Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

When I take a photo with my Nikon D90 in auto mode and flash i get a dark spot on the bottom of the image on the lcd that resembles a shadow. there is no shadow in the picture. What is casuing this?


Answers :

This is more than likely a shadow from your lens. The on-camera flash is in a fairly low position, and I am able to duplicate your description when using my D200 on-camera flash and a physically longer lens- in my case a 28-70 F2.8 lens. Using a hot-shoe mounted flash will clear this issue up completely and give you more control options as well. Worth the money that one costs, in my opinion.

The LCD Monitor of my Canon PowerShot A95 shows purple, white, and black horizontal lines instead of a clear image of what is in the Viewfinder. Pictures taken while showing up this way on the LCD Monitor turn out with the same fuzzy stripes. Light lines show up in the well-lit areas of the scene and dark lines show up where the scene is dark. The problem was intermittent for months but now cannot be corrected by powering off. Thanks, Steve

Camera Freeze Sometimes when I snap the shutter, the camera frezes, a very small red light quickly flashes (which is located to the right and bottom of the LCD on the back of the camera), and in the LCD there is the following display: D: 3C85 To clear the camera, I have to turn it off, then back on. Often it will do this several times in a row. The odd thing is, it does take a picture as the image is stored on the memory card. Help!
