Question about Samsung Digimax i5 Digital Camera

Overexposed exterior shots?

Recent problem with using the camera outside. Photos are a total white out! Seems to be okay with interior shots but even if it approaches a window from the inside the screen flares up. I have been told to change the ISO value, doesn't seem to affect the problem either for better or worse. Not that technically competent so any step by step guide to what may be the problem is much appreciated! Many thanks.

    When zooming in it seems only the odd or even lines are to bright.

Best Solutionposted on May 20, 2007 By Noggin Rank: Guru Rating: 85.39%, 375 votes Here is the link for the user manual for your camera; http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/conten... Check page 53 (Metering) and try the two different settings to see if you get a change Check Page 43 and 45 (Exposure compensation) and try playing with the settings Check page 44 abd 45 (ISO sensitivity/White balance) and also have a play around If none of this works then check page 103 for reset to default settings instructions. If none of this solves the problem please post again - Hope it helps :) Comment by Noggin, posted on May 20, 2007 ps for samsung tech support on digital cameras you need to look at the global sites, not the US site - don't know why - the link to the global sites are available on the US samsung site. This really worked for me....to set it back to default setting...I had no more trouble! Try it. I removed my memory chip before I did this so nothing would happen to the photos. I doubt it would have any bearing, but I was being precautious.

Pictures are over exposed when outside


You may have the settings wrong. Check in the MENU to see if you have it set to "inside" pics rather than outside.
Also the ISO has a lot to do with the exposure. If the iso is set too low outside sunlight pics will be white or overexposed. Try setting ISO on wheel for various options select program mode button and MENU select ISO 120 or 250. These are are pretty general settings. the flash will only engage inside or outside if the light is low ( like evening) I suspect your ISO setting is at a setting that is incompatible with bright sunlight
t
Also select White Balance and move it to DAYLIGHT

take a few shots inside and out to see if there is an improvement.

White lines


defective image processor. use in continuous mode, but take only 1 shot. may not be expensive to fix. not user serviceable, and not something you can't live with if you can take images in cont mode.
consider having it evaluated by the factory and getting a quote for repair if it bothers you not being able to shoot in single shot mode.
nikon does seem to have more trouble than most in their non-premium products.
good luck

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Fuji should fix this for you for free. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:

White screen with ghost images


If the photo shoot out show white , the obscure (quality variation), and even horizontal line ( white lines), and so on over-exposure cases, even if the use of anti-tremor, set to default values are invalid, because the camera shutter fault.

It's need repair camera machine shutter.

Outside shots just come out white


Or do you mean a white mare? Check your manual to make sure that a setting has not been over looked. It seems as if the light metering has gone askew You should also check that you are not covering a 'window' with a finger when taking shots- thus blocking the light thus making it read low light. If all this is to no avail - check out the Fuji technical help team. But give much more detail than you have given us here

Washed out pictures outside


I'm not familiar with that exact camera, but buried in the cameras menus - there are various options to set the camera to such setting as auto exposure and that sort of thing. Sounds like you may have discovered that already. In addition, some cameras offer a "white balance" setting - and that should be set on day light.
