Turn down the ISO and set the exposure compensation to a lower level. Experiment until you find the setting you like.

Green pictures


Assuming the camera is not faulty the most frequent reason for a green tint is the selection of the wrong white balance in the camera menu. The menu will contain "AWB", "daylight", sometimes represented by a stylised sun logo and indoor. If you use "daylight" for indoor photos the pictures will have a green cast. Select "AWB" for generally acceptable results. If the pictures have a green cast on outdoor pictures you have a problem

Daylight photos come with BLUE filter effect


Artificial light is a different colour than daylight. Our eyes compensate, so we don't notice it much. Most digital cameras can compensate too, but whether they do or not depends on the settings. The setting you want to investigate is color balance. If this is set to daylight, it will give an orange cast to pictures taken in tungsten lighting, and a greenish cast to pictures taken in flourescent light. If it is set to artificial light, pictures taken in daylight will have a bluish cast. The best setting for most people is Auto, if your camera has it. That will let your camera decide, and usually it will get it about right.

MY camera seems to be overexposing all pictures taken , so that I can not take outdoor photos at all and can only take photos inside if I close the drapes and block all natural daylight. It seems as if...


Hello, the problem that you explain could easily be caused by an improper "ISO" setting. When you go to your camera's menu, look for the ISO setting and put it back on "auto". It's probably on 800 or higher now, which will cause everything to be overexposed.

No photo in daylight in outdoor


You'll need to first check what setting you have the camera on. Sometimes, this can make all the difference. Change the setting to auto. Or, if you are familiar with manual settings, change the camera mode to manual...then change the ISO

On record picture smeared like massively over exposed


Make sure the ISO is set on the correct exposure for daylight.. try say 100 or 200 if its set for flash at say 60 nor 30 and you try to use it in brighter or daylight it will overexpose.

My Fujifilm Finepix F810 is taking over exposed photographs in all modes in daylight; this includes Auto mode. Photographs taken in poor light or when using the flash are fine.


This might be a camera spesific issue, Have you had this problem from day one? If you haven't Id suggest you restore your camera to the factory settings.

other than that these problems can be fixed on pc side with a photo editing program.
