Camera mode wont turn on?

I was recently filming a scene for a movie, and was fixing the angle of a shot on a tripod, when my camera just shut off. I attempted to turn it back on and nothing happened. I turned it off, then turned it on the vcr setting and it turns on fine. but when i try to switch it to camera mode to film, there is no response? i cant figure this out?

Is your camera in lock mode? It's easy to accidentally bump that lever when you're adjusting angles.

Ya thanks alot! I actually got so fed up i called canon and they suggested the same thing, which to my embarassment, was correct. it wasn't engaged completely because i had looked at it really quick, but upon further inspection, it was slightly moved and apparently had engaged. so thanks alot for taking the time to answer this fix!

Shaking when in picture mode


What camera are you using? Generally, when a camera is zoomed in like a telescope, it's difficult to keep the scene steady. When photographing a still shot, the camera will in most cases compensate for the shaking by selecting a faster shutter speed. You can over-ride these in several ways, but that's for another message. When videoing, especially indoors, the camera will shoot at slower shutter speeds, and wider lens opening. Zooming in, like a telescope, creates the shake. Suggest that you shoot with the zoom all the way out (wide angle instead of telephoto), and get closer to your subject. Also placing the camera on a tripod or mini tripod, will steady the shot.

How do you turn the flash on in a sony cyber-shot camera?


The flash mode can be turned on by pressing the UP ARROW button dontinuously for the desired settings. Set it to Forced Flash to turn on the Flash for all the time.
The flash mode will not work when the REC Mode is set to Burst or Multi Burst. It will not work when the Scene selection modes like Candle Mode and Twilight mode is selected. Flash will not work in MOVIE mode also.

I want somebody to tell me the best custom setting for canon G9 when you take photo at night.let say Las Vegas at night


All recent Canon point and shoots, including the G9, have special scene modes. There are two which would be very good for "Las Vegas at night". These are "Night Scene" (if you have a tripod), and "Night Snapshot" (no tripod needed, but less spectacular results). You may read more about them here:
