When I view my photographs on my Nikon D50 the white on the photograph pulsates with black where the white areas are on the picture. The photographs itself is perfect but this is annoying. Can you help please?

You're looking at the blown-out highlights. These are areas where you've lost all detail. Press up/down on the multiselector to change the view. Better yet, reduce the exposure to reduce/eliminate them.

When in playback mode, black patches flash on the screen, only in white areas. Actual pictures are not affected once uploaded and printed but its a very annoying problem! Nikon D50


You're seeing blown-out highlights. These are the portions of your picture that have been so overexposed that they've gone pure white, losing all details. This is generally considered a bad thing, but as the camera doesn't know whether you're deliberately going for that effect, it's merely warning you. The proper fix is to reduce exposure (the easiest way is by using exposure compensation) so as to bring back the lost details. This runs the risk of losing details in the shadows as they go pure black, but this generally isn't as bad as losing details in the highlights. We don't expect to see things in the dark, after all.

That was the long answer. The short answer is to repeatedly press up/down on the multiselector to choose a different view of your picture.

In camera mode the display turns black and white, and so are the pictures taken. No setup changes seem to work. ???


You mean to say whatever photographs you click comes in black and white photograph or nothing at all comes. Go to camera select options select effects and then select normal. If still the photographs are black and white kindly comment back.

When I try to view my pictures on the LCD screen, the white area of the picture flashes. Last week on vacation, it would intermitenly stop taking pictures. I would have to set the lens and camera to...


Hello,

If this is the same as my Nikon this is the overexposed highlight display option.
This shows areas of the photograph that are overexposed slightly.

On my Nikon I use the up and down arrows on the back to cycle the LCD display options.
Stop when you get a display that does not flash.

As for the focus problem check if you have set the front control to AF not M, also check if the lens is set to A not M.

How do I set shutter speed to photograph without a flash


You can take the photograps at P mode while keeping the flash off. In this mode the camera will set the speed and the appature according to the available light. This may slow down the speed so make sure you keep the camera stable.

Screen is white and doesn't display area being photographed. Can take pictures.


From camerahacker.com:
1. Hold camera firmly in left hand.
2. Smartly rap front of camera with knuckles of right hand on the "Cyber-shot" logo.
Worked for me :)

Nikon d80 LCD screen


Hello cherdh,

To disable those blinking spots, just press the up or down cursor keys at the back of the camera while in playback mode. You will get three different views. One shows the EXIF data (Image data) as an over lay on your photograph. Press the button again to go to histogram mode, with graphs. Press it again to go to a mode where some image data is on the bottom of the display with no blinkies on the image.

Those blinking black spots are called highlights in a photograph. They indicate the areas where your photograph is over-exposed, i.e. where there is too much light and the colours are washed out. It can be a good tool to get a good exposure. Keep clicking with different settings till you get an exposure without those blinking spots.

I hope this helps.

Yellow gym pictures


The lighting in the gym was the cause most likely. Try setting the white balance to a different mode

Nikon d50


the flashing means that the exposure is not correct for that area. if that area was the subject, then you might want to adjust the settings to reduce sensitivity in order to view that area correctly. if you spot meter the 'true subject' in the frame, there will often be areas outside that subject that are either brighter or more dimly lit. but exposure will be right for the subject. it can't all be correctly exposed if there is much variation in lighting. fill flashes will provide more light to the subject, thus resulting in a reduction in sensitivity of the resulting settings. (shorter exposure time or smaller aperture or a combination of both) and that will let the brighter areas move closer to 'not washing out' or being over exposed as some people refer to it. in either approach, its not a defect or problem unless it bothers you. the flashing just lets you know that you can modify settings if it matters that the photograph has high levels of contrast beyond what you may want. sometimes the subject is not in the center, and thus not metered for. but the framing is set to include something off to the side. you can reset exposure by adjusting exposure compensation so that while you are reading a darker area than that of the subject, you don't want the camera to use that area for light settings necessarily.
recap: exposure control via exposure compensation or fill flash
