Dear friend, take your lens off, turn your camera to M for manual, rotate the main comand dial till you see the word BULB, press down the shutter button and keep holding it down, use a hand puffer, not canned air and gently puff some air into the camera. Very important, the lens opening must be facing down so any little debris will fall directly out. Let go of the shutter button when finished and replace the lens, repete if needed. You can buy those little hand blowers or puffers at any camera store. Hope that helps, Barry fossils@rapidnet.com

Okay, this is simple. Your camera can take several pictures at one time in a burst. However when you release the shutter button your processor takes a second to actually SAVE the pictures to the card in the camera. One thing than has helped me in my wedding photography business is to buy the fastest speed cards I can find. It significantly reduced my "busy" time.

EOS400D digital, I cant see the subject through the lens, I have taken the lens cover off


Hi Carol,
There are two things that I can think of which will prevent you from sighting through the view finder.
1. When your camera is switched on for live-view shooting mode or vice versa. That is, you can only see the subject in the LCD screen or through the view finder one at a time.
2. If you are using the LCD screen to frame your subject and you encounter this problem, it is most likely caused by the settings of the camera. Try increasing the ISO to around 400 or above, reduce the shutter speed to anything below 1/20 and the aperture to around F:5.6 or less (that depends on your lens.
Hope you resolve the problem by now but if you haven't try those tips.
Regards.

Why is there nothing showing in my lcd after I turn camera on?


This is an indication that the LCD is not functioning. You haven't indicated the make and model of your camera but if it has a view finder, try taking some picture and view them in a computer. No view-finder? Just point and shoot some subjects and view then from a computer.
Are the pictures OK? If they are than you might want to maintain that style while looking for replacement parts of service tech.

I just put new batteries in my N65. I haven't used it in a while but it appeears to be working proper, ie the lcd comes on and indicates full battery and the view finder symbols are nice and bright green...


What I'm thinking is the shutter and or the aperture ring is lazy. Move the aperture ring up and down several time see if the little ring next to the the camera body is responding quickly to the change.
Do this without film in the camera.
What I'd suggest is setting the camera in "M" mode aperture at F8 manual set the ISO at 100 and the shutter speed at 1/60 shift the camera into manual focus. The shutter can be in AF-S (single frame with each depress of the shutter). Trip the shutter and listen to it work do that a few times (maybe three) then set the speed at 1/125 do the same test listen the shutter should sound faster. Repeat the test at 250 then 500 then 1000. Then start backing down to 1/60th again, listen to the response. In all manual mode the shutter has to fire it it isn't or the speed doesn't increase and then decrease then the shutter needs service.

How do you take a picture of something moving with olmpus sp 800 with out being blared


Move the camera with the subject and snap the picture. You can set the the speed and the aperture to accommodate the problem. You can also set the focus to the center of the view finder and isolate the subject that way. Mind you if you do what I have described the background will be un-focus. This is a great affect of isolating the subject while in motion. Good Luck!

Text is not normally displayed on lcd


Are you saying the aperture numbers are not being displayed on the camera LCD or view finder? If so it depends lens and camera. Some cameras and lens connect, but do not an electrical connection. Some of the newer Nikon cameras are not designed to work with some lens. Now, if that lens works on another camera of the same type then the camera needs repair. Sometimes cleaning the contact at the opening of the lens mount does the trick.

When I turn the camera on, the view finder is blank or black. When I click to take a picture, it goes through the motions, but the picture is blank/black. I can view my saved photos on the memory card...


Sounds like a bad CCD sensor. I've seen the same problem in several brands of digital cameras (Canon & Sony). Better off replacing rather than repairing.

Cannot Wind nor See Thru View Finder


Whew!!! Many things to check. It sounds like the camera is not opening the lens up between shots. It could be a linkage issue. Look into lens while its on the camera. can you see the blades of the aperture? Turn the aperture ring. Any change? It is supposed to stay wide open except during exposure. Remove the lens. Move the lever on the back of it. See a change? Does it snap when you move it? If not, then the lens needs repair, not the camera. I forget...does the XGA have a DoF preview button? If so, its likely on front at bottom of lens mount. Push and release. If its in Preview mode, the lens remains stopped down(not wide open)based on the setting of the aperture ring.

How to KNOW the light is right 4 an Olympus OM20 Manual camera?


OM-20 was basically a upgraded OM-10 with the manual adapter built in and a number of other refinements.

The viewfinder has LED's to show the shutter speed recommended by the camera's lightmeter for the ISO and aperture selected. It also has an exposure compensation indicator (the +/- symbol) and an indicator for flash ready which doubles up as a post-exposure flash confirmation. There is also the indicator lamp to show manual mode has been selected. OM-10 lacks the manual mode lamp and the +/- indicator.

Like the OM-10, the OM-20 is primarily an aperture priority automatic camera. In this mode you set the ISO film speed, choose which aperture you wish to use (with the ability to use the lens depth of field preview button) and then the camera selects the correct shutter speed. The +/- exposure compensation control allows the user to tell the camera to modify the recommended shutter speed by up to two stops either way.

In manual mode, there is no manual metering. The light meter behaves exactly as it does in aperture priority mode and the viewfinder shows the recommended shutter speed and not the manually selected one. Correct metering is therefore a case of adjusting the aperture first, and then choosing the correct shutter speed indicated in the viewfinder. If the user then decides to select a different shutter speed, then the aperture ring must be adjusted to maintain the correct exposure. For example the aperture is set to f8 and the camera recommends 1/60th of a second. The user decides that a faster shutter speed is required and chooses 1/250th, but the viewfinder remains showing 1/60th. In order to keep the same exposure value the user must open the aperture by two full stops to f4. The camera's light meter will detect the new aperture setting and providing the light on the object is unchanged the viewfinder shutter speed display should now show 1/250th as well to confirm the correct adjustment. Alternatively, the user can choose the shutter speed first by looking at what has been set on the control ring (or by turning the ring to the end of its travel and then counting the clicks from there as all experienced OM users do) and then turning the aperture ring until the shutter speed shown in the viewfinder matches what's been manually set.

It all sounds clumsy and complex but is done far more quickly than I've taken to type this and becomes second nature.

Aperture priority metering is selected on the camera by choosing AUTO on the mode selecter. In this mode the shutter speed ring has no effect and the viewfinder always displays the automatically selected shutter speed.

My Minolta Maxxum 3Xi has a dark picture in the view finder. It won't focus on anything because everything in the view finder is dark, if not completely black. I was told it might be the aperture ring. ...


The aperture ring is the right diagnosis. The aperture mechanism has a broken piece that can be repaired by a competent repair shop for under $75. There are no parts available for Konica Minolta cameras since Sony bought them - the part can be rebuilt.
