Question about Sigma DP1 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Dp 1 doesn´t function when the SD-card was returned to the camera

Removed the Sdcard and used a card reader for transferring the photos to my computer. Then returned the card to the cameraslot for formatting. Alas, when I turned ON the camera, the lens opened and the lamp just outside the lcd-screen (upper right-hand corner) started to blink red and green and the DP 1 didn´t function. Holding the powerbutton down for about 5 seconds turned the power off, but the lens remained in the open position. Turning the camera ON again the lens retracted, opened and stayed open but the camera still didn´t work.

Why is my nikon coolpix L26 not uploading my pictures


First, use the review function to make sure your camera actually took the pictures. Assuming it did, I would remove the SD memory card from the camera and use a card reader to transfer the pictures to your computer. If your computer does not have an SD memory reader, many USB readers are available for under $20. They are USB devices and once they are attached to your computer and you insert the SD card, the computer will act as if the SD card is another external hard drive. You will be able to transfer your photo files from the SC card to a file on your hard drive via copy and paste or drag and drop. Although you can erase your card when you are done by deleting the files, it is better to put the card back in your camera and use the format function found in you camera's menus.

How do I import photos from my camera?


There are two ways to import your photos.
One, your camera should have an sd card which you can eject and put into your computer. The sd card should have all your photos and videos in it. Typically the card is located near the battery and you can press down on it and it should pop out. You may also need a sd card reader or micro sd card reader if it doesn't fit in your computer.
Second, your camera should also have a usb port, whether micro or mini or whatever. It should have a port to connect to your computer through a usb cable. In this case, just connect your camera to your computer and it should show up on your computer like an extra drive where you can go in and see all your photos.
Also, the folder that holds everything is usually labed DCIM i believe.
Hope this helps.

If your photos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

How can i transfer pictures from acer iconia to memory card


This Tablet Personal Computer [PC] takes Micro Secure Digital [SD] Cards. To transfer pictures from a Digital Camera to this PC, if the Camera also takes Micro SD cards, is simply a matter of removing the Micro SD card from the Camera and installing it in the PC's Micro SD Card Slot and then waiting for the PC's AutoPlay function to serve up the photo files stored on the card, which can then be Dragged and Dropped into a photo folder on the PC.


If the Camera takes SD Cards, then a Micro SD to SD Card Adapter is required so that the PC's Micro SD Card can fit in the camera before pictures are taken and then disconnected from the adapter afterwards, for re-insertion in the PC.


If the Camera takes a different type of Memory Card, then a Multi Card Reader might be required, which would be connected to the computer's USB Port and the Memory Card slotted into its matching slot in the Card Reader.

How do i upload pictures from my memory card to my computer without the cord


You will need an external card reader to do this. Assuming you have one on hand or have a card reader built into your computer; just take out the memory card from the camera and plug it into the external reader. Your computer will present you with options on how to transfer your photos.

If the "camera chip" you refer to is a removable SD Memory Card you need to put that into a SD Card Slot on your computer or use an USB Card Reader device. The computer will recognize the SD Card as a Disk Drive and you can use Windows Explorer to transfer the picture files to it.

That would depend on how the camera/card is connected to the computer.

If you're using the USB to connect the camera to the card, then the answer is "no." The camera functions as an expensive card reader, with "reader" being the operative word. It will not allow you to write to the card.

If you have the card plugged into a card reader connected to the computer, then the answer is "probably." Assuming the picture is as it was when transferred from the card (not edited or manipulated in any way) then you should be able to drag&drop it from the computer to the \DCIM\100NIKON folder on the card. You won't be able to do this using Nikon Transfer or most other picture downloading utilities, so open up a couple of explorer windows for the drag&drop.
