FD-88, viewing LCD in daylight, too bright

Just bought the FD-88. The LCD is very bright outdoors (daytime). I can't see a thing in the LCD and the pictures are too bright to recognize anything in the picture. What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance for the help. Angela

Re: FD-88, viewing LCD in daylight, too bright

You're not doing anything wrong. Sometimes it's just hard to see to LCD. You could try turning down the brightness, or turning off the backlight, but that doesn't work very well either. There are sun shields for sale. I have a FD-88 also, And so far I've been able to see the screen ok in sunlight. But It's winter in Minnesota so the sun is low in the sky, and I can normally shade the screen with my body. Hope this helps.

Problem on outdoor daylight picture taking


hi

try the Exposure button [+/-] will generally be disabled in auto mode

try changing mode to 'P' (Program) mode and then change the exposure by pressing the +/- button and then you would generally see a scale on the LCD now press the left button to decrease the exposure

better more is to reset the camera to the default settings this would set the aperture, shutter, Exposure, LCD brightness and otehr settings to defaults and this would save from any unwanted changes than required

cheers
pls rate if it was any help

Outdoors pictures too bright


I think your ISO setting is very high or is in default.
Please shift it 100 whent you thaking outdoor snaps in daylight or normal indoor light. It will help you to produce a better photograph.
Best wishes.

White screen when taking pictures in daylight


Go to the menu screen for LCD contrast and adjust, it sounds like it is to high. Kinda like a back light for a plasma screen.

Re: Kodak EasyShare C613


HAVE YOU TRIED USING ANY OF THE OTHER SETTINGS ON THE CAMERA IN THE DAYTIME? I.E., LIKE IN MOTION, LOW LIGHT, BEST SETTING, ETC. ARE THEY ALL THE SAME?DO THE LINES SHOW UP ON THE LCD DISPLAY? SOUNDS LIKE A PROBLEM WITH THE DAYLIGHT SENSORS INPUTING BAD INFO TO THE CAMERA. HAVE YOU TRIED THE ALMOST WORTHLESS KODAK CUSTOMER SERVICE WEBSITE? THIS SOUNDS LIKE A PROBLEM WITH YOUR CAMERA THAT IS ONLY HAPPENING DURING DAYLIGHT EXPOSURE.

The LCD screen is hard to see. What should I do?


If the LCD screen is too bright or too dark, adjust the LCD Brightness setting in the Setup Menu. If you are shooting photos outdoors in bright light, move the joystick to the icon showing the sun over shaowed area to turn on Outdoor mode and make the LCD screen easier to see in bright light.

Mavica FD-88 Rattles


you have nothing to worry about. It's normal. The 3.5 diskette drive is a 4X speed and the noise you hear is normal. All FD83's and 88's will make noise and vibrate a little.

LCD screen


The LCD screen is a 2.5-Inch High-Definition LCD. This 210,000-pixel high-definition semi-transmissive LCD monitor maximizes the advantages of both transmissive and reflective technologies to assure excellent visibility and high picture quality even when viewed in bright outdoor light.
