Sounds like your lens shutter is not closing. This results in very bright pictures(overexposure). I suppose it could be a shutter speed setting. Look around in the camera setup menu for a "camera reset" or "initialize" command.

When I take pictures I get too much brightness with sunlight in the background. How do i fix this?


Are you speaking about the sun back lighting the subject? If so there are numerous ways to eliminate that or greatly reduce it.
  • Move the subject so the light is not behind them
  • If that is not possible then increase your shutter speed to 200 then add TTL flash. From there you could change the flash to Manual to lower the flash output.
  • Take the camera off Auto or P put it on M then experiment
There are many ways to do this, keep experimenting.

Can't see subject in bright light


Unfortunately, LCDs are reflective. Usually, there is a way in the camera menu to adjust LCD brightness - try to set it higher. You can also try to cover direct sunlight with your hands while shooting - not always easy to do...

Why are my pictures so blurry.. HELP PLEASE!!


Hi Lindsay Davi,

First, make sure you have the file size set to the highest size and highest quality. Small file size and low quality settings produce small files with pixelization.

Second, no camera performs as well in low light as it does in bright light. It sounds like you are new to photography, so you should start out by shooting in bright light - outdoors in the sun. Once you know how to take good photos in the sun, then you can try taking photos when it is overcast, or in bright shade (on a sunny day but outside of the direct sunlight). As you develop more experience in taking photos you can try more difficult lighting situations such as indoors.

Flash lighting is difficult because the light "falls off" quickly as the distance from the flash to the subject increases. The camera's flash tries to put out enough light to illuminate both the subject closest to the camera and to also try to light the background, but this is often impossible. So the subject is too bright, and the background remains dark. If your subject is further away, the lighting evens out some. If your subject is close to the background (e.g. standing in front of a light colored wall) the camera will get the flash exposure set to a better value and the photos will come out better.

It would also help to get a book on basic photography.

Flaw on LCD monitor


This is normal. It may be distracting, but what it is is light. If you notice, it happens when there are bright spots, lights, reflections. These distortions will show up in video so try to avoid aiming at bright things while in video mode. Another type of flicker will happen mostly in florescent light.

Before CCD image sensors, video camera used tubes and aiming them at the sun or bright objects would burn the tubes permanently so cameras have come a long way, but by the nature of cameras being devices that record light, it is hard to eliminate that effect altogether (similar to red eye...just can't be a perfect science due to human nature of having blood vessels in the back of their eyes that when bright light is shined into them, their pupils open and the red color is reflected and shows up as red eye...this is best fixed in a photo editing program. It is hard to totally prevent, but changing angles and not shooting directly head on at subject helps). But I digress...

If it is really distracting for you, here is the one thing I found helpful; recompose the shot slightly by moving yourself, the camera, the angle (doesn't have to be dramatically different, but try to have the sun or light source behind the camera). As you move around, continue to push the shutter halfway down (each time not continuously) to bring subject into focus (getting your green box or boxes that indicate proper focus). Sometimes the lines will disappear if you change your shot even very slightly.

Hope this Helps!

Pink tint when shhoting in bright sunlight


Sane problem with C713, the view screen is dark and gives focus warning, then the pics come out with a pink tint. I believe it is the sensor or shutter problem. Can't get any solutions either.

Taking outdoor pics of people when its sunny.


As cameras become more and more automatic, it is harder for thier owners to be 'photographers'. I was trained as a photographer many many years ago on large format, film cameras with no meters and digital was something for the science fiction books. I rarely put any of my digital SLRs in one of the automatic mode.
With your SD600, you have very little control that you can use to overcome this issue. but you DO have some...

First trick is to manually turn your flash on, even in bright sun when shooting outdoors, (this will do two things, turn on the flash which will provide some fill light on the faces of your subjects to reduce the range between the darkest and lightest areas on your people subjects; and it will change the length of time that the shutter stays open to compensate for the slowness of the flash. So you are puttting more light on thier faces and allowing light to pass thru the lens for a longer duration.)

Second, wear a white shirt/blouse. your subjects are in bright sunlight, but the faces are dark - tells me the sun is behind them and in front of you. Thus a white shirt will reflect light and you become a reflector of sorts (this is a short range trick only) Be mindful of the color of your shirts here, color also reflects and may cause their skin tones to become slightly 'off'.

Also try to get your subjects to step into a shady area so that there is not such a high range difference between the brightly lit areas and shadows on them, some cameras, yours included can only do so much -

Look at it this way, I can ask you to someone to swallow a grape in one bite, maybe something the size of a lemon is possible, but you cannot take an entire potatoe into your mouth at one time. In the same way, your camera can only take in a given 'range' of values (intensity) from the darkest to lightest before you exceed it's ability. anything brighter than a given level is simply blown out and anything darker than a given value simply records as black or dark with little or no detail.

This is why a lower pixel count SLR takes better pictures than a high pixel compact camera. Most folks only read the pixel count and go 'ooh ah' - because that is how cameras are marketed. (lots of points recording lower quality range vs fewer points recording higher quality range)

Find ways to stay within the range that your camera can accept. add light to the low end as in tips one and two or reduce the high end, as in tip 3)

Let me know how it works out...

Blurry and Bright white on subject face


This could be a CCD fault or possibly Lens damage. Not I would think something amenable to a sensible repair price- check Olympus first though.

Using Flash Outdoors


For portraits when the sun is high, a fill-flash is certainly appropriate. Had you not used your flash on this, the sun would have cast long shaddows under her eyes and nose and chin, which can be very unflattering. I like the image you captured! One other option for you, when you have control over your subject and the shooting conditions, is to move your subject to a shady spot. Here the lighting is not so harsh and more of the facial features are seen. This adds character and softens the overall look of your portrait. But even in these shady situations, it's not a bad idea to take a few using the fill flash too, bracketing your shots this way will increase the likelihood that you get a "keeper."

Why are there vertical lines or bars on the monitor screen when I record a movie?


Recording a movie of a subject that is brightly lit by the sun or some other very bright light source can cause vertical lines or bars to appear in the image during playback. This is due to a CCD phenomenon called "smearing." Note that lines or bars appear in movie images only, but not in snapshots. Smearing does not indicate malfunction of the camera.
