display will blink rapidly while the flash is charging and remain solid when it is charged and ready for use. Keep pressing the crooked down-arrow button to scroll continuously through the three OFF/AUTO/ON options.

2. Exposure setting: Press MENU, then the left arrow on the top right-hand four-way button on the camera until the COLOR menu is selected. Scroll down to EXPOSURE and press the MENU button again. You will see EV on the display. Use the up and down arrows to increase or decrease the exposure setting. 0.0 is default, you can go up to +1.5 or down to -1.5. Press MENU to exit when you're done. +1.5 would be the maximum brightness setting.

Display is dark when taking picture


Display can be turned up brighter in the menu. If not possible then it is most likely faulty. Direct sun on the display makes it hard to see the image.

My pictures are to dark


if you are doing flash photography you will have to limit the shots to a distance of 10-15 feet to get nicely lit pics. also try setting the exposure compensation to +2 to brighten up the pic. Also are you shooting on manual ???

My husband pulls tractors at night at tractor pulls, everytime I try to get a picture its too dark, the lighting around the pull isn't the greatest but it has some light


There are several solutions to taking pictures in the dark or low light. Night time photography can be difficult without a tripod. There are three ways you can get a brighter photo
1. Larger aperture - Make sure the aperture is set to the lowest f-stop for the largest aperture. f/2.8 or f/5.6 depending on your lenses capabilities. Choose the lowest number
2. Longer shutter speed - A longer shutter speed will allow more light to hit the canera's sensor and create a brighter picture. Unfortunately with a longer shutter speed, you will probably need a tripod because the photo will come out motion-blurred otherwise.
3. Higher ISO - A higher ISO will make the camera's sensor more sensitive to light and therefore creating a brighter picture without having to have a longer shutter speed. High ISO, however, can introduce unpleasant noise/grain to a photo.

If you want to take your picture while holding the camera in your hands, I recommend the largest aperture (small f/stop) and a high ISO.
If you have a tripod, use it! and use a longer shutter speed since the tripod will hold the camera steady for you.

Good luck!

Camera flashes but pictures are too dark


When you take a picture with flash enabled and they still come out too dark, this could mean that you are not standing close enough to the subject, or, that the battery might be defective, or, low.

Another way of correcting this is to use a program for editing pics, which allows you to brighten them manually.


Hope this helps. :)

I cannot see anything on the screen but if I click for the picture it clicks and take the picture but cannot see anything on the screen. Just black screen with few small icons


Hi there. I think this will work for you. (You may have to go to a really bright room or shine a flashlight on the screen, so you can see, since it is dark right now.)  Go into the menu and navigate to monitor settings. Go to Brightness and there are 5 choices you can make to brighten the screen to your liking. - Let me know if that works for you and give me a vote.

,y DXG 538 digital camera has no flash and pictures in screen


ok, for starters, the 4028x1260 is the resolution, meaning, the picture quality and shape...in computer terms, the number of pixels in the picture...the higher the number the better...usually

anyway, to turn on the flash, push the "Set" button. in the lefthand side of the screen...i think. will be a symbol that changes. the A means automatic, the O with a line through it means no flash, and the others are useless.

to make them brigter, in the menu you should see a thing that says E.V. {somenuber}.{someOTHERnumber}

ie. 0.0, 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0 and it goes to negative 2.0 as well.

the higher the number the brighter the pic

Casio EX-Z60 camera - photos are whitened or brightened


If you enlarge the picture you have just taken, is there same lines running accross the picture?

If so, the shutter magnets are causing interferance and causing the picture to overexpose and have tiny lines running through it.

In Australia the complete lens will need to be replaced as the shutter does not come seperate and this is very expensive.

Sorry for the bad news.
