Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

I set my Canon 50d to take large RAW files (cr2) and it is not recognizing them in adobe photoshot cs3. I have tried switching out the card and the same thing happens, i have tried different computers, same thing. However the Canon Utility program that came with the camera recognizes the images however cannot edit them the way you can in photoshop, (so i might as well shoot jpeg) my question is..., is this an internal problem with the camera? it just doesnt make sense?


Answers :

The plug in is avail for cs3 but not cs2 you will have to use the canon photo editor software if you have cs2.
You need to download the Adobe camera raw plug-in for the EOS-50D from their web site, I don't know if the 50D plug-in is available for CS3, it wasn't for CS2,

Hello, I have a Canon PowerShot s3 is. I was taking pictures at my sons football game and next thing I know the lens will not move. I tried to wack it gently and I tried pressure.

I have a Canon EOS 40D camera. We are having problems with using an external flash. The pictures always come out extremely dark with the external flash. The flash seems to work fine, it flashes brightly. The pictures look fine using the built in flash. The flash is a Promaster but we tried a Canon flash and it did the same thing. The camera store we bought the camera and the flash from says it looks like a synchronization issue and that it is a hardware problem with the boot. Their sugges

Hi there, My laptop is suddenly unable to detect the camera, canon lxus 90ls, I have reinstalled the software and also tried a different lead but to no avail. The camera does know the lead is in place as the lens remains stationery when switched on, however I only see the last picture taken on the screen, not the pc connect sign. I have tried going through start/programmes/ window (s) etc, but it is saying the camera is not there. I am totally at a loss. Thankyou.

When I try to take a picture with my Canon PowerShot Camera is tells me that the card is locked and will not take a picture. However, the card is not locked. The camera does this with all cards that are put into it.
