White pictures i found out my camera is not working under daylight. i got only very white pictures. and when i used zoom to see those white pictures closer, i found out horizontal white lines. i can still take pictures in the room or buildings. i didn't drop it or slamed it..i always keep it in it's case. and it's in my back bag. the last time i used was taking out some photos by using USB and sent them via email..if anyone can help me, that will be a great help for me...

    my camera suddenly didn't worked on daylight. Too much of white are captured. When you focused your camera, there are lines visible on the LCD. It just happen and this case is the same with that of my friend's. Could this be a perenial problem of the EX-S500 model? This is just a year old and I cant do anything to fix the problem. Any help other than resetting to default settings? It didn't worked out as adviced.

    Same problem, overexposed pics outside, inside not really a problem. Pics look moved too while I have a steady hand. After only a year and 3 months of using this camera, very disappointing!

    Over-exposed pictures. Have reset the white balance and other setting, to no avail. Camera worked fine for three years before. Pictures are fine under low-light conditions.

    Exact same problem. Overexposed and white horizontal lines. Casio's tech support was useless to what is obviously a manufacturing defect. Their solution send in to their repair facility and pay for "repairs". Don't buy Casio ever again.

  • choymun Dec 13, 2008

    I face the same problem. I was taking photos under bright sunslight and the surroundings were all green, so I used the Best Shot feature for Natural Green, and all of a sudden, over exposed pictures came out.

    Under low light condition, with flash on, images were not well focus though the colors were OK.

    I brought the camera back to where I bought it and the staff told me that there's nothing he could do but to send it for repair. I couldn't be bothered. But was really disappointed with it since I had been really good in handling it.

  • leilacamilla Jan 29, 2009

    yep same problem on the ex-z750. really annoying as i´m on a 4month holiday. camera less than 3 years old. at least i know there is nothing i can do, except buy a new camera :(

  • lpbeazley Feb 08, 2009

    I have the same problem, camera worked perfectly for 2 1/2 years, then suddenly started to over-expose outdoor shots. Works fine indoors and on video setting. I took it back to the retailer and was told to buy a new camera. I tried re-setting camera to no avail. Would love to find a solution....

  • casiosucks Mar 10, 2009

  • pkpujari Mar 19, 2009

    All outdoor photographs are white. Indoors are OK. I have reset the menu to original setting. Still it is giving white pictures. Now I see so many poeple have the same problem. Do not know if Casio will respond if we contact them.

  • Timmy_0000 Apr 01, 2009

    I have contacted CASIO and they asked me to send the camera for repair.
    The customer support has been so far very good.

If the photo shoot out show white , the obscure (quality variation), and even horizontal line ( white lines), and so on over-exposure cases, even if the use of anti-tremor, set to default values are invalid, because the camera shutter fault.

It's need repair camera machine shutter.

You may want to try reseting the camera to the factory defaults, the setting that accounts for different lighting situations may have been adjusted incorrectly.

Picturess are too green


there are advanced color correction modes,
Blue or dark pictures/videos
Keep your shooting distance inside of 2ft to 3ft, depending on
visibility and ambient light.
If you are using only one light, considering adding another light
(dual lights) or/and external flash accessory. The ideal
set-up is a combination of a light plus flash.
Consider purchasing the SeaLife Wide Angle Lens (SL975). The
fisheye lens allows you to get closer to the subject and fit more
into to picture frame.

For SeaLife camera with external light accessory (No external flash):
1) Set the camera's scene mode to Sea mode or Snorkel mode
2) Change camera's PHOTO and VIDEO White Balance
settings to DAYLIGHT.
For SeaLife camera with external light and flash accessories:
1) Set the scene mode to Ext. Flash mode
2) Change the VIDEO White Balance setting to DAYLIGHT.
For other underwater camera brands:
1) Set the Scene mode to "Auto" or "Underwater" scene
mode, as recommended by the camera manufacturer.
2) You may also need to change the White Balance setting to
DAYLIGHT depending on the camera's underwater color
correction or if pictures/video turns out red.

What is the difference in the optical and digital zoom?


