Why is the entire photo of my Canon PowerShot overexposed?

I use my camera since 2016. This is Canon PowerShot sx420. One month ago, one of my friends took my camera with me for a few photos. Now he brings this back to me. But the problem is, if I take a picture, it will be overexposed. But it looks so clean and perfect when I focus on a subject. However, after taking the photo, it turns completely white. What is the problem with my camera and what can I do now?

Color Correction – Why is the JPEG imported from my Canon Powershot G9X Mark II significantly different from the camera screen?

Look at the enclosed example pictures. I took them at 4:50 am and 3:50 am respectively. They were full of light on the Powershot camera's Live View display.

The pictures were taken as JPEG (yes, I should have taken that in RAW and found out the shadows later, but the screen told me the shadows were ok, so I did not bother with that). IrfanView claims that the color space is sRGB and there is no explicit color space setting in the camera. The laptop screen is IPS 8-bit 1920×1080 14 "(Lenovo Thinkpad L440) .I do not" import "the images into any application, just copy the files with Wiindows Explorer.The operating system is Windows 7 64-bit, fully legal, OEM preinstalled by Lenovo.

  • Look at the first picture. The shadows under the fuselage of the utility vehicle did not blend in with the color of the fuselage, which was gray and the detail well visible. On the PC screen, this area is really dark, almost black. Next, the trees in the background lose details in the shadows as well as on the PC.

  • Now look at the second picture. It's not as dramatic a change as the first one, but the whole picture on the camera screen is still brighter, with better visibility in darker areas and slightly better contrast, and the water is more vivid, bluer than gray. I like the water more than from the camera.

Hence the following questions.

  1. Is there a hidden conversion in the camera before the image is displayed on the Live View screen? Note that there is no RAW file for processing and viewing. The problem occurs with pure JPEG recordings.
  2. Is the camera screen equipped with a 10-bit panel or another color space?
  3. Is adjusting the photo settings for the next shot based on displaying the result of the previous shot in live view the right way to find the right settings for a specific shot?
  4. Can I see the same picture on the PC display and if so, how?

P.S. The supply ship is static at this point, so I can take the picture again while the discussion unfolds with the corrections made.

Does Canon Powershot SX520HS support tethering?

It's hard to be 100% sure (the lack of evidence is not necessarily a proof of absence), but apparently no, the SX520HS does not support tethering.

  1. It is not displayed in a list of cameras for which TetherTools offers solutions / support. The list of cameras that support tethering is not complete very wide.

  2. This reddit thread indicates that not even a remote trigger option is available, let alone tethering.

  3. Although this Canon community thread is not authorized by Canon itself, it says the same thing as the Reddit thread – there is no remote trigger available.

Due to the lack of a remote trigger (which might actually be enough for stop motion purposes) and the lack of support for TetherTools, I seriously doubt that the camera supports tethering.

Can I get a manual focus lens for my Canon PowerShot camera?

This lens is listed as compatible with Canon EOS-M cameras, which are interchangeable lens cameras. The PowerShot cameras do not have a replaceable lens. No, it is not compatible with your SX530.

I can not speak with the quality of the lens, but the lack of any reviews on Amazon says something … Like the fact that a simple Google search for "Brightin Star" shows … nothing.

Use only Canon DPP to correct the lens for my Powershot G7X Mark II and export RAW

I recently bought a Canon Powershot G7X Mark II. I use Linux and found that Darktable is a decent photo editor. My RAW images, however, have a distortion that darkens the corners and displays my photos as if I had a vignette.

I looked at the list of Lensfun cameras and the Mark II model is not yet supported.

Then I learned something about Canon DPP, which also includes the lens correction. This happens automatically when I open the photos in DPP.

Apart from the fact that DPP is only available on Windows, I can not figure out how to apply the lens correction to the RAW files and save it to another location that can be accessed on Linux.

I have saved some of these files in TIFF format to see if they are as editable as a RAW file. However, when I compare the edited files in the Darktable (RAW vs. TIFF), they differ significantly.
