Olympus Digital Camera D-490 zoom will not take pictures outdoors

Olympus D-490 camera will not take pictures outdoors. This camera will take beautiful pictures inside with a flash or without or with artificial light but when you take it outside in the sunshine the photo comes out on the LCD screen looking almost like a negative (In color). I tried taping over the light sensor eye to try to take outdoor photos ...still will not work . I have made all attempts in the menu to re-adjust the white sensors and etc... thank you

It sonds like teh shutter is stuck open. If the camera is indera year old it is probably still under warranty. Take it to an authorized repair shop and they will most likely repair it for free.

When i take pictures they show with a pink color? i reset the camera to factory settings but still same pink pics advise?


This FE-340 Olympus is a great camera. Lots of features and usually great results
  • Indoor pictures with flash set on auto WB (white balance) should not be a problem
  • Indoor pictures without flash requires setting the WB to match the light source in the room (incandescent, florescent etc) Outdoor pictures WB on auto generally not a problem
For more help Include a photo with the metadata of the photo from the image data file

Olympus stylus 7030 flash problem


It could be circuit, capacitor or the flash tube itself? Digital cameras are so cheap now that buy a new one is a good choice.

All pictures show as blue


Artificial light is a different colour than daylight. Our eyes compensate, so we don't notice it much. Most digital cameras can compensate too, but whether they do or not depends on the settings. The setting you want to investigate is color balance. If this is set to daylight, it will give an orange cast to pictures taken in tungsten lighting, and a greenish cast to pictures taken in flourescent light. If it is set to artificial light, pictures taken in daylight will have a bluish cast. The best setting for most people is Auto, if your camera has it. That will let your camera decide, and usually it will get it about right.

Can't take a picture without abundant light


Does it work okay in bright sunlight without a flash? If so, try changing the options to factory default.

Yellow cast to indoor pictures, when I take pictures at my kids baskteball games and other indoor events, concerts, etc, the picture has a yellow tone to it, like the light is not sufficient, but it is...


Hello,

This is most likely the White Balance, if the pictures look yellow under artificial light.

I cannot find a manual online so I do not know if you can set the white balance yourself.
If you can, set it to artificial light. Remember to set it back for normal shooting.

You might like to try the Indoor Scene Mode, this should set it for you.

Hope this helps.

Outdoor portraits underexposed


Whenever you are taking pictures of people within six feet of you, it is a good idea to turn on the flash whether you are indoors or out. The Flash mode is easily accessed via the arrow pad on the back of the camera. Press the up arrow key, which has a lightning bolt icon, to enter the Flash Mode. Press the down key to select the lightning bolt icon and press “OK”. The flash will fire every time in this mode. Your outdoor pictures of people should improve in appearance since the flash will fill-in shadows normally apparent in outdoor shots.
