    before sony dsc h-7 i had HP m-517. so auto mode of shooting is something i know about. my sony dsc h-7 when shooting makes the portrait good but the backgroun blured and i'm not shooting with portrait mode. i think that problem that i have is in the focusing. the camera focuses on a portrait but not on entire image like background and other things that comes with the portrait!!! and in landscape mode is a bit better but almost the same!!! can you send me some more professional instruction manual concreet for dsc h-7 setup but i allready have that that goes in the pakage with the camera!

    Auto Mode (7.0)

    The only green icon on the otherwise cluttered mode dial belongs to the
    auto mode. The simple green camera icon is an oasis for beginners who
    want to avoid the camera’s many options and just shoot. In the auto
    mode, there are a few options that and be customized. Image size, face
    detection, burst, and red-eye reduction can be accessed in the
    recording menu. On the multi-selector the macro, self-timer and flash
    can be found. The exposure compensation can also be changed via the
    rotary dial to easily brighten or darken the image. This mode seems to
    work well in most situations.

    the auto mode option in your camera has the best setting for a ready to use situation , it's done by the manufacturer for customers convenient use. if this won't solved the problem just give me a feed back and i will try to give you more for another solution.

    DSC-H7 has only a record MPEG1 video at 640 x 480-pixel resolution at a frame rate of 16
    fps. This looks very choppy, so users will want to make an extra
    purchase to get a better frame rate. With the Sony Memory Stick Duo Pro
    , the frame rate bumps up to a television-quality 30 fps. Having to
    make the extra purchase is a little annoying, but it’s necessary to get
    a larger capacity card anyway because the included 31MB of internal
    memory certainly won’t be enough.

    so increase your your frame rate it can compensate too many activities regarding recording via video or picture taking in good performance and color view...

    using fine mode video in a recording manner uses a lot of memory because it is the activity from normal to make it fine as enhancement. in the normal mode is the manufacturers default usage using only the capacity to shot normally.

Need better instructions for Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V

The Sony website has a downloaded PDF manual that is very comprehensive, they expect users to get it themselves instead of providing it, maybe to save on costs. They can make corrections more easily this way also, if they otherwise print it beforehand with errors in it.

Cyber shot dsc-w1 stuck in movie mode

When you rotate the mode dial, does camera change the mode? Maybe it switches only between video and twilight modes and when you set the dial to, for example, Auto mode, it's actually in Video mode? I have seen problems like this before with these cameras, mode dial had to be changed. If so, you should contact your local Sony service center and ask the price. If they ask too much, you can contact me at and I can give you a better price.

Hope this helps!

Hmmm, for recording videos you just have to go to the movie mode and press the button
Photographies doesn't seem proper because of all the black dots on the LCD screen, once on the computer, they're good.
And maybe you can't record videos cuz you don't have a memory stick and you're trying to record on 640 MP fine quality. For that you have to get more than 128 mb on your memory stick.

Blank Screen and faulty shutter blades

I found out the hard way that you should never use alkaline batteries in a Digital Camera. I thought my camera had a fundamental flaw (power kept going off whenever I tried to take a photo or record a video and the shutter blades half closed) even though it was only 2 months old. I nearly wrote it off but all along the problem was that I was using alkaline batteries, which incidentally were enclosed with the camera in the box!! Once I switched to NiMH (Nickel) batteries the camera worked fine and the fault completely vanished! These NiMH batteries are avaiable in most electrical shops i.e currys/comet in the UK. They must be charged before use. They are more expensive than alkaline batteries (£8-£9 for 4) but as they are rechargable they last a long time.

FD73 Photo Quality

I'm guessing, cause i own a F505 and not a FD73......but, I dont even see a use for the F505 "standard" quality setting. It will stay on "FINE" quality always. I've got a HP 882c and it prints just fine. I use HP premium photo paper and the printer setting BEST. Are you using photo paper? Regular paper will bleed the colors around. Take some pictures on FINE and print them out on photo paper w/ printer BEST and compare.
