Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?
How do i set flash for just one flash. it goes off many times for each shot even though "auto" is selected.
Depends on the camera. Most cameras set on auto that multi flash is only to make sure that the sensor inside is getting the right amount of light. What type of camera is it?

My Canon EOS Rebel XS digital camera has suddenly stopped taking pictures. It will not focus even though it is on the auto focus setting. The first set of numbers are flashing and there is a flashing dot behind the ISO 800. It was working fine when I used it one time and then the next time it wouldn't. I can view pictures, but cannot take them on any setting except A-DEP and it's not focused even then. Please Help!

I have a Canon Power Shot A720. Outdoor photos are beautiful. Indoor photos are always grainy/blurry...a lot of noise. I have tried the ISP feature but there are only two choices... 1. Auto or 2. High ISO Auto Either setting, the indoor photos are grainy. Further, there are times when my flash will not work. It won't work on Auto setting or when I try and "force flash" it. No flash and the photo will not allow a picture to even be taken. Any suggestions? Thanks

I have a cannon power shot A580, about one month old and it keeps asking for the date and time everytime i switch it on, even though i have replaced the date battery and the camera batteries, and set the date and time in the menu time and time again!!! HELP
If you've replaced the date battery, then the camera is defective. Being only a month old, first recommend seeing if your retailer will exchange it. If not, Canon will fix for free under warranty. Call 1-800-OK-CANON. ... Digital Cameras

I have a Canon 5D and a 430EX flash. When shooting pictures my flash will delay way to long before I can shoot another picture with flash. One picture is good and 3 are dark. My flash card is a CompactFlash 4GB Hi-speed 40 so I dont understand why it take so long for the flash to go off between shots. Giving an example of time, during a wedding the bride and grooms walks out "good shot" then the rest of the party with about 5 pews between them and I cannot get the whole wedding because the flash
The 430ex flash is E-TTL, that means it adapts is power to the scene. If you shoot a scene at 10 meters, the flash will choose to flash at the max power, and will take time to recharg. Try to get closer to your subject, and remember that the flash ca ... Canon EOS-5D Digital Camera

Make sure you have your flash & timing set where it is supposed to be, usually between 120 & 180. This is the shutter timing and flash duration. It is the syncronizing speed setting. If possible, turn off the automatic review, this slows ... Canon EOS-5D Digital Camera

I have a Nikon D90 with 18-105 mm lens. Lately, the onboard flash has not been firing even when I try to enforce it by having the flash popped up. It will only fire if I do one of the following: 1) unmount the lens from the camera body and then re-mount it back on, which the flash will fire maybe once or twice and that's it!, or 2) switch on a different lens which definitely works with the flash firing every single time. What needs to be done? I purchased this lens last December (2009). Is
Sounds like a dodgy electrical contact, possibly between the lens mount and the camera body. The lens ought to still be in warranty, but that would depend on what warranty the manufacturer or seller offer in your part of the world (in the UK, the sel ... Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-105mm lens

Hi I bought an Exilim EX-Z850 a couple of years and had been quite pleased with it even though I don't use it very much. I took it a few days ago and tried to use it, but it would not start. I charge both bayyeries (one original and one spare). The camera does not start. When I insert the battery, I can see a quick green flash by the eye viewing window for a fraction of a second. Please help. Many thanks. Ben W

AF problem Last week I took some pics that needed the flash turned off. I did that and took the pics with no problem. I turned the flash setting back to "auto" afterwards. (this may not be related to the current problem but does seem too much of a coincidence). Next time I went to use the camera, I got an AF(red dot) and a red hand on the screen. It would take one picture and then would be frozen (no zoom, no picture taking, but the screen would stay on). If I turn it back on I can then ta

I have a Cuddeback C-1000 trail camera. Mostly all the pics taken at night are black. About every 8-10 pics will take. The rest are black. Apparently the flash is not going off every time. Even in the black pics you can see a faint image. This camera has taken over 15,000 life time images. Cuddeback will want to upgrade my camera for a newer one. I do not want to do this as I have read the reviews of newer cameras and realize their first two models are the best. I think we have had this
No, it's not the sensor, it's the flash itself the one that is faulty: the components in the power source have aged and now it takes a lot longer to recharge. And the fact that you are trying to use it without waiting to be fully charged hasn't helpe ... Buck Cuddeback Expert Game Camera
My Canon EOS XTi keeps giving me an 05 error code which means that the pop up flash was impede . It does this every time even though I have made sure there is no obstruction at all. I tried gently to pop up the flash by hand but it won't budge and I am afraid to damage it by forcing it. Is there I lock on it somewhere that I don't know about? It says nothing at all about the issue in the operator's manual. Thanks, Bill
Dear Bill,the Pop up flash activates a switch which sends it message that it is up. Now there can be few things which are stopping it from doing that.1. Something has stuck, so small piece of anything,in the switch and not letting it oper ... Digital Cameras

Flash rebound I am new to digital cameras.

I am new to this but just back from holiday with mates all with different makes of cameras and not one had same problem. Any ideas. jack.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX5. Camera switches itself on even though it is switched off. Many occurrences of this. It has been examined and tested but nothing found wrong. Re-charged batteries run down quickly, even new ones. Comprehensive notes have been taken of the many events. In previous events, it switched itself on, then off again within seconds. This time it needed to be switched off by switching on then off switch.
