Flash I there a way i can program the camera to take perfect pics without manually adjusting flash. All i need is to shoot at the object and get a clear pics. With this minolta i have to test several shots while adjusting the flash to appropriate exposures before I get a good pic.
What's perfect to you may not be perfect to someone else, That is why this pro grade camera offers so much in the way of adjustments. One doesn't often GET the perfect picture. More often, one must CREATE the perfect picture.. \015\012\01 ... Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D / Dynax 7D Digital Camera

Try Shutter Priority mode (Tv). Adjust the shutter time for an extended shot of several seconds or more. Of course, recommend using a tripod to do this, and using the camera's timer to take the shot to minimize camera shake. ... Canon PowerShot SX100 IS Digital Camera

I have a cannon rebel xs EOS first I want to get it back to Factory settings how do I do that and secondly when I want to take a pic say at a concert without the flash they turn blurry but if I use the flash then it turns out great
In the setup menu, scroll to "reset" and follow the instructions. Second, when taking pictures at a concert without flash, you need either a tripod (probably not practical) or a monopod (that's what I use). Also, a camera with anti-shake control woul ... Digital Cameras
Christmas lights I want to take a picture of the Christmas lights on our house at night. How should I set my camera to get the best picture of this? Can I get a good picture without using the flash? I'd rather not use it since it will diminish the effect of the lights at night.

My camera worked very recently, as I took pictures on a camping trip. However, a few days later after getting back, I've found that it refuses to turn on. If I turn it to either Video or Photo, the light turns green, but then immediately flashes red several times and shuts off. I've tried different batteries, with and without several SD cards, and nothing works... How do I fix it?
Here are the steps for the no power problem: 1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. Please use lithium batteries Ni-Mh or rechargeable Batteries (2000 M.Amp or higher). 2. Clean the battery contacts. ... Kodak EasyShare CX6200 Digital Camera
Hello, I have been given a very old model of this camera for use in a workshop with street children. The screen is out of focus and all the pictures come out blurry. When I look at the screen without any pictures on it looks like grainy like it is a really bad resolution. Is the camera just too old? It also gives off smoke when the flash goes off! If possible could you get back to me asap. Many thanks, Kate

I have a Canon 5D and a 430EX flash. When shooting pictures my flash will delay way to long before I can shoot another picture with flash. One picture is good and 3 are dark. My flash card is a CompactFlash 4GB Hi-speed 40 so I dont understand why it take so long for the flash to go off between shots. Giving an example of time, during a wedding the bride and grooms walks out "good shot" then the rest of the party with about 5 pews between them and I cannot get the whole wedding because the flash
The 430ex flash is E-TTL, that means it adapts is power to the scene. If you shoot a scene at 10 meters, the flash will choose to flash at the max power, and will take time to recharg. Try to get closer to your subject, and remember that the flash ca ... Canon EOS-5D Digital Camera

Make sure you have your flash & timing set where it is supposed to be, usually between 120 & 180. This is the shutter timing and flash duration. It is the syncronizing speed setting. If possible, turn off the automatic review, this slows ... Canon EOS-5D Digital Camera
Canon sd900 I seldom use my canon sd900 and I usually take pictures without using the flash. But I recently noticed that my hands should be very very steady, just a slight movement will cause the picture to be blurry or unclear. I usually don?t use the flash because it gives a darker background with your face too white from the flash. And my problem arises when I would request other people to take my picture because 90% don?t have a steady hand thus giving me a blurry picture.
Try a higher ISO speed (suggest 400). Look in your camera's instruction book to find out how to do this. ... Digital Cameras
Nikon D60. When viewing pics I get a section of the display that flashes on and off. I have no idea what's happened and I can't get back to viewing pics without the annoying flashing, it flashes black and white.
You're seeing blown-out highlights. These are the portions of your picture that have been overexposed so much that they've gone pure white and lost all detail. This is generally considered a bad thing, and the camera is warning you so. Of course, the ... Nikon D60 Digital Camera

I have a Nikon D5000 and my daughter is a competitive cheerleader and every competition the lighting is always dark and on the stage is really bright. My problem is i can't seem to get good pictures with my camera and i have tried all different kinds of modes. she turns out blurry all together are parts of her body will be blurry. What do i do to get a crisp picture of my daughter in action in these situations?
Photographing in low-light situations is always problematical. I'm going to assume you can't add more light, and go on to other things.\012\012\012The blurring is caused by subject motion. Because the light level is so low, the shutter ha ... Nikon Digital Cameras
E11 error. I purchased this camera used and can not get the camera to start. A indicator lite flashes green for a few seconds then red/yellow and shuts down. I have removed the flash memory card and reinserted without change. The batteries are fresh and it is connected to a charger. I am missing the cable to connect it to my computer but will get one and try to install an update to the drivers/firmware soon.
Error Code "E11" on Kodak Digital camera means that the battery needs replacement. If replacing the camera recommended battery AA 1.5 volt alkaline or AA 1.2 Ni-MH rechargeable battery still error "E11" the camera needed to be service. ... Kodak DC290 Zoom Digital Camera

I went on the flash settings and made sure it was set on Auto and then tried to take the picture again but no flash still.

Flash has stopped working on my Nikon D40. I've tried a factory reset, tried to get to the flash setting but that menu option is no longer available (highlighted) in any mode. I'm thinking it's broken and not a setting thing. Everything else works fine and it still takes pictures just without the flash. The flash pops up when needed but no flash obviously.
There's a common problem in the flash arm. I found this link that shows a simple repair. If you use this and make the repair yourself, understand that you will void your warranty if you have one. Also, do not touch the bulb as you'll get oil on it ... Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens
Flash issues My camera is brand new, I just bought it yesterday and it will only take pictures without flash. When I put the flash on, it will not take any pictures and it has a little red arrow, like the flash arrow, but its red and its flashing. Does this mean that the camera is no good.

The flash no longer works. In "auto" and in either the "auto flash" mode or "forced flash" mode no flash occurs. It is not in "suppressed flash" in the "portrait" screen position mode. The batteries are good. The shutter button is pressed after the charging is completed. The camera is not in "continuous shooting."

I am having problems with the flash working on my camera. It does not seem to matter if it is in automatic or manual modes. When I take a picture in either mode, when a flash is needed, the flash icon just blinks on the display. The camera will not take any photo when this is happening. The only way I can get my camera to take a photo is manually set the flash to off. Why is this happening?
Please reset camera through Reset option in Menu. This will set camera on default settings and any glitch in settings will be removed.Thanks. ... Canon PowerShot SD870 IS Digital Camera
I was taking photos over the weekend with my Olympus E-500 and the eyepiece viewfinder got darker than usual. I was using a promaster 5750DX flash. Even without the flash, the eyepiece viewfinder has remained dark. Also, I reset all settings to the default settings and now when the built in flash pops up, there are a series of three "beeps" and the camera tries to focus. I cannot get it to take a photo however. I also pushed the button for the sensor cleaning today. Could this have screwed u
