Having problems with your Samsung Digimax S630 Digital Camera ?

Batter Life We purchased a Samsung S630 camera from you a while ago, but have found that alkaline AA 1.5v batteries only last a few photos before they run down. We're therefore wondering whether you have any suggestions on which type/make of battery is best to use with this model, or is there any other way of avoiding this?

Answers :

This isn't a solution but is a confirmation. Battery life in this camera is terrrible, especially with alkaline batteries. The rechargable NiMh batteries do better, but even there life is substandard. When setting up the camera on the munus, you have to choose a setting for either alkaline or NiMh batteries. This seems to have some effect.
\015\012I have found that with new alkalines, the camera will even shut down so fast that it leaves the lens extended. The only I could find to get the lens back in was to put in freshly recharged NiMh batteries, and then push the power button to close. Then the camera was back to its voracious "normal."
How can I extend my digital camera’s battery life and save money?

Avoid the three main power drains in a digital camera: power cycling, unnecessary flash, and excessive LCD (liquid-crystal display) use. A camera uses power each time it initializes or shuts down, so avoid cycling the camera on and off between shots; you should only turn the camera off when you finish taking pictures.
\015\012Also, because it takes energy to use a flash, turn this component off in daylight or high-light areas. Even if your camera doesn’t fire the flash, it takes energy to keep the flash charged.
\015\012In addition, the color LCDs used on digital cameras can demand a lot of power (especially if the camera is left on for a prolonged period), so turn off the LCD and use the optical viewfinder rather than the LCD to frame the snapshot. Plus, make sure you only use the LCD sparingly to review your snapshots.
\015\012If you haven’t purchased a camera yet, choose one that uses common (low-cost) alkaline batteries rather than the more expensive lithium cells. Most cameras that operate on AA or AAA batteries also will accept rechargeable batteries, which may cost more initially but can easily pay for themselves in the long run. Of course, always refer to a camera’s manual for specific operating suggestions and precautions.

I'm looking at buying a Canon EOS 400d and wonder if anyont can confirm whether my lens from old Canon EOS 620 film camera body will be compatible. (Unfortunately lens in storage at moment so I can't quote model numbers, but one is Canon 50 mm ultrasonic lens and other is a (I think) sigma 28 to 200 mm)

My Nikon D70 DSLR was fine when last used but after around three weeks when brought out to use again, the LED which signifies writing to the card is flashing - whether the power is on or off. Removing the CF card and reinserting it makes no difference. While this light is flashing the camera will not switch on or show any information in the LCD. It is about three years old and has been faultless until now. Any suggestions?

FinePix 2300 I am wondering how good the Macro is on this model. My father-in-law received the 2300 for Fathers Day and he wants to be able to take close up photos of jewelry and rocks with good resolution. The jewelry is any where from Penny size to necklace size and the rocks range in size, but the small ones is what I am concerned about. Any suggestions what model might be better for this type of work if the 2300 will not work would be much appreciated.

Battery? My sister got my Sony Cybershot wet...not submerged or anything...just wet. At first I thought it was broken b/c it would not turn on but I plugged it into the wall charger and it turns on just fine and takes pictures and everything..but the second you disconnect the wall charger from the camera it turns off...no juice at all. I'm wondering if I should waste money on a battery or just buy a new camera. Any suggestions? Could it possibly just be the battery?

Won't Focus I have had my Canon Powershot SD1000 for about 9 months now. I have had problems with the lens error and it getting stuck but have always been able to get it to work eventually. I had another bout with the lens getting stuck, was able to get it unstuck but now it won't focus at all. Normally I press the shutter down half way to get it to focus on my subject, but now it simply won't focus. I'm wondering if maybe my settings are off, or if it's an internal problem.
