Question about Olympus EVOLT E-500 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera Freeze Sometimes when I snap the shutter, the camera frezes, a very small red light quickly flashes (which is located to the right and bottom of the LCD on the back of the camera), and in the LCD there is the following display: D: 3C85 To clear the camera, I have to turn it off, then back on. Often it will do this several times in a row. The odd thing is, it does take a picture as the image is stored on the memory card. Help!

My pictures are constantly coming out blury...I have it on sport mode, what else should I be checking.


Blur is usually caused by one the following problems. 1) Camera is unable to focus so the shot is out of focus. 2) The hand shakes during a shot that has a longer exposure (shutter speed) and 3) There is not enough light so the camera holds the shutter OPEN (seeing) while to subject is moving. In most cases you will have few problems when you have plenty of light. Many indoor areas when you zoom in have too little light to take a quick non blurry photo.

Flash can freeze motion. The flsh is quick and it is like a strobe freezing action. A tripod prevents camera shake.

When I take photos the image is either too dark on top half or blown out on bottom half... is this a shutter problem? Does this regardless of what lens I use...


higher iso settings allow you to use a faster shutter speed. This can be extermely helpful when handholding your camera, especially with the telephoto end of some zoom lenses on small digital cameras. Faster shutter speed will also freeze action better.

automatic white balance can be useful for shooting quickly in changing light conditions; however I rarely select auto as my standard. the auto setting often gives inconsistent results simply because it is an auto function that is making the best of a world that varies in terms of color and light.

I have a nikon camera and there is a small red hand flashing at the top right hand corner,How can i get this to go away?


Hello

OK, the red hand icon that's flashing indicates that the camera is using a slow shutter speed, and is warning me to be careful to hold it steady.)

So, basically you will just need to increase the shutter speed, and the hand will go away. This setting is usually done in manual mode.

Kind regards
Andrea

What does the flashing red hand in the upper right


The flashing red light is warning you that the shutter speed will be too long for handholding the camera. Put the camera on a tripod or other stable surface, and/or use the flash.

Flash buttom cannot be pressed to take a picture....turning the camera off and then back on helps...so does pointing downward and pushing button 1/2 down, and then snapping picture.


the mode that the camera is in, probably auto, is saying that there is enough light. when you point it down it reduces the light and when you press the shutter down half way it sees the light deficit and pops out the flash. i would say to play with the modes and preset modes.

Nikon D60 Digital SLR--Slow Shutter Speed


Your're probably using a flash with TTL disabled. So 1/200 is the highest sync possible with that kind of flash. Did you try removing the flash off the body and setting faster shutter speeds?

Lights!Camera! No Action!


do you have a memory card installed?
is this camera new?
not seeing in the viewfinder is not a good sign.
if its a slr, the mirror is locked up, either by function or failure.
need to know if its a slr or small format point and shoot to offer further advice.
