Pictures are too bright when shooting outdoors in sunlight
The camera has suddenly started taking outdoor pictures poorly- they are very bright. Switching from manual to automatic mode makes no difference- still too bright, only a few faint images of dark objects in the view are visible. I thought it might be a stuck iris but in movie mode everything looks fine... so this would indicate that maybe the iris is OK.
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated
Re: Pictures are too bright when shooting outdoors in...
Have you tried changing your settings manually to outdoor? Or adjusted the aperture? You can usually find the aperture settings under the menu button. If not, try adjusting to outdoor conditions and disabling flash. And also, lower your white balance a good bit.

You must take pictures gently. Blur picture may occur if you move during capturing a picture. Or your hand move too fast after taking a picture. Try to stay still for two or three second after push the capture button. Blur picture when shooting outdoor can be caused by too much light. Don't forget to set your camera in outdoor or panorama mode, and turn of the flash light if you think its too bright.
There is a known "bug" in the earlier S1000 models. You would benefit from a firmware upgrade which is available as a download from Fuji's website. The Canadian site is www.fujifilm.ca . Just look for support and firmware downloads. You can find out there which firmware version is in your camera, and the upgrades, with what they correct.
I think your ISO setting is very high or is in default. Please shift it 100 whent you thaking outdoor snaps in daylight or normal indoor light. It will help you to produce a better photograph. Best wishes.
this problem may happen due to sticky shutters. when a camera is left non operative for a long time sometimes the the shutter gets stuck due to some sticks substance between the blades. BUT you specified thet it's not taking OUTDOOR PICTURES that means that it is working fine indoors ??? That's confusing..
learning to use light metering correctly can have its challenge. the manual will guide you on how to set up to read light from the subject. spot metering a dark area will cause general overexposure, or a washed out look. spot metering a bright area will cause a dark image. if you are on spot meter and shoot two people standing together against a bright lit background, your meter will see between them if they are centered, and read all that bright background, setting the camera to a less sensitive combination of aperture / shutter speed, resulting in a dark image. use field averaging meter setting and be sure you are metering the subject and not the background. try shooting a wall that is fairly clear of other colors and uniform it light hitting it, you should have a correctly exposed image. since it works in other modes (at least 1, anyway) then it is unlikely you have an exposure compensation issue. that is the only other non defect issue that would cause your problem. once you confirm that you have these settings correct and still get a dark image, its time to have it serviced. good luck mark
The shutter is stuck. The electronic "noise" created by the solenoid trying to move the shutter blades causes the lines on your pictures. The bright outdoor pictures is due to the fact that the shutter is jammed open.
You can try tapping the camera on the sides and bottom. This may jar the baldes loose. Failing that, you will have to find a shop that can obtain a replacement lens assembly for your camera.
