Question about Cameras

Very very bright pictures outside and lines thu the inside ones

I have a Cannon Power Shor 7.1. It is brand new. When I take pictures outside, they are all flashed out, so bright, I can barely make out an image. When I take them inside, there are lines thru them and the are not clear at all and it looks like the flash was also taken. They are on the bright side also. I am very frustrated. I am on vacation in Bangalore India and cannot take pictures. I bought the camera because it is suppose to be one of the best. It is not in this case. Is there some place here where I can take it? Please advise or help me. Thanks to whoever answers me.

    The camera is only a month old. Why would I want to buy a new one? I want this one to work. I don't think your solution is very good at all. I thought you were an expert? I am paying for EXPERT service. You may want to try researching my issues before sending me back a proper solution, don't you think?

Hey there uncle ed,

you have a problem with your cameras exposure. you should also disable nightmode if this camera has it.

usually when we take pictures outside, the camera is in auto focus and auto exposure mode so that you'll not get pictures that are too bright and unrecognizeable...but this is not the case with your camera.

please check with the camera settings about exposure and please check the manual that is with it since its still brand new.

    follow up!



    always remember that if your taking pictures, try to blend the camera settings with your surroundings... if its daytime, use the daylight mode, if its nighttime, use the nightmode. if its for taking background pics like scenery and stuff, use landscape... you should feel good when taking pictures too...



    have a pleasant vacation there in bangalore!

    yes its 7.1. but im asking if its a g6 type or g9 or sd50 becuase there LOTS of canon powershot types out in the market...



    anyway... if you think that your camera is faulty... please check the settings first! you have the manual for that to assist you...

    ok. thanks for that...



    here...



    Check shutter speed, f-stop setting. Speed up your shutter or stop down your apeture. Ex.
    shutter: go from a 1/20 to a 1/100
    apeture: go from an f-2.5 to an f-6.7
    these are just suggestions, you'll have to play around a bit

    change the exposure meter...its in the menu options.



    increase the ISO to reduce blur and brightness...doing this may also increase the noise in the picture...

One way out of the glare is to use the optical viewfinder (if your camera has one) to preview your image instead of the LCD. Another possibility is to buy a camera that has a backlit LCD.

Check that the camera is not in night mode or overesposed from menu setting, I think you need the manual. Put it in daylight mode

Trutech Digital Photo Frame


Image quality using default factory settings is awful. Colors are over-blown, faces are washed-out, and highlights are cropped. People on the internet compained that there is no brightness control -- there is..but its hidden in a menu. Press the Setup button on the remote and move to the "System" settings. I've found these settings produce a fairly correct balance of color, detail, and brightness:

* Brightness=5
* Contrast=1
* Saturation=2

Trying to take a picture outside, when I've taken it, the image is all white. Why is that?


This problem may occur if camera got too much bright inside the lens. Try to turn off the flash light and try to avoid taking picture in front of direct light, sun or lamp.

Please RATE.

Cannon sd1000 lcd screen black. Can review pictures, but cannot take new pictures.


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

Canon a 310 takes so long to take a second picture, very slow


I have an A310, and really like the quality of the pictures and videos it takes. But what you describe is not unusual for this particular model camera. Lag between shots in bright sunlight is usually minimal, but may be very pronounced in darker conditions. It's caused by inefficient and slow charging of the camera's flash capacitor.

There's nothing you can do to modify the design of the camera to change this. But you can try to minimize this some by using batteries with higher power rating. Alkaline batteries will not work very well in this camera, even if brand new. Would instead recommend that you consider rechargeable NiMH batteries. They run about $7 these days for a package of four. But they'll save you big bucks in the long run. Look on the package for power rating of 2,500mah or better.

Canon eos 300d - image to dark


Try lithium batteries or rechargables in the 2500mah range,to me they seem to work best in a flash.
If you use alkalines,use a well known brand.But with alkalines,as they loose power it takes longer for the flash to recycle.
Also the monitor might need to be calibrated or adjusting brightness and contrast.
Mine sometimes does the same thing,I just use Photoshop to adjust it.

CANON Rebel RTI Outdoor pictures are dark


learning to use light metering correctly can have its challenge.
the manual will guide you on how to set up to read light from the subject. spot metering a dark area will cause general overexposure, or a washed out look. spot metering a bright area will cause a dark image. if you are on spot meter and shoot two people standing together against a bright lit background, your meter will see between them if they are centered, and read all that bright background, setting the camera to a less sensitive combination of aperture / shutter speed, resulting in a dark image. use field averaging meter setting and be sure you are metering the subject and not the background. try shooting a wall that is fairly clear of other colors and uniform it light hitting it, you should have a correctly exposed image. since it works in other modes (at least 1, anyway) then it is unlikely you have an exposure compensation issue. that is the only other non defect issue that would cause your problem.
once you confirm that you have these settings correct and still get a dark image, its time to have it serviced.
good luck

Problem with picture it is very dark


hi,
Just a guess,under the power button, inside the the flip[ down cover is a light dimmer,you can turn this on and off,in advanced settings under video,a flash light will trigger the sensor to see if it works the dimmer,if not it could be that circuit or your power supply needs work,I hope this helps!
