Are you speaking about the sun back lighting the subject? If so there are numerous ways to eliminate that or greatly reduce it.

  • Move the subject so the light is not behind them
  • If that is not possible then increase your shutter speed to 200 then add TTL flash. From there you could change the flash to Manual to lower the flash output.
  • Take the camera off Auto or P put it on M then experiment
There are many ways to do this, keep experimenting.

On my Dell E193fpc monitor, the background lighting goes off after a few seconds. The actual Screen-image is still there (can be seen in bright sunlight). How can I get the backlighting to work proper


This sounds as though there might be a problem with the inverter (this is a component that supplies a high voltage for a tube(s) that illuminate the screen.

As there are high voltages on inverters, this is really a job for a repair shop.

Bright light background


What is your question? Are your pictures coming out with the background too bright? Do you want to take pictures of a subject with a bright light in the background? Something else?

On lighter backgrounds the pictures have horizontal lines as shown, what is going? This only happens on light objects and backgrounds.


This can happen if the light is too bright. When you capture bright object/background, try to turn off your flash light, see if you'll get better picture.

Hope this help (^_^)

You can use Photoshop cs4 or cs3..
But these softwares are paid software.
If you want something for free try out with Gimp or Irfan View, they are free..

Screen not readable in bright sunlight.


This is a problem with digital cameras with LCDs. You can make things better by upping the brightness of the screen - this will consume more power though.

Go into the menu (middle button at the back), into 'setup', and then look for 'LCD brightness'.

New Kodak M1033 cannot see image on LCD in sunlight


This is a common problem with all LCD screens without anti-reflective coatings.This is normal. Increase the brightness of LCD while shooting in the sun. Internal memory normally takes only a few images. This is normal. Use a memory card to shoot more images.

Why are my pictures so blurry.. HELP PLEASE!!


Hi Lindsay Davi,

First, make sure you have the file size set to the highest size and highest quality. Small file size and low quality settings produce small files with pixelization.

Second, no camera performs as well in low light as it does in bright light. It sounds like you are new to photography, so you should start out by shooting in bright light - outdoors in the sun. Once you know how to take good photos in the sun, then you can try taking photos when it is overcast, or in bright shade (on a sunny day but outside of the direct sunlight). As you develop more experience in taking photos you can try more difficult lighting situations such as indoors.

Flash lighting is difficult because the light "falls off" quickly as the distance from the flash to the subject increases. The camera's flash tries to put out enough light to illuminate both the subject closest to the camera and to also try to light the background, but this is often impossible. So the subject is too bright, and the background remains dark. If your subject is further away, the lighting evens out some. If your subject is close to the background (e.g. standing in front of a light colored wall) the camera will get the flash exposure set to a better value and the photos will come out better.

It would also help to get a book on basic photography.

I, took a picture with a bright sun as part of the picture. Now, my LCD just shows colored vertical lines. I, can not take a picture. Is there anyway, I, can fix this problem? Thank you.


Remove your batteries. Let your camera reset. Direct sunlight is never good for your sensor. That should fix it. If it doesnt then you sensor has been damaged unfortunatley repairs on sensor are not cheap
