Shutter lag: compare Sony DSV HX5V with Sony Alpha 55: "Do you NEED a new camera? If the Sony does what you you need it to do, then stay with it" -Most of the time my Sony is fine and I have learned to use it quickly with presetting of speed and auto-exposure. I sometimes photograph my girlfriend in a foreign setting, inobtrusively with my compact Sony without getting permission and can only take one or two shots, Like once in Cairo;s oldest mosque.

Have a Sony Alpha DSLR-A300K. Let a friend borrow it and she used USB to download the photos to her computer. Ever since she did that, the camera does not work: specifically, all the buttons don't do anything (shutter button, menu button, playback button, etc). Any ideas out there to try and and get this camera to act like its old self? Thanks! p.s. when I get my pictures off the camera, I just remove the card and insert it into my computer; I don't do the USB method she used.


Sounds like when she disconnected the USB cord, she didn't use the "safely remove hardware" function on her computer. You could try a reset from the menu if you could get into it. If not, try a manual reset...it sometimes works. Remove the card and b ... Sony Alpha DSLR-A300K w/ 18-70mm Lens Digital Camera

Poor focus I am using the Nikon d80 with a Sigma 24-70 mm lens. I am not satisfied with the crispness of the photos. I have tried shutter speeds of 1/500 and higher, using a tripod, and using shutter delay to get better clarity and sharp focus, but none has worked. The quality is not as good as my 2 meg Sony! Is this to be expected from the 10 meg cameras? thanks! [email protected]


Are you using a DX lens. Do you know if you have the camera's auto focus set to AF (auto focus) or M (manual)? There are many things that effect the focus and as an added note, any shots over 1/60 shutter speed in normal light should be in focus wi ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

I purchased a Sony cybershot DSC- S930 and inserted the Lexar memory stick (supposedly compatible with a sony camera) and upon turning the camera on there is an error message stating there is not internal memory (as the internal memory only has room for 2 photos).

I have a Sony DSC-H1 camera and have recently removed photos from it's memory card - the same way that I've always done it before without any troubles.

I've tried to go through the menu and reformat the memory stick but it didn't make any difference. What do I need to do to continue to use this memory stick?

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
