I don't have a C1, but in all probability it's the EV (exposure value) compensation adjustment, and should be variable between about +2 and -2. Usually the middle/zero/auto/normal (whatever they call it) setting is fine, but sometimes you want to overrule your automatic exposure settings, which are intended for an average-brightness scene. For example, a photo of a dazzling white snow-covered field will probably come out a soft, easy-on-the-eyes light gray unless you kick up the exposure a notch or two. Try taking your camera to an unusually bright/dim location (a beach, inside an old church) and take the same shot five times, with EVs from -2 through 0 to +2. Then look at the resulting photos and decide whether the effects are pleasing/useful or not (warning--sometimes automatic photo processors will try to reset the picture to average when they print the photo, so you may still end up with minimal differences in the shots). A good beginner-level explanation of EV compensation is at <http://www.imaging-resource.com/ARTS/EVCOMP/EVCOMP.HTM>.

Good luck!

Lenny

Turn off Timestamp


Are you sure the time stamp is visible in the pictures, when you put them on a computer or when you print them?
I only see the time stamp visible in the play back menu.
To change that, you only have to press the display button, when viewing the pictures you took. Don't be afraid to lose the date and time, because it is in every picture, hidden for sight, but always there if you want to see it.
If this is not what you mean, please let me know, I will search more.

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Andrea
