I have an Olympus E300 and I don't know what I did but when I turn on to take photos now the display shows "0" photos available to shoot even though I've essentially cleared all images off; and when I press the button to shoot it will not snap.

When taking photos with the camera set at the shutter priority, all the photos come out black. I have a lens with a f/2.8, but the on the screen on top the camera, the f reading is showing LO. I have taking photos for the last three weeks off our high school football games with the camera set up in shutter priority, iso at 1250 and my f/2.8. now for some reason the f reading is showing LO and all photos are black.

You mention everything except the shutter speed. When the aperture shows "Lo" it's saying that there isn't enough light at your selected shutters peed to produce a good exposure. That's why you have dark photos. You may need to bump the ISO up hi ... Nikon D300 Body Only Digital Camera

I can't find my photos. I was taking pictures and all of a sudden all the photo I took looked smaller on the screen and said unidentified image. I started playing with the settings and then I think I may have somehow put some of the photos into catagories. Now only a few of the photos show up when I press play. Also, when I took the chip out and put it in a developing station, the photos that said unidentified object didn't even show a picture on the screen. On the the camera screen some do

Nikon CoolPix S500 shows colored lines on lcd and in photos where the lights are bright. I have restored settings tried using it with no flash, soft flash, and auto flash and the problem continues. Noticed the lines on the lcd over a year ago and it has progressed to brightly lit photos also now. In some photos lighter colors also show up with the lines. ie. My daughters blonde hair in the light looks almost transparent with all the lines running through it. Is this a lens problem? Is there

I have a Pentax *ist DL2 camera, which I bought second hand on ebay, but from a very lovely, recommended seller, so he wasn't having me on.
