Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F717 Digital Camera

4 Answers

Taking pictures My son turned my camera on night shot to take a picture of an armadillo in our backyard during this morning. Since then, my camera has been messed up. The pictures are all out of color and looks like the digital noise all over it and looking through the view, you can't see what you are looking at. Looks like I am looking at a histogram or something like that. I don't know all the camera terms. Sorry. But I love my camera and hope that I can get this fixed. I have reset it two times and taken the battery out hoping this would help but it didn't. Can my camera be fixed? Any help is greatly appreciated. Pam Hance

Did you or your son returned the setting back to normal mode? If it istill in night mode, the pictures will be washed out or the color will be different.

The Lens Block assy costs US$180.00 and If you can get a good engineer he can replace only the CCD with the mounted circuit board. The CCD assembly costs US$102.00 and I have the STOCKS

Taking pictures in the morning produce very bright pictures buts normal during the night


My guess s, you did put your camera in Best Shot BS mode, and selected night shot. Try putting your camera back in Automatic mode and only select BS, when you know why you should select a special mode.

Night Pictures


make this test .God bless you

When troubleshooting problems with your photographs, you need to be able to distinguish between problems created by the camera and problems created by the, ahem, photographer. Some things, like a finger over half of the shot or a totally out of focus picture of your own feet are not camera malfunctions. Fortunately, most of what appear to be "malfunctions" are things you can correct through settings. Blurry pictures usually result in pressing the shutter button down before the autofocus kicks in; half-tap the shutter to bring the camera into focus then press it all the way down to take a clear shot. Grainy photos are the result of a high ISO value and low light; use a tripod or, if necessary, the flash when taking pictures in low light. Different makes and models have different ways to warn you that the light is low: some display a shaking hand icon, others a red light. Look for this and adjust photo settings.

When taking pictures at night, i find that its not that sharp and clear. that goes for the video shots as well. how do i rectify this problem. changing the modes doesn't very much. shots during the day is...


Night shots without flash will cause your camera to use a slower shutter speed. This can cause camera shake. To avoid this, put your camera on a tripod. Also, you can raise the ISO to a higher setting...however, too high and you'll get more digital noise in the picture.

Low light wont turn off!!!


number1 be sure that you,re using energizer lithium batteries only.they,re the best.2 because these cameras have such a small flash and its placed in the front of the camera instead of the top,they,re not really made for night shots.but from 3-5ft you should get great pics at very low light.just put it on auto,and ignore the low light message,press down and hold for 2seconds then release.you should get great pictures this way.good luck,hope i helped

Capturing mode


Probably you are using the M mode or manual mode for taking the pictures. this shouldn't happen in Auto mode. The exposure time is set to maximum and the camera behaves as it shoot during the completely dark environment - trying to stay "open" to absorb as much light as it needed for the picture. If you are trying it during the night you will be more satisfied with the result - 30 seconds of "capturing" on the screen, a tripod and you are goimg to have exellent night shot. I had the same problem, just because I haven'got read the manual for the camera first. My advise is to check in the manual what is written for the "M" mode. Hope that I help.
