Hello! I actually have a TZ3 and have been having problems with the quality of the pictures without using the zoom (grainy) as well as problems with the quality of the picture when using the zoom...


Hello, yes a few suggestions "grainy" could be from an auto ISO setting the sensor speed high as in possibly ISO 400 even 800 or higher you get the pictures but it's grainy. On pocket point and shooters this is most often the case in full automatic modes and on your camera it's called "Intelligent ISO Mode" You should consult your manual and select a more user selectable ISO speed manually. Another feature with your camera is image stabilization this you can turn on or off preferably off when the camera is mounted to a tripod. Okay for the blurry part on the zoom the quickest way to explain this is every tiny movement you make holding the camera is magnified 10 times, this is where the image stabilizing feature would be handy. Jennifer in my younger days I could hold a 35mm camera with a 300mm lens steady at 1/60 of a second now I use only a 200mm lens with image stabilization "on" to get the same results. What you have is a full time auto everything camera if it's working for you it doesn't matter if it's 3.5 years old. You are still working with a 7.2meg camera with a print capability of 11x14. hope this answered some of your questions.

Blank roll of film


Two possible problems:

1. Film did not wind on. 2. Shutter not opening.

Easy to test with camera back open. Load a film and fire the shutter a few times each time with winding on, to see if film is winding correctly, at the same time you should be able notice if the shutters are firing, eight of them in succession makes a bit of noise.

Everytime i take a picture on my samsung tl220, it shows up as "No image file"


Hi Digital cameras have brought more fun to photography than anything since the first Polaroid, but there's a little more to making them work than point and click. Short of dropping the cameramag-glass_10x10.gif into a lake, though, most of the problems you'll encounter have simple fixes.
Taking Pictures
  • Step 1If the image quality is poor, check the lens to make sure it's clean (see How to Remove Fingerprints From a Camera Lens). Learn how to focus or pre-focus your model of camera. Check the manual to see what resolutions your camera supports and make sure you know which one is selected. Higher resolutions give better pictures but take up more digital space. If using flash, make sure you're close enough to the subject.Sharpen photos on computer after downloading (see How to Get Top-Notch Scans).Step 2.Having problems locating the pictures you took? Look for playback or review mode on the camera to view pictures on your camera. Use the arrow buttons to scroll through pictures. Make sure the battery is attached properly and that the camera is powered, to confirm pictures were actually taken.

    Hello

    Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

    Always check the batteries first but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty.
    It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

    Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

    Hello, new user for canon rebel. read manual for basic instructions & still get message : no image when i attempt to take a picture. how do i get the camera to show the image i'm aiming at?


    Unless you have a Rebel XSi with "live view", you're not going to see the image on the LCD before you take the picture. No digital SLR made before 2007 had this option. You compose your picture using the optical viewfinder, and only see your picture after you have taken it. (But at least you don't have to wait until the film is developed. ;-) )

    Check that you have not got Macro set accidently.
    If lighting level are low and the camera is selectinging a slow speed - reset to Apeture Priority -setting 'A' and and be very gentle with the release - the slightest movement will blur an image on long exposure.
    Try these thing and if still introuble come back with more detail
