Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P72 Digital Camera

2 Answers

I've tried my p72 and....

Hiya ppl! I went to camp last week and took piccies with my p72. Im pretty pleased with the results. But, there are some questions i need to ask and if someone can help me with it, it would be very very helpful! 1. From the time I press the shutter button, it doesnt shoot straight away, does it? I realise it flashes some flashes first for a couple of second then it shot. This isn't always convenient as I lost some precious moment because of this :( 2. My battery indicator doesnt indicate right. Sometimes it indicate the battery is half full, but when I turn it off and turned it back on again, it indicate the battery still full. Why is this?? And when will I know if the battery is almost flat or not if the indicator show it wrong? 3. Is it alright to turn it on and off often? Coz I didnt bring any extra battery so I want to save the battery. Besides when I dont use it for a while it will turned off automatically, so I have to turn it back on again anyway. 4. Apart from those, p72 was great. I took heaps of pics and it turned out great. Cheers! Nikita

I own the p72 too. It's much faster at taking pics when you manually set the distance ( 'program'-> focus). Turn also the red eye correction to off. Turn the screen off when you are not using it, it will save the battery. Turn also the 'power save to off if it shuts down too fast, and set the screen as dark as possible. It's a great camera, you 'll learn fast how to use it !

You may have the red eye reduction setting set to "on"......this will flash a series of flashes to try to condition the pupils of the subjects in your photos - you can shut that off in the setup menu....Even with that off your Sony is going to send out at least 2 flashes as it send one to meter the light in the scene and then another to take the picture. Turning red eye off though will help. Are you using rechargeable MiMH or Alakline batteries? If you are using regular alkalines then your battery meter may "wig" out on you as I beleive it is calibrated for NiMH and their voltage. You may actually be hurting your battery life more by turning the camera on and off so much! It takes quite a bit of power for startup and you will drain the batteries faster by turning it on and off. You will be better off just leaving it on in a lot of cases.

Do I really need a camping chair?


Yes!
Of course, you need a camping chair. This will let you sit peacefully and comfortably to enjoy the surroundings instead of sitting uncomfortably on the hard ground surface.
Let me tell you, if you are going for an Adventurous Camping, you will not only need a chair, a multitool kit will be required which would equip you with all the necessary tools and gear to achieve a safe and enjoyable camping.
Tools such as Firestarters, sleeping accessories, Survivor tools, radio, knives, bags, etc would definitely provide you a safe and aided camping scenario.

I have the motorola rival and just yesterday after doing nothing to damage it i pulled it out of my pocket and the screen didnt turn on but everything on the phone works except for the screen i can call...


mine did the same thing. take it to the store where you got it and they will give you a new one. apparently its happened before with the motorola rivals, something comes loose inside the phone. when you bring it to the store they should give you a new phone for free. but im pretty pissed off, because when i got my new one they transfer only the contacts. im pretty mad that all my pictures, videos,and ring tones/sounds are gone just because of motorola making me a crappy phone

I`ve set up my philips digital terrestrial receiver DTR220 and i`ve scanned for all channels, but i can`t pick up any because my aerial is not picking up any signal. I`ve tried different, stronger aerials...


I actually moved my tele to the other side of the room to see if it would work in a different spot and it took me ages to get some signal by moving my aerial around. The signal still wasn`t strong and i didn`t have alot of the channels and then i turned it on a few weeks after and it was working perfectly. Don`t ask me why! :s

1)error message upon clicking on an .exe/it says my Msinit.ocx is wrong/more details ff; 2) what program do I need if i wish to open a .ppl thingey


What was the error message, also you are stating only problems, not questions, please be more specific into what you want to do so people can help you.

the only solution I can think of for the OCX error is to re-register it

Go to 'Start' -> 'Run', type (or copy/paste from here) 'regsvr32 C:\Windows\System32\MSINET.OCX' and press Enter (a message box normally appears containing 'DllRegisterServer in C:\Windows\System32\MSINET.OCX succeeded.')

Also you might have to update your .net frameworks (check microsoft update.
