Canon mit305 was dark and the photos do not work out


Answers :

Flash is only good to about 5ft. Any farther than that and you should be using higher ISO, longer exposure time, wider aperture (lower F number), or any combination of the 3.

Longer exposures work best for still scenes and require a VERY steady hand, tripod or stable surface to put the cam on but the result is worth is as seen in this photo I took at around 3:00am one day.

I have purchased a Canon EX580 II Speedlight for my Canon 60D. I cannot seem to get it to work when taking photographs. I have tested it on the pilot light and it works OK. As soon as I try it taking a photo it doesn't flash no matter how light or dark it is. Is there something wrong with the flash do you think?


In auto mode your camera makes just about all the decisions for you. Sure, you frame the subject and push the shutter release button, but you never have to think about things like exposure or whether you need to use a flash; the camera handles all of ... Digital Cameras

I have a Kodak Easyshare model dx5430 digital camera (5mp). It has worked like a champ for years. Last night I was at an event when the image display went dark at picture 31. All preceding photos were able to be reviewed. The camera flash works fine. The camera displays all the other characteristics of a working unit. It turns on and off; the flash works, the menu is accessible - everything. It just doesn't register any photos. Even in close-up mode, there is nothing. It's as if the lens cap is

I just got my camera back from Canon but it still isn't working right! I took it in because when I turned it on it said NO CF CARD. They fixed the metal prongs. Now, it still doesn't work to store or view photos on the camera without a cf card. I inserted my old CF (undamaged card) and formatted it and now it seems to take photos BUT nothing shows on my camera viewfinder when I go to take the photos. It shows I have over 3000 photos on my card but they will not display. Help!

I have a canon powershot SD200 digital elph camera. The metal piece on the back of the camera which moves the camera between functions (view photos to shoot video to take photo) no longer works properly all the time. Also, the clicker wheel that moves through different menu options or moves through photos being viewed doesn't always work.

I have a Canon 400d and have recently photographed a wedding. Most of my normal work is for a picture agency which I have been supplying with work for the last four years. I recently had some photos rejected due to excessive noise. The photos were taken on a setting of 200asa which in the past have been ok. The wedding I recently shot, the photos were again very noisy and due to the weather all the shots were taken inside at a hotel. I would say the majority of the shots were at least o

My Panisonic Lumix was dropped in the lake in its case last summer. I dried it out and it still works great. The only thing is now when I take photos of things that are dark like night time photos or a room painted a dark color small spots show up. I am assuming that those are water spots on the lense. What is the best way o fix this problem? Thanks.


If these spots are in different places on each picture, then they are actually reflections of dust particles in the air from the flash being so close to the lens. If they are in the same place on each picture, then they are indeed water spots on the ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera
