Question about Nikon COOLPIX L20 Digital Camera

1 Answer

The cord connecting the camera to the computer has never worked properly...now it doesn't work at all. When I contacted Nikon they gave me some generic download sggestion....didn't work...then they told me to go buy a new cord. I can't stand that kind of customer service. So how do I fix this or what other camera should I buy?

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

How can I get the latest firmware for Nikon D60


Go to the Nikon support at the Nikon website at www.nikon.com and look for firmware updates for your camera. There should be instructions as to how to download and install the updates in your camera. You will need the appropriate cord to connect your camera to the computer. Best I can determine the cords are standard so if you've misplaced yours, a similar USB cord that will fit your camera's port should work. You can also order replacement cords from Nikon.

Downloading pictures from coolpix l120 to hp laptop compaq presrio with only usb cord


The computer doesn't know what the camera is without the software. You can download the software from the nikon website. Easier fixes are available. If it is a notebook (laptops arent laptops anymore more) you should have a card reader slot on the left side of your computer. Remove the SD card from the camera and plug it into their computer. Then you'll have the option to import the pictures.

IMac deactivates USB port when I connect my Nikon P300


Try connecting the camera directly to the computer, without going through a hub. If that doesn't work, then buy a card reader.

Flash for mamiya 7


As with most cameras, the flash for a Mamiya is universal. Any flash with a hot foot connection will fit onto the camera, and function on the camera's shoe mount. You may alternatively use any flash which has a PC sync cord to plug into the PC sync socket on your camera, it just depends on whether you want to use a camera phycially mounted on your camera, or an off-camera flash.

The flash shoe on the Mamiya 7 isn't an "intelligent" type, meaning it only has the standard single contact and doesn't communicate any exposure or other information between camera and flash, so even the cheapest off the shelf shoe-mount flash will work just as well as the most expensive. Even specialized dedicated Nikon, Canon, and other brand "dedicated" flashes with multiple contact pins will also work, only the functionality of the information communicated through those other pins will be lost.
