CAMERA IS THREE MONTHS OLD. ON MY LAST OUTING I NOTICED A PERFECT CIRCLE SPOT ONLY IN SHOTS OF THE SKY. THE SPOT IS IN THE IDENTICAL PLACE ON ALL SKY SHOT PHOTOS NO MATTER WHAT FOCAL LENGHT IS USED. THE LENSE IS CLEAN AT BOTH ENDS. I CHECKED MY PHOTOS WHEN I ORIGINALLY GOT THIS CAMERA AND THERE IS NO ROUND SPOTS ANYWHERE. THE SPOT IS IN THE UPPER LEFT HAND CORNER OF ANY SHOT WHERE THERE ARE CLOUDS OR SKY. FLASH PICTURES, INTERIOR PICTURES AND THE LIKE, THERE IS NO SPOT. PLEASE HELP...RICHIE


If you have another lens, switch it and take some shots of the sky. If the spot is gone, it probably was the lens that needs cleaning/servicing. However, it's more likely that there's dirt on your CCD. On your camera's menu, select mirror lockup/cl ... Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera with 28-135mm lens

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 D70 DSLR was fine when last used but after around three weeks when brought out to use again, the LED which signifies writing to the card is flashing - whether the power is on or off. Removing the CF card and reinserting it makes no difference. While this light is flashing the camera will not switch on or show any information in the LCD. It is about three years old and has been faultless until now. Any suggestions?

I have a Minolta Maxxum 7000i with a 3200i flash unit. The flash is not working. The batteries are fresh and inserted properly. The control lights on the flash unit light up when I am ready to shoot but the flash does not fire. I have the camera in "P" mode and the flash is turned on. Can you help?


Can you fire the flash manually? there might be a red button on the flash for you to do this. If you can operate the flash manually, then take an eraser and clean the contacts on both the camera, and flash, then take a Q tip, and a little rubbing ... Digital Cameras

When I use my Metz CT45 flash gun I get an error message on my EOS 10D and have to switch off to return to normal function. The problem has got worse recently. A couple of years ago I took about 40 pictures using the flash gun and got no problem. Do I need some sort of attenuator in the flash lead? Hope you can help Norman Rushworth

I am using an Olympus E-500. and am trying to use the built in flash, set to one eight or to one sixty fourth of normal output, to trigger an external flash unit. The camera is set to "Vivid", manual, auto focus, and iso 100. From the "manual flash" menu I should be able to select either full, 1/4. 1/16 or 1/64 of the output. However, those choices never light up. I keep cycling through the first two lines of the menu and never reach the third line with the light output options I want. P

I have a Nikon D300. I can't seem to figure out what's wrong, I assume it's a setting issue. In low light situations even with the flash I can't seem to stop action or even properly light things. I have had any kind of issue like this on a camera before. In situations where I should be able to handhold I am using a monopod. I know there is enough light to not have to handhold, I mean I am using the flash. Frankly even with available light this should not be an issue.

Close-up picture Hi! I purchased my camera to take up close-up pictures of handmade greeting cards. The cards are 4" x 5 1/2" with lots of little details. I'd like to show as much detail as possble. I'm not sure what the best setting are? I've tried using the flash, but the whole picture just glares out, the light bounces off of the card and makes a big glare in the center. Without the flash, the picture is too dark. Can you help me figure out the best setting to use? Or, what kind of lighting

I have a Nikon E5400, ver 1.3. I bought a 4GB Kingston CF card; the package said "formatted and ready to use". On inserting into camera, the message flashed that the card is not formatted. So I proceeded to format. The next message that flashes is "Out of Memory". Questions: 1) is the CF card defective? 2) is E5400 incapable of reading a 4GB CF card, should we use only CF cards <1GB? 3) Will a firmware version upgrade to v1.4 help? 4) Any other reason why this could happen?


It cannot use a card larger than 2GB. Format the card in the camera. Insert it into a card reader and change the partition side to slightly under 2GB. The problem is FAT16 does not support more than 64K sectors of size 32K. ... Nikon Coolpix 5400 Digital Camera

Focus failure Hi. I hope you can help. I've a canon 40D and am using it remotely with the EOS utility v 2.3. I am only able to take an image when the live view mode is active. When inactive and I use either the shoot button or the timer, an error flashes up "focus failure". The camera focuses fine in live mode. Have dragged my way through the instruction manual and cannot find a troubleshooting section covering this problem. Hope you can help. Thanks Joe

I cannot turn the flash back on. When I push on the lightning bolt button nothing happens, the display shows the flash turned off. Is something wrong with the camera. I have not had it that long and just use the IA mode and I know it worked before; can I reset the camera back to factory settings? I tried all the other modes and was able to use in in C1 but then I was messing around with that and now won't work in that either. Thank you for your help.
