SOURCE: When trying to take pictures outside the screen goes blank.

the screen is only adjusting to the brightness of the surroundings through the lens. This camera is working properly but many of the Olympus cameras just are bad with sunlight. Let me know if you have further questions

thanks

Hey libra2,
I would try resetting the camera to its default factory settings. Directions on how to do this are on page 20 of your camera manual, and I have included a link to a PDF download of your camera manual in case you need it. I hope this helps!

SOURCE: When taking pictures outside bright white photos

I suspect that the film speed is set incorrectly. You need to change the value of the ISO from the menu button near the LCD. Scroll through the menu till you come to ISO ( on film cameras this was the old ASA) for low light conditions one pushed the ASA to a higher rating like ASA 400 which was more sensitive to light, thus better pics in a low light environment.

So you need the opposite and so 100 ASA ( ISO) should help you take better pics in bright sunlight.. you can go as low as 64 if your camera has a setting that low.
Apertures will be different for each ISO value selected so when you look through the lens you will see numbers like F16 in the display ir F8 in a lower light situation.
Rule of thumb
Larger the number smaller the aperture ( sharper the image and for bright light situations
Lower the number larger the aperture to let in more light

average light F8 and this is usually the one the flash selects

Use your manual to learn how to manipulate the ISO and your manual selection of apertures. Your photos wilol improve 100%

Vivitar 8225 screen goes blank on sunny day cant see picture i want to take


90% of point and shoot cameras have screens that are difficult or impossible to see in direct sun. You're not alone.

Tip

Get more out of S4000


ISO
Set ISO Setting to FIXED RANGE and set the range to 80-400. The camera produces noise at HIGH ISO setting.
NIGHT SHOTS
Get a small Tripod and you can take wonderful night time shots of city-scapes. Use a tripod and set the camera White Balance to Incandes. Make sure the FLASH is Off Set the Exposure Comp. to -2. Set the self timer and then frame and press the shutter and back away. Some exposures can be 1 second long so a tripod is not optional. Small plastic Joby ones work. If you are holding the camera during the shot it will move with you. A self timer is used to take the photo after you are not touching it.

When you use the flash set the White Balance to Flash (Unless you are outside on a sunny day. then use daylight)

I do NOT recommend using Auto Flash. Set the flash to OFF or turn it to SINGLE BOLT for fill.

When you want to photograph people outside in the sun set the White Balance to Daylight. On sunny days use the Fill Flash (Single Bolt) to fill faces better. Yes good photographers use flash in the direct sun. When cloudy are in shade turn flash off. If the subject has a bright background get close to them and have the flash on.

This camera makes red eye. In most cases when you are taking a photo of people in low light, when the flash supplies most of the light, you will get horrible red eye. You have to edit these later to remove the red eye.

Picture is white


Don't know your specific camera, but it sounds like you have it set on manual (does it have P, A, S, M settings?) with a long shutter speed. This would let in a lot of light outside, and make all of your pictures blurry.
Change your setting to P (program) or Auto (automatic) and see if that helps.

No picture when its sunny outside colour is distorted inside its a jvc digital cam gr-d33ag


On several camera the ccd is sensitive to bright and causes the images to come out very dark or out of focus because the auto focus sensor is being blinded. Try taking pictures with you back towards the sun and try turning off your flash this some times helps out. I hope this helps you and happy photo taking.
