Having problems with your Olympus SP-560 UZ Digital Camera ?

When taking photos of moving items, sometimes it talkes a long time to expose and therefore I get pictures of the ground/sky etc


Answers :

Many cameras have a slow shutter release .. when you push the button you expect it to take a picture right away .. but the camera has to first adjust for focus and determine how much light is or will be available then set itself up .. this takes time but some newer cameras do it all very quickly .. one way to get around this is to first hold the shutter button down half way .. do this early just before your subjects are where you want them .. the camera will auto focus and set itself up .. keep the trigger in that half way position until the subject is in place .. now when you push the trigger the rest of the way down, there is very little lag ... make sure that you focus on something close to where your subject will be when they are in position .. .. another speed up trick is, if your camera has manual focus .. preset the focus for where you want it and that saves the time it takes to auto focus .. there are several digital camera reviews on the interent ..they will tell you how much shutter lag you can expect for different cameras .. that can be a great help when you are ready for a new camera or want to see where your present camera performs ..

I bought the camera in the UK but I have since moved to Portugal and have only now had a chance to get the new camera out. This, I know, is my fault. But, nevertheless, I can't get it to work - the LCD monitor remains black when shooting whatever I do. It will take pictures via the optical viewfinder okay but I cannot get the screen to show. It works to display the settings etc but not for taking pictures so that when I press the display button it alternates between the photo settings (which


Canon models oddly do not support images on the LCD in every picture mode. Since the LCD works for settings, my guess is its in the wrong mode for the live view and its is not an issue with the camera's LCD.\015\012\015\012Here is a link to the ... Canon EOS 500D / Digital Rebel T1i Digital Camera

Corrupted Pictures? There are times when I'll take a "long" photo (1200X1600 dimensions). The camera will take the picture. I will be able to view it on the camera.

When camera gets turned on, the lens goes in and out of focus a few times and then screen turns blue and displays "D : 5f08 5e02" and does not go back to shooting pictures again.

Missing shots I have a Coolpix L18/L16 Nikon and I am missing all of my pictures. I take them but by the time the shot goes through the picture is lost. It continually results in pictures where my daughter's eyes are closed. What can I do? I am guessing that some setting is off which makes it take too long to snap the photo.
