Question about Samsung SGH-d807 Cellular Phone

2 Answers

2 interesting problems

The camera on my phone displays distorted and takes distorted pictures (off colors, similar to solarisation effects) and has recently become so distorted that you can't tell the pictures...no idea what's causing this one.

Also, just in the past 1-2 days the left side of my slide keypad as well as the left-right arrows on the center toggle are no longer functioning, or function highly sporadically. Any ideas as to what might be causing this?

    Didn't drop it. Haven't replaced the battery yet, but that hasn't been giving me any problems before. The phone only about a year old, had one previous owner and has been kept in good condition.

    hey guy so my Samsung SGH-d807 Cellular Phone one day just randomly some of my keys doesnt work on the phone the keys that are on the sliding part of the phone. Every few hour one key would stop working than so and so forth, which eventually the whole thing doesnt work and now my camera is all disorted and i cant do anything cause the screen will only show a white blank. Is there anything i can do?...

    giangho, i took mine apart using this guidehttp://www.fixya.com/support/t246072-sam...
    then using some canned air I blew out all the accumulated dust and debris from inside the phone (there were several hairs and other bits and pieces of dirt stuck in between the keypad and the sensors. after putting it back together the keys work fine. the camera is still messed up (and at first, after putting it back together, the phone couldn't find the sensor at all). but now my keys work again.

    I have the same problem with the distorted "night vision" images when I use the camera. Occasionally it works again, so I think something must be loose inside.

I read that the iPhone 7 Plus has a dual lense camera. What does that mean and what is the difference with the iPhone 7?


The purpose of having 2 lenses allows the camera to zoom in more without the loss of picture quality (graininess). It also enables something called the bokeh effect which allows a you to capture a new depth of field. Basically, it can blur the background while having your subject in focus similarly to the DSLR. However, this is not available immediately at launch. The program that will allow the iPhone 7 Plus will come later in the year.

The iPhone 7 Plus It also comes with optical image stabilization (OIS) which reduces the affect of hand swaying and shakiness.

Also having two lenses allows the camera to take 2 slightly different photos with the difference being in the color. The photos are then stitched together to create one photo with more vibrant colors.

Tip

Improve camera phone photo result


These days digital cameras are found in a variety of other gadgets –
including cell phones. In fact Camera Phones are one of the fastest
growing segments of the digital camera market and with the improvements in the quality of what is being offered in some phones (higher megapixels, better lenses, high capacity storage) some believe that they are beginning to win market share away from the low end offerings of many digital camera manufacturers.


You can get the most out of your cell phone camera just follow these tips:

  • LIGHT YOUR SUBJECT WELL:
The better lit your subject is the clearer your image is likely to be.If possible shoot outside or turn on lights when shooting inside.
If you’re turning on lights in a room to add extra light to your
shot be aware that artificial light impacts the color cast in your
shots and you might want to experiment with white balance to fix it.

Some cameras come with a built in flash or light – this can really
lift a shot and add clarity to it, even if you’re shooting outside
(in a sense it becomes a fill flash.f your camera doesn’t have a flash or light you should avoid shooting into bright lights as you’ll end up
with subjects that are silhouetted.

  • GET CLOSE TO YOUR SUBJECT:
One of the most common mistakes with camera phone images is that their subject ends up being a tiny, unrecognizable object in the distance. Camera phone images tend to be small due to low resolution
(although this is changing) – so fill up your view finder with your
subject to save having to zoom in on the subject in editing it later
(which decreases quality even more).

Having said this, getting too close on some model camera phones
creates distortion and focusing issues (particularly if the camera
phone doesn’t have a macro or close focusing mode.

  • KEEP STILL:
As with all digital photography, the more steady your camera phone is when taking your shot the clearer your image will be.

This is especially important in low light situations where the camera will select longer shutter speeds to compensate for the lack of light. One trick is to lean your camera phone (or the hand holding it) against a solid object (like a tree, wall, ledge) when taking shots.

Keep in mind that many camera phones also suffer from ’shutter lag’
(ie the time between when you press the shutter and when the camera takes the shot can be a second or so). This means you need to hold the camera still a little longer to ensure it doesn’t take a shot as you’re lowering it away from the subject.

  • EDIT IMAGES LATER:
Whilst it can be fun to use your camera phone’s inbuilt editing and effects, editing pictures later on your computer produces much better quality images. Take your shots in color at high resolution to keep your options open on how to treat it later.

