Hold the camera steady on the subject for a second or two before snapping the photo with less than half of the picture taken above the horizon (aim low, not high). This should render better pictures.

Hi whenever i try to take photos in the sun like on the beach they come out really dark please help


Please check the light settings and change from high sensitivity to even a manal mode or a bright sunlight setting.
It is possible that the incident light is too powerful and so changes the auto light sensor to give a correction to the CCD so as to make it less brighter.
You can also try and use filters that can reduce the glare but give a better picture contrast.
If not use the manual mode, correct the speed and aperture.

Tip on polarized sunglasses.Polarized sunglasses are a tool you have to fight...


Tip on polarized sunglasses.Polarized sunglasses are a tool you have to fight the effects of sun glare. The design for these sunglasses was first developed and implemented more than 60 years ago. When they were first developed they were used mainly by those in sports, as a way to help protect the player's eyes from sun glare. While they are still heavily used as sports sunglasses, they are now used by anyone, anywhere. Their benefit is in providing you with the ability to see well even in the harshest of sun glare conditions.<br /> How Polarization Works<br />Understanding polarization can help you to see why you need to use polarized sunglasses in any situation in which, there is a lot of sun glare. When sunlight hits a surface, the photons in it are vibrating in one direction, which means it is polarized. When this happens, the light travels away from that place, called the pole-to-pole movement, on that plane. <br />When does it make sense to have polarized sunglasses?<br /> * Light reflects off water with glaring effects (if you have ever been fishing and been unable to see the water, this is why)<br /> * Light reflects off wet pavement in the same matter, which means having them while driving is highly effective<br /> * The snow can also reflect very brightly and polarized lens sunglasses can be helpful at seeing through this<br /> * Sun glares off the car's bumper in front of you in traffic, polarized sunglasses can help<br /> * Light beams off the baseball bat at the game you are pitching, polarized sunglasses can help minimize this<br /><br />Using Polarized Sunglasses Appropriately<br /><br />Because polarization can be blinding in some situations, it is essential to use polarized sunglasses whenever you could be exposed to this light. One thing is unique, though. The color of the lens used in polarized sunglasses can be important, as different types of reflective surfaces are dealt with better with different colored sunglasses.<br /> * Use gray sunglasses for an all purpose type of protection, it provides true color perception, too<br /> * Yellow sunglasses are a good option for blue light, such as driving on a cloudy day<br /> * Red is a good option for virtually all sports activities as it works well when there is a lot of bright sunlight<br /> * Blue polarized sunglasses are an option to use when playing tennis and golfing, especially on a day that is partly cloudy<br /> * Choose brown polarized sunglasses for driving and fishing, as it is a good option for improving the contrast you see<br /> * Go with copper polarized sunglasses when you need good contrast (it provides the maximum amount)<br />Polarized sunglasses are an ideal investment when it comes to protecting

I have a CQ56 compaq and do not know which type of screen to order a matte or a glossy screen.


The Two Kinds of LCD Monitors lens1946174_1208282041macbook-matte-screen1.jpg There are two kinds of modern LCD screens: matte (anti-glare) and glossy. Both have their pros and cons and are a subject of many discussions.

Matte screens don't get glare or reflections on them; however, the same rough surface (polarizer) that reduces the intensity of reflected light results in less contrast and brightness since the light from the LCD screen passes through it. Matte screens diffuse light instead of reflecting it so they might be easier to read outdoors, if the backlight provides enough brightness. You don't have to worry as much about reflections as with a glossy screen.

Glossy screens have vibrant colors and the highest contrast and brightness because they have a smooth, high-gloss surface. As a result, it is often the choice for movies or gaming. However, strong lighting causes glare on these screens which is very annoying and may tire your eyes if you have to stare at it all the time. You can also see reflections on the screen. Some graphics designers may also find the colors inaccurate. Glossy will work great for you if the lighting in your room doesn't create any glare on the screen.

Back lights are dim on speedometer, odometer


You probably checked this, but sometimes we forget.
The dial on the dashboard to the left of the instrument panel controls the brightness of the instrument panel lights. Turn the dial to adjust the brightness. Also, to reduce glare at night, the fuel and temperature gauges dim when you turn on the parking lights or headlights. You then adjust their brightness when you adjust the instrument panel brightness.
Turn the dial up as far as it will go to return the fuel and temperature gauges to their daytime brightness.
I hope helps and it's that simple for you.

Cluster goes dim when i turn the lights on


your dash lights should dim when you turn your running lights on. This is to reduce the glare for night time driving. There will be a dial on the dash near the cluster that you can adjust the brightness of your interior lights

See pages 50-52 for what to do. Use a close-up setting and no flash. Also take photo at an angle to reduce reflected glare.

Pink circles and glares with sunset photos


It may have to do with the black ring. (think football players). I'm guessing either that or the more sensitive, noisier CCD is to blame!!! Good Luck!!!
