Blured Pictures A few weeks ago, I sent in a DSCW50 camera under warranty. I used the camera during the holidays and the problem still persists: images continue to come out blurred and out of focus. I feel extremely DISSAPOINTED about this SONY product and I really regret the day I purchased this camera. I have done an extensive research over the web and I just learned that I am not the only consumer having a problem with this SONY product. In addition, in comparison with the images taken


When you sent the camera in did they give you a diagnosis? Even set to macro it shouldn't affect wider angle pictures. My money would be on a fault with the autofocus, sony probably should have replaced the unit. I wouldn't give up on sony though, ev ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera

I have a Canon S30 digital camera and a Macbook running OS x 10.5.8. I use a San Disk USB card reader to download the images to my computer and when I do, the images look normal when they are at thumbnail size, but when I open them they are distorted, cut up into horizontal columns, discolored, and rearranged vertically. This happens whether I use iPhoto, Image Capture, or go directly from the device onto my desktop. I have not downloaded any Canon software or drivers onto my computer, that may


One thing to remember is that most digital cameras capture an image and a thumb nail, the thumb nail in many cases is a separate file. So the problem can be the camera itself.\015\012 The other issue is the image editing software you are using and ho ... Digital Cameras

I bought a Canon 40D from Amazon--through Ace Digital Photo--in a kit with a 17-85mm lens, presumably new. I replaced it recently with the 50D. Now I learn that the camera, which was never outside my home and has about 100 activations was used--quite a lot of use and significant dust on the sensor. I was cheated, obviously. I can see the dust myself and a camera shop told me the camera was used extensively. Well, I am pretty disappointed. The purchase date was around 08/01/2008 and I still


This is not a Canon web site. But I seriously doubt that Canon would send used cameras to its dealers -- where would they get them? More likely one of Ace's former customers returned the camera and Ace re-sold it as new. Your unfortunate situation is ... Canon Digital Cameras

I have just purchased a Bushnell Trophy Cam Model 119450. It will take one photo of a moving subject, then only records at the time interval rate ie every 2 minutes or whatever interval is selected. The result is that I end up with hundreds of images taken every 2 minutes (or whatever time interval is selected) but with no images of the animals I am attempting to photograph. I am using the cam in a remote location in India and I am very disappointed with the performance of this camera. Please he

Hi all, I wonder if you can supply some advice regarding a Sigma17-35mm lens I purchased earlier in the year. Basically if I use the automatic or 'P' setting on my Canon EOS 30D camera the image is over exposed by 1 to 2 stops. If I use the same functions with my Canon 18 -55 kit lens the exposure is correct so I would presume the camera is not causing the problem. The only way I can get a correct exposure with the Sigma lens is to compensate manually for each shot. Please note the exposure p

I have recently purchased the NX2 software, and as recommended changed the setting on my D70s from JPEG fine to NEF (or Raw). In the past I have downloaded files using either Nikon View software or the Microsoft download wizard. But the Microsoft wizard tells me their are no pictures on the camara, and Nikon View software transfers the first two images then encounters an "unexpected problem", and when I try again it says "an unexpected error occured. Try again. This just repeats. Can you help?

I have an canon power shot A85. The image taken by it is so blur. We thought it may be the display issue, however the old picture saved in the card are still sharp. The camera can still be used to take video, and the quality is good. Is this due to the setting, since kids have played it more than 6 months. Thank you.
