Question about Sony Alpha DSLR-A300 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Cuts off the bottom of my pictures

When I look through the live view and I snap the photo...the photo ends up lower than what I see. For example, if I line up the top of view finder with my daughter's head, snap the picture, and then look at it...there is a gap between her head and the top of the picture. It is cutting off the bottom of the picture.

That happens to my camera also

what i think is happening is that live view uses a digital immage not what the image sensor sees when you take the picture the optical view finder uses the atual immage that the sensor will see

I can see something called "Exp Sim" in the bottom right corner of my 1100D. It flashes sometimes and is displayed continuously when I click a photo. What is this?


"Expo Sim" (Exposure Simulation) shows what your picture would look like with your chosen settings. For example, put the camera in full manual mode, start Live View, start turning dials and you'll see changes in the look.

My Canon PowerShot A95 camera shows all streaky blur in the viewing screen in the mode up position to snap a picture. It works fine in the down position to view photos. What's wrong?


This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager, and is a known defect for your particular model camera.. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free if you live in the US, Canada, and a select few other countries. If you live outside the US, contact Canon support for your country to see if they'll still honor the advisory (some still will, especially if you stress you knowledge that this is a known defect of the camera). They may also include free shipping both ways (free shipping varies with countries). This is regardless of your camera's warranty status.Please see this link for more info.

Error code 0x80010108 wont allow me to view pics


Hello,

This error is generally faced with Windows Live Photo Gallery when viewing pictures from external devices such as cameras or memory cards. There are different known causes to this error, among which, one is an installation problem of Windows Live, but the uninstalling and reinstalling does not seem to fix this issue.

However the solution is quite simple. You have to import your pictures from your device onto your computer through Windows Live Photo Gallery (you will have this option when device is connected in the autorun menu).

Once the pictures imported, you will be able to view them. Be careful to keep the original photos on your device in case this solution does not fix this issue.

If problem persists, I recommend opting for another picture viewer program.

LCD Display. I got the Rebel T1i but the LCD screen won't view anythign unless I press the display button. How can I have the LCD screen on while I am taking picture? Please advise..thanks


The T1i does not have this feature, like most digital SLR cameras. You should just look through the viewfinder to take the photo, which gives you a much more precise view of the photo, where you can better assess the correctness of focus, etc.
This feature is called "Live View" and is available on some newer or higher end models.

How do I get my pictures to email or facebook


There's 2 ways you can get photos off of your camera, and onto your computer.

1) Plug the USB cable that came with your camera into the camera, and the other end into your computer.
A box will pop up asking what you want to do next. Choose "Open folder to view files". You should then be able to see all of the photos on your camera.

2) If you have a memory card reader, you can remove the memory card from your camera, and insert it into the card reader. Then you'll be able to view the photos in much the same way as in example 1.

Once you can see the photos on your computer, it's just a matter of attaching them to an email or uploading them to facebook.

Nikon d40 motnior blank while taking picture.


That's entirely correct. Live view cannot work on SLR's whilst the photo is being taken due to the requirement for the mirror and live view sensor to flip out of the way during image capture.

Live view on SLR cameras is a misleading description, it's really a live preview instead.

The 1GB disk, only takesabout 22 pictures beforeit says the memory is full


Check the setting where the pictures are being stored. It may be still storing to the internal memory.

Also check what resolution you are capturing your snaps. Although 22 pictures should not fill your memory but high resolution photos can take 5-6 MB /photo, so you can accomodate about 180-200 photos in 1GB. Try reducing the photo resolution, if you are not planning to print them.

Also, have you downloaded all the previous snaps from the card and deleted it from the 1GB card?

The size of the images are too big


Use your favourite image editing software in Vista. Or use the software that came on CD with your camera (if it is not the one that runs on XP only). Anyway as alternative solution you can either shoot photos in lower resolutions (1Mpix for example) and then the files won't be so big. But you will have only the small photo and no large one. Or shoot as usual, then switch camera to "play" mode and when viewing images on camera, there is a menu option to resize the images - you can resize them to 1Mpix for example. In the meantime search web for some free image editing software for Vista.
