Tip & How-To about Cameras

A tip and suggestion on using any digital camera.

One of the most two important tips in my experience with digital cameras and the use of them is in the following.
When using a digital camera always take the time to put the hand cord on your wrist. This will help to insure that the camera will not be dropped when using any where, including over or near water. By the way, using any digital camera near water should be done carefully. Water is extremely damaging to the delicate internal parts.
When the digital camera is not in use, always be sure to put the camera in a padded case. I know that it takes more time than dropping into a purse or pocket, but if you take the extra time, you will enjoy your digital camera a lot longer.
By dropping a camera into a purse, you will take the chance of the unit being damaged by other items and possibly turning on from pressure of some item on the on button. This can cause the camera's lens to extend and since it is in a compact area, it can become damaged.
By putting the digital camera into a pocket, you take the chance of the camera falling out and being damaged. It is surprising how many cameras I have had which have been dropped and damaged.

what would be the easiest setting to use for a beginner


The easiest setting would be the AUTO mode. In this mode the camera does everything except decide where and when to take the picture. You can also use the various scene modes depending on what you're taking a picture of.
As you gain experience you'll want to use some of the other settings in order to take more control over your photography. I suggest you visit your local library. They should have some introductory photography books which will tell you when to use what setting.

cannot download all of pictures onto pc.


First of all, you should forget about using the internal memory...it just causes problems (as you can readily see). Always use a memory card. If any of the pics on your camera are important, you should download them to your computer before continuing. Then, go into the menu and find "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions. Then, with the card out of the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions. Then insert a blank memory card and go into the menu and find "format" again...follow the on-screen instructions. From this point on, your life will be wonderful.
