Question about Phoenix Gold P-5000 35mm SLR Camera

Open Question

My camera will not turn on! Please Help!

I was shooting away with a Kalima Flash on my Phoenix camera. I shot like 16 pictures and decided to take a break. Turned the camera off and the flash. When I tried using it again, the camera did not turn on. I thought it was the batteries. So I switched the batteries from my other camera, (both SLR), but the batteries worked fine. The shutter doesn't go all the way down. The light meter doesn't turn on. Does any one have any idea what could be wrong with it? Please help.

SOURCE: led light keeps flashing on my phoenix gold amp

Well I'm beginning to think its not just my amp. PG is having a lot of problems with there amps. It don't help with the connections being internal. Makes it to easy for strands of wire to enter. I just got mine in May and it just quit.

Tip

My camera has spots in the picture



The spots are caused by the flash being SO close to the lens. Anyobject that can reflect the flash reflects it right back at the camera.
This is an image problem with most point and shoot digitals. Watch forreflective surfaces and stand at an angle to them. Turn on more lightsin the room before using flash. Most indoor pictures start way too dark.
Stand at a slight angle to the image orperson you are photographing - don't shoot straight on. (I kneel downand shoot up - makes a good shot too.)
If you are shooting toward the sun lit side of an image, shield the lens from direct sunlight with your hand (Keep your hand out of the picture!)
A professional photographer has the flash way away from the lens for a reason...

My sanyo vpc-s670r digital camera has a blurred shot. how can i fix this problem? i also clean the lens still blurred especially when shotting outdoor.


You must take pictures gently. Blur picture may occur if you move during capturing a picture. Or your hand move too fast after taking a picture. Try to stay still for two or three second after push the capture button.
Blur picture when shooting outdoor can be caused by too much light. Don't forget to set your camera in outdoor or panorama mode, and turn of the flash light if you think its too bright.

Hope this help and RATE please !

Pictures are dark with flash


How far away are you from the target when taking the picture? Most of these point and shoot camera's have a recommended distance from the focus point of the picture in or around 6-8 feet. Once going beyond 10ft, you will rarely get the full lighting from the flash.

Flash will not "fire".


The camera has a "motion detector". And is generally for taking pictures automatically whenever a "subject", such as wild game, come within the detector.
That flash is for taking pictures of subjects less than 12 ft away and not a darkened area beyond 12 ft.

If you are using it to automatically capture in the evening, then point the camera lower, like to the ground 12 ~ 20 feet away. It will shoot some nice, but somewhat grainy pictures!

If you are holding the camera to take pictures, it wasn't designed for that, but it will work for "close" shots.

I get a warning which says *Battery Exhausted*. I've replaced them but still get the warning.. Any idea whats wrong?


earlier i posted solution in similary problem. maybe help you this.

solution is good batteries, Ni-Mh or Lithium, rechargeable only not alkaline. but...problem is how long you watch pictures on lcd display or how much is flash in use. if always by shooting pics used flash that means that you can with best batteries 30, 20 or less pics shooted. and of course, if you connect camera with pc, how long is cam on? just transfer pics on pc and turn the camera off. the best solution is use the card reader for pics transfering.
if is flash off, it's possible to shot 120-150 pics with Ni-Mh. with lithium i don't know, maybe 500 pics. don't use camera lcd for analysing pics it's just there for short preview.
with alkaline batt., very low quality, i shot 30 pics without flash.

i shot also very good pics at night without flash. nikon coolpix L15 can do that but you must have more praxis. alkaline batteries shooting!
after 3 pictures on display is message: warning! the battery is exhausted. what you can do? turn the camera off. wait about 10 minutes. turn the camera on, you can shot 3 or 5 pictures and than turn your camera off again.
you can repeat this few times and you be lucky if you 30 pics captured:)
REMEMBER: all this goes without camera flash!!!
flash and every zooming use more battery power! and that was all magic:).

When is on AUTO wont shoot with flash.I have sony dsc w 110


It will not because the AUTO mode decides if you need a flash. Look for a flash with an X through it. That means you shut it off. Turn it on.

Guys - I just recevied a new H9 today. Was using it and decided to turn the flash off. Later on I wanted to turn it back on and I got the famous "flash settings cannot be changed" error message. I found the problem. I had turned on the "continuous shooting" option as I wanted to see how fast it would take photos continuously. When that option is on, you cannot use the flash so therefore you cannot change the flash settings. I put the camera back in "single-shot" mode and now the flash works fine. I hope this fixes your issue.

Thanks, Ken

Flash rebound


A camera flash against a glass, or any reflective surface, will bounce the flash light right back at you. Turn off flash when shooting through glass. Note flash is only for shots less than 12 ft distance. It take it you are shooting scenery shots through vechicles or buildings, ie, long scenery shots anyway, so flash does nothing but bad things.
