Question about Nikon D40x Digital Camera

Misty Images Hi, I was wondering if you could help. A couple of days ago, the weather was bright and sunny, but the image came out incredibly misty. I wiped the lens and retook the shot, but the same thing happened. Hope you can guide me in solving this problem.

Ouch!

  1. Make sure lens is clean on both ends. Use a lens cleaner NOT glass cleaner & use a cleaning glasses cloth. No paper.
  2. If that does not solve problem you have moisture (condensation )on you image pickup. you can take lens off let camera air out place clean lent free towel over opening to keep particles out off camera.
  3. If that does not work you will have to have it cleaned by a repair shop.
Going from hot or clod environments or wet climates can cause moisture to gather on image sensor & inside camera always try to keep camera in a camera bag & avoid sudden temperature changes.

Blury photos & blury screen (fe 270)


Can be cause from many things.. most common would be dirty and/or scratched lens. Another cause could be condensation inside the device itself. Look into the lens and see if it seems misty or coudy.. at an angle also to see if the should be smooth lens is matte (rough). If it looks like it's misty or steamy behind the lens then that means you need to let it 'dry out' in a warm dry place.. or.. take it to a photo shop to have it maintained.

Pictures are misty if we take them in the sunlight & the battery power becomes lower quickly even if it is charged full.


You should know that if take pictures against the sunlight it will be misty. About the batteries, if those are NiCad batteries, it has a problem called memory effect. If you recharge the batteries before it's completely empty, the next time the battery shows it needs recharge when it reaches that level. So recharge the batteries only when they are fully empty. You will have to replace the battery now.

Pink and Black in natural light


It sounds like the light sensor on the camera is malfunctioning. Try cleaning the sensor. If the senor doesn't work at all it will not be able to tell when the camera is operationg in bright light. Kind of like having your eyes dialated and walking outside on a sunny day.

When taking photos at night I sometimes get a red haze


It's probably because of the artificial light affecting the white balance, causing the images to appear too 'hot'. Ideally, you could post up some photos so we can see (along with the EXIF data).

If you shoot in RAW you can easily adjust when post processing.

No picture when its sunny outside colour is distorted inside its a jvc digital cam gr-d33ag


On several camera the ccd is sensitive to bright and causes the images to come out very dark or out of focus because the auto focus sensor is being blinded. Try taking pictures with you back towards the sun and try turning off your flash this some times helps out. I hope this helps you and happy photo taking.

Nikon 5000 focus probs


Depending on how long you have had the camera - Nikon may come up with a free solution. Contact Technical Support at Nikon. The auto focus is not functioning as it should. Do make sure you are not covering any 'Windows' on the front of the camera when taking, shots.

Over exposure of images


unfortunatly, all I can offer you is an accurate testing for the settings, in order To verify that the camera cannot make a proper exposure. Go outdoors on a sunny day, put the camera on manual, aperture to f8 and shutter speed to 1/500 and ISO at 100. You should get a pretty good picture with proper exposure. This is the "Sunny 16 rule", F16 at 1/125 ISO 100 which is EV15. Correct exposure for a clear sunny day, not in the shade. if it fails, I would say there's some problem in the mechanizm, probobly one that requires a technician, or at least more knowladge than I can offer you. good luck.
