Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

My Nikon D80 seems to not be letting in enough light, its struggling to do any exposures in a fairly well lit room, that are above 5th sec and regularly defaulting to 1600 ISO when in auto! I'm fairly well experienced and have checked all the obvious things like ISO etc. When you look through the viewfinder, it seems to be darker - any advice much appreciated.

Answers :

Try to adjust the settings from your camera like the mode of flash that could interfer the picture.

Hello there, i have a tm700 from panasonic and it seems like the camcorder has some focus or depth of field issues, it always been working good until last week when i turned it on everything is out of focus, i tried geting focus back with auto focusand tried it with focus ring but it just seems impossible. only things that are focus are the things about an inch from the lense and i can get it focused if i zoom in a little... its odd because nothing really hapenned to the camera that could have

Inside the lens assembly, the focusing ring is controlled by electromagnets with feedback from the microprocessor and CCD sensor. Many things can effect the focusing circuit, but the most likely things would be any dirt, dust, or lint obstructing t ... Digital Cameras

Digital camera hi i just got a digital camera at first i had problems because the pictures were grainy but i seem to have fixed this with changing the iso to 100 but now the pics seem to b blurry it kind of looks out of focus, if i take a still moving object outside it is better but still a little bit blurred although not much, but inside it is worse and if i try taking a pic of my kids well there is no chance it goes far too blurry because they wont stand still enough, also the flash seems to a

Blurry LCD Well, I have recently got a SD400 camera from dell.com. The first thing I noticed was the inaccurate LCD. The picture in the LCD seemed blurry(bad resolutoin, weird coloring) and inaccurate. But, after actually taking the pictures, the picture seemed perfect. (In the review mode and the display right after you take a picture.) Is this a problem? This is my first digital camera, thus I had no previous experience with camera LCD. Or is this normal, without flash, everything is suppose

I have what seems like a very easy thing to fix, but the estimate I got for fixing it seems much too high ($175). I dropped my Konica Minolta Dimage Z3 camera a while ago and now the battery lid won't stay closed. I need a replacement for that and the camera will be as good as new. Any suggestions?

I have a Nikon D300. I can't seem to figure out what's wrong, I assume it's a setting issue. In low light situations even with the flash I can't seem to stop action or even properly light things. I have had any kind of issue like this on a camera before. In situations where I should be able to handhold I am using a monopod. I know there is enough light to not have to handhold, I mean I am using the flash. Frankly even with available light this should not be an issue.

I have a Minolta Maxxum 5D which I really like. I take a lot of pictures outside with my job. I have a telephoto lens and a regular lense as well. I switch lenses a good bit depending on the shot. Everything was working well until I now get a message that reads "no lens attached" when there is a lense on the camera. The weird thing is that I only get this message on my regular lense and my telephoto lens works fine. I even carried my camera by a local Minolta/Konic dealer and they were baff

My Pentax K100D has suddenly stopped working. It hasn?t been bumped or dropped or anything. A few days ago I was still taking pictures, and then a day or two later when I tried it, it wouldn?t work. When you press the shutter release button, nothing happens. No autofocus, no picture is taken, nothing. The only thing is that you hear a fairly rapid clicking sound, perhaps like a gear wheel turning or something. I tried various settings, new batteries, a different lens, autofocus, manual focus, ev
