I get overexposed daylight outdoor pictures, unless I zoom in and avoid wide angle views.

    If I point and click say the sea and beach, I get complete white - nothing but white. Naturally, I have deleted all those white images

  • IftekharSa Jun 02, 2009

    I used exposure compensation and set it at - 2.0 - it WAS set at zero.

    I have to wait till morning to see how it goes though.

    Meanwhile, I am attaching a bleached white photo, as uou first suggested.

    And thank you so much!


  • IftekharSa Jun 03, 2009

    I tried exposure compensation at minus 2 - the problem persists. What to do?

  • cymruchris May 11, 2010

    When you say overexposed outdoor pictures - do they contain a high proportion of sky in them? Can you post an example so we can see what you mean? (You can add small pictures to your reply)

Ok - thanks. From what I can see, the Kodak you're using has mainly Auto modes. However within the Auto modes, there is something called Exposure Compensation. If you already know about this let me know. If however you don't, it may be that you, or someone else using the camera has inadvertantly set the camera to over-expose the shot.

The Kodak online guide shows how the screen will look if you have inadvertantly set it - and it's easy to re-adjust. It normally goes to a maximum of +2 to -2. I'm guessing you have it set to +1 or +2?

Kodak guide

If it's set to 0 however, that would indicate that maybe your camera has an internal meter fault. You could then try setting the above to -2 - and see what impact that has on your photographs. In normal situations, this would make a well-exposed photograph very dark.

Try the above and let us know how you get on. Good luck.

    Option 4 on the Kodak guide - then 'Using Exposure Compensation'

  • cymruchris Jun 02, 2009

    Hi - Thanks for the update.

    No photo though? Maybe try again with tomorrows results.

    Has this only happened recently - or since new?

    When you take tomorrows photographs - maybe you'd be kind enough to try something for me.

    When you are ready to take your photograph - point the camera slightly more down than you normally would - so there's no sky in the picture. Press the button to take the photo halfway - not enough to actually fire the camera off - just enough to hold pressure on the button, and then lift up the camera to the normal position, with sky in it, whilst holding the button, then press it all the way. (Not sure if your camera has this feature to set exposure by holding in the activation button halfway - but lets see if it does)

    Then either resize your photos to fit on here - or upload them to a photobucket account or similar, and post the link to the image here for me to take a look.

    Not sure I'll get you the answer - but two heads are better than one!

    Just a side thought - how many memory cards do you own? If more than one, do you get the same effect on all memory cards? Have you tried swapping the memory card for another?

  • cymruchris Jun 03, 2009

    Have you tried swapping a memory card?

    Otherwise - if you've tried adjusting the exposure compensation to -2 and it's still over-exposing - based on the fact it's a fully auto camera, with no further option of manual control, I'd suggest that if it's under guarantee, to return it for repair. If outside of guarantee it's probably time for a new camera.

    If you go back to the link I gave earlier - for Kodak - there's a link for live help on the left hand side - which depending on the time of day should be available. Maybe run the problem through with them - and see if it's a known issue. If it's a known problem - they may have a solution.

Someone asked me to take photos with my Nikon D90. I have the 18-105mm lens that I got with it. Is this able to take 'wide angle' photos?? I know there are special lenses made specifically for wide...


The 18-105mm lens at the 18mm end of the zoom range is a pretty fair wide-angle lens. Look through the viewfinder and turn the zoom ring (the big wide ring at the front of the lens) one way and then the other. The 105mm end is the view that looks like you're using binoculars, the 18mm end is the view that looks like you're using binoculars backward.

Hello, the problem that you explain could easily be caused by an improper "ISO" setting. When you go to your camera's menu, look for the ISO setting and put it back on "auto". It's probably on 800 or higher now, which will cause everything to be overexposed.

No photo in daylight in outdoor


You'll need to first check what setting you have the camera on. Sometimes, this can make all the difference. Change the setting to auto. Or, if you are familiar with manual settings, change the camera mode to manual...then change the ISO

Optical zoom


Hey needacamera,
The range of an optical zoom lens refers to how wide angle to telephoto the lens covers. An example of a 6x optical zoom would be an 18mm-108mm lens, which covers wide angle to telephoto. An example of a 3x zoom lens would be an 18mm-54mm lens, which would provide a capability of capturing images from wide angle to normal views. To calculate the x factor of an optical zoom you would divide the largest number by the smallest number on your zoom. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
