Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?
I recently bought a canon 450 and zoom lens,
i took it to my sons football match and tried to get some action shots but they just came out in a blur or out of focus,
so i set the camera to tv and 1/4000 and it came out all dark what can i do,
TV is a setting that controls the time. 1/4000 is a very high speed and the image will be dark. You could use 1/500 or 1/1000 as your speed. the slower speed gives more light for the exposure. When you go slower you may get some blur. Also make sure you do not shake the camera. A small shake is amplified with a zoom lens.

I recently bought a Canon powershot SX200is and I was using it to photograph my 4 year old grandson's birthday party, however a lot of the shots were blurred, these were mainly taken indoor, when I checked the camera settings I found the speed settings were ranging from 1/60sec to 1/6sec. I was shooting in P and AV, however I then switched back to automatic (auto) and took shots with the full range of options and still found some shots blurred, I think the problem is, the camera is trying to foc
I don't know your camera but on my fuji there is a setting that changes the "film speed". If it is set too low such as 100 or 200, it will make the exposure take too long causing blurry photos. The higher the number, the faster it is. Wor ... Canon Digital Cameras
What are the optimal settings for my digital camera? I have a brand new Canon PowerShot 12.1-Megapixel Digital ELPH camera, but I've been really disappointed in the quality of pictures it takes. For example, sometimes there are these smallish blurred white circles on the pictures. Can you recommend optimal settings that I should be using? I use my camera indoors and occasionally outdoors, so whatever settings best cover all different conditions would be ideal.
Small white circles usually means dust on the lens. Remove the dust with a blowerbrush - not a tissue.\012You are asking for a "1 size fits all" solution for your settings, and indoor and outdoor use really means different settings.   ... Canon PowerShot 12.1-Megapixel Digital ELPH Camera - Silver
Canon Sx120 IS camera will not zoom closeup from a tripod at 19" set at macro!!! Instructions say the camera cannot focus in the range of the yellow bar, well how do you get away from the yellow bar? Which will also result in removal of the macro setting! Any zooming to get closeup blurs out of focus no matter what I do and that's when still within the optical zoom range.

W1 Sharpening I am new to the Sony W1 and I have read somewhere that the camera should be set to the P mode and the sharpening to the ( - ) minus and it would yeild the best results. I am confused, why would you want the picture to be less sharp if your shooting nature for example. Wouldn't it be better to use the + setting?

Lcd blurred I have a canon power shot a80 and when i turn it on and try to take a picture, on the LCD display i see a mixture of colour which is not even letting me see the image of the picture i would like to take. If i look through the lens and take the image, i am still able to view the picture I had taken if i set the camera on the view pictures. The mixture of colours on the LCD only shows when the camera is set on take the picture... and it doesn't even do it always. Thanks.

I just recently bought a kodak zd710. When i received the product, i turned on the camera and i was immediately prompted to set the date and time. Once i finished, the batteries that the camera came with had quit on me. So i went out and bought new batteries, and when i went to turn the camera on again, the LCD screen did not light up. It has yet to come on when i turn the camera on. Is there any kind of troubleshooting i can try?

Error I was erasing an image on my cf card in camera last week and being it was a tiff I set the camera down as the hourglass spun in the processing mode. The camera then shut off after less than a minute and the only thing that came up was a solid error code on the lcd. No power. Autofocus works, and the nightlight feature works and that's it. Nothing on the back of the camera lights up.I've talked to Fuji about it and was told to make sure the lens was on all the way and replace all the batter

Autofocus problem I dont really know how to explain my problem.. I got a Nikon D40 for Christmas last year and last week we went on vacation. The camera was working fine. but suddenly the camera wouldn't auto focus. Everything is set on auto.. I only have the lens that came with the camera. The battery is charged.. it doesnt even make a noise like its trying to focus. the wiewfinder bracket thingy lights up red but nothing after that. I am new to photography so I know I probably sound like
You have to hold the shutter\015\012down halfway as you compose the first shot so the AF system can focus\015\012and lock, and then the camera fires instantaneously when you press the\015\012shutter the rest of the way. ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera
I have a fully charged battery and I turn the camera on and all of a sudden I cannot get a display on the screen. It gets a few purple waves, but goes back to a black screen. I have it in camera mode and the original settings i had the camera in when i took pictures, which came out very nice. I saved all my photo's to my computer to see if maybe i filled the memory stick, but still no luck... -Sandy
The display is probably bad - it can be replaced. Try taking a picture and download the results on a computer - if it's ok, then that confirms a bad display. The camera is still usable but with a bad display viewer. ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T1 Digital Camera
I just find it weird with the no lens problem. See after purchasing it and test was done the camera is quite okay. I've charge it for until its full and its ready for use for my trip. I'm pretty sure i did not dropped the camera and it was in my laptops case when i have the flight. then worst thing comes when i turned it on and at first the display is blurred again i turn if off and on, then the error lens came out. 4 days in the island i did not used this camera at all. by the time i went back
The island? Maybe sand got in the camera's lens holder - the cyllinder-shaped part that comes out. Or dust from the bag. Try a vacuume cleaner to take out any such thing but do not scratch the lens! Good luck ... Nikon Coolpix S4000 Digital Camera

Concert settings Hi, I am going to a concert, can you tell me the best settings to have the camera on, when I have it on iA if the subject moves then the picture is blurry, as there will lots of movement I obviously need to change this, also when I used it at my son's school in low light the pictures came out dark. Would it be best for me to do manual settings, if so which one? Thanks Julie
Hey Osfan,\015\012 I will start by saying concert photographs are some of the hardest images to capture successfully. The first thing you probably should do is set the iso to the highest setting possible which on this ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18K Digital Camera
I'm not sure what is relevant and what isn't but... Two days ago I tried taking a picture on my timer and all of them came out blurry. I wasn't sure why this was so I started poking around on the camera and decided to reset all factory settings. Then that evening I tried to upload my pictures to my computer as usual. The software (Picasa) locked up. I tried taking the camera out of the cradle and turning it on but it wouldn't turn on. I rebooted my computer and tried turing the camera on
Sometimes a camera software upgrade will help, but it is hard to find software online. I first would look on manufacture's website to see if there is any driver updates you can download to your pc, then do the same with picasa software. Also make sur ... Digital Cameras
