Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have Windows XP - does Canon SD850IS 8 MP w/4X Optical work on my computer - I read in some of the specs that it only worked on Windows VISTA. If that is correct, which ELPH do you suggest I get for XP? I have a NIKON D50 SLR now but looking for one to carry in my purse every day - I'm always finding photo opportunities. Thanks - Nell

Nikon D50, digital SLR, I was using my camera at a wedding and the flash just stopped working. The camera thinks the flash is going off - it pops up and takes them quickly but no light goes off.... do these cameras have traditional 'bulbs' could it be as simple as the bulb has blown and it needs a new one? or am i looking at something bigger than that? I am normally an old school film camera person - i dont know much about this at all... thanks kathleen

Before Christmas, I was in the EasyShare program, looking for a particular picture. I hit one (or 2) keys by mistake--Either/or shift key on right side, the Control key,the one that looks like a window and also one that looks like a printed page. The Easy Share program disappeared so fast, I hardly so it go. Since that time, I have been unable to open it--usually, when you want to remove something, it will ask "are you sure you want to whatever" This did not happen. I finally remember

Taking pics I just got a Nikon D40 camera and I can't seem to figure out how to view on the screen what I'm looking at when I'm trying to take a picture. I can view them in play mode after the fact, but isn't there a way to see on the screen instead of having to look through the little window to see what I'm shooting? Thanks in advance for any help!!!

I mounted my camera on a tripod, selected a shallow depth of field, and shot each object. I found that at close range, my camera focused fine. The farther away the object, the more the camera focused behind the object. I returned the camera to Nikon for repair under warrantee. They made some adjustments. The focus has definitely improved, but I don't think it is qu
