Canon Sx120 IS camera will not zoom closeup from a tripod at 19" set at macro!!! Instructions say the camera cannot focus in the range of the yellow bar, well how do you get away from the yellow bar? Which will also result in removal of the macro setting! Any zooming to get closeup blurs out of focus no matter what I do and that's when still within the optical zoom range.

I bought the camera in the UK but I have since moved to Portugal and have only now had a chance to get the new camera out. This, I know, is my fault. But, nevertheless, I can't get it to work - the LCD monitor remains black when shooting whatever I do. It will take pictures via the optical viewfinder okay but I cannot get the screen to show. It works to display the settings etc but not for taking pictures so that when I press the display button it alternates between the photo settings (which
Canon models oddly do not support images on the LCD in every picture mode. Since the LCD works for settings, my guess is its in the wrong mode for the live view and its is not an issue with the camera's LCD.\015\012\015\012Here is a link to the ... Canon EOS 500D / Digital Rebel T1i Digital Camera

I have a Canon Power Shot SD990 digital camera. It takes great pictures except when I want to take a close up picture of an item I want to put on Ebay. I have read my manual, but can't seem to get the blur out of the pictures. They are okay, but not crisp like other pictures of subjects.

Blurry pictures I've had this camera for almost a year and everytime I want good pictures (vacation, birthdays, xmas) I'm disappointed with the quality of my pictures.

Some people say they keep their's on the auto setting, I find I need to keep mine on the nighttime setting to get decent pictures. Any sugggestions with settings, etc to hel

I just bought the olympus X-42 and it took pictures fine. Then I uploaded them onto my computer. After that I wanted to take more pictures and now it says, "Write Protected" I looked at the instructions on how to remove it, it says, "Use a computer to cancel the read-only setting." I don't know where that is.
This is almost always a setting with the "write protect" or "lock / unlock" tab on the SD or SDHC memory card itself - and is easily remedied. Remove the memory card from the camera if it isn't already, and look along the left edge of the card. Find ... Digital Cameras

I have a Nikon CoolPix 4300 that is about 5 years old. I mostly use it in the Macro mode for close-up photos of the sewing thimbles I sell on eBay.

It will come back on by itself, after a while, but I have to totally reset it to take only a few pictures, then it shuts off again. I have set the auto shut off to 30 minutes, but that didn't help.
