When you are getting ready to take a picture, press the down arrow a few times to get the light balance you want. It will be trial and error. You can also try setting your ISO speed to a lower number. 100-400 is pretty much maximum for bright sun exposures.

My vs60703. Has a blurry non bright picture. You can really only see it at night. What are possible solutions.

Without details of the make and model of camera, I am afraid this reference number is useless to us. Does this problem also affect taking photos during the day ?

When I make photos during the night... they are ok.. just like a normal photo but when i make them during the day... they are so brighted... i think ive changed something on my cameras settings... but i...

I don't have a menu walkthrough for that model unfortunately, but according to the specifications sheet, here are the things to look for:
1. ISO - You probably want it set to auto for normal everyday pictures (ie not silhouette, or intentional washout) If its set to 400 that might have been the problem.
2. Exposure compensation you want this towards the middle for normal shots if its towards +2EV that can cause it to be washed out or weirdly colored.
3. Make sure you don't have manual settings for aperture and shutter speed. If you have a wider aperture (lower numbers) and a longer shutter speed, this can cause the picture to be too bright.
If you're having difficulty finding these options and can't solve the issue, please reply and I'll try to look through the manual to find specific steps.
Please leave feedback if this was helpful. Thanks.

Bright light

Hold the camera steady on the subject for a second or two before snapping the photo with less than half of the picture taken above the horizon (aim low, not high). This should render better pictures.
