Yes, if you have used different lenses and a smudge still appears (in the same place) there may be something on your sensor. Have you cleaned or touched the sensor in the past? Typically sensors only get dust (shows up as small fuzzy dark spots) on the sensor, not smudges.

Driver for samsung wb600


If you mean for using your camera as a webcam, see this.

If you mean for download your pictures from the camera, then you don't need a driver. The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

My pictures all come out with a smudge depending on the focus is howm noticeable it comes out on the image


This is almost certainly due to dirt on your lens or mirror - possibly your sensor. If you have two interchangable lenses try them both and see if there is a difference. If no difference the mirror or sensor is probably dirty. In either case, I would suggest you have them cleaned professionally unless you are confident about working inside your camera. If there is no smudge with one lens then the other lens must be dirty. Clean both ends carefully with soft, lint free cloth.

I have something that looks like a smudge on all of my digital pictures. I think it could be an artifact inside the lens. What can I do short of taking the camera in or buying a new one?


If the smudge is always at the same place you have some dirt on the sensor (I ask myself how it could get there since the lense cannot be removed!) In that case you have to give it to be cleaned (ask for an estimate of the cost!!!)

Nikon D60 newbie : colour distortion / large smudge in photos


D-SLR cameras are designed to be used with interchangeable lenses and foreign matter may enter the camera when lenses are changed. Once inside the camera, this foreign matter may adhere to the sensor, where it may appear in photographs taken under certain conditions. To prevent foreign matter from entering the camera
  • do not change lenses in dusty environments
  • point the camera down when changing lenses.
  • e738ca2.jpg
To protect the camera when no lens is in place be sure to thread on the body cap provided with the camera, being careful to first remove all dust and other foreign matter that may be adhering to the body cap.
Remove foreign matter from low-pass filter
  1. Clean the low-pass filter covering the sensor as instructed in the camera manual or continue reading below.
  2. Have the low-pass filter cleaned by authorized Nikon Authorized Service Center
  3. The Nikon D300 and D60 has the ability to clean the sensor* using the "Clean Image Sensor" feature. Please see page 371 in your D300 User's Manual, and page160 in your D60 User's Manual for more information. *Clean Image Sensor may not remove all sensor contamination and additional manual cleaning may be necessary. See page 374 in the D300 manual, and page 162 in the D60 manual for more information.
  4. Fix images with black spots
    Photographs with dust or foreign matter on the low-pass filter can be retouched using the 'Image Dust Off' function available in Nikon Capture 4 or later (available separately) if the image was taken in the NEF format, for more information visit the article on 'How does Image Dust off' work.

Red lighting in background of photo


Many digital cameras have different settings for the background color, my Samsung L200 for example has a setting that will make the pictures normal, black and white, sepia OR have a red, blue or green tint....you may want to check those settings... Otherwise... check to ensure the lense itself is not smudged... I have seen a smudged/dirty lense cause a similar issue.. what type of camera is it??

I have error 99 in my camera canon 400d


Error 99 is a general fatal error.
which includes the problems above mentioned by Q4SteveB but also many others.

It can be caused by a dicky shutter, problems with the CF card interface.

If cleaning and trying a different lens has not worked. Not definitive but as a rule of thumb...
If it letting you take one picture then giving error 99.. and the picture is saved to the card (but may just be black) this is most likely the shutter needs replacing..

If it takes a picture and gives error 99 but there is no picture on the card or the picture is 0KB its a CF interface problem.

If you get an error 99 when you plug in the USB its a USB interface error, you can try a different cable but unfortunately in most cases if another lens or cable wont work it needs repair

I have error 99 in my camera canon 400d


1. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
4. Insert a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If it does, then the camera should be
serviced. If it does not, then please proceed to the next set of steps:
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If so, then the CF card is the most
likely source of the issue. Try using a different card.
If the message does not appear, please complete the following steps:
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the lens contacts by gently rubbing them with a pencil eraser
or soft cloth. Be careful that you do not let any debris fall into the
camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
If the “ERR 99′ message only appears when one particular lens is
attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.
If you see the “ERR 99′ with a different Canon lens attached, then the
camera should be serviced.
