Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Panasonic DMC TZ2. I have the 1 GB SD card that came with the camera. I know I'm supposed to get 500 shots, but I only get 21. How can I solve this?

Answers :

Download the pics and look at the average fiile size used. To see file size, in folder where pic where downloaded, left click in blank area and select VIEW then DETAILS. If the average file sizes is 3Meg, then you got all the card will hold.
\015\012If average file sizes is 1.5Meg or less, then you are missing memory space. Some cheap off-brand cards will false label and report a capacity larger than thery really are. FORMAT the card in the camera and try it again.
\015\012There is an SD card tester Utility for free at: http://tinyurl.com/68u866 . It will test the speed and capacity of an SD or SDHC card in a card reader. This is a popular program on the net and perfectly safe to download. It does not install on your computer, but just runs till the test is completed. You get a report of the findings. There is a ReadMe file included for instructions, but would recommend to your more techie friend if your not.
\015\012If your card is a name brand, San Disk, Kingston, Panasonic, etc., then it is very unlikely it is a fraud.

I just lpurchased a Canon 5D MarkII. Originally the LSD showed single photos when I reviewed past shots. Then it changed to showing four shots and now it changed to nine shots. The instruction manual on this doesn't get me back showing single shots. That manual is worthless in its explanation. How do I solve this problem? For future reference do you have a phone number I can call to get help when I need it? If you charge for calls so be it. I just need to get familiar with this

I'm trying to shoot HDR photos using my XSi/450D. From the menu two I've set the AEB EV step range as 0, -2 and 2. From here, though, I don't know what to do. If I go directly from the menu to shooting, I don't get any automatic shots, but rather single, individual shots based on the current exposure settings. Help. I've scanned my 45D manual, DVD tutorial, etc. and cannot find my missing step to create a series of AEB shots. Many Thanks, Robert

My Kodak Easyshare V1233 comes on stating "Interna; Memory Filled" I went in and cleaned it. But it seems like I only get 5 pictures that I can take after that. I take the five (the number in the corner states 5 as it goes down to 0 as I take the five shots???? Then I get the Internal Memory Filled message again??? What is going on??? Please help, Pattie

The V1233 has 32MB of internal memory. At 12MP, each image file is probably about 5 or 6MB in size. 32MB of memory will only hold 5 6MB files.\012\012\012To take more pictures, insert a memory card into the card slot. ... Kodak EasyShare V1233 Digital Camera

I have a new Fuji finepix S2700 HD. Before having a memory card, I shot 4 pics using up internal memory. The screen said get a new card. I did, expecting the problem to be instantly solved.

Depending on how far away you are from the action, the flash is most probably not strong enough to be effective...in fact, it's probably making your camera underexpose every shot. Turn off the flash and turn up the ISO to 400 or even 800. ... Digital Cameras

I have a Canon EOS 50D Digital Camera and use 3 different Canon Lenses. I am getting "Error 30". I have taken the internal battery out and re-installed the firmware. At times I can shoot quite a number of shots before getting the error. But, once I start getting the error, it comes about every 4 or 5 shots. I believe this is very similar to the "Error 99" in the Canon 30D, which I also have. The 30D has been sent to Canon for repair and worked for a while and now it gets the Error 99 every coupl

Frequently we're getting out-of-focus shots with our 710. It is not clear what setting is producing this. Most of our shots are taken in "reduce blur' mode. We can't figure out why we'll get about 35% of our shots out-of-focus. Are we messing-up the setting somehow?

You're supposed to press the shutter button half-way and allow the camera to lock in the focus (it will beep) before pressing the rest of the way. Do you do that? ... Olympus Stylus 710 Digital Camera

Battery drainage I have had my olympus sp-550 uz for approx 18 months, and was getting around 175 shots even when using zoom a lot.

I have been using the same make and type of batteries since I bought the camera.

Even with fresh batteries installed, I only get a few shots before the "battery empty" icon appears. Then, if I remove and then re-insert the same batteries, the initial result is a green battery icon which may only give me one shot before the "battery empty" icon appears again. If I use only the viewfinder, I may get a couple more shots. It looks like an electrical problem but what should I do?
