Question about Panasonic PV-GS500 Camcorder

1 Answer

Cannot shoot outdoors

Whenever I want to shoot something outdoors with this camera, the image turns out all white, unless I am looking at something very close up, and even then it's over-exposed. Granted, it's an overcast day (in Syracuse, NY), but why is it doing that? I can't find any setting to change the exposure on. I need to shoot today!!

My camera cant photoshoot on outdoors, everything that captured looks white. When I photo shoot in our house -- dark room, it seems fine, but WHITE HORIZONTAL LINES appear? I've already used it about 3...


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help. By the way, recommend trying the pencil tapping method described in this article for a stuck "open" shutter.

Whenever photographs are taken outdoors in the daytime , the images are hazy and whitish in nature.


alter your white balance and use ISO 100 setting You may also want to make sure you have outside setting selected. This sounds like overexposure and is due to incorrect white balance.

Problem


You haven't specified what camera model you have, but I suspect the problem could be due to the white balance setting on the camera. Read your owners manual and check the section on adjusting the white balance. If you have it set for something opposite to the actual ambient lighting condition (ie the setting is for incandescent light bulbs, and you are shooting outdoors in sunlight, for example), then it can really throw the colour spectrum off.

Colour tone issues with Fujifilm Finepix S5700


It sounds like the sepia tone is most likely caused by the tungsten lights in a regular room. Without flash, the only source of illumination indoors is artificial light (unless window light is dominant). There is a way to color balance the camera to approximate sunlight through the manual settings. Look in the menus for "white balance". You'll need to take the camera off of the fully automatic settings first. Move the cursor up or down while looking at the image and you will see the color shift. when you find a color balance you like for that particular room's lighting conditions, hit the OK to lock it in the activated position. Remember to go back to "auto" white balance for most shooting, especially outdoors, or everything will take on a wierd color cast.

Pictures are too bright when shooting outdoors in sunlight


Have you tried changing your settings manually to outdoor? Or adjusted the aperture? You can usually find the aperture settings under the menu button. If not, try adjusting to outdoor conditions and disabling flash. And also, lower your white balance a good bit.
