Focus problems Hello, I just got the new A95 after enjoying the A80 for a few months. I'm experiencing two major problems, occurring especially when shooting in low-light conditions: a. The image displayed on the LCD screen is very dark, while in the A80 it would automatically become lighter after pressing half way. b. The auto focus won't work lower indicator blinks yellow). I have experienced these problems so intensely with my A80. What might be the problem?

Dust problem I have the *Ist D and dust was a significant problem the first month I had it. I think it came from the factory packed with dust. After the first month, I got in the habit of frequently blowing it out and raising the mirror to blow only when there's visible dust on the images. I've had to do that perhaps four times in eight months. I don't think dust is as big a problem as some seem to.


Ive only had my DS for a few weeks, but have changed lenses many times. I havent noticed any dust yet at all in any of the 300 or so images that Ive really taken a good look at. I am pretty careful though -always cover the lenses with the rear cap an ... Pentax *ist D Digital Camera

My Canon Powershot A95 now has the problem described in great detail all over the web...purple screen of death..that indicates a highly probable ccd failure. Fresh batteries and new compact flash card does nothing.
