Shutter Lag-Time The shutter lag-time on this camera seems quite long to me. I have read the manual that came with the book as well as a "short course" book on the G6 and this isn't really mentioned. I am wondering if this is a problem unique to my camera or if others have noticed this. In "AUTO" mode it is the worst. Am I missing something, or is this just the way the camera operates?

The G5 has a rather short shutter lag and a rather lengthy focus lag. So if you half depress the shutter release to focus, and then moments later fully depress the shutter release I expect you will find very little lag. But I would not expect a prosu ... Canon PowerShot G6 Digital Camera

I took my camera to a photo developer to have pictures developed. I have been told that my camera screen is broken and others say I am using the wrong batteries. It was fine in others cameras so I don't think it is my card. I tried to return the camera to the store from which it was bought and was told they would not accept it. It was a present.

Try different batteries. Digital cameras need good high end batteries to work correctly. ... Digital Cameras

Pictures gone! I have aPowershot S400 camera. We took about 50 pictures on a LEXAR 12X 256MB flashcard. We are able to see and download the last 16 pictures we took(about 8MB). The others are nowhere to be found. Howerver, the memory card indicates that half the card is full. Is there anyway to retrieve the missing pictures???

Take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for. Recommend the last program listed on this page:\015\012\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot S400 / IXUS 400 Digital Camera

Fuji/USB Hi folks, Could any of you folk tell me if the Fuji cam will talk to Windows95 via the USB cable direct from the camera, or do I need to download via a card reader? Some chain stores say it will others say it will not! Many thanks.

Nikon D50 I have been reading through Fixya to try and find a similar problem. I have a Nikon D50 and have been using it with no problems for over a year.

Lens Problem I have a C-8080 and I like it but I'm not sure if it is working 100%. The lens barrel is sloppy from side to side and clunks slightly when moving it quickly. It has been that way since it was new. It has some issues with auto focus as well. It has a hard time focusing on clouds and soft objects at infinity. I called Olympus when I bought the camera and mentioned the sloppy lens barrel and they told me that that is the way there made. It is slow to focus when going from close objects

The lens play is normal. The focus is not the fastest, which is a shame because the camera powers up instantly! There are techniques to minimize the focus lag if you choose to keep the camera (e.g. hyperfocal; pre-focus w/manual focus lock). Its a gr ... Olympus Camedia C-8080 Wide Zoom Digital Camera
