More better quality = larger size picture = more information to write to memory. Hence, less shots...

What kind of camera? What kind of battery or batteries? What kind of storage card in camera?

My Kodak easy share m583 is start hanging after taking 50 shorts plz give any solution


Do you mean you can shoot 50 pictures and then the camera stops and shuts down?
If you are shooting constantly that is not bad. But if the battery is empty after 50 shots and you have to charge it every time you took 50 shots the battery needs a replacement. If you mean he camera does not switch off after 50 shots, but does not do anything you won't that is bad.
The battery should be able to make 200 pictures when fully charged. That can vary, depending on lots of things, like how many time between the shots, temperature, using flash, lots of viewing photo's or video on the camera. When the camera just shuts down after about 50 pictures, you should buy a second (and perhaps a thirty) battery.

My Sony DSC H1 Camera easily get drains the batteries. I already tried to replace new batteries 3x and when i use it, just take 5 shots and the battery was drained already.


If you are shooting with flash and using alkaline batteries, this certainly could be the case. If you are using lithium batteries or NiMH rechargeable batteries and are not shooting with flash, and are having this problem, then there is likely some internal problem with the camera that is draining the batteries unnecessarily.
In that case, you'd want to take the camera to a repair shop for troubleshooting.

My FujiFilm s7000 only shoots 30 seconds of video before telling me it's busy and saving what it shot. Why does it do this and how do I fix it?


To shoot longer videos, you need a card fast enough to keep up. Faster cards are more expensive but if you shoot a lot of video, it may be worth it to you.

Shots coming out black or nearly black. I'm shooting in RAW. When I try and rescue them on photoshop they come out really grainy


Sounds like the shots are under exposed with the shutter speed to fast.
Are you shooting in low light and no flash ?

If so, reduce your shutter speed to something like 1/60 with an aperture of around F5.6 - F7.1 (these can be lowered if you raise your iso)

Obviously this will depend on the lens type and brand.

Your statement sounds like you are shooting in raw at a very fast shutter speed with a low iso (200).

The grainy effect is normally due to a lot of noise (high iso) which makes this sound strange to say the least.

Check your camera settings (menu) and turn on noise reducution, this will help in removing some of the noise.

Using up batteries in two days


if you are using "AA" size, do NOT use typical alkalines in your camera, they die too fast. Buy rechargable NiMH batteries and a charger at Walmart or somewhere. These will hold a charge longer for you. Also be sure to turn off teh camera when not shooting because the camera is always draining battery life when "on."

How do you set up sequential shooting on an Olympus E500


Single-frame shooting o Shoots 1 frame at a time when the shutter button is
pressed. (normal shooting mode)
Sequential shooting j Shoots 4 frames or more at 2.5 frames/sec. (in SHQ,
HQ or SQ) for as long as the shutter button pressed.
Focus and exposure are locked at the first frame.
1 Press the </Y/j (Remote control/
Self-timer/Drive) button.
2 Use the control dial to set.
o Single-frame shooting
j Sequential shooting
3 Press the shutter button all the way to
take the picture.
Press the shutter button fully and keep it
pressed. The camera will take pictures in
sequence until you release the button.
Notes
Sequential shooting is not possible when [NOISE REDUCTION] (g P. 95) is set
to [ON].
During sequential shooting, if the battery check blinks due to low battery, the
camera stops shooting and starts saving the pictures you have taken on the card.
The camera may not save all of the pictures depending on how much battery power
remains.

The above comes from page 62 of your user manual.

