SOURCE: Nikon D60 is suddenly taking very dark pictures

I have had "dark pictures" from each of my Nikon DSLR (D70, D80, D200, D300) cameras usually when taking pictures from a tripod and/or the self timer. Situations where you take your eye away from the viewfinder which allows stray light to enter thru the viewfinder and throw the auto exposure way off. Not sure if this is what is happening to you.

SOURCE: WHY DOES MY NIKON D60 BUILT IN FLASH FAIL TO WORK

Hello

Thank you for using
FixYa for your problem

Always check the batteries first but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty. It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.


Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

SOURCE: My nikon D60 is taking dark photos.

The only reason the camera will be taking dark photos is when it is under exposing the image taken. This can be due to the exposure compensation set to under expose the metered exposure. Make sure the expsosure compensation is set to '0' or increase it to compensate for the dark photos.

Also inaccurately metering a scene (such as a high contrast scene) can easily fool the meter into under exposing, especially outdoors.

Canon 60d internal flash not popping up


Check the metal tabs inside the notable rails as they need to touch the upper part of the rails to allow built in flash to work
Use a micro screwdriver to push the tabs up to the rail
GENTLY as that was what was wrong with my canon digital body

THE FLASH ON MY NIKON P500 IS NOT WORKING WHEN IT IS RAISED AND I SELECT FLASH ON IT SAYS RAISE FLASH HOW I CAN THIS


To be sure something could be wrong with your camera flash, please put the camera in automatic and try making a picture in a dark situation. The flash should be pop up and fire, when the camera is in focus, and you press the shutter button fully.
Perhaps you know there are situations, the flash does not fire, even when you open it yourself. In the P, S, A and M, it only can fire if the ISO setting is on auto. Some scenes you can select, also won't fire the flash, even when you put it up.
there are more things, to shooting with flash than jute putting it up.
But when you try it like I said above you schools see a flash icon on the display for a few seconds and the flash should fire. If not, I'm afraid you must contact the Nikon service centre close by you.

success.

My sony cyber-shot DSC-H10 flash stopped working. The flash pops up like it is going to work, but does not flash. I can take pictures but with noflash. Can you help me?


You flash is in ' Flash forced OFF ' position.Press on the flash control button repeatedly until one of the four modes are selected.

1.Flash Auto - Flashes when there is insufficient light or backlight ( Default Setting )

2.Flash forced on

3.Slow synchro - The shutter speed is slow in a dark place to clearly shoot the background that is out of flash light.

4.Flash forced off - ( Your current mode ).The flash automatically pops up and strobes when using the flash.Close the flash by hand after use.

Pictures very dark even with a light meter


Digital cameras operate on a delayed shutter. Your Camera and flash are not synchronized. Try adjusting flash to a slower speed. Or the cameras Fstop value to get them insync.

If you half push the shutter the rangefinder and focus circuits kick in and will adjust to available light and give you your best picture. Do not ever push the shutter in one step. press it slightly to get the best focus and then push the last millimeter to get the picture!

The flash pops up, but it doesn't flash


It is normal that when you press the shutter button half the flash won't fire because you're focusing on a subject upon pressing the shutter half way

It's just like you are locking a subject upon pressing the shutter half way

Delayed Shutter, No Flash, and Menu Issues


Pls check your camera settings. Your shutter may be set to 10" (meaning 10 seconds). That is probably also why your pop up flash does not go up... because it feels that it will already get over-exposed pics.

To check if it is not a hardware problem, change your settings to Auto and try to shoot in a dark room.

Photos washed out or completly dark


Sorry to say this sounds like a stuck shutter mechanism. Put the camera in any mode other than auto and make certain that you turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself in the following step). Next look down the center of the lens barrel and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker (wonder where that website got that name?) in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen then it's likely stuck.

Some people have had success in unsticking Canon S2 IS shutters with the following procedures. It may or may not work for you:

Dark Picture


I am assuming the following two things.

1. The part was indoors.
2. You are using the 18-135 mm lens with the Nikon D80.

The problem with shooting indoors is that not enough light goes in through the lens to the filter. Solutions:

1. Use the flash with every shot. In case there is not flashlight available, use the on board flash. Press the top button behind the barrel on the camera. It has a lighting icon. It will pop open the flash. If you are in 'P', 'A', 'S' mode, the camera will sync the shutter speed with flash. If the camera is on auto mode (The green camera icon) the flash will pop up and fire by itself.

2. Use the lens with with lowest f stop, i.e. with bigger aperture.

3. Increase ISO. You ought to get usable photographs right up to 800. To change ISO, press the button on the back of the camera which says 'ISO' (Second button from bottom) and turn the primary command dial simultaneously to change ISO setting. Higher ISO speed = Lower shutter speed (But less clarity too).

Hope it helps.
