Question about Casio Exilim EX-S600 Digital Camera
I recently bought a used Casio Exilim ex z60 and outdoors photos are unusable due to overexposure. Indoor photos in a dim room are usable, but it's as bright as if the room were well-lit. Strangely, the same outdoor setting that results in a completely washed-out white photo can be captured perfectly in video mode.
Is something broken in this used camera?
As the video mode seems to work okay, I'd suggest that the CCD is fine. The shutter (which is always open during video recording) is likely to be jammed, worn or otherwise broken. This would be causing it to let in light for too long per shot, over exposing the CCD.
If you attempt repair (NOT RECOMMENDED), be extremely careful around the flash circuitry. There's likely to be a capacitor there that holds a charge of up to 500 volts. Touch the wrong area and you'll be zapped (potentially fatal!). If you know what your doing, discharge the capacitor first!
Hope this helps somebody.
