    My L50 is OK some time back but now it only gives well balanced images on 2x and above optical zoom, below this it gives brighter images and sometimes nearly white images. Is this a self fixable? Can you suggest some settings that can cure it or it's also firmware problem? Please HELP !

The place to go is the Samsung Tech Support team This is not a 'self' fixable problem# It is a firmware fault which may be fixable by Samsung Free or for a modest charge - depends on the age of the camera. I the charge is not modest then the next stop is a new camera

Samsung L50: I get a very blurry - near white image when taking pics outside. Inside the pics look ok, a little blurry though. Movie recording works fine. Help please. Tried changing batteries, reseting...

Check if you are using Auto settings. It seems you are using Manual (M) and the exposure time is too long for outside conditions (inside there is less light).
Switch the camera to Auto and it should work fine. Please let us know how it went.

How to overlay picture in D40x camera

Overlaying pictures, like almost all photo manipulations, is better done on a computer using "real" software rather than on a camera. You get much more control on a computer. However, the D40 does have a wide repertoire of photo manipulation capabilities.

In order to overlay images, you must be shooting in RAW (or RAW+JPEG). Select Image Overlay from the Retouch menu. A preview dialog will be displayed with Image 1 highlighted. Press OK to get a photo selection dialog. Use left/right to highlight the first picture in the overlay. (You can press and hold the Zoom button to see the selected photo fullscreen.) Press OK to select the image. Optimize exposure for the image by pressing up/down. Press left/right to highlight Image 2. Select the second image the same way. Press left/right to highlight the Preview column. Overlay will show you the result, allowing you to go back and change things if you wish. Save will save the overlaid photo.

The shadow in the lower portion of your camera is probably caused by the lens hood. The solution is simple: remove the lens hood whenever you're using the built-in flash.

How to shoot in black and white?

This camera is not capable to shoot images in black and white as this is not a menu selectable feature of this camera. You can take the image in color and then download it to your computer and then using photo editing software change the image to black and white or monotone using the edit function in that photo editing program.

Photo appears saturated green when set on manual setting

The image you selected for Custom WB is probably inappropriate - it may be shot somewhere else with different lighting or not enough of the image is white/grey. To do a proper Custom WB, take a picture of a white or grey card in the same lighting conditions as your subject. Go to menu, select Custom WB and choose that image. Then set your WB mode to Custom (if it's not already).

When you move to another site to take other photos, you must change your Custom WB image to another 'current' one. As the sun progresses through the day, your Custom WB will need to change as well. Auto WB will, in most conditions, be able to deal with changing light if you prefer not to keep updating your Custom WB.

Fuzzy Images

There is insufficient light indoors, so the camera is selecting a slow shutter speed, which is causing camera shake, hence the 'fuzziness'.

Too bright pictures

Try doing a test of the same image using different "modes" and compare the results - it may just be that you've got the wrong setting.

Image quality

Hi,

Many factors can affect the image quality of your pictures. If you are experiencing blurry images, please try adjusting the focus ring located around the lens.

This will allow you to focus the camera image on objects at different distances.

Also, make sure there is good lighting. Improving the lighting conditions can improve the image quality considerably.

Connection Issues:

If the image quality is poor while transmitting video over the Internet using video enabled programs such as MSN Messenger, Yahoo! or AOL Instant Messenger, your connection speed to the Internet directly affects the image quality of the transmitted video.

Corporate LAN, DSL/cable modem connections will result in the best image quality experience, while dial-up connections may result in choppy and overall poor quality because of the slower connection speed.

Even broadband connections such as DSL/cable modem may experience choppy video at times because of Internet traffic or slow upload speeds.

If the image appears clearly in the camera software, most likely your Internet connection may be responsible for the poor image quality in your video program.

Changing Display Adapter Settings:

If you are still experiencing a distorted, fuzzy or grainy image, you may need to change the settings for your display adapter.

For optimal image quality, please make sure the video display adapter is set to display at least 16-bit high color or higher.

To change the color palette please perform the following steps:

Click on "Start," "Settings," and "Control Panel."

Double-click on the Display icon.

Click on the tab labeled Settings.

In the dialog box labeled Color Palette, verify the video mode is set to 16-bit (high color) or 24-bit (true color).

Also, check with the manufacturer of the video card for updated video drivers.

Low Light Boost:

If you cannot do anything to improve the lighting situation, some Logitech video cameras have an option for "Low Light Boost."

If there is an option for "Low Light Boost," try enabling the "Low Light Boost" in the QuickCam software.

To do this:

Open the QuickCam software.

At the bottom right hand corner of the camera image box, click on the arrow next to the QuickCam icon.

Choose "Advanced Camera Settings".

Under the Image Enhancement box, place a check mark in the "Low Light Boost" option.

If that does not improve the image quality, try adjusting the other image settings, such as contrast, saturation brightness, gain and white balance.

Click OK when your are done.

Last, make sure that you ae using the latest drivers.

You can upodate them from here.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.

Can,t download or burn photos

Most likey the images have been moved from the orginal location. Try locating them by clicking on the Start Menu...Search...Pictures, Music or Video and check off the "Pictures and Photo's" box. Let the search run and see you can find your pictures. Right click on the white space in the seadch results windows and click on View...Thumbnails if you need to view the pics.

If you hover your mouse over the image it should tell you were the image is located (such as C:\Documents and Settings\(Username)\My Documents\My Pictures\(filename).jpg)
You can then go back to Photoshop open the image by going to that directory.

White circles appear on the image. Why is that and what can I do?

When shooting with flash in a location where there are many suspended particles, such as in a dusty area or on a snowy day, the image may contain white circles as shown in the picture below. Why does this happen? If the flash fires when a suspended particle floats right in front of the lens, the reflection of the flash from the particle appears more intensely than that of the subject, as the particle is much closer to the lens than the subject. Therefore, the reflection of the flash turns out in the image and causes an effect such as that shown in the sample image above. The closer the lens and strobe are located, allowing suspended particles to be exposed to more light, the more frequently this effect can occur. How can I avoid this effect? Ideally, it is best to shoot in locations where there are very few suspended particles. If not, you can use following method to prevent this effect. a) Avoid using flash by lighting the area as much as possible. b) If your camera has a zoom function, shoot at a wide angle.