Not functioning d200

Nikon D200 High Speed Performance

d200.jpg

I bought mine from Ritz here. I bought another D200 from Adorama here. Also try Amazon here. Adorama usually has D200/18-70 kits in stock here. It helps me keep adding to this site when you click these links to get yours.
HIGH SPEED PERFORMANCE
General:
My D200 is fast, smooth and quiet. Unlike my D1H, my D200 makes less noise and vibration. It doesn't feel as macho, and allows me to shoot in more places more discreetly. At five frames per second it just hums along sweetly, compared to my bigger cameras which always felt like something was going to come flying off of them from all the clattering.
Buffers versus Memory Card Memory
The D200 uses two very different kinds of memory for storing images.
We're all familiar with the CF cards used to store hundreds of images. These aren't that fast and card makers rate them for write speed. The D200 uses these for recording your images.
The D200, like all professional digital cameras, has a second very high speed internal cache memory called a buffer. You never touch this. This buffer memory stores 25 frames of JPGs, 21 frames of raw or 19 frames of raw + JPG.
The buffer memory is fast enough to store all these frames at the full 5FPS rate, or faster.
The D200 is never slowed by memory speed card. The D200, like other professional cameras, has a second independent set of processors which handle writing the contents of the fast buffer memory to the slower CF card. Because this writing is done with a second set of processors you never know it's working except for the green CF light on the back. The D200 can be busy for over a minute writing to the CF card and you still have the complete ability to shoot at 5 FPS and play back.
The buffer is so deep that even under the heaviest shooting it's unlikely that you'll ever fill it. Even if you fill the buffer you can still make photos and playback, just that the maximum shooting rate will lower a bit until the buffer write and frees up at least one frame.
It takes it a 100 seconds to write 400 MB of data from 19 uncompressed RAW + Large FINE JPG files to my 40x 1GB Lexar card. As a photographer you don't care how long it takes to write. So long as the buffer isn't full the camera works as fast as ever. Even if it is full you can shoot the next shot as soon as the buffer clears enough room. You don't have to wait for everything to write to make a next shot. Even with my slow 40x lexar 1GB card, a constipated buffer and huge compressed raw + JPG Large Fine files I can make a new shot every 3.2 seconds. With uncompressed raw + JPG Fine Large I can get off a new shot with a full buffer every 3.7 seconds. If you ever get to these limits you're doing something stupid. Just shoot JPG and you'll never be able to fill up the buffer faster than you can shoot. With Large FINE Optimal Quality JPGs the buffer clears at the rate of 1 FPS. With Large Basic Optimal Quality JPGs I can run at 2 FPS even with a full buffer. Use the smaller image sizes or the Size Priority JPG setting and you can shoot as fast with the buffer full as empty!
I've had to do seriously stupid tests to fill it up.
Shot Buffer Readout
A shot buffer is fast memory inside the camera which stores the shots you've just made. Your memory card is written from this buffer. Even with the slowest card on earth you can shoot as fast as you want, since it all sits in the buffer until written. Your card is recorded in the background while you shoot. The green CF light tells you this is happening.
The size of this buffer is how many shots it can hold while allowing you to shoot at 5 FPS. If it gets full the camera slows to only as fast as your card will accept data, which is about one frame per second . These buffers are why you don't need to worry about card speed.
I've never filled up more than 9 shots in a buffer. I don't shoot that fast. With a 25 frame buffer the D200 has far more than I'll ever use.
This is the number you see while the shutter button is pressed halfway. It usually looks like [r25], which means it's empty and can hold 25 more shots. Normally you'll see a big number like [527] or [ 1.3]k, which is how many shots are left on your card. As you shoot fast sequences you can see this number drop. When it drops to [r00] your buffer is full and the camera slows down its shooting until the buffer is recorded to the card. It's fun to look at when you get your camera, but since I never fill it up I don't worry about it. You'd have to be shooting many long high speed sequences continuously with a slow card ever to use much of this.

Unhappy with the quality of the pictures


Is the white dot in the viewfinder? I could see that getting very annoying so I'd probably send it back. The shots I've taken indoors with the flash on the c2100 have not had any problems with over exposure. There are both exposure and flash compensation settings in the camera, make sure you haven't changed them by accident. If this is your first digital you have to get used to the way the images look, it's not the same as film. At first digial images look "soft" and more grainy, more so if you look at them at 1:1. I usually view them so they are about 8" wide on the screen, or about 1:2. As the number of pixels goes up the difference between different compression levels becomes less noticable. If you shoot in 640x480 mode you'll see a difference between high and normal. At full resolution on some shots you'll get better color on SHQ over HQ. And TIFF is rarely any better than SHQ.
