    I just got my camera.
    and as soon as i turned it on.
    the screen was pinkish.
    and really dark.
    When i point it to the sky, the sky would be pink, when i point it inside it would be really dark and you would not be able to see anything at all even though it was light inside.

    If I take a picture inside the picture has an orangish color and the picture is fuzzy. It doesn't seem to matter if it is light or dark. I have tried adjusting the settings but it doesn't seem to make a difference.

    On "Auto" my photos are too dark.

  • sitndance Jun 02, 2008

    My pictures are mostly outside ones, but all of them are coming out too dark. I am also sometimes getting too much redish tint. This darkness is under all circumstances. Inside, outside, zoom or regular lens position. I have to adjust every picture by the same amount of brightness on my computer after it is taken. 


  • viggyswife Jun 22, 2008

    My photos are too dark when inside even when flash goes off. This happens in auto and portrait. Any suggestions?

    Who is gona take aktion!!

  • Lauren777 Aug 25, 2008

    I've had this problem now with 2 Canon Power Shots. All of a sudden, every picture I take is dark. It doesn't matter what circumstances the picture being taken is in. No matter what I've do, they remain dark until I adjust the brightness on the computer. But then I lose the integrity of the picture. This happened with my previous Canon so I bought a new Canon. I think I will be switching camera brands this next time if I can't get this problem fixed.

  • ab9625 Aug 30, 2008

    My pictures are too dark, outside or inside, sun, or no sun. I have to adjust brightness on my computer, then the pictures are too milky looking.

  • jewelrylady Sep 02, 2008

    All of a sudden all pictures taken whether indoors or outdoors appears to be dark?!? What in the world happened with my camera!?

  • person9449 Nov 03, 2008

    I have noticed that when I take a picture with the flash off, it looks okay on the screen on the camera. But when I up load it on to the computer it is really dark. This happens indoors and outside, and usually when it is darker out. But the pictures look fine on the camera.

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Fuji should fix this for you for free. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. However, this advisory repair is currently limited to the US. Please check the following two links for more info:

Ya u r right thats the dissappointment in panasonic sv-as30 its night mode is not gud no solution for this u can only increase the brightness or increase the iso rate or use flash

Posted on Nov 03, 2007

 

Locate the section in the handbook that deals with exposure compensation and learn to adjust your A620's exposure upwards by between 1 and 2 stops.  I have FIVE different Canon cameras and I have had to do this with all of them.

 

Remember: your flash exposure compensation may be handled in another part of the manual and will probably need to be set separately - worth remembering.

 

Also...it's worth switching to Aperture Priority (Av) mode, quite often; it seems to help with outdoor shots of buildings or of people, when their backgrounds are quite bright.

 

I know how frustrating this can be.

When inside pics are either over exposed with flash or flash doesn't work leaving pics dark, even on flash mode.

Be sure that you are capturing images in the right shooting mode. For example, if shooting a night scene your image will be underexposed and dark if the image is captured in the Program Auto mode for regular photography, or in any mode other than Night Scene. Be careful that when capturing images, nothing is obstructing the flash.

You never should use the picture you see on the monitor of the camera. Not one camera has a calibrated screen. And the brightness is changed very easy in the setup menu.
To test if your camera shoots good pictures, select AUTO on the mode dial. Shoot some pictures and look on the PC or just print them.
Your camera has so many settings, that over rule the brightness when you switch to it, like + and - 2 EV setting. But when you chose for A, P, S, or M, the pictures can be to dark or to bright, if you dial in the wrong settings. So don't evaluate the pictures on the monitor. Only use the histogram on your camera to see if you have a correct, to dark or to light picture.

Your aperature setting is too close. Go to menu and go to your aperature setting it allows how much light is let in open it up a setting at a time until you have enough light to get great photos.

Poor quality pictures


Check your picture settings, the wrong setting for the time of day or object can definetly throw off the appearance of your pictures. Plus, you may have accidentally set it to "warm" instead of auto or black and white, etc. Warm pictures have a reddish tint to them just as the cool have a blue tint. Also I have found the "night setting" only takes really good pictures if you are close to the subject otherwise it is pretty dark!

Check whether the ISO rating set in the camera is correct. Also, if the images are grainy and dark, it may be an issue with the exposure.
