Basic troubleshooting

You can get answers to common questions. Solve problems easily by setting shooting options.

The subject's eyes appear red.

Photos have dust spots.

This is caused by a reflection from the camera flash.

• Set the flash option to

Red-eye

or

Red-eye Fix

. (p. 40)

• If the photo has already been taken, select Red-eye Fix

in the edit menu. (p. 62)

Dust particles floating in the air may be captured in photos when using the flash.

• Turn off the flash or avoid taking photos in a dusty place.

Set ISO speed options. (p. 40)

Photos are blurred.

This may be caused by taking photos in low light conditions or holding the camera incorrectly.

• Press [

Shutter

] halfway down to make sure the subject is focused. (p. 25)

• Use the

mode. (p. 31)

Photos are blurred when shooting at night.

Subjects come out too dark because of backlighting.

As the camera tries to let in more light, the shutter speed slows.

This can make it difficult to steady the camera and may result in camera shake.

• Select Night in the

mode. (p. 30)

Turn on the flash. (p. 39)

Set ISO speed options. (p. 40)

• Use a tripod to prevent your camera from shaking.

When the light source is behind the subject or when there is a high contrast between the light and dark areas, the subject may come out shaded.

• Avoid shooting with the sun behind your subject.

• Select Backlight in the

mode. (p. 30)

• Set the flash option to Fill in

. (p. 40)

• Set the Auto Contrast Balance ( ACB

) option. (p. 46)

Adjust the exposure. (p. 46)

• Set the metering option to

Cautions when using memory cards

• Insert a memory card in the correct direction. Inserting a memory card in the wrong direction may damage your camera and memory card.

• Do not use memory cards that have been formatted by other cameras or by a computer. Reformat the memory card with your camera.

• Turn off the camera when you insert or remove the memory card.

• Do not remove the memory card or turn off your camera while the lamp is blinking, as this may damage your data.

• When the lifespan of a memory card has expired, you cannot store any more photos on the card. Use a new memory card.

• Do not bend, drop, or subject memory cards with heavy impact or pressure.

• Avoid using or storing memory cards near strong magnetic fields.

• Avoid using or keeping memory cards in areas with high temperature, high humidity, or corrosive substances.

• Prevent memory cards from making contact with liquids, dirt, or foreign substances. If dirty, wipe the memory card clean with a soft cloth before you insert the memory card in your camera.

• Do not allow liquids, dirt, or foreign substances to come in contact with memory cards or the memory card slot. Doing so may cause memory cards or the camera to malfunction.

• When you carry a memory card, use a case to protect the card from electrostatic discharges.

• Transfer important data to other media, such as a hard disk,

CD, or DVD.

• When you use the camera for an extended period, the memory card may become warm. This is normal and does not indicate a malfunction.

The manufacturer is not responsible for any loss of data.

Glossary

ACB (Auto Contrast Balance)

This feature automatically improves the contrast of your images when the subject is backlit or when there is a high contrast between your subject and the background.

AEB (Auto Exposure Bracket)

This feature automatically captures several images at different exposures to help you capture a properly-exposed image.

AF (Auto Focus)

A system that automatically focuses the camera lens on the subject.

Your camera uses the contrast to focus automatically.

Aperture

The aperture controls the amount of light that reaches the camera’s sensor.

Camera shake (Blur)

If the camera is moved while the shutter is open, the entire image may appear blurred. This occurs more often when the shutter speed is slow.

Prevent camera shake by raising the sensitivity, using the flash, or using a faster shutter speed. Alternately, use a tripod, the DIS or OIS function to stabilize the camera.

Composition

Composition in photography means arranging objects in a photo.

Usually, abiding by the rule of thirds leads to a good composition.

DCF (Design rule for Camera File system)

A specification to define a file format and file system for digital cameras created by the Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries

Association (JEITA).

Depth of field

The distance between the nearest and farthest points that can be acceptably focused in a photograph. Depth of field varies with lens aperture, focal length, and distance from the camera to the subject.

