To take night photo's you need to use a tripod. this will enable you to take long exposures without the blur. If you use flash it will only illuminate objects near the camera.

My samsung s760 has ahorizontal lines when you shout in a day time but if you shout it it evening the picture is ok.eventhough i put off the flash in day time it is the same result.what can i do?please...


Mary,First check to ensure that your camera is in automatic mode, and not in one of its manual modes. For example, shooting in a night scene mode in daylight could cause these symptoms. But if you are in auto, a stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).
To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

It doesn't take all the pictures at night, i get some, maybe 1 or 2 then it skips and might take 1 more. takes great daytime photos. is there anything that can be done to fix it?


Hi mmcgee6,

You need to check the settings in the camera , as to whether it's selected on night mode or not , when you use the camera at night , and particularly if the light is not as bright as day light.

There should not be any problem with the night shoots from the camera if there is no problem in the day , it's just the settings that needs to be changed to night mode.

Also a good idea would be to set the flash settings on Auto instead of Off , or other settings , this will adjust the camera as per the environment in which you are clicking your pictures.

Hope this helps ....:)

Hi, I'm having some problems with my samsung camera s630. whenever i take pictures in the day time the pictures don't come out clear, but when i take pics in the night they come out really good. Can you...


This is happening due to your wrong settings..
So first you rest your camera to factory defaults... and confirmed that night mode is off for daylight picture...
Take photo on Auto mode... and see the result.... If still not satisfied then camera get serviced...

My olympus FE-240 takes blurry pictures in night mode.


It's you...in night mode the shutter stays open much longer...plenty of time for you to move the camera. Use a tripod.

My camera is a PowerShot A460. It can take pictures but all white


It looks like you took pictures on Manual mode and didn’t set the Exposure Compensation and Shutter speed properly. If you can get good pictures on Auto mode, your camera is ok.

Capturing mode


Probably you are using the M mode or manual mode for taking the pictures. this shouldn't happen in Auto mode. The exposure time is set to maximum and the camera behaves as it shoot during the completely dark environment - trying to stay "open" to absorb as much light as it needed for the picture. If you are trying it during the night you will be more satisfied with the result - 30 seconds of "capturing" on the screen, a tripod and you are goimg to have exellent night shot. I had the same problem, just because I haven'got read the manual for the camera first. My advise is to check in the manual what is written for the "M" mode. Hope that I help.

Shooting modes


The shooting modes are described as follows: PROGRAM AUTO (Factory default setting) Program Auto mode is used for regular photography. The camera automatically makes the settings for natural color balance. Other functions, such as the flash mode and metering, can be adjusted manually. Portrait Portrait mode is suitable for taking a portrait-style picture of a person. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. Landscape Landscape mode is suitable for taking pictures of landscapes and other outdoor scenes. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. Night scene Night scene mode is suitable for shooting pictures in the evening or at night. The camera sets a slower shutter speed than is used in normal shooting. If you take a picture of a street at night in any other mode, the lack of brightness will result in a dark picture with only dots of light showing. In this mode, the true appearance of the street is captured. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. If you use the flash, you can take pictures of both your subject and the night background. Self-portrait Self-portrait mode enables you to take a picture of yourself while holding the camera. Point the lens towards yourself, and the focus will be locked on you. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. The zoom is fixed in the wide position and cannot be changed. QuickTime Movie QuickTime Movie mode lets you record movies. The focus and zoom are locked. If the distance to the subject changes, the focus may be compromised.
