Noise problem?


There is nothing wrong with the camera. You're looking at the highlight view of your pictures. These are the bright areas in your picture that have been overexposed and thus all detail has been "blown-out." If you look at those areas in Photoshop, you should see that they are pure white.

Usually, the correct fix is to reduce exposure so as to preserve highlight detail. This runs the risk of losing shadow detail at the other end, but loss of detail in shadows is generally considered more acceptable than losing detail in highlights. Of course, sometimes you want to lose highlight details, just as sometimes you want your subject to go dark and show up only as a silhouette. That's an artistic decision, far beyond the scope of this question.

Getting back to the view on the back of the LCD, you can press up/down on the multiselector to get different views of the current picture. One shows you the histogram (which is another whole different topic), another shows you technical details about the photo, and one will show you the photo with nothing else. Pick the one you want. Play with them. Read the technical details.

Back in the old days, photographers carried notepads and pencils so they could jot down exactly this information. One of the advantages of digital photography is that this information is recorded automatically and stored with the images.

Image playback


Are you saying that part of the picture displayed on the camera screen flashes black? If so this is normal as far as I have read. It shows there is too much light on that part of that image. You can alter it not to show it flashing.

Ripples appear in the image when photographing an object with fine plaids or stripes. How can I fix that?


When you are shooting a subject that has a fine regular pattern such as stripes or plaids, a ripple that does not exist on the subject sometimes appears in the image. An example of this can be seen in the pictures below. The photo on the left shows the fine plaids pattern on the shirt. The photo on the right is a distance shot of the same shirt. In this photo, you can see a ripple that is not visible in the photo on the left. This effect is called the Moire effect. Why does the Moire effect occur? Digital cameras and camcorders are equipped with imaging devices such as CCD sensors and CMOS sensors that have pixels that are finely aligned horizontally and vertically that convert light into electronic signals. When the pixels and the pattern on the subject overlap slightly misaligned, an interference pattern occurs and a ripple that does not exist on the actual subject may appear. This is the Moire effect. Look at the image above. This image shows red cross-stripes and black cross-stripes overlapped slightly misaligned. When you look at the entire image, you find a ripple that differs from either of the patterns. This is the same principle that causes the Moire effect. Preventing the Moire effect You can reduce this effect by changing the distance, zoom setting or the angle of the image. If you are using a camera with manual focusing, the Moire effect can be reduced by simply changing the focus slightly. Reference You may find another Moire effect displayed on the LCD of the camera. As this is caused by the aligned pixels on the LCD, this effect does not necessarily appear in pictures you have taken.
