Are you saying that part of the picture displayed on the camera screen flashes black? If so this is normal as far as I have read. It shows there is too much light on that part of that image. You can alter it not to show it flashing.

Flash goes every time, even when there is no lightning bolt in the screen (for lack of better terms). Also a few photos turn out blue that were taken indoors.

Tip

My camera has spots in the picture



The spots are caused by the flash being SO close to the lens. Anyobject that can reflect the flash reflects it right back at the camera.
This is an image problem with most point and shoot digitals. Watch forreflective surfaces and stand at an angle to them. Turn on more lightsin the room before using flash. Most indoor pictures start way too dark.
Stand at a slight angle to the image orperson you are photographing - don't shoot straight on. (I kneel downand shoot up - makes a good shot too.)
If you are shooting toward the sun lit side of an image, shield the lens from direct sunlight with your hand (Keep your hand out of the picture!)
A professional photographer has the flash way away from the lens for a reason...

I have a panasonic, Lumix,DMC-FZ50. I like to photograph indoor games, I use a tripod and they still come out blurrry or out of focus.using automatic. I tried Manual but it is very dark.I would like to get...


Unfortunately tripod will not help you with freezing movement. You need to use higher ISO setting or flash light. I know they degrade image quality (each in its own way) but I can give you a small tip how to use flash. Reflected light is softer and has more natural look on pictures. Try to use a small mirror to direct your flash light to a ceiling or wall. Also read about exposure correction in your camera in user manual (as pictures taking this way might be a bit dark).

Photo viewer program stuck on ''initializing''


you might try connecting the keychain first and making sure it turns on upon connecting to your PC via the USB cable.

my problem is the photo viewer software that came with it doesn't find any JPG images to put on the keychain...it crashes everytime i click a folder to browse and i've removed and re-installed it twice now. what a piece of ****.

Very grainy pictures indoors at night


If you can adjust the ISO sensitivity to a lower number then the graininess will be reduced.

However, by reducing the ISO, you will need a slower shutter speed and a larger aperture. A tripod, table or other support may be necessary.

The "noise reduction" setting on the camera can also be adjusted a step up.

Taking pictures at full resolution and fine compression will also help.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Overall, at least try lowering the ISO, and using the flash brighter.

Indoor picture too dark with flash


Hey Jewdeit,
The built in flash on the K100D has guide # of 52 at iso 200 which does fine for close-up photography and as fill flash outdoors, but is not a powerful enough flash for shooting far away subjects indoors. What you probably should do is purchase an external shoe mounted flash such as the AF540FGZ which has a much higher guide number of 148 at iso 100. When shooting with flash if you are using aperture priority or full manual you can also try opening the aperture to let in more light that the flash put out, but doing this might over expose anything in the foreground.

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
