Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I had a camera, canon SD800, and it was stolen. I loved that camera. Which newer model is closest to that model. I am confused because there are so many models that are close, but I want the closest.


Answers :

You're right. There are a lot of models, and the numbers sometimes don't seem to follow a sequence. But for the SD800 IS, its successors appear to be the SD850 IS (came out in Spring '07), the SD870 IS (came out in Fall '07), and the SD890 IS (brand new now). The features are very similar, and the sensor has gone from 7MP (800) to 8MP (850 and 870) to 10MP (890).
\015\012My recommendation would be to try to find a new SD870 IS, or even an SD850 IS, because you should be able to get a good price on one.
The canon sd 870 is a terrific camera- you would pick up a wide angle lens -optical stabilizer face detection etc, 3" lcd-sell cameras for a living and this is a excellent soilid model!

I own Canon S3 IS digital PowerShot camera. I have taken many pictures, but wanted to make some adjustments to some of the manual settings, as I am getting more comfortable with the camera, and would like to try pictures without using the AUTO mode. I made some adjustments to the picture size (compresion) and pixels.I do not remember making any more changing, but I read the User Guide a lot, and learned where adjustments can be made in the maual mode. I decided to look at some of my latest pictu

FinePix 2300 I am wondering how good the Macro is on this model. My father-in-law received the 2300 for Fathers Day and he wants to be able to take close up photos of jewelry and rocks with good resolution. The jewelry is any where from Penny size to necklace size and the rocks range in size, but the small ones is what I am concerned about. Any suggestions what model might be better for this type of work if the 2300 will not work would be much appreciated.


I own a 2300. It is an excellent camera and has a very good macro. With a small lamp near the object it should really shine. ... Fuji FinePix 2300 Digital Camera

W1 Sharpening I am new to the Sony W1 and I have read somewhere that the camera should be set to the P mode and the sharpening to the ( - ) minus and it would yeild the best results. I am confused, why would you want the picture to be less sharp if your shooting nature for example. Wouldn't it be better to use the + setting?

I have a Kodak Easyshare model dx5430 digital camera (5mp). It has worked like a champ for years. Last night I was at an event when the image display went dark at picture 31. All preceding photos were able to be reviewed. The camera flash works fine. The camera displays all the other characteristics of a working unit. It turns on and off; the flash works, the menu is accessible - everything. It just doesn't register any photos. Even in close-up mode, there is nothing. It's as if the lens cap is

Instead of shutter priority "Tv" mode, try setting to program "P" mode instead. Also, turn off the flash, and set to macro if shooting close-in (press downward on the little flower icon on the back disk). If pictures come out blurry, try using a tr ... Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera

I've read the manual, but I'm still not sure what settings would be the best to photograph close-pictures of jewelry. I want the pictures as clear as possible. A lot of my pictures are fuzzy even when I select the stabilizer in mode 2.


You will probably need to use a tripod in close up mode. Especially if the light levels are low. Flash may help but often gives pictures with overbright parts and reflections. Cheap table tripods are easy to get hold of and if used with the self time ... Digital Cameras

PHOTOGRAPHING WATCHES Hello, I collect Swatch watches (approx 300 now) and want to set up an online catalog with 2 shots of each watch, one of the complete watch and a close up of the watch face detailing the artistic designs and colours. I only have basic photographic skills and knowledge and have borrowed my friend's Nikon Coolpix L100 and a mini tripod. It is an automatic camera so I don't have a lot of control, but it has a x15 zoom lens, a macro mode and image stabilisation to combat

Lumix tz3 Please turn camera off and then on again" as soon as camera is switched on. I Can view any menu, or read SD card, but cannot take any pictures. If I turn on in a picture taking mode it starts to focus and then the message appears, when I turn it off the lens does not close. If I turn on in playback mode, it works fine, if I turn it off from playback mode, then the lens closes. Basically, any picture taking mode triggers the error message. Solution?

Have the Nikon D90 camera and it does not allow me to take pictures when ever I want. It is in full auto mode and just does not want to take the picture even in bright day light. The F keeps on blinking in full auto mode and even if I switch to manual mode it does not allow me to change settings. It is very frustrating! what is wrong with this D90??


The blinking F-- means that the camera doesn't think a lens is attached. You can try removing the lens and re-attaching it. Or if you have another lens, try that. There are quite a few reports of this issue with the 18-135 kit lens. ... Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-200mm lens

Hi, I've a Panasonic LUMIX FZ38 (fw version 1.0).

And it's impossible to set the photo folder out of ''Read Only Mode''. Instead, if I put the same SDHC in a memory card reader, I can do everything I want. Do you think it's normal?


Yes, it's normal. You should never try to delete, format, transfer to camera, or anything else with the computer. It's always from camera to computer...never the other way around. And when you're finished downloading, always use the "safely remove ha ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5 Digital Camera
