Having problems with your Olympus Digital Cameras ?

My videos are fuzzy with lines in them. Only when I film outdoors, which is what I am using the camera for. Any hints?

Answers :

\015\012 Its fairly massively over exposed, the vertical lines are a product of that.
\015\0124 things I can think of it may be, not knowing which camera you have..
\015\0121)the camera could be in night mode - switch to normal or outdoor
\015\0122)the exposure compensation is turned up - reduce the setting
\015\0123)the camera has crashed, remove main (and backup battery if it has one) and leave for a few hours (you will know if you left it long enough as the settings in the menu will return to default and the clock will reset) and/or check the manual for a reset/return to factory defaults option.
\015\0124) The aperture is stuck, this is a surprisingly common fault, in many situations it goes unnoticed as the camera will simply use a higher shutter speed to compensate but often the video modes have fewer shutter speeds available - There is some risk in this it depends how annoying the problem is, how attached you are to the camera (though I've cured many like this, and when suggested to others, many reports of sucsess) and if the warranty has expired.
\015\012 In video mode maybe outside or with a very bright light shining down the lens, using some thick carpet on a solid surface, give the camera a few sharp bangs against the side near the lens and bottom. What happens is if the camera has got damp at some point, maybe brought in from the cold outside to a warm house, condensation can build up in the lens, the aperture and shutter are made of PTFE film which is a very thin plastic and this can cause either to get stuck, causing under or over exposure or simply a black screen.
\015\012Beyond this it needs a service center

I have a problem with my sony cyber-shot dsc T-3. Everything is all right except that there is probably a problem with the lense as the image (on the screen when I want to take a photo or film) is not right (it is pink, dark with lines on it). It is not a problem with the screen, because I can look at my photos / videos which were done before this problem happened. I think it is because I tried to use the camera in a hospital (I had a baby last week) when I was in a surgery room. Maybe too magne

I need film for Model 800 Polaroid; I understand that the original film has not been available since 1990. I know that the camera can be converted to use pack film; does this mean that I could still use that camera AS A POLAROID? Many Thanks.

I have a nikon f65 camera and can't figure out how to put the film in it. I am used to using manual cameras with the film advance lever.

Just put the film cassette in as you did in your manual camera, pull the leader over toward the takeup spool, just to the red mark - no further. Then close the back and it'll wind automatically. If it doesn't, turn the power switch on-off-on. ... Nikon Digital Cameras

I found a Quantaray 55-52 mm step down ring (Manufacture # 241664614) on Wolf Camera's website that I am interested in purchasing, but want to make sure it would work for me. I have some close up lenses (Hoya) for my old Canon SLR film camera (55mm) and was hoping I could use those lenses on my newer Nikon DSLR (52mm) camera. Would the step down ring make it possible to attach and use my old camera's close up lenses on my new DSLR camera? Thanks, Jerry

No. The 55-52mm step-down ring will let you attach a 52mm attachment onto a lens with a 55mm thread. You want a 52-55mm step-up ring. ... Digital Cameras

I have an older (not digital) Canon EOS Rebel 2000 camera. I haven't used it for a couple of years and now when I went to use it I loaded the film. No problem.

I filmed 12 hours of footage (6 tapes) over two days using two different Canon XHA1 cameras in HD mode using Sony HD tapes. 4 of the tapes are fine but two of the tapes are not showing a timecode consistently and I cannot get them to read in the camera or a Sony playback deck. I also cannot get Final Cut Pro to read any footage off the tapes. This is a desperate situation as the two tapes in question have footage from an actual wedding ceremony on them.

Can I connect my camera to my PC with a USB cable and record sound from sites such as you tube while I film the screen to get both the audio and visual of a film clip. Right now i can do that by using the built in microphone in my camera and recording the sound thru the air, but the audio would be better if it recorded direct. If so, what settings do I need to make in my camera and PC?

This is a very roundabout way of recording from YouTube. There are many free utilities to capture YouTube or other website videos directly in your computer, without using a camera and getting the degradation involved. If you want the clip on your cam ... Sanyo VPC-T1060 Digital Camera

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 have a samsung digimax S600 camera. From not too long back i have been having problems with the image quality of pictures clicked in broad day light in the outdoor. There is no problem, however, indoors whatever the light condition. Also, if i shoot a video using the camera, even on the outdoors, i get satisfactory results (not any different from earlier). What could be the problem? Thanks.
