Hello. I bought my Powershot SX1 IS in April 2010, and have never felt I could get good photos with it. The 'noise' seems bad, when I playback and zoom in just one notch, definately worse, the more I zoom. The color is often poor, and the focus on close-ups is not sharp. Would you say this is the best this camera can do, or would you say there is something wrong with this particular one. (I always have it set at highest resolution , often 100 ISO, try the set of three exposures to get diffe

Hi! I have a problem with my samsung digimax s500. My camera makes worse photos in the MANUAL Mode. They are all dark. It seems that the Exposure compensation is set at -2. The camera shows me that when i press the Shutter button lightly. But i can not reset this in the MANUAL Mode. Wich means that i get only a normal bright photo when my exposure time is set at 8 seconds. Please help me! sincerly Georg Heidfogel

Over exposure The exposure settings on the camera have suddenly become fixed - I can't change them either through fixing shutter speed, OEV, or any other settings. Even tried a factory reset by selecting 'initialize' from the menu, but the problem persists. High or low exposure settings are visible on the viewfinder (i.e. changing the settings shows the picture getting darker or lighter on the screen), but once the picture is shot, it's fixed at an overexposed state.

I have been having problems getting sharp pictures. Especially indoors. I have the cool pix 6000 and reset all my settings to the factory settings. My pictures indoors seem almost "filtered"...not sharp at all. I took some pics outside and they are great. Shouldn't the auto setting adjust to take great pics inside and out?? Any help would be appreciated.
Try turning ON the "Anti Shake AE", also, try using "fill-in" flash mode. ... Nikon COOLPIX P6000 Digital Camera
My Pentax OptioW90 stopped reacting to the operating button (ie focus and exposure) so would not shoot. I could change all the options including going back to factory settings which I did a couple of times Next day it had the same problem as other people of taking a couple of flash photos on start up then freezing with no response for any options. So now it is as good as dead. Used for 6 months with lovely photos and no known water leakage

I own an E500 finepix and I am shortly to go on holiday where I will be taking a lot of snaps, so I would like you to tell me which setting would be best for the ,most general snaps irrespective of the size of my sd card.I have 64mb and a 1gb cards to use. I am aware of the fact that I have a manual , but I cannot seem to get the max '(photos) out of my cards , could you please help, because where I am going to take the photos is a once only place .

If I understand you correctly, you want to get the most pics on a card possible. You can do that by going into the menu and choosing the lowest quality setting and lowest number of pixels. The problem is, if you later decide to print the pics or if y ... Fuji FinePix E500 Digital Camera
I have a new (3 weeks) D700 and while taking photos yesterday with camera and a 16-35mm lens, the exposure meter went ape. Pictures taken ok but ERR started to flash where shutter speed reading should be displayed in viewfinder. Tried everything, including resetting to factory settings, detaching and reattaching lens, checking switches, and then went home in despair. At home I switched to a 50mm lens and the problem disappeared. I put the 16-35mm lens back and problem seemed to have disappeared.

I am having problems with the flash working on my camera. It does not seem to matter if it is in automatic or manual modes. When I take a picture in either mode, when a flash is needed, the flash icon just blinks on the display. The camera will not take any photo when this is happening. The only way I can get my camera to take a photo is manually set the flash to off. Why is this happening?
Please reset camera through Reset option in Menu. This will set camera on default settings and any glitch in settings will be removed.Thanks. ... Canon PowerShot SD870 IS Digital Camera
Resolution Problem I just purchased a 14n and perhaps I'm doing something wrong but I set the resolution to 13.5mb and my files are coming up 6mb or even less. Also the color and sharpness seem to be off. I have been using a Fuji S1 with great results but wanted to move up to the 14n for it's high resolution capabilties but I don't seem to be getting it. Any help would be most appreciated.
To get the full resolution the 14N offers, you have to shoot raw files. The camera will shoot raw at several resolutions, as well as J-Pegs, see your owner's manual. The 14N will not shoot in-camera to a tiff. Once you turn the raw file into a tiff u ... Kodak DCS 14n Digital Camera

