There is nothing wrong with your camera - It is doing what it is meant to do!

The purpose of the flashing areas is to drawn your attention to parts of the image that are over-exposed. In an ideal world nothing would ever be overexposed, but if the image has both very dark and very bright areas, the camera cannot capture both - something has to give! The flashing areas are just to let you know.

It's covered on page 52 of the manual.

I have recently taken pics at three different stage shows for children. The lighting was bright on one but the other two there wasn't a lot of lighting. I have a Nikon D40X with a SB-600 flash on. ...


Red-eye is caused by the light from the flash reflecting from the back of the eye. There are several ways to eliminate or at least reduce the effect. One, as you've done, is to edit the photo after it's been taken. The red-eye reduction feature of the camera shines a light at the subject, causing the pupils to contract and thus reduce the reflection from the eyes.

A good way is to move the flash away from the camera. This causes the red reflection to go toward the flash, not the camera. Unfortunately, the D40x lacks the Commander mode to control remote flashes. Instead, you can use something like the SC-29 cord to move the flash away from the camera.

Another possibility to consider is to not use the flash at all. Bump up the ISO and see whether there's enough light for existing-light photography.

When viewing photos some white areas blink black on the lcd.


This is becasue those flashing areas are over exposed highlights. Reduce you exposure compensation a stop to capture those white areas. Increase your shutter speed or use a smaller aperture (f-stop) to let in less light. When you loose highlight detail in a digital image it is hard to reclaim back on a computer program.
