Hi--I have a panasonic lumix DMC-FP8, which I bought in May 2010. The camera is great for outdoor landscapes, etc. but I've had problems with low lighting and red eye. The camera has trouble focusing on the subjects, and there are often white spots all over the picture (even though I've cleaned the lens and checked to see if there were scratches or dirt on it). In addition to this, I have the red eye setting on, but I still get really awful red eye in all of my pictures. The camera is still new

Red Eye I am having troubles with red eye all of a sudden. The red eye option is turned on but I still get bad red eye in my pictures. Any suggestions

If the red-eye reduction is turned on, and you can verify that the pre-flash is functioning, you may need to think about shooting technique. With ultra-compact cameras, the flash is necessarily placed close to the lens. This is the worst design possi ... Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera

Pentax Optio 555 Digital Camera. Once I have taken a couple of photos in a row, the camera continually flashes red & green. Like it is continually thinking. I cannot then even get the camera to shut down eithout removing the battery or just leaving it until it times itself out. If i remove the battery, I still have to turn it on & then off again to get the lense to retract. Can you help to solve this problem. It does it no matter what the charge in the battery is like. Full or half used.

Red Eye Both my wife and I have this camera. We have the red eye reduction function set but almost every indoor shot of people has red eye. I have been told that if this function is set properly it will flash twice quickly when taking a shot. Our cameras only flash once. Any suggestions?

Red-Eye Fix Are there any settings that will eliminate the red-eye problem with my Canon A520? My Minolta emits three distinct flashes prior to taking the picture when re-eye reduction is turned on.

My D40 does not shut off properly, and sometimes turns on by itself. It seems to be getting worse, and sometimes I can only get it to turn off by putting the on/off switch in between the two settings. Also, sometimes if the camera gets left on I have trouble taking pictures the next time I go to use it (even if the battery is still charged).

Obviously something is wrong with the on-off switch. I would have it serviced. ... Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens

SAME PROBLEM I didn't drop S60 or hit anything. When turn on the power, a motor vibration noise will be heard. Turn it off and turn it on again may get it work luckily.

There is anyone has same problem here? We may collect such information to claim Nikon to get our right!

I'm having a couple problems with my Nikon D90 and for the life of me that manual is too confusing, The first problem I'm having is....

My Fuji s2000 always shoots picture that are blured. I have tried many settings and different exposures however I keep getting the same result. What can I do ? The worst mode on this camera is the auto mode, I can never get a clear indoor picture. This camera takes beautiful pictures of flowers/nature and all outdoor photo's turn out beautiful it is the indoor photo's I have even tried the sports mode for when people move but I still get a very blured image
