When I put it on M mode or auto mode it takes really horrible pictures, can't even see the picture, real bright.. When I put it on movie mode it takes great pictures but that is not good.

Usually when it is on M mode there is additional options you can adjust "manually" for good shots... It could just be that the options are adjusted not for the type of Pics you intend to make. Ex. It's set on low light when you are trying to take a high light exposure picture.

Hello, I have a sony DSC-T70 and I cant change the flash options. i should be able to select the flash icon and choose my flash setting, but the only setting is no flash. I really want my flash to work...


Have you consulted the manual in this?

pages 15 to 18

But in any case I beleave you first need to set your camera into the PROGRAM AUTO mode

Let me know if you need more assistance.

How do I change the shutter speed on the Fuji Film Fiinepix Z20 fd


Turn on the camera and rotate the shooting dial to one of the shooting modes, such as auto.

Press the "F-Mode" button to adjust frequent settings like ISO and picture quality.

Use the up and down arrow buttons to navigate between settings. Press the right arrow button to present the available options.

Use the up and down arrows again to adjust the settings option. Press the "Menu/OK" button to apply the change.

Exit the menu by pressing the F-Mode button again. Press the Menu/OK button while in shooting mode to adjust less frequent options, such as white balance and the auto-focus mode.

Use the up and down arrow buttons to navigate between settings, similar to the F-Mode menu. Press the right arrow button to present the available options.

Use the up and down arrows again to adjust the settings option. Press the "Menu/OK" button to apply the change

I have the same issue with my d40x. i have tried all the tips on here with no resolution to my prob. one thing i have noticed when i have navigated around the menu is that focus mode is set to AF-A. AF-S...

You're in one of the point&shoot modes. In these modes the camera takes almost complete control of itself and leaves you with very few options. If you want more control over the camera, switch to one of the PSAM modes. The P mode works almost exactly like the green Auto mode, except that you can override any and every setting.

Canon IXUS 80IS - I can't turn the flash on

When this camera is in "Auto" mode the only flash functions available are Auto or Flash Off - in order to get the option of "Flash On" for all pictures you have to put the camera in "Manual" mode - to do this:

-Set the mode switch to the camera icon
-Press the "Func./Set" button
-Use the left or right arrow keys to set it to Manual mode (its icon looks like half a camera with the letter M beside it)
-Press the "Func./Set" button again to save your mode change.

Now when you press the flash button and cycle through the choices there will also be a "Flash On" option.

Try menu-> setup->setup1, initialize, ok- this resets calendar and time as well. It brought mine back to correct mode selection.  Also make sure your battery is fully charged.

Aperture Priority Mode - an undocumented feature

In addition to the "quirks" of the Landscape and Aperture Priority Modes (neither mode works as documented!)..... The camera also behaves differently in full Manual Mode (it changes the settings, whether you want it to or not to compensate for available light)... At lower Zoom Levels, the camera will adjust the Shutter Speed Only, to try and compensate for available light... For example: with the Camera preset to F5.6 Aperture, and 1/48 sec. shutter speed, the camera will adjust the shutter speed between a range of 1/30 to 1/291 sec, to try and "auto expose" the shot for lower or higher light levels, even though you're in manual mode. At an Aperture Setting of 2.8 and 1/48 of a second, the number of internal steps in shutter speed the camera is willing to take, increases dramatially - for example: shutter speeds up to 1/600 of a second, even though you have the shutter set to 1/48 in manual mode. The camera WILL NOT attempt to adjust the Aperture to compensate for proper exposure in available light (OR WILL IT??).... It depends on your Zoom settings! It won't if your're near to full wide angle, but IT WILL if you are using the Zoom. Once you cross some unknown zoom threshold (it doesn't have to be at full zoom), then the camera begins to change both the Aperture and Shutter speed to compensate for available light, even though you are in "Full Manual", versus Auto Exposure Mode. In Manual Mode, (as in Aperture Priority Mode), the amount of change the camera is willing to make to your settings, appears to be related to a preset number of internal steps, with the number of steps dependent on both Aperture and Zoom Settings, before it gives an EV Warning for Over or Under Exposure conditions.... The type (shutter speed only for wide angle, shutter and aperture for zoom) and amount (number of internal "steps" it takes to increase/decrease shutter speed and increase or decrease aperture), is dependent on the amount of zoom you are using for the current shot.
