Answers :

Oddly enough Canon thought that people would only want date stamps on "Postcards". The date stamp options is only allowed when you select the "Postcard" size (1600X1200) in the function menu.

I hope this helps!

My camera is producing spots, or freckle-like or shadow-like spots which are noticable on photos such as a clear blue sky photo. The spots are in the exact same place on photos even when I change to different lens. I know the mirror flips up for a photo, but to be safe, I have cleaned it, but that didn't help anything. Purchased camera 11/07.


You have dust on your sensor. your best bet is to get it cleaned professionally, . if you want to clean it yourself, get a kit like this\015\012\015\012http://www.amazon.com/Digital-Survival-KIT-Sensor-Eclipse/dp/B000PNGM18/ref=sr_1_2?s=elect ...

Blurry/strippy photos I just got to Bilbao in Spain doing a photographic research project but every time and try and take a photo and view it comes out strippy with lots of little lines really close together and interspersed with a couple of fat ones too!! I've taken it to some photo shops today but there is apparently no camera repair places as such in the whole city! My spanish isn't the best but some of the assistants seemed to think it's the focus.

My Canon digital camera puts the date and time on the photo, but when I sent away for prints (used Kodak.com) the prints were just stamped with the day the print was made, not the date the photo was taken. Do you know of any place that will print the date the photo was taken on the print?

Importing Images Hi, When we take photos on our 500D we can preview the photos on the screen. When we place our Camera card into the computer and try to import the file they say that it is not a supported mode. Displaying the image number for example as IMG_0135.CR2 usually they will display CRW_0135. Is there a solution ?


The CR2 suffix means that the picture was taken in the RAW file format, a proprietary format. This requires that the images be processed by a software conversion to be 'readable' by the computer.

I make photos of my oil paintings - placing the painting on the floor and shooting down. The "auto focus" will not focus on some paintings and the photos are blurry. I have tried all settings tn "Manual" mode plus using the other shooting mode. Some paintings just will not be in focus! Any help will be most gratefully appreciated. Ken B.


I don't know how close you need to be to the paintings, but if it's close enough to need the "macro"setting, then you need to activate it for close focussing. ... Fuji FinePix J10 Digital Camera

Process Cropping For the very first time I placed an order for prints with Snapfish. Most of my images had been edited by me more or less with Photoshop. There is a place at the end of the ordering process where they let you know how some images will be cropped (on the top and bottom). I didn't want mine cropped so I choose to have the photos printed to a slightly smaller size where the cropping would not be necessary. Well, I received my prints and found that some were cropped anyway, and, of

I have a Nikon D70 camera. I'm using a Lexar 2GB card inside. Problem focuses on the card. Previous to this moment, card has worked fine. Today, shot photos and when I hooked up the camera to download the pics, got an error in the viewfinder (CHR). Looked at the manual, and it said problem was with the card. I removed the card, and placed it in a card reader. It worked fine and I was able to transfer the photos. Replaced the card, and still get the same error. I've already re-formatted the card,


First, memory cards don't last forever, so it may be time for a new card. Make sure you check the pins in your camera and the contacts in your card for dust/dirt. I'd guess you already looked at this, though. \015\012\015\012I've had s ... Nikon D70 Body Only Digital Camera

If you have another lens, switch it and take some shots of the sky. If the spot is gone, it probably was the lens that needs cleaning/servicing.
