Answers :

Kim,
I feel your frustrations but, you haven't been specific with your problem(s) so I'm going to assume that would has happened or is happening is all to do with the memory card. Being a new camera to you, I'm thinking you may have just installed a memory card and started shooting with it. If this is the case then what you need to do is download any pictures you want to keep and then format the memory card in the camera. If formatting hasn't been done to the memory card then there is a whole host of problems that plague the camera right out of the box.

Vivitar web site is a bit of a challenge for me to get into to look at a manual but I'm sure there is a sequence of step explained on how to do this. Generally pretty simple and generally the formatting function is under "menu".

Hope this was a help

Not focusing I'm in the process of attempting to help my friend fix his DMC-FX9 camera. The problem is that it doesn't tend to focus on ANYTHING. It will focus if you zoom in [about halfway)or use macro, but it won't focus if it's not zoomed in. I tried changing the focusing modes, the photo modes. I don't know what else to do, has anyone else run into this problem? He's had the camera for to long to return it, so I'm hoping that I can help him make it usable again.

I have a Caonon 40D. I thought I was having a lens problem at first. However after using 2 other lenses I have found out it is my Camera. No matter how clear and crisp the image is in the view finder. After the photo is taken and loaded into PS4. The image is blurry and unsharp. I have reset all camera settings to factory with Canon. And I am still getting the same results. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.
