My DMC-TZ3 always displays this message when in aerial mode - I would think that Panasonic programmed this into the setting.  You might never have noticed the message before or never used the aerial mode before ??

I have turned camera on and set up to take a photo and the shutter release button will not press in to take the photo. I used the camera yesterday and it worked fine!


Turn the camera on and look into the view finder while you try to press the shutter button. Check the information in the view finder to see whether you are getting an error message. If you see an error message in the view finder, remove the lens cap and proceed to take a photograph but, instead of pressing the shutter button this time, press the button near the top of the camera on the back which says "AF/AE. If the camera takes the photo it means you have somehow initiated the auto focus/auto exposure lock which the camera will not override when attempting to take a photo using the shutter button. When you use the AF/AE button, you override this system. To remedy this issue, when you get the error message try pressing the shutter button again. Also, remove the lens to see if the shutter inside has frozen in the "locked" position. If you find this to be the case you will need to contact Nikon Customer Support. The link for Nikon Support is below. The numbers are half-way down the page.

Error message


This may be due to the aperture ring in your lens. Try the following:

1. Turn off your camera
2. Move the aperture ring clockwise then lock
3. Turn on your camera and try again.

If this does not work, do the same thing again but turn the aperture ring counter-clockwise.

Error message r07 on D80


Hi,

his isn't an error message. R04 or R07 or R[any number] refers to the number of shots you can take before you're camera's internal memory buffer is full.

As you're taking pictures, you're camera is writing to your memory card. When you are taking burst photographs, all the other photos you've just taken are "waiting in line" to get written to your card. If your buffer is full, the camera will not let you take another shot until it's finished writing the photo to the card.

Your camera's ability to write to the memory card is only as fast as the memory card itself as well as the quality of the photos (RAW vs. JPEG).

Sports photographers usually shoot in JPEG because they are taking a lot of shots relatively quickly and if their camera freezes then they can lose a shot.

the R means remaining, so R03 three shots remaining/left before the buffer is full.
Switching off the NR high iso and long exposure. buying a 166x card or faster will help but you won't see it on the counter.
If you do the above and switch to jpeg only it goes up.
you won't do this but, the above and quality to basic and small gives R51.
But if you shoot raw its R06 at best.

Any further help, let me know.

Blurry photos on the Sony DSC 170


This issue often is related to lighting, subjects in the foreground, and the lack of optimal settings when using the Easy / Auto function.

First, you should look at subject matter.  If you have the camera set to Easy / Auto, it will focus for you.  This is good if the subject of the photo is the only thing (or the nearest thing) in the frame, however if there is anything else closer to the camera, it will assume that the nearest object is the one being photographed, and will adjust accordingly.  Although it may be something large such as a chair, sofa, table or even a houseplant, it may also be focusing on something as small as a child's toy.  If you must use the Easy / Auto function when photographing your children, make sure that your children are the only (or the closest) subjects in the photo, and the camera ought to set the focus on them.

The second issue is lighting.  Even when using the easiest settings on this camera, you still must make sure that the lighting and flash are optimal.  The flash, for instance, can be set to three different intensities, as not all situations require the same amount of additional light.  Make sure that if photographing indoors, you have either a decent amount of lighting, or the flash set to add the appropriate amount of additional light.  If the area photographed is too dark / bright, the camera (when set to the easiest settings, without any additional specifications from the user) will have difficulty finding (or choosing) the main subject of the photograph.  This is why you will occasionally see multiple little green squares, when it looks (to you) as though your children ought to be the primary --and only-- focus of the photo.  In simple terms, the camera is confused, and will choose what stands out as the main subject.

Remember that although this camera is technically of the point-and-click variety, one of the things that makes it stand out as a digital camera is the ability to adjust the settings as the situation dictates.  I suggest learning what each of the camera settings are used for (it seems daunting at first, but I assure you that it isn't as difficult as it first appears to be... remember, this camera is technically for those who have little-to-no experience with photogrpahy) and applying the available settings to the photos you take.  I am able to turn on my Sony Cyber-Shot DSC W170, adjust the settings to the situation, and photograph my children in less than two seconds more than it would take to turn it on and set it to Auto.  I have taken photos with this camera that have come out beautifully enough to print at the actual stated 8"x10" size (which is rare for a point-and-click), by adjusting only the ISO and flash (and nothing more) to accomodate the setting.

If you are looking for strictly a point-and-click camera that you do not need to set anything on (essentially the digital version of a quality 35mm disposable camera), there are some excellent ones on the market today.  I would reccommend the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC W170 to those who are looking for a camera that is slightly above "beginner" level (though well below "expert" level) cameras.  My husband purchased this for me as a birthday gift, to have on hand for quick photo-taking (quicker than setting up a tripod and adjusting my primary camera) while out and about with our children.  

I have been able to take some very beautiful photos with this camera (three outdoor photos were nice enough to sell), however I have only made use of the Easy / Auto settings a few times, while playing with the settings after first receiving the camera.  There are other beginner-level point-and-click cameras that, in my opinion, take far better digital photos than photos taken using the Easy / Auto functions of the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC W170.

This camera was designed for consumers who make use of the various settings, to ensure an optimal photographic experience (much like the difference between a professional photographer's 35mm camera and a basic 35mm camera).  For this reason, anyone looking for a camera that is an easy, simple point-and-click (i.e. you turn it on, take the photos, and that's it), I would suggest shopping around for a simpler camera.  There are many excellent ones that are designed to be quick and easy, and take good quality photos, without needing to adjust anything.

Stylus 700 error D:5f08 5e02


The error message (D: 5f08 5e02) means that your lens is dying / dead. It just happened to mine (on the Mju 700, but it's the same thing) and I was told that it could be repaired, but it would cost as much as a new camera. I've only had mine 2 years and I've been really careful with it, so I'm a bit annoyed, but I have used it a lot!

Can't take photographs when flash is on


Hi
The powershot s5 IS does in fact have some strange behaviour issues especially on the first rev firmware. For example if you take 15-20 flash photos consecutively without powering down your camera the flash recycle times will increase to about 15sec, so you'll have to wait about 15sec before you can take another flash photo. The work around is to power down the camera and then turn it back ON. Another strange behaviour is manifested by its inability to lock focus after taking a "no-flash" photo, then popping up the flash and trying to take a flash photo. Again the work-around is to power down the camera, pop-up the flash and then power it back up. Confirmed these behaviours in two other cameras of the same model.

My lens is stuck out and it won't go back in!!!


Lens motor is shot. If an older camera- buy a new one a repair will cost nearly as much. If young-[less than a year] send it back
