Question about Epson PhotoPC 750Z Digital Camera

Open Question

Epson 750Z won't take pictures with new 2gb Sandisk ultra II compact flash card. When I press the button to take a picture, the green light turns to orange for a long time. With the Ultra card in the camera, the lens takes a long time to return to the Off position after turning off the camera. It will still take pictures using a Lexmar 32mb card.

SOURCE: External Flash for 3000Z

I have a Metz Mecablitz 50 MZ5 which incorporates an automatic exposure calculation unit which mounts on top of the camera. I normally use this unit successfully on a medium format and 35mm camera which are full manual. Even with the correct aperture, film speed, lens zoom settings inputted into the unit the exposure is wrong with the Epson. The firmware inside the camera doesn't work in a linear fashion as conventional film so reciprocal calculations cannot be conducted ie: 1/60 f8 = 1/120 f6. There are look-up tables inside the camera that calculate the exposure in an Epson Digital Camera kind of way. Epson UK are currently investigating the actual values used and how the camera calculates them so I can compensate when using the flash. My advice to you would be not to buy a sophisticated flash for this camera. No information is passed to the flash which acts as nothing but a slave to the camera. Even with a guide no of 50 in my flash unit the pictures are always underexposed and the correct exposure is difficult to work out without knowing how it works in the camera.

SOURCE: Exposure number in Canon does not change

Due to the age of the camera, the Ultra 2 CF card may be using a different architecture than your other CF cards. In other words, the card is incompatible with the camera.

One other problem may be that the camera is not designed to recognize a card which is of a larger capacity.

As I cannot find the 300D on Canon's site it is difficult to find exact specifications as to the abilities of the camera, as to what type of CF card it will accept, what the largest capacity it will accept, etc.

A more fixable problem would be either that the card is not formatted properly - which may be possible through the camera itself. Please try to navigate the camera's menu to find a format option. If not, you can insert it into a CF card reader and attempt formatting it that way. Please see Here for formatting through a camera.

Also, try Here for yet another possible explanation of your problem, as #6.

If the camera is meant to take the capacity and type of CF card, and is not damaged, the only other explanation is that it is write-protected. As I do not know the exact features of your CF card, I cannot say whether or not it has a manual write-protection switch. If it does, it would be a small sliding piece of plastic or metal on the side of the card which toggles the write-protection feature. It may also be write-protected as a file system, in which case you will need to format it.

If the card refuses to format due to a write-protection, you will need to remove the write-protection from the card first and then format it.

The following picture shows a CF card with a write-protection switch on the left hand side.

Thank you and take care,

SOURCE: formatting an CF 4GB sandisk ultra II....How to do

The camera uses FAT16 so it won't be able to use cards bigger than 2GB. IF you can format it, you will only have 2GB space available.
Formatting the card: Press Menu/OK, select Setup, Select Format, press OK untill it's done.

Is there some sort of adapter for a sandisk Ultra CompactFlash 4gb, that i can use to put picutres on my computer?


The device:
Belkiin Universal Media Card Reader
Can be connected to your computers USB port and will then allow you to move pictures from the compact flash card to your computer.
After you connect the device and insert the card you will see a short delay and near the bottom right corner of the screen a message will appear letting you know that windows is setting up the new device. Moments after this completes you will see a new window popup asking what you would like to do with the media card. From the list select move pictures to my computer with the Scanner And Camera Wizard. During the move it will remove the pictures from the card and give you more free space for pictures if you click the checkbox labeled Delete Original Pictures.

If it is brand new, you have nothing to loose: reformat the whole card using FAT32 if possible.

Only can see 32mb of 4g, originally saw all of it.


Try reformatting the memory card in the camera after your next download of the pictures. that should fix it unless the card has failed.

Camera reads, computer doesn't


That is odd. Try the recovery software that comes with the sandisk cards and see if you are able to get them after that.
Do you format your cards each time in the camera before shooting?

My card won't work on my computer, what is wrong?


When you format the card, be sure to do it in the camera, as the camera firmware writes hidden files to the card.
When you insert the card into the card reader, be sure to set write-protect, so the contents cannot be corrupted.
I suspect what may have happened is that at some point there has been a conflict between files written to the card by the camera and the computer.

Sandisk ultra 2 1.0gb will not download onto my computer?


Inspect the camera itself under good light with a keen eye. You may find a pin is bent, broken or missing in the flash card compartment. This would require the aid of a camera technician to fix. If this is not the case though, then perhaps the card has become corrupt or faulty. I would suggest purchasing a leading brand card reader(eg lexar or sandisk) as they often come with image recovery software to help in these situations. Good Luck!
