My polaroid pictures are coming out blank?


I assume they are coming out almost completely white. Here are some guesses based on my experience with 4x5 Polaroid film from decades ago. Things may have changed.

First guess: This type of film has small packets of chemicals that are popped open and spread by rollers in the camera. These chemicals develop the film. If the pinch roller's no longer squeeze tightly enough, the film will come out white. Try googling your camera name and rollers to see if others have this problem.

Second guess: Another possibility is the film was not stored properly or expired. Have you tried replacing the film?

Third guess: Not likely, because I expect this camera is fully automatic, but are you able to adjust shutter speed or aperture? The images may be over exposed if shutter speed is slow. Are there mode settings like A, T and M? If so, put the camera into A mode. When you press the button do you hear a fast and immediate click-click, or do you hear a click followed by another click shortly after?

Zoom and aperture problem


What lens do you have on the camera? Many zoom lenses have a variable maximum aperture. This means that the maximum aperture varies depending on the focal length. If you set the lens to its maximum aperture and then zoom, the aperture may change.

Camera exilim ex-s600 will not take pictures outside,pictures turning out white,yet will take pictures inside ok.is this a worthwhile repair


This seems to be a software problem with your camera. Your camera should, if on AUTO mode, automatically expose your photo accurately. Try half pressing the shutter button (used to take pictures) while outside to adjust focus and exposure, then press the button fully to take picture. If your camera cannot adjust to take a properly exposed picture (not bright white), then it is possible that the shutter speed is stuck on a too high speed, outside daytime shutter speed should be fast (1/1000 sec). Or if your shutter speed adjust accurately, it could be the aperture if the aperture is not small enough for daylight shooting. This is likely a software problem. Try adjusting your settings manually and see if the picture turns out!

When taking pictures outside the camera over exposes. Could i have pressed a button that would cause this to happen? when taking pictures indoors the camera takes awsome photos still, but when we go...


Sounds like you set either the aperture to a large small number (large aperture) or the shutter speed to a long value. If this is the case, it should be that in AUTO mode, things work fine, but one of C, M, Av or Tv (custom, manual, aperture priority, shutter priority) modes, the aperture or time are set to something that is good for indoors, but outdoors (where the light is brighter) too much light comes in.

It could also be that the ISO ("film" speed) is set too high for bright light. Again, in AUTO mode, the camera takes care of this setting.

Try each of the shooting modes and see which ones work. If Av is the one that is over-exposed, try making the aperture smaller. If Tv, make the shutter time shorter. If M, make both Aperture smaller and shutter time shorter.

At the time of photo taken in zoom please instruct me actual shutter speed & exposer in which better photo is taken pranab


Pranab, When using a zoom or telephoto lens, it's just like using a telescope - a little bit of movement in your hand makes the image jump around a lot. If you take a picture under these conditions it is often blurry. There are 5 things to improve the image quality: 1. Use the fastest shutter speed possible. 2. Since a fast shutter speed captures less light, you also need a wider aperture (that's the size of adjustable curtain in the lens known as the f-stop, a smaller f-stop number indicates a wider aperture). The wider aperture allows more light in. 3. Use a tripod. This works for telescopes and cameras. 4. Bright available light. On a sunny day, there is lots of light available, so you can use a fast shutter speed and still get enough light. 5a. On film cameras use "fast film". This film is more sensitive, meaning it requires less light so you can use a faster shutter speed. 5b. On some digital cameras there is Image Stabilization. The image is electronically stabilized - this is like using a tripod to hold the image still, while allowing the camera to move around a little bit. I hope you found this helpful good luck Al K

Hi, I have taken over 20 rolls of film so far and haven't had a problem until now. Whenever, I go outside to take pictures (in the daylight), my pictures come out black (last 5 rolls of film) In the same...


I think the aperture is not shutting down to the opening you set it to. In an SLR, the aperture is normally fully open for viewing through the lens. When you press the button, the mirror flips up and the aperture closes to the figure you have set, then the shutter fires. If you have set a daytime aperture and the aperture sticks, you get a wide open aperture and an overexposed shot, but at night, you have set an open or almost open aperture anyway.

It is possible that the shutter is the problem, but the aperture is more likely to go wrong in my experience. It only takes a drop of oil on the blades. There ought to be a button or lever to shut the aperture down for depth of field preview which you could use to test this, or just look in the lens when the shutter fires to see if the aperture closes.

I have a 36 exposure film in the camera with 25 pictures taken and I want to remove the film without taking more photos. How do I rewind?


To rewind the film mid-roll, press the two film rewind buttons simultaneously for one second. The two buttons are marked with a red film symbol, and double as the Auto Exposure Bracketing button to the left of the viewfinder and the Aperture/Exposure Compensation button to the right of the control panel.

The film is completely rewound when a blinking "E" shows in the control panel.

What is the button on the bottom of Olympus Stylus zoom 140


No. You just rewound the film. The pictures you took are safe, but you probably 'lost' the rest of the film you did not shoot.

Digital camera . Konica Dimage G530. Problem Outside in bright light the pictures are all white. Pictures ok inside in low light. Video mode works ok inside and outside.


you need to adjust the exposure for that camera. since having too much light makes the photo all white.

Exposure and Focus Just as with film, a digital camera has to control the amount of light that reaches the sensor. The two components it uses to do this, the aperture and shutter speed, are also present on conventional cameras.
  • Aperture: The size of the opening in the camera. The aperture is automatic in most digital cameras, but some allow manual adjustment to give professionals and hobbyists more control over the final image.
  • Shutter speed: The amount of time that light can pass through the aperture. Unlike film, the light sensor in a digital camera can be reset electronically, so digital cameras have a digital shutter rather than a mechanical shutter.
