Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I can't find object in dark. Though the camera should identify (may be red ray focus) the object to take snap. In manually I set up all the possible way but in vain. Could you pls. give me a set up solution as I can overcome the trouble?



Answers :

Yes, the camera does attempt to illuminate the area to allow autofocus, but the darker it is, the harder it is for autofocus to work. This is a problem even with high-end SLRs.\015\012
\015\012Usually the center focus point is the strongest and focusing works best when there is a strong vertical line.

\015\012There isn't a complete solution, but you there are a couple of work-arounds\015\012 If you have a camera with manual focus, then use manual focus\015\012 Point the center focus point on an edge, depress the shutter button 1/2 way to focus, then re-frame the picture. \015\012

I purchased this camera yesterday. I tried to download pictures and got all the ARC products download which I really do not want and then could not find the way to just download the photos onto my PC. We did have the camera set to the USB setting on the camera. Does this not have a simple way to just download the pictures? I have had KoDak easyshare cameras and a Canon and never had this problem before.

I would like to set up 3 webcams at my cottage (very close to city) because of thefts. My ideal objective would be for my family or me to be able to view pictures from any of our various home, office and school computers online in near real time. My question - is it possible for the cams to feed through a wireless router and modem directly on to the net without an intervening computer? We have lots of electricity and a permanent cable/internet connection. I can use my computer for set-up but am

I purchased a Sanyo 12.1 mp camera with 3x optical zoom less than a month ago and for some reason it will not focus on anything. The screen shows everything as a big blur. I have checked the lense to see if there was a possible smudge on it but there isnt and none of the camera settings have been changed. It is also making sounds like it is trying to focus but cannot. Is there any way to possibly fix this?

CCD Problem My HP Photosmart 945 camera's CCD broke down, and I'm told that there's no way to repair it, because HP does not sell the part. What could I do?. Is it possible to install another make's CCD or any solution that might help. Please, do not refer me to HP customer support service, because it sucks! They only offer a "refurbished camera" and only God knows what that could be!. Thanks in advance. P.S.: I know the camera is old (even though to me three years is not that much), but it work

I have a Samsung SL202 which I purchased because it was pretty much auto setting if I wanted. I liked the dial on the back to tell me what I was shooting. I'm not camera techie. I have been trying to get clear pictures of items to list on ebay. I have had a trombone and a suit jacket. I have tried most settings, different places in the house for light, etc., but they are never clear, the colors are not right, and the picture is too bright making the object look faded. I have then spent way too m

Video sound On my Olympus sp-55ouz ~ i haven't ever found a way to get sound on videos. I read the following suggestion on your website, {{Move the Dial To Video, then after you move the Dial to Video, set the [(Audio Symbol)](movie), turn it to ON. And you are all set! }} but it doesn't make sense to me.. I can turn the dial on top to video, but to WHAT "Audio Symbol/movie " is the poster referring? If you could explain this a little more clearly, I would be most appreciative! Thanks. Suzy

I am a freelance writer. I have a Canon PowerShot A1000IS that I use to take photos to go along with articles I write for the local paper. Recently almost all the pictures I take are blurry on the top 1/3 of the photo. It hasn't always been this way and it doesn't happen all the time so it makes me think that possibly I have somehow gotten some of the settings off. The bottom 1/3 is sometimes a little blurry too but not as much as the top. Can anyone tell me what would cause this and what I can

Shutter speed Hi all, I just recently bought the s400, and I love the camera, though I will admit I was disappointed that I couldn't control the shutter speed. I am confused though, becuase looking at reviews and pictures taken by the s400 the author said what the shutter speed was - how could they possibly know that? Is there a way to tell what your shutter speed is? I can't figure it out .. It is said that shutter is best at 1/125 for motion pictures - so how will I know if thats what my sh

Flash problem So, I set the camera to 'Flash On'. I take a picture and the flash goes off for about a quick second. I look at the picture and it's nothing but a black background, sometimes white where I can only slightly see the object I took the picture of. What's wrong with my camera? This only happens sometimes, by the way. Sometimes I take a picture and everything's normal.

Good Morning I went hiking in broad daylight this past weekend and the autofocus would not work. I have a Canon 40D with a TAmron 18-270. I used av, tv, p, m and auto and I could not autofocus the camera. All I could do is to switch to manual focus to get it to work. When the lens was set to AF all you could is hear is it racking back and forth tying to focus. VERY FRUSTRATING.. Any ideas of what it may be or a setting I might have set accidentally. Any help is appreciated. Bob

W1 metering I am fairly new to this camera and I was wondering which settings most of you use. The multipoint AF or the Center AF for focus ? The multi-pattern metering or the spot metering ? Most common ISO rating ? The image size 5M or 3.2M ? Also I found that you can't have the camera set one way for the M mode and another way for the P mode. Sorryto ask so much. Richard
