Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Where do I buy one. - Digital Cameras



Answers :

I you want to buy a cheap camera your local supermarket may have one in the electrical or batteries section and even the most basic model, or one combined with a mobile phone, might be enough for your purposes.

If you want to take special family pictures or print your pictures you may want to look on dedicated websites, camera forums and online camera review and comparison sites like www.dpreview.com for help with choosing something more suitable.

Once you decide on a particular model, Amazon offers competitive prices and often delivery is 'free'. You might also prefer to buy from Amazon itself, which has a fine reputation for after sales\015\012 service.

In UK the address is www.amazon.co.uk and then search for 'digital camera' in the section 'electronics & photo'. Popular brands include Panasonic Canon and Samsung and Casio.

I have had two digital cameras (the first an Ixus - the present a Powershot). After a couple of years the Ixus wore out batteries in 5 minutes - and buying new ones did not help. Now the same thing is happenng to my Powershot - which uses ordinary AA-batteries. Both cameras still take very good pictures - but a retailer told me that this is what happens to digital cameras after a while. Do i really have to by a new one every 3.rd year - or have anyone any suggestions?


Rechargeable batteries lose performance when they get older. A three year lifespan is not unusual. Note that your camera does not use "normal" AA batteries. It should be using rechargeable NiMH or disposable lithium AA's only, although alkaline (e.g. ... Canon Digital Cameras

Camera dropped My son accidently dropped my C743 digital camera. It must have hit on the right side top corner because now the screen is all white with a black triangle outline through the top right side through the middle of the screen. The camera still takes good pict., but you cant see what you took, and what is the use of having a digital camera then? My question is: can the screen be fixed, or will it be cheaper to buy a new one? Thanks!

Moire patterns A few months ago I decided to 'wet my toe' with digital photography and I bought very cheap Mustek GSmart Mini 2 digicam. As you might expect with a $60 camera the image quality is a bit limited due to the fixed focus lens, low resolution (1.3MP) and poor low light performance. Anyway, now that I can see the advantages of digital photography I'm planning on buying a decent camera e.g. Canon S230 to overcome the problems of the Mustek. One problem that the mustek has


The moire pattern is most likely due to poor lens resolution and a resolution that conflicts with the close pattern of the house design. By lowering the resolution. you are making the receptors "bigger" so they dont pick up the smallest details. if ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-H1 Digital Camera

I recently purchased this Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS/1000 from Best Buy and happily used it for about 6 weeks, when suddenly the AF button won't work, and when I try to use manual (since I was very accomplished with 33 mm cameras at one time) I can barely get a decent focus -- it's an almost impossible task. What happened? This camera has not been dropped or misued in any way, and I fear there is no future in taking it back to Best Buy with their rigid return policy of 14 days and no longer. HEL


Does the lens have an aperture ring? Is it set to "A" when you try to autofocus? Have you removed the lens and put it back on? Is it on correctly? Even though Best Buy won't help, if necessary, the camera is still under warranty from Canon. ... Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS / 1000D IS Digital Camera

I dropped my Canon Powershot SD750 digital camera and the extended lens was stuck open. I had no other options so I opened the camera up to fix it. I corrected it, but after I put the camera back together it takes poor pics. In normal light conditions it over exposes and pic looks really bright and also has many lines going through the picture? I love the camera and don't want to buy another one. I tried a different memory card and reset function under the menu.
