It could be that the shutter in the camera has worn. If you have taken a fairly large amount of photos with this camera over the 6 or 7 years you may have had it, the shutter mechanism may be having a problem. They do have a finite life expectancy on all cameras.
Assume that thecamera were new, and the batteries were new also, the device should be powered on to achive the first photo shoots. Locate the cameras power on buttons either situated on the top of the device or at sides. Usually a press button should allow for the camera to be in functioning mode ready for the first photo shoot. The camera poower button may also be the flash shoot button unless additions buttons were observable.
The camera may require manually opening the shoot lense to achieve flash to capture pictures. Observe the camera buttons for every complementary buttons that may require activation prior to photo shoots. Usually smaller cameras with lenses may require manual lense adjustments prior to every photo shoot.
Honestly I have never heard of this one. Most likely you shorted the board inside the camera. Was it ever exposed to water? You may need to send in for repair. Check instruction manual and see if you can do a factory restore. If that doesnt work contact tech support.
Your camera can use both SD and SDHC (high-capacity) cards. With 14 megapixels, I'd recommend the SDHC. If you're going to shoot videos, get a class 6 card. It's more expensive but it shoots videos trouble-free. Sandisk is a good brand.
Common issue with the A8100fd. The most likely problem you are having is not enough light. Try shooting in bright sunlight to test the "graininess". Make sure you use the flash anytime the light is not bright. Even though the camera will shoot in low light (without flash), because it defaults to a high ISO setting, which (just like film) accentuates the "grain", or more properly termed in digital photography, "noise". Set the camera for a low ISO setting and use the flash whenever you see the "red hand" symbol on the screen.
you probably have the burst on. I have done this lots of times. before you get ready to take your shot, push the delete button until the multi-burst icon goes away. this will be represented by what looks like stacked boxes followed by either an H, an L, or a sideways 8 (or infinity symbol). that should solve your taking 2 pictures at once thing.
It depends on the quality of the image and the number of mega pixels at which you shoot photos. HP Photosmart M517 shoots at up to 5 mega pixels + there is an additional setting called "5MP Best". 5MP setting creates images that are around 1.5MB - 3.5 MB in size. So, assuming 2.5 MB as an average, you'll get around 52 images per 128 MB at the best possible quality. You can do the other math. However, the camera always displays an "estimate" of how many more pictures you can take.
Now if you want to increase the number of pictures you can take you should decrease the image quality. 5 MP regular might give you upto 64 images per 128 MB, 3 MP may give you uptp 128 images per 128 MB (these are all approximations that evaluated based on my experience with this camera). I suggest that you don't go below 3 MPotherwise you'll get images that look OK on screen but not good for printing.
yes, my camera offers that option too.
I can either shoot/store the images onto the camera directly OR onto a memory card. And I use the memory card. Generally the camera storage is pretty small.
To find the setting, explore the cameras menu. It's there somewhere. Consult your book or do a search online.
