Question about Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera

1 Answer

Photo ok in camera but not in newspaper blown up.

Hi
I just bought a Canon EOS 40D. Love the camera. Picture quality is set on the highest setting. Quality L (3888x2592 (382) When viewing the pictures in the camera or in photoshop there fine. When given to the newspaper and blown up in black in white, they are blurred.

Is this a problem with a setting in our camera or is it the newspaper's problem?

Thank You, Suzanne Mika

Preview butto on canon 40d wont showpics on screen


In the menu's you can choose how long you want to view the picture you just took. Settings are off / 2 sec. / 4 sec. / 8 sec. / always on.
I suggest you try everything but off, and it could be exact what you want.
It is the first menu (with the camera pict) fifth row.

You may have set the self timer, which is ordinarily used when you want to get into the picture yourself.

This means you have your camera set on one of the lowest settings for megapixels. Go into the menu and set it for the highest number of megapixels and the highest setting for picture quality.

My Canon 40D LCD monitor when displaying a photo has just started displaying white sections of a picture as alternating black then white. The rest of the photo is fine just the white flashes. Any idea what...


It's possible that your Highlight Alert is enabled. Over-exposed areas of your image will blink to indicate blown-out whites. If you don't like this feature, go to the Menu, under the second blue tab (for playback), look for Highlight Alert and Disable it. When viewing the image on a computer, the blinking will not appear however. It's just to warn you that some parts of the image is so bright that all detail is lost. I enable mine so that I know this and is able to make adjustments on the ground.

Colour representation on Eos 40d


Have you checked your white balance? Having an improper white balance is one of the most common color problems with digital cameras. 
If true color is what you're after, then you need to tell the camera what true white is, too. Try either shooting a grey card, or using an expodisc. For each lighting situation, you properly expose a shot of the grey card, or a blank frame using the expodisc, and then you set your camera to use that image as the white balance image. Now, your camera will see what you see a whole lot better. Keep in mind that the auto white balance is just a best approximation of what the camera thinks it sees. However, in many situations, there is not only one light source. There are reflected light sources, diffused light sources, and direct light sources all over the place — all of them different color temperatures and intensities. The grey card and expo disc help take these all into account. And while it may seem like a lot of trouble to set the white balance all the time, I think it will be well worth it when you (and everyone) else is amazed at the true colors you are capturing.
Happy shooting!
Jeff

If you set the camera to P (program) the flash will not pop up automatically but the camera will still control the shutter speed and aperature settings automatically. Also with the lens you are using you should probably have a tripod which will help you hold the camera more steady.
