When the the Cannon EOS digital Rebel XT is set to auto focus the camera will not focus and it will not allow me to take a picture when the setting is in the full auto focus mode and not in the creative zone. However, it will allow me take pictures in the manual foucs setting.

Have the Nikon D90 camera and it does not allow me to take pictures when ever I want. It is in full auto mode and just does not want to take the picture even in bright day light. The F keeps on blinking in full auto mode and even if I switch to manual mode it does not allow me to change settings. It is very frustrating! what is wrong with this D90??

The blinking F-- means that the camera doesn't think a lens is attached. You can try removing the lens and re-attaching it. Or if you have another lens, try that. There are quite a few reports of this issue with the 18-135 kit lens. ... Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-200mm lens

While taking a picture on full auto setting and again on photo setting, I rec'd this message: Err 5 The built-in flash's auto pop-up was obstructed. Turn the power switch to off and on again. Is there a way to fix this quickly? I am in China.

Turn off the camera and remove the battery. Wait for like 1 minute and then put them back again and turn on the camera. If the above does not work, try pressing and holding the menu button for like 5 seconds for a reset.Pleas ... Digital Cameras

Forgets settings My optio s40 worked well until just after the warranty expired. Then it started acting up. It maintains the default settings in auto mode. It allows me to change them, but when I shut it off and power up again, it has returned to the default settings. In Pict mode, it maintains EV +1, AWB as flourescent lighting and image size as one higher than the smallest size. Again, I can change the settings, but when I shut it off and power up again, these are the settings it has. Any idea

I had the same problem. Pentax told me to format the memory inside the camera (take out the memory stick and camera will be set to camera memory). This works! (though i have to do it approx every 200pics, the problem keeps coming back!) ... Pentax Optio S40 Digital Camera

I am using an Olympus E-500. and am trying to use the built in flash, set to one eight or to one sixty fourth of normal output, to trigger an external flash unit. The camera is set to "Vivid", manual, auto focus, and iso 100. From the "manual flash" menu I should be able to select either full, 1/4. 1/16 or 1/64 of the output. However, those choices never light up. I keep cycling through the first two lines of the menu and never reach the third line with the light output options I want. P

Blury images Re: Sony Cyber-shot 6mp (DSC-H2) Our outdoor images are beautiful but nearly all of our indoor images are blury/shaky making the camera unusable. We use the Auto Adjustment setting both indoors and outdoors since we are mainly taking candid photos of our kids/family members. We reviewed the menus & manual but we can't figure it out. Is the ''Super Steady Shot'' function turned off? Can I return it to the factory setting? TY in advance.

Resolution I have a Canon Rebel XTI. Here is my problem. I took some senior pictures and then downloaded them onto my computer so that I could order them from my lab. The largest size that I could order was a 5x7 because of the resolution. What am I doing wrong. I have my camera set for the highest setting and I am using full auto. Can you tell me what may be affecting the resolution?

I suspect that what you have done is upload the thumbnails to the lab and not the actual picture.(check the sizes in kb) As fertobar says even at the lowest resolution setting the 400d is more than capable of printing out decent 5x7s. ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera

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

Nothing, in full auto mode you can't adjust allmoust anything.

I have a nikon d200. The last time I used it (only a few days ago) it was fine, everything normal. Then yesterday I pull out out of the case and everything seems to be going wrong. It is metering INSANELY low, like a shutter speed of 100 in full daylight produces a REALLY dark image. It won't auto focus at all, and i am unable to change the fstop in manual or aperture priority modes. I tried to restore it to factory settings and the lcd screen flashed to indicate it had been restored but no luck

Your boyfriend is probably right, and it makes sense, if you can't change the f-stops. \015\012The following blog on Flickr might help you:\015\012 ... Nikon D200 Body Only Digital Camera

Just curious if the new batteries are alkaline or rechargeables. If they're rechargeables, make sure they're fully charged, but since alkalines come with the camera, I would use those.\015\012Couldn't find any information about the F689 in t ... Pentax K100D Super Digital SLR Camera

In auto mode, the flash works only if it is necessary. You are saying that the flsah doesn't work in auto mode, and I assume that in other modes it's working properly. That means there is nothing wrong with the flash. So don't worry about the flash, ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

My EOS 400D flash sometimes pops up in bright daylight in full auto mode. I sent it back to Cannon who returned it saying no fault found. I then began to think that the problem was the way I held the camera and that I may be obscuring the (light?) sensor near the grip with my hand. After not using the camera for a while I am now taking shots again and the flash pop up problem has re-appeared. I am now sure I am not blocking the sensor. Any ideas?

In full auto mode, the camera tries to use fill flash, when it detects a backlit scene (e.g. a person in front of a window). So this is not a bug, it's a feature!If you don't want the flash to fire, you can push it down and still take the shot. ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens
