To check if you really have a problem, first switch the main dial to the auto setting (the green camera logo) then again shoot some pictures. Only if they are good, try some other settings, if you know how to use them.

When you say 'played back', do you mean viewed on the camera screen, or after downloading to your computer ? If the latter, it could be to do with the software you are using - try FastStone.

My photos are far too bright and look almost white. I have tried adjusting the brightness, but it does not make a difference.


Turn down the ISO setting and lower the "exposure compensation" setting until you get satisfactory pics.

Help in setting the color mode to take black & white pics


Press MENU. Use left/right to select the Capture tab. Use up/down to select "Color Mode".

In general, I suggest shooting in color. A photo-editing program gives you much more control over the conversion to black-and-white, allowing you to adjust brightness, contrast, etc.

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.

Pictures that I take come out very white/bright. you cannot tell details. I have changed batteries and have the setting on auto.


Double-check your flash settings. You mentioned the camera is in Auto mode, but the flash has separate settings from the camera's shooting mode. With the camera in shooting mode AUTO check the Flash settings (Auto, Red-Eye Reduction, Fill-In, Off) It may be set to 'fill' causing your photos to be too bright.

Also, depending on how close you are to your subject the flash may not be needed. Using the flash when too close to your subject (less then 3 ft.) will cause bright/white photos. Turn the flash OFF if you are taking macro or photos closer then 3ft.

If neither of these fix your problem, turn the flash mode OFF, and camera shooting mode to AUTO and in a naturally well lit area, take a photo, if the photo is still too bright, you may have something mechanically wrong with your camera.

The LCD screen is hard to see. What should I do?


If the LCD screen is too bright or too dark, adjust the LCD Brightness setting in the Setup Menu. If you are shooting photos outdoors in bright light, move the joystick to the icon showing the sun over shaowed area to turn on Outdoor mode and make the LCD screen easier to see in bright light.
