Question about Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Overexposure My Nikon coolpix 5700 has been fine for 2 years. Suddenly all the pitures that I am taken are overexposed. Using the Compensation function to counter balance it does a reasonable job but it is not as good as it was. Any ideas?

Re: Overexposure

CoolPix 5700's have a common image sensor failure. Check with Nikon for recalls, this may be the cause of your issue. Alternatively the shutter may be stuck open, causing too much light to reach the sensor and causing over exposure as well as lines across the image. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

Hi Andrew - look for a "exposure compensation" control on your camera. It may be buried in a menu; or an easily operated dedicated button on the camera body itself. You didn't include the model camera you have - so I couldn't look it up. Try googling: "exposure compensation model" where model is the model number of your camera.

Good luck!

When taking pictures in the sunlight or daytime the image is too bright



Please browse above manual on how to set your images. This will fall on page 32 - Overexposure Compensation. This will also guide you on how to adjust your setting accordingly.

If problem persist, suggest to contact nearest authorized dealer.

Thank you.

Overexposure for pix seems okcamera 2 yrs old casio EX-S880

Check your "exposure compensation" setting. It should be at "0". You can set it lower if your pics are still overexposed and see if you can find a setting you like.

I bought the Nikon Coolpix about two years ago. Suddenly all the pictures taken are overexposed. What do I do?

Two things to check...ISO (should be auto ISO or a setting between 100-400) and Exposure Compensation (should be set to "0")

Nikon Coolpix 5700 Over-exposure of image whilst zooming in brigh

I now have the exact same issue. When not zoomed or fully zoomed the exposure is correct, however when partially zoomed the aperture does not engage and stays fully open. So basically I cannot really use the zoom or the picture is over exposed. Note - actually about 2/3 mechanical zoom and on works, so I can use a bit of the zoom.
