    Ekse suggested a tripod, but the camera has no attachment for a tripod. Help!

    Reply to Informatica; Have you ever used the Vivitar Camera Binocular? It is very small and extremely difficult to maneuver while trying to depress the tiny shutter button!

    Ekse's comments were posted earlier, and not in response to me. In fact Ekse's comments were posted before I had posted at all! I still need a response to my follow-up query of Informatica. Thanks.

    I hope Informatica can follow up with my reply to her/him yesterday. Or perhaps someone else can check out what I wrote to Informatica and answer that. Thank you.

Hi - I often use a bean bag to support a camera or Binoculars. You can place it on a wall or the top of a car etc. Perhaps another idea would be a "monopod" or even walking stick with a bean bag on top.
You can also use a modified sling as described on this link here.

Hope that helps!

I would suggest using the higher image quality setting, but there is not else you can do about the poor quality.

    The 640x480 which is the best setting the camera offers is really poor by todays standards. Last time I checked I saw this camera for sale around 20 to 50 usd and it really isnt that great of a product.

  • Ekse Aug 09, 2008

    But if you want to steady the camera.. A tripod would do the trick.

  • Ekse Aug 09, 2008

    Does the image quality improve if you let it sit on a table or a flat sufrace so the camera doesn't shake, take a picture and see the results?

  • Ekse Aug 09, 2008

    Well as you have noticed.. the product is pretty poor and hard to use.. I would suggest buying a better camera I know you wont like the suggestion but still theres not much we can do about it.

I have a hand symble on my Protax camera screen what does this mean?


This will happen in low light conditions. It means you should hold the camera very steady when taking a photo, as the camera will be using a long exposure, meaning the photo will blur if the camera is not held very still, or if something moves while taking the photo.

Nikon D50 Flashes Err and clicks


hi..
This screen shows areas of the photo that are overexposed slightly.
It flashes them to help you.
You get to this screen by pressing the up or down arrows when displaying the pictures you have taken.

To change it just press the up arrow when the camera is showing the screen until you get a display without flashing.

Once you have done this the display will be steady.
If you get any other screen in future you may have accidently pressed the arrow again.
Just cycle thru the displays to get back to steady.

thank u
rate me!!

Fujifilm S5000 model, works well but have picture problems.


You want to set the focus mode to S-AF, then move the focus mode selector to the lock position.
Hopefully that will fix the problem.

Taking photos with Kodak Easyshare Digital camera M753


with the price of the camera, there is a delay for any action shots.
you just have to adjust for the deplay.
on the other hand, the camera is getting cheaper, you should be able to pickup a decent camera around $200 that will take action shots.

Cannot get clear close-ups


Recommend not using flash. The first thing is that your subject should be well lit. Try placing it on a lighter background with good lighting around it. Also recommend using a tripod to keep the camera steady, and setting and using the camera's timer to take the photo (this also helps keep the camera steady). The closest auto-focused macro shot that the S200 takes is around 1 foot from the subject. Depress the shutter button halfway to verify that the subject is in focus (one of the three squares on the LCD should turn green on the subject). Next depress the shutter button all the way to take the photo.
