Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Can't find my manual. How do I take a picture of myself? How do I delay the shutter in order to run around and be in the picture?

Answers :

Hey drathy,
\015\012 Without knowing what camera you are using I can't give you specific directions, but what you are looking for is the self-timer function. You can usually change how long the self-timer delays the shutter for in you menu. What you do is set the self-timer and press the shutter button, and then you run around to get into the image. I hope this helps!

PICTURE TAKING Wonder if anyone can help me? Whenever I try to take a picture on my C-350 Zoom there is a long delay, of about 3 seconds, between me pressing the button and the flash operating to take the picture. This means I can never take any action shots and am even struggling to take family snapshots. I've checked this against other cameras and they only seem to take 1 to 1.5 seconds. I've looked through the operating manual and can't seem to find any solution. Any help would be greatly

There is a 20 second delay when I take pictures. Must have hit a button but can't find it in the manual. How do I fix it to take pictures immediately?

Couple of things to try - put it on full auto (green square on the dial) first. If it is still taking 20 seconds then there is something wrong unless you have set the self timer - is the camera beeping before it takes the shot? If this is the case, ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

When I turn my camera on I only see a dark blue and black image with white lines running through it--could I have damaged something or have I messed up my settings? I can look at previous pictures taken, they look fine, I just can't figure out why I can't see anything through the view finder or LCD monitor in order to take new pics. i have been reading through the manual, tried new batteries (regular AA)--any suggestions?

My pictures have a yellow cast to them and they are not very sharp. When I take pictures outside, my photos are invariably washed out. I find myself manually adjusting light balance before I print (either darkening if I take picture outside or lightening if I take the picture inside). I almost always use Auto mode. I have found nothing that corrects the nasty yellow cast.

Have you changed the white balance setting? ... Digital Cameras

My nikon coolpix 800 isn't taking pictures. It takes them but... the shutter won't open. so i have a full 128mb cf card that is full of nothing but pictures of the back of the shutter.... i've read the manual ten times and i have not found an answer to my issue. can you explain what is going on, and if its possible to fix easily... and inexpensively.

I doubt there is an easy fix or a cheap one, the mechanism that opens the shutter may have broken or come loose, the only thing i can think of would be to shake it a little to see if things click into place. ... Nikon Coolpix 800 Digital Camera

I bought this camera but don't know how to operate it. No clear instructions with it. Where can I find a manual? It has a memory card that inserts into the bottom of it. I turn the power on and take the picture but how do I save the picture. I am confused also because on what few instructions I have says it does not come with a memory card, so what kind of card did I insert into it? I also don't know how to save the pictures when I take a picture I can see it on the monitor but a pop up says

I was taking pictures into bright sunlight switching between manual and automatic settings, and manual and automatic focus. First, the picutre would take, but the shutter would not open (viewfinder would remain closed) switching from manual to automatic focus fixed this issue. However now it seems that the aperture is stuck, and not enough light gets through to the viewfinder. How can I fix this?

Continuous shooting I'm new to this so bare with me. I just got my Nikon D60 and I want to shoot pictures in continuous mode. I set it on manual, go into the menu and change it to continuous. I rotate the dial so it changes the shutter speed but when I take pictures it's just a black screen. As a matter of fact any time I try to take a picture in M it's just black. I'm hoping that there is just a setting I need to change and there's not something wrong with my camera. Thanks.

Hey man. Im not sure how new you are but basically i think your problem is you need to decrease the shutter speed to around 1/200-1/250 of a second and increase the apeture to around f10/12 and see if that works. If your operating at a high shutter s ... Nikon D60 Digital Camera with 18-55mm lens
