SOURCE: I am getting a lot pre-flashes before take the photo

In your manual look up page 49 AF illuminator change the setting to off and then you rprblem will go away I have had this camera for ages and couldn't figure heaps out this was so easy to fix yet so hard to find the answer. I am also finding that the photo that I see throught the lense is good and nice colour until I put the shuter button down and the photo changes colour then are you having the same problem?

When i take pictures they show with a pink color? i reset the camera to factory settings but still same pink pics advise?


This FE-340 Olympus is a great camera. Lots of features and usually great results
  • Indoor pictures with flash set on auto WB (white balance) should not be a problem
  • Indoor pictures without flash requires setting the WB to match the light source in the room (incandescent, florescent etc) Outdoor pictures WB on auto generally not a problem
For more help Include a photo with the metadata of the photo from the image data file

Hi. When I use my Olympus SP 570 UZ in an Indoor Party Hall, I get Orange Tinge or Orange Coloured Photographs. Please Help me to avoid this,


This is called "white balance"-- the indoor lights have a bit of a yellowish tint, while sunlight has more of a blue tint.
Try changing the white balance to Auto-- if you get bad results on Auto, try using the Indoor or Incandescent settings. You may have the white balance set on the "outdoor" or "flash" setting.

I have the Olympus e-410 and I cant get the pictures to upload to my PC. I have connected it and have gone into easy print and normally that works. I have even had to turn the camera off and on a few times and then it will kick in but it wont do any of that this time. I cant find the manual and it was my husbands camera before we got married and he only upload once before that. HELP!

this is when the camera doesn't have enough light for auto focus! to suppress it, disable the option "auto pop-up" in the settings menu of the camera. you then might risk unsharp images but strobing won't happen until you manually pop-up the built in flash.

to get rid of the whole thing, you can buy one of the olympus e-system external flashes like fl-36 or fl-50. these bring a red-light for auto focus assistance.
