Question about Pentax Optio S40 Digital Camera

1 Answer

White only pictures

I take pictures and they are almost entirely white and this includes taking a picture of a black coffee cup on a white table. I get a white screen. I have double checked the settings and cannot figure this out. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Can I take black and white pictures with this camera?


Most digital cameras cannot take black and white photos. You need to download the photos to your computer and use a photo editing program to convert the color photos to black and white.

What kind of coffee table would go well with my white couch?


Because your couch is white you have a whole world of options to choose from when deciding on a coffee table. I personally like when white couches are complimented by glass or glass topped coffee tables. Because your couch sounds plain, you can go daring and pick out a coffee table with a loud pattern. Simple light wood coffee tables are also a good, classic choice.

Hello, I would like my pictures to have a white background. When I take the picture on a white background the background ends up looking gray. I am taking pictures of baby clothing and I want the clothing...


Exposure meters are designed on the premise that the scene is an average, middle gray, in brightness. If you take a picture of a white dog playing in the snow, the camera will try to make the picture come out middle gray (a gray dog playing in gray snow). If you take a picture of a black cat sitting on black asphalt, the camera will try to make the picture come out middle gray (a gray cat sitting on gray ground).

If the white background is dominating the scene, the camera will reduce exposure to try to make the entire scene come out middle gray. The solution is to meter on something else. Move in close and fill the frame with the subject, press the AE-LOCK button, then move back, compose the picture, and take the shot. For full details, refer to the "Shooting with the exposure locked --- AE-LOCK" section in the manual (page 52 in my copy).

If you're taking a lot of pictures, you might want to switch to Manual mode and set the exposure accordingly.

Taking black and white pictures


After checking out the owner's manual for that device I do not believe that this camera supports taking pictures in black and white. I believe that the only option you will have in this situation is editing the pictures once they have been transferred to the PC.

Sorry.
