Answers :

If the images are okay in the camera but not on the computer, connect directly to the computer with either your camera or card reader. If you're using a USB hub, bypass it. Plug directly into the computer instead. A USB hub will sometimes scramble a picture file.

Shutter speed Hi all, I just recently bought the s400, and I love the camera, though I will admit I was disappointed that I couldn't control the shutter speed. I am confused though, becuase looking at reviews and pictures taken by the s400 the author said what the shutter speed was - how could they possibly know that? Is there a way to tell what your shutter speed is? I can't figure it out .. It is said that shutter is best at 1/125 for motion pictures - so how will I know if thats what my sh

My D80 fell from a foot n half above the ground level well packed in a good quality carry case few days back.uv filter attached to 18-135 Nikor lens cracked & lens cap was jammed. After carefully removing pieces of the uv filter & taking pictures dark patches appear top corners of pictures taken. What could have gone wrong & how serious does the problem look?


Hi, allow me to suggest using another lens to see if you still see the dark patches in the top corners. If not it is the lens, if so it is the camera. Either way it sounds as though something is maladjusted. Call Nikon digital 1-800-645-6689. ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

Faulty Lens? Sometimes when looking through the LCD screen the colours appear blended, overlapping and blotchy which makes it difficult to get a clear view of the item to be photographed. upon turning on (sliding open lense cover) screen view is distorted, "stretched", and item to be photographed is almost unidentifiable. Camera operates but pictures taken are "stretched" and distorted. However, stored pictures can be retrieved and are normal. Any advice?

The battery will only last for about 10 pictures and then it goes dead. I also have lines appear at the bottom of each picture. They look like stripes that gradually fade as they move up the digital screen. I bought it a few days ago and I've taken less than 20 pics before it started doing this. Is there a quick solution?

I have a mesasge that says 'write protect' which stops me from taking any pictures. I can view photo's already taken, but can't delete any. I'm not sure how or why (could of been the kids...) this message started appearing. I've tried taking the battery out and putting it back in, looking for an 'unlock' kind of tab, but can't see one. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Many thanks.


You didn't specify the make and model of your camera, so I'm assuming it uses SD cards.Look at the memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes ... Digital Cameras

I've gotten a response to my question about why the date won't print on pictures (thank you - the entire MANUAL will prove quite helpful, but...there's more): Why doesn't the date AUTOMATICALLY appear on each and every picture taken, AS THE PICTURE IS TAKEN? Why must I go through the process of adding a date picture-by-picture?


"C'est la vie" I'm afraid. You may be able to buy a camera which has this feature, part of the research process before you buy.\015\012\015\012I personally wouldn't want to see the date printed on a picture. It is worth noting though, tha ... Digital Cameras
