Question about Kodak EasyShare Z612 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Z612 HELP!!!!!!!!!!I'm in Hawaii and whenever I take a picture outside it';s nothing but a big white mess. I've adjusted the setting and flash every which way that I can think of. Sometimes there are lines across the screen almost like a rainbow. I can take pictures inside the hotel room as long as the lights are off or behind me. At this point I may need to go buy a disposable camera. Please help A.S.A.P. Thank you.

I returned the camera to my Temecula Costco after showing them what the pictures looked like. Then I bought A new Kodak 7.1 (Z712-IS). After reviewing the booklet I concluded it could possibly have been the scroll dial on right upper corner known as JOG dial which controls light. But, I'm not sure as I'm not willing to test it on my new camera. By the way, I love this camera. Good Luck.

Pentax optio e50

Try messing around with the settings so different pictures are achieved. is there flash? (I personally never use flash in any pictures I take). Just setting the ISO to manual doesn't do anything, There are specific values, setting it to a lower may help, there's also white balance and exposure you should take in account. The camera also isn't that great of a camera and I'd suggest getting a new one.

When i take a picture with the flash, it has a yellow tint to it. Why?

Most likely your white balance setting needs to be adjusted. You didn't specify the model of your camera, so I can't tell you exactly how to change it (your manual should say).
Your camera should have several settings:
"A" or "Auto"
"Tungsten" or "Indoors" or "Incandescent"

and possibly also:
"Cloudy" or "Shade"

When taking flash pictures, the "Flash" setting should be best. If you don't have a flash setting, then "Daylight" or "Sun" will be the best.

Human eyes adjust quickly and easily to different colors of light, but cameras see light as it is, so indoor light will look yellow, outside bluish, fluorescent greenish, etc. So digital cameras shift the colors in the image to try to make white objects appear white like they would to your eye. But sometimes they mess up and don't get it quite right. That is where the manual white balance settings come in. If you play with these settings, then you will find you can improve the color quality of many of your pictures.

Whenever I take a picture outside during the day, the pictures come out very bright. I haven't adjusted any settings on it. ideas?

You may have the mode dial set to something like "night pictures"...The ISO may be set too high...the white balance may be on something other than "Auto WB".

Pictures are over exposed when outside

You may have the settings wrong. Check in the MENU to see if you have it set to "inside" pics rather than outside.
Also the ISO has a lot to do with the exposure. If the iso is set too low outside sunlight pics will be white or overexposed. Try setting ISO on wheel for various options select program mode button and MENU select ISO 120 or 250. These are are pretty general settings. the flash will only engage inside or outside if the light is low ( like evening) I suspect your ISO setting is at a setting that is incompatible with bright sunlight
Also select White Balance and move it to DAYLIGHT

take a few shots inside and out to see if there is an improvement.

What is and how do i adjust the white balnceon my fujitsu S550 digital camers?

Adjustment is in the menu screen, you shouldn't have to go very deep as it is a frequently adjusted setting.
White Balance is how the camera interprets white depending on ambient lighting. Have you ever noticed how when you are taking pictures inside at night and all of the light comes from lamps and the flash that your pictures have a yellow look? Take a picture under flourescent lamps and the pictures look different as well? How about outside? Best true color rendition on the picture taken outside, but different than the others.
White balance is a way for the photographer to adjust the tone of the picture to accurately reproduce the true colors seen in real life in the picture. Most cameras have an automatic white balance and they usually work fairly well. But for the best results, set it manually. Your whites will be white and skin tones appear accurate.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!

see if there is a "default" option, if not set everything back to the middle, if the colors are still off you sure its not the convergence?
most big screens allow you to change "color temperature" it's like a default adjustment for 3 different brightness levels.... ie...COOL, WARM picture will show obvious changes in brightness

Crappy pictures

Describe wierd - this word means nothing. White flash images are over exposed- so reduce the ISO setting to a lowers number if the camera allows it. or Reduce power of the flash. The easiest way to do this is to put layers of tissue of the light reducing the intensity until you get it about right.
