The problem with your ccd this is the part that converts image to data and it is malfunctioning and need to be replaced. this item is replaced by the manufacture allot of the times for free even if the camera is out of warranty because the ccd should never go out it can only malfunction or get damages by bright lights, heat, or water.

Why are there lines in my photos


The manual says:
This phenomenon is called smearing. This is not a malfunction. Smearing is not recorded on still images, but is recorded as streaks or uneven colors on Sweep Panorama images or movies. ("Bright areas" refers to the sun or electric lights which are much brighter than surroundings.) It does not say a thing about lines in the prints. Are you sure the pictures do have lines too? Can you describe this more accurate?

Why does my camera have lines threw the picture and vidio that i take? digital camera w1200


Hi, It's likely caused by issues with the sensor that's within the camera. Are they consistent white lines and are they there in all modes?

My husband pulls tractors at night at tractor pulls, everytime I try to get a picture its too dark, the lighting around the pull isn't the greatest but it has some light


There are several solutions to taking pictures in the dark or low light. Night time photography can be difficult without a tripod. There are three ways you can get a brighter photo
1. Larger aperture - Make sure the aperture is set to the lowest f-stop for the largest aperture. f/2.8 or f/5.6 depending on your lenses capabilities. Choose the lowest number
2. Longer shutter speed - A longer shutter speed will allow more light to hit the canera's sensor and create a brighter picture. Unfortunately with a longer shutter speed, you will probably need a tripod because the photo will come out motion-blurred otherwise.
3. Higher ISO - A higher ISO will make the camera's sensor more sensitive to light and therefore creating a brighter picture without having to have a longer shutter speed. High ISO, however, can introduce unpleasant noise/grain to a photo.

If you want to take your picture while holding the camera in your hands, I recommend the largest aperture (small f/stop) and a high ISO.
If you have a tripod, use it! and use a longer shutter speed since the tripod will hold the camera steady for you.

Good luck!

Picture is shaking in low light


Yes, low-light photography is difficult, precisely because there isn't much light. In order for the sensor (or film, for that matter) to record what little light there is, the shutter has to stay open longer. This gives the subject more opportunity to move, resulting in blurring. Worse, this gives the camera more opportunity to move, resulting in more blurring. The situation is much worse in a compact camera such as the S860, which has a much smaller sensor than a dSLR. In order to pack as many pixels into a smaller sensor, each sensor is less sensitive to light.

If the subjects are not too far away, and at more or less the same distance, you can use flash, either on the camera or off. If the subjects are too far away, the flash won't make any difference. If the subjects are at differing distances, nearer ones will be much brighter than the farther ones.

You can raise the ISO to make the sensor more sensitive to light. This also increases digital noise. How much noise is acceptable is your call. You'll have to take the S860 out of Auto mode for this, though, and the results will still not be as good as you'd get out of a dSLR.

The best way to stabilize a camera is to use a tripod. Failing that, you can use a table, railing, window sill, or other steady surface, in conjuction with the self-timer. By using the self-timer, you give the camera an opportunity to quit moving after you pull your hand away.

None of these suggestions will make low-light photography easy, merely less difficult. Entire books have been written on the subject of available-light photography, your local public library may have one or two.

Lines on screen on my camera


If the pictures have lines, the fault is either with the processor board having a defect, or an open group of contacts, or the LCD imager itself. Lines are an indication of a loss of matrix addressing.
The service rep would replace the processor board or the imager. This will not be low cost to service. Check to see if the camera is under warranty.
I suggest if you buy a new camera, take an extended warranty.

In medium light, my V530 takes brighter pictures


Sounds like the flash is bouncing off something like a large white surface or a highly reflective one and shutting down the exposure of the camera.

Sony Mavica CD400 orange vertical line appears.


In lesser digital camera chips, this is typically "vertical smear". It is especially apparent if there is a much brighter light source in the image. I.E., a street lamp on a dark street. I have used an early version of the Mavica and experienced this type of situation with that camera, so am assuming that this is typical throughout the Mavica model line. The work-sround is be particular about the lighting situations you shoot with the camera.

Casio EX-Z60 camera - photos are whitened or brightened


If you enlarge the picture you have just taken, is there same lines running accross the picture?

If so, the shutter magnets are causing interferance and causing the picture to overexpose and have tiny lines running through it.

In Australia the complete lens will need to be replaced as the shutter does not come seperate and this is very expensive.

Sorry for the bad news.

Low light photos


It depends.

If you want to shoot static content eg. landscapes in the afternoon etc., you need long exposure times and of course a tripod. If your lens has image stabilization, do not forget to turn it off while you mount your camera on the tripod.

The other thing you can do, but it will cost you money, is get a brighter lens, (eg. F2.8). This combined with Image Stabilization will give you more freedom to capture moments in low light conditions, as a brighter lens can give you a brighter result without having to increase ISO.

Finally, another cheap method is to increase ISO. Of course this brings noise into the picture. Up to ISO 400 you may not notice the difference, but if you go higher, you will. If we are talking about point and shoot photos that you are going to print them on normal photo dimensions, a certain amount of noise won't be noticeable.

Hope this helps.
