Question about Pentax Optio A10 Digital Camera

1 Answer

All my pictures have suddenly become over exposed. I have taken thousands of photos with this camera - mostly on auto setting - with no problem. I have checked my settings and they are all still on auto. Last Saturday night I was taking a lot of photos with flash and my camera got very hot. This may be something that happens naturally but not happened to me before. But I have taken over 100 photos since then without sny problem at all.

Hi,

This is a common problem with most of the camera's This is either faulty circuit board ( that could be the reason that it was very hot last time ) or shutter problem.

There is a nice article for shutter problem ( THIS WOULD BE FOR CASIO BUT WOULD HELP YOU EVEN ON THIS MODEL ) :-

http://www.mydc.com.tw/repair/knowledge-en/casio-exilim-ex-s600-overexposure-t17.html

If shutter is good, then more likely it is a fault in circuitry.However, either ways, it is too expensive to get it repaired as compared to the cost of the new one.

Good Luck!!

Thanks!!

Why are my photos suddenly overexposed?


Check your settings. I prefer a test shot in auto focus mode. If the pictures taken in auto-focus mode looks fine, the settings need to be adjusted.

Picture becomes white at day time


Could be that your camera is exposing incorrectly if you could upload a photo that was taken I could have a look at the metadata and could advise you from there.

When i take picture,the picture is white n some time become very very bright, but if take video is ok.


this can be usually associated with your white balance in still camera mode.
Check to see your white balance is set correctly or just set it to auto. Also make sure the mode you are in it set. (ie. indoor, outdoor, auto, speed)

Daylight photos come with BLUE filter effect


Artificial light is a different colour than daylight. Our eyes compensate, so we don't notice it much. Most digital cameras can compensate too, but whether they do or not depends on the settings. The setting you want to investigate is color balance. If this is set to daylight, it will give an orange cast to pictures taken in tungsten lighting, and a greenish cast to pictures taken in flourescent light. If it is set to artificial light, pictures taken in daylight will have a bluish cast. The best setting for most people is Auto, if your camera has it. That will let your camera decide, and usually it will get it about right.

All of the sudden, even with the camera set to full auto, in the light of day, all photos are super dark like they were taken at night with no flash


Some times the cameras memory may become confused, so to speak. Or a user may have set something which was not set back, and so causes this to happen.
Most cameras have a way to reset to factory specs. or default as stated in some.
Then, set the adjustments the way you like them.

My G10 will automatically take 3 photos in one shot on if it is not on auto mode. Even if I've already set it on single photo mode.


It's probably bracketing each photo. Depends on the settings, but it will take the same picture and under expose or over expose it making sure you get a good picture.

Finepix E550 -suddenly very grainy photos and over exposed?


Have you checked what ISO you have selected here?
Graininess and over exposure can be caused by selecting the wrong ISO ( which in film days was ASA ( film speed) The average ISO should be 100 some early models allowed ISO 64 or similar. Having it set at 400 -800 ISO can also have the pics come out grainy. But not nescessarily overexposed unless you point directly at the light source as these ratings are for low light/movement situations. The video mode usually sets itself up differently to picture mode. The fact that you say your video is OK says there is nothing wrong with the lens or sensor, just the settings you have initially chosen to have autoed.

On the viewfinder, parts of the picture flashes black.


It sounds like you have the display set to show image "highlights", this is a mode that shows parts of the picture that has become over exposed and have no detail contained within that area, in other words the parts of the photo that are pure white.
The camera Highlights as one of several different modes that can be flicked through after looking at a photo you have taken. hope this helps  Ian

Bought this product on 28/03-08 at bangalore.all snaps taken out-doors becomes too whitish and not able to see anything, the lcd screen on review shows no snap..but white over exposed result even at...


make sure your ISO setting is set to Auto. Even in auto mode its possible to set your ISO manually. If the ISO is set to auto and the pictures are still to bright, your sensor may be bad. Also make sure your exposure compensation is set to 0.
