Question about Fuji FinePix S1000FD Digital Camera

1 Answer

Yellowish tint on faces, shadows, gold backgrounds

Some of the pictures have a shadow cast on them. Background is gold in color on some of the indoor shots. Pictures not as clear as I had expected. Faces have a yellowish cast on some shots. All of these problems happen with indoor picture taking.

    Same problem, overly saturated yellows and reds.

    Same problem, but it's not the white balance. I have used auto and even custom by pointing the cam at a white object and setting the white balance. The camera is overly sensitive to warm colors, such as reds, yellows and orange. Cool colors such as blue and green come out gray. All this occurs within the same shot. Some elements of a shot will have perfect color, yet skin tones of any people in the shot will be orange. If it was a white balance problem, the entire shot would have an overall tint.

Check the white balance setting of the camera. As you have a yellow cast, it could be because you are using it in Fluorescent (or Tubelight) setting. Changing this to Auto should solve this problem.

Nikon d-90, shadows in pictures


if you're using pop up flash, you'll get more shadows doing a portrait shot than a landscape shot just due to the position of the flash bulb and the angle the shadows are cast.

Green pictures


Assuming the camera is not faulty the most frequent reason for a green tint is the selection of the wrong white balance in the camera menu. The menu will contain "AWB", "daylight", sometimes represented by a stylised sun logo and indoor. If you use "daylight" for indoor photos the pictures will have a green cast. Select "AWB" for generally acceptable results. If the pictures have a green cast on outdoor pictures you have a problem

What is forced flash


"Forced flash" is when you force the flash to fire even if the camera thinks there's enough light to photograph without it.

As an example, consider taking a photo of a person outdoors with the sun coming from one side and casting half the face in shadow. By forcing the flash to fire, you can illuminate the shadowed portion without affecting the background.

By using the flash, I get a shadow around the right side of peoples faces, doesn't happen when not using flash, but color is not as good.


Are you new to photography? The flash emits an intense light and depending on where it is found on the camera in relation to the lens, it will cast a shadow on one side or the other. DSLR cameras solve the problem by mounting an external flash directly over the lens and high up so the shadow is less noticeable. If you take a lot of people's faces, you might want to explore "fill lighting".

I have two shadows that show up in my pictures in the same place. Tried to clean the lens that didn't help. Any ideas????


you have dust on your ccd... this is really bad... its something i can't recommend trying to fix at home... its so easy to get more dust in there... so if you really like the camera take it to a repair shop?

i had a dust shadow on a camera i really liked ... it was on the top half of the image and always looked terrible... so i started taking pictures with camera UPSIDE DOWN ... you could hardly ever see the shadows on the darker background....

rate if helpful, good luck

When taking indoor photos, sometimes i get shadows on different placesof the photo


If you're getting shadows on the bottom center of indoor photos when take with a flash, it is most probably due to the length of the lens on the camera.

A long, telephoto / zoom lenses will create the largest amount of shadow, while shorter and wide angle lenses will be least likely cast shadows. You can reduce the amount of shadow in pictures by removing the lens hood that may be on the end of the lens. The lens hood is to primarily to shield the lens from direct (sun) light, and probably isn't needed for indoor flash photography. Also, rely less on the zoom function of the lens on the camera and physically moving closer to your subject instead. The flash will need to provide much less light output and result in more flashes per battery.

You could use a separate flash - held off the camera so that the lens is not obstructing the light of the on camera flash. Using a Nikon Speed Light, you can set the on camera flash to provide a low output, that would be used primarily to trigger a Nikon Speed Light held by someone or arranged on another surface etc. Youtube is a great source for real life, practical "How To" videos for many operations of the camera and accessories.

I hope this was helpful!

Exposure dark / yellowish tint


The noise reduction aspect of this camera can cause some of this--you may wish to reduce the noise reduction in the quality settings of the camera (see your manual for directions) further, if you are open to post-production fixes you may wish to use a program like Adobe Lightroom2 to correct some of this. Finally you may wish to shoot indoors using the RAW or RAW+JPEG setting. Doing so will give you more control over post-production color correction, and somewhat less artifacting from the noise reduction software.
