Re: dark pictures

If it has the option to control exposure, it is probably set to underexpose

Maximum load to vq0701p 7" digital picture frame

What you call a 64 gigabyte flash memory stick, must be a 64 gigabyte memory card. You picture frame only can hold SD, XD, MS, MSPro and MMC cards.
If you look carefully on your memory card it will say SDXC and your frame is not compatible with these huge memory.
I know MMC, SD SDHC and SDXC all look the same, although the MMC has some more contacts on the back.
MMC is from about 8 Mega byte till 512 Mega byte.
The SD cards go up to and including 2 Giga byte.
The SCHC cards are more than 2 Giga Byte up to and 32 Giga byte The SDXC cards are more than 32 Giga byte up to and including 2 Tera byte. Although now there are none available of the highest capacities.
The cards not only differ in capacity, but also differ in working voltages and signalling voltages.
You can find all specifications of SD cards on the internet, but some computer knowledge and a little knowledge of electronics would be nice to read these papers.
The development of these memory cards is going so fast, because there are also speed issues, when you use these for stills or for video and so on.
I'm afraid you can't use your card for more than 2 Giga byte, if your picture frame allows that. But even I can't give any guaranty.

I managed to buy two 4 Giga byte SD cards recently, because I sometimes have to test older equipment. But these two are rarities. Most 2Giga byte cards in the shops already are SDHC, and perhaps will have the same problem, when you put these in your picture frame.

Downloaded pix from Rebel XT turn out really dark on my PC

Hi Dborror,
This is a very nice camera, it would not be good not to use it, because of a silly problem such as this.
The first thing to remember, is that the camera has a very bright light to look through the photos to prevent glare and other problems.
  1. Look at the histogram when you shoot, may need to compensate the exposure, make sure it isnt set to something by factory default.
  2. Another factor to consider with fluorescent lights is that they 'flicker' 60 times a second rather than being on continuously like an incandescent bulb. This isn't obvious to the naked eye but if your shutter speed is less than 1/60 it can, and will, affect your exposure.
  3. One of your problems is that you expect the result out of the camera to be perfect.With most digitals, and with this camera you might have to do the tweaking yourself, the odd time. Personally most of my shots come out a bit on the dark side becuase I know that is better than being over exposed and I tweak in my editing programs.
I hope I've sheaded some light on your problem, and if your problem persists I'll mess around with mine to ee if I can help you a bit more. Have a good evening, and happy new year.

I am trying to download photos to my pc. All plugged in the the Device Connected box ins blank. Any ideas - its driving me nuts!

OK, when I use my Kodak Easy share cameras on a fresh computer that hasn't downloaded Kodak pictures before I do the following:

Load Easyshare software onto the machine, and install it.

Then, I connect the camera to the computer.

Then, I open the Easyshare software and it may ask a few questions.

Next, I watch the computer (Windows 7) as it loads the proper driver for my camera.

Finally, I click on transfer pictures and I am set with my pictures.

The pictures should show up in the Start Menu's picture under Kodak Pictures.

You should be done.

Let me know how it works out with the Easyshare software downloaded to the computer before trying to load pictures on to the computer.

I just purchased a Powershot A1100 and cannot figure out how to load pictures onto the Memory card. Thanks

Are you trying to load pictures onto the card using a computer? It doesn't work that way. Format the card in the camera and have fun with your new camera.

Lines are appearing on pictures and sometimes the color shows as if it is on high saturation with very vivid colors

Please also try to upload new firmware: I doubt that it will solve the issue, but the alternative is a repair.
Connect the camera with the computer.
Turn the camera on.
Click onto the link and follow the instructions.

Software needed

If you have an XP Computer no software needed In fact it would have been best left in the box. Just plug the camera to the computer. Set the upload control Switch camera on And in my computer the camera will show as new removable drive Or a window will come up asking 'what the heck do I do with these pictures- and you click 'Send to folder

DSC-S75 - LCD shows better than actual pictures

could be a monitor miscalibration. Sometimes, pictures will be different than what it appears LCD monitor brightness cud be high and PC monitor brightness might be low... Did u try printing some of the dark pictures? if printed photos are different, then its defintely a calibration issue.
