Optical zoom problem in movie mode
\015 My optical zoom is not working in movie mode but it was working while i had bought the camera .\015
Your camera is not broken. That's by design. Canon cameras do not allow optical zoom use while in movie mode. Canon claims that using the optical zoom in movie mode would cause excessive noise in the movie. However, you can use digital zoom in movie mode. You'll need to go into the menus (press the menu button) and turn digital zoom "on" if it's currently off.

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. [This problem happens indoor

Hello, I have a problem with my camera (Samsung digimax L60). When it is on movie mode it is ok. The problem is when making pictures. The output (the picture made) has a lot of light and in the picture can be seen even the shadows of the objects within the frame (e.g. the shadow a cable, the person if it is moving etc). the fact that the short movies are fine when I replay them, makes me think that the camera itself it is not broken. And that there might be some mistake with the setup ... Can y

Focus There is one problem that I have with this camera - Auto Focus in low lighting and it has really limited manual focus. Outdoors this camera is outstanding, I haven't found any pitfalls outdoors yet. 10x optical zoom plus 2.5" LCD WOW. Although the LCD is littly choppy, but I don't care about that, pictures turn out really gooood. Anyways back to Auto Focus problem. Do any of you have the same problem? Or this is my ability problem? That limited manual focus really bugs me! I'd like to hear

Dead battery? I have been searching everywhere for help on this problem and so far, no luck! My camera will turn on but as soon as it does, it shuts itself off again. The lens is stuck in zoom mode and won't retract. I tried charging the battery but every time I try, it will only charge for about 5 minutes and then says the charge is full. Is this a problem with the battery? Charger? Or is the battery fine and it's a problem with the camera? Any suggestions?

Screen problems My Olympus FE-4000 12 MP digital camera with 4X wide angle optical zoom was working fine until one afternoon when I went to take a picture. The camera was never dropped into water, or exposed to heavy outdoor elements. The problem is that the screen in general has some white patches and two large black patches over it so you can only see a small part of the image. My question to you is, what seems to be the problem, and how can it be fixed? There is no damage to the outer surface
Maybe circuit contact resistance problem? Cheaper to buy another newer digital camera. ... Olympus FE-4000 Digital Camera

Canon Vixia HV30 - I have been reading a lot about it's much touted optical super zoom image stabilization but it either does not work the way it is supposed to or i am doing something wrong or it is another of those overhyped features that does not measure up to the real world scenarios. From the manual i understand that In auto mode - the image stabilization is always on. In Program AE mode, you can turn it on or off. I have tried it both ways but i don;t see any perceived difference in th
First of all, I'm inclined to agree with you, in the respect that their features are over-rated possibly, and hyped a bit. There are different types of image stabilization- mostly electrical and in this case, optical, per the specs. An optical s ... Digital Cameras

It turns on but won't take a picture when you push the button! I downloaded the pictures on the card because I was told maybe it wouldn't worked due to a full card.
