My mom gave me her sony cybershot dsc-s650 and said to transfer the pics to my PC to just use a regular camera cord. On my old camera I just put the cord in, turn on the camera and it downloads.

Harsh shadows we are trying to take pictures for a friend's small wedding - at the rehearsal today we practiced picture taking with both a Canon Rebel XSI (using both the regular lense and adding a telephoto lense) and a Canon PowerShot S5-IS. The problem is that we are getting a lot of pictures that have a 'hard' shadow on the people in them. It doesn't appear to be a regular shadow because it doesn't 'land' on the different surfaces behind them, but is more like a shadow attached to them. Any

Hello, I want to videoconference and I want to use any camera other than a standard webcam as regular webcams video resolution is not as superior as say camcorders. I have a JVC GZ-MG365 camcorder and after assistance from a fellow tech Eske, he informed me that it could not be used for videoconferencing.

I have had my Canon PowerShot A630 for several years and love it. However, lately the battery life has been very short (I use regular Akaline batteries.) Any advice about why this is happening would be great.

My 'PowerShot A1100 IS' is not responding anymore when i put fresh AA batteries in. As soon as I turn on the camera, it says battery low, and will not take pictures. I did not have this problem with it previously. I have owned this camera for about 2 months and this has started happening approx a couple of weeks ago. Could this camera be defective? I have not yet used lithium batteries, and the camera previously worked well on regular AA batteries.

I got my camera around January 2008 but I haven't gotten to use it for around a year and a half. This is the first time I can try to fix it due to costs and other problems. I think the camera is having CCD problems because I can't take pictures without them being black but I can see previous pictures just fine. I've heard that repairs for this sort of thing are expensive especially once the camera is out of warranty- with luck, mine happens to be out of warranty. How can I fix this? And if I wer

ERROR C-2 I've had my KD-300Z for 5 years and it's been great - reliable, easy to use etc (apart from the poor battery life!) I recharged the battery, put in a nnew SD card and took it on holiday. When I came to use it all that happened was a blue screen with the message ERROR C-2 which stayed on for about 4 seconds. This happens whichever function I switch on.The manual troubleshooting section only mentions ERROR-xx or ERROR-99. Any suggestions -please?

Batteries This camera has been the worst digital camera I have ever used.  The pic quality is fine.  The ease of use is fine.  The problem lies in the battery longevity.  Maybe that is not even the right description.  I will put in new batteries and only use my camera for a short time.  The next time I go to use the camera it is not at all uncommon for it to not turn on.  Even though it has new batteries and was not left on, the batteries are dead.  It happens with the rechargeable as well as re

Grainy Pictures I have had my olympus stylus 710 for about 6 months and have been noticing more and more grainy pictures once developed. They are usually when taken indoors. It doesn't look grainy on the LCD screen but when they are developed it is very grainy. This even happens when the flash is used. Any suggestions? Is there a setting I can change for higher quality pictures? I have a gig memory so I don't care if I am going to be using a lot of space. Got 7.1 megapixels and want to use

When I press the power button for my Olympus FE-190 to turn the camera on nothing happens. I haven't used it for a while so I initially thought that the battery might not have any charge. When I put the battery in the charger the charging light stays on for a few minutes and then goes out. I'm wondering if the battery needs replacing. I don't use the camera very often, have had it for a few years and, stupidly, have a tendancy to leave the battery in it when the camera is not in use.


Well, are your batteries in the right slots, and put in right position? Are the batteries used? Was your camera exposed to water? These might be reasons why this is happening to you. If this isn't a very good solution, I have more details, want them? ... Olympus FE-190 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.
