A histogram on what? If you want to see a histogram on your camera, the camera must have the possibility to do so. For that check the manual. When you use a program like Adobe PS or LR, they show you the histogram in levels and curves.

I cannot take photos when i shot with manual mode.The shutter clicks but no picture is actually taken.Darkness.The auto mode works fine.Lens Nikkor Micro AF-S 105mm.Drives me crazy


When you shoot in manual mode, make sure your camera sensor gets enough light. When you shoot inside with dimm light at 1/1000 of a second or faster and a aperture of 8. all pictures will be black.
The best way to learn shooting in manual, is to shoot a picture in the P mode and put the picture on the screen (>) button. then select the info, where you see time, aperture iso and so on. and even better select the histogram. Note the figures in your head (or on paper) and then goto manual and make sure you have almost the same settings. Then shoot en look what the histogram shows. No histogram on the right, means to little light, so lower the shutter speed, open the diaphragm or increase the ISO. No histogram on the left, means to much light, so higher shutter speed, lower ISO or smaler diaphragm (the aperture number must be up. 3,6 is wide open 16 is almost closed.

Histogram shouldbe on or off on lumix camera


The histogram is a tool that is useful to the photographer that shows a graph that represents how much color or bright and dark areas are in a photo. If you're looking at a photo that has a larger portion of the histogram graph on the left, it means there's a lot of dark / black tones - and that details in those areas are likely lost. The same holds true if the graph was heavy to the right edge - but it would mean there is a lot of bright or whites. Subtle details in these areas would also be lost. You can use the graph to adjust your exposure so that these details are visible. A wedding dress that lacks the fine lace details because the whites were "blown" (over-exposed) lacks interest when compared to a photo that preserves the details. Here's a link to a site with some great info in general - and about histograms specifically. Check it out.

Tinker with exposure settings to move the large areas of the graph away from the edges - this will show the details. You can switch the histogram off and on as you see fit.

My pictures are coming out too dark


There are four ways to make the image lighter
a) more light (flash, sun, etc)
b) slower shutter speed (allows more time for light to "expose" the sensor)
c) larger aperture (bigger hole = more light)
d) higher ISO (basically, amplify the available light more).

If you are using a point and shoot camera, the flash is usually only good for about 10 feet, so trying to get a good bright picture of subjects further away won't work.

Items b, c, and d are handled by the camera in automatic mode. In manual mode, set the iso has high as it can go. Set the aperture as large as it can go, and decrease the shutter speed.

Depending on the camera, you can enable the histogram to see if the images are too dark, usually by pressing the display button while taking pictures. If the histogram is off to the left edge, the picture will be too dark.

In post-processing, (e.g. photoshop), you can use Levels (control-shift-L for auto-levels) and it will move the histogram to the right, making the picture look brighter.

Can I remove histogram which apears on screen when taking a photo? It is distracting!


While the histogram can be distracting, it can be very useful to ensure that your image is well composed and the lighting is good.

To remove the histogram, put the camera in video or picture taking mode, press the up arrow (disp) key to cycle through three different display types: Histogram + indicators on (where you are now), nothing but the picture (where you want to be) and picture with indicators. Indicators include battery charge state, image quality, etc. Not needed while taking pictures, but nice to be able to take a look.

See page 33 of the manual for your camera.

Histograms still elude me, as what I often perceive as a good histogram doesn't always result in good exposures on the computer


Hi Joseph.
If the histogram looks OK (mind you that takes quite a bit of experience to judge properly) then your picture should be OK. If not, it may well be the calibration of your monitor that is the problem.
Out of curiosity, how are you judging that the histogram should produce a good exposure? Does the exposure look OK on the camera's monitor?

Sony dsc-d770 histogram


Yes. It can be set to automatically show the histogram after every exosure, or on demand by pressing the review button twice. Both are done in CAM mode.
