Having problems with your Olympus Digital Cameras ?

Not really sure if this is a problem? I have an Olympus E-500 and E-510. When I changes settings on the E-500 (ISO, White Balance, Auto-Focus Mode etc.) it remembers them when I switch it off. The E-510 doesn't. Is it supposed to work this way or is there an obscure setting I need to change? It remembers the time and date and the quelity settings ok. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.


Answers :

If you are shooting in the Auto mode and make the changes when power the camera off it will reset back to factory defaults. If you change the dial to P mode, make those same adjustments and power the camera off and then on again it should maintain those settings. Auto just uses the factory defaulted settings.

Now the problem is I feel some delay time while I am shooting.. I am not able to grab the scene which I suppose to take. Once I pressed click button.. it takes some time to get flash/photo. Please clarify what would be the reason... Is there any setting needs to be done in my camera .. or its a camera issue.

Relatively new canon eos 60d. Was taking multiple pictures in a group setting. Received an error that the lens and the camera were not connected well (I receive this from time to time, need to buy a newer lens). Usually, I just turn the camera off and then back on and it works fine. This time, the view through the viewfinder is very dark and it will take no pictures of any kind. Tried everything I know- no luck.

I have had my S9600 for 4 years, for most of that time, when i changed the batteries, all my settings remained the same. Now, when i change the batteries, every setting has returned to factory standard (stupid beeps and whirring noises, no date etc) and i have to reset everything. The user manual has no mention of an internal battery, but i figure there must be one and it now needs replacing. How do I do this?


My camera has refused to power up despite fresh batteries - I have had no response. I left it overnight as suggested in the manual - but still nothing. It hasn't been used for a few months and was left without batteries for fear of leaking. Any ideas ... Fuji Finepix S9600 Digital Camera
