PICTURE TAKING Wonder if anyone can help me? Whenever I try to take a picture on my C-350 Zoom there is a long delay, of about 3 seconds, between me pressing the button and the flash operating to take the picture. This means I can never take any action shots and am even struggling to take family snapshots. I've checked this against other cameras and they only seem to take 1 to 1.5 seconds. I've looked through the operating manual and can't seem to find any solution. Any help would be greatly

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

On my Sony Cybershot DSC-P8 camera, the shutter will not operate when I press the shutter button to take a picture. Everything else seems to be working. This happened all of a sudden. The camera took about 8 pictures, then after turning it off for about 2 hours, it would not take any more pictures. This happens even after I push the reset button, take the battery in & out and the memory stick in & out. I have not had any problems with this camera until now.

Hi, I have just bought the Fuji JX530. When I take a picture I get a split second clicking sound coming from the lens before the flash goes and the picture is taken. The picture is fine and the mechanism moves smoothly when turned on/off and zoomed in/out. Is this just the normal operating sound of the lens or something else ??


When you press the button, the camera performs many functions in a split second such as set the focus, set the aperture and shutter speed, calculate the flash power, etc. It will make sounds and if the pictures are fine, then all is well. ... Digital Cameras

Downloading problem I bought a Nikon D80 in November of 2007 and it has been operating fine since. However today I tried to download some pictures onto my computer using Photoshop Elements 4.0. About half the pictures downloaded properly and the other half did not. A dialogue box indicated that the file may be damaged or in a form that cannot be supported by the organizer.

Faulty Lens? Sometimes when looking through the LCD screen the colours appear blended, overlapping and blotchy which makes it difficult to get a clear view of the item to be photographed. upon turning on (sliding open lense cover) screen view is distorted, "stretched", and item to be photographed is almost unidentifiable. Camera operates but pictures taken are "stretched" and distorted. However, stored pictures can be retrieved and are normal. Any advice?
