Having problems with your Olympus Stylus 800 / ? 800 Digital Camera ?

Olympus E520 digital slr. Only auto setting is working? On other settings, live-view goes dark(?).


Answers :

SLR cameras are meant to be used with the viewfinder, not live view. Live View on SLR's is a luxury that point and shoot users have come to expect, sadly. I suggest you start using the viewfinder and disregard the live view altogether, since it doesn't always give you an accurate representation of what the photo will turn out like, and it consumes battery power at a ridiculous rate.

My Canon EOS Rebel XS digital camera has suddenly stopped taking pictures. It will not focus even though it is on the auto focus setting. The first set of numbers are flashing and there is a flashing dot behind the ISO 800. It was working fine when I used it one time and then the next time it wouldn't. I can view pictures, but cannot take them on any setting except A-DEP and it's not focused even then. Please Help!

I am having a problem with my camera. It works in the sense that it turns on and takes pictures. However, the both the digital lcd display and normal finder display remain black, even after removing the lens cap. I let a friend borrow it a little while ago and I suspect they may have changed some settings, but I'm not sure what to look for to fix it. When it takes pictures, they come out looking very distorted and strange. But, it does take pictures, the flash goes off and a picture records. c

No image Hi, My DSC-F717 has been sitting unused for 2 months, but in safe place. When I turn it on now, everything works perfectly except there is no image in either the view finder or the display screen, almost as if the lense cap was on! All of the settings are sown in on the display but other than that the screen is black. When I try to film something it's the same, I get sound but but just a black image.

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.
