Mismatch between viewfinder and photograph

When I position the object to be photographed within the viewfinder, the resultant photo cuts off the top and adds to the bottom. i.e. the viewfinder does not coincide with the photograph. It is the reverse of what has been reported above

Is your camera an SLR, if so then your mirror might be at the wrong angle, if that is the case then you need to have a specialist tilt the mirror, if your camera is not a SLR then this is a common problem when taking pictures from a short distance away from your subject, as the view finder is above the lense so what appears centered in the view inder will be much higher up in the lense, there are two ways to fix this, one is to use the LCD, or most cameras have correction marks in the view finder,and these show where the actual edges of what the lense sees are, use the correction marks.

If your using the A200, which has no LCD live view, the model has a wider angle in the view finder. The A300, etc, with live view, has a narrower field of view in the view finder. So, it may just be the design of the camera. This is assuming that you've had this issue since buying the camera and that you also don't have the image setting to 16:9, which could also cause this problem.

How can I multiple pics on one page ? thanks


Starting with Windows XP, Microsoft made it possible for you to 'right-click' on a photo, or highlight several, then right-click them, and begin its 'Photo Printing Wizard' (see instructions by clicking here). This 'wizard' will allow you any kind of arrangement, including montages, wallet photos, etc. Have Fun!

HOW DO I WORK A DIGITAL CAMERA?


STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR OPERATING YOUR FIRST DIGITAL CAMERA
1. READ YOUR CAMERA MANUAL before taking any photographs.
2. Check your batteries. Make sure to either recharge or replace them if you haven't used your camera as yet or for an extended period.
3. Insert your storage media card in the appropriate slot. If you forget to insert your media card, you'll get a "No Card" message.
4. Remove the lens cap.
5. Turn the camera on by either an on-off switch or a sliding lens cover.
6. Turn off the LCD. (See your camera manual for instructions)
7. Make sure your camera is set for automatic mode. Set the image quality to the size image desired-HQ (high quality) or less (to take more pictures on the same card).
8. Bring the camera up to your eye and look through the viewfinder. Positioning the target mark in the center of the viewfinder on your subject will assure that it will be in focus.
9. Push the zoom lever toward W (wide angle) to shoot wide-angle shots or push it toward the T (telephoto) to zoom in.
10. Press the shutter button half way down gently and confirm that the green light next to the viewfinder is illuminated.
11. Press the shutter button all the way down. You'll hear a beep when you take a picture. Wait until the green light stops flashing before taking another one. Remember, digital cameras have a slight delay that traditional cameras don't since it takes a second to save the image to your camera's storage media card.
12. Turn off the camera. Your new photograph should appear on your camera's LCD screen.
TIPS:
1. Use the viewfinder to compose your photograph, not the LCD screen, which will severely drain your battery power. Use your LCD screen only when shooting close-up photographs.
2. Hold your camera steady. Sometimes, the least amount of movement will cause your photo to be slightly blurred. Purchase a very small tripod so that you can provide extra stability for your camera. Also, if there isn't enough light (indoors or outdoors), make sure to use your camera's flash.
3. Experiment with your camera's features and take notes so that you can learn what works for you. Do this before you plan to use it for an important family event or trip.

Just bought an canon EOS300n, WHAT IS A-DEP FOR ON THE COMMAND DIAL ?


The Digital Rebel also offers Canon's A-DEP focus option. A-DEP mode attempts to include everything covered by the focus points in the viewfinder within the lens' depth of field when you press the shutter. This is a handy feature for beginning photographers who haven't mastered depth of field control.
useful when you are trying to keep 2 or more objects in focus when debth of field is different.

What are macro's what do they do...and what does


"Macro" can mean different things on different devices, but on cameras it's always short for "macroscopic".

Macro settings basically allow the camera to focus closely on a subject: to be truly macroscopic the size of the object in front of the lens should be reproduced at 1:1 scale or better on the film plane/digital imager. Most cameras cannot do this but many can achieve 1:4 scale; i.e. the image is one quarter the size of the object.

On your camera the icons next to the switch are showing you that there's a setting for close up images (the thistle) and one for distant objects (the mountain). All regular photographic lenses have a focussing range, usually from infinity (distant objects) to perhaps a few feet away. When in macro mode the switch moves the internal lens elements to shift the range closer: the camera can no longer focus to infinity but can focus to within maybe a few inches of the lens. The photographer just has to remember to cancel the setting afterwards and on most digital cameras there will be an icon in the LCD/viewfinder as a reminder.

I hope this has been of assistance, if so please return the favour by rating my answer. If not, then please add a comment to explain what you're still having a problem with along with the precise model of Vivitar camera and I'll be happy to offer further help.

Blurry Pictures


There are several factors that can contribute to getting better focus and improved results. 1. Auto Focus / Auto Exposure lock. Press the shutter button down HALF WAY. The camera will attempt to adjust exposure to the current lighting environment for maximum benefit. Then the camera will automatically correct the focus based on objects in the center of the display. If the camera can automatically set the focus and exposure, the LED by the viewfinder will turn GREEN. If the camera can not adjust the settings automatically, the LED will turn RED. This process usually takes about two to three seconds. 2. Be sure not to cover the sensor on the front of the camera with your finger. This will disable the automatic focus and exposure controls. 3. Only us the MACRO MODE (Flower Icon) for CLOSE-UP photography. Be sure to use MACRO MODE if you are taking pictures of an object at less than six inches away. Using MACRO MODE improperly will result in poor focus. 4. Rely on the Rear LCD Display. When in doubt, trust the LCD. The LCD will display the subject more accurately than the viewfinder. This will help with "framing" the subject, or determining if you have enough light for proper exposure. 5. Motion can cause a "blur" effect. Either motion of the subject, or motion by the photographer. This phenomenon is just like traditional photography. Moving objects may appear to blur, and this will be even more evident in lower lighting situations as the shutter speed slows down to allow for more light. The shutter will react faster in bright light, and motion will not be as apparent.
