Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, similar problem comes only at night/indoor with flash. I noticed that the "spots" would not appear on the image if the camera has been on for a while before the shoot was taken. It is turned on and then shoot with flash, there would be spots; on the other hand, it it was turned on then.....shoot, no spots.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Can you help me with the right settings to take great photos in n school hall for example with bad lighting took some photos but all were so dark even with the flash on please i have a fijifilm s2980


First, you need to turn the flash off. Unless you're up on the stage, you're going to be too far away for the flash to do any good.

Set the ISO as high as you can. This will incur digital noise, but usually a noisy photo is better than no photo. Use the Sports setting to get the shutter speed as fast as possible. Even so the shutter speed will be slow so you need to hold the camera steady. If you can't use a tripod, brace the camera against a wall or on the back of a chair or some other such thing.

Even with the above, don't set your hopes too high. Compact and bridge cameras with their smaller sensors will have more problems with low light than digital SLRs with their larger sensors. It's simply physics: smaller sensors gather less light than larger sensors.

Can;t get any pictures at night


hi there,

the camera needs enough light from the environment to produce good picture
in your case, have you used built in flash to support you while taking photos?
or if you don`t want to use flash, you need a tripod to ensure the camera position won`t shake

setting i usually use while taking a picture at night is ISO 100, f 22 and manual focus mode

thanks

My daughter can't take pictures outside as the flash goes off and it just gives a white picture as it's too bright, what can I do?


1. You could try pressing the reset button. 2. You could press the "delete" button to change the flash mode when you first turn the camera on. 3.=Please check your flash setting to make sure that you don’t have the camera on forced flash mode (indicated by the lightning bolt with the plus sign in the upper right corner).
Using this setting in strong lighting conditions would result in a picture with too much
light.

4. If all else fails, you can call 1-800-521-2010

On my Pentax cameras, if I don't flip up the flash, it doesn't go off. Does your camera work differently? In low light, I have success with setting the ISO to 800 and using a monopod to steady the camera. I set the exposure to "spot" so I can take a reading on the subject and not the background and once I get a reading, I lock it in. I set the white balance to tungsten lighting. I also fire off a few test shots to double-check the settings.

Hi, My Nikon D80 is now kaing over exposed


This can happen if you have ISO control set to Auto and have spot metering selected, especially if it's set to spot shadow or spot highlight. Over exposure probably means it's set to spot shadow metering.

With spot metering the camera measures exposure from just a very small point in the scene, and so slight camera movements will cause the metering spot to wander onto different exposure settings very easily. If the camera is either set to use restricted apertures or shutter speeds due to program or lens limitations then it will compensate by adjusting the ISO settings instead

Never use auto ISO, just choose what you need for the conditions rather than using the camera's best (& usually poor) guess. Alsonever use spot metering unless you know why you're using it. The default multi-pattern metering is extremely accurate for most situations.

Please check the camera settings based on what I've said, if it fixes your problem then please rate my answer. If not then please add further details of which lenses and camera settings you're using and I'll try to help you further.

DSC-H7 camera, getting red eye or white eye spots


First, here is why they are red or white spots:

The red is the reflection of your flash on the retinas of your subjects. The white are generally animal eyes reflecting back.

You will notice this on flash shots only and mostly when you use the zoom. The zoom uses a "narrow" field of view so the light that reflects back is "direct", instrad of at an angle.

The fix: Change the ISO setting (it is set too high). It is probably near the maximum sensitivity (3200?)... set it to 400 or so and try that for a while. 800 is probably the best general setting, but try 400 first.

Try not to use the flash unless you really have to, but only if the subject is less than 12 feet away. If no people are in the picture, you may use the flash for subjects greater than 12 feet.

this should work for you...

If you have another lens, switch it and take some shots of the sky. If the spot is gone, it probably was the lens that needs cleaning/servicing. However, it's more likely that there's dirt on your CCD. On your camera's menu, select mirror lockup/clean CCD (I can't remember the exact terminology but you get the idea).

After you select that, the mirror will stay up. Remove the lens and you'll see that the CCD is now exposed. Use a blower (don't use your mouth to blow as you will end up with spit in the camera) to clear out any dust/debris on the CCD. Don't touch the CCD.

Turn off the camera and you'll hear the mirror go back down. Re-attach your lens and try some shots.

Spot on photos from a canon 350d


Spots
If you see bright circles or spots on photos taken with flash, and the lens appears to be clean, then this is probably caused by particles (dust, pollen, etc) in the air.

See:
http://home.fujifilm.com/products/digital/shooting/flash.html
http://webpages.charter.net/bbiggers/DCExperiments/html/body_spots_.html 
http://www.fratkin.com/d320l/spots.html

There's also an interesting thread on the CANON DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY FORUM at <http://photography-on-the.net/forum/viewtopic.php?TopicID=2912> 

And an explanation of sorts at <http://www.fujifilmsupport.com/faq/tech/spot/spot.htm> 

I really don't know if a slave flash would help, because I assume the A40 flash would still be operating, but if you could borrow one it might be worth a try. 

Might be a wild goose chase, but you could try changing some small thing, just in case ... 
... like trying a different flash mode - slow synch for example?
... or different picture modes - perhaps snapshot or infinity?
... or changing from AUTO to Program, or from Program to Manual, etc?

Otherwise it's probably a case of waiting for most of the dust to settle, taking more than one photo, or just trying to do without flash whenever possible in that sort of situation ... 

Another suggestion I just came across is to use a Negative Ion Generator - used to purify air by precipitating out the particles. Don't know how well it would work - probably not very well if folk keep moving around - and sounds expensive, so maybe not worth buying one - but if dust is a regular problem, and you just happen to know someone that has one ...

Spots on image when using built-in Speedlight flash


As is common in many compact digital cameras where the built-in flash is very close to the lens strange reflections can appear in images under certain conditions. Particulate matter in the air in front of the lens (between the camera and subject) such as water vapor (as in a cloudy day), smoke, dust or other items can reflect light directly into the lens causing neutral colored white/grey semi-transparent spots to appear in the image. In extreme examples there may be many of these spots in an image or there may be only one per image. Also, since these spots are completely random they will move or disappear from image to image. For example, if two images are shot consecutively with the same camera settings one image may have spots while the other is clean. To avoid these spots: When possible, avoid photographing in smoky, dust, or cloudy areas Do not use the camera's flash in locations such as above Use an external Speedlight flash if a flash is needed Review images on the camera and re-shoot if spots are visible Cleaning the lens will not have an effect on these spots, as the particles that cause this are not on the lens itself.
