Tip & How-To about Cameras

How to make decision about purchasing a digital camera

When you go to purchase a new camera you must inquire by the various companies. Although Canon, Mitsubishi, Sony cameras are good but you must also look at your budget.
Dont run for the cameras that very cheap because the cheap products dont dive much features. So better go to the authorized stores and test the cameras before purchasing them and test the camera of one company try different models of different companies. I suggest you to maintain a balance b/w the features and your budget

Hi guys... I'm having the same issue with my Sony DSC-T33 as has been described here by many other people. I've done the Reset, and the Power Reset, online with the Sony Tech people. They say now it's a hardware issue and I'll have to send it in.......... NO MENTION of this known issue with the component part. So I bring it up and am told that is not in their database, so they don't know about it. What? I'm given a phone number for the "Customer Relations Team". Now in my online research on this issue, I see that Sony put a two-year limit on fixing this issue for free (free shipping and free fix). The other companies have no such limit. But my issue just occurred..... Is my next best step to contact the "Customer Relations Team"? Does anybody else have this experience? Any idea if they are going to help me or not? I feel so disgusted that Sony is avoiding acknowledging the issue and directing me to sound help; rather forcing me to do so at my own expense. This seems unethical at best. Thoughts? By the way, my issue is that camera powers on but screen is black, although the settings icons do appear in white, and I can review pictures in full color. This happened right after a battery charge. And it happened again on a second DSC-T33 cameras right after a battery charge. Thanks.

Sorry to say that Sony stopped repairing the faulty CCD's that were installed in their cameras for free two years ago. No matter what they told you, they DO know about it, as it is a well known issue (Sony actually produced the faulty CCD's that were installed not only in their cameras, but also in many of their competitors). And I do concur with your displeasure, as I similarly have a now useless Sony camera with the same CCD issue (cost a pretty penny too). And as you've noted Canon continues to repair their cameras with this issue, although they have started phasing out this repair for some of the older models. All I can say is, remember this the next time you're in the market for purchasing a camera. Definitely let it influence your decision. It did me (Canon, there is no substitute! ;-)

Raw mode does not appear in the selection, the maximum is HI

Most digital cameras have modes which allow only certain resolutions and when set to various settings.
Each setting can affect the way the camera reacts.
Read your manual, if you do not have one, then download it from Nikon.
Nearly every digital camera made today has online access for free download of the various items such as manuals, software, and drivers.
I know that some digital camera makers are skimpy on their downloads and information.
Nikon and Canon are two companies which are very good on support.

Powered in not On

That light brown liquid is acid leaking from inside the batteries. The same thing can happen with a flashlight or any other battery-powered object. Now you know why instructions for most battery-powered items always say to remove the batteries if the item is not going to be used for an extended period.

Unfortunately, your camera has probably been ruined by the battery acid. At the least, all or most of the battery contacts have been corroded, but they may possibly be salvaged by a competent camera technician. This problem is obviously not covered by any Canon warranty, although some battery companies offer to repair items damaged by their batteries under certain circumstances.

I suggest that you contact your Canon Service Center and describe the problem, then ask them to quote a price range for the repair. Once you have their price, take it to one or two local camera techs who have good reputations to see if you can get it repaired more cheaply. If the battery company offers any warranty to cover damages from their batteries (check a new battery package), then be sure to get a written report on that from Canon or the local camera tech and submit a claim to the battery company.
