Question about Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Can't take outdoor pictures

The camera works fine indoors, but as soon as I try to take an outdoors picture, even in auto mode, I only see "grey" and the outline of shapes in the lcd and the picture turns out completely black. What could be the problem? I've had the camera for 2 years and this just started happening last week.

Outdoor pictures are all white


Double check the mode the carera is in to make sure you are not in manual mode. Most point and shoot digital cameras have an auto mode. Try putting the camera in auto mode to see if that helps. In manual mode you have to select the appropriate Fstop setting (how much light gets through the lens) and the shutter speed (how long the lens stays open during the shot).

I have a Canon Power Shot A720. Outdoor photos are beautiful. Indoor photos are always grainy/blurry...a lot of noise. I have tried the ISP feature but there are only two choices... 1. Auto or 2....


Hi Usually outdoor picture are good within small compact camera. They designed like that. But now your unit just have flash pcb defective. When flash function work, your picture will be good indoor. Regarding your flash unit would be brown fuse or replacement of flash unit. It is 50 and 50 chance. Your local repair shop would charge around $35 to 95 depend on what they really want to charge. Thanks and best regard!

When i take picture,the picture is white n some time become very very bright, but if take video is ok.


this can be usually associated with your white balance in still camera mode.
Check to see your white balance is set correctly or just set it to auto. Also make sure the mode you are in it set. (ie. indoor, outdoor, auto, speed)

My Canon PowerShot A460 cam is working well until yesterday, the biggest festival here in our place took place. teh flash, the lcd screen, etc is working... but, when i took pictures, the lcd screen turns...


Please try and reset the mode of the image to see if the LCD does not go blank when shown to higher light. Also if there is no issue with the indoor pictures then it is possible that the auto light detection is giving a higher value to reset the image balancing. Shift from Auto to manual mode and try.

When taking pictures outside the camera over exposes. Could i have pressed a button that would cause this to happen? when taking pictures indoors the camera takes awsome photos still, but when we go...


Sounds like you set either the aperture to a large small number (large aperture) or the shutter speed to a long value. If this is the case, it should be that in AUTO mode, things work fine, but one of C, M, Av or Tv (custom, manual, aperture priority, shutter priority) modes, the aperture or time are set to something that is good for indoors, but outdoors (where the light is brighter) too much light comes in.

It could also be that the ISO ("film" speed) is set too high for bright light. Again, in AUTO mode, the camera takes care of this setting.

Try each of the shooting modes and see which ones work. If Av is the one that is over-exposed, try making the aperture smaller. If Tv, make the shutter time shorter. If M, make both Aperture smaller and shutter time shorter.

Outdoor pictures reveal white on LCD screen


The sensor for the auto-ISO may be working incorrectly. Try changing the ISO manually for different light modes. You can also try to change the white balance of the LCD. -Setting the white balance: 1. Set the camera to still image mode 2. Press the "Set" button 3. "White Balance" should be the current selection 4. Press the "Flower" button or "Flash" button to move through the available options for white balance 5. Press "Set" again when change appropriately - Setting the ISO: The higher the ISO value, the less light the camera needs to make an exposure, allowing the same exposure to be achieved with higher shutter speeds or smaller apertures. In a digital camera, higher ISO value allows higher shutter speed, at the expense of mottled or grain appearing in the final picture. 1. Set the camera to Still Image mode. 2. Press the "Set" button. 3. Press the "scn" or "timer" button to select ?ISO?. 4. Press the "Flower" or "Flash" button to select the desired setting. 5. Press the "set" button to select. 50/100/200 In the same lighting condition, the higher the ISO value is, the faster the shutter speed will be. I hope this helps.

Canon Powershot S400 take blown out outdoor pictures


The onlything i can sugest you try is to reset the camera. Im not sure how to do this other then to remove the rechargable battery and the button battery. Its a little round silver disk looking thing. Let it sit over night and see if it resets. Have you tried snapping a picture from every mode? TV,AV,SCN,Manual and Auto? Do they look washed out on your computer? Can you take a picture at 640X480 (S) and upload it so i can see what it looks like? Post a link to the image.
