Everything is good except when I preview the pictures I had taken, if I preview at 1X, (normal mode), I can some black shadow like lighting happening inside my picture, see the link at http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v712/gomcse2002/IMAG0028.jpg, Please help.

Dsc wx5 Hi guys, maybe some sweet guy in here can help me. When i take a "standard" picture the camera tunes up the light so much that I can´t see anything on the picture it almost looks like a blank white page. This only happens when i take a standard picture. I can do panorama picture, 3D picture and video recording perfectly. I have tried everything in the settings menu, i have reset the camera, but nothing seems to help. If i take a picture where the is not much light, the picture is v

DC-3185 Frozen A really odd problem is my son's DC3185 is frozen with a live LCD and the Flash in auto mode except the flash icon "flashes" I see a good LCD image of what I am looking at but can not take a picture. The led light is also red. I have installed new batteries and it didn't help. I inserted a flash card and the screen indicated the Flash icon but the flash keeps flashing on and off and the red led light stays on. When I plug it in to a USB port I get the computer to see it as a e

Taking pics I just got a Nikon D40 camera and I can't seem to figure out how to view on the screen what I'm looking at when I'm trying to take a picture. I can view them in play mode after the fact, but isn't there a way to see on the screen instead of having to look through the little window to see what I'm shooting? Thanks in advance for any help!!!

That's because the Nikon D40 does not have Live View. Up until a couple of years ago, no DSLR's had live preview, due to the design of a DSLR over a point and shoot, as it has a pentamirror arrangement that effectivly deflects the light path to the v ... Nikon D40 Body Only Digital Camera

I have an olympus fe340 camera. Recently the pictures started coming out with all light. Sometime there are just striped of bright, white light layered horizontally in the pictures. Outside pictures are the worst. can I send you a picture to see it?

This is almost certainly a failed image sensor and there is nothing which you can do to fix it. if the LCD screen on the camera shows pictures correctly which were taken before the fault occurs it confirms that it's a sensor fault.The FE- ... Olympus FE-340 Digital Camera

Black LCD Same issue. Powers up fine but lcd is black. Looks like it "sees" a little light around the edges but that's it. Takes black pictures. Can still see old images fine. It's like the camera went blind.

Close-up picture Hi! I purchased my camera to take up close-up pictures of handmade greeting cards. The cards are 4" x 5 1/2" with lots of little details. I'd like to show as much detail as possble. I'm not sure what the best setting are? I've tried using the flash, but the whole picture just glares out, the light bounces off of the card and makes a big glare in the center. Without the flash, the picture is too dark. Can you help me figure out the best setting to use? Or, what kind of lighting

Lens distorded My view is blurred and jagged appearing. When taking the picture anyway, it comes out the same, and but a little hour glass thing comes in view and empties and then it reads card is full, after taking only one picture.

Actuall I put the old one in to see if it did the same thing and it does. How ever you can help, I would appre
