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!

    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

Very bright pictures from ouside


When you go outside, do you change anything in the settings? I think the camera should be in the auto, sport or something like that. If it is not in auto but in the night Scenery, night Portrait or high Sensitivity, pictures inside, with less light will be ok, but outside they will be over blown.

Why does my camera take white pictures outside,


Do you have the ISO set to a very high number instead of "auto ISO"?

The pictures are too light, when taken outside. Inside they are quite good, but sometimes, if it is too much light inside, I get again too light pictures


you can set the white balance so when your outside you can tone the brightness and visa versa for night. it should be in the setting of camera menu

Can't see picture in frame when taking outside pictures


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'.

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.

Images too dark or too bright


Metering has gone on the .Can you set the camera to Aperture priority or speed priority?Set to either permanently if you cane then you should get a standard exposure. The inside shots may appear dark, but all the information is there and a treak in an image editor will brighten them up. Cant do the same for too bright images though if they burnout then that's it. a repair is not likely got a birthday any time soon Got some one that luvs you enough to buy you the next one.?

My pictures are really bright or completely white


Sounds like a major problem and not one which could be tackled on line. If your camera is still under warranty, return it quickly. If not I hope you have deep pockets. You are suffering from either a faulty iris control or faulty video board. With perhaps a little CCD problem to help things along.
