Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A720 IS Digital Camera ?

Just bought it... 'My colours' option is not accessible.

\015 I followed my manual but when I scroll down the left hand side icon column... it skips that option (which is set to off) my metering mode, and my flash exposure as well. \015\012What should I do?\015\012Thanks in advance.\015

Those options are only available when the camera is in P, Tv, Av, or Manual modes. When in the Auto mode or one of the scene modes, the camera sets these options. (See pages 206 - 209 in the manual.)

I bought a Sunpak 383 external flash. When I put it in the hot shoe, the menu in my camera doesn't allow me to access the external flash options. I don't understand how to use the flash


Sunpak 383 is not a 'dedicated' flash that is why it don't give any information to the camera.However set the camera in manual mode and set the aperture and shutter speeds and match the iso of both and it will work like a champion. ... Digital Cameras

I bought a camera from a friend, Olympus e-420. but when i started to use it, i always got dark picture even the flash is already switched on. i'm thinking the built-in flash is delayed, do i have way to make it more accurate? i also noticed when i take pictures it always save's as ORF file. how can i change this settings to a different format? i already tried restoring the default settings but why can't i access the Custom Reset option on the menu bar?


There are multiple reazons for the picture to look dark, a very short exposure, or a low flash intensity.\015\012Try changing the flash intensity, this is done by pressing the Exposure compensation and flash button simultaneously.\015\012 ... Olympus E-420 Digital Camera

Calibration? I can't access the menu in my camera. It doesn't recognize when I click on menu, and there are some options I click not above it, but in another place on the screen and it activates that option. I think I need to calibrate it, but I can not access the menu to do so...

Hi, I have a panasonic Lumix, DMC-FS5 digital camera. When I turn the camera on and it's on 'photograph' mode, a message keeps appearing after a couple of seconds saying: "please turn camera off and then on again". I get the same message everytime and am unable to take any photos or even access the menu options. There are no problems when the mode is set to 'playback' mode. The images are still there and I can scroll through, as well as access the menu.

I bought this webcam A4Tech PK 836-MJ. The specs says that it can be installed for Mac OS 10.4 and later.. Unfortunately, I updated my Mac OS to 10.5 a day before I bought the webcam.

HElppppppppppppp My camera, which i bought on June 10th, 2007, only allows two options when i turn it on: "power off" or "format". I said "format/yes" which says "caution erasing all". It then said, "busy" for a while, but eventually returned to my original two options! After plugging it in to my computer, the computer didn't acknowledge it. I don't know why it's like this in the first place, but please help!

My panasonic has amazing imaging stabilising properties, and crystal clear images. But the flash is too bright, and washes everything out far too much, making faces and scenery white all the time. The colours arent natural more than often. They're just wishy washy. So I bought a sony, and the colours are much more natural, and flash much more reasonable, but the image quality is really not great at all, especially in low light conditions, and the image stabilising is almost useless!!!!

Hi, I recently purchased a D2Xs floor model or demo unit form a liquidation company here is Kansas City. The problem is that I have no menu options and the only thing that comes up when I access the menu on the camera is a small setup menu with about 6-7 options, none of which include a reset or any additional features. This renders the camera practically useless as most of my dials will not work because they need to be directed by the firmware. How can I reinstall the original version 1.0 firmw

Hi. I have a Canon G9 camera. I bought in October 8, 2007 but did not register the camera's warranty until a few days ago. Here's the problem. I dropped the camera a weeks ago... Everything was working fine, no problems. After I bought an extra battery I tried turning the camera on but would not power up. In fact will only power on if I insert and remove the battery several times. Once I get it going, however, it powers off with the lens extended. Please tell me what my options are, s

I have bought a Nikon coopix S600 and recently I have taken a considerable amount of pictures while on holiday.This is the first time that I happened to develop most of them for my album.On computer the colour of the photos was excellent.However I was very disappointed with the picture colours.The colour came out very strong which I did not like. Is there some feature on the camera I am missing out for the printing of these photos?


You said that the pictures on your computer looks perfect. It just that when you print them out, the color came too strong. Well i think it is with the printer and its color separation that has the problem and not the camera. When you see those pi ... Nikon Coolpix S600 Digital Camera

White Screen Ever since a few nights ago, my camera has been showing this white screen. The funny thing is, that I can see the menu and other options perfectly. But when I want to take a picture, the screen is pure white, and even the pictures I take are absolutely white, and sometimes with a light grayish circle in the middle.

Focus Problem I recently bought Olympus C-750. The real problem i have with it so far is that when I point the camera towrds the subject, its focus is adjusted automatically and the subject looks very focused and clear, but when i press the shutter button, the camera re-focuses and makes the subject blurr and in the end pictures come out very blurry. Kindly help me out with that, i.e: do i need to do some setting to avoid that??? and plus i cannot find the manuual focus option in the camera.


I have the C740, which I believe works very similarly if not identically. Unless you have the camera in full time auto focus, I don't believe it actually focuses on the subject until you've pressed the shutter button half way. Until then, the subject ...

Continuous Shooting I'm just getting to grips with this as only bought it a few weeks ago. I've pressed the correct button for the continuous shooting option but it only allows to choose from 'Drive Mode - Single Shooting & Self-Timer/Remote Control'. Should I be doing something else? Thanks

Card Format I just got this Fuji S1 pro as a backup digital camera for an Ebay business, and it's not like the Nikon D1 I already have, where you access the format option through the main menu. I haven't even been able to record one image! Can anyone give me a lead?


Try pushing the play button. It will either show an image or say "No images". Then press the menu button. The option should be right there to format the card. Just press the control pad "up" to format and press "menu/ok". ... Fuji FinePix S1 Pro Digital Camera

Flash issues I bought my daughter a C513 for Christmas. She kept telling me it would not flash and i finally got around to looking at it today. Scrolled through the flash options, but regardless of if it is on auto or fill, it will not flash. Can you advise what to do?


Are you sure it is set to flash. On the camera on the top you will see what looks like a "lightening bolt" on the screen you should see a bolt with an "A" that is auto or just a bolt which is fill.\015\012\015\012Do the following to test ... Kodak EasyShare C513 Digital Camera
