Question about Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Why won't my lense activate?

I just came back from a trip where I took over 400 photos, no problem. The other day I went to take a picture of my grandchildren, the camera took 2 pictures, then "locked up" It is like the switch that tells the camera whether to be in camera or review mode doesn't work. The lense does not make any attempt to extend. I have replaced the compact flash card and the batteries - made no difference. The camera works fine when trying to review taken pictures. The camera is just over a year old.

How to activate date/time stamp on nikon d90

The D90 won't deface your photos by scrawling a string of numbers across them. However, the date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every image in what's called the EXIF data. Just about any photo printing program will allow you to include some of this data when printing the photo. Depending on the program and printer, you can print this data on the picture, in the margins, or on the back.

Take pictures, reads unable to recognize files, and doesnt even show i have taken a picture

The camera may require manually opening the shoot lense to achieve flash to capture pictures. Observe the camera buttons for every complementary buttons that may require activation prior to photo shoots. Usually smaller cameras with lenses may require manual lense adjustments prior to every photo shoot.

I have a Nikon FE2 and i switched the lense out from a normal lense to a macro lense, when i shot the picture my went black. so i switch the detachable lense back to the normal lense and its still black!

have you tries changing the battery in the camera. if you try to take a photo with a dead battery it will lock the mirror up. If changing the battery doesn't make the mirror release turn the shutter speed dial to "B" and that should release the mirror

I took lovelly photos on a recent trip, yet when I went to download the photos to my laptop there were NOT on the memory card. I have not accidently deleted all the photos as there are some old photos on...

SLR's don't have hard drives. Buy an inexpensive card reader to download your pictures to a folder you create on your desktop. See if that works.

Got a problem with the lense

I had the same problem with mine after it had been dropped on the ground.  I undid the two screws at the bottom which holds the sliding lens cover on and took the cover off.  Check the small black lever inside.  It might be broken.  I replaced the part from an older model and but the cover back on.  I works fine now.  I hope this helps

Deleted Pictures

Your pics should be still there until you take more pics and overwrite them. Just remember not to take any more pics on that card just yet.
It's no problem at all to get them back. As an example, try the below linked freeware program. It's tiny to download (a little over 1meg), and very easy to use. You'll have your pics back in ten minutes after reading this:

Note that if this doesn't work directly with your camera, to then try it using a card reader.

Blurry photos

I have had the same problem and tried messing with the settings and found that if I used these two buttons ( IOI ) & the right click button, next to the menu button (it has a circle with a line and a dot in it) that my pictures seem to look better. But, I am not an expert, so I have to try different things for each picture ( I never had a manual), and am not sure what these buttons are for but them seem to help with the blurry pictures I was getting. I hope this helps. Konna
