    Having the most up to date camera can have a major effect in case you're in a low light situation or shooting objects in movement, however you won't confront these circumstances when taking item photography. In the event that you have any present day DSLR, simple to use, or even a cell phone, it's reasonable that putting resources into lighting will enhance your item photography more than putting resources into another camera.

Different lights for different effects. If you want the best color, and want to avoid harsh shadows, shop on ebay for a Novatron power pack and flash heads. Two flash heads and the pack can be had for under $200. Start making money before spending more. The flash heads will provide great color, allow for adding umbrellas to diffuse the light, and allow for shooting at lower ISO so you have high image quality. The flatheads also have flicker free tungsten modeling lights.

I would suggest keeping inexpensive basics in mind. The most natural, full-spectrum, controllable light for indoors, is that from a good-old filament bulb. Tungsten filaments emit light from their glowing-hot wire, same as the Sun. Beyond that, if you want a customized spectrum, get fancy with the latest RGB LED set-ups if $$ is no concern, or use your computer's printer, loaded with transparent sheets, and print-out custom-colored filters from documents created in some type of "paint" or "art" software. I imagine any color filter is possible to print and place in front of a basic white light source, LED, fluorescent, whatever
Happy Shooting!!

Lighting can range from the very basic light sources to the more sophisticated professional lighting source. For 'Quick-N-Dirty' solutions, make sure your lighting is consistent. For example, if you are using a cheap shop lamp from a hardware store, make sure the lights are new and the same type (halogen, incandescent, florescent, LED, etc.) and adjust your white balance according to your light source.
You may also use basic materials to help modify the light. For example, using the shop lights, you could tape paper towel over the light to soften things up, like for portraits.

I recommend reading-up on Photography Lighting and keep experimenting with different light sources at different angles.

Finally, I would use a bulb that have a natural spectrum, like GE Reveal Hologens (cheap) or Full Spectrum Florescent (expensive)

HAVE FUN!!!

Wheres the thermal fuse to the lamp


It should be in the lamp housing, under the lamp. Probably a disk type. Make SURE you vacuum the dust from the lamp area after you replace the fuse. DO NOT blow air into the housing--it may get into the engine and contiminate it !!

Samsung Model # HL-P5674N


nothing else is required except inserting it right which is not hard==lamp does not seem to be your problem, Other things will cause this issue as well, it is not always the lamp that is bad.

One thing you might want to do is remove here the new lamp unit to make sure it went in clean and straight, With it removed look in the direction the lamp faces for the color wheel, look to see it is intact and not shattered, I attach a photo.

I mention as this is also a common issue in this set, usually proceeded by a high pitched fan like sound or even when failing a grinding noise.

Needtotake immediate photos. Can't open lens cover. (don't know how.)


If it's a professional camera... squeeze the tabs on either side of the cover toward the middle of the lens cap and it should come right off.
If it's a point-and-shoot camera, these usually slide out of the way automatically when you turn the camera's power on.
If you need more information, it would be really helpful to know which type of camera you have.
Good luck!

I cannot get the wire clasps to snap back into place after replacing the housing lamp. Model HLT4675S...There is a wire bracket that holds the lamp in place. I cannot get it to snap back.


Hi
Make sure you have the lamp turned in the right direction and also make sure the front of the lamp or bulb is flush with the front of the lamp housing, if it is not then you have the lamp in the wront posistion and you are trying to put the bracket on the high end of the lamp. And also make sure you purchased the correct lamp, so people by just the blub and not the lamp housing which is less expensive this way, but you need to examine the bulb througly to make sure you get a phillips type lamp.

Need a New Bulb Soon per the message on the TV screen when you turn it on . Where is it and what is the part number? Made August 2006.


you don't list make and model of your set so its difficult to be precise, however most of the lamps are assessable either from the side (most often) and sometimes in the back. Look for a door about 5 inches square, it should open and inside you will find a little handle usually a loop that you can grab with your finger, pull on it and the lamp housing will come out. You can find the part number on the housing or on the lamp itself. Better yet is to type a Google search like this, needed,projector lamp for (your make and model) flat panel television, you should find several sources for the lamps. you will pay approximately 60 dollars for the lamp itself and maybe 30 to 40 more for a lamp already mounted in a housing that will fit your set. the lamps are not hard to install into the houseing if your handy and "careful" not to touch the bulb with your bare fingers. (the grease on your fingers will cause the lamp to burn out prematurely. good luck

My lamp burned out and I got the replacecent lamp from samsungparts.com, but the housing didnt fit into the tv. So I put the new lamp in the old housing, after verifying the lamp was the correct part...


According to an aftermarket lamp manufacturer, there are 2 different lamps (1st and 2nd generations) available for the Samsung HL-R4667W, but only one of them will actually fit. The lamp that is commonly associated with this model, BP96-00826A, is used in housing that has a silver bump protruding from the opposite side as the front face of the bulb itself. The other type, BP96-01073A, is placed in a housing that has a smooth back face and a overall larger bulb. I can verify that the HL-R4667W that I own seems to have the second type of lamp.

As long as you didn't open the housing of the lamp that you purchased to try to install the lamp in the housing that your TV came with, you might still be able to request an exchange from samsungparts.com, given the circumstances.

How do I install the samsung HLR4667WX/XAA lamp...are there instructions that come with that part or do i need a professional to install


The manual for the TV usually has the instructions. You can find many Samsung manuals on their website (samsung.com). The bulb replacement is easy enough to do it yourself. You need a Phillips screw driver and a lint free cloth to handle the new lamp. Turn off and unplug the TV. Wait ~30 minutes after turning off the TV before starting.

Usually you need to remove one Phillips screw to take off the lamp cover. Then loosen two additional screws and pull the lamp housing out by the handle. If your new lamp came with the housing, just swap. Otherwise (some OEM lamps), you need to remove 6 more screws to exchange the lamps (these have nuts that are only hand tight). Make sure not to mix up the old and new lamps and store the old one in a safe place until you can dispose of it.

Then reverse the steps. If the cover is not properly secured the TV will not come on.

I hope this helps.

Not really possible with most cameras. Set the ISO to the highest setting and turn off the flash. This is the best you can do. Professional cameras that can shoot at ISO 3200-5200 are about the only cameras that can take that type of shot. Most pocket cameras do not have ISO above 1000.

Good luck!

There is a Thermal fuse under the lamp housing that opens up and Sony has a New style fuse to replace it with, it opens up one of the p/s lines to set code 6, replace with new thermal fuse and test. You will want a Skilled Professional to replace this fuse as it does require some dissassembly and removal of light engine to remove fuse from under lamp housing to put new one on side of lamp housing.
