Maybe I am being a bit dim but am hoping someone else knows what to do...I take a picture, view it on the screen, move it around, zoom in, etc...and then I want to save it that way but I can't work out how! I am not even sure this camera does this (I know the Sony Cybershot does but my husband in all his wisdom decided this was the better camera). If someone can tell me how to do this, I will be a happy woman :) Thank you in advance.

Re: Zooming in & saving
Your camera cantt do this. Use the external software that came with your camera, or I would suggest using Picasa (http://picasa.google.com/). It's free and very easy to use for this kind of thing. After all, any software on your computer will give you more options and a better result thatn the camera does when editing yoaour photos.

So from what I read her I think you can't use the viewfinder. It was the reason why I bought a powershot G9, a viewfinder. But on my camera, the viewfinder can't be used anymore, because of a mechanical problem. While zooming, what you see through the viewfinder stays the same. I don't think of giving the camera to a repair shop, because the camera still makes perfect pictures. And yes I would love the view finder to work like it used to be, but I leave it.
If your camera is still in warranty time, please contact a Nikon certified service centre immediately. If you have to pay for it, think twice and start saving for a new camera, if you still can make pictures.
I jeremy- i was having the exact same problem today. I phoned Sony repair, who then had me take out the battery and hold down the power button for about 30 seconds..reinsert the battery and power up. Didn't fix it. I came home and read some posts on here. I ended up trying the gently twist the lens as it was zooming in and out..I twisted a little and pulled a little. About the third time, it worked. (I also held the power button down with the battery in, just to try..maybe that helped, too). Sony wants flat fee of $91 to fix..is that what they told you?
Clean everithing around the battery conections, try another battery too, check the polarity (basiks). Try to use with the computer in webcam mode. But dont try too hard if the common sence not workig, use the warranty!!!
You may have turned off the viewing screen mode.
I've turned my off just to save the battery. There should be a setting/mode so that can at least scroll thru to view the images you've shot.
As for the Busy Message my best guess is the memory cards full. My camera (a kodak) has the option to save images to a very small, useless internal memory or another card. Perhaps yours offers same - so switch to large memory.
As for zooming in as close as you can, you may want to visit a state that's closer.
Yea as you can see the zooms on the Point & Shoot cameras are very limited. Its only good for zooming into things that are just a very short distance away.
