Resolution Problem I just purchased a 14n and perhaps I'm doing something wrong but I set the resolution to 13.5mb and my files are coming up 6mb or even less. Also the color and sharpness seem to be off. I have been using a Fuji S1 with great results but wanted to move up to the 14n for it's high resolution capabilties but I don't seem to be getting it. Any help would be most appreciated.


To get the full resolution the 14N offers, you have to shoot raw files. The camera will shoot raw at several resolutions, as well as J-Pegs, see your owner's manual. The 14N will not shoot in-camera to a tiff. Once you turn the raw file into a tiff u ... Kodak DCS 14n Digital Camera

The batteries always seem to drain shortly after putting them into the camera, no matter what type or brand of battery I use. Help!!!

Camera turns on normally. But when I push to take a picture, the screen goes black and it turns itself off. Tried recharging batteries and it helped a bit. But the battery charge only lasted a very short time. This doesn't seem like the typical low-battery that I've always seen with this camera.

I lost my camera for a while and it seems like one of my kids must have hid it. It was relatively new when it was lost. However, my screen seems like it's not calibrated. When I touch the screen it's not responsive, however every once in a while i'll get lucky and it will work. I've managed to recalibrate it so I don't think that's the problem. Does this sound familiar?

Images I seem to get yellowish images and images that are really dark even when I put the flash on. The flash seems weak, almost defected. But then in the next series of shots it will work and the picture will come out just fine.

No that isn't it but I am not offended. The flash in fact looks like it goes off but at 10% of the full strength. I had other people try to take a picture to see if the same thing happened to them and it did and I saw them, they did not have their ha ... Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera

I have a relatively new camera. The battery seems to keep draining way faster than other cameras I have had. i.e. took about 70 pictures and it drained. Do I have to constantly recharge it?

I had my nikon coolpix s210 in my bag and I bumped against a wall, not that hard it seemed. I checked my camera and everything seemed fine but once I turned it on a big crack appeared on the screen. Is it worth the fix or should I just buy a new one? I checked the camera shortly before I placed it in my bag so I don't think the break came before the incident. But I'm heart broken and desperate for my camera. Please help if possible. Thank you.

Taking pictures I have a pink Sanyo VPC-S770 7.1 megapixel camera. When I hit the picture button, everything goes black. The lens does not retract, but the LCD goes black, and the camera seems like it turns off. I have not dropped it or put it anywhere dangerous for the camera. I don't know how to fix the problem, but I definitely would like it fixed. I bought the camera in July, if that helps.
