The download from camera quit working


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

How long does it take for a vivitar Vivicam 5118 to charge fully?


Since the ViviCam 5118 isn't a battery charger, it will take a very, very long time.
The 5118 uses standard AA batteries. If you want to use rechargeable batteries then you much charge them outside the camera using a separate battery charger. Connecting it to a computer through the USB port will drain the batteries even faster, since the camera has to expend power communicating with the camera (even if only to say it has nothing to say).

Flash for mamiya 7


As with most cameras, the flash for a Mamiya is universal. Any flash with a hot foot connection will fit onto the camera, and function on the camera's shoe mount. You may alternatively use any flash which has a PC sync cord to plug into the PC sync socket on your camera, it just depends on whether you want to use a camera phycially mounted on your camera, or an off-camera flash.

The flash shoe on the Mamiya 7 isn't an "intelligent" type, meaning it only has the standard single contact and doesn't communicate any exposure or other information between camera and flash, so even the cheapest off the shelf shoe-mount flash will work just as well as the most expensive. Even specialized dedicated Nikon, Canon, and other brand "dedicated" flashes with multiple contact pins will also work, only the functionality of the information communicated through those other pins will be lost.

Alright so i wanted to know if i can charge my Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z700 Digital Camera without the actual charger but just plug it into my computer and it'll charger that way. i've tried this...


No. You need to plug the camera into the cradle and plug the cradle into a wall outlet. Connecting the camera to the computer merely drains the battery faster, as the camera has to spend juice communicating (or trying to communicate) with the computer, even if only to say it has nothing to say.

hi kbailey. Turn on the camera and go to the menu. find the reset function. Reset the camera. This means you are returning it to all of the settings it was at when it was brand new out of the box. Joe
Thanks for choosing Fixya!
