Having problems with your Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens ?

Wrong icon when selecting dynamic area

\015 According to the D40 Digitutor I should see, when selecting dynamic area in the AF area mode, an icon with brackets around the center point. With my D40 I get brackets around the point in the right (almost the same as in singular area mode). Is this normal?LouisBelgium\015

Answers :

The D40 Dynamic area focus starts on the centre AF area then moves the focus to follow the subject.
The camera has followed something to the right and selected the right focus area.
This is normal.

You could select Single Area in the menu and move the area back to the middle using the rear AF Sensor Selector.

Ive reinstalled the software for the GearHead 535i and extracted it from the zip folder however, when I go to the control panel and select add new hardware it prompts me to either search for software or manually select, I select the driver I installed from my files and click search/install but the installation wizard still says it cannot install my cam because no software was found. I need this to run, what do I do? whats wrong with it?

What I suspect is happening is this...the orginal Software was installed in a different folder/target than the zip files installed it. Control Panel may be looking in another location, even though you selected the driver. What I'm wondering is ... Digital Cameras

Hi, I have a Dimage 7i camera and I'm very new to it. Been taking pictures no problems but all of a sudden no matter how long I hold the shutter button a picture will not take. There is a hand icon in the lower left corner (shake icon? I'm very steady). Also a rectangle icon in bottom right which I didn't notice before. What might be wrong?! thanks

As you already know the shutter button has two parts or clicks to it. the first click will allow the lens to autofocus and automatically select the right exposure, and/or calculate shutter time for the picture. when you see the hand signal, it means ... Digital Cameras

Battery issue Hi, I've owned this camera for about 1 year. In the last couple of months the red battery icon will flash and the camera will shut down thinking it has dead batteries. The problem is, we may put in brand new batteries or fully charged re-chargable batteries and the icon is there right away. Does the mini battery inside need to replaced? If that isn't the problem then I have no idea what is wrong with thing......my last camera did the same thing (Fugi)

I have just bought a Nikon D70 body off Ebay (therefore didn't get a userguide) I am trying to charge up my battery which appears to work fine (the light shows up on the charger). When I put the battery in the camera, the battery icon flashes with only a 3rd of the battery icon full. Does this mean that there is something wrong with the charger/battery?

Can't dowload Help! I purchased a C2000Z one week ago. I loaded the Camedia 4.1 and the Adobe CD's onto my Pentium II computer. An icon for My Digital Camera comes up in the My Computer Window, but there is no selection for an OLY 2000 - the only Olympi choices were the 200 and 300. The computer tells me I have no connection, on either of my two serial ports at any speed (changed in the Camedia software and in Device Manager. Is the port or the cable defective, or have I goofed up in the loading

I would be concerned. First, the C2000Z is a very precision device. It came with a 41mm lens cap. If the extended lens bothers you, get the CLA-1 adapter, and cap it with a 43mm lens cap. I personally would not buy a demo digital camera. It goes thru ... Olympus Camedia C-2000 Zoom Digital Camera
