Lost my manual. My son borrowed it, returned and now I can shut off the flash. I used it primarily to take archival photos of my set designs of productions. The flash washes out colors and lighting. Help

It may be that your lighting settings on the camera could be off. Try a test shot with each different setting and the flash on to see if this is an issue. Also try performing a factory reset on the camera if you can

Flashing magenta screen, blue screen and shutdown


Your screen is bad more than likely. Try connecting another monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays and works ok, then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor displays the same as your original monitor, then the Video Card inside the computer is bad.

Flash is off during video mode


Remember, the A470 is primarily a still camera. The flash is designed to put out a very intense and very brief flash of light for still pictures. It is not intended for video. If you need additional light for video, you'll need a light designed for that. Such a light will consume batteries very quickly, if it isn't plugged in.

Why can't I use it as a webcam? I want it so much! :c


It was designed primarily to store 8 MP (and smaller) still photos to memory. It was not designed to stream .3 MP videos live to another device.

I know that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

I've mislaid my manual for my Metz 54. I haven't used it for a while and can't remember how I set the thing to shoot in ttl with my Fuji S6 Pro. When I'm in ttl mode on the flash the camera doesn't fire....


Not sure what S6 pro is, but if the flash doesn't fire in TTL then the flash is not support the type of TTL in the camera. I had the same problem with Nikon flashes on Nikon bodies. Perhaps you need a newer SCA adapter? Please go on http://www.metz.de/en/photo-electronics/sca-adapter/archive.html to check which adapter you need

When taking indoor photos, sometimes i get shadows on different placesof the photo


If you're getting shadows on the bottom center of indoor photos when take with a flash, it is most probably due to the length of the lens on the camera.

A long, telephoto / zoom lenses will create the largest amount of shadow, while shorter and wide angle lenses will be least likely cast shadows. You can reduce the amount of shadow in pictures by removing the lens hood that may be on the end of the lens. The lens hood is to primarily to shield the lens from direct (sun) light, and probably isn't needed for indoor flash photography. Also, rely less on the zoom function of the lens on the camera and physically moving closer to your subject instead. The flash will need to provide much less light output and result in more flashes per battery.

You could use a separate flash - held off the camera so that the lens is not obstructing the light of the on camera flash. Using a Nikon Speed Light, you can set the on camera flash to provide a low output, that would be used primarily to trigger a Nikon Speed Light held by someone or arranged on another surface etc. Youtube is a great source for real life, practical "How To" videos for many operations of the camera and accessories.

I hope this was helpful!

Flash use "kills battery dead"


The most likely culprit is a several year old battery that is not accepting or holding a sufficient charge. Turning the camera on, and taking a non-flash photo may not tax the battery too much. However, when the flash is called for, the power demand may exceed the battery's ability to deliver enough juice. A new(er) battery is probably your best bet to resolve the problem.

Lost pictures


Take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for:

You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're cheap:
