Re: suddenly started taking photo's in the raw formant

Raw format pictures can be viewed only using fileviewer software, the Adobe Photoshop CS software program can already read raw file pictures. To change settings just push menu, look for the settings you want to set up. All digicam are user-friendly. If you cannot activate the menu button then your unit has a problem and needs to be serviced.

I have a Nikon D3100 camera. Recently there is a black band at the top part of my pictures, about 1/4. This happens every other picture. It almost looks like the shutter does not open properly every other...

You apparently are shooting in both jpg and raw modes. I do that. So what you have is actually two pictures. The jpg picture is full screen and the raw (nef) picture has the black lines you describe.

I don't know why it does this other than to allow you to recognize which pictures is raw and which is jpg. It is not a problem and picture quality is not impacted in any way.

Your manual should explain fairly clearly the benefits of both formats. You can use the menu to change it to take only jpg or nef pictures and possibly other formats.

When I edit photos, unless I'm in a hurry, I usually make a copy of the NEF photo and edit that. You can make many more changes in an NEF photo than you can in a jpg photo.

In either case, I would suggest you always edit from a copy to protect the original. I think my D-90 allows the use of other formats in addition to jpg, but nef is the only raw format that Nikon uses.

I took photos and checked them on my computer and rotated some of them now when i put my sd card back into my camera to view the photos im getting file formant not reginised

You'll need to check your PC settings, it looks like you may have changed the format (filetype) of your pictures when you saved them after rotating them. I would suggest you camera only recognises photos in JPEG format (suffix .jpg)

Check the photos again on your PC they may have a different suffix such as .bmp. You should be able to re-save as .jpg.

We have a Canon EOS 500D. After using it for 18 months we suddenly have a Raw notice and cannot print photos. We dont know where this has come from or to get rid of it. Advise please.

Sounds to me as if someone has set the image "Quality" to RAW files which are more for a professional or advanced amateur use. Page 70 of your owners manual will show you how to set this "Quality" to jpg. I'm going to include a screen shot of this page because it has diagrams and instructions far better then what I can explain just in type.

Also the RAW files you have must me downloaded to your computer, opened in your image software program and converted to jpg file format before you can print, e-mail or any other "normal" thing people do with jpg format.

RAW is just that the actual raw file of the image captured where as the jpg file format is the compressed version with corrections already made in camera. RAW files need correction in post processing.

I suspect you are using the Rebel's direct printing feature which can not process RAW file format, I don't think you want to print RAW as there has been not corrections.

I know this will help.

Here is the diagrams.

My camera is showing the date stamp on, but when I put my sd card in computer, it does not show it...HElP, I need to send date stamped photos tonight!!

Sorry, not nearly enough info. What model camera, what software are you using on the computer (if any) to alter/save photos, what format are you shooting in (RAW, .jpeg, etc.)...

My hunch is that your rear screen is DISPLAYING time/date but that you don't have the option enabled to actually EMBED the stamp on the photos. Check your settings or ideally check the manual if you have it.

My SX10 is supposed to have a maximum of ten megapixil but no matter if I set it at ten or any setting above the minimum it always takes the picture at the minimum megapixil. Where am I going wrong?

You aren't doing anything wrong, set your camera at the highest resolution and you will have a "large" picture file. If you are shooting jpg format then it's a compressed file from the actual "RAW" file that was produced. However RAW files require special programing to open and use while jpg file format is the "standard" to which all printers and other devices work. I have an 8 meg camera that constantly produces 4, 5 and 6 meg photo files in jpg format and from this I can print and have printed poster size images from 20x30 and 36x40.

When I upload photos onto my computer from my memory card, there are always two copies of each photo. One copy seems true to life and the other is slightly saturated and grainy. It's frustrating that I...

Those two image files have got to have different prefix letters maybe the same file number but the files are way different as one is shot in a jpg format and the other in a RAW format. Your camera is much more powerful that you think and the features exceed most all point and shoot. What you need to do is change the Recorded Pixels this is on page 80 of the manual I'm going to suggest "L" Large for the best printable quality in a jpg picture.
2 screen shots for this

Note to change the setting you have which is including both RAW and jpg you need to turn off the RAW recording. It's a bit confusing but I'm trying to show your the screen shots with these sequences and that's proving difficult in it's own because it's over multiple pages.
Here is what I've got to show you

The short answer is you need to shut off the RAW recording of an image.

Digital camara and memory card

Basically picture files in memory card have corrupt data that's why computer doesn't recognize it.
HP recommends following action...
Close the HP Image Zone or HP Photosmart Software, disconnect the camera from the computer, and reset the camera. (can see this at HP Support)
2nd option is to find some memory card data recovery software on internet and use it to correct data files in memory card.
Thank you.

In order to record in RAW format, you cannot have the selector on one of the Basic zones. You must have P, Tv, Av, M, or A-DEP selected. You should ten be able to see the RAW option on the menu.
