Hi all, I wonder if you can supply some advice regarding a Sigma17-35mm lens I purchased earlier in the year. Basically if I use the automatic or 'P' setting on my Canon EOS 30D camera the image is over exposed by 1 to 2 stops. If I use the same functions with my Canon 18 -55 kit lens the exposure is correct so I would presume the camera is not causing the problem. The only way I can get a correct exposure with the Sigma lens is to compensate manually for each shot. Please note the exposure p

Try your EOS in AV (aprature value) mode. You should be able to adjust your aperature value in 1/3 or 1/2 steps dependind how you have your Custom Functions set in your camera's menu. Possibly the lens you purchased is for an EOS 35mm. If you use a 3 ... Sigma Digital Cameras

Canon EOS Rebel XT with EFS 18-55mm lens. Trouble-free for two years. During a weekend of lots of use, suddenly the camera would not autofocus. Switching to manual focus, the camera worked. Then it started working okay in autofocus. Later that day quit altogether. (Would not release shutter even in manual mode.) Removed the lens and cleaned the contacts on both lens and camera, started working okay but only temporary. Went through several cycles of this over the weekend, so I'm not sure

I just bought a Vivitar Vivicam T027 camera. It says to use a SD card. I tried that - does not fit. I tried the SDHC card - does not fit. Please help me by telling me what kind of card this camera does take. The 800 number given in the manual is useless - 45 minutes and then it disconnected without me talking to anyone. I'm at a loss and I have also given this camera to a friend as a gift so I'm embarrassed because I can't get mine to work or hers. Thanks for helping me.

Are you sure you are not placing the card in up side down? SD cards definitely fit on this one, just make sure the slot is empty when you pushing it in.\015\012\015\012don't force it, if it feels like your forcing it, its upside down.\015\012 ... Vivitar ViviCam 3915 Digital Camera

I was given an old sony fd200 digital camera (that takes the old floppy discs!) to use momentarily until I get a new camera - BUT it doesn't have a manual. I used it years ago but its been awhile. There are just a couple basic questions still - #1 The photo size is set for around 1250 and I think I need it smaller to put photos onto ebay - so how do I go in and change the photo size to smaller? #2 I feel stupid but how do I turn off the flash when I want to?

Overexposure problem I am using a Canon Rebel and have it set for RAW, 100ISO, and am deliberately Underexposing by 1 stop, but I am still getting Overexposed images.

I am new to digtal and may be overlooking something obvious - can anyone help point out my or the camera's error?

Your camera must have an exposure metter in the viewfinder that you can see or? (an arrow moving from -2 to +2 may be or somenthing like that) How do meassure the light? Matrix, center, spot?

I own Canon S3 IS digital PowerShot camera. I have taken many pictures, but wanted to make some adjustments to some of the manual settings, as I am getting more comfortable with the camera, and would like to try pictures without using the AUTO mode.

I didn't get a manual with this Canon PS S200 camera from eBay, but had used my sister's S200 camera, etc., and was familiar with this model. I had installed the software (Canon Zoombrowser) that came with her camera onto my computer, and all worked the way I expected with her camera and my computer. So I expected the same action with this auction model. I ordered and printed out an online manual for my "new" S200, and then took pix. I am having no luck transferring the pix from the camera t

Hi i just bought a canon eos rebel from someone online and it has a 28-80 lens. I try to use it and i noticed the focus is very loose, is that normal? I dont know alot about cameras but i have used manual cameras before and i have never used one with such a loose focus. And also would i lose slight focus if its like that when i go and take a picture?

Your camera is primarily an autofocus model: manual focussing is very much a secondary feature and is always very free moving. If it were any other way then it would cause the AF motor to work much harder and dramatically shorten the battery life. ... Canon EOS Rebel 2000 with 28-80 lens 35mm Film Camera

I have a Canon HF M30 we bought in Dec 2010 and my husband attempted to plug in the cable into the USB port of the camera and discovered it would not 'connect' to the computer. In other words it wasn't recognizing it (we've used it many times before w/no issue) so he unplugged from camera and looked inside USB port on Camera and there was a plastic piece that was broken and just hanging in there. We sent to Canon since it was still under 1 yr warranty and they want to charge us $282 to repair it

I recently purchased this Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS/1000 from Best Buy and happily used it for about 6 weeks, when suddenly the AF button won't work, and when I try to use manual (since I was very accomplished with 33 mm cameras at one time) I can barely get a decent focus -- it's an almost impossible task. What happened? This camera has not been dropped or misued in any way, and I fear there is no future in taking it back to Best Buy with their rigid return policy of 14 days and no longer. HEL
