Grey Photos Photos appear to have no or very little colour.....Is it faulty or is it a setting problem? The bits that have colour are quite vivid but the rest seems in black and white

    I have the same problem, yellows and reds are overly saturated. Dark green leaves on trees come out like black and white film. Skin tones are unnatural, usually orange. It's not your white balance, it's a flaw in the design of the camera. Improper white balance effects the overall tint of the shot, not just select items in the frame.

    this is a major flaw in the image processing engine. i have the same issue, and it's not a white balance error

    I have the same problem! I bought this camera specifically for my trip to Hawaii and because it was overcast some days, most of my pics came out looking extremely desaturated.

Early production versions of the S1000 had this error in the firmware. There is a firmware upgrade that addresses this problem. Here is a link to the upgrade; http://www.fujifilm.ca/x16655.xml
Later versions of the S1000 came from the factory with this version of the firmware, and the colour problems stopped. Customers of mine who have performed the upgrade all report the problems to be rectified.

When I take photos with my finepix s1000fd the colours are hardly ever accurate, it will pick out some colours and make them very bright, but the rest of the photo will be a greyish colour. Some photos...


Hello - You will find this happens mostly in Automatic mode which needs a better spread of light.
The grey background is when another color has been highlighted/increased and the background get saturated out (usually the sky goes grey) or the clouds go white.
Try going into Scenic settings ..ie.. vivid , sunset , soft etc and keep that setting open while taking shots.
or -- Use a Neutral density filter where there are bright and dark spots in frame.
or - Use the aep button to increase a stop before taking a picture..
AND -- get into S or A or Manual mode .
I called Fuji Tech support UK and they admitted the S1000 cameras where 1 stop low on light in the fully auto mode, because it was easier to AD light afterwards in software,

Can you upload a photo that shows this? You can just take one set to low resolution so the file size isn't too big.

You need to go into the REC mode (the one above menu when taking a photo). Change this to PGM and click OK. Now go into MENU, on the 3/4 page second button down should be a box with a + in the corner. This is the colour mode option. You can now change to vivid, sepia or black and white.

Hope this helps.

Reddish tinged photos


It might be a possible CCD defect , as usually the symptoms are odd colours in a photo hence your red tinge in your photos.Its quite expensive as it labour intensive to fix .Rather just buy another camera or you can try to solder another ccd from anotehr camera > look on ebay for parts (not recommended precise alignment needed).

Colour representation on Eos 40d


Have you checked your white balance? Having an improper white balance is one of the most common color problems with digital cameras. 
If true color is what you're after, then you need to tell the camera what true white is, too. Try either shooting a grey card, or using an expodisc. For each lighting situation, you properly expose a shot of the grey card, or a blank frame using the expodisc, and then you set your camera to use that image as the white balance image. Now, your camera will see what you see a whole lot better. Keep in mind that the auto white balance is just a best approximation of what the camera thinks it sees. However, in many situations, there is not only one light source. There are reflected light sources, diffused light sources, and direct light sources all over the place — all of them different color temperatures and intensities. The grey card and expo disc help take these all into account. And while it may seem like a lot of trouble to set the white balance all the time, I think it will be well worth it when you (and everyone) else is amazed at the true colors you are capturing.
Happy shooting!
