I have a canon rebel xti. Some of my images are soft...not too soft, but a little. If I upgraded to canon 40 D slr, would my pictures be sharper, like around someones eyes, assuming I keep the lens, aperture settings, and shutter speed, and ISO the same? In other words,is an amateur photog. like myself going to be able to take better pictures with a different camera body...the 40 d vs. the rebel xti? thanks, dr john [email protected]

My nikon coolpix 800 isn't taking pictures. It takes them but... the shutter won't open. so i have a full 128mb cf card that is full of nothing but pictures of the back of the shutter.... i've read the manual ten times and i have not found an answer to my issue. can you explain what is going on, and if its possible to fix easily... and inexpensively.

I doubt there is an easy fix or a cheap one, the mechanism that opens the shutter may have broken or come loose, the only thing i can think of would be to shake it a little to see if things click into place. ... Nikon Coolpix 800 Digital Camera

Continuous shooting I'm new to this so bare with me. I just got my Nikon D60 and I want to shoot pictures in continuous mode. I set it on manual, go into the menu and change it to continuous. I rotate the dial so it changes the shutter speed but when I take pictures it's just a black screen. As a matter of fact any time I try to take a picture in M it's just black. I'm hoping that there is just a setting I need to change and there's not something wrong with my camera. Thanks.

Hey man. Im not sure how new you are but basically i think your problem is you need to decrease the shutter speed to around 1/200-1/250 of a second and increase the apeture to around f10/12 and see if that works. If your operating at a high shutter s ... Nikon D60 Digital Camera with 18-55mm lens

My Nikon D60 keeps freezing up. Sometimes when I go to take the picture it works fine and other times, it won't take the picture but if I hold down the button it will eventually take after a few seconds. I've more than likely switched a setting but I don't know which one and how to set it back to the default settings.

Overexposed photos?? when i hit my shutter release button, sometimes the flash doesn't pop up and the view finder goes black. (it's like the camera is taking a picture but when I release my finger from the shutter release button it doesn't release) The only way to "get out of it" is to turn the camera off then back on. when i go to playback...it is a white picture. are my settings messed up and how do i avoid this in the future. Many picture moments are missed because of this!

The view finder "going black" on an SLR is caused by the mirror being up, which is also when the camera is actually taking the picture! The mirror sends the light from the lens to either the viewfinder or the sensor. When it's down, the light goes ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

Shutter speed How can I change the shutter speed? When I go to take the picture, it takes 3 or 4 secrets. By then, I have lost the capture. Any help???????

What you are referring to is not the shutter speed, but it is how fast the system takes to lock in the focus and determine the exposure/quality/white balance of the scene, and in some cases if a flash is required, getting enough power into the buffer ... Samsung L200 Digital Camera

I have a Nikon D80 and the camera locks up and won't take a picture - the F keeps blinking and it won't lock into a f3.5 or whatever so you can take a pciture - why would this happen ?

Lumix DMC-FZ7 While keeping my camera out of view on the floor of my car on the drivers side I failed to remember it was there and moved the electric seat forward and heard this CRUNCH ! Don't even go there.. It appears the unit is working fine and still taking great pictures.

Hi i am using a Nikon N75 to take pictures for my photo class, and the instructor wants us to take low light indoor phtotos at a shutter speed of 1/30 at f2.2. However, when i go to set these settings in manual mode the camera will not let me set my aperture to 2.2 it usually stops at 4 and there is no way i can make it 2.2. i didn't know if there is a limitation on the camera but it seems like i should be able to select what i want.

It's probably a limitation of your lens. You didn't say what lens you're using, but one of the common kit lenses sold with the N75 only goes to f/3.3 at best. If you had a lens that opens up more, the camera will let you use it.The differ ... Nikon Digital Cameras
