Re: accurate color

Digital cameras rely on "white balance" to control total overall color accuracy as processed for the final image. Colors are greatly affected by light. For example, look at any wall in your home or office and you can easily see that shadows will make the color of the wall appear to be different shades. Sunlight has a very different effect on colors than incandescent light or florescent lights. Digital cameras start with white (the absence of color) to measure the effect of light and adjust the metering (measurement and accuracy) of all the other colors. Of course, white in a poorly lit room may appear gray or even yellow to some digital cameras. So how can you get accurate color? 1) Turn the Mode Dial to MANUAL MODE (Red camera icon with an "M") 2) Use the Arrow Down on the ENTER Button to select W/B (White Balance) 3) Press the center on the ENTER Button to select and adjust W/B (White Balance) 4) Use the Arrow Right (once), then Press and Hold the Arrow Down. Note: Continue to Press and Hold the Arrow Down. There will be a pause as you reach the bottom of the common preset conditions. Then a new "hidden" option will appear. 5) Once PRE SET appears, Press the center of the ENTER Button to select it. 6) A Special screen will appear. Point the camera direct at something WHITE, like a piece of paper, a white wall or a white shirt. Regardless of the lighting conditions, the camera will accept this "white object" as the new starting point "base of reference" or "True White". 7) Press the Shutter Button to program the new "True White" setting. 8) Press the center of the ENTER Button to accept and continue photography. These new settings will be saved as PRE SET True White conditions in Manual Photography Mode until you change the settings with another selection. This will not "go away" when the camera is turned off. These settings do not impact Auto Photography Mode.

Kodak M580 digital camera pics do not have accurate colors.


I have seen color problems on cameras that have a physical switch to change between manual settings and auto. Whenever I see the color change, I immediately look to my camera and flip the switch back to the auto position. I.e. be sure your camera is set to auto for camera settings.

I hope that helps someone.

Why are there lines in my photos


The manual says:
This phenomenon is called smearing. This is not a malfunction. Smearing is not recorded on still images, but is recorded as streaks or uneven colors on Sweep Panorama images or movies. ("Bright areas" refers to the sun or electric lights which are much brighter than surroundings.) It does not say a thing about lines in the prints. Are you sure the pictures do have lines too? Can you describe this more accurate?

Camera exilim ex-s600 will not take pictures outside,pictures turning out white,yet will take pictures inside ok.is this a worthwhile repair


This seems to be a software problem with your camera. Your camera should, if on AUTO mode, automatically expose your photo accurately. Try half pressing the shutter button (used to take pictures) while outside to adjust focus and exposure, then press the button fully to take picture. If your camera cannot adjust to take a properly exposed picture (not bright white), then it is possible that the shutter speed is stuck on a too high speed, outside daytime shutter speed should be fast (1/1000 sec). Or if your shutter speed adjust accurately, it could be the aperture if the aperture is not small enough for daylight shooting. This is likely a software problem. Try adjusting your settings manually and see if the picture turns out!

What is and how do i adjust the white balnceon my fujitsu S550 digital camers?


Adjustment is in the menu screen, you shouldn't have to go very deep as it is a frequently adjusted setting.
White Balance is how the camera interprets white depending on ambient lighting. Have you ever noticed how when you are taking pictures inside at night and all of the light comes from lamps and the flash that your pictures have a yellow look? Take a picture under flourescent lamps and the pictures look different as well? How about outside? Best true color rendition on the picture taken outside, but different than the others.
White balance is a way for the photographer to adjust the tone of the picture to accurately reproduce the true colors seen in real life in the picture. Most cameras have an automatic white balance and they usually work fairly well. But for the best results, set it manually. Your whites will be white and skin tones appear accurate.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!

A205 problem


You are getting too much (light) over-exposure.
If you have an option in the cameras menu to lower the shutter speed (smaller Fraction) or using a smaller (larger number) aperature, this will help get a more accurate exposure.

Blue skies


Things to consider regarding "blue skys"... Time of day (Sunlight has different color spectrum mix & kelvin temp as the dawn passes on to night. Atmospheric conditions - humidity, ozone, smoke/dust - all filter the colors White Ballance - Do a manual WB before shooting each series. Camera - different sensors are not created equal. One may play more to the blue end, another towards flesh tones. Lens systems, filters affect it too. Many say a good polorizer is one of the best investments for outdoor photos Display media - Monitors need to be color balanced to accurately portray "what you shot". Likewise, color print labs do best with digital files tuned to their specific hardware profiles.
