Hi all, I wonder if you can supply some advice regarding a Sigma17-35mm lens I purchased earlier in the year. Basically if I use the automatic or 'P' setting on my Canon EOS 30D camera the image is over exposed by 1 to 2 stops. If I use the same functions with my Canon 18 -55 kit lens the exposure is correct so I would presume the camera is not causing the problem. The only way I can get a correct exposure with the Sigma lens is to compensate manually for each shot. Please note the exposure p

I can transfer the photos from my camera to the PC with the software that came with the camera. When I try to use their e-mail feature I get an error message that says "mail not sent". Yet a few weeks ago I was sending e-mails with pics with no problem, so I know it is not my support system. The program does not allow one to go into my own e-mail and attach pics, so I am stuck with their program which has stopped functioning. What can I do?

My Panasonic DMC-FH1 stopped working after less than a month of use. It has been treated with care, not dropped or thrown about. It powers up, the lens automatically extends, but it cannot focus.

I have a Canon PowerShot A2000IS. The zoom lever is no longer function to the right. As in, the zoom lens still works but the zoom lever will not control it, I have confirmed this by attempting to use the zoom lever in the playback mode.

I haven't used my Nikon Coolpix E5700 for several years now. I have moved several houses, so something may have caused my camera to stop working. However, I've attempted to turn it on several times and all the monitor shows is a "Lens Error" sign. I've taken out the battery, recharged it, and replaced it yet it still doesn't make a difference. Is there any way I can fix it without bringing it to a shop?
