The largest size is 16 mega pixel. But they used to say it only could print up to a certain size. But in programs like Adobe Photosho, after you edited the image you can set the size. Then the program, will render the image to that size. Within limits off course. Don't try to make a 30 ft or 10 meter picture from a 1 mega pixel picture. I have printed A0 pictures from a 16 mega pixel camera and they look great.
The longest distance is as far as the camera can look. Most of the time our atmosphere is limiting the distance. And zooming in to the max, can give blurred pictures when you use a low shutter speed. Don't use the digital soon, because it is the same as cropping in Photoshop. When you did not use the digital zoom, you can reframe the picture and choose a better cut later. When you want to start photographing, this bridge camera could be great to start, but perhaps you also consider buying a cheap DSLR, or a mirror less system camera, because the bigger sensors in these cameras give better pictures when you have not the optimal light. When you want to use the full length of the lens, stay with this camera, because long lenses on a DSLR or system camera cost a fortune.

SOURCE: my camera is a dxg digital camera and its stuck on busy mode and doesn't know how to fix it can u help me?

busy mode? First thing I would do is reset the camera. This is a fairly easy procedure which involves either going into your setup menu and choosing "reset," holding down the menu key for 5 seconds, or, removing the batteries for a few minutes. It may be that the firmware loading got corrupted and the camera just needs to be "rebooted," which is something that turning it on/off won't accomplish. But after which, you should have the camera reset to factory default settings.

SOURCE: What advantages does an obtrusive, baulky

Several reasons.

Interchangeable lenses. A wide variety of lenses are available for the pro bodies, ranging from ultra-wide fisheyes to super-long telephotos. Also macro lenses, defocus lenses, tilt-and-shift lenses, and others providing capabilities you just don't get on a compact camera.

Larger sensor. Smaller cameras by necessity have smaller image sensors. Packing the same number of megapixels into a smaller sensor means that each pixel is smaller. This cuts down on its light-gathering ability. Larger sensors are more sensitive to light. Trying to match the higher sensitivity on a small sensor leads to much more digital noise. In general, if you take the exact same picture with a pro camera and a compact camera, the picture from the pro camera will be of higher quality. Of course, if you never print your pictures larger than 4x6 or 5x7, you may not see the difference. But if you make a three-foot poster, you'll see the difference.

Larger sensors also allow the photographer to reduce the depth of field. One of the factors controlling depth of field is the lens focal length. Small sensors need shorter lenses, and short lenses have wide depth of field.

Speed of use. Compact cameras tend to be designed for the non-professional. They tend to be easy to use, automating many features and providing menus to hold the user's hand while guiding him/her through the non-automatic stuff. Pros don't need the hand-holding. They want to be able to control everything, or at least be able to if they need it. Rather than making choices in a menu, it's faster to just press a button and turn a dial. Of course, with all the settings possible, you need more buttons and controls, and you need a bigger camera to hold them all.

Unless I've left out something, I think those are the main reasons pros put up with the expense, bulk, and weight of their cameras and equipment. If anything I've said is unclear, please feel to free to respond with any additional questions.

You don't need any special software.

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). 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, despite what I said first, you can use any photo management program such as Picasa ( ).

GE X400 just stopped working

First check the batteries (are they fully charged, are they inserted correctly). Next connect the camera to an AC adapter (if available). Try to turn the camera back on. If it works, then try different batteries. If the camera is still not working, after checking the trouble shooting section in your camera manual, call the camera manufacturers support desk.

I have a GE X400 When I turn it on the lens extends out and stays in that position. It will not shut down either and the screen is black.

I also encountered the same problem on my camera. I pulled the batteries out and put them back in. I haven't had it happen again.
