SOURCE: white pictures when taking outside

Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Always check the batteries first but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty.
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Thanks

When pictures are taken outside during the day they are unclear with some white horizontal lines and when taken indoors its ok.tried everything the manual said but still no changes


White shadow or white lines may occur if the light was too bright when you take the picture, especially in strong sun light. Have you turn off the flash light when you taking those picture ? If you haven't, then you should try to turn off your camera flash light manually. And I must remind you not to take a picture with your lens faced the sun light or other light (lamp etc) directly. Even if you take a picture outdoors, try to make your lens shaded by something, you can even use your own shadow to shade them.

Hope this help and be kind to rate please.

When i take a picture with the flash, it has a yellow tint to it. Why?


Most likely your white balance setting needs to be adjusted. You didn't specify the model of your camera, so I can't tell you exactly how to change it (your manual should say).
Your camera should have several settings:
"A" or "Auto"
"Daylight/Sun"
"Tungsten" or "Indoors" or "Incandescent"
"Fluorescent"

and possibly also:
"Flash"
"Cloudy" or "Shade"

When taking flash pictures, the "Flash" setting should be best. If you don't have a flash setting, then "Daylight" or "Sun" will be the best.

Human eyes adjust quickly and easily to different colors of light, but cameras see light as it is, so indoor light will look yellow, outside bluish, fluorescent greenish, etc. So digital cameras shift the colors in the image to try to make white objects appear white like they would to your eye. But sometimes they mess up and don't get it quite right. That is where the manual white balance settings come in. If you play with these settings, then you will find you can improve the color quality of many of your pictures.

White cloudy spots on my images - a recent problem


If these are like "bubble" spots and they appear in different places on each photo, I'm guessing you're shooting flash pictures indoors. The spots are dust particles in the air reflecting the flash. This happens on small point-and -shoots because the flash is almost in the same plane as the lens.

Outside pictures turn white


Check the white balance. This should be under menu. When you are outside in sunlight, change is to the sun icon, ect.
Are the exposures very long? If they are, they need to be shorter in high light, and longer in lowlight situations.

Problem with Olympus Zuiko 14-45


Hey montenegro1,
What it sounds like is that the problem is not your lens at all it is the contrast of the scene you’re taking a picture of. The contrast between white and black in outdoor scenes is generally too high for either film or digital sensors to capture accurately. The reason your images are almost all white is probably that the camera is overexposing your images. The camera is metering of the dark areas in the scene and trying to expose the image so they are what is called middle gray which is exactly halfway between absolute black and absolute white. To fix this I would purposely underexpose my images by either setting a faster shutter speed than suggested by the cameras meter or a smaller aperture. To do this you are going to have to be in full manual mode unless your camera has exposure compensation. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Outside pictures are white


I had the same problem, but I fixed it for now. What happened was that part of the shutter got stuck, so it was taking in too much light from outside. Indoor pictures looked ok, unless there was motion. You can see if this is the same problem by looking in your lens and zooming in-see if anything looks weird; you should just see a reddish circle in the center of the lens. I wouldn't really recommend disassembling your lens like I did, but if you want to, I can try to help.
