Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

When i go to shoot an action photo like something that is moving the camera always delays. i focus on the moving target but when the button is pressed the subject moves out of the view and then the shot is missed. my old olympus stylus from a few years ago used to take great moving shots. i could capture the kids doing just about anything like sports and stuff that you need to have the camera fire right away and not lose the moment because of the delay of the camera shutter. what kind of setting


Answers :

OHH - I can met this problem before , the camera is trying to auto focus and in the time it does the focus the action has passed.\015\012
\015\012Take a light & speed setting - then switch to manual mode OR manual focus , this will eliminate the AUTO focus looking for best light reading distance etc.\015\012
\015\012Some cameras also have a "fast" setting which is usually a 'running man' icon - click this button and the picture will drop back to 5mpixels but it will take a quick shot instead of saving then scanning at a slower speed.\015\012

The view finder or screen are black. The lens moves out when the camera is powered on, I can hear the shutter click when pushed; the telephoto is moving; I have all the settings show on the screen when the camera is powered on but I cannot see anything through the view finder or on the screen and no image is captured when a pic is taken. I changed the batteries and it made no difference.


I know it may sound like the shutter is moving, but you're going to have to actually look down the lens barrel to confirm it's actually moving, and not just producing a sound effect from the camera. Also keep in mind Canon's SX IS series cameras are ... Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera

Now, when I turn it on, it just shows the main screen and won't go into my music or move to anything else, like the radio for example. It's like it's locked.

I have a Nikon d200 and need to take sports photos in a basketball court The sport is very fast moving. What should I set the camera to. Lately the photos are dark and or blurry


You want the fastest shutter speed you can get and the largest aperture possible.If you're close enough and it's allowed, use the flash. The flash will freeze the action. However, it's likely to give you a dark background instead of a blurry back ... Nikon D200 Digital Camera with 18-200mm Lens

Lens error I've had my camera for about 9 months and it's been working fine. 2 weeks ago I turned it on, went to take a photo and instead got this "Lens error" and the lens won't retract back in and the camera won't do anything.

The 'selector' mode that moves between recording, camera modes etc. won't move from the recording mode. Worked great this morning. Videotaped entire disc but now cannot move that green-light selector. HELP!! It's a borrowed camera and I don't believe I pushed anything I shouldn't have!

Shutter Lag All, I have an Olympus 5050 Digital Camera that I have been using for a while now for home use and I am quite happy with the results. The only complaint I have is with the capture speed of the camera. The shutter lag seems to be about between 3-5 seconds which becomes quite obvious while taking pictures of moving objects (moving kids). I don't know if the issue is with the shutter speed of the camera or with the slower memory cards. I am using the SimpleTecg 256 MB Compact Flash card


Card speed won't interfere with shutter lag.\015\012\015\012The lag is much less (near non-existent) if you pre-focus. Or use manual focus with small enough aperture to get lots of depth of field. Make sure your kids are in the focus zone and just sn ... Olympus Camedia C-5050 Zoom Digital Camera

Every thing seems to work but view screen is blue and takes a blue picture (has ripples that move when you point or move camera around like you can almost see something but you can't. My logo and phone number come up in the view screen fine when the camera is first turned on then it goes to the blue screen when the camera is ready to take a picture. Is it worth fixing???? Cost to fix???? Neil


This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. ... Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera

Hi, the camera worked fine for years and one day the camera stopped "seeing". The 1" screen works fine but the camera doesn't see light or the scene and will not capture images. It seems like it wants to work but doesn't. It acts like I left the lens cover on it. dave


This is the most common problem with digital cameras.\015\012The shutter is stuck in the closed position. This is most likely due to moisture residue built up over time on the shutter leafs. You will need to have the camera serviced to have eit ... Fuji FinePix S5000 Digital Camera

Clicking sound My camera makes a clicking sound when I move it around...like it's a zoom issue. I took one back and got another one, but it has the same issue. The people at the store said it sounded like there was a screw loose inside the camera.


If you go to the Menu and click on the AF setting, change it to single AF and the sound should go away. It explains online that when it is on Continuous AF the camera is always trying to focus, which is what is making the noises. The sound does go aw ... Kodak EasyShare M380 Digital Camera

Hello, I have a Canon PowerShot s3 is. I was taking pictures at my sons football game and next thing I know the lens will not move. I tried to wack it gently and I tried pressure.

My camera is producing spots, or freckle-like or shadow-like spots which are noticable on photos such as a clear blue sky photo. The spots are in the exact same place on photos even when I change to different lens. I know the mirror flips up for a photo, but to be safe, I have cleaned it, but that didn't help anything.

Blurry Images Hi, I have a coolpix 5700 and sometimes when I take pictures with it and later go look at them on the camera's display they start out blurry and then "snap" into focus. However, when I later load them on my computer, they remain blurry. I can't find anything in the manual describing this phenomenan but it really annoys me because the pictures look so good on the camera, but I can't get that quality on my print outs or monitor display. Does anyone know anything about this? I'd like


The camera display is a two-stage progressive display. The image is roughed out, then the interleaving lines are filled in. This has no effect on the image itself, just the monitor display.\015\012\015\012Apart from the media, digital photography is ... Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera

Very slow After I take a picture it takes a very long time until I can take another one. The viewfinder lamp swithces slowly from green to orange and the camera is not responding to anything until the lamp stays green. It takes even longer if i used the flash. Anyway I can fix it? I opened the camera and I noticed there is a battery (like a watch battery). Can that be replaced? Anybody knows anything about this battery? Thank you in advance for any feedback.
