Hello, depending on the class he is taking you may find that a normal digital camera will suffice. Most camera classes and courses now use digital, unfortunately the old film cameras are becoming a thing of the past. If your son is a mad keen photographer then I would consider investing in his future and buy him a good quality digital SLR. I hope this is somewhat helpful.

If your son is not planning a big career in photography for himself like Alisha Spencer, then you should talk to him and ask him about his needs. Maybe it will be much more important for him to get more experience on a bad camera. I think that the main thing is to understand the root of the problem. Good luck.

How can I turn the flash off on a cannon power shot a400 camera

Your menus will have options to be able to turn off the flash in certain modes.
The camera also has external buttons which will turn the flash on or off. Read your user manual.
The button which has the SET inside has four selectors. The right selector has a flash on/off button to turn the flash on or off. The flash usually will flash when set to flash all the time and not in AUTO mode. The AUTO mode may not allow you to turn off the flash. You probably have to choose another mode to allow the flash to be turned off.

My camera is set on lock, how do I unlock it (fuji s5200)


Are you pertaining to the Focus mode? If so you can unlock it using the Focus mode selector lock switch. Press the Focus mode selector button to change the focus mode.

S-AF- Single AF
M-F- Manual Focus
C-AF- Continuous Focus

I would like to know more information regarding this matter.


Can't select Continuous nor BSS in Set-up for User 1,2, or 3

I had the same problem and just figured it out. Firstly, BSS won't work if NR is set to on. Turn it off and that should work.

Secondly, Continuous mode can not be shot in the RAW or HI image settings. Set the camera to one of the lower settings and give that a try. If that doesn't work, follow the instructions for updating to the latest firmware here:


That did the trick for me. I believe the problem has to do with the new memory card I started using. Good luck.

Turn the dial to setup, push the menu button & select reset all. This will restore the defaults & let you use the flash again.
