White screen? My camera has suddenly stopped working. When I press the red 'shoot' or green 'review' button, all I get on the display is a white screen. Pressing the shutter button does make it shoot, and the zoom and the flash work. I have just taken the card out and examined the jpg files - it is still taking pictures. So it's the display that is busted. I guess my question is: Is it worth the repair bill to get it fixed?

Button-be-dead Ok, so this might sound kind of stupid but my camera was in my purse and I didn't drop it or anything, but when I went to take it out to take pictures, the button you push to take the picture was already half down so it won't stop auto-focusing. I can't zoom in or out, look through my pictures, turn the flash off, delete pictures, or change picture styles.

Blured Pictures I just added the sb 600 speedlight to my 8800 camera, and when i take a picture without any zoom used, the picture looks great, as soon as i use the zoom the picture is slightly blured. I checked all the settings I could think of but my thought is when I zoom the flash it should compensate and the picture should be sharp especially using VR.
