Cannot Take Picture

The symbol appears to indicate the camera is not steady but even when I put it on a tripod I get the same symbol and cannot snap the picture. Is there a setting I could change. Appreciate any replies.
Thanks

I took the battery out to reset the camera and now everything is as it should be. I don't know what could have been wrong but I am sure all is well now.

Having difficulty in finding a good tripod to hold Nikon D5000 steady especially on un-even ground and with additional larger lenses


A cheap discount-store tripod isn't worth the money. For the best results, you need a good tripod. Unfortunately, it's almost a law of nature that a tripod that's light enough to carry isn't going to be steady enough.

Visit a good camera store (not a department store that happens to sell cameras) and try some out. You want to find a good tripod that balances weight, stability, and cost. Only you can decide where that balance point is for you. Check the web. Here's one essay that may help (and may dishearten you):

Yes, a good tripod will cost money. But a good tripod will still be a good tripod ten or twenty years down the road, long after you've replaced your current camera. I'm on my fourth tripod now, and I wish I'd bought it first and skipped the first three.

I have a Powershot A85 and am trying to shot silver jewelry and am having a problem getting a clear picture. I have lost my manual - can you tell me how do I get a clean clear picture to put on a website?...


Recommend a room with good ambient, non-direct, lighting. Also place the camera in "Portrait" mode (the dial selection with the lady's profile). Also turn off the flash by pressing the lightning bolt button repeatedly until you get the icon with the slash through the lightning. Next put it in close-up macro mode by pressing the little flower button. Next use the timer to take the shot, by pressing Func Set, then scrolling down to the mode selection, and then scrolling right to select the 2 second option.

The camera is now set for such a closeup. Recommend using a tripod to keep the camera extra steady during the shot. If no tripod is available, recommend bracing the camera against another object, such as a chair to help keep it steady. Aim and zoom at the piece of jewelry, push the shutter halfway down to focus on the jewelry (should see a green box). Once you get the green box indicating focus, press the shutter all the way down to start the timer. Hold the camera extra steady until about a second after the shot.

Good Luck!

How do I turn off the flash for the canon powershot a630?


First of all, the flash can not be turned off in "Auto" mode. You can turn it off in any mode other than Auto. Would recommend Program "P" mode, which is very similar to Auto, but allows you to modify certain minor items such as flash and white balance.

Rotate your mode dial to "P", then press the button on the back with the "lightning bolt" icon. Press until the lightning bolt with a slash shows up on your LCD screen. The flash is now turned off in Program mode. Try taking a picture.

Remember, if in low light conditions you'll need to keep the camera extra steady without flash to get a clear picture. Recommend placing the camera on a table or chair (or even better, use a tripod), then using its autotimer to snap the picture.

I also have the problem of pictures not in focus. I have made a point to lock in first by pushing halfway down before snapping the picture. It's ridiculous that a picture of an inanimate object is not in...


Set the camera on a firm surface or a tripod and take a few test shots...are they better? If so, that means that you are moving when pressing the shutter.

Shutter speed


On most fuji cameras the programmed shutter speed for the sports or action mode is 1/1600. This is the mode you need to use. You should not have to change the aperature unless you have a problem with the light. This is the most difficult shot to make with a digi cam. So make sure you use a larger steady tripod for this shot (If you can't use a tripod crouch down on one knee and use the other as a support.) Keep a steady hand and don't make the mistake of creating camera shake by hurrying an action shot. I focus a little ahead of my subject, then snap the shot when I see they appear. This method even works with lightening. Practice making this kind of shot. You can get very good shots with some care and practice. Good luck.

Red hand symbol is flashing on the view screen


This is the sign warning you that the shutter speed is slow so camera shake is a problem. It means use a tripod or support the camera because holding by hand will cause blurred pictures that you see. When you see this sign you can either try to get more light on the subject or support the camera. This sign will also come on the low light conditions. Look at the shutter speed & you will see that this symbol will appear when it falls to about 1/60th of a second. Using a tripod is the best idea especially for a panoramic shot as when it is on the tripod you can turn the camera through 180 degrees taking overlapping shots then "stitch" them together in Photoshop or whichever software you use to create a single large panorama. If you don't have a tripod then put the camera on a wall or lean against something to give you more support. Good Luck!
