SOURCE: Color Quality PINK

Hi, I had the same problem with the Canon A70.It turned pink and when aimed at bright light, the picture turns bright. I called up the Canon service centre and they told me that the problem was with the processing of the image and the connector. They told me to bring to the centre and the repair is free of charge despite no more warranty left. My advise is to bring it to the repair centre.

SOURCE: black screen cant take photos

I had this problem today with my S1 IS. I did a google search for similar symptoms and found that many digital camera models made between 2002 and 2004 have a CCD issue. I called Canon's Customer Support (1-800-828-4040) and they offered to fix the problem for free. Hope this helps!

That means that lens are either misplaced or dirty inside.

The lens assembly must be taken apart at a repair shop to fix this problem.

Hello! I have problems with my flash. Untill yesterday, when I take photos they make multiple light on exposure objects, but not anymore. Now, wheni I turn on automatically flash sometimes it not working,...


Perhaps you only changed the settings. As long as you are on automatic, and don't force the flash off, the flash should work when needed.
The multiple flash you mention, is the flash used to avoid red eyes.
With the first flash(es) the eye closes the pupil, so ref;action of the retina is minimal.
Sometimes the camera also uses the returning flash light to fine tune the focus, if on auto focus.
Just check if the camera is in the setting you always used. Just check if you have the best results with this setting.

Making your own visual effects without special equipment


Most computers today come with a video editing software that at least has basic functions that one would need to create many different kinds of visual effects. All you need for the two most common visual effects are a computer with a movie maker and a digital camera that shoots video. The most commonly used visual effects are stop-motion and Jump cut editing.

To create stop-motion of say your pen opening itself you would take a series of photos with a slight change in position in every shot. Then at the end you take all the shots and play them together at about .5-1 second per image and it will look like the object is moving on its own. This is particularly useful for when you want to make a person look like they are jumping into an object or flying.

Jump cut, is the most commonly used technique for visual effects. What you do is film the person or object that you want to disappear, then stop filming remove them from the camera's view and the continue filming. When the two shots are played together as one then it appears that the person or object disappears. You can use this technique to make someone appear and disappear anywhere in your shots.

My fuzzy photos are hard to avoid. How do I take a clear picture?


There are three main reasons photos don't come out clear.
The first is focus. If your photo has something in the near foreground and something in the distant background, you may not get both in focus. This is not as much of a problem with compact point&shoot cameras simply because their field of focus is so deep.
The second cause is subject motion. If you take a photo of a moving object, that object may blur. This is the case if moving objects blur but still objects do not.
The third and main cause is camera motion. If you suspect this, try placing the camera on a table or other stable surface, use the self-timer, and take a photo. Compare this photo with one you take holding the camera.

The vertical line can be caused by a very bright object in the image like a lamp or a silver surface reflecting the flash.
The spots are caused by the flash being SO close to the lens. Any object that can reflect the flash reflects it right back at the camera. This is an image problem with most point and shoot digitals. Watch for reflective surfaces and stand at an angle to them. Turn on more lights in the room before using flash. Stand at a slight angle to the image or person you are photographing - don't shoot straight on. (I kneel down and shoot up - makes a good shot too.)
If you are shooting toward the sun, shield the lens from direct sunlight with your hand (Keep your hand out of the picture!)

How do i take the best wedding pictures with ditigal camera


Pictures must be properly framed before you click.
See that you are setting your object against light.
See that you are not too far or too close to the object.
Landscape and Portrait should be properly framed.
A single person half pose will look good in Portrait.
Full group picture of 4 or 5 people looks good in Portrait frame.
Large group fits best in landscape.
Be quick in making choice of poses.
Before the crowd starts pouring in, see that you have finished clicking close ups of bride groom.
All the Best

Blurry picture


What make and model of camera do you have?

In general, you need to make sure you aren't shaking the camera or focusing on something that's too close. Also, you need to have adequate lighting or enable the flash.

If it's a new camera, make sure you have removed any protective stickers on the lens and display.

Many times people move the camera while snapping the picture. Sometimes they don't even know they're moving until later.

Put the camera on a table or other stable, stationary object.
Point the camera at some large object at least five feet away and make sure no other close objects are in view.
If the camera has a timer mode, engage the timer mode and press the button to take a picture. Otherwise, hold the camera steady on whatever it's sitting on and press the button to take a picture.

If the picture is still blurry after a few attempts, then the check the camera lens to see if it's dirty. If it's clean, the camera probably needs to be serviced. If you have a product repair/protection or warranty from a retailer, check with the retailer on how to get it serviced. If not, check the manual and manufacturer's website to see how to get it serviced or repaired.

Kodak DX 6490 Flash


Hello, When taking photos in low light or night time,turn the rotary dial that you use to turn on the camera all the way to the right as far as it will turn.the symbol looks like torso of person with a star above it. this is the night setting,exposure time is increased so you may have to rest camera on solid object to prevent blur.This should do the trick.

Getting great pictures


Here are some tips for taking great pictures with your PDC 700 camera: * Keep the sun behind you or at your side. Avoid having the sun directly overhead. * Use the Flash On setting if there is a light behind your subject. * In low light conditions, use a tripod to avoid camera movement during exposure. * When possible, take pictures when the temperature is between 13C (55F) and 35C (95F). Temperatures outside this range can affect battery performance. * Keep the subject within the flash range of 18 in. to 10 ft. (0.45m to 3m.) * Avoid shooting toward reflective objects, which can result in "hot spots" in your pictures. If you cannot avoid shooting toward reflective objects, use the Flash On setting . * Periodically clean the lens, the LED area on the front of the camera, and the LCD display on the back of the camera. Use a soft, lint-free cloth. Do not use cleaning solutions or chemically treated tissues.

Problem with taking pictures in the shadows


In very simple terms you simply didn't have enough aperture and sensor sensitivity to get the same exposure in the camera as you got with your eyes. The blurring was caused by camera movement while the shutter was open, hand held anything over about 1/15th of a second will be unusable at your shortest focal length. Night photos are hard as they require maximum aperture to let in enough light, and maximum aperture means minimum depth of field so if you are close to the subject it is hard to get all of it in focus. You can increase the ISO setting, but that introduces noise into the shot. As you noticed using flash completely destroys the interesting lighting you were trying to capture. With a proper external flash you would have got a shot as though it were daytime, with a small inbuilt flash you just forced the camera to take a short exposure with a small aperture without adding enough flash light to get the exposure, hence the black picture. As it was a static subject you could have tried a long exposure with the camera on a trpod, possibly using the self timer to start the shot so that you did not touch the camera at all. Another area to take care with is colour/white balance. Your eyes are very good at adjusting for any colour cast or hue in the illumination. You will notice that a sheet of white paper looks white to you inside under normal lights, or inside under flourescent lighting, or outside in daylight . You will find that your camera has to be preset for the colour/temperature of the illumination, to get this right you need to know the spec of the flood lights (halogen, tungsten etc) as it is unlikely the automatic white balance will get this right, being less sophisticated than the human eye/brain combination . You can of course adjust the white balance in who editing software. I hope this helps....
