Re: What does the brightness-warning do?

It points out areas in the image that may be washed out or over exposed. It helps you to make the proper adjustment needed when bringing images in to Photoshop as a Tiff 8bit image.

Why when taking a picture is the background of the picture flashing


If the image you see in the camera display flashes then it's an over/under exposure warning feature that's turned on in your camera. It's there to tell you when an area of your picture is either too dark or too bright. You can usually find a setting in the camera's menu that allows you to turn it off. Look for "Exposure Warning" in your menus or something similar.

After taking pictures with bright colors, image in the viewer blink black/white over brightly lit objects...Help, it's making me crazy!


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 detail. This is generally considered a bad thing so the camera is warning you about it. But the camera doesn't know what you're taking a picture of, things like the sun reflecting off polished chrome should go pure white, so it's just a warning.

Usually the proper fix is to reduce exposure, bringing back the lost details. This risks losing details in the shadows as they go pure black, but that's generally considered not as bad. After all, we don't expect to see things in the dark.

That was the long answer. The short answer is to press up/down on the multiselector to cycle through the different views of your picture.

Hi, the photos i take are getting blurred and the image is not at all clear no matter how shot the distance may be i click the image.the only new icon i see on the screen is vibration warning symbol along...


If you are shooting in Auto mode with flash, this should solve your problem. Make sure you are not dictating any of the settings, i.e. choosing a longer shutter speed, a very small aperture setting, or a very low ISO (sensitivity) setting.

Typically the vibration warning icon will appear when the camera is trying to use a long shutter speed without flash in order to get the right exposure for a darker scene. Your outdoor (bright light) photos are probably OK.

In dim light with a point and shoot camera, you can have your choice between 1. blurry (using a relatively slow shutter speed), 2. dark (using a shorter shutter speed but no flash), or 3. a good photo with flash (which uses a medium shutter speed and added light from the flash)

When viewing images on the LCD display ,pictures with White or bright parts to the image the display flashes between White and black is this a setting issue .the camera is a Dx 40x


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 detail. This is generally considered a bad thing and so the camera is warning you of that. Of course, the camera doesn't know what kind of effect you're trying for and thus it's just a warning. The correct fix in most cases is to use exposure compensation to reduce the exposure and bring back the details. This risks losing details in the shadows as they go pure black but that's not considered as bad. After all, we don't really expect to see much detail in the dark.

That was the long answer. The short answer is, repeatedly press up/down on the multiselector to cycle through the different views of your pictures.

Images get bright flashing border when looked at. I think it is highlighting, but I want to get rid of it.


If when you are reviewing the LCD after taking a photo and a portion of the picture is flashing black, that would be your highlight exposure warning. This can happen when the picture is overexposed, so you will need to use a faster shutter speed or a smaller aperture.

If this has no effect you might have a light leak in the body/lenses, so it will need to checked by a service technician.

When ever there is a picture taken there is a flicker when i view the picture in my camera it happens only on the bright spots ...ehy is it


It's normal.

The Nikon dSLRs have various LCD display modes, and one of them is called "highlight clipping warning display". Basically, when you set your LCD display to "highlight clipping warning display"(it's the mode right before the "histogram display"), it blinks white/black wherever your picture has blown highlights (i.e. where your picture is overexposed)

A histogram display is very helpful in telling whether you've got the exposure right, but to it isn't adequate by itself. With digital cameras, it's very important not to blow-out the highlights in a picture (they're similar to color positive film in that respect), since once you hit the maximum brightness, the image just saturates, and any highlight detail will be lost. A histogram display does a pretty good job of telling you how the image as a whole is doing, but what if there are just a few critical areas that you're worried about for the highlights? If only a small percentage of the total frame is involved, it won't account for many pixels. That means any peak at the "white" end of the histogram graph would be pretty small, and easy to miss (or just plain invisible). What to do? The folks at Nikon recognized this problem some time ago, and so have provided another special display mode on the D60 (as on most of their dSLRs) that they simply call "highlights," accessible via the Playback settings menu, under "Display Mode." This mode blinks any highlights that are saturated in any of the color channels. It does this by taking the nearly-white areas on the LCD and toggling them between white and black.

Camera taking wierd pictures


look for the reset to factory settings for your casio. i could also be the settings have been changed so more light is coming in the camera which explains your bright pictures. but the lines across ALL the pictures warn something of a CCD/Cmos sensor problem.

Pink tint when shhoting in bright sunlight


Sane problem with C713, the view screen is dark and gives focus warning, then the pics come out with a pink tint. I believe it is the sensor or shutter problem. Can't get any solutions either.

"Shake" warning symbol won't leave screen.


That shake warning will appear whenever the camera is in a low-light situation where the shutter speed is low and the images may blur. If it's coming on even in bright light, maybe you set the shutter speed to a fixed low setting? Either way, you may be able to shut off the warning in the settings of the camera.
