Hello, I have been given a very old model of this camera for use in a workshop with street children. The screen is out of focus and all the pictures come out blurry. When I look at the screen without any pictures on it looks like grainy like it is a really bad resolution. Is the camera just too old? It also gives off smoke when the flash goes off! If possible could you get back to me asap. Many thanks, Kate

Sounds like more trouble than it's worth. ... Canon IXY 1000 Digital Camera

I just got a Fuji Finepix S1500 and the viewing screen is showing a somewhat distorted image --- it looks like fine lines or minute color bleeds on the screen. In addition, when I connect the camera to the USB port of my computer it keeps saying that there is a "Power Surge to the Hub Port". Please help!

You are not supposed to connect the camera to a USB hub. Try connecting it directly to the USB port on the laptop or PC. Also, if the batteries are rechargeable and pretty much dead, the drain on the USB may be a bit much. Have you tried using fresh ... Fuji FinePix S1000FD Digital Camera

I would like to set up 3 webcams at my cottage (very close to city) because of thefts. My ideal objective would be for my family or me to be able to view pictures from any of our various home, office and school computers online in near real time. My question - is it possible for the cams to feed through a wireless router and modem directly on to the net without an intervening computer? We have lots of electricity and a permanent cable/internet connection. I can use my computer for set-up but am

I agree IP cameras are great but are still expensive. A dedicated CCTV DVR connected to your network is the proper solution. These can be found online and will cost the same as a multiple IP camera set up. You could also use a PC with video captur ... Digital Cameras

LCD screen I want to view my subject through the LCD screen before taking my picture. I am only able to view through the view finder like a regular 35mm. Is this not possible?

Correct, Since the camera is an DSLR, there is no way for the sensor to have a 'preview' of your subject. The mirror reflects the image and the shutter is closed, covering the CCD sensor until you take a picture. ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens

My son dropped my Canon powershot SD450 while it was on, and the nose was out. I can still view photos, but the nose (or shutter... not sure what to call it) is stuck out and whenever I turn it on it beeps (the screen is black) and the screen displays "E18" in the bottom left corner. When turned on, right before the beep, the nose sounds like it is trying to extend, but almost like it is jammed. Is this fixable??

Definately fixable! The e18 error is just a lens error from when it was dropped. The site that specializes in the repairs on the Canon Powershots is: www.camerasandparts.com ... Canon Digital Cameras

No picture I have a FinePix S2 Pro that I have had a couple years. Yesterday when I took pictures with it every picture is black when viewed on the LCD screen. The lens cap is off and I have tried several different lenses and memory cards, adjusted the ISO, tried it with and without a flash, but still the same result. I can view previously recorded pictures, so I know its not the LCD screen. Could the CCD have gone bad? Any thoughts by anyone?
