When I take a picture with my Nikon Coolpix L100 there are shadows on the right side of the picture any suggestions.

look at the lens and ensure there is no dirt - fingerprint etc on the lens. Otherwise, it is time to visit your local camera store.

Nikon d-90, shadows in pictures

if you're using pop up flash, you'll get more shadows doing a portrait shot than a landscape shot just due to the position of the flash bulb and the angle the shadows are cast.

Iam unable to view the pictures I took with my former Easyshare. It says unreconized-file format. Is there a way I can view the pictures taken with my old camera?

Many cameras will not display pictures that were taken with a different type of camera. You should still be able to view those pictures on the original camera, a computer, or a digital photo frame.

If I may make a gentle suggestion, use your camera to take pictures. To display them, use something better suited for the task.

Are you using a lens hood? That could create the shadow.

I just had the same problem. I sent the camera to the factory repair place and they fixed it in 5 days free. Even tho the camera is two years old and out of warranty.

Dark shadow on right side of picture

sounds like a shutter leaf dropping into the image. however, they are usually horizontal and more likely to manifest when in landscape mode. (horizontal, normal)
try using flash pointed up to ceiling.
also, could need to check for auto sync speed setting. usually 1/125 to 1/60. if its off, it could be catching the shutter in the wrong place.
check manual for settings for using flash.

E 18 problem

the E18 means the lens system has a problem. I had it with my S2 and sometimes it worked, sometimes not. Eventually it stopped working. The only solution was sending it to repair, they changed the lens system.

Best Regards

Canon Powershot A75 problems ________________________________________ I have a Canon powershot A75 Digital camera its about a 11 months old and has a few problems now. 1. zoom doesn't work any more 2....

Having read on a few sites about loose ribbon wires causing problems and having this same problem. I decide to take the camera apart. Taking all the screws out and fidling with the "wires" connecting the zoom control and the photo type selector and the main circ board. I also cleaned the connector from the picture type selector. Then put it all back together the camera works fine again. NOTES... lots of small screws with varying lengths make sure you know where they come from. Took about 1 hour to do.Put back in the order you take apart or the back will not go back on.. Good luck have just saved myself a fortune
