How do you find the white balance on this camera?


This camera does not have a customizable white balance. It does have some presets -- they are:

  • Auto (default)-automatically corrects white
balance. Ideal for general picture taking.

  • Daylight-for pictures in natural lighting.
  • Tungsten-corrects the orange cast of household
light bulbs. Ideal for indoor pictures under tungsten or
halogen lighting without flash.

  • Fluorescent-corrects the green cast of fluorescent
lighting. Ideal for indoor pictures under fluorescent
lighting without flash.

To access them, press the [Menu] button and look for White Balance -- the icon is a Sun and Light Bulb symbol.

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).

When shooting indoors and room lights are on pictures come out with yellow cast what seems to be the problem


Indoor lights are yellow...we just don't notice it. Usually modern cameras can correct for that using "auto white balance". If they don't, then you have to change the white balance manually to match the type of light source. Check your manual.

Having problems with quality of pictures taken inside....they all have a "yellow" color tint to them. Any suggestions? Camera takes excellent outside pictures.


Check your white balance setting. Indoor incandescent bulbs have a yellow color that we normally aren't aware of but shows up in a photo. Usually, when you have your camera set on auto white balance, the camera can correct for it but if it can't, you can set the white balance for tungsten/indoor light.

My pictures are over exposed,too much light.Faces are pale white,what setting should I change? pictures were taken indoors.


If using flash try turning down the ISO setting to 100. Also change the White balance to the Indoor setting if you cannot manually set that.

When pictures are taken outside during the day they are unclear with some white horizontal lines and when taken indoors its ok.tried everything the manual said but still no changes


White shadow or white lines may occur if the light was too bright when you take the picture, especially in strong sun light. Have you turn off the flash light when you taking those picture ? If you haven't, then you should try to turn off your camera flash light manually. And I must remind you not to take a picture with your lens faced the sun light or other light (lamp etc) directly. Even if you take a picture outdoors, try to make your lens shaded by something, you can even use your own shadow to shade them.

Hope this help and be kind to rate please.

My Canon G11 - most indoor pics have a strong yellow-orange hue. What can I do to correct this or is the camera broken?


Light from ordinary light bulbs has a strong yellow-orange cast, which our eyes tend to adjust for without thought. Check the white balance setting on your camera. This is to adjust the camera for the color of the light, to try to make white come out white, hence the name "white balance." Set the white balance to incandescent (light-bulb icon) for indoor shooting under light bulbs, or to automatic to let the camera take its best attempt.

Try experimenting with the white balance setting. Taking pictures in bright sunlight with the incandescent setting will give your pictures a very blue cast, making things look a little colder. There are other settings, such as flourescent.

Yellow cast to indoor pictures, when I take pictures at my kids baskteball games and other indoor events, concerts, etc, the picture has a yellow tone to it, like the light is not sufficient, but it is...


Hello,

This is most likely the White Balance, if the pictures look yellow under artificial light.

I cannot find a manual online so I do not know if you can set the white balance yourself.
If you can, set it to artificial light. Remember to set it back for normal shooting.

You might like to try the Indoor Scene Mode, this should set it for you.

Hope this helps.

Lousy, yellow indoor pictures


Have you tried setting the white balance to match your indoor lighting condtions (flourescent or incandescent indoor lighting)? If not, try it. You didn't mention what model camera you have, but look in your manual. It should mention how to adjust white balance.

White screen when taking pictures in daylight


Go to the menu screen for LCD contrast and adjust, it sounds like it is to high. Kinda like a back light for a plasma screen.
