Question about Samsung Digimax S1000 Digital Camera

1 Answer

White outdoor pictures

I read the other posts about white pictures. My Samsung Digimax S1000 will take indoor pictures, but outdoor pictures are all white. If the Iris is stuck open as said in other posts and it does not seem to be fixing itself, is there any other thing I can do to fix the problem, other than either shaking it side to side? I see all the things that can cause the problem, but not many ways I can fix the problem. In other words, if it does not fix itself is my camera a goner? Thanks, Bodie815

Re: White outdoor pictures

Theres no better way than to open it and fix the Stucked iris!! You stored your camera for so long in the wrong side or not in standing position. Camera mechanism has oil and grease inside (that is the culprit why your iris is stucked), and will tend to settle in one spot if you will keep it not moving for a long time. But if you really want to fix without opening the unit try to use a black board with different size or adjustable center hole, this or these will serve as your camera iris, the brightest uses the smallest hole, experiment what suits you best.

The Digimax A7 Doesn't work outdoors, because on top of the camera, try taking a picture, but hold your hand on the top of your camera (Cover it) it's light sensitive. On top their is a built in sensor, the Darker it is the darker the picture is, the lighter, the lighter. If you cover it, (Usually on top) It should work fine outdoor, just don' t cover it indoor. Hope this helped. -CA

In my samsung digimax 240 camera, if i take picture in the sunlight I get only some blueish colour and in side the premises I get usual picture. What shall I do to clear this problem? srikanth

This is due to the white balance setting on the camera, if available. Auto is a fine setting.
You can use a "daylight" setting outdoors and an "incandescent" setting indoors. (Sunlight is bluer than filament bulb light, which is more yellowish in color.)
If you cannot change the white balance setting on your camera, you're probably just stuck with this issue. A newer camera would deal with this difference considerably better.

Outside pictures turn white

Check the white balance. This should be under menu. When you are outside in sunlight, change is to the sun icon, ect.
Are the exposures very long? If they are, they need to be shorter in high light, and longer in lowlight situations.
