Tip

Flashing photos on a Nikon camera


You're seeing blown-out highlights. Those are the portions of your photos that have been so badly overexposed that they've gone pure white, losing all detail. This is generally considered a bad thing and thus the camera is warning you about it. The proper fix is to reduce exposure so as to bring back highlight details. This risks losing details in the shadows as they go pure black, but that is generally considered not as bad as losing highlight details since we don't expect to see things in the dark. However, the camera doesn't know what effect you're striving for. Sometimes blown-out highlights are perfectly acceptable, thus the camera merely warns you that it's happening. <br /><br />That was the long answer. The short answer is to press up/down on the multiselector to cycle through different views of your pictures.<br />

The image in the led is graine and you can not get a clear picture and when the flash goes off the image is just a white glare.


1) Too close to subject. Try backing off a bit. 2) Using digital telephoto. Usually very grainy. Most cameras have a #x (8x for example) zoom raring as well as a #x Digital zoom rating. Try using only the real zoom, not the digital. There should be a slider in your LCD preview that lets you know where you are on the zoom scale. 3) Does the camere have an "Auto" picture taking setting? Use that. If you already are, try using some manual settings (adjust ISO, etc.). This info should be in your manual. If you don't have the manual, go to the maker's web site and download it. Good Luck!

The problem is that u know the sony hdv xr500x when u put it on the picture is very dark we have tried it under light too put but the picture is still dark


Hello
When you look at your pictures are they dark, murky and hard to see? If you took pictures at a wedding, dance recital, theater performance or any indoor event and they came out dark, read on to learn why your pictures are dark, and how to fix this common camera problem.

Many people take pictures of indoor events, only to be unsatisfied with the final outcome of their photos. Although you may have bought the top of the line film or digital camera, there are a few limitations that you need to know about.
To correctly expose your pictures, you camera needs a lot of light. The compact point and shoot varieties adjust for this when you're outside during the daytime, and usually your pictures turn out fine, right? Well, then how come when you take indoor pictures, they sometimes come out too dark? There are two culprits; your zoom function and your flash.
Most compact cameras today offer a zoom function. When I used to work in retail photography sales, the first feature that consumers would ask for is zoom. People love to get close-up pictures without using their feet. Although zoom does bring your subject matter in closer, it also decreases the amount of light that can get into your camera. Essentially, the more you zoom, the less light your camera can receive, and your pictures will be darker.
So, if your taking pictures indoors, in a dark church, gym or other window-less room it is very difficult for your camera to get enough light to properly expose your pictures.
This is when most photographers decide to turn on their flash. The flash on your camera is a great tool to illuminate dark situations that are in close proximity to the camera. Most built-in flash units are designed to allow the light to travel 8-10 feet away in poor quality light and up to 15-20 feet in brighter situations.
What most camera users fail to realize is that although your zoom function is visually bringing you closer to the action, you flash cannot reach that far to illuminate the subject, and your pictures will be dark.
Hope it helps, if so do rate the solution

How to overlay picture in D40x camera


Overlaying pictures, like almost all photo manipulations, is better done on a computer using "real" software rather than on a camera. You get much more control on a computer. However, the D40 does have a wide repertoire of photo manipulation capabilities.

In order to overlay images, you must be shooting in RAW (or RAW+JPEG). Select Image Overlay from the Retouch menu. A preview dialog will be displayed with Image 1 highlighted. Press OK to get a photo selection dialog. Use left/right to highlight the first picture in the overlay. (You can press and hold the Zoom button to see the selected photo fullscreen.) Press OK to select the image. Optimize exposure for the image by pressing up/down. Press left/right to highlight Image 2. Select the second image the same way. Press left/right to highlight the Preview column. Overlay will show you the result, allowing you to go back and change things if you wish. Save will save the overlaid photo.

The shadow in the lower portion of your camera is probably caused by the lens hood. The solution is simple: remove the lens hood whenever you're using the built-in flash.

Black flashing in bright areas of image when viewing


This is a tool to tell you where your photo is under or overexposed. If you use the up/down button to scroll through the display options (file info, shutter speed, filename...etc) will take you to the view where the highlights are shadowed or whited out. One of the views has no data or highlighting. Just leave the view there.

Blurry zoomed in pictures


if you take pictures on digital zoom, the picture quality may not be acceptable. Try don’t use digital zoom.
digital zoom is not really zoom, it just enlarge a portion of the image, thus 'simulating' optical zoom. That is why you lose image quality on digital zoom.
