My olympus e volt 500 will not display image when in shoot mode


There is a little button on the back, marked 'info'. Press it to switch from picture view to settings view. It also operates the viewfinder.

Olympus also has a good photo editing program that is free and it allows you to edit photos and stitch pictures taken pn panoramic mode into one panoramic picture. It's called Olympus Master.

Non of the buttons/controls work. The camera turns on and can only view the last picture taken. It changes the camera mode but cannot focus, zoom or take pictures


a ribbon inside the camera had oxidised because i had left the batteries in the camera when it was not been used. This ribbon was changed and now it works.

When in Camera mode I focus and then prepare to take the picture but the as soon as I press the switch to take the picture the LG routinely switches from Camera mode to the Video mode. Why? I cant see


Well, this is the intended function of the button unfortunately.

If you press and hold down the camera button, it toggles between camera and video.
However I'm sure you have noticed that on occasion, if you don't hold the button down long enough, no picture is taken.

It turns out to be something you just have to get used to. There is like a 2 second delay on the toggle so just don't hold it down that long. It is hard to get used to if you are used to a red eye removable flash or a slow camera button as found on many new cameras.

Here is a tip though, after you take the picture to quickly take another picture, you can fast save the photo by pressing the camera button again instead of messing with the touch screen.

New EOS XSi LCD don't work


You have to set the camera to "Live View" mode. Check your manual for settings.
BTW, it's usually a bad idea to use Live View mode unless the camera is on a tripod. With Live View you have to hold the camera out in front of you and it's much less steady.

Cannot take picture


Check the switch on the side of the lens, it should be in "AF" not "M". The switch turns the motor in the lens on and off. If the switch is set to "M" the automatic mode on the camera will not work.

Pictures are blur


Hi,

Your pictures are blurry because the camera did not focus properly on the subject.

First, turn on the camera in any picture taking mode (or video mode), then look at the screen or viewfinder. There should be four white corners in the center of the camera display. This is your targeting area.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Aim the camera at your subject so this center area is directly on it.

2. Press the shutter button lightly, not all the way down. Wait for a second or two WITHOUT RELEASING YOUR FINGER. If the white corners turn green, keep the finger on the button and press it all the way.

(Once the screen flashes black, a picture is taken and you can release the finger).
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If the targeting area turns red and blinks, then the camera has not focused. You can to try to focus again by following step 1 and 2. If a picture is taken when the targeting area is red, then the picture will be blurry.

If there is no targeting area, then you can still focus by aiming the camera at your subject. Now follow step 2. A green box will appear on the subject, then a sharp picture can be taken.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The red arrow that flashes means that the pictures or videos are being written onto the memory card.

Also, try to be steady when taking pictures, because slight hand movement can cause blurry images too.

Page 25 in the DMC-FZ7's english manual will also explain how to focus.
