Question about Olympus Camedia C-60 Zoom Digital Camera

Flash standby symbol and orange light flash continuously

On startup the red flash standby symbol and orange light flash all the time so I presume it's failing to charge the flash. Sometimes it stops after a minute or two but resumes after taking a picture. The battery is fully charged. The only way I can use the camera is with the flash turned off.

Try another battery. Take the camera to a shop to try the battery before you buy just to make sure. Rechargeable batteries do eventually die, especially if you don't give them the full charge up time. If you only ever give your battery a quick charge you induce a 'chemical memory' which makes the battery work for only a short time despite showing a full charge.

    For some reason my camera has improved without me doing anything. It still takes about 30 seconds when first switching on but after that it's ok. I haven't changed the battery or any settings.

I purchasing this flash from b & h and want to know if it will sync with my studio lights slave function so both flashes will be fired at the same time? I figure I'll have to use the camera in manual...


Presuming you bought a shoe-mount flash for your Sony A900 and set the camera and flash to manual so there's no pre-flash to prematurely trigger your strobes, and presuming your studio lights have built-in optical slaves, you should be all set.

Canon flash does not work


The flash has to charge in between shots, so if you are not waiting long enough it won't charge and wont take the shot.

If you are waiting, Im not really sure...

Kodak Easyshare Z760 orange light flashing


The flash does not charge separate from the rest of the camera. Try cleaning the flash sensor on the front of the camera or the flash led may be bad.

Secondly, this light functions as a flash sensor which is trying to tell you that you need to use a flash although you may have the flash manually turned off. looks like a bolt of lightning with a circle/slash through it.

OLYMPUS 410


It is something that seems to be a problem with the Stylus 410s. Olympus will not repair them unless they are under warrenty, I've tried. My best advice, and what I am in the midst of myself (I have 2 of these with the same problem) is to file with the BBB. Perhaps if enough complaints come through, they will begin to fix the stylus 410 defect as they should. Good luck. =)

Pictures reddish or orange


Although normal room lights (tungsten lights) appear white to our eyes, their light is actually much "warmer" than daylight, giving a reddish or orange color to pictures. This happens with digital and film cameras. To prevent or lessen this reddish or orange color: If your digital camera has a selectable White Balance mode (check your camera's User's Guide) and you are not using the camera or external flash, set the White Balance mode for "Tungsten" light. If your pictures are reddish even when you use the camera flash or external flash, the room lighting is overpowering the flash. Try setting the White Balance mode for "Tungsten" and continue to use the flash. If your camera does not have a selectable White Balance mode, use the camera flash or external flash when taking pictures in lighting that makes your pictures turn out reddish or orange. If you can, turn down or turn off one of the room lights (without making the room too dark), or move your subject so that it is not being hit directly by the room lights. If you can, when taking pictures in the daytime, try opening any drapes that might be covering windows. Letting in natural daylight improves the color quality of the lighting.
