Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have a Canon PowerShot SD500, Digital ELPH. It has been WONDERFUL! Since I have used it a lot and for years traveling, I am wondering how much longer it will work. Is there an average lifespan for these cameras? What camera should I replace it with if I want comparable quality and function? What symptoms will develop when it is reaching the age that it will need to be replaced? I hope it lasts forever as it is a wonderful camera. The only thing it doesn't do is video.

Cameras usually last quite a while as long as they are well taken care of. Every camera is different and I couldn't tell you of any specific lifespan but it may work 5-10 years more. Technology is rapidly changing and newer cameras are cheaper and better constantly. Whenever you feel that the cameras on the market are better quality than the one you have or whenever it breaks is when I would get a new one. Canons are very good and whatever the latest line is, I would recommend you just getting another one of those. I personally use Kodak cameras since I know that hold up generally very good and have not had any problems with them but I typically don't buy for absolute quality cameras but I think good.

Grainy Pictures I have had my olympus stylus 710 for about 6 months and have been noticing more and more grainy pictures once developed. They are usually when taken indoors. It doesn't look grainy on the LCD screen but when they are developed it is very grainy. This even happens when the flash is used. Any suggestions? Is there a setting I can change for higher quality pictures? I have a gig memory so I don't care if I am going to be using a lot of space. Got 7.1 megapixels and want to use

Looking for an expert familiar with the Panasonic SuperCam AG-DP800. I want to restore a few that I have collected. Problem: noisy video output (lines). Defective electrolytic capacitors I presume. Does the problem affect a particular rating of capacitor or all caps? Is only the video board (VEP03801A) affected or should I replace caps on all boards? Would like to find a technician who can replace whatever is affected. Cannot find anyone in my area yet (WA state). Thank you.

This type of problem is probably being caused by a faulty electrolytic(s), but you would have to have a scope to pinpoint the source, and take it from there. Your best shot would be to go to Panasonic support, and see what they can do, and how much ... Digital Cameras
