Question about Olympus Camedia C-750 Ultra Zoom Digital Camera

Flash vs No Flash

I noticed not using the flash could make a picture much blurrier than a picture with flash. I'm just curious why the flash would make that much of a difference for quality (instead of just making it darker)

Re: Flash vs No Flash

Probably what's happening is that the shutter speed is automatically adjusted to a faster speed with flash. With no flash the shutter speed slows down to compensate for the lack of light, therefore leaving it open longer. So while you are holding the camera during a longer exposure you are promoting camera shake, thus blurry pictures. The LED may tell you information you need to know like shutter speed, apture, flash on/off, etc.

I have the Canon Rebel EOS T2i and often get a "busy" message that locks up my camera and I miss several shots


Jlaurice,
This can be caused by number of variables - RAW vs JPEG, the size/quality, if you are using flash, level of battery and the type of SD card you are using, live view, etc. I highly recommend making sure that you have a quality SD card that is rated with a class 10 (10MB/s) transfer rate or higher.
Do you notice a difference if you are using flash or not? I've seen this before where using the flash will results in a situation like you have described, but cannot be replicated with no flash in good light.
That said, if you are using AF assist on the camera, it will measure the distance to your subject and determine the "amount" of flash needed, so if you are shooting at a longer distance, this can increase your recharge time.
I hope this helps.
Thanks.

Camera fails to flash every time we take a picture


1.Turn off the camera.
2.Install a set of new or fully charged batteries into the camera. then turn it ON
3.Press the Flash Status button to scroll through the flash options until Fill Flash (the lightning bolt icon alone, with no other letter or symbol) is displayed. This forces the camera to use the flash. a86196b.jpg
4.Take a picture. [If flash still doesn't work contact Kodak support line 1 800 235 6325 (23KODAK)]

Blurry indoor results- using flash


Built in flash units on digital cameras are only meant to be used out to a distance of 6-12 feet. When taking photos of events ie graduations, sporting events, concerts you need to do two things. 1). Change the ISO setting on your camera. This is the same as the old film speed ratings the higher the number the more sensitive the camera becomes. try ISO 1600 or above in low light. 2) You have a mode setting, set it for the type of lighting that is in the space you are in, incandescent, flourescent or whatever, it's easy to do. and finally 3) Turn off your flash! When your flash is on your camera closes up the aperature and takes the picture at a higher rate of speed in anticipation of reflected light off of nearby objects, so your pictures will be darker and blurrier with the flash on.
Even high grade professional flashes only work out to 20-30 feet so they won't help you. Read your cameras manual on taking pictures in low light conditions. It will give you all of the above in great detail. You have a great camera but you need to learn how it works, don't give up on it.

Try a higher ISO speed (suggest 400). Look in your camera's instruction book to find out how to do this.

Pictures are dark, even when flash is being used


Press the FN button under the toggle on right side of LCD screen. You will see white balance on left. Toggle down to the "flash" symbol".  Should work a treat now. If not using flash go to FN again and raise ISO.(Don"t forget to go to Auto white balance again!!)

DMC-FX01 Flash Does Not Work


In what mode are you trying to take photos? The flash will not work in certain modes (see the manual), for example the night mode. Or you accidentialy turned on sequential/burst mode (this is mode where camera takes more pictures on one shutter button press). Flash cannot be used in this mode also. I don't have FX01, but on FZ8 the camera will show flash icon in red, but will take the picture anyway without flash being triggered. The second problems seems like enabled power-saving mode, but those 5 seconds are too short for this. But anyway you can check in SETUP menu the settings for power-save. Also maybe the flash is broken and camera noticed it... I don't think this could be a software problem. Either problem with the flash, but more probably just setting of wrong mode.

CANON POWERSHOT A-85 FLASH PROBLEM


Watch the flash,(this might hurt your eyes a bit. If you are getting dark pictures the flash may not actually be firing without you noticing it. It is also possible that the output of the flash is not as high as it should be. This is not very likely though. Either way, since you have tried all posible settings, you are going to have to take it to a shop.

Battery problem


I find that the Nikon 4300 really burns through the batteries when the camera is set to use red-eye correction. This triggers three or so flashes for each picture. I think I get more than 30 red-eye corrected flash pictures on a set of batteries, but probably no more than 50. Taking outdoor shots w/o flash naturally is kinder on the batteries.
