Question about Nikon D70s Digital Camera

1 Answer

Over Exposure I have had my camera for about 2 years.  Just today when I switched on and took a photo outside (sunny/bright day) the photo came out white.  It seems too much light is getting in? Can you help?

Go to the exif file for that photo. You can review the file info in camera using the jog button. It will tell you what the settings were when you snapped the shutter. You failed to mention if any pictures were consequently taken without errors.

X-370S 35mm SLR Camera: what is the best aperture, shutter speed and iso f...


Your camera light meter should tell you, but in case it doesn't work then all you need to remember is the "Sunny 16 Rule". Basically, on a bright day and with the lens aperture set to f16 you set the reciprocal of the film speed.

So with ISO 100 film the reciprocal is 1/100, or 1/100th of a second. Your camera shutter speed dial doesn't have that, but it does have 1/125th which is close enough.

Once you have the exposure set for f16 then if you adjust the aperture you simply adjust the shutter speed to match. So if you decide to set f11 that allows twice as much light onto the film so to compensate you reset the shutter speed to 1/250th of a second to halve the light coming in. As twice the light coming in through the aperture is compensated for by halving the light coming in via the shutter, the exposure remains the same.

Although this works for a sunny day, you just guess based on experience other lighting conditions. So if it's bright but overcast then you can leave things as they are, but if it's dull and overcast allow one extra stop of exposure by opening the aperture by one setting or by doubling the time that the shutter remains open. So from the starting point of f16 at 1/125 (as above), on a dull cloudy day you'd either set f11 OR 1/60. If you set f11 AND 1/60 then you'll be allowing not just twice as much light in but three times as much.

Hope this helps, if so please take a moment to rate my answer. If it's too complicated then please add a comment and I'll re-explain in even simpler terms.

Tip

Get more out of S4000


ISO
Set ISO Setting to FIXED RANGE and set the range to 80-400. The camera produces noise at HIGH ISO setting.
NIGHT SHOTS
Get a small Tripod and you can take wonderful night time shots of city-scapes. Use a tripod and set the camera White Balance to Incandes. Make sure the FLASH is Off Set the Exposure Comp. to -2. Set the self timer and then frame and press the shutter and back away. Some exposures can be 1 second long so a tripod is not optional. Small plastic Joby ones work. If you are holding the camera during the shot it will move with you. A self timer is used to take the photo after you are not touching it.

When you use the flash set the White Balance to Flash (Unless you are outside on a sunny day. then use daylight)

I do NOT recommend using Auto Flash. Set the flash to OFF or turn it to SINGLE BOLT for fill.

When you want to photograph people outside in the sun set the White Balance to Daylight. On sunny days use the Fill Flash (Single Bolt) to fill faces better. Yes good photographers use flash in the direct sun. When cloudy are in shade turn flash off. If the subject has a bright background get close to them and have the flash on.

This camera makes red eye. In most cases when you are taking a photo of people in low light, when the flash supplies most of the light, you will get horrible red eye. You have to edit these later to remove the red eye.

Picture too dark


Do not confuse dark pictures with black pictures.
1. Flash Range
2. Exposure Compensation
3. Monitor Calibration (low monitor brightness)
4. Obstructed or covered flash
5. Obstructed or covered light sensor (only on certain models)
6. Flash not firing

NOTE:
A normal sunny outdoor scene is a good way to test the exposure metering of the camera.

I assume you're talking about pictures taken outside on a sunny day. All cameras are hard to see in bright light.

Canon Powershot S330 Picture Brightness Help!!!


It sounds like the camera exposure system is out of whack and may need to be serviced. You may want to ensure that exposure compensation is set to 0. Check one of your overexposed images with the display in the 'Detailed Display' mode (two lines of information at the bottom of the LCD). If the second item on the top line is not ±0, the exposure compensation is not at its default value. To set, put the camera in M(anual) shooting mode. Press the Exposure/White Balance button until you see a scale along the bottom of the LCD from -2 to +2. Use the left or right button to set it at 0. If the value is already at 0, you will probably need service.

Could be a camera problem but it's possible that your hand or part of a straying finger may be covering the sensor on the front that tells the camera what the exposure is in full auto mode. You'll need to do some test shots making sure there's noting in the way. It could be that the sensor is failing, maybe put the camera into fully manual and take a shot a about 125th of a second at f16 on a bright, sunny day to see if the camera responds with a good image. A good source of information is the manufacturers web site, there may be a firmware download that could fix the problem. Good luck with it.

You are shooting with the exposure bias set too far on the plus side, not familiar with the 550, do You have the user manual? If You look at exif data of posted photos, You will see that many are taken at settings below the midpoint. If You don't have a manual, go to the Olympus website, many manuals are available for download. You may also find the function in the menu based on sunny, cloudy, etc, this is important to set right
