I have recently been on vacation. I checked photos on the LCD screen after a days shooting. All was well. I have now downloaded the pictures to my computer. Photos from the first several days are missing and perhaps others too, scattered through the remaining days. When I try to review the pictures again on the LCD screen I can see the pictures I was able to download but also many blank screens with "incompatible JPEG". What does this mean and is there a way to retrieve my missing pictures fro

I'm trying to shoot HDR photos using my XSi/450D. From the menu two I've set the AEB EV step range as 0, -2 and 2. From here, though, I don't know what to do. If I go directly from the menu to shooting, I don't get any automatic shots, but rather single, individual shots based on the current exposure settings. Help. I've scanned my 45D manual, DVD tutorial, etc. and cannot find my missing step to create a series of AEB shots. Many Thanks, Robert

My Nikon D40x won't auto-focus. When I press down the shutter button, it won't do anything at all. If I switch to manual and back to auto, it works for 2-3 shots, and stops working again. If change shooting modes from single to timer and back, it might work for a couple shots. I have not been able to find any other solutions. Any suggestions?

I have a Nikon D40x. Camera works fine, but sometimes it does not shoot a picture when shutter is depressed. It will just beep and shutter will not go. This very frustrating as I've lost many shots. Usually a re-framing/re-focus will fix it. Is there a setting to avoid this? Thanks.
There are a few factors that don't allow a camera to focus. If the lighting conditions are low the camera will have trouble due to the light level, especially when you are using a slow lens (with an aperture smaller than f3.5).\015\012\01 ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera

Battery Problem I have trouble with apparent battery failure due to bad contacts on the slide-out tray thingie that holds the batterys. Jamming it in several times when I change batteries sometimes helps, but often the camera will stop working in the middle of a shoot and indicate the battery is discharged. A quick in-and-out a couple of times of the thingie restores full battery power, but by then I've probably missed my picture. Anyone else have this problem? Other than that (and piss-poor aut

Exposure problem I have just purchased a Canon 40D. When shooting in Manual mode with an external flash, (photogenic) my exposure always looks correct thru the lcd but it always flashes -2 no matter what setting I have the camera on.

Hello, Just got back from Hawaii and took my Lumix Ts2 camera snorkeling every day. The first few days I had no problems, but the last half of my vacation, condensation covered the lens, and my pictures look like I'm shooting through a fog. The fog would dissippate after 45 minutes or so in the sun, but I missed many moments I would have liked to capture. The next day, I would go out and have the same problem. I worry that moisture is trapped inside the camera around the lens and no way to g
