Question about Epson PhotoPC 750Z Digital Camera

2 Answers

"function" button Can anyone tell me what the "function" button does? So far, it activates nothing. I am assuming that it works if hooked to computer via serial/parallel cable. (I do not have the cable or manual) Am I correct? Also, how does one move the pointer that is in the top window? How does this camera do in regard to battery usage?

Re: "function" button

The main thing I have found the function button to be used for is to be able to set the exposure compensation. Most of the rest of the controls are done with the ESC and SEL buttons. If after you look at the links for the manual you have more questions just post them here at the forum. I am sure myself or someone else will be able to help you. The 750Z is great camera... enjoy. By the way get yourself some NiMH batteries. Don't waste your money on feeding Alkaline to this or any other digital camera. Alkaline are for emergencies only.

Re: "function" button

I dunno where my manual is, but the only time I use that button is when reviewing pictures in camera. If I want to delete the image currently displayed, I press "function" and "esc" instead of having to navigate all the menus. As for pointer in top window, can you clarify? Do you mean along the left edge of the LCD display? The arrow there shows up when you activate certain features of the camera. Manual white balance mode will bring up "WB" indicator, higher sensitivity the "ISO H", continuous rapid sequence shot mode the "Cnt" indicator. As far as battery usage goes, this camera can be a hog. If you run it with LCD and backlight all the time, you'll run out of battery in no time. I haven't timed it, but maybe two hours. However, if you make judicious use of power, it's lasted me a day of travel snapshots. Always carry a spare set of batteries though. Nice thing is if you run out, easy to find emergency spares at a store. I've been more or less satisfied with this camera. Image quality is good, low light sensitivity pretty good, size not smallest, but manageable, ok zoom. Pretty good all around camera, although current cameras of same new price range are now much better. I've been having some problems with the switch, and don't remove the memory card with the power still on!

Sounds like you forgot to use the "safely remove hardware" function once before and now the camera can't be recognized by computers. That's ok....happens to all of us. Just get a card reader and use it for downloads. It's far easier than the camera/USB system anyway. typrice_137.jpg

My camera says internal memory full. will not do any functions


You have to delete the pictures on the camera with it's menu buttons, or you can transfer them to your computer via the usb to camera cable. I don't have a Kodak, but there should be a button to view your pictures (refer to your manual). When you view them, you will have other function buttons to delete, or lock them. Then you just run through them, deleting the ones you don't want, one at a time. To save them, hook up the camera, without the memory card, and the computer will display the pics in the internal memory. Move or delete them. Oh, if you get a memory card, that would work too, in case you don't already have one. Hope this helps.

Hook up to usb port, nothing happens


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 Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

Bad USB conection?


Hi,
I assume that you are using Win.XP,
- did you check; System Properties>Hardware>Device Manager
Is there anything like yellow exclamation etc, especially on the USB section?
- Is it BIOS USB function enabled? Maybe disabled by accidentally.
- You said nothing working through USB, all ports are same?
If this ocurred all of a sudden, than I think you have a software problem.
I have a K100d, its been seven months now and ~6500 photo. My USB cables&fittings are fine, I always using USB port to transfer photos, no problem at all.
I hope your problem will be solved in a short time.
Sincerely

Zoom Browser EX software always fails to install on my Sony Vaio laptop


Reading wht you are saying I agree that the problem is not the camera, cable, CD, etc... but your PC.
I assume you wife's computer is also running on Windows XP.
Can you verify that you have the administrator rights on your computer? Go under Start, Settings, Control Panel, User Accounts and be sure that close to your name is saying Administrator like in this example 1ebbf22.gif Another things to verify is that you don't have The Windows firewall blocking your application, again go under Control Panel and temporary disable it.
Last but not least use the ZoomBrowser 5.8 or higher.
Let me know the result.
