Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

There's a long delay from the time I push the button until the flash goes off and the picture actually takes. I miss the smiling child and get a turned head instead.



Answers :

Press the shutter button half-way and allow the camera to lock in the focus (it will beep) and when the moment is right, press the rest of the way.

Missing pictures I recently went on a trip and took some pictures that disappeared from my camera. Later I started getting the message 'Card cannot be read' so I purchased another memory card. I was taking pictures when I get the message 'Card cannot be read'. I turned it off and back on and the missing pictures were there. I then get the message 'Out of memory'. I turn the camera off and back on and the missing pictures are gone again. WHERE ARE THEY???

I have a new D40 and I have had the same problem twice already on two separate occasions. I go to click to take a picture, and it does not take. Nothing happens at all. I try again and nothing happens. I try to refocus, but it does not help. I have to turn it off and on again to get it to work and click to take the picture.

When i turned my camera back on again every one of my pictures were deleted like i had formated it. Is there any way i can get my pictures back? They mean so much to me!

Overexposed photos?? when i hit my shutter release button, sometimes the flash doesn't pop up and the view finder goes black. (it's like the camera is taking a picture but when I release my finger from the shutter release button it doesn't release) The only way to "get out of it" is to turn the camera off then back on. when i go to playback...it is a white picture. are my settings messed up and how do i avoid this in the future. Many picture moments are missed because of this!


The view finder "going black" on an SLR is caused by the mirror being up, which is also when the camera is actually taking the picture! The mirror sends the light from the lens to either the viewfinder or the sensor. When it's down, the light goes ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

Pincushion distortion I've actually had this camera for about 2.5 years now, so presume well out of warranty, but I realise by looking back at my photos that the problem may have been there from the start. When taking photos on the default camera position I get a reasonably severe distortion of the picture, such that a person standing off centre will have his head elongated somewhat toward the corners, and straight lines along the edge will bend toward the corners.

Fujifilm A330 My camera is doing something rather strange; it's always switched on by sliding the front shutter open all the way, and it's ceased turning on when I do that. My dad and I figured out that we can get it to turn on by holding the 'on' button in the back, but it won't get out of the menu/blue 'no image' LCD display for reviewing pictures. In the past, holding the 'on' button was what changed it from picture review mode to picture taking mode, and since everything has swapped around t
