Focus problems Hi, my camera is not focusing clearly. We just used it recently and can look at clear pictures on the display screen but now when we go to actually take a picture it's blury (on the display screen and if a picture is taken). I also notice that all these different setting menu's come up on the display screen when we are in take picture mode.

I bought this camera but don't know how to operate it. No clear instructions with it. Where can I find a manual? It has a memory card that inserts into the bottom of it. I turn the power on and take the picture but how do I save the picture. I am confused also because on what few instructions I have says it does not come with a memory card, so what kind of card did I insert into it? I also don't know how to save the pictures when I take a picture I can see it on the monitor but a pop up says

Grainy, image I bought my Riccoh Caplio GX 5.1 mp three years ago. At first it took the best pictures I could wish for, but for monyhs now I am getting very variable results. Some photos are OK, but many are grainy, "pixleated" - having tiny spots of the primary colours throughout the image. There doesn't seem to be any one situation when this happens. It can be inside, outside, flash or none. The pictures also seem to be a lot darker, so photos taken inside or at night are much poorer quality,
You might have changed the settings; ISO setting too high or something else, just reset it to factory settings if you can't figure out ISO. ... Ricoh Caplio GX Digital Camera

My Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ2 camera has a blurred display within 25 seconds of being turned on when in any mode other than playback. When the display blurs, it quite quickly becomes unviewable, and if I try to take a photo, an error message saying WRITE ERROR PLEASE CHECK THE CARD shows on the screen. The card seems fine and pictures I took before today all look good, both on the display and in a computer. Is there any fix, or do I need a new camera?
This is a problem with the camera lens and yes this can still be fix but you need to have it check on a service center but that price will not be cheap so if I may suggest it will be better to get a new camera..... ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ2 Digital Camera

Canon PowerShot A495 - Brand new. Used it once and took 40 photos. It then told me to change the batteries which I did.

I just received my Nikon D3100 in the mail today, and I was so excited. When I opened the lens cap on the camera body to put the lens on a small, clear-ish rectangle fell out.

It seems to shoot pictures fine, but some times it tells me the shot is to dark even though I am in full light. It also took black pictures the first few times and if I point it di

Whenever I take photos in shutter priority mode, all the pictures seem to be UNDEREXPOSED not overexposed like most people say it is. It also says LO where the f-stop number should be. PLEASE HELP!
Your shutter speed is too fast. The correct exposure requires a lens aperture larger than physically possible on the lens. That's what the "LO" is telling you. Slow down the shutter speed until the "LO" goes away. Alternatively, increase the ISO sens ... Nikon D3100 Digital Camera

My D90 sometimes has an err message and also a CHA in the the ISO mode. Also there is a green LED on the back of the camera that stays on. The only way to get all this cleared is a battery pull. When this happens it wont take a picture, you cant access the menu or anything.
CHA indicates a problem with the SD card. ERR indicates a camera malfunction. Try reformatting the card which may clear the problem or try a different card. The card may be creating the ERR message. On page 259 of the D-90 users manual, Nikon says th ... Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-105mm lens
