Possible that the CCD , charge coupled device, the imager of the camera is faulty. If by nay chance you have exposed the camera to high intensity lights the probability is high.
I dont think any settings can sett this right but a replacement,
So get an opinion , and an estimate from the nearest Canon service centre. decide wisely with the inputs, if you get warranty on service.

Tip

Get more out of S4000


ISO
Set ISO Setting to FIXED RANGE and set the range to 80-400. The camera produces noise at HIGH ISO setting.
NIGHT SHOTS
Get a small Tripod and you can take wonderful night time shots of city-scapes. Use a tripod and set the camera White Balance to Incandes. Make sure the FLASH is Off Set the Exposure Comp. to -2. Set the self timer and then frame and press the shutter and back away. Some exposures can be 1 second long so a tripod is not optional. Small plastic Joby ones work. If you are holding the camera during the shot it will move with you. A self timer is used to take the photo after you are not touching it.

When you use the flash set the White Balance to Flash (Unless you are outside on a sunny day. then use daylight)

I do NOT recommend using Auto Flash. Set the flash to OFF or turn it to SINGLE BOLT for fill.

When you want to photograph people outside in the sun set the White Balance to Daylight. On sunny days use the Fill Flash (Single Bolt) to fill faces better. Yes good photographers use flash in the direct sun. When cloudy are in shade turn flash off. If the subject has a bright background get close to them and have the flash on.

This camera makes red eye. In most cases when you are taking a photo of people in low light, when the flash supplies most of the light, you will get horrible red eye. You have to edit these later to remove the red eye.

When I take pictures at night or in the house when it's darker they don't come out clear or bright. I've tried changing the settings and used the flash. I would appreciate you help. Thanks


Most of the present day personal cameras cannot have a good flash output and so the THROW of light is limited, So when it is used for night shots try and use the flash as close as possible to the SUBJECT as the flash will not COVER THE SUBJECT if FAR away.
This can be the reason for the poor shots. Also try to manually set the camera for higher sensitivity .Use of a SLAVE flash will improve your shots. You can buy this as an accessory.

I have my canon a470 digital camera, recently i had a problem with my cam, while taking any picture it showing fully white screen pictures not at all viewing properly as well their is a white lines are...


This sounds like there is a problem with your camera's shutter mechanism and won't be resolved by changing your settings. You'll have to get your unit serviced by an authorized Canon service center. Hope this helps!

THE PICTURE TAKEN WITH FLASH IS ALWAYS MORE ON PINK COLOR


This is imbalance of the white balance of the camera. If there is no fault with outdoor shots then the CCD does not compensate the high intensity flash specially when bounced closer.
Set the camera manually to outdoor high brightness and test.
If the pink seems to come back irrespecitve of any of the settings the CCD circuitry is faulty.

I have the fuji s1000fd and i need to take some indoor basketball photos today what should i set the camera on ? Most of my pix are very yellow.


You need to set the white balance for the kind of light in the gym. Take a few test shots while changing the white balance each time until you're happy with the color. For indoor shots, set your ISO to at least 800 and turn off the flash unless you're 10-12 feet from the action. If the camera has some sort of shake reduction, turn it on.

Best setting for indoor


There are three possible solutions for you:

1. Just use the Daylight (direct sun) white balance setting. Electronic flash is typically close to the direct sunlight setting for white balance. Advantages: it is simple. Disadvantages: if you are balancing electronic flash with ambient light, you are likely to have an odd mixture of lighting, with the ambient lighting tending toward red (if incandescent) or green (if flourescent).

2. Get a Wratten 85 color correction gel that you can cover your flash's head with, and use the Tungsten white balance setting. This will bring your flash output into line with existing incandescent light sources. Advantages: almost as simple as (1), and allows you to come close to matching a common indoor lighting situation. This will produce more natural-looking environmental shots if you balance the flash and incandescent ambient light contributions to the exposure. Disadvantages: large gel filters get expensive. You may be able to obtain something close to the Wratten 85 color correction filter from a theater supply house more cheaply. Roscolux #3408 is slightly weaker and #3411 is slightly stronger than the Wratten 85. If you have to balance flash with flourescent light sources, try a Roscolux in the cyan series leading to #4360. Some experimentation is likely to be required. The place I looked online offered the Roscolux in 20x24" sheets for about $7 per sheet, a bargain compared to the optical-grade Wratten filters.

3. Set a custom white balance. This is not too difficult, and it will definitely provide the best approximation to your desired white balance that you will obtain in the field. Advantages: this will allow you to reproduce white accurately even with mixed lighting sources. Combine with gel over flash of (2) for the very best approach to balanced flash/incandescent lighting situations. Disadvantages: requires a "white" target (can be a neutral gray photo card, for example) and some additional time before a photo session.

You can obtain some striking effects by purposely mixing color temperature light sources. But day in and day out, getting a balanced shot is a skill that it pays to cultivate.

Sony DSC W50 Camera - Trouble with Flash


Hi, I guess you are using the automatic mode ( not the "P" mode).
You should enable flash only when there is insuffient light. If you use flash in broad day light, your pic will be whited out. If you dont use flash in dark or low light, your pic will be dark or very dark.
So, when it comes of dark, try enabling the flash. If its still dark, increase the flash compensation (the eV value). If its still dark, increase the ISO number.
Hope these help.
cheers,

Pictures come out red


Hey JRochester,
I would make sure the white balance settings were not changed somehow. Depending on your level of expertise I would set the white balance to auto if you are not familiar with white balance, and if you are make sure the white balance is set to your shooting conditions each time you capture and image.

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
