Question about Olympus Camedia D-40 Zoom Digital Camera

Open Question

D40 Zoom and Camedia Software

I make no pretensions towards being an avid/professional photographer - I just wanted a small/portable point-and-shoot digital camera which could take, to my eye, excellent photos with a minimum of fuss. I have a question about the Camedia Software which Olympus ships with their digital cameras. Apparently, the "Camera Settings" portion of the software is only compatible with cameras with a serial interface. The D40 is a USB/auto-connect camera and the Camedia Software basically treats the camera a simply a mass-storage USB device. Does anyone know if there is a way to get the software to recognize the camera, or if there are plans to modify the software in the future?

You can find the software for the Olympus Camedia C-3030 Zoom HERE.

Best lens to add to d40 nikon to take baseball picture from dug out


So many people are browsing for the best D40 lens to take baseball picture i will give you some information about this topic i am not a professional photographer

if it's played on a full sized diamond you'll need 300mm if shooting from on the field/dugout. 200mm isn't long enough to shoot corner-to-corner. Realize though if it's not sunny at that time of day (i.e if it's overcast) you'll be shooting at 1600 to get needed shutter speeds at 5.6

IS is not necessary but USM is. THe 70-300 is the best choice for your needs as long as lighting is good.


hope this information will be help full for you

Olympus Camedia D-560 Zoom camera opens but won't zoom or shoot


Hey Realblond,
I would try resetting the camera back to factory specifications. You can do this by selecting mode reset under the shooting mode menu. If this doesn't work I would have it looked at be an authorized service technician.

Sincerely,
Allan

Type of battery


The Ni-MH batteries are recommended for the active photographer. The NI-MH batteries are rechargeable, economical and work well in low temperatures. The LB-01 CR-V3 Lithium Batteries are recommended for the less active photographer. They are lightweight, non-rechargeable batteries that provide hours of shooting.

Shooting modes


The Shooting modes are as follows: Program Auto (Factory default setting) Used for regular photography. The camera automatically makes the settings for natural color balance. Other functions, such as the flash mode and metering, can be adjusted manually. Portrait Suitable for taking a portrait-style shot of a person. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. Landscape Suitable for taking photos of landscapes and other outdoor scenes. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. Night scene Suitable for shooting pictures in the evening or at night. The camera sets a slower shutter speed than is used in normal shooting. If you take a picture of a street at night in any other mode, the lack of brightness will result in a dark picture with only dots of light showing. In this mode, the true appearance of the street is captured. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. If you use the flash, you can take pictures of both the subject and the background. Self Portrait Enables you to take a picture of yourself while holding the camera. Point the lens towards yourself and the focus will be locked on you. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. The zoom is fixed in the Wide position and cannot be changed.
