Having problems with your Jazz DV-179 Digital Camera ?

False Advertising I'll Say like most others , This camera is a DV 179 says so on the box as well as the camera - I honestly cheched to see if it was mispackaged as another model because its not at all what it claims to be - There is No webcam so stop looking for it , As for the video - Avi Format instead of Mpeg 4 as it claims to be, The Stills are 5 MP. not 11MP. - and thats @ the highest resolution I guess I wasn't expecting much I got it on sale for $100 reg $250 but I Didn't even get the sam


Answers :

If you look at the outside of the LCD screen it should say the model number. You can use it as a webcam via msn messenger as I have used it before. You need to read the instruction manual in order to get it to work. It was a bit confusing to configure at first but it does work. As for the avi format, it will convert to the default that is based on your computer. For example if you use windows media player which for the most part defaults to avi format then that is what you will recieve. Using the software that came with the digital recorder will provide you with the necessary means to convert your videos to the mpeg4 format. As for the mega pixals, I know that the newer models that are now available have the 11 mega pixals.

Resolution I have a Canon Rebel XTI. Here is my problem. I took some senior pictures and then downloaded them onto my computer so that I could order them from my lab. The largest size that I could order was a 5x7 because of the resolution. What am I doing wrong. I have my camera set for the highest setting and I am using full auto. Can you tell me what may be affecting the resolution?


I suspect that what you have done is upload the thumbnails to the lab and not the actual picture.(check the sizes in kb) As fertobar says even at the lowest resolution setting the 400d is more than capable of printing out decent 5x7s. ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera

Broken screen I had the camera in my pocket and I bumped into a bench as I was walking by and the screen on the camera no longer works, it lights up, but only shows up white, It still takes a good picture, cause when I view my camera card, the pictures are there, Only I can't see anything on the screen when I take the picture, So I have to guess when I shoot a picture, Can I replace the screen myself? Where can I buy one? and is it fixable?

I have a Fuji S1000FP and for the most part it takes great photos EXCEPT when I take pictures into the sun then my photos are either white or black and no image. I will admit I just want a point and shoot camera because I don't understand shutter speed and such. However, I have attempted to change the shutter speeds and still nothing. I have tried all the pre settings as well. (This camera claims to be one of the better outdoor cameras. ) Can anyone offer words of wisdom on this. Ruth


Hi\015\012\015\012You should never take photos with any camera pointing towards the sun. It does not matter what advanced lense it has or what advanced settings - if you take photos into the sun you will get bad results. ... Fuji Digital Cameras

I need to check and see when I bought my camera at walmart and see if it is still under warrenty. Thanks!!

Dpi issue In the f-Mode menu I have set my camera to the highest available quality, ie: 6Mf. However, when I open the pictures on my PC (in any of the proprietary imaging software), it shows as having a resolution of only 72 dpi.

I was taking pictures, but paused for a moment to find a better angle. I guess I got distracted for a few minutes. I went back to the camera to see that the screen was black. I thought it had turned itself off, but the lens was still out. I didn't pay much attention to it and went to turn it on. However it won't turn on and the lens is still out. I've put it on charge just now to see if that will help but I was wondering if this happened to anyone else, or just me?


Hi. Yes, that happened to me once. Battery went dead and doesn't have enough power left to retract the lens. Camera worked fine after I put in charged battery. I hope this is your case too. ... Digital Cameras

Hello, I have a Fuji FinePix 4700 Zoom Digital Camera. Recently the display stopped working and to have that repaired I guess will cost more than the camera is actually worth now.

Pictures Deleted My son got a hold of my camera and deleted the picture, how he did it or what he pressed not sure. I have taking the XD card to a photo shop, for them to try and recover the picutes. They said there was no folder at all and they couldn't recover anything (claiming it was really weird). Is there something I could still try and do with the camera to get the pictures back.
