Having problems with your Fuji FinePix A330 Digital Camera ?

Mind of it's own...

\015 My camera was working perfectly the other day, now almost every time I press the top button to take a picture it turns off. The batteries are brand new, the battery light isn't on, no warning lights are on, I just hit the button to snap a picture and it immediately turns off and the screen turns black and nothing I press will turn it back on unless I slide the lens cover on and off again. It happens 9 out of 10 times, then the tenth time I can take a picture without it shutting off. I can delete and view pictures, but the button triggers it to turn off for no apparent reason! How can I fix this?\015

\015\012I had exactly the same problem. Turned out it was my batteries!
\015\012When I use Philips Powerlife batteries I experience no problems whatsoever. Any other batteries don't seem to work as well. Apparently there are differences between the various AA-type batteries.

\015\012Lemme know if that solved your problem, please. t u r r e b o a t g m a i l d o t c o m

For my first generation GoPro camera, do I need a memory card with a class rating higher than a 2 to have better quality videos. Also my camera seems to have a mind of its own and shuts down after about 30 seconds of filming. Any suggestions?


A Class 6 memory card is required for recording HD quality video. Not sure if yours is HD or not. Anything lower than Class 6 (such as Class 4 or Class 2) will result in recording issues and possibly skipping some video here & there.\015\ ... GoPro Digital Hero 3 Digital Camera

I was in the middle of shooting a wedding, when suddenly my camera said that it was 'busy' - it was taking a while to go back to normal, so I decided to shut the camera off and just turn it back on again (I didn't mind loosing the last image). When I turned the camera back on... all of the sudden the shutter kept going off extremely fast (without me pressing the shutter button). I turned the camera back off, but the shutter kept going off. I freaked out and too the battery out to make it stop.

Canon SD750 The camera tells me there are "No Images". Yet, it also tells me that "The Memory Card" is full. I shot video just to see it, brand new camera using the 32mb card, and now, nothing. Can't shoot stills, anything, because it's full in its mind. I found the erase option. It's grayed out, meaning it's not at option because there's nothing to erase according to the camera. Any ideas. Is the stock card **** and this is Canon's way to upgrade?

This is a mind bender, While doing a shoot using monolights connected to a Nikon D1x I encountered exposure problems. After the lights were metered for the best exposure, I started shooting. The first ten or so shots were fine, and all of a sudden the next ten shots looked like they were 8 stops over, and then it went to looking ok. The first thing I did was switch monolights thinking there was a problem with the flash, this did not resolve the issue. Next I switched camera bodies, still the int

Am I loosing my mind?? My Nikon D80 no longer displays an image while I'm composing a picture. It definitely did..I was in the middle of composing and it just shut off. It displays in playback & after the picture is taken but no longer while composing. I've had this camera for over a year & use it frequently. I took it to a camera shop and they said the d80 does not show "live view" & I must be mistaking it for d90. I definitely have the d80.


You're not nuts. I saw a guy activate live view on the d80 while doing a demonstration on a Youtube tutorial. I just can't seem to find the video nor how to activate Live View on my camera. I think I'll try contacting Nikon directly ... Digital Cameras