You can always make it black and white on your computer, but you can’t make it color if you take it in Black and White mode.

  • DON'T THROW AWAY MISTAKES:
Remember that on many phones the quality of the screen will not be as good as your computer’s. So if possible hang onto your shots until you can get them on your PC. You might just find that they come alive on a quality monitor. You’ll also find that even ‘mistakes’ and blurred shots can actually be quite usable (in an abstract kind of way)

  • AVOID USING THE DIGITAL ZOOM:
As tempting as it might be to zoom in on your subject when taking your picture (if you have a zoom feature on your camera phone), if the zoom is a ‘digital zoom’ it will decrease the quality of your shot to use it (you’ll end up with a more pixelated shot)..

Plus you can always edit your shot later using photo editing software on your computer.

Of course some camera phones are beginning to hit the market with ‘optical zooms’ – these are fine to use as they don’t enlarge your subject by enlarging pixels.

  • EXPERIMENT WITH WHITE BALANCE:
An increasing number of camera phones come with adjustable white balance which allows you to modify color balance in your images based on shooting conditions. Experiment with this feature to get a good feel for the impact that it has on your shots. I find that it impacts different camera phones differently. Read your manual to find out how it works on your phone.

  • TAKE LOADS OF SHOTS AND EXPERIMENT:
The beauty of all forms of digital photography (including that of camera phones) is the ability to shoot off many shots quickly and without cost. This means you can experiment with different modes and composition and discard those that you don’t want to keep.

Camera phones are particularly good for experimenting with new angles and perspectives – shoot from down low, up high, close up etc and you’ll end up with interesting and fun shots.

  • KEEP YOUR LENS CLEAN:
One of the challenges with many camera phones is keeping them maintained and clean. Phones spend a lot of time in pockets, in bags and being used in all manner of weather and conditions. As a result they get dirty and can easily become damaged – fingerprints are a common problem on camera lenses – especially if your phone doesn’t have a lens cover. From time to time clean the lens of your camera using a soft cloth (sunglasses cleaning cloths are great).

  • OBSERVE CAMERA PHONE ETIQUETTE:
While there is no formal set of rules for using camera phones – it is worth considering how you use it and what impact it might have upon others. There are many cases of camera phones being abused to take sneaky or voyeuristic photos. Ask permission to photograph strangers, consider restrictions on the use of cameras in places like theaters and concerts etc.


  • USE THE HIGHEST RESOLUTION POSSIBLE ON YOUR PHONE:
Some phones allow you to choose what resolution you want to take photos at. It almost goes without saying (but we like to state the bleeding obvious) that the higher your resolution the clearer your shot will be. This is especially true for camera phones which often have sensors of under 1 megapixel in them. Keep in mind however that the higher the resolution the larger the file size of the images you take – this means if you want to send images they can end up taking a long time to send.


Thank You!

Camera has crazy negative look how can i make it go back to normal ?


From within the camera application, press the Menu key. A menu at the right side of the screen will display, showing different options that you can use to tweak and customize your pictures (distortion, vignette, depth, posterize, etc).

Once you have made your selection, touch the arrow to close the menu. You can then capture the image and the effect selection will be applied.

My camera takes blurry pictures it will only take clear pictures upclose


From my understanding the camera is VERY sensitive to movement and the slightest movement while the picture is being taken will blur the image considerably. This may explain why it can take decent pictures up close but not far away. The further away an object is when the shutter is open, the more exaggerated the distortion will be making it very difficult to take snapshots at a distance. The best thing to do is to simply try to stabilize the phone best as possible when the picture is being taken. It has an exceptionally powerful camera for a cell phone so it should take great pictures as long as it is held steady. Very steady.

LG 8300 phone the display screen is distorted / scrambled


Hello,

The problem with your phone is that the flex on your phone screen is malfunctioning, that is why the screen is distorted.

All you will need to do is to change the flex on your phone screen because it is now faulty.

Change the flex of your phone screen as advice and you will see that your phone screen will be back to normal.

Take care.

Pictures are coming out green


It seems like the previous owner messed with the color effect feature on this phone. After you take the picture and its under your picture file, you can edit it. view the picture and go to options. scroll down to image editor and clikc okay. click on tools (right hand side). scroll down to color effects and click okay. now you have a menu where you can change the coloring of the picture. You may want to try the enhance green feature first and make sure its not set completely to the +5. The default settings have red, green and blue all set at zero. Hope this helps!!
