My camera is locked. The viewfinder doesn't show an image and there is no button to press that will take a picture. There is a large yellow dot to the right of viewfinder and when tap it it enlarges...


Either restart your iPhone, or reboot the programme. It happens a bit with the 4S, but even more so with older iPhones.


To reboot the programme on the 4S, this is what I do:


1. Double-press the round home button. This will bring up a row of apps on the bottom of the screen. These are the apps that are currently running.

2. Swipe until you get to the Hipstamatic app.

3. Push down on the Hipstamatic app and hold until it jiggles and a red minus sign comes up.

4. Tap the red minus sign and your iPhone will shut the app down.

5. Press the round home button again - twice.

6. Now tap on the hipstamatic icon to open it again - it should now be fine.

I have a canon powershot 750


An ideea would be pressing the button a little bit harder and a little bit longer.Most of the cameras have that orange light before the flash(that appears when you press harder on the button) to reduce the red-eye effect in the pictures.
If this doesn't work, look carefully in the manual or the settings of your camera and try to find an option that turns on the flash.Also the type of the picture(indoor, sunny, night etc) can automatically disable the flash.
As a last resort, here is the camera's manual
