Sir,im a little bit confused on whats the best lens,that i have to buy?is it the nkkon 55-200mm,18-2000mm..my camera is D5000..im just a beginner in photography,and im more on point and shoot type..but i want to improve more,so im planning to buy a lens that i would not change lenses at a given situation.

I just got a new Kodak EasyShare M893 IS camera. I got it yesterday, for Christmas. And I tryed to turn it on this morning, but it would turn on, so I read through the instruction book. I plugged it up to an outlet and waiting for the green light to turn off, as the book told me, and then unplugged it. It still would not turn on, what do I do?

Recently had to ship my canon Digital RebelXS/ 1000 digital camera for repair. It would keep showing me an error 99 code. the camera is only 7 mths old. I'm just learning to use this camera..

MY Nikon D3000 was OK for five days' shooting in Paris. Then I removed the battery to charge it. When I placed the battery back, the camera would not turn on. I checked the battery on another camera and it had power. What could be wrong with my camera?

This sounds like you have a power pcb problem in the camera. If the battery works in another camera as you said then the problem is definitely in the camera. If the camera is less than one year old then I suggest you send in for warranty service to y ... Nikon Digital Cameras

What are the optimal settings for my digital camera? I have a brand new Canon PowerShot 12.1-Megapixel Digital ELPH camera, but I've been really disappointed in the quality of pictures it takes. For example, sometimes there are these smallish blurred white circles on the pictures. Can you recommend optimal settings that I should be using? I use my camera indoors and occasionally outdoors, so whatever settings best cover all different conditions would be ideal.

Small white circles usually means dust on the lens.  Remove the dust with a blowerbrush - not a tissue.\012You are asking for a "1 size fits all" solution for your settings, and indoor and outdoor use really means different settings.   ...

I just purchased an Olympus Stylus Tough-3000 (T3000).
