SOURCE: my iphone camera just shows a black screen when i

pls see this First !! B4 reset
Straight from Apple Iphone Manual
Camera is not functioning

  1. Tap Camera, then point and shoot. Note: If you take a picture with iPhone turned sideways, it is automatically saved in landscape orientation. If you do not see Camera on the any of the multiple Home screens, check to make sure that Restrictions are not turned on by tapping Settings > General > Restrictions. If they are, set Allow Camera to ON or tap Disable Restrictions (in iPhone 2.1 software or later).
  2. If that doesn't work, clean the camera lens with the cleaning cloth that came in the box with iPhone.

Do a hard reset. If you don't have firmware 3.0, get that too.

SOURCE: iphone got wet. camera shutter is stuck closed

you might have a lot of corrosion inside your phone.

try to open it up and clean it very well with alcohol.

the main camera does not work probably because of corrosion on its connector to the main board.

I have had the same problem. I backed up all photos/videos from the phone and then deleted them, then rebooted the phone (off/on). The camera functioned after that. Then I restored the photos to the phone.

I cannot take photos when i shot with manual mode.The shutter clicks but no picture is actually taken.Darkness.The auto mode works fine.Lens Nikkor Micro AF-S 105mm.Drives me crazy


When you shoot in manual mode, make sure your camera sensor gets enough light. When you shoot inside with dimm light at 1/1000 of a second or faster and a aperture of 8. all pictures will be black.
The best way to learn shooting in manual, is to shoot a picture in the P mode and put the picture on the screen (>) button. then select the info, where you see time, aperture iso and so on. and even better select the histogram. Note the figures in your head (or on paper) and then goto manual and make sure you have almost the same settings. Then shoot en look what the histogram shows. No histogram on the right, means to little light, so lower the shutter speed, open the diaphragm or increase the ISO. No histogram on the left, means to much light, so higher shutter speed, lower ISO or smaler diaphragm (the aperture number must be up. 3,6 is wide open 16 is almost closed.

Top 5 Tips to Ensure Great Smartphone Photography


You probably don't carry your fancy-pants DSLR camera with you all the time, but your smartphone--along with its built-in camera--is in your pocket everywhere you go. That's why these days the most popular camera used to upload photos to Flickr isn't a camera at all, but the iPhone.<br /> The challenge, of course, is getting great-looking photos from a gadget primarily designed for chatting. If you keep the following top 5 tips in mind, you can take some pretty sharp pictures with either an iPhone or an Android phone. Here is what you need to know (click all photos to enlarge).<br /> <img src="M900page_11-1.jpg" /><br /> 1. Know when the shutter clicks: If the shutter lags, you'll need to account for that. Some phones have a surprising delay after you press the shutter release. And if the shutter release is on a touchscreen (as it is on the Apple iPhone), the shutter probably trips after you lift your finger, not when you press down. Either way, hold the camera steady while the picture is being exposed. And don't jab at the screen, or the shake will blur your photo.<br />2. Widen the dynamic range: Some phones (such as the iPhone 4 and Windows Phone 7 handsets, to name a few), provide a High Dynamic Range mode that captures an impressive amount of detail and a range of tones and colors in a single exposure.<br />If your phone has a High Dynamic Range option, learn to use it.The effect is similar to the way HDR software can combine multiple photos to create one rich, dynamic photo. If you have an HDR option (it might also be called Wide Dynamic Range, or some similar variation), try it instead of the flash when faced with tricky lighting.<br />3. Use the flash to reveal daytime details: It's counterintuitive, but in daylight, a fill flash can be your secret weapon. It provides a burst to reduce the shadows that bright sunlight causes. Although the flash won't be powerful enough to fill every shadow, if you're close enough to your subject, it can provide pleasant, even lighting on your subject's face. Of course, the tiny flash on most cameras works only at very close range, so don't expect it to help unless you're within a few feet of your subject.<br />4. Start the camera faster: Some phones make it so hard to get to the camera that you might think they're, well, camera-shy--which could mean losing out on many a great photo opportunity. If you have a smartphone and the operating system allows it, move the camera app to a more convenient location.<br />Make sure you can access your camera quickly.On the iPhone, for example, ensure that the camera app is on the first screen, or put it in the quick-access area at the bottom of the screen. Some phones even let you reassign buttons to launch the camera.<br />5. Let the sun shine in: Your phone can handle a lot of situations with aplomb, but it can't shoot every scene you encounter. The teeny image sensor craves light, and does best outdoors, in daylight. For the best exposures, follow the same advice that photographers have kept in mind for decades:<br /> Let sunlight help your photography.Try to put the sun behind you or over one of your shoulders. Avoid shooting directly into the sun, or you'll radically underexpose your subject. If you're shooting indoors, put your back to the window and turn on the lights.<br />About author:<br /> Mattry, as an amateur of photography, also interested in multimedia software.

How do i transfer my facebook wall pictures on my iphone to my camera rool on my iphone


If you're using the Facebook iPhone app, you can look at a photo, click the "square with an arrow coming out of it" icon at the bottom left corner, and it'll have options, push "save photo" to save it to your phone.
If you're using the Safari web browser for iPhone, you can save a picture by pressing the picture for a few seconds until it brings up a menu which lets you "save image".

My Cannon Rebel EOS 35mm film Camera is producing blank Film


If you are getting some photos where only part of the image is visible, then I suspect that they were photos where you used a flash.

Cameras have a specified maximum shutter speed for use with a flash, this is called its 'sync speed'. This is the fastest speed that the camera will need to open the lead shutter and close the trailing shutter in order to expose the entire surface area of the image and have it evenly lit by the flash unit. If you shoot too fast of a speed, then the shutter will only be partly completed its exposure and you'll get a photo with only part of the image showing. The faster the speed past the sync speed, the less the resulting area of the image. Most cameras will have a sync speed of 1/250 or less. I think a lot of the Rebel models are 1/90 - consult your manual.

Very Bright Outdoor Photos with lines


The shutter is stuck. The electronic "noise" created by the solenoid trying to move the shutter blades causes the lines on your pictures. The bright outdoor pictures is due to the fact that the shutter is jammed open. You can try tapping the camera on the sides and bottom. This may jar the baldes loose. Failing that, you will have to find a shop that can obtain a replacement lens assembly for your camera.

Digital camera problem


The suggestion that it would cost a thousand dollars to fix this problem is totally off the mark. Your camera's shutter has stuck open. Normally when you take a picture the shutter closes blocking out the light and allowing the image sensor to record what it saw at the moment the shutter closed. When the shutter sticks open the images come out over-exposed and have lines across them because the image sensor is unable to properly record the image. This problem can be fixed with complete disassembly of the camera and lens assembly. The labor costs in the range of $89 to $145 and parts are not usually required. Check with your manufacturer for recalls and/or warranty support. If they cannot help you for free, there are repair providers which you can find online who will work on your camera for reasonable rates. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
