Question about Olympus Camedia C-8080 Wide Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

Freeze Up I just got my first digital camera, chock full of buttons, dials, wheels and screens. ;-) Anyway after a few hours of playing with it - it locked up...no buttons worked.(even the power button) I had to finally remove the battery from the live camera to reset it. Since then it has happened almost half a dozen times in the last few weeks. Has anyone seen this phenomenon ? Is there cure or is it necessary to send it for warranty repair.(return to store)

Re: Freeze Up

Sorry this post is probably way too late for fishi, but in case anyone else needs an answer; Yes. Return it to store. After carrying out a reset several times with the same result then unless there is a fault with the battery itself, the camera needs to be professionally serviced. Hope this helps someone :)

Why is my manual Mode setting isn't working


The NIGHT SCENE and NIGHT+PORTRAIT scenes are meant to take time exposures of skylines and city streets by leaving the shutter open for several seconds. Therefore, it is necessary to stabilize the camera by bracing it against something solid or - ideally - by using a tripod or camera clamp.

so play around with the shutter speed and bring it to above 100
The procedure is as follows:
  1. Set the camera's Mode Dial to the M (Manual) shooting mode.
  2. Using the Control Dial(big wheel), set the shutter speed to 100.
  3. Holding +/- button and turning the control dail will change focal length.
  4. Play around a bit with this too utill you find right lighting for the image you need.
  5. Remember slower shutter speed needs long time to process the image

To whom it may concern, Slightly blurred red/pinkish LCD screen when camera is switched on. If I look at pic's taken before this happened they look ok on LCD screen. 1 week ago I switched the camera on...


Do the pictures still look this way when they are downloaded to your computer or just when played back on the camera screen? Was the camera exposed to high heat (like being left in a hot car)?

Sony cyber-shot DSC-W50 digital camera when cutting on the on button on the camera it says turn the power off and on again.


You can try the following 2 ways: 1. Format and restore the initial value of the camera. 2.First open the battery box cover (notice: do not pull out the battery now), then start the camera, pull out the battery just after the Len has turn out. Install the battery a few seconds later. Now start your camera with the Play button which is next to the viewfinder boot, and then moving the hand wheel to switch to camera mode, after Image appearing the screen, the camera will work properly.

I have a canon rebel xsi, with a 75-300mm zoom lens. And I'm taking lousy sports pics, indoors and out. Help!!!


For sports (or any fast moving occasion) you must be very particular about your settings. The Rebel Xsi takes great shots, but some tweaking needs to be done on your end, to make sure you don't get the "blur" and low quality that you may be experiencing.

On the settings dial, turn the mode wheel to "Tv". This is shutter priority, meaning you are controlling how fast the "shutter" closes. You need to have it set higher because you are trying to "freeze" a fast moving object.

After setting the selector to "Tv", you can change the speed by moving the "control wheel" left and right. (It's located above the ISO button, below the shutter button". If you look at your LCD screen while turning the wheel to the right (it makes a clicky sound), you will see the speed increase.

By default, it is set at 1/125th of a second. Increase it (1/200th of a second for example) and try that setting. You should freeze your target without blur.

If you are indoors and need a flash, the speed will max out at 1/200th of a second. Of course, if you need the flash, you will manually have to pop it up yourself by pressing the flash button when in "Tv" mode. It has a "lightning bolt" and is located near the "EOS" sticker on the front.

Hopefully this helps you. Let me know!

Return to full auto setting


To set the camera to shoot fully automatically (camera selects f-stop, shutter speed, exposure, etc), turn to Mode Dial to the green rectangle icon, right next to the "P" on the dial.

To reset all settings to their original default settings, the procedures are on page 100 in the manual.
1. Press the Menu button and use the Jump button to go to the Setup 2 menu (far right).
2. Use the arrow keys to scroll to "Clear Settings" and press the Set button.
3. Scroll to "Clear all camera settings" and press the Set button.
4. Scroll to "OK" and press the Set button.

How tu use video recording..


Hi,

The picture that I posted shows a TZ3 mode dial. I added a blue arrow to point out an icon on the mode dial.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Turn the mode dial on the camera so this icon is selected.
2. Switch on the camera.
3. Aim the camera at your subject, press the shutter button halfway to focus, then press it fully to begin the video. (Just as you would take a picture.)
4. To stop taking video, press the shutter button fully again.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

~When a video starts being taken, its current length will appear on the camera's LCD screen.
~Videos take up more space on the memory card than do pictures.
~If an SD memory card becomes full while recording, then the video will stop automatically.
~Videos can be played back on the camera's "PLAYBACK" mode. They can also be viewed on a TV or downloaded to a computer.

Canon g9 image size


Are you looking at multiple pictures in the play mode? If so select one image and you should go back to the standard method of right and left clicking the dial. The mode your in you can use the scroll wheel to breeze through images.

Kodak EasyShare Z730 mode dial


Does the "unlock" button depress? When my dial seemed to freeze, or turn very hard, I lightly coated a small piece of newspaper with petroleum jelly (both sides) and slid it all around under the dial. This lubricated the plastic and made it turn freely. Good luck!