I own a D90 and of late have had problem getting the shutter to actually fire and take a photo at times. It will work sometimes and not at others. I have tried changing the memory card - putting it on manual etc but still won't work. The battery is fully charged. It occasionally comes up with an r05 and r21 code in the R lower box and a flashing F at the top R when this seems to happen. I haven't played with the settings all that much - just since this has begun happening. Can you make any sugge
The r codes you mention are related to speeds of buffering information onto the memory card. A high ISO NR setting on the camera has a huge impact.... the cross over point is 800 ISO. If you have it on, and are on 800 or over, the remaining buffer ca ... Nikon Digital Cameras
I have a Canon 1000d and it appears to take great pictures when viewed on the lcd screen or computer but when I get photos developed they appear to be a bit dark. The pictures are taken in auto mode. I have read somewhere that the factory settings need adjusting and it needs to be sent back. It is no longer under warranty. Has anyone else had this problem?
Reset the menus to factory setting or default settings. You can also try this: remove the battery and let it sit for at least 24 hours. This should reset all setting to default.Also you can adjust the settings in the menus to darken the pictures slig ...

I have a Caonon 40D. I thought I was having a lens problem at first. However after using 2 other lenses I have found out it is my Camera. No matter how clear and crisp the image is in the view finder. After the photo is taken and loaded into PS4. The image is blurry and unsharp. I have reset all camera settings to factory with Canon. And I am still getting the same results. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.
It is probably due to dust on the sensor, or sensor alignment not properly done. In both cases you have to take the camera to a Canon dealer for servicing. ... Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera
Dear Sirs, my Sony DSC F828 would switch off partly through a photo shoot and then it is a problem to get it back on again. If I remove the battery it would come on for a few seconds or untill it has booted properly and then switch off again. The battery is fully charged when this happens so it don't seem to have anything to do with the battery being improperly charged. Could you please give an answer on this one!!!

Canon A560 camera problem - the images are overexposed. I checked the exposure setting, AWB, and all other settings and they are all normal. There is an exposure setting where I can set to + or - 2, but setting it to -2 does not help much. Outdoor photos are almost completely white. There is some detail in black objects. Indoor photos are overexposed. Flash pictures seem OK. The picture on the display is OK. I compared some macro photos taken a few weeks ago with macro photos now. The good photo

White out Every photo I take seems to white out, as if it is letting in to much light. But it is more than this, as it is possible to see white streaking on the image as well. I have also tried taking photos in various manual settings, resulting in the same problem. It seems to be a little better in doors. However when I use video mode the image is normal. This problem first occured on holiday in Singapore - when I took it into a shop out there they said it was probably the heat. But the problem

Photos unread I have an Olympus Stylus 720 SW with the same problem. When I upload photos, some are corrupted and are chopped with parts of the photo misplaced. It has nothing to do with computer as it does this on all computers. I'm not using a reader, but simply uploading VIA USB cable. Some photos are so corrupted, I cannot even get a partial view of the choppy remnant of the photo taken. Could this be a memory card problem or a camera problem? I don't know.
Use a card reader to download your pictures. It may solve the problem. After you do, format the card in the camera. Be sure you use a high quality card. ... Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS / 1000D IS Digital Camera
My Canon D50 is used only for astro imaging.The camera is not modified.My problem is when I shoot at ISO 3200 for faint galaxies,I get a huge amount of grainness..My friend has a Canon D40 and does not have this problem when shooting ISO 3200.The grainy background is so intense that it makes post processing of any quality impossible. Is there such a thing as a suggested setting for the Canon D50 that shows exactly what are the proper setting for the Canon D50 to get high quality images? I real

I think I'm going to explode if I hear one more "worn out battery" explanation for what seems to be a pretty common complaint. This is my 3rd camera...all ending up with the same problem. I've had the Canon Power Shot A570 for less than a year. Someone suggested changing the settings...but even with brand spanking new batteries, I can't even get it to last long enough to get into the settings. There is clearly a problem here that has NOTHING to do with the blasted batteries.
Sounds like you have a faulty board in the camera or it could be something as simple as a software upgrade, I know some of the Fuji Hine Pix had the same problem and it was the software. Take it back to the Canon. ... Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera
For no apparent reason, my GE A835 camera failed to upload photos. I tried everything I could think off to fix the problem but get stonewalled by windows vista telling me that this camera doesn't exist on my system.
