Make sure the ISO is set on the correct exposure for daylight.. try say 100 or 200 if its set for flash at say 60 nor 30 and you try to use it in brighter or daylight it will overexpose.

Camera makes overexposed pictures wiht lines can this be a software problem ?


Nope, this is a hardware problem and the camera needs to be worked on. Notice how your display works fine but the finished product exhibits the anomaly. The recording end is messed up.

Finepix E550 -suddenly very grainy photos and over exposed?


Have you checked what ISO you have selected here?
Graininess and over exposure can be caused by selecting the wrong ISO ( which in film days was ASA ( film speed) The average ISO should be 100 some early models allowed ISO 64 or similar. Having it set at 400 -800 ISO can also have the pics come out grainy. But not nescessarily overexposed unless you point directly at the light source as these ratings are for low light/movement situations. The video mode usually sets itself up differently to picture mode. The fact that you say your video is OK says there is nothing wrong with the lens or sensor, just the settings you have initially chosen to have autoed.

Some of my pics come out every white how do i fix that .when i take pics they come out very white but all of them do that.


If they are white that means they are getting over exposed. You may have your camera in a manual mode that is set to overexpose the pictures. You can set it in an automatic mode to take care of this. The other possibility is that you have a exposure adustment that can be set at either + for brighter or - for darker. It should be set at 0. Sometimes this is a EF option on the camera. Hopefully this helps.

Nikkor 50 1.8 overexposes


You probably have oils on the aperture blades and they do not close to the F stop you set as quickly as required, thus causing the over exposure. Easy to pinpoint: sent the aperture to full open (F1.8) and use appropriate shutter speeds as determined by the camera (in manual mode), if the picture does not over expose, then the problem is with the oiled contaminated aperture blades. Have it cleaned.

Background is overexposed


So, the problem doesn't seem to be the flash if the actual subject in the foreground is exposed properly. My guess is that the background is being lit by another light source. Typically, your camera uses a flash for dark areas or what it gauges as a dark area. This doesn't adjust the background for additional light sources. For example, if you're standing outside and there's a tree covering someone that you're taking a picture of your flash will adjust to "properly" light that individual. However, because the flash was used for the main subject, the background is actually now overexposed. The overexposed background will show up as a brightly lit area because the camera had to adjust for the foreground. This will actually reverse itself when it's dark out - meaning if the background and foreground are dark, the flash will expose the foreground, but the background will be black. Hopefully, that helps you understand lighting and exposure. Now, to fix this problem when shooting, you would need to consider several options - 1. SLR camera with aperture and f-stop settings as well as compensation controls. This will allow you to control every element of the exposure, but you still need to be aware of the lighting behind the "subject" to properly expose your shots. 2. backlighting compensation - common settings on both SLR and point and shoot cameras that makes auto lighting conversions for backlighting and other common lighting issues. Test whatever options are on your camera to see what works best for your specific problem. 3. Photoshop retouching - you may take one shot with your subject exposed properly and a second shot with the background then merge the images together. 4. using a tripod to shoot without using the flash - this may give you the closest exposure to exactly what you see when looking at your subject.

All white pic is shown on LCD when used in Manual Mode with delayed shutter timer


You are massively overexposing the picture. Manual mode means you have to set the exposure manually. You need to adjust the settings so that the light meter reads somewhere around the zero mark.

M mode is most useful for flash photography where you want a certain level of ambient illumination in the picture as well.

If you want some control over the camera but don't want to worry about exposure too much, use A and S modes. The manual will explain all of these modes.
