Having problems with your Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG9 Digital Camera ?
No external mic connection? isn't there a way to avoid the boomy room sound when narrating into the camera from a slight distance?

Camera "dead" Hi, all! I'm new not only in this site but also in photography/cameras domain so I hope you, all, will understand my ignorance in this domain. My problem is big enough so, with all my shame, here is my question: what if I've forgot my Nikon Coolpix 5600 connected to the computer all the night?!

Can I connect my camera to my PC with a USB cable and record sound from sites such as you tube while I film the screen to get both the audio and visual of a film clip. Right now i can do that by using the built in microphone in my camera and recording the sound thru the air, but the audio would be better if it recorded direct. If so, what settings do I need to make in my camera and PC?
This is a very roundabout way of recording from YouTube. There are many free utilities to capture YouTube or other website videos directly in your computer, without using a camera and getting the degradation involved. If you want the clip on your cam ... Sanyo VPC-T1060 Digital Camera

I have a GE 8.0 megapixel camera E840s. Have always been able to download pictures onto computer with no problems. Now after connecting to computer, my camera says "connecting" but doesn't do anything. Then I get a message about options and if I pick "import photos" it will then begin to import ALL photos which are already on the computer rather than the most current. We deleted many photos to make room, thinking this would help. What's my problem? Thanks.

I have 2 pentax optio m20 cameras purchased at the same time.