Selecting a smaller aperture, for example, will increase the depth of field and blur the background of a composition.

Digital zoom

A feature that artificially increases the amount of zoom available with zoom lens (optical zoom). When using the digital zoom, the image quality will deteriorate as the magnification increases.

DPOF (Digital Print Order Format)

A format for writing printing information, such as selected images and number of prints, on a memory card. DPOF-compatible printers, sometimes available at photo shops, can read the information from the card for convenient printing.

Appendixes

96

Glossary

EV (Exposure Value)

All the combinations of the camera’s shutter speed and lens aperture that result in the same exposure.

EV Compensation

This feature allows you to quickly adjust the exposure value measured by the camera, in limited increments, to improve the exposure of your photos. Set the EV compensation to -1.0 EV to adjust the value one step darker and 1.0 EV to one step brighter.

Exif (Exchangeable Image File Format)

A specification to define an image file format for digital cameras created by the Japan Electronic Industries Development Association (JEIDA).

Exposure

The amount of light allowed to reach the camera’s sensor.

Exposure is controlled by a combination of the shutter speed, the aperture value, and ISO sensitivity.

Flash

A speed light that helps to create adequate exposure in low-light conditions.

Focal length

The distance from the middle of the lens to its focal point

(in millimeters). Longer focal lengths result in narrower angles of view and the subject is magnified. Shorter focal lengths result in wider angles of view.

Histogram

A graphical representation of the brightness of an image. The horizontal axis represents the brightness and the vertical axis represents the number of pixels. High points at the left (too dark) and right (too bright) on the histogram indicate a photo that is improperly exposed.

Image sensor

The physical part of a digital camera that contains a photosite for each pixel in the image. Each photosite records the brightness of the light that strikes it during an exposure. Common sensor types are CCD (Charge-coupled Device) and CMOS (Complementary

Metal Oxide Semiconductor).

Appendixes

97

Glossary

ISO sensitivity

The sensitivity of the camera to light, based on the equivalent film speed used in a film camera. At higher ISO sensitivity settings, the camera uses a higher shutter speed, which can reduce blur caused by camera shake and low light. However, images with high sensitivity are more susceptible to noise.

JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group)

A lossy method of compression for digital images. JPEG images are compressed to reduce their overall file size with minimal deterioration of the image resolution.

LCD (Liquid Crystal Display)

A visual display commonly used in consumer electronics. This display needs a separate backlight, such as CCFL or LED, to reproduce colors.

Macro

This feature allows you to capture close-up photos of very small objects. When using the macro feature, the camera can maintain a sharp focus on small objects at a near life-size ratio (1:1).

Metering

The metering refers to the way in which the camera measures the quantity of light to set the exposure.

MJPEG (Motion JPEG)

A video format which is compressed as a JPEG image.

Noise

Misinterpreted pixels in a digital image that may appear as misplaced or random, bright pixels. Noise usually occurs when photos are shot with a high sensitivity or when a sensitivity is automatically set in a dark place.

Optical zoom

This is a general zoom which can enlarge images with a lens and does not deteriorate quality of images.

Quality

An expression of the rate of compression used in a digital image.

Higher quality images have a lower rate of compression, which usually results in a larger file size.

Resolution

The number of pixels present in a digital image. High resolution images contain more pixels and typically show more detail than low resolution images.

Appendixes

98

Glossary

Shutter speed

Shutter speed refers to the amount of time it takes to open and close the shutter, and it is an important factor in the brightness of a photo, as it controls the amount of light which pass through the aperture before it reaches the image sensor. A fast shutter speed allows less time to let light in and the photo becomes darker and more easily freezes subjects in motion.

Vignetting

A reduction of an image’s brightness or saturation at the periphery

(outer edges) compared to the center of the image. Vignetting can draw interest to subjects positioned in the center of an image.

White balance (color balance)

An adjustment of the intensities of colors (typically the primary colors red, green, and blue), in an image. The goal of adjusting the white balance, or color balance, is to correctly render the colors in an image.
