Focusing Problems I just bought the Canon 20d. I shot a wedding with it two weeks ago, and really liked how it performed in low light. However, I noticed a lot of my photos from the low lit reception came back out of focus. (The outdoor ceremony shots were fine). I noticed 3 issues with the images: 1-The main subject, which often was dead center and took up 1/2 to 2/3 of the frame, was often NOT in focus. Rather, the camera selected some point way off to one side or off in the distance som

Depending on how far away you are from the action, the flash is most probably not strong enough to be effective...in fact, it's probably making your camera underexpose every shot. Turn off the flash and turn up the ISO to 400 or even 800. ... Digital Cameras

We have a Canon Power Shot A570 IS, purchased October 30, 2007. We have purchased new AA-size NiMH batteries for it but the problem remains. Whenever you turn it on it shows "Batteries Low" and shuts itself off. You might be able to take 1 or 2 pictures before the batteries low light comes on. I understand that lithium batteries will not work in this camera. Please advise. Thanks, Eileen


Alkaline are the only batteries to use in digital cameras such as yours. If you still get the same results with either or batteries the capacitor is giving out in the circuitry. The cost to repair this camera outweighs the cost of a new camera ... Digital Cameras

Moire patterns A few months ago I decided to 'wet my toe' with digital photography and I bought very cheap Mustek GSmart Mini 2 digicam. As you might expect with a $60 camera the image quality is a bit limited due to the fixed focus lens, low resolution (1.3MP) and poor low light performance. Anyway, now that I can see the advantages of digital photography I'm planning on buying a decent camera e.g. Canon S230 to overcome the problems of the Mustek. One problem that the mustek has


The moire pattern is most likely due to poor lens resolution and a resolution that conflicts with the close pattern of the house design. By lowering the resolution. you are making the receptors "bigger" so they dont pick up the smallest details. if ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-H1 Digital Camera

Blue photos Can anyone tell me some reasons why some outdoor shots I took of snow/trees, etc. might look blueish? I took some pictures at sundown that came out fine, and ones I took about 10 minutes later look blue. I don't recall changing any settings. I also took similar shots at the same time with another digital camera and those looked fine. Is this something that's common in low light with a lot of white background? (Or is this a "user problem?")


Snow pictures tend to be blue due to the blue spectrum being scattered and reflected from the snow (similar to why the sky is blue). Plus just after sunset, you're going to get a cooler color temperature (blue cast).\015\012\015\012However, instead o ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ10 Digital Camera
