    Mine started doing this suddenly as well.
    The memory card is fine, the batteries are fine.
    I tried to take a photo even with the black and pink lines. I got a photo of a black background with a pink stripe!

I recorded videos at a concert with the new nikon coolpix L810 and the sound on the video is horrible.What is causing the noise in my video? sounds like wind is blowing or a crackling noise


The problem is the microphone on the camera. The mic on the camera is for recording sound in more normal environments. The sound level on a typical concert is much higher than normal, and the mic on the camera just doesn't have what it takes to record sound at those levels.

One possible solution is to record the sound with a dedicated audio recording device, and combine the video and audio in your video editing software.

Settings I should set up my camera for a music concert? Especially for distance and movement of the performer


You're probably not going to get good pictures no matter what. First, you're going to be far from the action. You'll get pictures that will show that you were at a concert and not at a basketball game, but that might be about all. The SD1100's lens just isn't long enough to show the faces of the performers.

Second, it's going to be relatively dark. It may not seem that way to you once your eyes adjust, but it will be. It will be even worse once the lights go down and all you see is a spotlit stage. Your pictures may not show anything other than a white blob in the middle of black.

Having said all that, I'd go with Auto or Portrait exposure mode and sensitivity to ISO 1600 to try to keep the shutter speed as high as possible. I'd also turn off the flash---it's much too weak to reach the stage, all it'll do is light up the back of the head of the person in front of me. I'd leave the white balance at Auto unless the lighting is really weird, in which case I would go to Daylight to try to preserve some of that weirdness.

Don't expect too much. I wouldn't expect to get very good photos even with a bigger, more expensive and more capable camera. But I wouldn't let that stop me from taking photos.

At night and at concerts, the light level is low. If your camera is on auto, it will try to fire the flash. It's only effective for about 8 feet. Anything farther away than that will be dark. In these instances, it's best to turn off the flash, set the ISO to a higher setting, and set the white balance for tungsten lighting. You'll need to hold the camera steady but you should get better shots.

How do u turn off the flash on the olympus fe-170? im going to a clapton concert tonite and i need the flash to be set to off i tried everything and i cant turn it off....please help!...thanks!


Press Right-arrow (marked with the lightning bolt) repeatedly to select the flash mode. In this case, you want the lightning bolt inside a circle with a slash through it, indicating "no flash".

After the concert, don't forget to set it back to Auto, or the flash will never fire again :-)

You have to go to Menu and set up the Scene Mode as "Night Portrait" instead of "Default". Unfortunately you will have to do this every time you turn the camera off since it does not remember the change

Cannon EOS Rebel XS shows busy display stopped working


Just got a brand new camera. Played around with it a few nights to learn all the parts and buttons. Went to a concert tonite. While waiting for the show I took many test shots to see how the camera would work under these contiditions. Used a 75 to 300 Cannon lens. I had just got the settings about right when the show started. All of a sudden the display went dark and "busy" flashed in the view finder. But it would not take any more pictures. Taking the battery out and removing the sd card did not help. The auto focus and flash still worked but nothing else.
This camera is going back to the store if I can't get some help. PLEASE............. vj

Shooting mode will not operate


Your camera has a defective CCD imager. Please return the camera to Canon in New Jersey and they will replace the CCD at no charge to you. This is a known issue and should be covered under extended warranty. Good luck my friend. Joe Weibel customelectronics.org
