Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I would like to find a video camera that will allow me to freeze frames and get a single image from the video. I take animal pictures and using a regular camera is frustrating. If I could get 10 seconds of video, then take out a single image for a picture, it would help. I do not need more than 1 megaPixel quality. Thanks for the help


Answers :

Sounds like you just mostly have problems with the camera not taking the picture as soon as you push the button. There are some ways to get a single frame from a camera video file, but I think the best way to get what you really need is to have a camera that takes the picture as soon as you push the shutter button. The least expensive option for this is one of the digital SLR's. Nikon sells the D40 for around $400. This would take the picture as soon as you push the button, and you could take about three per second also. Then you could just download the pictures and find the one you liked. To get the single frames from a video will require you to use a special software.

Bought a digital camera two weeks ago, FE3000 Olympus. Cant take a picture without horizontal lines appearing on my LCD.only 20% of the pictures I take are without these lines.

Pink pictures the other day.... I was using my camera and it started showing lines through the image, the image quality was getting worse and worse.  I figured needs new batteries.  So I put new batteries in it and now it takes pink pictures!  How strange my evergreen pictures look in fushia color!   I tried and tried for a couple of weeks, I checked all the settings, even took the batteries out and restarted, but still pink!  all shades of pink!  Here's where it really gets odd, I got my camera

My m1033 won't read the card and only lets me take 6 pictures and then says the internal memory is full. I get the pictures off the camera and card by connecting the camera to my computer, not with a card reader. But it won't let me get the pictures off the card anymore. Just happened yesterday. I removed the card and battery, and replaced them but that didn't help. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Broken Camera Well, I dropped my camera, and tada, it is messed up. It turns on, it takes pictures, but the only button that works is the on/off button and the button to take the pictures. http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=5634183 is the camera, I've had it for 2 years, so the warranty is up. The setting I had it to before had no flash, so now I can't take pictures with flash. If I could get any help, that would be great!


One of the cables connecting to the other buttons probably came out of its socket. It needs to be opened up and checked 1st. Sometimes maybe there is a crack which needs to mended to restore the reset of the button. ... Kodak EasyShare One Digital Camera

I was taking lots of scenery pictures this weekend and usually turn my camera on its side to get longer/narrower shots. Well, I decided to take a video and turned that on its side. When I dropped the pictures and video off on my computer it would let me rotate my pictures but not the video. Is there anyway to rotate a video so i don't have to lay on my side to watch it? Thanks.


Well, if nothing else, you've learned a valuable lesson. Always shoot videos horizontally. There are some expensive editing programs that can rotate the video but with severe loss of quality. ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W1 Digital Camera

Video duration I have a GE A835. I want to take video. It shows that I can only take thirty minutes with a 1 gig card. The only thing that I can think of is that there is some reason it is putting the files on the camera memory instead of the card. I have used all the settings I can find to put video on card. I know that it has to take longer than that. My PHONE will take 14 hours. I would be happpy with less quality for more time. HELP

Capture Error I can successfully take about 10 photos and then get either garbled weird images or a "capture error". I've updated firmware hoping that would help but to no avail.
