Answers :

Using the camera in program mode with auto bracketing turned on should give you reasonable results. Winter light is “cooler” in nature and the bright reflections from snow\015\012and ice tend to make the final image too “bright."

You can use flash as well. Remember to keep a spare battery for the camera, and keep it warm if you plan on being in the cold very long.

Hi I have a D7000 and would like to go to Norway to photograph the Northern Lights. I have looked on the web to see what lens would be suitable. Here are some ideas I found. Would you be able to give me your opinion about which one would be better for the lights and also versatile for other photography. 14-24 f2.8 17-35 f2.8 17-55 f2.8 24-70 f2.8


When taking photos of large objects at a distance, wide-angle lenses are best. It will be dark outside so you will want one with a large aperture. I would probably go with the 17-55 f2.8. If you can find a lens similar to this, but with a wider apert ... Nikon Digital Cameras

Just had my Canon Powershot s1 is flash explode in my face at a meeting with over 30 people attending. I took a picture, the flash went up and suddenly it popped so loud that people ducked. There was also a fire/smoke smell coming from the flash area. Very scary. Those witnessing said they would back me up if suit filed. Checked the batteries and they work fine. The camera will take pictures still but without a flash. Hear of anything like this before? Recall issue?

I had the "Access" error when turning on my Sony DSC-W70. The lens would go in and out a few times, and then I would be instructed to turn the power off and on again, which did not help. After reading comments from a few people with the same problem, I tried yanking on the lens when it was out and giving it a good couple of twists. I also took a q-tip with alcohol on it and cleaned all around the sides of the lens. Worked like a charm!

I would like to find a video camera that will allow me to freeze frames and get a single image from the video. I take animal pictures and using a regular camera is frustrating. If I could get 10 seconds of video, then take out a single image for a picture, it would help. I do not need more than 1 megaPixel quality. Thanks for the help


Sounds like you just mostly have problems with the camera not taking the picture as soon as you push the button. There are some ways to get a single frame from a camera video file, but I think the best way to get what you really need is to have a ca ... Digital Cameras
