FUJI finepix S6500fd Exposure problems - no matter how slow the film speed and how fast the shutter - outdoor pictures are massively overexposed and can barely be viewed on the display screen. A lot of pictures have strange lines either horizontal or eliptical aswell.

One solution is to get a photo editing program to your computer, you should be able to adjust the pictures and fix this problem on the computer.

Nixon S8100 fairly new camera, nice pics if the subject doesnt move but horrible pictures if object moves. Very blurry.


If everything in the picture is blurry, you are moving the camera when you press the shutter button. If only the subject is blurry and the background is clear the problem is too slow shutter speed. If this is cause by movement of the camera you must learn to SQUEESE the button while being sure you don't move the camera. It just takes a little practice. If this problem caused by a shutter speed that is too slow, it is remedied by increasing the ISO "film" speed. Even though you have no film, the camera has a "speed" setting that relates to that. The higher ISO value increases the camera's sensitivity to light and thus allows for faster shutter speed. Normally the ISO choices are 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600. Try using 400. The ISO setting is in one of your camera menus. 400 is fast enough to solve your problem in all but very fast movement of either the camera or subject. Using ISO above 400 will cause your pictures to look grainy and not as sharp. Use the highest speed only when absolutely necessary. Slower ISO numbers produce the finest grain and thus the sharpest pictures. It a trade off between ISO and shutter speed because the exposure is a combination of the ISO and shutter speed and lens opening. Each one effects the exposure by half or double.

Whenever I take photos in shutter priority mode, all the pictures seem to be UNDEREXPOSED not overexposed like most people say it is. It also says LO where the f-stop number should be. PLEASE HELP!


Your shutter speed is too fast. The correct exposure requires a lens aperture larger than physically possible on the lens. That's what the "LO" is telling you. Slow down the shutter speed until the "LO" goes away. Alternatively, increase the ISO sensitivity (or a combination of both).

Just because you can set the shutter speed to whatever you want doesn't mean you can get a properly exposed photo at that shutter speed. There may be too little light (as in your case) or too much light. You have to use a shutter speed appropriate for the subject and the light conditions.

How do you change the shutter speed on the finepix s5500?


That depends on the selected shooting mode.

In Program AE, press the exposure compensation button and then up/down on the 4-way button to change the shutter speed/aperture combination.

In Aperture Priority AE you can control the shutter speed indirectly. Press the exposure compensation button and then up/down on the 4-way button to change the aperture, and the camera will adjust the shutter speed to suit.

In Shutter Priority AE press the exposure compensation button and then up/down on the 4-way button to change the shutter speed. The camera will adjust the aperture to suit.

In Manual press the exposure compensation button and then up/down on the 4-way button to change the shutter speed. You'll have to press left/right on the 4-way button to select the appropriate aperture.

Fujifilm finepix f20le. circular grainy pic loss of sound


First go to the SETUP menu and make sure that the PLAYBACK VOLUME setting is set to a value greater than 0. Try increasing the shutter speed of any photos as CCD's will notoriously produce grainy images on slow shutter speeds. Grainy videos will indicate poor light, camera shake during filming or moving too quickly so the autofocus cannot function correctly, or using too low a resolution and will be especially noticeable at 640 x 480 when viewed on a large high resolution screen. If all the above make no difference then you may need to get the camera serviced.

Casio S600 Exilim takes outdoor overexposed pictures


Check the ISO ( film speed (ASA) that you have set change it to either 100 or 200 and even 64 if it allows that.

You need to have the shutter snap fast in sunny/bright conditions and the Aperture needs to be a large number like F11

The higher the number the smaller the aperture ( sharper image not bleached out) F4 can be too large so can F8 in many cases and will, combined with the wrong ISO ..overexpose your pictures.

Finepix E550 -suddenly very grainy photos and over exposed?


Have you checked what ISO you have selected here?
Graininess and over exposure can be caused by selecting the wrong ISO ( which in film days was ASA ( film speed) The average ISO should be 100 some early models allowed ISO 64 or similar. Having it set at 400 -800 ISO can also have the pics come out grainy. But not nescessarily overexposed unless you point directly at the light source as these ratings are for low light/movement situations. The video mode usually sets itself up differently to picture mode. The fact that you say your video is OK says there is nothing wrong with the lens or sensor, just the settings you have initially chosen to have autoed.

The shutter speed seems very slow. It's almost impossible to take simultaneous shots as you would perhaps for shooting sport or something similar. What can I do to improve it?


Check how full your memory is. The fuller it is the longer the camera takes to store the image. If you are using the flash, it also takes time to recharge and as the battery drains it takes longer.

Shutter lag on fuji finepix s7000 - is there a solution ?


2 things - you could do 1 or both, depending on the photographic situation:
1) If you can choose manual focusing, select manual focussing & prefocus on subject. This eliminates the need to refocus. I do this lots with the S9500 model.
2) If you can shoot in manual mode, use auto exposure to see what shutter speed & aperture the camera selects when the camera is pointed at the ground (or other suitably lit spot). Change to manual exposure & set the aperture & shutter speed indicated by the camera in AUTO mode.

Once you do either or both of these you will get instantaneous shutter release.

Practise on unimportant subjects first and see how you go.

My FinePix A605 digital camera has a fault symbol which says the shutter speed is too slow, so the pictures are blurred. How can I alter the speed and cure the problem


Most digital cameras have a problem with the shutter speed at one point or another. 90% of the time this had to do with the CCD. To make it simple, a CCD is what a digital camera uses as "film". It also controls the brightness,
apature and shutter speed. Being that it's a digital camera, you can not alter the shutter speed manually. You best bet would be to go to an electronics store or a camera shop and see if they can tear it apart for you and check the CCD. I would put money on it being a problem witht he CCD.
Hope it helped!
