On my D-90, the camera is set by default to store two images of each picture I shoot...raw(NEF) and JPEG Fine.

The raw image contains far more data than the JPEG image and is therefore the best to use when you want to do extensive detailed editing.

The JPEG image is used when you only want to do minor editing before publishing or sharing the picture.

JPEG images deteriorate quickly when subjected to editing while RAW or NEF images can handle many more editing steps before losing quality.

If you're shooting snapshots, you probably don't really care about extensive editing and you can save a lot of space on your memory card by changing your menu settings to store only one image of each shot.


To do that, go to the wrench icon in the menu then scroll to image quality. Click on "image Quality" and you will find multiple lines to set the camera to your preference. Choose the one you want.

All of that data is stored with the picture. Transfer your pictures to your computer. Any competent photo cataloging program will show you the data. For example, in Nikon ViewNX2 if you double-click a picture, you'll see it larger and with a panel to the right showing the data.

Nothing or black screen shows up when pic is taken


The problem is with the software in the camera! So take your camera to the nearby service center and do a format of your camera! That will fix your problem. Also check whether there is any problem in ur LCD screen!

Nothing is wrong. The file names of the recent pictures probably duplicate those of your old pictures. Your computer is probably caching the images associated with those names until you double-click on them.

Since you declined to specify the type of computer and the software you're using, I'm afraid I can't tell you how to clear the cache. I also assume you're not really connecting your 35mm SLR camera to your computer.

Timer on samsung digital camera?


Sure ... be sure to use a tripod or other device to place the camera for stability.
  • Set the MODE DIAL to your desired photo setting
  • Press the SELF-TIMER button on the button pad (looks like a clock/timer on the right button pad)
  • There are three settings
    • 10 SEC - 10 seconds will pass until the picture is taken
    • 2 SEC - 2 seconds until the picture is taken
    • Double self-timer - a picture will be taken after 10 seconds, and then after 2 seconds a second picture will be taken.
  • Press the SHUTTER button to begin the timer.
  • Jump in the shot! =)

Setting the camera timer


Hi there,
by the way in setting the timer for your camera here is what you are going to do...

-turn the camera on
-set the camera in recording
-press the Right Button beside the menu button (the incomplete circle)
-and then you will see that there will an icon showing in the left side part of the screen of the camera.

Selecting the self-timer
1. Rotate the MODE DIAL to select a RECORDING mode with the exception of VOICE RECORDING mode.
2. Press the SELF-TIMER button until the desired mode indicator displays on the LCD monitor.
A 10 second, 2 second or double self-timer icon appears on the LCD monitor. In Movie Clip mode, only the 10-second self-timer will work.
•2SEC self-timer (icon of incomplete circle with 2S)
: Pressing the shutter button will allow an interval of 2 seconds before the image is
taken.
•10SEC self-timer (incomplete circle)
: Pressing the shutter button will allow an interval of 10 seconds before the image is taken.
•Double self-timer (double incomplete circle)
: A picture will be taken after about 10 seconds and 2 seconds later a second picture will be taken. When using the flash, the 2-second self-timer may be delayed for longer than 2 seconds depending on the flash charge time.
3. When you press the SHUTTER button, the picture will be taken after the
specified time has elapsed.

Developed Pictures


I didn't think double exposures were possible with digital cameras! You learn something new every day! BUT--to find out if it is the camera or some doofus who is sloppy making prints for you, download a whole bunch to your (or anyone's) computer, and see if there are any double exposures. I think whoever developed your pictures must have had one hell of a hangover. COMPLAIN. I bet they will send you redone and complete new copies.
