Having problems with your Canon EOS 450D Digital Camera ?

My 450D thinks it's recording RAW pictures - only JPG on the SD

\015 My Canon 450D thinks it's recording RAW pictures, but on the SD card they are JPG. Have upgraded the firmware (which needed to be upgraded anyway) to see if it would reset the camera, but it hasn't.I think this issue started when the camera was in Canon for servicing in March this year. Haven't noticed the problem until just recently and realised the last RAW pics were downloaded from the camera in Feb. Everything after that is JPG on my computer although I take all my photos in RAW. To check where the problem may lie, I have tested the camera taking RAW photos in different sizes, and have used SD cards of different sizes - from 512K, 2Gig and 4Gig. At first I thought it was Aperture downloading the pics as RAW on my Macbook, but now I see that the photos on the cards themselves are JPG.When I take a RAW photo on the camera, the camera thinks it has taken a RAW photo. I say this because it is what comes up on the screen when I review the photo in camera. But the data on the card is JPGI am only new to DSLR photography, and being an amateur, my main work is audio. I have had a very busy year, so all the photos I've been taking since April have been downloaded to Aperture through the year for when I have time to manipulate the photos and learn more about post production. I'm currently in the middle of some leave from work so when went to do some work on my photos, I realised that from April (after the camera service) only JPG exist on my computer. To come to the conclusion that it was the camera's problem was helped by the fact that not reformatted any of my SD cards since April, and the testing I've done since. As I said I have the camera permanently set to Large Raw pics when I am taking photos. So can you help me with this problem.. Thanks Cate Cahill\015

Answers :

It is possible that you have set your Camera to RAW+L instead of RAW. Take card out ofb the camera, use a card reader and browse the card using the OS (as auxillary drive) rather than Aperture. I suspect that the RAW files are present, juts not visible on your computer possibly because of some setting in Aperture.

My Sony Steady Shot DSC-H5 says "recording" when I am taking regular pictures. Uses up the memory stick quite quickly, although it lets me take about 30 pictures...!!! Doesn't actually record, actually takes pictures, just says "recording". Think I must have accidentally programmed something wrong.

There are some multi burst programs etc which show RECORDING, but actually store pictures. You can always do a reset you know (initialize from the camera SETUP menu) - that should help. ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera

White lines My camera now records whie lines across the image, like scan lines on a TV and is prone to overexpose. Recording on video mode is no problem so I assume the sensor is OK.

I have an old Sony Hi8 Handycam model CCD-TR705E. Have not used it for about 4 years and decided to upload tapes to DVD via a DVD recorder. Worked fine for the first 5 hours of film then suddenly picture not visible (sound is fine) but when in review mode (press play then rewind without pressing stop) can see pictures. Have tried using a new head cleaning tape. Do you think this is very dirty heads or more serious? How can I fix it if head cleaner tape doesn't?

I record video on my sx110. It creates a .jpg file. I upload the file to my macbook, but it seems to be a single picture. I want to upload the entire video and then convert it to a format that can be uploaded to the Internet.

Hello. When I download pictures to my computer, the camera sends,in addition to current photos, a series of photos I took last year. These older photos do not show up when I review photos on the camera so I can't view them to delete them (which I thought I already did some time ago.) I have an XD card in the camera but I don't think the old photos were recorded on that...Can you help?

LCD/Recording Picture When I take a picture, the camera will only record about 1/4 of the picture on the LCD screen, then rest of the image is black. I was taking lots of pictures before that and the image recorded on the LCD. All of a sudden (in the mdidle of taking lots of pictures), I noticed the the whole image was not recording. I have changed the battery, changed Compact Flash Cards and nothing corrects it. Even when I upload the picture to the computer, the image is only one about 1/4

Same problem with mine. You can get it to work partially again by taking the lens off, and flipping the black sub mirror up \015\012(can be seen in this picture http://www.shockingbird.com/glomer2/members/upload/rebel_lens_open.jpg ).

Missing Pictures I inserted an old memory card into my new Vivicam 5199, now my old pictures have gone missing but not all of them and don't think i've deleted them.

When i viewed my pictures i came across a screen which says 'file format error! Is this anything to do with my missing pitures?

GRAINY PICTURES I got my FZ8 two weeks ago and it took beauiful pictures at first. Now all of my pix are grainy when I transfer the onto my computer to view them.

It appears that pictures are being taken with the lens cap on - when that's not the case. In other words all camera indications are that the picture is "taken", but it is a black square. I'm thinking a mechanical problem with shutter? The camera seems to "think" it is taking a picture.

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very ... Kodak EasyShare DX4530 Digital Camera
