What you're referring to is called "live view". The D40 does not have that feature. Althought cheaper point and shoot cameras do, your camera takes better pictures than all point and shoot do.

How do I make these Snapchat lenses work?


    1)Get your snapchat app updated. Visit the app store, hit updates from the bottom right, and presto.
    2)Now, go to settings on your snapchat home screen and turn "filters on."
    3)Open latest version of app and make sure your face and make sure your front facing camera is active. Now long press the screen on your face to load the lenses. You can scroll horizontally through them and for most you'll need to follow an instruction for it to work properly such as opening your mouth or raising your eyebrows.
    4)Get your selfie face on. Lenses

How to screen shot


On any computer including Panasonic Toughbooks,
to capture the image currently on the screen, please
press "SHIFT" + "PRTSC".

PRTSC= Print Screen

The to see the captured image,open PAINT under Accesories
and then press the "PASTE" button. This will copy the image
stored in the clipboard to the screen.

Finally, save the image either as a JPG or a BMP and
voila this is now a picture file that you can use in the future.

Good Luck.

White lines on image however when capturing on dark areas and on video mode, it produce a perfect image


Not clear when you have white lines. While looking on the screen or really on a image.
Lots of camera's produce lines on the LCD, when using the LCD to frame the picture. Special when there are small and sharp lights in the image. But the sensor is not capturing that while making the picture. It is a sort of smear on the screen.
Also, when you try to make a picture in bright lights, you can get flares, but those you can see on the screen and in the picture. To fight flares, most camera's and lenses come with sun hoods. Your camera does not have a hood, so try to avoid shining bright lights on the front of the lens.

Software that allows the user to "capture" or copy a section of what appears on the screen


If you just want to capture a still image of what is on your computer screen, you can use a free image editing program like IRFANVIEW.
You can download this free program at the following link:

http://download.cnet.com/IrfanView/?tag=mncol;1


Just click on the underlined text above to get to the download page and then click on the green DOWNLOAD NOW button in the upper left hand corner.
Then follow the onscreen instructions to install this program on your computer.
Once the IRFANVIEW program is installed, start it up and click on the OPTIONS menu at the top of the screen.
Scroll down and select the CAPTURE/SCREENSHOT option.
For CAPTURE AREA, select the #5 option - CUSTOM RECTANGLE / REGION CAPTURE.
Now just click on the START button at the bottom of that screen.
This will start your screen capture. First place the mouse arrow in one corner of the screen image you wish to capture. Now just hold down your left mouse button and move the pointer to create a rectangular capture area around that image.
When you have enclosed the area of the screen image you wish to capture just click the left mouse button once. This will capture that area as an image which is now ready to save as a separate file.
Now click on the FILE option at the top of the screen and scroll down to the SAVE AS option in that list.
Choose a file name for the captured image and a location on your computer to save that file.
That's it. You have just captured and saved a screenshot image which you can open with any image viewing software. Just repeat the process to capture additional screen images.
Thank you for using FIXYA.
Good luck and take care.
Joe.

When I push the power button the lense moves in and out several times then the camera just turns off. I tried charging the battery and holding the power button down for 10 sec. but still does the same...


The power button has two purposes explanable;
1. A firm press and hold would shut down the entire device, where would be common feature for the camera to perform a system check to include the lense functionalilty.

2. A gentle press and release of the same power button should capture a snap shot only after the camera has been powered on, by the similar process as pressing firmly the power button

Remember

Pressing firmly the power button would shut down camera completely after a system check if only the camera was on.

Pressing firmly the power button when the camera is off would turn on the device by performing a system check also.

Important note
The camera when powered on would have an indicator light of ready to capture snap shots.
The camera would autoshut down when left on for an extensive duration without capturing snaps.
The instance of such would generate a camera check once more before powering off completely


The lense adds to the cameras feature capabilities of acquiring images. a function of the lense is capture an impressive image where the mechanism of drawing closer to the object is made possible by a moveable lense. The Olympus FE-340 Digital camera is powered by a battery requiring sufficient energy for a snap shot. keep in mind that, the camera can perform without the lense. However, the device is designed to automatically responded whenever the lense is required.

Important note;
1 a solution to the camera is with the source of energy in which instance batter power.
2.Dislogde the entire power area consisting of battery, check for improper installation; reinstall the battery in appropaitely noticing the installation indications of power supply. Cover the battery compartment properly, and charger afterwords.

Caution
1.Charge the battery for the entire duration known of a full charge.
2.Unplug thereafter when the full charge indicator is visible.
3.Try on the device for improvement in situation by taking photo snap shots

How do i print screen on my acer laptop? i see the PrtSc button but it isnt working


It's NOT really straightforward, but is doable.
Here's How:
  1. Press the Print Screen key on your keyboard. It may be labeled [PrtScn].
  2. Open an image editing program, such as Microsoft Paint.
  3. Go to the Edit menu and choose Paste.
  4. If prompted to enlarge the image, choose Yes.
  5. Optional: Use your image editor's crop tool to crop out unnecessary portions of the screen shot.
  6. Go to the File Menu and choose Save As.
  7. Navigate to the folder where you want to save the image.
  8. Type a file name for the image.
  9. Select a file type.
  10. Click the Save button.
Tips:
  1. Hold the Alt key down while pressing Print Screen to capture only the active window.
  2. Generally the GIF format works best when saving screen shots of application windows. The JPEG format usually makes screen shots (especially those with text) blurry, blotchy and discolored.
Yes - the PrintScreen button is really mis-named.

You can find programs that do a far better job of capture screen images. Like this one.. http://www.etrusoft.com/

We have a panosonic projection hdtv and the msg on our tv said replace lamp and reset the lamp hour meter well we did that and now its kinda blurry/double vision i called the manufacture and said ill need...


In your tv the image is generated this way: the bulb makes the light; that light is reflected by a panel with a lot of tiny mirrors which generates a black/white image; that image goes thru a set of colored disks on a wheel that rotates which gives the image color; that image goes thru a set of lenses (called the image engine) and it's projected on the screen.
No convergence here - you see the fuzzy image because either the color wheel isn't aligned properly or (more likely) the lenses in the image engine are deformed.
The second one can't be fixed and replacing the lenses will cost more than the tv is worth. You might be able to realign the wheel, but this must be done by someone with a lot of experience and it will be costly.

Cannot see a picture through lense or view finder


I believed you got problem with CCD ( Coupler Charger Devise ) like image sensor it captured the image from the lens then process to your viewfiner or LCD so you can see the picture. Not much you can do it require a qualifier Technician trained from manufactory to repair. Depend what branch and model it would cost between $120 to S500 and some of them still cover that problem under warranty even your CAM is out of warranty, like Canon or JVC Check with them may be you are eligible for that
