Question about Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens

1 Answer

My camera is not letting light in when I take a

All of a sudden one day, my camera stopped letting light in when I took a picture and all my images since then have been really dark. I have to bump up the white balance and ISO really high to get any light in. It does not appear to be the lense, as it does this with both of my lenses and nothing appears to be broken on or inside the camera. I have also reset everything and that did not help. What could be wrong?

Why are my photos taken with my iPhone 5 suddenly coming out off color and very dark?


First, I suggest you look into the camera lens. Perhaps it is not clean? Next, how does the preview image look before snapping the picture? If the preview is good then the problem may be in automatic post-process settings.

Canon 60D playback images turning up black


Did you switch to Tv (shutter mode) and took pictures for several seconds? like in the dark? Because saving the picture can take as long as the shutter time was.
Before panic. (Actually you never should panic) check your camera in automatic mode. And make sure you did not select any power save action, that puts your display on dark while shooting.
But always be sure your battery is charged and check its capacity. In the menu yo can check under the wrench symbol, when you select Battery info. Page 268 of the manual.
Working with a bad battery can damage the camera in the end.

The image looks dark


The finished image looks dark or it looks dark in the viewfinder?
If your question is "the image looks dark" in the viewfinder my answer is it's an F4.5 lens so letting less light into the viewfinder and it will look dark. The big difference will be seen if you are coming from lets say a Nikon 50mm F1.8 which is two stops faster then your F4.5.
If it's the finished picture after you taken it I'd say you underexposed the shot.

Problems turning on OlympusSP-350


Hi. Mine did the same thing one day. I took the memory card and batteries out and let it sit for a few minutes. I then replaced the batteries, but it said, "batteries empty." I then replaced the batteries with silver and blue energizers. It powered right up. I was afraid it was a gonner, but it's been fine since.

You probably have "bracketing" turned on. In your menu settings, search for bracketing and make sure it is off.
