Tip & How-To about Cameras
Do NOT throw away any of the contents of the box.
That's it- the most important tip for your new camera.
In Fixya, a large proportion of the questions we see start out- "I lost the CD that came with my camera. How do I download pictures to my computer?"
Another popular category is- "I lost my manual- how do I do this that or another common camera task?"
Occasionally we see- "I lost my charger. How do I charge my camera?"
Really? You "lost" it?
A digital camera is almost useless if you can't get the pictures onto a computer to show or print them. A camcorder almost as much so, though some can play back through a TV (if you haven't lost the cable).
Sometimes you can download a copy of the manual, and/or some of the software, for some cameras, but not all. Some makes simply don't have a website offering such downloads. Others may only offer software updates, but not the main drivers/applications that came on the CD, or there may be conditions. If you want to download drivers for a Sony camcorder, for instance, you may be asked for the code that was printed on your original CD. Otherwise you may have to PURCHASE a replacement!
Avoid all this hassle- just keep the stuff safe.
