Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Is it safe to take my digital slr out into -C temperatures and then back indoors into the warmth? I am worried that there will be condensation in the body and it will corrode.


Answers :

You're right to worry. Get yourself a cooler(the kind that holds a 6-pack) and put some silica gel packets in the bottom. When you're finished taking pictures in the cold, put the camera in the cooler and keep it closed for at least half an hour after coming in form the cold. That way, it reaches room temp slowly and any stray moisture gets absorbed by the silica gel packets.

Dust Orbs I am having serious problems with "Dust Orbs" appearing in pictures. Mostly indoor pictures. These things are ruining my pictures. Are they caused by the Infrared Beam that the camera uses to focus? Or is something else wrong with my camera? Do ALL digital cameras have this problem with dust? Do DSLR have same problem? How come these dust orbs only appear with Digital Cameras, and not film? I need a digital camera that works indoors. Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance....


Many digital cameras have this problem, though it has nothing to do with the camera being digital. It is small specks of dust in the air being illuminated. You will never see this problem without a flash.\015\012\015\012The reason you see it on digit ... Kodak EasyShare DX7440 Digital Camera

I bought a nikon n55 camera body from ebay..not realizing it was just the body, of course! I then purchased a digital .45x wide angle lens with macro hd. But I still don't have all the parts I need, and I'm in desperate need of help to find out what more I have to buy to complete my camera.

What are the optimal settings for my digital camera? I have a brand new Canon PowerShot 12.1-Megapixel Digital ELPH camera, but I've been really disappointed in the quality of pictures it takes. For example, sometimes there are these smallish blurred white circles on the pictures. Can you recommend optimal settings that I should be using? I use my camera indoors and occasionally outdoors, so whatever settings best cover all different conditions would be ideal.


Small white circles usually means dust on the lens.  Remove the dust with a blowerbrush - not a tissue.\012You are asking for a "1 size fits all" solution for your settings, and indoor and outdoor use really means different settings.   ...

Sigma 17-35 mm AF EX f2.8-4.0 bought for EOS 50 4years ago did not work with with new Canon 400D. Sigma claimed needed new chip. Since August is now back for third time. Noisy focussing, hunting when focussing and inaccurate focussing with both camera bodies. Also does not indicate change in maximum aperture from 17mm to 35mm or indicate lens angle in digital data. Since chip change will not now focus correctly with EOS 50 body.

When shooting indoors with my 300d (base rebel digital),I have been encountering some light metering problems.I use the 430ex as an external flash. While shooting a subject in front of an external light source-(window, etc.), no matter how small of the frame area include the outside light source, the cameras light meter will invaribly expose the entire image based on the outside ambient light, causing the image to be grossly underexposed. Do you have an explanation/solution for this aggrivating


Set the metering mode to Partial Metering. This uses only 9% of the field of view, centered around the middle square in the viewfinder, as the subject area. If you still find it too bright, try changing the exposure compensation a couple of clicks. ... Canon Digital Cameras
