Question about Digital Cameras

4 Answers

My Fujifilm Finepix F810 is taking over exposed photographs in all modes in daylight; this includes Auto mode. Photographs taken in poor light or when using the flash are fine.

    I have the camera about 5 years and it worked well until May 2008. I have not been able to fix the problem. I feel that the camera may have become defective and will have to be returned to manufacturer for repair. However before embarking on this expensive course of action I am experimenting with different settings in the manual mode but so far have been unable to achieve a satisfactory result. I would appreciate any further help that you can give.

    It seems as if FinePix creates a subdirectory for each photograph that I download and places 2 photographs of different sizes into each of the subdirectories. it also downloads the photographs as well into the main subdirectory. Any ideas why?

This is actually pretty common with Fujifilm cameras. They just are bad in normal daylight. Just take a look at reviews of this camera and you will see what I mean. The company just doesn't seem to know how to make a good camera for the outdoor daylight.

    If you just bought this, I recommend taking it back and buying a Kodak, much better quality in my opinion and I would also give Fuji a call about this

    good luck and have a good day

    If anything, the shutter speed isn't where it used to be, and that area either needs to be cleaned or the mechanisms/motor replaced

This might be a camera spesific issue, Have you had this problem from day one? If you haven't Id suggest you restore your camera to the factory settings.

other than that these problems can be fixed on pc side with a photo editing program.

How to use the macro mode in a digital camera?


Macro mode in digital camera is used to take close up shots. For example you wanted to take a photograph of a flower as a close shot (less than 15 Cms / 6 inches) then we use this mode. Just change the mode to macro mode by pressing the macro button once and then its regular photoshoot. But remember to turn it off before you take regular photographs, else the regular long shot photographs will be distorted.

Why can't I take more than 3 pictures with internal memory? It then says internal memory is full.


The camera that you have only has 10 MB of internal memory , if you are taking photographs at 12 megapixels only 3 photographs would fit as each photograph would be around 3 MB each. I would suggest to buy an external memory card and take photographs on that. The internal memory is only for demoing and checking if the camera works and not for standard use. Buy a SD/SDHC card , they are very cheap nowadays and have immense capacity to hold lot more photographs.

I get overexposed daylight outdoor pictures, unless I zoom in and avoid wide angle views.


Ok - thanks. From what I can see, the Kodak you're using has mainly Auto modes. However within the Auto modes, there is something called Exposure Compensation. If you already know about this let me know. If however you don't, it may be that you, or someone else using the camera has inadvertantly set the camera to over-expose the shot.

The Kodak online guide shows how the screen will look if you have inadvertantly set it - and it's easy to re-adjust. It normally goes to a maximum of +2 to -2. I'm guessing you have it set to +1 or +2?

Kodak guide

If it's set to 0 however, that would indicate that maybe your camera has an internal meter fault. You could then try setting the above to -2 - and see what impact that has on your photographs. In normal situations, this would make a well-exposed photograph very dark.

Try the above and let us know how you get on. Good luck.

Fuji S5000 mode switch?


That looks very much like the slector switch has slipped inside and is out of position.
That can be fixed if the actual and very tiny switchover pins are not broken.
I have repaired one switch actually with parts from a S3000.
Works ok but extremely fiddely.
Otherwise it is a replacement of the small switchover board, which sits on top of the battery compartment.
Problem being: Fuji will not sell parts to us.
Good luck

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Fuji should fix this for you for free. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:
