This is a "histogram" showing you some information about the brightness levels of the photo. You can press the "DISP" button to toggle between three views -- full details(what you are seeing now), limited details, and no details.

How do you delete photos/videos?

launch the Photos app, navigate to the Photos tab on the left until you get to Moments view. Then tap Select at the top-right of the screen, and tap each Select link next to each batch of images you want to delete. Tap the Trash button in the bottom-right corner, confirm that you want to remove the images, and they'll be deleted.
IDGYou can also delete images in batches from the iPhone's Moments screen."But hang on a second!" you might be murmuring in an exclamatory way, "I just launched the Photos app on my phone and there are still pictures there. What's up with that!?"
Ah, that would be your Photo Stream.
"And those photos are still taking up space on my iPhone, right?"
Well. Yes.
"And so we haven't really gotten rid of all the photos on my iPhone, have we?"
No. No we haven't.
Sooo you need to switch off Photo Stream on your iPhone. To do that go to Settings > Photos & Camera. In the resulting screen flick the My Photo Stream switch to Off. This will cause the pictures to disappear from your phone.

Set Date and Time Display to FinePix T410 Camera

The date and time appear in the lower-left corner of the screen, both when taking pictures and when reviewing pictures you've already taken.

The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

let me see if i understand. if you llok at the screen it looks ok, but after you take the picture it will record only a white bright image.....

in some cases you can easily fix this by goining into your camera option and restoring default settings. it is the exposure setting .

if you camera still giving you just black white images the light sensor in the machine ahs gone bad, it needs to be replace.

Pictures are blur


Your pictures are blurry because the camera did not focus properly on the subject.

First, turn on the camera in any picture taking mode (or video mode), then look at the screen or viewfinder. There should be four white corners in the center of the camera display. This is your targeting area.
1. Aim the camera at your subject so this center area is directly on it.

2. Press the shutter button lightly, not all the way down. Wait for a second or two WITHOUT RELEASING YOUR FINGER. If the white corners turn green, keep the finger on the button and press it all the way.

(Once the screen flashes black, a picture is taken and you can release the finger).
If the targeting area turns red and blinks, then the camera has not focused. You can to try to focus again by following step 1 and 2. If a picture is taken when the targeting area is red, then the picture will be blurry.

If there is no targeting area, then you can still focus by aiming the camera at your subject. Now follow step 2. A green box will appear on the subject, then a sharp picture can be taken.
The red arrow that flashes means that the pictures or videos are being written onto the memory card.

Also, try to be steady when taking pictures, because slight hand movement can cause blurry images too.

Page 25 in the DMC-FZ7's english manual will also explain how to focus.

My advice is that you should by a DV cleaning cassette. Put this in the camera and run it for 10 to 20 seconds only. running the cleaning cassette for a long time may damage the head.
good luck!
