Flash Control Settings

What am I doing that is incorrect? I just cannot get the bottm row of choices that appear on the "Flash Mode" screen (full, 1/4. 1/16. 1/64) to light up. Rotating the control dial cycles through the four choices on the first two lines, but never illuminates the choices in the third line. I have the mode dial set to M, iso to 100, focus to S-AF. and flash set to on (no red eye, no slow curtain etc.).

Out door picture Did not making .and indoor picture making


Hello,

I am not 100% sure that I understood your problem correctly.
If the images just appear dark or white it is because you have incorrect exposure settings.
To fix this please turn the control dial to P or Auto

If you have another problem, please give me more details, like what mode you have selected, what do you see on the screen, what happens when you shoot outside or inside.

Regards,

When I turn on the camera, it says "green mode" then immediately turns itself off


Green mode locks all the camera's settings except for the flash. It can be turned off, however. There are 12 preset shooting modes. The main menu screen features chirpy cartoon icons for all the standard options, and some more unusual selections. A MySpace-friendly self-portrait mode is included, as well as settings for snapping pets and food. Oddly, the menu is laid out in no particular order: the top row features program, night, movie, voice recording and novelty frames, while the more useful portrait and sport are relegated to the lower tiers. The pre-loaded frames are even lamer than we've come to expect from such fripperies, and they ratchet the processing time right up.

How do i get video to workon my vivitar vivicam x327


Video Mode
Press the MODE button to select the Video mode.
Note: The camera has limited internal memory allowing you to record up to 20 seconds in QVGA. An SD
card (up to 8GB) needs to be inserted in order to use the video mode normally.

When the icon appears on the top left corner of the LCD screen this indicates that you are in Video
mode.

1. Prepare the object or subject you wish to record.
2. Press the Shutter button to begin shooting the video.
3. The elapse time will appear on the top right of the LCD screen and the icon will flash on the
LCD screen.
4. Press the Shutter button again to stop the recording and save this file in AVI format.

Note:
1. You can preview the AVI files in Playback mode or once downloaded to your computer by using
Quick Time and Windows Media Player.
2. When the camera's memory is full, the “Memory Full Insert a SD Memory Card to Transfer and
Shoot More video!” message will appear on the LCD screen when you attempt shoot more videos.
Download the test file from the internal memory to the PC or delete them to shoot more videos.
27
Alternatively, you can insert a SD memory card to expand the memory to record longer videos.
3. The LED will light up when the light condition is not good.

I bought a Sony DSC t700 approximately 6 months


If the built-in flash does not function, then the camera may be set to Auto and will only flash when taking pictures in poorly illuminated environments.
To set the camera to the Forced flash setting so it will flash regardless of the surrounding brightness, press the UP ARROW on the control button until a lightning bolt icon appears on the LCD screen.

If the Forced flash setting is already enabled and the flash is still not working, then the issue may be due to another camera setting. Even if the Forced flash setting is enabled, the flash will still not work in the following circumstances:
When shooting MPEG movies
When set to the Twilight mode
If an external flash is connected
If in the Burst or Multi Burst mode

Please touch the MENU option on the screen of the Camera.
Then, select the REC MODE under the MENU.
Then, select NORMAL under the REC MODE.

If you're not able to select the NORMAL under the REC MODE, try Initializing the Camera.

First, please touch the HOME on the LCD screen of the Camera.
Then, select the SETTINGS in the HOME menu.
Then, select the MAIN SETTINGS under the SETTINGS.
Then, select the Initialize under the MAIN SETTINGS.

If the issue still persists after performing the troubleshooting steps provided above service of the Camera is required.

It's required to physically examine the Camera to determine the exact issue at the service center.

I turn off the flash on my sony dsc - t77 , how to turn it on? i could not find the function!


That solution does not work on the T77.
I have the same problem and this is how I solved it.
Press the Menu button on the bottom left corner of the screen.
Go to the second page (2/3) select the "REC MODE" (it is the firrst choice)
Select your mode as normal and not burst and then exit the menu.
Now you should be able to activate the flash from the screen..
Hope it works for you as it did for me.

