I make photos of my oil paintings - placing the painting on the floor and shooting down. The "auto focus" will not focus on some paintings and the photos are blurry. I have tried all settings tn "Manual" mode plus using the other shooting mode. Some paintings just will not be in focus! Any help will be most gratefully appreciated. Ken B.

When camera gets turned on, the lens goes in and out of focus a few times and then screen turns blue and displays "D : 5f08 5e02" and does not go back to shooting pictures again. But for just looking at the pictures on the memory card, it works if turned on in that mode. If turned on in photo-shooting modes, it cannot be switched back to view photos. (OLYMPUS M700)

LCD White-out I have had this Fuji FinePix A350 since Christmas 2006. This August while on vacation and taking quite a few pictures with a new 1GB XD card, the LCD screen would come on with a blank white screen as the camera was turned on. I continued to take photos using the optical viewfinder to frame my pictures, hoping that it was still working even if I couldn't view them. Fortunately, all the photos did come out fine even though some were totally out of focus (focusing was sometimes a prob

Nikkor lense I have a AF-S DX Zoom Nikkor ED 18-70mm lense. Up to now it has been good for me. Now I have a problem. When I take indoor shots the lense will not focus in it spins like it is trying to focus but thats all it does is spin back and forth.

My new Canon G11, purchased in August,2010: 1) The camera cord (to load photos from camera to computer) is no longer interfacing, but the card works (I don't think it is the software as it malunctions on both office PC and home Macpro). Also noticed that sometimes when trying the cord, when I turn camere on, the lens comes out, which never happend when transferring photos via cord 2) I noticed shortly thereafter that the camer no longer "beeps" when the green in-focus boxes appear on hte view
It sounds to me like one or more of the wires in the cord has broken, or there is a problem with the USB port on the computer. Try swapping to the other ports to see if the problem goes away before going forward.If the problem is present ... Canon PowerShot G11 Digital Camera

LCD screen turns purple in shooting mode. Photos can be taken. Most are Ok, some slightly out of focus or faded coloration. If switched to play back mode and then back top shooting mode, display is Ok for a short time then degrades from top center in a V shape to a purple line display.

Using my Canon XSi/450D, I'm interested in doing High Dynamic Range photography. But I can't discover how to make the automated shutter-speed range multi-shot (3 for the 450D) AEB work. I've gone into the menu and select and change the AEB range ( -2V) and pressed "set." Working from the "AV" in creative mode, I then set up my first shot with focus and ISO, and shoot. Now what? When I press the shoot button, an ordinary photo is captured, and if I continue to press the button additional cap
