I own cannon G9. I fail to get good sharp open outdoor pictures at night especially in place not well lighted. Do I all the time have to take pictures Manually to get sharp pictures as we do with focus adjustment in other camera ? I am not happy with keeping adjustment on night mode. Where can I read the correct programming of Apperature speed iso etc to take better pictures. Or can you suggest custom setting for outdoor and indoor night pictures thanks hoshangnekoo

I have a rebel xt 350D , using 75-300mm 5.6f lens to do some girls basketball photography inside a gym. Had camera set on: ISO 1600, M mode, 5.6f, 200 shutter speed (that seem to set automatically), used built in flash, Exposure level was in the middle of the chart, auto focus, al servo, continuous shooting, used awb. Got pretty good freeze action shots, with little or no blurring but the photos were dark. Some I could make lighter with photoshop but lost some detail and the contrast was too muc

Unless you were up close and personal, the built-in flash was your problem. Anything past about 15 feet and your picture will be dark. You would have been better off turning the flash off and using available light. Once the flash is off, you can set ... Digital Cameras

Good Morning I went hiking in broad daylight this past weekend and the autofocus would not work. I have a Canon 40D with a TAmron 18-270. I used av, tv, p, m and auto and I could not autofocus the camera. All I could do is to switch to manual focus to get it to work. When the lens was set to AF all you could is hear is it racking back and forth tying to focus. VERY FRUSTRATING.. Any ideas of what it may be or a setting I might have set accidentally. Any help is appreciated. Bob

I can't seem to get my autofocus to work on my new Canon T1. The mode dial is switched to full auto, the fous mode switch is on AF, and the Image Stabilizer switch is in the "on" position. When I depress the shutter halfway, I get flash indication, some digital numbers, but no change in focus, no beeping, even though it is on and the focus confirmation light does not illuminate. I've searched through the manual to see what I am doing wrong, but can find nothing. Any help you can offer would

Hope I can help with some input to your problem. Let me suggest please that you switch the "mode" dial to "P" for program, check your ISO (I personally shoot ISO 100) and set it for a speed ISO 400 or lower. Most DSLR's use contrast to focus so a mir ... Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTI Digital Camera

Whenever I try to take a picture using "auto focus" option with my Nikon D40, (using the standard lens that came w/the camera), it makes a clicking sound and will not auto focus. But if I use it in manual mode it does not click. What could be the problem?

This camera focuses the lens by sending an electronic signal to it. If you hear a clicking sound, the lens is receiving the signal, but not responding. I suggest you take the camera & lens to a local photo store & ask if they could let you mount anot ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera

Dim Photos My G3 has begun to take very dim photos, all iso speeds are affected plus Auto mode. It can barely focus, even with the assist light on. If it was the light meter (setting too high an aperture?) it would probably be able to focus, right. When I take a picture it always sets f2.0 1/60 sec, even at iso400. Is it the image sensor?

Put the camera in to the full auto mode. If the pictures are still dark, it is possible that the apature inside of the lens is not working. There is a micro-motor, gear assembly, iris leaf assembly, and a servo amp circuit that drives the apature. Th ... Canon PowerShot G3 Digital Camera

Hello there, i have a tm700 from panasonic and it seems like the camcorder has some focus or depth of field issues, it always been working good until last week when i turned it on everything is out of focus, i tried geting focus back with auto focusand tried it with focus ring but it just seems impossible. only things that are focus are the things about an inch from the lense and i can get it focused if i zoom in a little... its odd because nothing really hapenned to the camera that could have

Inside the lens assembly, the focusing ring is controlled by electromagnets with feedback from the microprocessor and CCD sensor. Many things can effect the focusing circuit, but the most likely things would be any dirt, dust, or lint obstructing t ... Digital Cameras

DC-3185 Frozen A really odd problem is my son's DC3185 is frozen with a live LCD and the Flash in auto mode except the flash icon "flashes" I see a good LCD image of what I am looking at but can not take a picture. The led light is also red. I have installed new batteries and it didn't help. I inserted a flash card and the screen indicated the Flash icon but the flash keeps flashing on and off and the red led light stays on.

I have a Nikon D 3100 just new, and in video mode, the auto focus doesn't work!, i've tried to film in different light conditions, inside, outside, and the permanent focusing doesn't work.

This is to be expected. The D3100 does not autofocus in video mode. You can change the focus manually while filming but the camera won't do it for you.\012\012\012Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is. ... Digital Cameras

The flash has been working fine until last night when I tried to take a picture and the flash was set to auto. When I press the button the little red light beside the flash sign lights up, but the camera does not take the photo. When I set it to flash mode, it still won't take a photo. When I turn off the flash, then it does. What could be the problem? Is it in the settings?

If your batteries are weak, the flash will not have enough power to flash and will prevent a picture from being taken. ... Nikon Coolpix S210 Digital Camera

Overexposed picture when shot in Auto mode, in bright light picture comes as absolutely overexposed. In less light conditions, picture is good without flash but comes as overexposed again.

My guess is the the EV setting is on the + side and not neutral (0).\015\012Either that or Image Adjustment setting is wrong. Check EV by pressing\015\012the +/- button (right side near On/Off switch). Hold EV selector and\015\012make s ... Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera

Nikon D80 with a Sigma Lens (80 to 200 I think). In manual mode, often shutter won't release - this was a close up of a hummingbird with a fast shutter speed. Internal light meter showed underexposed, but the background was dark green. Initially, the shutter released, but later would not operate either with a remote, or by manually depressed the shutter release button. Switching back to auto, the camera seemed to work fine, but in this mode could not get the desired shutter speed. In full manual

In full manual, yes it should. ... Digital Cameras

When the Camera Is In Manual Mode, It will not Change Focus... I spin the wheel and nothing happens. Also i have just discovered in this mode, if i take a photo without the flash on, it will come out black, even with very good lighting, and when the flash is on, its still rather dark and its only the immediate area, (you can't see the background) What is going on???
