Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera ?

Can't download my pics or video connection error HELP!!!!!


\015 I purchased the vupoint DC-ST15R-VP camera. I can take pictures and video i think. But when i go to dwnld them it says that i have a connection problem. What is this and how do i fix the problem. Also, I noticed it will not take any pictures in low light it has to be very bright why is tha? Cuz that really sucks. The only reason i bought this is for my son to do his Science Project with about the moon. He couldnt take any pictures outside in the dark with it. I had to go out and buy a new camera just so he can take a pic of the moon. So far I have only had this camera for 4 days and I am very disappointed. I am really thinking about returning this because it has done nothing but cause a problem.\015

Answers :

Did u load the driver on your cpu.first of all, i am a photographer, film and now digital, mostly film. First of all i am not familar with this brand of camera, so i am guessing it probably is a low end consumer camera,no offense, just keep real,so i get right to the point,light change, each minute and every second, so ,in other words the less light the more time is required to make a picture.you will need a camera that allow you to have more control over it, i recommend a slr digital camera,but expect to pay any where from 400 to 3000 for one depending your style.
\015\012second of all i have some bad new, in photography, the two hard thing to photograph are fireworks and you guessit, the moon. your son will at least need to hold down the shutter(new slr ) at least anywhere from 1 to 2min, i know some moon shoot took long than that.unfortunely, the moon is just want of things that is hard to photo even for me. good luck and i hope i help
