Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I often get dark areas in the upper corners of my Sony A350 photos taken with a flash. I don't use a lens hood.


Answers :

THIS PROBLEM IS USUALLY CAUSED BY THE BUILT IN LENS SHIELD THAT ALL DIGITAL CAMERA'S HAVE, THE FAILS TO FULLY OPEN AND U GET SHADING ON THE EDGES OF THE PICTURES, CHECK THIS 1ST, IF THAT TURNS OUT TO BE THE CASE U WILL NEED TO SEND THE CAMERA IN FOR REPAIR OR REPLACE IT WHICH EVER IS CHEAPER, U CAN'T REPAIR IT YOURSELF FOR THIS REASON, SONY DOESN'T SELL PARTS OR REPAIR MANUALS TO THE PUBLIC, THE ONLY WAY TO GET THE CAMERA REPAIRED IS TO SEND IT IN TO A SONY REPAIR STATION, THE PHONE NUMBERS FOR SERVICE ARE IN YOUR CAMER'S USER MANUAL, CALL AND INQUIRE ABOUT THIS REPAIR, IF THE LENS SHIELD SEEMS TO RETRACT FULLY THE CAMERA STILL HAS A PROBLEM WITH THE LIGHT SENSOR (CALLED THE CCD) THAT ONCE AGAIN WILL REQUIRE A TRIP TO A SONY REPAIR CENTER.

I have a Caonon 40D. I thought I was having a lens problem at first. However after using 2 other lenses I have found out it is my Camera. No matter how clear and crisp the image is in the view finder. After the photo is taken and loaded into PS4. The image is blurry and unsharp. I have reset all camera settings to factory with Canon. And I am still getting the same results. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

After almost two years, pictures taken with my Nikon D80 are showing a black dot in the middle of the photo. You can't see it in the view finder and it shows up on all the pictures I take regardless of which lens I use. The mirror inside the camera does not have the black dot on it either. Is it a problem with the sensor? How can I get it fixed?

When i turn my camera on, it seems fine, all buttons functional. When i take a photo, it flashes, but no photo will pop up in my screen. Instead the screen stays black, and then the battery starts to get really warm. then i cant turn it on or off, the only way to get the batter to stop heating up, is to take it out of the camera. i can put the battery back in, turn it on again, but it will say no pictures had been taken, and the problem continues every time i try and use it. There is no history

Black photos When I turn on my camera (Nikon Coolpix S5, I believe), I can access old photos and see the symbols that are usually on the screen when it used to take photos. However, if I take a photo with it, it is just black. The camera flashes and acts like it has taken a photo. There is no lens cap, so that is not the problem. Is the camera simply broken?

Photos unread I have an Olympus Stylus 720 SW with the same problem. When I upload photos, some are corrupted and are chopped with parts of the photo misplaced. It has nothing to do with computer as it does this on all computers. I'm not using a reader, but simply uploading VIA USB cable. Some photos are so corrupted, I cannot even get a partial view of the choppy remnant of the photo taken. Could this be a memory card problem or a camera problem? I don't know.

Poor focus I am using the Nikon d80 with a Sigma 24-70 mm lens. I am not satisfied with the crispness of the photos.
