I have a Sony DSC T-90 12.1 megapixel. I often


The vertical line can be caused by a very bright object in the image like a lamp or a silver surface reflecting the flash.
The spots are caused by the flash being SO close to the lens. Any object that can reflect the flash reflects it right back at the camera. This is an image problem with most point and shoot digitals. Watch for reflective surfaces and stand at an angle to them. Turn on more lights in the room before using flash. Stand at a slight angle to the image or person you are photographing - don't shoot straight on. (I kneel down and shoot up - makes a good shot too.)
If you are shooting toward the sun, shield the lens from direct sunlight with your hand (Keep your hand out of the picture!)

I would like to photograph people and animals in snow


Using the camera in program mode with auto bracketing turned on should give you reasonable results. Winter light is “cooler” in nature and the bright reflections from snow and ice tend to make the final image too “bright."

Bracketing exposures help when photographing outdoors in the snow.

You can use flash as well. Remember to keep a spare battery for the camera, and keep it warm if you plan on being in the cold very long.

What is the best setting for taking photos through glass.i have a olympus sp-590uz .ive only had the caamera a few days any help would be great


Photography through glass isn't difficult if you know a few guidelines.
If you're indoors in a museum, or aquarium etc, it would be best to turn the flash off. This will eliminate the flash reflecting into your photos.
If you need to use a flash, make sure you're not squared on the glass. IF you're at a direct, 90 degree angle from the glass, that's when the flash will reflect off the glass and back into your lens. An angle between 50-70 degrees will all the light from the flash to illuminate the subject on the opposiite side of the glass without reflecting.
You're camera has a high megapixel resolution so you can get great color and detail. If you use the zoom feature, you'll need to hold the camera very steady or if possible, use a tripod.
Another technique that alot of photographers use is called "bracketing" . Many of the newer digitals have a setting that will allow you to do this. Bracketing is simply taking 2 or more photos of the same image with slight exposure setting changes being the only difference between each shot. For example, one shot would be normal exposure, one would be a step or two over-exposed, and another would be a step or two under-exposed.
Many of the cameras will take the 3 shots all together-check your owner's manual for specifics.
With these simple techniques, you'll look like an ace!

When it is sunny day try to take pictires with fuji camera z100fd my face reflects on screentherefore i cant take picture i have a hood and antiglare film ao screen but makes no difference


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To my understanding of your posted problem, it would appear that there is really nothing that could be done. It appears to be a design issue but not necessarily a limitation. You have not posted that pictures taken are affected by the reflection, hence it is more of a user friendliness question. If possible, use it like a conventional camera rather than sighting through the the LCD screen. A possible solution is to increase the backlight but that would require extensive modifications which would not make it economically reasonable nor technically easy.

If you would factor in the modification cost, downtime and the efforts to effect the desired results, you may want to re-evaluate your options and consider seeking a suitable replacement camera.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Are you taking these images with a flash? If so it is possible that you are shooting with a shutter speed which is too fast for flash photography. Anything faster then 1/125th (i think) on that camera with flash will produce the result you are describing. If this is without flash then the problem lies elsewhere. New flashes from canon have the capability to work with any shutter speed, but classic flashes only work properly at lower speeds. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

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.

Pictures are underexposed


When you are photographing scenes with mostly light objects (for example, snow, water, and sand), the picture is usually underexposed (darker than it really is). The camera meter registers the brightness of the scene and tries to set the camera lens and aperture for an exposure based on average brightness levels (18% reflectance) causing it to underexpose, as in the following picture. When you are photographing scenes with mostly dark objects (for example, shade, shadow, and overcast skies), and very few light objects, the camera may overexpose the image, causing it to be too light. If you have a flash on your camera, you can compensate by adding "fill flash" for some extra light. If your camera has an exposure compensation adjustment, you can increase or decrease the exposure to correct for these exposure problems. Increase the number to make the image lighter, and decrease the number to make the image darker. You may want to try a series of shots with different exposure compensation adjustments to get a feel for how much difference these adjustments make.
