Having problems with your Canon EOS 450D Digital Camera ?
My 450d canon won't turn on and when the battery is in, the WB button (second on the right side of the screen) is blue. I have a feeling this means' get it repaired' as I had a friend borrow it and said they spilt a drink near it but not on it, but this seems like they may have spilt the drink ON my camera and have caused some sort of water damage.
I'm really quite worried as I'm often told repairs cost more than the camera is worth and I don't want to have to buy another!
This happened to my 450d had it fixed at Fixation cost

Shutter Lag-Time The shutter lag-time on this camera seems quite long to me. I have read the manual that came with the book as well as a "short course" book on the G6 and this isn't really mentioned. I am wondering if this is a problem unique to my camera or if others have noticed this. In "AUTO" mode it is the worst. Am I missing something, or is this just the way the camera operates?
The G5 has a rather short shutter lag and a rather lengthy focus lag. So if you half depress the shutter release to focus, and then moments later fully depress the shutter release I expect you will find very little lag. But I would not expect a prosu ... Canon PowerShot G6 Digital Camera

Fixing yourself As long as you take it steady and have a box with compartments in for all the screws at different stages you should be all right. This model has the older style wires with different size plugs so you really can't go wrong. I think it is only the screen and possibly the keypad that have ribbon strips to worry about. There is very little in there really. 2 circuit boards, lens unit and flash unit. borrow a camera and photograph each stage

My camera was dropped and now the aperture is messed up, giving me really dark and grainy pictures in bright surroundings, even set as low as 25.

When turning on the camera, the card reader light flashes sometimes for a full minute before you can take a picture, I am using a Olympus xD 2GB memory card which works fine after the card reader light quits flashing.

Focus There is one problem that I have with this camera - Auto Focus in low lighting and it has really limited manual focus. Outdoors this camera is outstanding, I haven't found any pitfalls outdoors yet. 10x optical zoom plus 2.5" LCD WOW. Although the LCD is littly choppy, but I don't care about that, pictures turn out really gooood. Anyways back to Auto Focus problem. Do any of you have the same problem? Or this is my ability problem? That limited manual focus really bugs me! I'd like to hear
I have similar problem. So I use manual focus (1m,3m,inf) & move camera for finest pix. On AF, the adjustment seem to go past sharpest image point but settles on a fuzzier setting. Is there any place that can make a repair? ... Toshiba PDR-M700 Digital Camera
No power The camera will not turn on. We have replaced the AA batteries, still no power. This is my son's camera and while out of town he used it quite a bit. He said the camera was warm while using the video option. He quit using it, but was unable to get it to turn on. Is there something else we can try?

Shutter Lag All, I have an Olympus 5050 Digital Camera that I have been using for a while now for home use and I am quite happy with the results. The only complaint I have is with the capture speed of the camera. The shutter lag seems to be about between 3-5 seconds which becomes quite obvious while taking pictures of moving objects (moving kids). I don't know if the issue is with the shutter speed of the camera or with the slower memory cards. I am using the SimpleTecg 256 MB Compact Flash card
Card speed won't interfere with shutter lag.\015\012\015\012The lag is much less (near non-existent) if you pre-focus. Or use manual focus with small enough aperture to get lots of depth of field. Make sure your kids are in the focus zone and just sn ... Olympus Camedia C-5050 Zoom Digital Camera

I have a polaroid big shot and no instruction manual. I have also never used a polaroid camera before.

Hi, I have a Canon IXUS 95IS camera.. For some reason, when I attempt to take a photo, the LCD screen isn't displaying what is actually in view? In movie mode it comes up on the screen but when i flick it to Auto or camera mode, the screen goes black and only shows the little icons... Weirdly enough, it still takes the picture but the really annoying thing is it doesn't show up on the screen what you're taking a photo of so it makes it really hard for the person taking the actually photo... can

Hi, I am in Rwanda trying to do a photo workshop with some kids. I was given a Sony Cybershot S750 to work with (in addition to my own cameras), but the owner does not have the driver on her computer and I cannot find a driver for this computer for MAC. I have a Powerbook Mac OS X Version 10.5.8. I really need to be able to download pictures to this camera and it's hard to believe that I can't find the proper driver so that my MAC will recognize it. I really would appreciate some help.

Hi I have an Olympus 1050 SW which had been coping well with canyoning. ... until now. After the last canyon trip, the camera had severe condensation problems in the LCD screen and lens. I have dried the camera out with a hairdryer and used silica gel packets, which worked OK. But now when I point and shoot the camera it gives me streaks across the image. However, if I use the movie camera option, no streaks. I'm not quite sure what to do with the camera as it's past warranty and I'm reluctan
The fact that the streaks are present only when shooting stills confirm that the issue is not with the LCD display but with the imaging chip. The camera uses a different section of the imaging chip to record video with, so what's happened is that moi ... Digital Cameras
