PowerShot A530 It takes digital images and transfers them via the memory card to the computer. The images all remain on the card and the computer.

I bought my camera Christmas Eve, and a new memory card Christmas Day. Yesterday, I tried turning the camera on and the lens opened and shut automatically and said Lens Error with a Large Red Exclamation point. I've come to the conclusion that it was because I hadn't formatted the new memory card with the camera and I'd already taken a few pictures with it.
