Question about Nikon D200 Body Only Digital Camera

1 Answer

Spots and artifacts on uploaded image

This problem is particularly true when there is a solid expanse of color in one area. For a time several spots appeared in the same places with each shot when they appeared, but not there are more of them and the could be in various places on the image. Processing images has been a magnified hunt for spots to eliminate through Photoshop. What is going on and how can the problem be solved?

    Thanks Cuchulain,



    I thought that might be the case, but since it seems it is not in all my shots, I thought otherwise. I'll give your suggestion a try.



    Thanks again, and YOU have happy shooting,



    Robert

There would seem to be dirt on you sensor. Nikon recommend that you get it serviced if this happens - but read on for another solution...

It's happened to me once before
Using a cannister of inert gas (like you'ld use to clean a keyboard or circuitboard) I removed the lens and locked the mirror in the up position, then a single dart for the aerosol was all that was needed.

That's what I did anyway - but I had only 1 spec - if your sensor is that dirty, perhaps it's time to get your camera serviced anyway.

Happy shooting

What does the blue light in the corner of the screen mean


Sorry could not find the exact manual. however you can find it from this one as they ought to be similar
http://www.vivitar.com/files_products/1033/ViviCam_F124_Camera_Manual.pdf

It is called the METERING MENU - three modes (Centre; multi and SPOT). you are set for that spot. you can change that. see page 23

The Metering setting will affect how your camera focuses when capturing an image. Depending on your selection, the camera will be more sensitive to focusing on particular areas in the display and adjust the image color and lighting accordingly.
Center - Averages the light metered from the entire frame, but giving greater weight to the subject in the center
Multi - Used in standard conditions the camera divides and adjusts the settings of the image into several zones for light metering such as complex light conditions, position of subject, brightness, background, direct light and scenes
Spot - Meters the area within the spot point frame at the center of the LCD to set the exposure on the subject in the center of the monitor.


1) Press the M (MENU)/SET button to open the menus for the current mode.
2) Press the LEFT or RIGHT direction control buttons to scroll and select the chosen menu.
3) Press the UP or DOWN direction control buttons to scroll through the menu options.
4) Press the M (MENU)/SET button to select the desired option.
5) A selected option icon will appear on the selected item.
6) Press the LEFT or RIGHT button to select the next menu item. 7) Press the MODE button to exit the menu and return to your previous mode. 23
8) An icon reflecting your selection will display on the LCD screen 9) Remember that this setting will be saved by your camera until you manually change the setting or restore the camera?s default factory settings.

The color is off and not right from time to time.what could be causing this and can it be fixed


Well, first, you'll have to tell us the make and model. Are you saying the color goes off and on, from black and white to color, or that the color isn't correct from a particular spot and then from a completely different spot another time this happens?

White ink printing with alps MD 5000


To print white, you need to use the spot color option in the printer properties. The object to be printed must be all black. It seems counter to what you might think, but the spot color mode will print the solid black areas as the selected spot color.

Colors are not printing out true.


I replaced the Office Max ink substitute with an original Canon ink. This did not help. I decided this problem most probably had to be a printer head issue, so I gave up and bought a new printer instead.

Light or Faded Areas in Solid Color Prints


If the issue is occuring in the same place on all prints, try the imaging drum (can't remember if this printer even uses one) or the transfer belt/roller (not sure which it uses). If you phone Dell support, they should run you through troubleshooting and send you either of those parts free of charge if you are under warranty. If not, buy them anyways; they don't degrade over time (if kept in the dark) and can be saved for when the currently installed one runs out if you don't need it to fix this issue.

How to cut curled hair


I prefer Arcsoft studio, it came free with my scanner.
It is much easier to use for selecting areas, including
an intensity/hue matching Magic selection tool.

The automatic selection tool creates an approximate selection
border (Exact is virtually impossible). Once you have it, you
can zoom-in and then add or subtract areas for a better fit.
You can also easily invert, expand, shrink or smooth the selection polygon to get near perfect results.

The entire process should take about 10 minutes per image,
depending on complexity. I have once isolated over a hundred
animation puppets from a book that way.

Once you have created a perfect selection fence/polygon,
make sure that you have chosen the correct side of the
selection (inside/outside using the selection invert function),
and then use the fill/spill tool to fill the unselected area with
a repeatable solid (primary) color, that does NOT occur in
other parts of the image.

To do this correctly, set the FILL tool tolerances at max.,
since the fence controls what gets painted, not the underlying
color.

Save the new image under a different file name.

You can now use the solid background color as a
"color key" or a mask for special effects or image
mixing. You may need several masks, positive and
negative to get the job done (using boolean logic)

e,g. image or black = image, ... etc.

PS another good tool that is astronomically cheaper
than photo shop is LView.

What is the difference in metering among multi-segment, spot, and center-weighted?


Multi-segment metering uses 256 segments to measure luminance and color. This data is combined with distance information to calculate the camera exposure. This advanced metering system will accurate worry-free exposures in almost all situations including backlight condition. Spot metering uses a small circle area within the middle of image to calculate the exposure. The spot allows precise exposure measurements of a particular object without being influenced by extremely bright or dark areas within the scene. Center weighted measures light values over the entire image area with emphasis given in the central region. In backlight condition or when the subject is not in the center of image, exposure compensation will be required.
