Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

This is a mind bender, While doing a shoot using monolights connected to a Nikon D1x I encountered exposure problems. After the lights were metered for the best exposure, I started shooting. The first ten or so shots were fine, and all of a sudden the next ten shots looked like they were 8 stops over, and then it went to looking ok. The first thing I did was switch monolights thinking there was a problem with the flash, this did not resolve the issue. Next I switched camera bodies, still the int

I have had this problem before in the past. In my case, it was the lens. The aperture was sticking open intermittently. It would show the correct fstop on the camera display but it was actually stuck wide open within the lens. Check your lens out or test this with a different lens and I think that will take care of your problem.

Sometimes after I have been using the camera (Sony alpha 100) to take a few shots, turned it off to save battery drain and when it is switched on again it sets the focus and beeps as part of the start routine without my touching the release button. It will not refocus when I touch the release and if I shoot an exposure it will then refocus without my intervention. I have tried to identify the combination of circumstances that lead up to this but can only say that it never occurs on the first s

Sloooooowww speed I LOVED my 20D the first two years I had it. Then last spring it started slowing down - I was no longer able to fire off shots like before in multi-shot mode. Then one day it wouldn't stop clicking off shots. I turned it off, took the battery out and let it sit for a bit. Then it stopped working altogether and I got an error 99. It went into the shop and Ritz Camera said they fixed it - but they didn't. It worked one hour and did the same thing. I loaded a firmware update on it

"overexposure" The problem arose after I visited a botanical garden and went from cold outside weather to high temperature and humidity conditions. The next day I found that the image through the viewfinder and lens appeared vastly overexposed, nearly all white. If I focused on an object, the exposure would return to normal, but the picture taken was shot through all over with fine white lines, making it indecipherable. The exposure through the lens and viewfinder has now returned to normal, but
