Camera shuts down when the flash is opened

How do all:) bit of a problem here i have a fujifilm finepix s1 pro I was taking photos and needed to use the flash after pressing the flash release the entire camera shut down and wouldnt come back on until the lithium battery cover was opened and closed, i have tried leaving the flash open still no joy so i closed it again then opened and closed the battery cover once again then the camera came back on, i tried holding down the flash and pressing the flash release the cam stayed on until i slowly let it get half way open could it be that my lithium batteries are not up to powering lense, shutter and flash, its not any knocks or been dropped as far as i know and no water punishment

I bought a S1 on ebay it came with the lithium pack and the watch battery, I put in 4 NmH batteries, and as soon as I tried to take a flash photo had the same problems. Just bought new batteries to replace the 3v lithiums in the camera. No more problem.

The flash circuit of the camera is short. the moment you switch on the flash it drops the supply voltages of the battery. you have to show it to a repairer.

My Fujifilm Finepix XP21 takes pictures but always blurry and not focusing? Any body

Have you tried focusing before you take a photo? To do this, press down the shutter button on your camera but don't push it far enough to take a photo. This enables the camera to focus on what it's about to photograph before you press the shutter button again and take the photo.

Fujifilm S1...after taking a picture, the camera will not transfer the image onto the microdrive??

First check with another Memory card. If you have the same problem with another one, remove the card, then check the card contacts inside the camera. They might not conduct properly, if you don't see anytihg out of the ordinary here, then I recomend you contact Fujifilm directly.

If the problem is on one card only, try to format it while inside the camera, then if It doesn't work try to format it on a computer.
If by doing this the card is still not working, it is certainly dead.

Hope this helps.

Taking a photo of another photo with the finepix z70

Place your camera in MACRO mode to shorten the focal length. Make sure your flash is off. You can zoom in a little bit, but the trick to using MACRO mode is finding how close you can get to the photo without blurring- it takes some practice. You want enough light coming over your shoulder so the picture is not dim, but no glare either. If you can prop your photo up at an angle so that you cand find the "sweet spot" that gives you good lighting and minimal glare, you are home free!

Fujifilm takes Disorted photos

How old are your camera and memory card? Both will eventually wear out. Digital cameras are generally good for so many shots. The same goes with the cards. I would personally try a new card and see if it helps.
