Mac without ISB and F-505?

I have a G3 Mac (beige) that is pre-ISB. I am seriously looking at the F-505 but what's my best bet to get the images into my Mac? PCMCIA card adaptor and PC card reader? Any other ideas?

You can also look into the Keyspan USB PCI card. They are fairly inexpensive and work well. We have several installed in Macs where I work.

Re: Mac without ISB and F-505?

I use my Sony camaras (F55) with the PCMCIA card adapter. It works great. But now I'm switching from a powerbook to an iBook so I have to get a PCMCIA USB reader!! For you, I'd get the USB PCI card that goes into your mac and then find drivers for the Sony camara if they have them for the mac. Otherwise, go the PCMCIA reader route.

Trying to download pictures from my canon g3 not sure where the settings should be as in video system under tools which shows pal or ntsc and under communication either normal or ptp? tried different...


Page 157 of the User manual tells you about this. The video system settings are for connection to a TV and can be ignored. You should set the communication to "Normal" if you have installed the Canon G3 USB driver software on your PC. If you have not then communication needs to be set to "ptp". Note that certain file types cannot be transferred in the latter mode. It is best to keep the images as JPEG.

If you only want to copy the images from your G3 onto your PC, you can use the pre-installed Windows XP application (if you have that OS) for that purpose. If you need the full S/W package, please go to the Canon Website;

Stripy pics


Difficult to say without seeing a picture, but its most likely a problem with the image sensor, its associated circuitry or the power supply (within the camera)

Its unlikely fixable yourself and as all cameras with a built in flash have potentially lethal voltages inside I cant recommend opening it to have a look.

Some cameras of a certain era were fitted with faulty sony sensors some manufactures offer free repairs of this fault although in many cases the deadline has gone see http://www.adorama.com/catalog.tpl?op=NewsDesk_Internal&article_num=090707-3
Your best bet would be to contact nikon.

Best of luck

Canon powershot g3 no image on lcd


Assuming you are recording images on to the memory card[are you?]. Is is a 'peer through the screen to take model or can you use a normal viewfinder? If the latter I would learn to live without looking at the images ,until yo can see them on the screen[computer or TV] at home. Otherwise at this age it will be new camera time I feel, But do get onto Canon webs site technical support there may be a simple solution.

Mac and D770


I have the same camera and haven't found any software from Sony. Your best bet - and it's faster too - is to get a USB to Compact Flash and/or SmartMedia reader from one the the digital camera stores (Newer, Simple, SanDisk are a few brands) for less than $100, plus get a higher capacity Compact Flash or Smartmedia card. That doesn't solve the problem of using Memory Sticks - perhaps Sony will wake up and realize that serious users are using Macs! No big loss since Sony bundled only an 8 meg stick thou.

DSC F-505 doesn't support Mac OS?


SInce the only storage option on the F505 is Memorystick, you would need a memorystick reader. Sony has a MemoryStick/PCMCIA adapter card that would fit in standard PCCard slots. Once the images are in your computer they are standard JPEGs. Go to the Cybershot forum on http://www.mavican.com and ask what the F55 Mac users do. It also uses only memorysticks.

DSC F55 - Macintosh


I don't think as yet that it is possible to hook up a DSC-F55 via a serial cable to a Mac. And that's a f#$%^ SHAME! So now i'm waiting for a coolpix 950, and there's a long waiting list. The only solution on offer here now (that's Europe i guess) is a pc-card reader for memory sticks, but it restricts you to a powerbook. Boooooh!!! I guess Sony and Apple aren't friends anymore. If anyone disagrees i'd like to know.
