Too bright photos when using the flash

When I am using the flash, the photos are too bright, almost white. Someone else has this problem also I have seen here. I have tried to change exposure time and it is still the same. Does anybody know what the problem is?

Re: Too bright photos when using the flash

Check your manual with regard using the flash and the shutter setting available. You could try to take some of the light out of the situation by holding over the flash folded layers of tissue paper - but you will have to experiment -how see much is enough. Meanwhile do get on the the Fuji Tech Support team.

Pictures that I take come out very white/bright. you cannot tell details. I have changed batteries and have the setting on auto.

Double-check your flash settings. You mentioned the camera is in Auto mode, but the flash has separate settings from the camera's shooting mode. With the camera in shooting mode AUTO check the Flash settings (Auto, Red-Eye Reduction, Fill-In, Off) It may be set to 'fill' causing your photos to be too bright.

Also, depending on how close you are to your subject the flash may not be needed. Using the flash when too close to your subject (less then 3 ft.) will cause bright/white photos. Turn the flash OFF if you are taking macro or photos closer then 3ft.

If neither of these fix your problem, turn the flash mode OFF, and camera shooting mode to AUTO and in a naturally well lit area, take a photo, if the photo is still too bright, you may have something mechanically wrong with your camera.

Photo brightness

Hello Jrmb,
I would like to know what mode are you clicking these photos in.. because overexposure is due to either slow shutter speeds or large aperture. Try setting the camre mode according to the surrounding light conditions.. for example, no need of flash when you are clicking pictures in broad day light, instead of setting the camera on Auto mode, try using Portrait mode for short distance (5 to 6 meters away) objects etc..
Let me know if that fixes the issue.

And important .. Do not forget to rate the solution :)

Thanks and Regards,

Bright flash on caplio R3 digital camera

YES YES YES YES YES YES YES there is a solution if that is the r3 thing. There is a menu button and the menu button has four arrows around it right??? Yeah, well, press the arrow pointing west to change the flash's power. And if that doesnt work just press the up button instead and that should bring you to a menu or something where you can change what kind of picture the camera will take. At least, thats what i think...

Photos are too bright, almost white....

camera makers would like to use flash lights as bright as the sun, so the flash is fine. the problem lies in the exposure time. continue trying different exposure settings. most makers provide these as pre-programmed settings while some offer manual fine tuning.

Pictures look like a bright light has been turned on.

Hello, posted by clowrie When I take a photo (doesnt matter if I am nusing flash or not) the photo is all white washed and there are fine lines along the entire picture. Does any one have any suggestions for what may be the issue? Comment by clowrie, Because of your help I was able to findout that Sony is aware of the CCD problem and is reparing the problem for free. Thanks so much for the help.
