Re: Over exposure of images
Unfortunatly, all I can offer you is an accurate testing for the settings, in order To verify that the camera cannot make a proper exposure. Go outdoors on a sunny day, put the camera on manual, aperture to f8 and shutter speed to 1/500 and ISO at 100. You should get a pretty good picture with proper exposure.
This is the "Sunny 16 rule", F16 at 1/125 ISO 100 which is EV15. Correct exposure for a clear sunny day, not in the shade.
if it fails, I would say there's some problem in the mechanizm, probobly one that requires a technician, or at least more knowladge than I can offer you.

It would appear that the camera settings are over exposing the image. Not knowing which camera or model you have it's difficult to be more helpful. Over exposure can come from too slower shutter speed, too larger aperture and/or too higher ISO rating. Put the camera on full auto if that works adjust your settings to the full auto settings. You may wish to repost with the specifics on your camera.
Your camera is setting its exposure to your subject, which if it's darker than the background will cause the background to over expose. You need to set the exposure to the background which then will cause your background to be properly exposed and your foreground or subject to be darker. With a point n shoot camera, accomplishing this might be a difficult task. But if you expose to the background and use the fill flash, you should then get your properly exposed image.
Check your Exposure Compensation Dial. In shooting modes where exposure compensation is allowed, this dial can be set to decrease or increase the brightness of the image in 1/3-stop increments across a range of -2 to 2. You use this control to override the camera's automatic exposure settings to get a slightly darker or lighter image. It should be set to 0.
You should carefully review the settings especially the Mode and Function settings (Func/Set button). The Exposure Compensation, White Balance, ISO and Image Quality settings may require adjustment. Have your manual open when you do this and work through it step by step. Try the camera after each change so that you will learn which setting was at fault.
hi,there's a problem in shutter that's why you hace over expose picture or line on the images if you zoom out.if you can open you camera and remove the lens unit. you can adjust the shutter or you can check the cable if its broken or not.
Check your exposure compensation adjustment. If that is set high, then all your shots will be over-exposed until it is brought down to the "0" setting. A relative had this problem with a different camera, and all it took was resetting the exposure compensation to make things work correctly.
I often set cameras with a default exposure compensation of -0.3 EV since blown highlights are so distracting.
The camera fails to control the flash output automatically due to the high intensity of Macro ring flash, causing the image to be over-exposed. Please set the camera as below to prevent a undesired result. Camera and Flash Settings - Set the sensitivity to ISO 100 using the function dial of the camera. - Set the flash metering of the camera to Pre-Flash TTL from the recording-mode menu. MACRO RING FLASH 1200 - Set the camera exposure mode to A or M mode. - Set the aperture to f/6.7. - Attach a ND filter x4 (0.6D) to the camera lens. MACRO TWIN FLASH 2400 - Attach a diffuser to the flash tube units. In case the flash tube and the subject is too close, eg. Not using the arms, set the camera exposure mode to A or M mode and the aperture to f/6.7. A subject at minimum distance may still be overexposed. Use exposure compensation to obtain the best result.
EV stands for exposure value. An indication of 0EV is what the camera thinks the correct exposure should be.
If the EV becomes a positive number it means the camera thinks the image is overexposed by that amount (+1=1 stop, +2=2 stops overexposed etc)
A negative value means the camera thinks the image is under exposed.
I have a 707 and find the I prefer the images from it at -0.3EV, so if you're happy with the setting you have now, I say stick with it.
