Question about Casio EXILIM EX-Z1000 Digital Camera

1 Answer

White lines when you take photos in light, but perfect in the dark

If you take the camera outside with no light and take a picture the flash works and the picture is fine... if you take a picture indoors or outdoors in sunlight or under indoor lighting the picture has evenly spaced light lines running across it... it looks like someone took a perfectly exposed picture and with a magic wand painted lines across the picture of over exposure... If you go to a dark room with only a night light on and take a picture everything is fine except he area of the nightlight where again you see those lines of over exposure but only in the area of the actual night light.

Taking picctures outside they come out completly white and inside they are fine.


Not sure what type or model of camera you have. But most camera's have a Mode dial. The best thing to do is to turn that dial to the little green camera logo. That is the automatic mode. If you have chosen the moon and star, you only can make pictures in bad light situations.

Hello
When you look at your pictures are they dark, murky and hard to see? If you took pictures at a wedding, dance recital, theater performance or any indoor event and they came out dark, read on to learn why your pictures are dark, and how to fix this common camera problem.

Many people take pictures of indoor events, only to be unsatisfied with the final outcome of their photos. Although you may have bought the top of the line film or digital camera, there are a few limitations that you need to know about.
To correctly expose your pictures, you camera needs a lot of light. The compact point and shoot varieties adjust for this when you're outside during the daytime, and usually your pictures turn out fine, right? Well, then how come when you take indoor pictures, they sometimes come out too dark? There are two culprits; your zoom function and your flash.
Most compact cameras today offer a zoom function. When I used to work in retail photography sales, the first feature that consumers would ask for is zoom. People love to get close-up pictures without using their feet. Although zoom does bring your subject matter in closer, it also decreases the amount of light that can get into your camera. Essentially, the more you zoom, the less light your camera can receive, and your pictures will be darker.
So, if your taking pictures indoors, in a dark church, gym or other window-less room it is very difficult for your camera to get enough light to properly expose your pictures.
This is when most photographers decide to turn on their flash. The flash on your camera is a great tool to illuminate dark situations that are in close proximity to the camera. Most built-in flash units are designed to allow the light to travel 8-10 feet away in poor quality light and up to 15-20 feet in brighter situations.
What most camera users fail to realize is that although your zoom function is visually bringing you closer to the action, you flash cannot reach that far to illuminate the subject, and your pictures will be dark.
Hope it helps, if so do rate the solution

My fisheye pictures don't come out perfectly circular anymore... on the bottom right corner of all the pictures is a black part that looks like a shadow. what is wrong with it?


Sounds like you have a light leak. At the film plane of your camera the image from the lens is upside down and laterally reversed, so the light leak is at the top left of the film when it's in the camera. If you're shooting for prints look at the strips of negatives. If the edges of the film are affected as well as the picture area then the light leak is at the back. If it's just the picture area then the light leak is through the film gate. If you hold a strip of negatives in the camera with the emulsion towards the lens and the picture upside down and then line up the picture with the film gate this should point to the problem area. All this assumes that your finger wasn't in front of the lens... :-)

Sony DSC W50 Camera - Trouble with Flash


Hi, I guess you are using the automatic mode ( not the "P" mode).
You should enable flash only when there is insuffient light. If you use flash in broad day light, your pic will be whited out. If you dont use flash in dark or low light, your pic will be dark or very dark.
So, when it comes of dark, try enabling the flash. If its still dark, increase the flash compensation (the eV value). If its still dark, increase the ISO number.
Hope these help.
cheers,

White Screen


  1. Upon startup lens emerges but when screen appears it is white whereas it normally displays whatever the lens sees. When the shutter button is pressed the camera will focus and take a white picture which can be deleted. The camera does not flash although flash is set to automatic and photo taken in a dark room. Camera flashes (weakly) with flash set to manual on. Lens is unobstructed and appears to be perfectly normal. Camera was not dropped. Batteries have been changed.