No flash on Olympus C-740 Ultra Zoom


This does appear to be a settings problem...
On the 710, there are a number of settings combinations that will result in the flash remaining off.
Here are some that I can think of :

> If the camera is set to "Super-Macro", the camera will not allow you to turn on the flash.
> If you are shooting using any of the scene modes, watch out, because several of these can set the flash to "off", and may not allow you to override that setting. Try exiting "Scene" mode, and try setting the flash.
> If you are shooting using the "Guide" mode, be aware that several of the options there will set your flash to "off". But (in my experience) you usually can override "Guide" mode's flash settings.

This one is important>>> If you are shooting in the "Auto" mode, the camera will always decide whether to flash, and you can not alter its decision. The way to escape this tyranny is to shoot in the "Program Auto" mode. This setting is not located in the same place as all the others, at least it is not accessed in as direct a way. Try this :
>>With the mode selector switch (dial) positioned to indicate the picture of the little camera (and with power on), press the "OK" button in the middle of the 4-way controller. Now you can see the "Shooting" menu.
>>Use the bottom (down) part of the 4-way controller to scroll through the options...you are looking for the one that gives you a choice between "P" and "AUTO". Stop scrolling when that location is highlighted. Now you can use the right or left parts of the 4-way to select between the "P" or the "AUTO". Be patient here, as the camera's shift from one setting to the other can be sluggish, and if you press the button just fast enough, it will appear that no change is taking place. Be sure to select "P", and press "OK" again. Now you should have regained control of your flash settings...but to exercise that control, you will, of course, have to be in normal shooting mode (the picture of the little camera), and press the right side of the 4-way controller to open up the flash settings screen. There, use the 4-way controller and the "OK" button to make your selections. Consult your manual for the meanings of the symbols.

If it is not one of these, it may be still be a combination that I haven't listed...or it may be something more serious. I hope this helps, and good luck!

Olympus Stylus 710- no flash mode


I;ve been on the internet all morning researching the same problem. It appears it's a curcuit related problem with the flash. As of know, haven't got a solution other then buying another camera or taking paictures in manuel mode without flash.

I don't think you'd like to write down all your settings. =)

Of course, make sure your Auto is set, this ensures you are allowing the camera to make all choices for you. If the pictures still don't come out correctly, you may need to have the camera serviced.

If pictures can be taken in Auto mode, but not in (P)rogram mode or others, then give it a try to RESET all options and "start over" like "in the beginning".

The possible reasons are Pg. 91 of the manual:
  • White balance is not on Auto, or incorrect for the lighting conditions. Pg. 92-94
  • The wrong metering makes the lighting evaluation go funny. Pg. 95
  • Bracketing could be set wrong, which makes takes two or three extra pictures with compensation +1 and -1 of your current settings in order to try and capture a better picture at the instant of the original. Pg 116-117 (less likely though)
  • Exposure compensation is set too incorrectly for the conditions. Pg. 108-109
You can find these steps on page 119 of the manual.

To do this follow these steps:
  • Choose a program mode
  • Press the Menu button
  • Goto the bottom of the menu list to choose Reset All
  • Select it and reset all settings
This might have to be done for each program mode.

External flash for the 3000Z


bought the Metz 32 Z-2 that was recommended by Epson. I did a great deal of searching/researching on the web, and eventually came to the conclusion (my personal conclusion...YMMV..as well as others) that it was worth the price. I've also had two (non-digitial) pros hold the metz name in very high regard. I like it so far although I haven't used it much for nice portraiture. I did use it at the beach one night in the *dark* from 10 meters (couldn't see *anything* on the LCD when snapping the picture) and a few turned out really nice. Some were not in complete focus, but hey, it was dark. I will say it is much larger than I expected. When mounted on the 850 it felt nice. But with the 3000 being a little smaller, it is rather large. With a teleconverter lens and the flash mounted together, the whole ensemble feels rather nice. I'd recommend finding one in person first. It does have about all the features one could want tho...
