Question about HP Photosmart 735 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Memory Problem I recently won the first price in a photo contest and received my first ever digital camera. It is a HP 735, 3Mpix camera. According to specifications the built-in memory should hold 125, 19 or 12 pictures, depending on quality. My camera display shows, there is place only for 92(not 125), 19 (not 13) and 8 (not 12) pictures. I have formatted the memory, but there is no change. I have downloaded pictures in different quality steps and the results show the data sum up to 12 MB and not 16 MB internal memory as specified. My question is: Is this normal or is there something wrong with my camera's internal memory ?

Re: Memory Problem

These figures are for jpegs, right? Because of the nature of compression in jpegs, your camera can't know how many pictures it will be able to hold. If you fill the memory with photos of the inside of the lens cap in a dark room at night, you will be able to take far more shots than if you shoot at an outdoor market with lots of different shapes and colors. The specs, which are used to market the camera, will have a number on the high end. The camera, which has to allow for many different possible file sizes, will have a lower number. Try using the camera until it's full. You may end up with about 125 shots. On my Canon 10D, with an empty 1GB card, says I have 162 shots left. I consistently fit over 180 on it.

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 Windows Photo Gallery or Picasa.

After downloading your pictures, put the memory card back into the camera and format it. This will clear the card and prepare it for further use. FixYa is full of people asking how to retrieve pictures from cards that haven't been formatted recently.

What does unidentified image mean?


The card has become corrupted. First make sure that you have downloaded and backed up all the pictures that you wish to keep from the card. If your computer does not recognize them from the card, you may need to use recovery software. Here's some freeware that's very good:

http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/recovering-those-accidentally-lost.html

You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're cheap:

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_st?keywords=card+reader&rs=172282&page=1&rh=n%3A172282%2Ck%3Acard+reader&sort=price

The reason this occurred is that you likely never formatted the card. The card will work fine in the beginning but eventually will corrupt. AFTER you've recovered and backed up your photos, format the card in your camera to prevent this from happening again (dig out that instruction manual to figure out how). Keep in mind formatting will also totally erase your card, so again only do this after you've recovered the photos.
