Outdoor picture is all white

When I try to take pictures out the window, everything is white, like it is drastically over-exposed. If I pick it up and point it into the room, it is fine. Out the window, all white. Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Re: Outdoor picture is all white

I found the same problem. I was able to solve it by adjusting settings as follows: Go into 'Camera Settings' - top right blue button in video view. You need the 'Camera Setup' tab. Click 'Source' button. Click 'Advanced Settings' tab. 'Banding filter' - check 'Outdoor'. 'OK' your way out.

All outdoor exposures are white.


Sounds like you ISO setting (the 'film' speed) is set WAY too high. The brightness outdoors is causing the camera to not be able to expose correctly within the parameters of lens aperture and shutter speed. Try setting the ISO at 200.

Konica Minolta Dimage E50 suddenly over expose. Indoor at night, the picture looks almost normal. Daytime the wall will be too white. Outdoor the picture is white out.


Hi!
The shutter cable inside the lens has broken - a common problem with the E50. The cable moves as the lens zoom so it brakes at some point and then camera isn't able to control the shutter - control the amount of light taken. If you look closely at the over exposed pictures, you will notice horizontal lines accross them.
The shutter or whole lens unit has to be changed. It is quite expensive, I believe it's not worth it. You can contact Sony / Konica - Minolta service center.
I work in a Sony / Konica - Minolta service center and have repaired a lot of these.

Hope this helps!

Pictures Becomes white (Excess Exposer or ISO)


I'm not clear about your last sentence. It sounds like you may have accidentally set the camera to use exposure compensation to over-expose the images. To reset this, see page 27 in your user manual. If you don't have the user manual you can download it here from Kodak. If you said in your last sentence that this is not the case, I apologize for not understanding you clearly.

If this is not the case, then the light meter in the camera may be malfunctioning, telling the camera that it doesn't have enough light.

1) Make sure the light sensor is clean. This is the lower of the 2 small light buttons on the front of the camera, to the left of the lens as you face the camera. If that doesn't help try:

2) Use a - setting in Exposure Compensation to under expose the images to compensate for the damaged light meter.

If neither of these help, then it needs to be sent in for repair, or replaced. (If the camera is out of warranty it is likely that the repair cost will exceed the value of the camera and you should simply buy a new camera.)
