That depends on your style. I personally never used the Auto ISO on my D40.

My casio qv r61 takes pics but they are coming out mostly white whats up with it can it be mended


It is possible that one of the settings is not correct for normal pictures. I don't have a menu walkthrough for your model, but here is a few things you can check:
1. ISO - This is how sensitive the camera is to light. You probably want it set to a lower number or preferably Auto. If its set at 400 or above it can cause wash out in bright lighting.
2. EV / Exposure Value. You can usually adjust the exposure value in increments of .5 or .33 from -2 to 2. If it is set towards two it can cause over exposure and odd coloring.
3. WB / White balance - This lets you set custom or preset colors as the base "white". Make sure its not set to custom and it is set to something appropriate for your environment (auto is best if available).
4. Also make sure the camera isn't set to long exposure or night mode as both of these settings can cause washout.
Please leave feedback if this was helpful. Thanks.

With my cano powershot sd960 is i cannot seem to adjust the ISO speed. when in the portrait, kids/pets, settings i press the funct set button to get my list of different options . i can see "ISO Auto" on...


When using the programmed modes, like portrait, kids, etc. you cannot set the ISO speed manually. The reason for this is because in those modes you are asking the camera "can you please set ideal settings (ISO, shutter speed, aperture, etc.) in order to capture a great image in this situation?" You can only set ISO levels when using programmed (P) mode where you can set ISO, white balance, etc.

I changed my settings on my Nikon D40 to try and get pictures of lightning. Now ALL my pictures, even in daylight are coming our REALLY dark. I don't know what I did. Please help.


Make sure the aperture ring is set to "A", the mode dial to "P", the ISO to "auto ISO" with a range of about 100-400, the white balance to "auto WB", and focussing set to autofocus, not manual.

How do I turn my Auto ISO off? I can't get a cust...


Hi Sandy, Page 43 of the D80 manual explains about Auto ISO. It works in the Vari-Program modes. In one of those modes turn on your menu go to Shooting Menu, move down to ISO sensitivity, this is where you can set Auto ISO to on or to a select ISO.

Don't know what I did, but the monitor on my D40 doesn't display what is captured by the viewfinder. It does display the photo after I snap the shot.


You may have accidently set your "Image Review" facility to off, in the camera menu refer to page 75 of the instruction manual. Also look at Custom setting 15  - Auto Off Timers, this is also linked with how long your Image review monitor stays active, refer to page 78 for this. Cheers Ian

Photo appears saturated green when set on manual setting


The image you selected for Custom WB is probably inappropriate - it may be shot somewhere else with different lighting or not enough of the image is white/grey. To do a proper Custom WB, take a picture of a white or grey card in the same lighting conditions as your subject. Go to menu, select Custom WB and choose that image. Then set your WB mode to Custom (if it's not already).

When you move to another site to take other photos, you must change your Custom WB image to another 'current' one. As the sun progresses through the day, your Custom WB will need to change as well. Auto WB will, in most conditions, be able to deal with changing light if you prefer not to keep updating your Custom WB.

Hello,i have just bought the D40 kit,and i,m very pleased with so far.the problem i have is trying to keep the menu screen on for longer.it only stays on for about 8 seconds.how do i get it to stay on...


If you haven't already done so, go to the Setup menu (the wrench). Under CSM/Setup Menu, select Full.

Now go to the Custom Settings menu (the pencil). Find Auto off Timers. Long will display image review for twenty seconds. Custom will let you set it for as long as ten minutes.

This is all under "Menu Guide" in the D40 manual.
