My camera is taking dark pic, how can i clear that up

You could raise the ISO setting or you could set the "exposure compensation" to a higher number.

I have a Nikon D90 camera with a 180 - 300 lens that I use to shoot photos of my boys playing football. I have always had crystal clear shots from the stadium. Now that my boys are playing Varsity at...

Obviously, shooting the pics at night requires a longer exposure. If you haven't changed any settings from your daylight pics, then your camera is probably setting a slower shutter speed to compensate for less light in the stadium. You need to raise the ISO setting. You could get a faster lens, experiment with both aperture priority and shutter proiority, etc. But try the ISO first...that may do the trick.

I turn on my Nikon CoolPix it starts to turn on & off by itself?

You can change the ISO in the setup menu...I suggest auto ISO. You can also go to "reset" in the setup menu to try to get back to factory default settings.

Need more information regarding your question.

If your error is about your images being brighter/darker whenever you shoot at different locations, then this is a normal feature when using Auto setting for your ISO. The exposure will always slightly change whenever the ISO changes.

If your problem is about too much noise, then this is a normal problem when you use very high ISO on the D80. You can remedy this by setting the max ISO to 400 but you will not be able to take non-flash pics in darker environments.

If your problem is the ISO levels do not go up a certain setting, change your MAX ISO setting to a higher number like 1600. At this setting, the pictures will be grainy and have a lot of noise so I recommend you convert the output to black and white.

Press left on the multiselector (marked with a one-handed clock). Once the self-timer has been selected, you start it by pressing the shutter release button.

Grainy photos in sunlight

Your ISO is probably set too high? to change iso press the fn (function) button and select the right option (with the right arrow) to go to the iso menu. Then use the up and down arrows to change the iso setting. I don't go higher then 400, and in the beach you could set it way down to 100.  Don't point the camera in the direction of the sun as this can wash out the photo. A filter would help somewhat.

Outdoor pictures reveal white on LCD screen

The sensor for the auto-ISO may be working incorrectly. Try changing the ISO manually for different light modes. You can also try to change the white balance of the LCD. -Setting the white balance: 1. Set the camera to still image mode 2. Press the "Set" button 3. "White Balance" should be the current selection 4. Press the "Flower" button or "Flash" button to move through the available options for white balance 5. Press "Set" again when change appropriately - Setting the ISO: The higher the ISO value, the less light the camera needs to make an exposure, allowing the same exposure to be achieved with higher shutter speeds or smaller apertures. In a digital camera, higher ISO value allows higher shutter speed, at the expense of mottled or grain appearing in the final picture. 1. Set the camera to Still Image mode. 2. Press the "Set" button. 3. Press the "scn" or "timer" button to select ?ISO?. 4. Press the "Flower" or "Flash" button to select the desired setting. 5. Press the "set" button to select. 50/100/200 In the same lighting condition, the higher the ISO value is, the faster the shutter speed will be. I hope this helps.
