Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?
How can i take close up photos with my A70
\015 How can I get sharp focus of very close up objects? (specifically, the silversmith marks on the back of a silver tea service)\015
Use close-up mode and place the camera on a tripod or solid surface to prevent blur from moving. Tilt the items so the flash (if you use one) will bounce away from the camera. Try using no flash with diffuse lighting or lighting at an angle to show the marks. Close-up mode is usually denoted by an icon that looks like a flower or tulip. Usually you can get as close as 6 or 7 inches and zoom-in in that mode.

Blurry/strippy photos I just got to Bilbao in Spain doing a photographic research project but every time and try and take a photo and view it comes out strippy with lots of little lines really close together and interspersed with a couple of fat ones too!! I've taken it to some photo shops today but there is apparently no camera repair places as such in the whole city! My spanish isn't the best but some of the assistants seemed to think it's the focus.

My kids accidentally dropped my Panazonic Lumix TZ-10 on the floor (not from a great height). The lens at that moment could only half close, but after turning power on and off a few times, now it opens and closes as normal. I can still view photos HOWEVER I cannot take new photos, the screen is black and the photos turn out black. I looked into the lens as it took the photo and there is no movement in there. The camera is still under warranty.
The warranty is unlikely to cover accidental damage but you could check if you have any insurance cover, perhaps in house contents or travel, or you might ask the retailer if he would help under 'goodwill'. It sounds as if the lens extension mechanis ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera

This problem may happen due to sticky shutters. when a camera is left non operative for a long time sometimes the the shutter gets stuck due to some sticks substance between the blades. BUT you specified thet it's not taking OUTDOOR PICTURES that ... Fuji FinePix F10 Digital Camera
MY camera seems to be overexposing all pictures taken , so that I can not take outdoor photos at all and can only take photos inside if I close the drapes and block all natural daylight. It seems as if perhaps a settings button has been accidently hit or something...NOT SURE but I do not see how to fix it.
Hello, the problem that you explain could easily be caused by an improper "ISO" setting. When you go to your camera's menu, look for the ISO setting and put it back on "auto". It's probably on 800 or higher now, which will cause everything to be ove ... Kodak EasyShare Z612 Digital Camera

Missing shots I have a Coolpix L18/L16 Nikon and I am missing all of my pictures. I take them but by the time the shot goes through the picture is lost. It continually results in pictures where my daughter's eyes are closed. What can I do? I am guessing that some setting is off which makes it take too long to snap the photo.
Your camera works fine, but they made it like this, so you should push the button all the way down, not half way, because when you push half way, the camera focus on the target, and the little lasers flash, but that is no shoot... on the other hand, ... Nikon COOLPIX L18 Digital Camera

When i press the shutter button to take a photo the shutter goes up and the power goes down. i have to remove the battery (sometimes wait a few seconds) reinsert it and then the shutter closes. It does not take the picture obviously and when trying to view (pressing the play button) it tells me that it can not create a folder.
If your camera battery is having limited current factor, there is a possibility that the entire action is not happening with the available voltage/current. as multimeter test of voltage might indicate the voltage but the current factor will need a se ... Digital Cameras
Blurry photos I love my A80. I know it's best to use a tripod to avoid camera shake but I can't always use a tripod when taking photos of my active toddler. I like to do close ups of her face and her playing but pics of her are blurry and this is a disappointment. What setting do you recommend?
Automatic "Portrait" mode would work best for what you describe. It's the setting showing the profile of a woman on your mode dial. Try it both with and without flash (press the "lightning bolt" button on the back of your camera). ... Canon PowerShot A80 Digital Camera

Now when I take a photo under any setting (auto P M etc) with my old faithful Cannon Powershot A70 it just gives me a white picture.
