Question about Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens

1 Answer

I know this has a simple solution, but this is my first digital and I am a litlle "slow". When I review my pictures on the camera, certain areas of the pictures flash 'black.' Sometimes the black patches are across a face and other times it is around other objects. I do not remember it doing this when I first started using it.

You're seeing blown-out highlights. These are areas of your photo which have been overexposed and lost all detail so they are pure white. This is generally considered a bad thing, and the camera is warning you. It's only a warning, since the camera doesn't know what effect you're trying for. These areas will come out pure white in the resulting photo when you look at it on the computer (and/or when you print it, obviously).

The correct fix is to reduce exposure to bring back the details. This may lead to losing details in the shadows, but that isn't considered to be as bad. After all, we don't expect to see things in the dark.

That was the long answer. The short answer is to repeatedly press up/down on the multiselector to cycle through the different views.

I dont have the manual and dont know how to review the pictures.


Well it would be easier to give you exact instructions if you included a model name and/or number of digital camera you are asking about. Without that information, all I can do is give you general terms that pertain to the majority of digital cameras.

To review the pictures, turn the camera on and press the "review" button on the back. Then use the arrow keys to navagate the pictures one by one.

Good luck!

I have a finepix f402 and when i switch it on to camera or video nothing happens if i switch it on to review it is ok . the flash does not work either .when i go to the set up the auto on and auto off do...


Inside the door hinge area is a small switch that normally would turn off the viewfinder and turn on the LCD panel. THat switch could be defective or mechanically not being switched. WIthout opening up the unit, I can not tell specifically. This shouldbe a simple repair for any shop that repairs cameras.

I just purchase my first digital camera, how do I know if my pictures are deleted?


CONGRATS on getting your first digital camera!!!! :D

Look back at your review. (Which is just going through the pics you have taken previously.)
If you want to be absolutely certain, go back and take a pic, then go to your review and see if the pic you had deleted is gone!!!

My camera is way to slow to take a picture


If you read the reviews on A10 it has something like 1.73 seconds shutter lag, which is very slow to some other cameras with only 0.3 shutter lag. Redeuce the pixels to 6mb. Also a weak battery and maybe a under performing m.card add to your camera seem to be slower usual.

Busy Signal when taking pictures


A few possible causes:

1) You have a slow memory card. Borrow from someone one of newer fast SD cards and test it in your camera. Take your card to a store that sells cameras, and try shooting with their cameras to see if you get the same delay.

2) Slow camera. The only solution here is to update. Many camera review sites give timing how long it takes a camera to write an image to a card.

3) Camera settings. If you are shooting in low-light situation, camera takes longer shots. There should be a warning icon about this. Easy way to deal with this is to use a tripod, to put camera on something solid. Check for "Slow Synch" setting - set it to Off if you don't know what it is.

Difficulty reviewing pictures when camera docked


Had the same thing happen. You must use the arrows on the dock, not those on the camera.
