I have a Nikon D70 and i am a photographer I shot a customers photos today. I shot the first half of the photos on this compact flash card and downloaded to my computer and then put it back in the camera and formatted the card. When I put the card back in I shot the rest of the photos using the same card. The last 2 photos I shot said that there was no image file and that I needed to change the card. I went to download the files to the computer but its telling me that the card needs to be format

LCD/Recording Picture When I take a picture, the camera will only record about 1/4 of the picture on the LCD screen, then rest of the image is black. I was taking lots of pictures before that and the image recorded on the LCD. All of a sudden (in the mdidle of taking lots of pictures), I noticed the the whole image was not recording. I have changed the battery, changed Compact Flash Cards and nothing corrects it. Even when I upload the picture to the computer, the image is only one about 1/4

Dead Nikon D50 in mint condition... Changed lenses with the power off. Powered back on and no LCD, or any actions at all. Flash will not pop up, no shutter noise, no auto focus.

I have a four year old Canon S1-IS that worked fine as recently as two weeks ago. I tried to take a photo with it last Friday and all I can see in wither the viewfinder or the display is a very garbled screen with horizontal stripes, that seem to change colors. The display mode DOES display images from the Compact Flash card in good shape. Any suggestions? Bruce Vincent [email protected] 281-379-4596

A friend had stored some pictures on her PC but had deleted them from her Panasonic Lumix compact camera. She wanted me to copy them back to the camera card.