Hi,

Find the difference below

Digital Zoom

1. Digital zoom is a part of digital cameras, and camcorders, which helps to crop the entire image, and then digitally enlarge the size of the viewfinder of the portion that is needed to zoom in on
2. Digital zoom crops the image down to a centred area with the same ratio as the original, and also interpolating the result back up to the pixel dimensions of the original. this method involves cropping, hence the resolution and quality is reduced
3. Digital zoom, crops a portion of the image and then enlarges it back to size. And due to this, image quality is reduced in comparison with the original one.
4. Using the digital zoom allows the user to get closer to the subject when the photographer wants to be discreet about taking pictures, like taking a picture of a person in a graduation ceremony.

Optical Zoom

1. While taking a picture using a Camera to want to get a close shot of the subject without moving physically closer, photographers use the optical zoom.
2. The optical zoom ratio of a digital camera measures how much the lens can actually zoom in to make subjects appear closer. Optical zoom, enlarges a picture while keeping the resolution and sharpness of the picture high.

3. There is no relation between optical zoom and the resolution of the photo, as optical zoom only enlarges the whole image or the subject to a certain range. So image quality only depends upon the mega pixel (MP) of the camera

4. Optical zoom is very useful, while taking a picture of a landscape, or to get a closer view of a subject, without reducing the quality of the entire image, like taking a picture of a Rainbow in the sky.

Ron

Every picture i take is not a good quality either it's blurry or the color is horrible - kind of yellowish - what kind of adjustment do i have to make


Well the blurry is caused by poor focus. Try not to zoom too much. Better to get closer to the subject if possible. Study your manual and adjust your diopter which loosely means adjust the viewfinder in and out whilst looking at a subject without using any zoom until the picture is clear. Then take you'll find it easier to focus when you do actually zoom. Sometimes there's a small sliding piece of plastic sticking out of the side of the lens. Otherwise it's a matter of turning the eyepiece to get the clarity. That's why I said check the manual. That will explain which method to use.

The yellowish colour is unusual. I would say check you have the White balance switch set to auto but lack of white balance is not usually a yellow picture. But check the white balance switch anyway and make sure it's in auto mode.

Ordinary light bulbs or some street lighting can give a yellow caste so check you have the inside outside button switched to the correct position, depending on where you are at the time of shooting.

Did you buy the camera used or new. Often people who have faulty cameras will sell them off cheap and run. Leaving the owner with the problems.

So to sum up. get closer to your subject rather than use zoom if you can. If you use a lot of zoom either use a tripod or place the camera on a firm surface or even hold the camera whilst you stop yourself from moving by leaning against a wall or tree etc.

Next remeber where you are and switch the indoor/outdoor switch accordingly

Optical / Digital Zoom


Press the "T" for telephoto and get closer to the subject. Optical telephoto zoom is like using a telescope to get closer to the subject before taking the picture. With optical Telephoto zoom you can maintain the full resolution and quality. After you have used all of the optical Telephoto range, the camera will continue to enhance the image with Digital Zoom. This enhances the image inside the camera by reducing the resolution and expanding fewer pixels to fill the same image space. Use the "W" Wide-angle button to back-up away from the subject or get a bigger area into your picture. You can even ZOOM IN on a picture in the playback mode for a better look at the details. Touch the Magnifying Glass Icon. Use the Arrow Keys to move around the display area.

Sony DSC-W12 Camera


The W12 must be a European version of the W1 or W5 camera. The W12 is not available in the USA. It sounds like you have the "digital zoom" feature active. Digital zoom lowers the quality of the photo. It (in effect) reduces the megapixels applied to an area of a photo. Digital zoom should not be used if you want quality results.

White Balance


Color reproduction differs depending on the lighting conditions. For instance, when daylight, the setting sun or indoor lighting is reflected on white paper, the shade of white produced will be slightly different for each. By setting the WB (White Balance), you can achieve more natural-looking color. You can also preview different color tones by trying the different settings under the actual light source, and checking the result on the viewfinder and monitor. You can choose mode from Auto, Preset 1, Preset 2, Custom, One-touch, and White balance compensation.
