Sounds as if you have changed the record mode to RAW. You need to go back and change the rec mode to something other than RAW and the files will go back to JPG files. Page 59 and 60 of your user manual explains how to change the record mode to something other than RAW.

Pictures are over exposed how can it be rectified


If you are using a camera that can save RAW format, you can later post processes it on your computer with software like Lightroom or probably software that came with you camera.
Load the RAW image and adjust the exposure to your liking, then save the image as a JPEG.
Some software will even let you change JPEG files by adjusting brightness, sharpness, etc.
If you overexposed in a specific are, you can use layers to change it in specific areas - you can use the expensive Photoshop or free Gimp to do that.

My Nion3100 is saving pictures into "NEF" format instead of "JPEG. Don't know how it got switched or how to switch t back. Can I re-format the pic on my SD card so I can work with them on the computer


Open the "Shooting Menu" by pressing the Menu button. Press the right Multi-selector and then scroll up or down to "Image Quality". Press the right Multi-selector and you will see the various choices for JPEG and NEF combinations and quality, make your selection by scrolling up or down and pressing "OK".
As for converting you NEF photos to JPEG; you can easily do that in one of several ways on your computer. If you are using Lightroom or Photoshop, all you have to do is open your pictures, select "Save As" and use the pull-down menu to select JPEG and save. If you do not have that program, there are several conversion programs available on the Web; manu for free. I use a program called BatchConverter on my Mac. There are similar programs of PCs.

I bought a camera from a friend, Olympus e-420. but when i started to use it, i always got dark picture even the flash is already switched on. i'm thinking the built-in flash is delayed, do i have way to...


There are multiple reazons for the picture to look dark, a very short exposure, or a low flash intensity.
Try changing the flash intensity, this is done by pressing the Exposure compensation and flash button simultaneously.
Or playing with the exposure settings to see if there is any difference.
Concerning the ORF file format, this is this camera's RAW format, it's usefull to proffesionals, but for the common user, JPEG is the best option. As far as I know, this camera records both formats simultaneously.
For future refferences, here is the user manual : http://www.olympusamerica.com/files/oima_cckb/E-420_Instruction_Manual_EN.pdf

A list and defintion of the file types raw b, raw, fine, norm and basic


The D3000 can store still images in two different formats. JPEG is a standard format, recognized by just about every image viewer and image manipulation program in the world. RAW is actually NEF (Nikon Electronic Format), a Nikon-proprietary format which incorporates almost all of the data captured by the sensor, without the processing of JPEG. JPEG files have the color balance, sharpening, contrast, and all the other camera settings done on the picture. With RAW files, you can change any or all of them and produce new JPEGs. In this respect the RAW file is similar to the original negative you get from processed film, while the JPEG file is like the final print. RAW files need special software for viewing and editing.

All JPEG files are compressed to save space. FINE, NORM, and BASIC represent different levels of compression. FINE does the least compression and takes up the most space, BASIC does the most compression and takes up the least space. Compression always loses some quality, so in general the less the compression the better the quality.

RAW+B simply stores each of your pictures as a RAW file and a BASIC JPEG file.

Having said all that, you should use only RAW or FINE settings. You didn't buy a SLR only to throw away picture quality, did you?

Canon g9 camera doesnt work in raw only jpeg


Go to the menu for the camera and look for "SAVE". you should have the choice in which format to save the pictures. Select "RAW" and then exit the menu. The camera should now save in RAW format. Some one or something probably switched the setting (such as reset camera).

Only jpeg on raw+jpeg


This is strange. Is the camera putting the Raw (CR2) files in a different directory somewhere?

Try reading the disk in a reader rather than plugging the camera into the computer, and explore the disk.

If it's really not recording RAWs then I'd call Canon... They're usually very good indeed with photography.

According to the manual, you cannot change the file type, as it only can save images in JPEG or RAW format.

You can, however save the images in RAW format, and convert them with the supplied software.

Please refer to page 80 of the user guide.

If you don't have the manual, you can download / view it here:
