In auto settings mode (inside picts) the pictures are either overexposed using a flash (picture is almost completely white) or completely dark with no flash or auto flash.... I cannot get a consistent picture quality... Is this normal for this camera?? Outside picts are great - inside ones totally suck...

there are advanced color correction modes,
Blue or dark pictures/videos
Keep your shooting distance inside of 2ft to 3ft, depending on
visibility and ambient light.
If you are using only one light, considering adding another light
(dual lights) or/and external flash accessory. The ideal
set-up is a combination of a light plus flash.
Consider purchasing the SeaLife Wide Angle Lens (SL975). The
fisheye lens allows you to get closer to the subject and fit more
into to picture frame.
For SeaLife camera with external light accessory (No external flash):
1) Set the camera's scene mode to Sea mode or Snorkel mode
2) Change camera's PHOTO and VIDEO White Balance
settings to DAYLIGHT.
For SeaLife camera with external light and flash accessories:
1) Set the scene mode to Ext. Flash mode
2) Change the VIDEO White Balance setting to DAYLIGHT.
For other underwater camera brands:
1) Set the Scene mode to "Auto" or "Underwater" scene
mode, as recommended by the camera manufacturer.
2) You may also need to change the White Balance setting to
DAYLIGHT depending on the camera's underwater color
correction or if pictures/video turns out red.
Make sure the ISO is set to the lowest number or even to "auto ISO". The
best way to avoid these lighting problems is to adjust
your aperture settings, your shutter speed and your film speed when
shooting. Additional details about thus sibject could find in the Samsung_S500_Owners_Manual in section about Settings & Mode. Its possible that you are interesnting to check other information, so visit this two sites Fix-Overexposed and this other take-better-photos-in-5-easy-steps. Finally, remote but possible, could be the
symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter, this 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.
You may have the settings wrong. Check in the MENU to see if you have it set to "inside" pics rather than outside. Also the ISO has a lot to do with the exposure. If the iso is set too low outside sunlight pics will be white or overexposed. Try setting ISO on wheel for various options select program mode button and MENU select ISO 120 or 250. These are are pretty general settings. the flash will only engage inside or outside if the light is low ( like evening) I suspect your ISO setting is at a setting that is incompatible with bright sunlight t Also select White Balance and move it to DAYLIGHT
take a few shots inside and out to see if there is an improvement.
Double-check your flash settings. You mentioned the camera is in Auto mode, but the flash has separate settings from the camera's shooting mode. With the camera in shooting mode AUTO check the Flash settings (Auto, Red-Eye Reduction, Fill-In, Off) It may be set to 'fill' causing your photos to be too bright. Also, depending on how close you are to your subject the flash may not be needed. Using the flash when too close to your subject (less then 3 ft.) will cause bright/white photos. Turn the flash OFF if you are taking macro or photos closer then 3ft. If neither of these fix your problem, turn the flash mode OFF, and camera shooting mode to AUTO and in a naturally well lit area, take a photo, if the photo is still too bright, you may have something mechanically wrong with your camera.
otherwise they are not over exposed actually they have CCD HR problem ur CCD is having fault as 1000's have the same fault u will get pink shades in white and then later it will stop working u have to arrange for ccd change go to fuji service centre
Sounds like your camera is in manual mode. Manual mode is where you can change the settings like shutter speed, ISO, the appature size. If the appature is to wide (small number) and the shutter speed is to slow (low number like 1/20) you will have an over exsposed picture. You probobly need to put the camera back into auto mode. You may have switched the modes on accedent. The modes usualy say Auto, Macro, Manual, and movie. These are all the presets or the camera modes on your camera.
If the camera is set right it will take good pictures inside but be white or over exsposed when taking any outside.
Go into the menu and scroll over to the little red camera icon. See if its in manual or auto. Another thing to check is "EV" if its at +6 set it to 0 and try it if you cant find auto mode.
If you're using the forced flash setting, it may be too bright. Try setting the flash to Auto. If you're facing a bright light source, you may need to shoot your picture from a different angle. Use Image Expert to adjust the picture's brightness, as described on page 9-4. Set user mode to Manual and adjust the camera's exposure setting.
