Problems taking photos at night.

Hi, I hope someone can help?? I have just come back from my hols and had great probs taking photos with my camera at night. I tried various settings but nothing seemed to work. The photo's were coming out an Orange/Yellow colour and blurry.
Any suggestions or is there a fault with my camera? No one else seemed to be having the same problem.
Thanks
Julez

Did you use flash? Did you use tripod? Generally speaking night photos with non-DSLR digital camera, W55 is non-DSLR, will be blurry unless either flash is used or a tripod is used. The issue is the camera shutter is set for a long exposure in order to get enough light that it is impossible to hold the camera steady. The color problem you mentioned is most likely your white balance. Normal white balance is sunlight at night you white balance should be Auto, Incandescent or Neon

Hi, I have a Kodak camera m531, but when you take photos flash 2 times and the image quality is pretty bad beating and I three years, which is bought 0.14 mega-pixel. Thanks ghadri


Your camera should make great pictures. I don't know if you changed some settings, but to make sure you are not in night mode or something like that, press the mode button and use the arrow keys to go to the smart capture mode. Then try again. Only chose another mode, if you know for sure that mode will give a better result then the smart capture mode.
I hope this will help.

My cannon camera powershotA470 is not taking photos during day time


Did you accidentally switch the the camera to manual mode or to night shots. (night portrait) in scene?
Just chose the little camera logo on the mode dial and try again. If you still have problems I hope to hear from you.

Sony cybershot t300 lcd screen remains dark when switched on


Hi,
Your camera must be experiencing these symptoms due to a faulty CCD, and not due to other problems. If the problem is due to your dropping the camera, you might be out of luck.
If you have not dropped your camera and still facing this problem, then contact service people to replace the CCD imager in your camera .

Hope this helps .

It doesn't take all the pictures at night, i get some, maybe 1 or 2 then it skips and might take 1 more. takes great daytime photos. is there anything that can be done to fix it?


Hi mmcgee6,

You need to check the settings in the camera , as to whether it's selected on night mode or not , when you use the camera at night , and particularly if the light is not as bright as day light.

There should not be any problem with the night shoots from the camera if there is no problem in the day , it's just the settings that needs to be changed to night mode.

Also a good idea would be to set the flash settings on Auto instead of Off , or other settings , this will adjust the camera as per the environment in which you are clicking your pictures.

Hope this helps ....:)

I need to take pictures indoors without the flash, at a darts tournament the flash would distract players. When I turn it off I get blurry pictures. Can you help


TRY TAKING PHOTOS SETTING THE THE CAMERA IN THE NIGHT MODE. THIS ALSO WILL NOT GIVE YOU GREAT PHOTOS AS THIS IS A ENTRY LEVEL CAMERA. YOU REQUIRE A PROFESSIONAL CAMERA LIKE DSLR TO TAKE SUCH PHOTOS.
REGARDS.

Hi, I'm having some problems with my samsung camera s630. whenever i take pictures in the day time the pictures don't come out clear, but when i take pics in the night they come out really good. Can you...


This is happening due to your wrong settings..
So first you rest your camera to factory defaults... and confirmed that night mode is off for daylight picture...
Take photo on Auto mode... and see the result.... If still not satisfied then camera get serviced...

Pictures to dark at night


no there isn,t.but these cameras do not have enough flash to take great pictures at night,for one you cant be to far away,two you have to have a subject in range of the flash,other wise all you get is darkness.but at the most 10ft is the farthest you can go and still get a great shot at dark.also use auto mode when taking pictures,because it adjusts to light-dark etc.i know this because i have the same camera and its awesome,plus im a photo technician and ran a photo lab for 3years selling digital cameras. good luck,hope i helped

White lines when you take photos in light, but perfect in the dark


The problem lies in you camera's CCD unit which is located on the back of the lens held on be 3 small screws it could also be a setting in the camera's menu try going into the menu and reseting the camera to default it works some times if that does not work than you need the ccd replaced pretty easy fix I fixed 1 with the same problem about two weeks ago for someone it happens I hope this helps you out.
