Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SX10 IS Digital Camera ?

I'm taking exterior shots of a building using the auto mode. The roof comes out wavy. Have an appointment shortly to take more pics. Why is this happening? (I miss my old SLR ...)


Answers :

Cameras are subject to some unusual conditions due to lenses being round and the image you take being square. They work better the closer you are to the center of the lens. Normally you don't see this, but when you take a picture of something long and straight and it's near the edge of your picture, it can come up wavy or crooked.
\015\012
\015\012You can recompose to avoid long straight things near the edge, or you can take several pictures and stitch them together in Photoshop. This will let you get the roofline more near the center of several pictures, and then after you stitch you can crop to make the photo the way you want.
\015\012
\015\012You're dead on about the SLR, though. SLR's have bigger and better lenses, and on digital SLR's, the sensors are much bigger. This gives them huge advantages in how they focus light, and overall it makes the near edge lens issues less noticable.

The zoom is stuck on my Olympus Camedia C-8080 camera following a short face-down drop. How can I open and repair this, or where can I get it done cheaply? The camera has served me well, and although I've already upgraded to the Canon EOS 40D SLR I;d still like to use the old Olympus. Thanks for any assistance. Dan [email protected]

Nikon D50, digital SLR, I was using my camera at a wedding and the flash just stopped working. The camera thinks the flash is going off - it pops up and takes them quickly but no light goes off.... do these cameras have traditional 'bulbs' could it be as simple as the bulb has blown and it needs a new one? or am i looking at something bigger than that? I am normally an old school film camera person - i dont know much about this at all... thanks kathleen

Can someone help out. I have a 058 model tripod, a good old work horse, I want to take the head off and replace it with a #268. the problem is, how do you remove the head? I have removed the 3 small screws from under the base, but nothing gives. What am I missing?? Thanks. Geoff.

Missing Pictures I inserted an old memory card into my new Vivicam 5199, now my old pictures have gone missing but not all of them and don't think i've deleted them.

Memory chips I have a 4GB memory chip in my SLR camera, yet I can't take more than 160 pictures. I have another camera with only 1GB chip and I can take 1000 pictures. What am I doing wrong with my SLR camera? Thank you.

Missing shots I have a Coolpix L18/L16 Nikon and I am missing all of my pictures. I take them but by the time the shot goes through the picture is lost. It continually results in pictures where my daughter's eyes are closed. What can I do? I am guessing that some setting is off which makes it take too long to snap the photo.


Your camera works fine, but they made it like this, so you should push the button all the way down, not half way, because when you push half way, the camera focus on the target, and the little lasers flash, but that is no shoot... on the other hand, ... Nikon COOLPIX L18 Digital Camera

Camera slow After taking a single picture on my Nikon Coolpix it takes forever to allow me to take another one right after.
