A simple solution is to wrap a coffee filter around the flash. This can help to diffuse the brightness and can often lead to a nice, softer effect on subjects.

Dark Pictures


try reseting the camera back to default settings, there should be a function for that in the menus or a small reset hole somewhere in the camera.

Jvc 27'' TV is too dark


There are two small holes on the rear side through which you can adjust focus and screen. Use a flash light and locate the two adjustable slots inside the holes. This part carries high voltage. Do not use a metal screwdriver to adjust. Put the TV facing a mirror so you can see how it works. Do not turn more than 1/8th of a turn. The focus control makes picture sharp or fuzzy. Screen control could change brightness. While watching the picture in the mirror, slightly adjust the screen control. Do not turn too much. If it doesn't work, then call a JVC authorized repair center.

When I take indoor pictures, the images have become progressivley darker and I have to adjust the white balance to +2 and the flash to almost plus 2 just to get a picture where it used to take great...


Make sure your battery is fully charged. If the battery is not fully charged your flash may not fire at the brightness you need to take a well exposed photo. Also, check your ISO settings. Try taking photos at a higher ISO when the subject is in a dark area. Experiment with the ISO. Good Luck!

White screen when taking pictures in daylight


Go to the menu screen for LCD contrast and adjust, it sounds like it is to high. Kinda like a back light for a plasma screen.

I think my flash is too bright?


Make sure that the exposure compensation is at zero. If that does not work, make sure that the flash is on automatic brightness. Check the manual if you do not know how to do either one of these.

Canon eos 300d - image to dark


Try lithium batteries or rechargables in the 2500mah range,to me they seem to work best in a flash.
If you use alkalines,use a well known brand.But with alkalines,as they loose power it takes longer for the flash to recycle.
Also the monitor might need to be calibrated or adjusting brightness and contrast.
Mine sometimes does the same thing,I just use Photoshop to adjust it.

Why do my pictures look too dark?


You may need to use the flash. Make sure the setting is not flash off. If you're using the flash, make sure your subject is within the range of 14 feet for wide angle shots or 11 feet for telephoto shots. Use Image Expert to adjust the picture's brightness and contrast. Try adjusting the camera's exposure or sensitivity settings (use the Manual user mode). If you're taking pictures in the Manual user mode, look for the EV! warning that appears on your LCD screen when you are taking pictures out of the ideal exposure range. If you have trouble setting both the aperture and shutter speed manually, try adjusting the aperture and letting the camera choose the shutter speed with Aperture Priority mode. If you're using the macro mode to take a close-up photo, be sure to provide adequate lighting for your subject. If you're taking a picture at night and you want to light up the background as well as your subject, use the camera's slow synchronized flash mode. If you need more light, attach an optional external flash to the camera's hot shoe.
