I am using an Olympus E-500. and am trying to use the built in flash, set to one eight or to one sixty fourth of normal output, to trigger an external flash unit.

Hi, I have just bought the Panasonic FZ45 and seem to have a problem with the flash. It will not pop up automatically when in "IA" mode. The display actually shows the symbol indicating that the flash is forced off. Have tried to change this using the REC set up menu but to no avail (incidentally the option to force the flash off appears in the user manual, but not on the REC menu). I have searched some of the forums on the web and it has been suggested that the FZ45 does not have an auto fla

Flash has stopped working on my Nikon D40. I've tried a factory reset, tried to get to the flash setting but that menu option is no longer available (highlighted) in any mode. I'm thinking it's broken and not a setting thing. Everything else works fine and it still takes pictures just without the flash. The flash pops up when needed but no flash obviously.

Hi, I recently purchased a D2Xs floor model or demo unit form a liquidation company here is Kansas City. The problem is that I have no menu options and the only thing that comes up when I access the menu on the camera is a small setup menu with about 6-7 options, none of which include a reset or any additional features. This renders the camera practically useless as most of my dials will not work because they need to be directed by the firmware. How can I reinstall the original version 1.0 firmw

We are now on our 3rd 5.0 bushnell night sentry camera and the night pictures are black. With the second camera, we might get the first picture where the flash goes off, but the subsequent ones are black. We have replaced batteries and also have a solar panel. We did use this same model of camera last winter and were getting beautiful night pictures so we decided to get a second one. Day photos are beautiful. Help!
