All of a sudden i can't see anything through my viewfinder on my canon 5d (not Mark II) even when I look at a bright light (then it is only a dim blur). It does take photos which appear on the LCD, but I cannot see what I am shooting. Does anyone know if I hit something by mistake or a solution to this problem? Please advise as I am traveling and need my camera to operate correctly. Many thanks, Mia

Blurry Images Hi, I have a coolpix 5700 and sometimes when I take pictures with it and later go look at them on the camera's display they start out blurry and then "snap" into focus. However, when I later load them on my computer, they remain blurry. I can't find anything in the manual describing this phenomenan but it really annoys me because the pictures look so good on the camera, but I can't get that quality on my print outs or monitor display. Does anyone know anything about this? I'd like

I have had my camera for not even a year and it recently started having this problem. Whenever I take a picture, the object will look fine in the display, but when I take the picture it gets horizontal lines across the picture. It is much worse if there is any natural light coming into the picture. I have tried adjusting the flash, the white balance, but the pictures are still coming out this way. Also, if there is a good amount of natural light, you can't see the object you at all, it looks

I dropped my camera and since then I can take photos, the camera focuses, my display is fine when viewing previously shot images and the normal display information but when the shutter is pressed all o see is black. I don't know if the images are being taken or if they aren't. I tried taking of the lense and pressing the shutter and a black box with a **** of light shows. With the lense on nothing but black shows. Is this issue with the lense or body? Any feedback is appreciated.

Nikon CoolPix S500 shows colored lines on lcd and in photos where the lights are bright. I have restored settings tried using it with no flash, soft flash, and auto flash and the problem continues.

I have a Polaroid Impulse QPS and it won't turn on anymore. Usually to take photos I open the flash and a little red light comes on next to the button that you press to take a picture. In a couple seconds it turns to green and I can take the picture, but all of a sudden the light stopped going on at all. so when I press the button, nothing happens. I was thinking maybe it's a battery problem, but I can't figure out where to put batteris in the camera! I got it used, so I've never done it be

The display screen shows images very distorted like it is too bright and the image "runs" it's really strange. Almost like when you look at a heart beat monitor and it "spikes". I knocked the camera off my desk while trying to charge it, and I am afraid I might have messed up the lens or something. The image is clear when looking at the settings, but the display is very distorted.

Hello, I have a brand new sony cybershot dsc-w310 camera and its worked great for the first 2 days ive had it. Now it doesnt seem to want to turn on.

LCD monitor does not light up, and consequently, does not display any image (as some other digital cameras do) during the aiming and focusing processes - sort of prescanning the image - before the shutter is half-way then fully pressed. In other words, is the LCD monitor designed soley to display image review (playback) and show menues!


Actually the reason is due to the way an SLR works. The shutter doesn't open up to the CCD device (the digital equivalent of the film) until you press the shutter release button to take the shot. Until then, an angled mirror points the viewed image u ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera
