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

Could I use my Canon bounce flash (550EX) with this Olympus Digital camera?
That's not possible because the hot shoe is not provided for the Canon hot shoe. You can change some wires in the Canon flasunit to let it think is an Olympus model ;)\015\012\015\012regards,\015\012\015\012Rob ... Olympus Camedia E-10 Digital Camera
CF Light My camera was working fine, I turned it on this morning and snapped one picture, I noticed it did not show on the screen. The CF light is on and the number 252 is flashing in the little window. PLEASE tell me I just need a new card. I have used the same one for two years now and in about 30 countries, so my cam has been bounced around a bit. Thanks you so much. Q
If you have pics on the card, see if you can download them to computer, then go into the Menu and format the card. If the card is okay, that should correct the problem. If it's defective, it will tell you the card cannot be used. ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

Camera flash i generally use my camera on auto mode so i don't have to play around with buttons! however after loaning my camera to my sister for a week my flash is no longer as great as it was!! I used to take pics and the flash would light 2-3 times giving a great, bright picture. It now flashes once before the pic is snapped giving a dark picture. If i push the flash button on the left side of the scrolling circle it goes from red eye flash (which flashes once) to no flash! I'm almost certain

I have a Canon EOS 40D camera. We are having problems with using an external flash. The pictures always come out extremely dark with the external flash. The flash seems to work fine, it flashes brightly. The pictures look fine using the built in flash. The flash is a Promaster but we tried a Canon flash and it did the same thing. The camera store we bought the camera and the flash from says it looks like a synchronization issue and that it is a hardware problem with the boot. Their sugges

I have a canon rebel xti with an 18 to 55 lens .. I recently bought an external flash to sit in the hot shoe .. now when I removed the flash from the hot shoe .. the cameras own flash will not pop up and work... I can manually pop the flash but it still will not work.. I thought that when I bought the flash at the camera store the sales person turned off something on the camera for the new flash to work.. is there something I need to change in the menus to get the cameras own flash to work.....

I have a Canon 5D and a 430EX flash. When shooting pictures my flash will delay way to long before I can shoot another picture with flash. One picture is good and 3 are dark. My flash card is a CompactFlash 4GB Hi-speed 40 so I dont understand why it take so long for the flash to go off between shots.

I have a Panasonic DMC-TZ1 that I can't get the flash to go off on. The only flash setting that works on my camera is no flash setting and the icon for the no flash symbol appears white.

Flashes twice Is there any way of setting the flash not to flash twice, but just once?

Flash issue I have a flash issue with my three Moultrie D40 cameras. They all worked fine for about a year, then the flash strted to malfunction and right now the flash is present at about 1-3 times out of 200 pictures. It's the same for all cameras. I guess that it's either the flash itself or the "power component" (I don't know the name for this in english) that feeds the flash. Any knowledge or advices about this? Thanks /Stefan, Sweden
