Question about Apex Digital 4330z Digital Camera

Saturation of unrealistic color

I have a problem that has developed and ruined many photo ops. For some reason many pictures have color over satuation, (greens, reds and blues) making it look unnatural. I first noticed the problem about 6 months ago when some of the pictures blue offset from the pictures. Now some of the pictures show green in sunlight. I've tried resetting the white balance, but nothing seems to help.

Re: saturation of unrealistic color

It is definite CCD chip problem. If you are within warranty period, send it back quick. They probably replace with other unit because the parts are not available for the product. Good luck.

How do I take black and white photos with the Fuji s9400w

Go to the main menu and look for Finepix Color, it should be page 80 if you have the original manual? Once you find Finepix Color look for a little camera icon with the letter B on it, click on that and you should now have Black and White photos. The other 2 icons should be STD for standard and C for saturated color in your photos.

Pictures appear 6 x 4 when developed on my Canon Selphy DS810. How can I change them to be developed 4 x 6 instead. I have pictures that have heads chopped off when developed 6 x 4. If I can change them...

What program are you using when you "develop" these pictures. I would recommend paint shop pro for all your photo/image editing needs. Once I have more information I can assist you further so please don't reject my help.

1. The batteries may need replacement. Somedigital cameras continue to function when their battery power is low, but produce grainy photos with incorrect coloration. Make sure you aren't using Ni-Cd rechargeable batteries, which are generally not recommended for cameras.
2. For the best picture quality, make sure the camera is set to its highest resolution. This may have been adjusted by accident. The process for doing this varies greatly among different digital cameras. Keep in mind that fewer photos will fit in the camera's memory and it will probably take longer to transfer them to the computer, at a higher resolution.
3. Digital
photography tends to be more prone to blurring (caused by slight movement of the camera while the photo is taken) than 35mm film, especially with very small or lightweight digital cameras. To remedy this, try using a tripod and/or the camera's timer, if it has one. Adjust the camera's shutter speed if possible.
4. If colors are too pale, using an image editing/viewing program (such as PictureWorks MediaCenter) to increase the Saturation level may be helpful. If the camera has produced colors which are entirely wrong (everything is in shades of black and purple, for example), you can turn the saturation all the way down so that it becomes a black & white photo.
5. The lens may need cleaning. Make sure you use a cleaning material which will not scratch the lens. If possible, refer to its manual for specific cleaning instructions

Very little colour in the photos

Yes, the soft color saturation and soft focus are major shortcomings of the SP800UZ. On previous SP series camera one could adjust both the color saturation and sharpness before taking a photo.

How can i take black and white photos with this camera?

You can't. The FE-280 always captures in color. You can convert to black&white using just about any photo editing program on the computer, and this is the recommended procedure, as you have more control over saturation, brightness, etc. And, in the event a UFO lands and Bigfoot steps out of it, you'll have color pictures to sell :-)

Takes perfect video, photos over saturated?

Advanced manual:

I didn't read anything about the color being adjustable at the camera level, but through software the 'Olympus Master' software should be able to correct for the wrong hue.

But, this is not a good method in my opinion. It should automatically look realistic when the auto mode is chosen to take pictures.

I would return the camera to exchange it for another of the same model, if you wish, before 7/30/2010.

I am a surgeon when I take pictures of muscle or bloody objects the red color seems to melt and the red is overly saturated and all sharpness and definition to the photo is lost usually taken with a...

The Fuji S2 sensor is noted for this red sensitivity. Here's a few different approaches to getting the shot with the S2, all of which require some experimentation.

1. Set the "Color" and "Tone" Function options to "ORG". Underexpose the shot. Progressively change the exposure compensation downward until when checking the histogram, the red channel does not show saturation at the high end. Advantages: this is the simplest approach to getting the picture. Disadvantages: the S2 already had a fairly limited dynamic range, and this will make things worse for the parts of the photo that are not red. For the surgical setting and use of a ringflash, this may not be much of a disadvantage, since a lot of the stuff of interest will be red, and ringflash illumination generally is of lower contrast than directional lighting.

2. Set the "Color" and "Tone" Function options to "ORG". Use a custom white balance. The idea here is to have the camera adjust the red channel sensitivity itself, and leave the blue and green channels alone. To do this, start with several sheets of white paper and a red or pink marker or highlighter. Scribble with the marker across a sheet, then use that to set a custom white balance. Take a test shot of the red stuff that has been problematic, and see whether the histogram for the red channel shows that there is no saturation at the high end. Repeat this with progressively more red or pink on each sheet used to set the custom white balance until you find the custom white balance that takes enough of the edge off the red channel response. Alternative: I just tried out making a gradient across an 8.5x11" sheet of paper going from white to about 30% red saturation. I can set more or less red adjustment in a custom white balance just by pointing the camera at different parts of the page. This seems to work OK for me. Advantage: can allow the full dynamic range of the sensor to be used. Disadvantages: the experimentation period is likely to take a while to get the best results, and the final images are unlikely to look completely natural.

3. Set the "Color" Function option to "B/W". Use a green or cyan filter on the lens to cut the amount that the red color channel contributes to the final image. Advantages: this is fairly simple as an approach. A similar post-processing technique can be applied to the photos that you already have, by nulling out the red channel contribution and desaturating the blue and green channels to produce a grayscale image. Disadvantages: you lose the color information entirely. Since much of what you want information about is colored red anyway, the organs are likely to appear quite dark when only taking the blue and green channel contributions to the image.

Re-Sized Photos are Grainy


This camera takes pictures with a Ppi of 72. That is why the pictures look huge on the screen. To get good quality prints you need to have at least 200 ppi, or even better, 300 ppi.

Or, the contrast of the pictures may be to low. I have an FZ7 too, and I always tweak the contrast and color saturation before outputting.
1. images straight from the FZ7 are generally low in contrast.

2. Pictures that are low in contrast might not look too bad on screen, but when they are printed they will look slightly greyish.

3. Low ppi pictures look fuzzy in print.

Maybe you can post a sample original picture??

Turning off flash

here is the link for the user manual if you need it;§iontype=Support towards the bottom left of page 2 is all the info you need i think. If for any reason this doesn't work then post again for a fix, in emergency you can stick a few pieces of black pvc electrical tape over the flash - any glue left afterwards will come off with cotton wool and a little cleaning alcohol/rubbing alcohol (dont saturate it). Hope this helps :)
