Question about Nikon D50 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Exposure I have had my D50 for a while. It has just started to take very dark or black pictures inside but continues to take clear pictures outside. The flash appears to be going off. I have also not changed any setting. Can you please help me with this. Thank you.

Re: Exposure

Check exposure compensation settings.
if no value being added/deducted, then the battery would be next, then check for flash setting deviations.
also, check for white balance settings indoors and make sure to use either auto white balance, or select the type of light you have, such as floro's or incandescent.
otherwise, time for service. could also try with different lens.

Nikon d50 takes black picture w/ lens cap off

Sounds like a settings issue please provide more information such as what is your camera set at; ISO, Shutter speed, F-Stop & how are you using it, manual mode. Aperture priority, shutter priority or Auto? I would need this info to further direct you in trouble shooting your issue.

When in playback mode, black patches flash on the screen, only in white areas. Actual pictures are not affected once uploaded and printed but its a very annoying problem! Nikon D50

You're seeing blown-out highlights. These are the portions of your picture that have been so overexposed that they've gone pure white, losing all details. This is generally considered a bad thing, but as the camera doesn't know whether you're deliberately going for that effect, it's merely warning you. The proper fix is to reduce exposure (the easiest way is by using exposure compensation) so as to bring back the lost details. This runs the risk of losing details in the shadows as they go pure black, but this generally isn't as bad as losing details in the highlights. We don't expect to see things in the dark, after all.

That was the long answer. The short answer is to repeatedly press up/down on the multiselector to choose a different view of your picture.

My son dropped it and the flash no longer works. Pictures still look great outside but all inside pictures are super dark. How easily is the flash replaced and what is an estimated cost so I can plan to...

Contact kodak if you want an estimate for repairs.

If your camera can change the exposure, exposure settings. You could just change it so your camera can absorb more light in dark places.

Auto bracketing on a nikon d50

no. if you want more than 3, you will have to manually bracket those beyond the initial three. alternately, you can get a reading for settings then change to manual and continually adjust your aperture setting from whatever under exposure level you want to whatever over exposure level you want.
