Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W100 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Flash I used to be able to switch the flash settings on the camera, when it's on 'auto adjustment', from on to off or automatic but now its just stuck on off and it doesn't allow me to change the settings. The only choice I have is to attempt using the 'twilight portrait' but I don't get the same effect.

My problem is similar. Takes photo fine. Views most recent photo fine. Cannot zoom. Cannot regulate flash. Cannot scroll photos. Cannot delete. Essentially, all those buttons are non-responsive. I first noticed it with the flash. Can you do these other things? I think it is an internal failure. Just past one year old. Has been subject to tempurature change lately.

How do I adjust my flash mode on auto shooting mode?

I don't know the Leica camera, but the auto mode means the camera does take care of everything. The only thing you can do is choose the camera, not to use the flash, so it needs to measure and use a higher ISO. But if you want to adjust the flash, see what the camera did choose for shutter speed and aperture. Then put it in manual, choose the same and use your flash to the setting you want. Then adjust your settings. Can be the speed and or aperture, but also the flash to 1/2 1/4 or moe.

Can i use my vivitar 4600 with my nikon d300s?

Yes. You can use the flash in auto or manual mode by setting the camera to manual shutter speed within the x-sync range and then selecting the aperture prescribed by the flash guide number or the displayed automatic f-stop on the flash. The flash can provide auto exposure with the camera in manual mode, but you need to be aware of the amount of ambient light which will not cause any exposure corrections by the camera in this mode. Another alternative is to select Aperture preferred automatic on the camera and the f-stop shown for the auto flash settings. This will allow the camera to vary the shutter speed but may cause long exposures if the camera is not sensitive to real-time flash readings.

Nikon d40x cannot force flash on auto mode

That is correct. Auto mode is exactly what the name says. The camera automatically decides whether to use the flash or not.

If you need to use the flash, switch to one of the non-auto exposure modes, such as P.

Auto Function Failed

It could be a communication error between the flash and the camera. Check the shoe foot for any damage or stuck pins. All of them must make proper contact with the hot shoe on the camera to get full auto/TTL, same for the shoe of the camera, bent? dirty contacts?

Shooting modes

The Shooting modes are as follows: Program Auto (Factory default setting) Used for regular photography. The camera automatically makes the settings for natural color balance. Other functions, such as the flash mode and metering, can be adjusted manually. Portrait Suitable for taking a portrait-style shot of a person. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. Landscape Suitable for taking photos of landscapes and other outdoor scenes. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. Night scene Suitable for shooting pictures in the evening or at night. The camera sets a slower shutter speed than is used in normal shooting. If you take a picture of a street at night in any other mode, the lack of brightness will result in a dark picture with only dots of light showing. In this mode, the true appearance of the street is captured. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. If you use the flash, you can take pictures of both the subject and the background. Self Portrait Enables you to take a picture of yourself while holding the camera. Point the lens towards yourself and the focus will be locked on you. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. The zoom is fixed in the Wide position and cannot be changed.
