Question about Nikon D40x Digital Camera

1 Answer

Overexposure in AV mode

When I use Nikon D40x in AV mode it is overexposing - seriously. As it is I cannot use the AV mode which I prefer for outdoor shoots. Do I need to have it repaired? I have tried using the reset option - no change.

When viewing pictures on camera why are the white areas of pictures blinking


Hello,

If this is the same as my Nikon this is the overexposed highlight display option.
This shows areas of the photograph that are overexposed slightly.

On my Nikon I use the up and down arrows on the back to cycle the LCD display options.
Stop when you get a display that does not flash.

Nikon D100 program mode overexposure


Inside the lens mount is the stop down lever. As you look at the camera, it is at 9 O'clock. Move it a couple of times up and down. It is probably stuck.

I have a Z612 which will seems to overexpose outdoor sunlight pictures. Video is ok, indoor flach pics ok. I think the problem was caused checked luggage being slammed around. Any ideas?


Many cameras have an exposure adjustment of increasing/decreasing amount of exposure (usually marked as -/+) Yours is probable set with to much overexposure. This is a setting you can change.

Optio S5I photo's outdoor are overexposed


Your lens shutter is not closing, causing the overexposure. Your lens will need to be replaced or rebuilt. Sorry.

All white pic is shown on LCD when used in Manual Mode with delayed shutter timer


You are massively overexposing the picture. Manual mode means you have to set the exposure manually. You need to adjust the settings so that the light meter reads somewhere around the zero mark.

M mode is most useful for flash photography where you want a certain level of ambient illumination in the picture as well.

If you want some control over the camera but don't want to worry about exposure too much, use A and S modes. The manual will explain all of these modes.

Incorrect metering


it may be a problem with the camera, but you should be using the manual modes....they are much more accurate. if you are worried about it being a defect issue, then send it in.....

I have one also, and have found it to be a bit slow on the metering side on the pre-programed modes.....

LCD screen flashes


There is nothing wrong with your camera - It is doing what it is meant to do!

The purpose of the flashing areas is to drawn your attention to parts of the image that are over-exposed. In an ideal world nothing would ever be overexposed, but if the image has both very dark and very bright areas, the camera cannot capture both - something has to give! The flashing areas are just to let you know.

It's covered on page 52 of the manual.
