Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have a Canon Rebel XT. I want to do tabletop photography so I brought a cord to hook the camera up to the TV but it will only see the pictures that I have already taken. I want to be able to see what I am shooting before I take the picture. Is there some way that I can do that.


Answers :

No. The DSLR cameras don't have that capability. They act like film cameras and the sensor is only exposed when the shutter is tripped.

Bought a 3.5 macro lens.the focus ring does not work manually.This is the second such lens I have gotten(sent the first one back because of same problem).This is not corect is it?It works fine on auto focus however I should be able to focus it by hand if I want shoot different distances correct? By the way the camera is an Evolt 500


Short answer Yes!.. I am wondering if by chance you have the lens switch set to AF rather than M. It would be almot unheard of to not have manual focus, also to have 2 lenses with the same problem. No insult intended, but it sounds more like yo ... Olympus Digital Cameras

I have recently been on vacation. I checked photos on the LCD screen after a days shooting. All was well. I have now downloaded the pictures to my computer. Photos from the first several days are missing and perhaps others too, scattered through the remaining days. When I try to review the pictures again on the LCD screen I can see the pictures I was able to download but also many blank screens with "incompatible JPEG".

Accidentally I dropped my Sony DSC S500 camera. Now the shutter is jammed. When i switch on, the lens ejects out and stops half way.

I want to replace the memory chip in my Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS camera with a larger one but leave the photos taken on the original memory card on the camera. I used my computer to first read the photos off the original chip, then to write them back to the larger chip. When I put the larger chip in the camera, it shows no images. When I read the chip with a card reader, I do see the images. I want to be able to see those images on the camera (so I can use it as a viewer to share my photos

Hi i am using a Nikon N75 to take pictures for my photo class, and the instructor wants us to take low light indoor phtotos at a shutter speed of 1/30 at f2.2. However, when i go to set these settings in manual mode the camera will not let me set my aperture to 2.2 it usually stops at 4 and there is no way i can make it 2.2. i didn't know if there is a limitation on the camera but it seems like i should be able to select what i want.


It's probably a limitation of your lens. You didn't say what lens you're using, but one of the common kit lenses sold with the N75 only goes to f/3.3 at best. If you had a lens that opens up more, the camera will let you use it.The differ ... Nikon Digital Cameras

Color Saturation I just upgraded to the Digital Rebel XT, and I noticed that my images (i usually shoot at ISO 100 w/a polarizer) are a little bland in the color saturation department. I have the camera set to Adobe RGB and am using photoshop to process the images (I usually shoot the high-quality JPGs), but I'm frustrated that the only way to get the color to match what I'm truly seeing in front of me is to pump up the saturation levels in Photoshop. I'd like the camera to capture that in the f

Taking pics I just got a Nikon D40 camera and I can't seem to figure out how to view on the screen what I'm looking at when I'm trying to take a picture. I can view them in play mode after the fact, but isn't there a way to see on the screen instead of having to look through the little window to see what I'm shooting? Thanks in advance for any help!!!
