Camera shuts down after shutter button is pressed. It shuts down halfway through the shutter operation. Everything else works fine-reviewing pictures, settings in menu, focusing, exposure settings etc. The camera focuses ok when the shutter button is half pressed then when you press the shutter button fully, the mirror goes up, shutter appears to open then the camera shuts down with no power. Only way to get mirror etc back to normal is to remove the battery and refit. When camera is turned b

Nikon D80 with a Sigma Lens (80 to 200 I think). In manual mode, often shutter won't release - this was a close up of a hummingbird with a fast shutter speed. Internal light meter showed underexposed, but the background was dark green. Initially, the shutter released, but later would not operate either with a remote, or by manually depressed the shutter release button. Switching back to auto, the camera seemed to work fine, but in this mode could not get the desired shutter speed. In full manual

I have just bought a Lumix FZ18 camera (July 08). It worked perfectly on all settings at first, but has now developed an apparent fault in which it shows an overexposed image on all settings apart from automatic. When the shutter button is partially depressed, the image in the viewfinder or on the screen shows as normal, but when the shutter is activated it immediately reverts to over-exposed and the resulting image is the same. Can you advise please

When useing under water the shutter was so slow, when frameing a shot of a fish. By the time the shutter operated the fish was gone. can we lock the focus so it takes the picture quicker.
By pressing the shutter button half-way until the camera "beeps", you lock in the focus. However, underwater in a waterproof housing, I'm not sure you can hear the beep. ... SVP Acqua DC-1231 Digital Camera
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
On my Sony Cybershot DSC-P8 camera, the shutter will not operate when I press the shutter button to take a picture. Everything else seems to be working. This happened all of a sudden. The camera took about 8 pictures, then after turning it off for about 2 hours, it would not take any more pictures. This happens even after I push the reset button, take the battery in & out and the memory stick in & out. I have not had any problems with this camera until now.
Electronic switch under shutter button is defective and you need to replace it under following part number.. (please select part number according to cabinet color of your DSC-P8)1-477-770-11 SWITCH BLOCK, CONTROL (SILVER) 1-477-770- ... Digital Cameras

Focus camera will not focus, even sight screen is out of focus The camera will not focus. When switched on it beeps with a flashing green light near rthe view-finder and the lens housing extends. This repeats and the then the viewing screen goes blank. Pressing the AEL button will illuminate the viewing screen, but it is out of focus. Half depression of the shutter makes no difference. I had previously some intermittent operation of the zoom mechanism. The camera has not been dropped or jarred.
Your camera is having a problem positioning the lens unit, more than likely the cause is grit/dirt in mechanism, I recommend that you take the camera to a autorised service agent to have it stripped, cleaned and rebuilt. This is not really a repair t ... Olympus Camedia C-5060 Wide Zoom Digital Camera

On the Canon G3 I have issues with the main dial on the handgrip (used for aperture shutter speed and manual focus) while in Manual mode. it will change settings only some of the time! is this usually due to dust in the area and can it be cleaned or otherwise made operational?
