    Camera faux shutter appears, then iphone closes.  No message why.  Downloaded to MacBook with option set to delete pictures from phone while downloading but still no access to this feature.




    Settings feature tells me that I still have 2.4 megs of memory left on phone.


    Would love you know why?


    Best regards... AMX

Hi, as it seems that it's a hardware problem you may buy the camera and replace it at this online store: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.12651
I have not done it, but I will.
Hope this helps

Posted on Dec 10, 2008

Solution:

Install another camera app from installer i.e. Snapture.
Take a few photos with it (at least 3 photos).
Your native camera application and camera roll should now be working again.

Note: Do not delete these 3 photos you have taken with Snapture or you will be back where you started.

That's a weird one that I have not seen. Best bet is to take it into an Apple store and have one of the apple experts fix or replace the phone. They're pretty good about replacing faulty phones. sorry, I couldn't be more specific but I've never seen or heard of this problem.

Hello I posted a problem but do not see any solutions, so I don't get it?
Anyway after many hours of google research, and going to shop in Bangkok that handles hardwear problems, they had found it was not software problem after all. The camera was replaced in 15 minutes at a cost of `1500 baht or about $45 and worked perfect.
So online I see many many people with this problem and six am looking not found one solution except the replacement of camera worked must have dropped it.
So you people out there this is my solution that worked for me, and i do not understand why people wrote a solution with no solution? am I reading this wrong? where is the solutions from the people except they say they have the same problem?
Good luck

    i don't understand i posted a solution number 2, i got a new camera put in and that was the solution,
    why do i keep getting notified of solutions or people trying to get a solution? don't they read the solutions that some people as I put in months and months ago? how do i get them to stop sending me emails that someone has a solution when i do not see any need.
    Get a camera put in and never had a problem again, simple as that.Ok good luck to those that do not read.

Photo transfer to pc


Transfer Photos from iPhone to MacIn almost all cases, the fastest and simplest way to copy pictures from an iPhone to a Mac is with Image Capture and Preview. We'll discuss how with both apps:
Using Image Capture to Import Photos in OS XThis is a fast and efficient way to pull photos off the iPhone, which treats the device as a digital camera:
  • Open Image Capture from the /Applications/ directory (or through Launchpad)
  • Connect the iPhone to the Mac through USB
  • Select a folder from the menu (default is Pictures folder) and then click "Import All"
  • OR: Select individual photos, and click "Import" to only copy those pictures over
You can also transfer pictures to your Mac with iPhoto or Preview, which is just as simple and actually has a virtually identical interface for initiating the transfer. Here is how to import with Preview:
Copying Photos with PreviewThough Preview is usually thought of as an image viewer, it can also serve as a fast importer:
  • Plug your iPhone into your Mac
  • Launch Preview
  • From the File menu navigate down and select "Import from iPhone..."
  • Select "Import All" to get all the pictures, otherwise individually select pictures and click 'Import'
  • Look in your ~/Pictures/ folder for the photos from your iPhone
Optionally: Click the checkbox with "Delete after import" if you want to delete the photos after they have been copied over to the computer.
The benefit of using either Preview or Image Capture is that these apps are on virtually every version of OS X since from the very beginning of the OS, so you won't find a Mac version without them. iPhoto on the other hand is generally limited to the consumer model Macs, thus making it not always available on pro models, but it does work as well, and iPhoto will also serve as a photo manager of sorts.
Transfer Photos from iPhone to PC (XP)Using Windows Plug & PlayThis utilizes the pop-up that shows by default in Windows when a device is connected to the computer by way of USB.
  • Plugin your iPhone to the computer without iTunes running
  • Wait for a popup asking you what you want to do with the device
  • Select "View Content"
  • Find your photos through the folders that are displayed
  • Copy the images from Windows as usual
Note that in Windows 7 and Windows 8 you will often find the iPhone mounted under "Portable Devices" but it can also be found listed under "Digital Camera". Opening either will work to copy the pictures over, but typically Digital Camera opens directly to the DCIM directory whereas Portable Devices will sometimes require minor navigation within the folder to copy the files.
Using iPhone as Digital Camera in Windows ExplorerIf your iPhone is already plugged into the PC, you can also try this method:
  • Open "My Computer"
  • Find the iPhone, it will appear as any other camera would
  • Open iPhone to find your Photos
  • Select the pictures you want to copy to your computer and copy/paste them into the desired location on your PC
The Windows approach treats the iPhone more like a file system, just like it does with standard digital cameras that are connected to a PC. That generally makes Windows even easier for moving pictures back and forth if you like to cut & paste things directly from one folder to another in My Pictures or My Documents. Nonetheless, you can also use your favorite photo importing application to pull the pictures from the device as well.
Remember, if the iPhone pictures are not showing up in Windows, make sure the iPhone is unlocked first. Otherwise the iPhone will be found in 'My Computer' but all of the content on it will be invisible and inaccessible. If you run into that, all you need to do is touch the iPhone, unlock the screen and enter the passcode, and all of your stuff will be visible as expected.
Finally, you can also sync your photos using just iTunes on either Mac OS or Windows but that is more for iPhone backup purposes and doesn't really serve as a means of accessing individual pictures.

On a Windows PC the easiest way to get pictures from your iPhone is to just use Windows Explorer, but there are two ways to go about this. In either case, unlock the iPhone before beginning, or else the photos may not be visible.

Iphone photos


opened iphoto and it gives "no items to import" ? if true try this. when iPhoto is open and your phone is connected, open the albumn of pictures you've taken with your iphone on your iphone. iPhoto should immediately recognize the new pictures you had taken and should indicate "x items to import." x being number of photos. An alternative to this can be If you individually delete the previously imported iPhone Camera Roll pictures using the trash can on the bottom right (touching the screen brings it up), iPhoto will then see the new iPhone pictures for importing. I believe this can be done without opening at the time of sync the iPhone Camera Roll picture album as you suggested. Give these a try and let me know.
