Over exposed

I seem to have accidentally discovered how to manually put gain into my K800i. Might have to read the manual to turn it off again. Quite like the effect though.

so do i. did you hold something dark over the lens, then remove it and snap the shot immediately?

No, I was holding down the joystick to focus (because the button on top doesn't work any more) and it got brighter. I think I saw some numbers on the screen briefly go up to +2. I was possibly pressing the joystick at an angle.

Aha, I've figured it out. Holding your k800i horizontally (screen facing towards you and to the left)...

Joystick right = + gain
Joystick left = - gain

Have you still got a k800i nige?

Thanks factotum. No doubt you'll be seeing more of it, now I've found it.

Just in case you hadn't noticed, you can get to the main Settings functions via the keypad when in camera mode.

I like my k800i, it's a good camera.
I discover most of the operations using it, as you do.

Thanks Hildegard and that does sound like me mara. I tend to learn by playing, cross my fingers I don't break anything and consult the manual when I get stuck.
