20 Most Recent Olympus Camedia D-40 Zoom Digital Camera Questions & Answers


Camedia software leaves a lot to be desired. I prefer to use a USB media reader and Google's excellent Picasa software to manage my photos.

Brocken sensor or catch on the cover Check the cover and see that there is a catch that goes into hole- it has probably broken off and therefore not making contact. If so thry a match stick or similar into the hole TThis will [hoepfully put the warning out even if the cover is open. If so leave it at that. If not a repair shop job- but warned big bucks just to look and parts may not be available

The CD-ROM provides a full Reference Manual in PDF format on the CD-ROM. Adobe Acrobat - which is provided on the CD-ROM - is necessary to view the PDF manual. The printed manual that is included with the camera is a "Basic Manual".

With the provided Olympus CR-V3 batteries, you will get approximately 300 images under normal use. Using the Olympus Ni-MH batteries, you can get approximately 120 images per charge, and with alkaline batteries you would get approximately 30 images.

The cover opens in two positions. To completely open the lens cover for shooting images, slide the lens cover over until you hear two clicks. When the camera is on the first position, you can playback images.

The pixel mapping function checks the CCD and image processing functions. For optimized results, be sure to activate the pixel mapping function only after the camera's power has been turned off for at least one minute following shooting or playback.

Always charge batteries before using it for the first time, or if you have not used it for a long period. 3 months is a very long period. Always charge sets of batteries (2 or 4) together. Make sure your rechargeable batteries are all good. One defect in a set is killing for the whole set Don't use barrettes from different sets or brands together. I had one brand good NiMH batteries and a very expensive charger from the same brand. The charger destroyed all my rechargeable (more than 60 now). When I first discovered the batteries were dropping out, I stopped using the charger, but it did not prevent all batteries to die in the following months. Every time on dropped out I had to change the set. I tried using up the others by grouping the ones with the same Ri, but not longer then a few months and I had a box full to trow away. Never use a quick charger, capable of charging them within an hour or faster. Us a charger that indicates the Ri is still low enough, so you can see what batteries are bad. Check you are using a charger for NiMH batteries. I would try another set (new) because buying Alkaline is also not cheap. I used 2700 mAh and later 2600 mAh rechargeable, all dead now. since a few weeks I'm now using 2300 mHh from another brand, costing 1/5 of the "best" I had before, and they are doing great. I won't charge them with the quick charger. Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries in electronic devices. These batteries are only to be used in flash lights.

This 14 year old camera, does not have a zoom lens. It has a 5,5 mm lens, giving it a angle of view of about a 35 mm lens of a Full frame camera. However, you should be able to zoom digital 2 times. I can't find a manual, to help you on this, but the quality will be the same as cropping into a frame on your computer. So if you do put the pictures on a computer, you also can "zoom" in to the parts you want. Be aware a 1 megapixel camera, does not offer that much of detail.
