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

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.

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.

Spots in the same place


Sounds like dirt on the sensor. Google the words "cleaning a DSLR sensor" and you will find sites explaining the procedure and places to obtain supplies. It's very easy to do yourself.

Grey cable in dash


Hi again,

Appreciate the update and additional information. If I understand it right, your vehicle then has two connectors at the back: 1 big black/red/gray plug:
  • Yellow/light Green - always ON B+12;
  • Yellow/Black stripe - ACC B+12 goes to the IGN switch;
  • Black - chassis/ground;
  • Blue - remote trigger for add-on amplifier (if connected);
  • Blue/Red stripe - illumination (can go to parklight switch).
and the 2nd smaller gray 8pin plug:
  • White/Red Stripe Right Front +
  • Brown right front -
  • Green Left Front +
  • White/Orange Stripe Left Front -
  • Light Blue/Black Stripe Left Rear +
  • Yellow Left Rear -
  • White/Blue Stripe Right Rear +
  • Light Blue Right Rear -
Cheers.

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.
