Re: color distorting

I am having the same issue. Every picture I take is greean and red and looks psychedelic. I do not use the camera constantly so I am not sure what happened. It's only 2 years old.

What is it called when you are able to choose a color so that when you shoot in blk and white only one color is picked up ex., blk and white except for the red flower in a girls hair

The picture was taken twice. One in color the othher in black & white. You then edit the color photo to remove everything except the rose. Then you combine the two photos to make one final picture.

My Olympus x-42 doesn't take a picture. View from monitor is perfect but when I take a picture, all there is is a white screen

Some symptoms of a defective CCD (Charge Coupled Device) include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

When a picture is taken, the CCD is struck by light coming through the camera's lens. Each of the thousands or millions of tiny pixels that make up the CCD convert this light into electrons. The number of electrons, usually described as the pixel's accumulated charge, is measured, then converted to a digital value.

I have lost the instructions and have forgotten how to change the mode to get black and white pictures.

Hi katiedooley2,

You would most probably find this setting in the picture settings option of your camera , where you have the option to choose the color type it has normal mode with natural colors or cyan mode , along with gray scale or black and white mode.

You can use activate this option and you would have your pictures being taken in grayscale or black and white.

Displays green color image/screen

When did you get this message? It seems like you have set the White Balance of the camera wrong. Set it to Auto White Balance to eliminate this problem. Use Daylight White Balance when shooting in bright daylight so as to eliminate any color cast in the image.

Distorted color on image

You might have "color filter" settings. Turn the digital filters off. Here is what manual at p72 says. "You can take pictures using digital filters. The filters consist of color filters such as red, blue and green, a soft filter that produces a fuzzy effect. Color filters Eight colors, black-and-white, sepia, red, pink, violet, blue, green and yellow, are provided for the color filters. When you select a color filter in the Digital Filter mode, the display on the LCD monitor is filtered with the selected color, and the pictures are taken in that color."
