Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have vivitar 5024 camera. i have a 4gb chip in it, i have only taken about 50 pic. and the camera says the chip has no more pictures to be taken on chip

Answers :

Try taking photos on a lower resolution. They use much less space on your memory card. But only 50 on 4gb means something is wrong.
\015\012Check to see everything on the card is actually a picture and not a video. Taking videos can chew up amazing amounts of space, after all a video is a huge string of photos strung together. I hate to think it but some time ago a conamn was selling doctored memory cards which read 4gb on your camera but actually held only 2 gb. I would've thought these could have been long gone but if you purchesed it used it could well be one of those. Although I'd still expect more than 50 shots.
\015\012Maybe your card requirers a format. If your camera has a formatting capability try it out, just make sure you do it with a known good set of fully charged batteries. If they die halfway through a format it can wreck your card.
\015\012Your camera should certainly allow more pictures to be taken on a 4gb card. Buy check the above and maybe borrow a card from a friend to try out or even a another card. A spare sure comes in handy and with today's prices they're as cheap as chips.
