Blurry white images when in shooting mode for still photos

There is problem on taking pictures when the sorrounding is well lighted or during daytime. The captured picture appeared to be blurry with grid lines, but if the place is less lighted I get better picture quality.

Outdoor pictures are all white


Double check the mode the carera is in to make sure you are not in manual mode. Most point and shoot digital cameras have an auto mode. Try putting the camera in auto mode to see if that helps. In manual mode you have to select the appropriate Fstop setting (how much light gets through the lens) and the shutter speed (how long the lens stays open during the shot).

How to improve picture quality of Digital Camera


Slow down the shutter speed of your digital camera. Whenever you must take a photo in a low light environment decrease your shutter speed. It is virtually impossible to take a blurry digital photo with a an extremely slow shutter speed. Even if your digital camera has an automatic or semi-automatic mode, slowing down the shutter speed will still produce a better digital photo. <br /> Wait until your digital camera is completely focused. Most digital cameras will notify you that they are focus ready by a blinking light, on screen indicator or a noise. Confirm that your digital camera has locked onto your desired target before pressing the shutter release button. Some digital cameras may have trouble focusing on subjects easily. If this happens use an auto focus mode to produce a better digital photo. <br /> Prevent your digital camera from shaking. Shaky hands or sudden movement will definitely produce a blurry digital photo. When holding your digital camera, make sure the viewfinder is firmly pressed against your face before snapping a digital photo. If you do not have image stabilization on your digital camera, then think about investing in a tripod. This will allow you to steady your digital camera for the perfect shot. <br /> Make sure the digital image is definitely a blurry one and not just a soft image. On many occasions soft images are mistaken for blurry ones. Soft images occur often with digital cameras. When printing these images, the softness rarely shows through. You will be able to easily edit these photos by sharpening the details for a better printing experience. <br /> Take your time. Instead of rushing to take a digital photo, set aside enough time to shoot your image. Hurrying up will not produce an excellent digital photo. You don't need to be overwhelmingly slow when taking the photo, but try your best not to take a hasty one.

When i use my digicam during daytime, the picture seems so very bright that u can't even notice some picture of it...what should i do???


Digital cameras have White Balance settings which make the image brighter or work with certain light conditions.

Try to look for it in your camera settings and just put it in AUTO mode then enjoy taking pictures again.

When taking pictures they come out blurrie i try


Turn on your flash! Even in good lighting, shoot with the flash on. This will make your exposure shorter, and there will be less opportunity for movement of the camera or the subject to blur the photo.

I take out door photos during day time,Iam getting white screen.


First make sure the mode selector dial is set to the red camera without an M next to it (ie you're in Auto mode and NOT in manual mode). If so...

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, 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 the following for further info and a simple fix that may help:

Now the A410 is not capable of taking 15 second exposures as recommended for the fix. Instead try setting the camera to manual mode, turn off the flash, got to a darkened room, and take a picture. Open the battery door while the red and yellow light are flashing. If after many tries this does not work, then consider trying Fix #5a on the site. But do so with the camera turned off and the lens retracted to lessen the chance of damaging the lens mechanism.

My camera displays a "white screen" when i take photos "outdoors" or during daytime outside


Are you sure that you are in full "auto" mode when you are taking your pictures? Make sure that the mode selector is set to the first red camera (without the M) right next to the little blue arrow.

If you already are in full auto, 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, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

Your camera is not capable of taking 15 second exposures. Instead try putting it in manual mode, turn off the flash, take it in a darkened room, take the picture, and open the battery door while the red and yellow lights are blinking. Give it several tries, but note that the chances may be very slim for success as the shutter symptoms suggest that it is stuck open.

Hand signal coming up when trying to take picture


The hand icon means you don't have enough light to take a hand-held photo. You need to either increase the light (take the photo in brighter light, such as outdoors in the sun), use flash, or a tripod.

Some cameras have a mode that will let you shoot anyway, but most people are not happy with the blurry photos they get when shooting when the camera warned them with the hand icon so you are better off not using that over-ride mode.

Using a 70/200 lense with a annon 40D at a football game at night


to get good pictures you have to stay at least at the same speed as the aperture:
100mm - 1/100sec mini
200mm - 1/200sec mini
if you are in automatic mode, the camera says" there is no enough light, the aperture is max (f:2.8 or f:4) so i shut down the speed." and go against the rule. you have several solution:
1 you stay in automatic mode and take yor photos with a tripod.
2 you put your camera in speed pririty, with the good speed, and try not to moove during the shoot (you can put your camera on something stable)
3 you tune up the iso

Blurry black & white photos


Are you saying this problem *only* happens when you put the camera into black and white mode? If so, you could simply shoot everything in color, and then convert the images to black and white after transfering them to your computer. The free photo organizer from Preclick (www.preclick.com) will do this for you and more.
