As with many point&shoot cameras, the L20 doesn't give you any control over the sensitivity (whether you call it the ASA or the ISO). The camera expects you to point and shoot, while it takes care of the details.
One advantage of more complex (and expensive) cameras is that they allow you to take more control over your photos.

How do I set the ASA speed on this camera?


Cannot see where you included the camera name nor model. Still, many film SLR have do not have a way to set the ASA, it reads the film cartridge, DX Code, that tells the camera the ASA to use.

Suddenly my photos on automatic are all overexposed and most of the time the camera flashes during daylight. Could I have hit something to cause this?


It sounds like either you asa is set way high or the white level setting is off. Both of these are basically controlling how sensitive the camera is to light. You just need to go to the settings for each and reset. Try 100 asa which represents a good daylight "film" and just set the white level back to the middle if it is off.

The asa is probably what is off as it is very easily changed (meant to be). The white level is more of a deliberate thing ie you have to open the menu to do it. Anyway check and reset those and you should be fine again.

Mi s-a spart LCD-ul de la aparatul foto NIKON COOLPIX L18. As dori sa-l inlocuiesc. De unde pot sa-l procur? Cat m-ar costa? Va multumesc anticipat! Cu stima, ADRIAN NITULESCU


Ecranul se poate cumpara la www.g-plushk.com, ghiduri se gasesc pe multe siteuri. Daca nu doriti sa il reparati din motivul pretului la display, atunci e sunt dispus sa cumpar asa stricat aparatul foto. Daca nu il reparatii va rog sa ma contacti pe aceasi ID de mess *** am numele de utilizator.

Can't change the ASA


if it does not support manual ASA/ISO selection than you can just easely set it to under exposure( 1F stop) and afterwards just develop it as a 800ASA film.

Nikon coolpix S550 purchased 4 moths back .. picture quality is very poor in night times.. event it is not bright in some dull light also.. Please help me.. Give me instructions if i need to change the...


You should change the ASA or ISO equivalent value--ie, change from 200-speed film to 1600-speed film. This will make the photo appear "grainier" but will show more detail. You can also manually choose slower shutter speeds--even longer than one second--but this will require that you hold the camera very steadily, probably on a tripod.

When you put the picture into your computer, you should be able to modify it with any available software. You can make the picture brighter, change the contrast, or change something called the gamma curve. ALWAYS work from a copy of the original file, so if you screw it up, you still have the original information intact!

Camera delay


Thats OK- the processor has to collect the image process it and then write it to memory. How long this takes various from camera to camera depend in the the Magapixel size- the ASA setting and other factors.

Contax 137ma ASA will not move...


I have a very vague memory (I used to sell cameras many years ago) that there is a stop at ASA 400 to prevent you accidentally selecting a faster speed. I do remember something of the sort on a camera of that era but it may not have been the Contax. IIRC, you have to lift the dial a *second* time (i.e. a bit higher) to get it past the stop. Hope this helps but it may be a red herring!
