How do I remove Sammi James from FIXYA. Sammi has been spamming FIXYA for years - one of the best spam experts ever!


My apologies if this message finds you long after posting this problem , but I am currently working through a backlog of problems that never got answered and hopefully this info can still be of use if not now possibly in future.

Please download Disc Digger HERE. This is a free tool you can use that works very well and there is no installation required, just run the program once you downloaded it.

Once you have connected the memory card to the computer via either the camera or preferably with a usb card reader , run the program.

On the program , select the dig deep option for accidentaly deleted files or dig deeper for a formatted card. Then select the card you want to do the recovery on and run the program.

The data will be displayed and you can recover it from there. This will only work if the card has not been used since the pictures were lost. Save the files to a location on the computer hard drive and not back to the memory card as this will overwrite the other pictures that still needs to be recovered.

Some of the properties of the files may become lost in the recovery but the pictures should be fine.

Feel free to ask if you need more assistance.

Kind Regards

Picture is shaking in low light

Yes, low-light photography is difficult, precisely because there isn't much light. In order for the sensor (or film, for that matter) to record what little light there is, the shutter has to stay open longer. This gives the subject more opportunity to move, resulting in blurring. Worse, this gives the camera more opportunity to move, resulting in more blurring. The situation is much worse in a compact camera such as the S860, which has a much smaller sensor than a dSLR. In order to pack as many pixels into a smaller sensor, each sensor is less sensitive to light.

If the subjects are not too far away, and at more or less the same distance, you can use flash, either on the camera or off. If the subjects are too far away, the flash won't make any difference. If the subjects are at differing distances, nearer ones will be much brighter than the farther ones.

You can raise the ISO to make the sensor more sensitive to light. This also increases digital noise. How much noise is acceptable is your call. You'll have to take the S860 out of Auto mode for this, though, and the results will still not be as good as you'd get out of a dSLR.

The best way to stabilize a camera is to use a tripod. Failing that, you can use a table, railing, window sill, or other steady surface, in conjuction with the self-timer. By using the self-timer, you give the camera an opportunity to quit moving after you pull your hand away.

None of these suggestions will make low-light photography easy, merely less difficult. Entire books have been written on the subject of available-light photography, your local public library may have one or two.

Can i recharge rechargeable batteries that are in the camera s860 using a USB connection to a computer

No. The S860 uses standard AA batteries. If you want to use rechageables then you must charge them outside the camera using a separate charger.

Just switching off and on is not enough. You could try one step further. After switching off, remove the battery and memory card for a little while just a few seconds should be enough. To make sure the memory card is still working, put it in an external memory card reader and look on the computer you still have pictures on it. If the card gives an error in the computer, try recover software, to retrieve your pictures. If the card looks ok, replace the memory card and the battery and switch on again. But also make sure the battery is charged. If after this still the same error occurs you should visit a repair centre, or start saving for a new camera.
