Hi there, i just bought a 60D and trying all the functions it has. When im on any creative mode and the lens is set to AF, i cant seem to take a picture or even adjust the AF mode. i even couldnt open the...

I don't think it is something you did wrong. What you can do is go into menu, and clear "All camera settings". This will set it back to default mode. Then try to see what does on af on lense. See if will work on mf mode as well.

Auto focus does not work. no af assist lamp camera is DMC-FZ7

you can use a laser pointer or mini flashlight point at the subject to replace the AF assist lamp. When the AF locked, turn the light off then press the shutter.

Camera xsi rebel 12.5 megapixel won't focus with

Most entry level SLR cameras will struggle to focus in low light, especially with the kit lens. By rights the flash should popup and emit a flash pulse to help focus. This is called focus assist. You might have to consult the manual to check if this function is turned on or not.

D90 AF assist light doesn't come one in M mode???

Check to see whether you're set for AF-C in M, A, and P modes. The AF assist doesn't light in AF-C. Auto mode automatically selects AF-S, so the AF assist would come on then.

My fuji finepix s 7000 has only been used for around 6 months--I'm now getting some shots blurred and out of focus and some are fine. I'm using auto everything as I'm not very bright about manual...

if there is a red AF sign after it focusus on the right of the screen, then the camera was not able to focus, so either point the camera at something a similar distanceaway from the object, then, holding the shutter button halfway down, turn the camera so that it is in the position you want, or switch the camera to manual focus (but im guessing that you dont want to do that) also the shutter speed might be too slow, if it is dark where you are, try a tripod or monopod, or go to S in modes, and increase the shutter speed (but not so much that the apeture turns red), and dont use telephoto in low light levels

When shutter depressed "AF" and "SB" LED's flash

My camera's shutter will not depress all the way due to a red flash light coming up all the time in the Flash-Ready indicator lamp (refer to pag 28 in the Nikon manual). It can be full sun outside but it will not work due to the red flash light coming on.

A work around is to select a flash mode of 'cancel'.
There is a button toward the front of your camera called the flash mode button. Click that until you see strike mark on the flash icon of your monitor screen (see page 32 in the Nikon manual).

The camera must have a malfunction of determining the lighting so it always thinks you need to have a flash on the picture. Of course this is not 'fixing' the flash/lighting issue but you can take typical day pictures for now with this work around.

Help with red flash?????

Do you mean, the AF Illuminator (the bright orange/red light that appears before the picture is taken)?? If so, all have to do is click on menu, scroll all the way to the right (into the setup menu) and go to the camera icon. From there, go down to the AF Illuminator and switch it from "Auto" to "Off".

Hope that resolves your problem!!

AF area mode problem

To answer your flash question...the Nikon flash system fires the flash when the camera thinks the picture will be too contrasty without the flash. You can Google for "fill flash" to learn more. This is usually beneficial; if not, holding the flash button and turning the main dial will cycle through flash options on the top screen.

W1 metering

Hi Richard I'm sure that after playing with the camera for a while you'll start having your own preferences but as a start.......... I use Centre AF most of the time so that I know where I am focusing. Multipoint AF for groups of people who are all at practically the same dist. from where I stand The opposite for metering I found that centre metering gets fooled by say the colour of the shirt that's in the middle. If it's black the camera will assume that the whole situation is dark, so multi-pattern is my usual unless of course you are very keen on a central subject and want it to be perfect diregarding the rest of the background My usual Iso is 100 outdoor and in normal indoor situations sometimes I go to 200 if I need a faster shutter speed indoors ... I used 400 once and got terrible noise but again I was still learning my settings and so I might try to give it a second chance. Auto works fairly well for iso 5 M is my prefered shooting , One can crop and work on the pic later , you know you can reduce the size to 3.2 M even in the camera if you want to, so unless you are very tight on memory space why take a less resolution pic ? If you like the pic later there's no way of making it look like 5M again By the way dont forget the white ballance (WB) it's very important in the overall quality of the colours and although Auto is not bad .. indoors the manual setting is better IMO You are right about the P and M modes but usually you'll play with M for a while then you'll start to depend on P more. Actually P mode is better than Auto and suitable for most situations I hope this helps a bit

Sequential shooting modes

There are four sequential modes: Sequential shooting, High-speed Sequential shooting, AF Sequential shooting and Auto Bracketing. Sequential shooting modes can be selected from the CAMERA menu: Sequential shooting: A maximum of 11 frames can be shot sequentially at approximately 1.7 fps in HQ mode. Focus, Brightness (exposure) and White Balance are locked at the first frame. High-speed Sequential shooting: A maximum of 4 frames can be shot sequentially at approximately 3.3 fps. Focus, Brightness (exposure) and White Balance are locked at the first frame. AF Sequential shooting: Focus is individually locked for each frame. The AF Sequential shooting speed is slower than for normal sequential shooting. Auto Bracketing: When Auto bracketing is set, exposure is changed automatically for each frame when you start shooting. The exposure differential can be selected in the menus. Focus and white balance are locked at the first frame.
