Having problems with your Canon IXUS 80 IS Digital Camera ?

My camera Ixus 80 IS does not open any more and gives lens error, it does not go in or out (possible due to a fall in closed state). Besides that, I have no possibilities to retrieve my pictures from the Memoy card any more. External readers can't retrieve the pictures aswell. So for the 2 problems I'm looking for a solution. Downloading scan programs gave no solution, because the SDHC card does not communicate anymore with any system, What to do now?

Dark pictures I have an Exilim EX-Z40 which i download to an apple powerbook via the USB link. The pictures when printed out look rather 'grey' rather than bright. This was very obvious when the camera SD card was recently printed out direct from a photolab rather than from the computer and compared to those printed out from the computer. The former were very 'bright' with fuller colours. SHould I be doing something different when connecting camera to computer?


Perhaps the lab is at fault? if iPhoto displays the pics with the correct dark/light profile then it is likely to be right. You can alter the profile in the edit window of iPhoto but it would seem the lab messed up. ... Casio Exilim EX-Z40 Digital Camera
