    Spots would indicate a dirty CCD sensor, did you buy this new?

I recommend returning it. Nikon's QC may be lacking these days

Why is the white background not white?


This is a common problem. The metering and light balance are the reasons that you are having problems achieving good results with your photos.

All cameras on the auto cycle are calibrated for 18% gray. Another words a photo of all white results in 18% gray. A photo of black results in 18% gray. The camera adjusts the shutter speed and aperture to achieve an average light level of 18%. That is why photos of snow always appear gray. To compensate for this characteristic of the cameras an 18 % gray panel is held in front of the camera and than the settings are set.manually. The metering in the camera is now locked and using the same light levels objects will be in their natural level.

A second problem is the white balance. Using flash avoids some of these problems. Adjusting the camera for source lighting type will help the most. The light balance is the cause of discoloration of the objects in the photo. Usually the camera white balance can be set for auto, incandescent, fluorescent, outdoor or flash,

Use a manual setting if it is available on you camera, You need to adjust the settings until you get acceptable results. If the photo is dark add light by reducing the aperture number to a lower number allowing more light. After the aperture is open wide(lowest number) increase the exposure to longer time. With very low light levels a tripod may be necessary.. After doing this once record the numbers for next time.

Photograph of a pink sunrise came out grey


Shooting, with a lens pointing to the sun is always risky for the camera. It could damage the sensor. But with a ND filter, perhaps this could. Then when you are shooting in automatic and just jpg, the camera will try to set the white balance, so the sun comes out bright white. It was the brightest spot in the frame. If you shot RAW you could be better off, because the camera did not change anything to the white balance in rte RAW picture. At least you would be able to restore the colour in a photo editor program like Lightroom or Photoshop RAW.
In extreem light conditions, never use the camera in auto. Only when the camera offers scene mode for that condition, you could use that.

Change Photos from Black and White to Coloured


Unless you want to colorize them by hand, there's no way to add color to black and white photos. Given a black and white photo showing a person in a gray dress, how do you know whether the dress was blue or red or some other color?

Grey spot on photo


NOISY PICTURES One of the major difference between a consumer digital camera and a digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) is that the former produces images with a lot of noise when using high ISOs and long exposure times, and the latter is practically noise-free (though high ISO performance varies depending on camera manufacturer and model). Noise is apparent by the presence of color speckles where there should be none. For example, instead of a blue sky, you notice faint pink, purple and other color speckles amongst the otherwise blue sky.

When I take photos with my finepix s1000fd the colours are hardly ever accurate, it will pick out some colours and make them very bright, but the rest of the photo will be a greyish colour. Some photos...


Hello - You will find this happens mostly in Automatic mode which needs a better spread of light.
The grey background is when another color has been highlighted/increased and the background get saturated out (usually the sky goes grey) or the clouds go white.
Try going into Scenic settings ..ie.. vivid , sunset , soft etc and keep that setting open while taking shots.
or -- Use a Neutral density filter where there are bright and dark spots in frame.
or - Use the aep button to increase a stop before taking a picture..
AND -- get into S or A or Manual mode .
I called Fuji Tech support UK and they admitted the S1000 cameras where 1 stop low on light in the fully auto mode, because it was easier to AD light afterwards in software,

Photos are coming out with a blue tinge. Out on the harbour where the water is a greeny blue and the sky grey to blue, all photos seem to have a blue tinge. ISO is 100. Photographed some trees and these...


Check the white balance settings. If the photos where taken in the high midday sun this is the high UV content in the air. Set you white balance to Cloudy and see what that does. Also fit a UV lens to the front of the lens if haven't already.

Spot on every shot


Your sensor may have gotten dust on it to confirm this, set camera to a small aperture eg. f22 and take a picture of a white page then set camera to a large aperture eg f3.3 ant take the same picture. If it is dust you will see the spot on the shot taken at f22 and not the one taken at f3.3. This can be solved by having the sensor cleaned. If the gray spot is on both images you most likely have a damaged sensor

Undo White Balance Sony F707


If you have Photoshop: Layer>New adjustment Layer>Levels Use the middle eyedropper tool and click on something in your photo that should be gray/dark gray. Or: Use the white eyedropper (far right eye dropper) and click on something in the photo that you know is (or should be) white. You can try the gray first, then the white.

White spots


In addition, flash lighting dust doesn't make a white spot, but a fuzzy whitish circle (out of focus). The image underneath is still visible, but distorted. These are definitely not flash reflecting on dust.

Spots on image when using built-in Speedlight flash


As is common in many compact digital cameras where the built-in flash is very close to the lens strange reflections can appear in images under certain conditions. Particulate matter in the air in front of the lens (between the camera and subject) such as water vapor (as in a cloudy day), smoke, dust or other items can reflect light directly into the lens causing neutral colored white/grey semi-transparent spots to appear in the image. In extreme examples there may be many of these spots in an image or there may be only one per image. Also, since these spots are completely random they will move or disappear from image to image. For example, if two images are shot consecutively with the same camera settings one image may have spots while the other is clean. To avoid these spots: When possible, avoid photographing in smoky, dust, or cloudy areas Do not use the camera's flash in locations such as above Use an external Speedlight flash if a flash is needed Review images on the camera and re-shoot if spots are visible Cleaning the lens will not have an effect on these spots, as the particles that cause this are not on the lens itself.
