Re: What precautions should be taken when using the...

In cold environments (winter outdoor, highlands), battery performance decreases extremely. We recommend keeping spare batteries in a warm place, such as the inside of a coat. (Batteries can recover their power when they warm up.) When taking the camera from a cold to a warm environment, place it in a sealed plastic bag to prevent condensation from forming. Allow the camera to come to room temperature before removing it from the bag.

What is the Meaning of turn the camera off remove the lens cap and turn the camera on'

Really it means what it says.
Switch of the camera, and switching it on again, will reset the program, like a cold boot from a computer. Perhaps the camera could not move the lens barrel and as a precaution it gave this warning. When you removed the lens cap, please check there is no mechanical obstruction on the lens. Then switch on again. When the error keeps coming back you should ask advice to a Nikon certified crevice centre close to you.

Refer to everything that has to do with battery. I wonder if you can see anything on the control panel. If nothing is there you battery is dead for sure.
If you can see symbols on the control panel, it could be your on on / off switch is defect.
The Battery
Check the battery level be focusing the camera and replace or charge the battery if necessary. Do not continue charging once the battery is fully charged as this will result in reduced battery performance. Whenever possible, carry a fully charged spare battery when taking pictures on important occasions.
Do not use the battery at ambient temperatures below 0 C (32 F) or above 40 C (104 F).
Charge the battery indoors with an ambient temperature of 5 C to 35 C (41 F to 95 F) before use.
Note that the battery may become hot during use; wait for the battery to cool before charging.
Failure to observe these precautions could damage the battery, impair its performance, or prevent it from charging normally.
On cold days, the capacity of batteries tends to decrease. Be sure that the battery is fully charged before heading outside to take pictures in cold weather. Keep spare batteries in a warm place and exchange as necessary. Once warmed, a cold battery may recover some of its charge.
Dirt on the battery terminals can prevent the camera from functioning. Should the battery terminals become dirty, wipe them off with a clean, dry cloth before use.
If the battery will not be used for some time, insert it in the camera and completely exhaust it before removing it for storage. The battery should be stored in a cool location with an ambient temperature of 15 C to 25 C (59 F to 77 F). Do not store the battery in hot or extremely cold locations.

When a photo is taken the image is over lit and whited out. Help!

If your camera suffered a hard impact or was smooshed by something it needs repair. Otherwise, here are a couple of suggestions before that;
- reset all features and settings to default settings. Your manual should guide you to do this.
Test camera with dark and light enviroments, as well as with and without flash.
If the problem still remains, try a reliable camera repair company. Teleplan Camera Repair will give you an immediate online quote and they also clean your camera as part of the repair.

What is the cause of fungus in my camera?

Have you ever used the camera in cold weather and then taken it indoors? Moisture can condense inside and cause mold.

My camera has been taking clear photos, but when I turned it on today, it is blurry - like there is a cloud over the picture.


Is the camera placed on a cold place and then taken outside a warmer place? This can cause moisture on the camera's lens. Have you tried wiping the lens already?

Also, try not to use the flash when taking the picture. This is just to test if the problem could be a flash issue.

Please post back.

My Konica Minolta Dimage z5 won't play back photos

What size memory card are you using? I have had this problem trying to use a a 4gb card, which apparently is not compatible with the Z5. Using a 2gb card seems to alleviate the problem.

Try out your "Best Shot" modes and see if you have a high sensitivity mode on that model. It works great for low lit areas. Other than that there isn't any kind of "auto light" that I know of on that model.

Digital camera care

Use these camera care tips: • Store everything together in a case for easy transport. Use a good padded case and strap. Not only do cases protect the camera but, as with most of HP's digital camera cases, they often have built-in pockets for batteries and memory cards. • Use lens caps to protect lenses when you're not using your camera. No exceptions. • Clean your camera and lenses often with a soft cloth. The autofocus, exposure, and viewfinder windows need to be clean for correct operation. Your camera likes weather that’s not too hot and not too cold. Weatherproof your camera with these ideas: • Let your camera case kick back under a light-colored towel when you're under the hot sun. • Keep your camera warm under your coat when it's chilly outside. • Bad weather and stormy seas can make for inspiring photographs. But if you don't take precautions, you'll have a wet digital camera with sand in every crevice. To protect your camera from water, cover it with a plastic bag. Just make a hole for the lens to poke through and secure it with a rubber band. Voil?: a little rain jacket!
