Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

LOOKING FOR A NEW DIGITAL CAMERA, WHICH ONE IS GOOD?


Answers :

That depends on what features you consider important. How much does size and weight matter? Do you value ease of use over ease of learning? Do you want the versatility of interchangeable lenses or the convenience of having everything in a single package? Only YOU can answer these and other questions. That's why there are so many different digital cameras out there. The camera I use daily may not meet your needs at all, yet it's the best camera for MY needs.
You'll find many buyers' guides at the magazine rack of a good bookstore. You'll also find online reviews at places like here. Just remember that the best camera for you is the one that best meets your needs, not that of any reviewer.

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

My Olympus SP-560UZ USED TO take good pics, and when I look at older pics taken on the rear LCD screen, THEY look fine. However, when I look at real time images on LCD screen and/or take new pics, everything appears "smeared". When I look at new photos taken on LCD screen, or even transferred to computer, it's even WORSE...just one blurry mass of swirling colours. The camera hadn't been used in a month, and just sat in a closet for that time, so WHAT could have happened to it?

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!

All of a sudden our nikon coolpix P2 digital camera is stating lens error when we turn it on. the opening/closing mechanism will work and open but then after the photo lens thing comes out, it looks around and goes back inside the camera. I've tried to dust it a little with a soft brush, and jiggle it some but to no avail. I'm afraid repairing it will cost more than a new one. This one is 4 years old. Help!

My doughters seemed to drop the camera onto a grass field, while the camera was opened, now the camera cannot be closed properly nor opened. I took out a small straw of grass from the lense, but something seems to be stuck there. Is it worth taking it to a pro for fixing, or just look for a new camera, since this one was good but a bit out of date.?????

We have a Fuji S5000 digital camera we really like. However, lately it takes shots that are more like artwork with colors running down the page. I looked it up and it appears to be the image sensor.
