The back of the camera where you load the film will not close.

I purchased camera VIV3800N on 9-11-08 for my sons photography class. I need to get it fixed a.s.a.p. If you can not tell me how I can fix it can you recommend a repair shop in the Chicago area (suburbs too).

How to use and do photography on canon power shoot sx 60sh?


This is a very open-ended question. Start by reading your owners manual to get familiar with your camera's features. Then go take pictures. Take a photography class as there are probably local clubs or professionals or colleges or adult education or other sources in your area that can help. There are also online courses available. One option is New York Institute of Photography. They will allow you to do this from home, send you all the course material and photography assignments and you submit those for critique. Good or bad, it is what you make from it..nothing more. Good luck. Photography can quickly become a passion.

Photos are faint and over bright


If you are using the "Auto" or "Auto Exposure" feature of the camera, then the camera's internal sensors need to be looked at by a professional repair shop.

If you are adjusting the settings yourself, my suggestion is to use an exposure mode of ISO 200 to ISO 800, keeping in mind the lower the ISO number, the more light you will need in the background, the higher the ISO the less light you will need.

You can take a learning class online or purchase a book about techniques of photography.

I have a Vivitar ViviCamx024 camera wish I received as a xmas gift from my son I can't get the battery cover to go back on the camera and top part where holder is broke and the top were the power on and...


This camera ought to be under some kind of warranty if it is less than a year old, but I have no idea what that warranty might be. In the UK, normally within the first year you can return faulty items to the place where they were purchased for some kind of remedy. Elsewhere, you may need to apply to the manufacturer. You would need proof of purchase, and maybe the warranty documents, which your son may still have.

However, from your description of the problem, the retailer or manufacturer or service center may take the position that the camera has been damaged by dropping it or similar, which would not be covered by a warranty. Perhaps it would be covered under a household insurance policy.

Fixing an item like this is not always economic, particularly if you have to pay for it yourself. Even under warranty, the manufacturer will often just replace it with a new item rather than try to fix it. Perhaps you should look for a new camera, or let your son know that you are having another birthday this year!

Photography Class Camera


Hello, depending on the class he is taking you may find that a normal digital camera will suffice. Most camera classes and courses now use digital, unfortunately the old film cameras are becoming a thing of the past. If your son is a mad keen photographer then I would consider investing in his future and buy him a good quality digital SLR. I hope this is somewhat helpful.

Film loading problem Minolta Maxxum 430SI RZ


not solution, but a suggestion, something to look for/try.
i think it is trying to tighten it and take up the slack in the spool. there might be little red dots or something like that on the inside when you open it up. you are supposed to have the film go to a certain spot before you close it. normally, the film is sticking out the right length, but you might have to pull it out extra first. you might also have to tuck the end of the film behind a roller or in front of a roller before you close it. look for really tiny diagrams inside the camera, or maybe just tiny arrows indicating which way the film is supposed to wind. good luck with your class!

Your problem could be caused by one of several things. The lens may be out of adjustment or have a loose mount. The camera also had problems with the mirror hinges. Look into the mirror area with the lens off to see if the mirror is square within the mount ring.

Day time photography


Could be a camera problem but it's possible that your hand or part of a straying finger may be covering the sensor on the front that tells the camera what the exposure is in full auto mode. You'll need to do some test shots making sure there's noting in the way. It could be that the sensor is failing, maybe put the camera into fully manual and take a shot a about 125th of a second at f16 on a bright, sunny day to see if the camera responds with a good image. A good source of information is the manufacturers web site, there may be a firmware download that could fix the problem. Good luck with it.
