Sony DSC-W12 Camera

Can you help? When I take pictures on the W side of the zoom scale, the trim it, to the T side, the pictures are normally beautifully clear, but if I take pictures on the T side of the zoom scale, then try to trim it and bring it closer, it is not clear. Is this normal with this camera, or is it a problem? I also have a problem with the white balance. If I adjust the camera to cloudy, I would have thought that the picture would have come out lighter, but in actual fact it comes out darker - which seems strange to me. Regards Trevor

The W12 must be a European version of the W1 or W5 camera. The W12 is not available in the USA. It sounds like you have the "digital zoom" feature active. Digital zoom lowers the quality of the photo. It (in effect) reduces the megapixels applied to an area of a photo. Digital zoom should not be used if you want quality results.

DSC-W12: the batteries last only a few minutes before they're drained. Camera draining batteries very quickly.

If its a Lithium ion battery(similar to a mobile phone battery) then open battery compartment, clean battery contact points and try again after recharging the battery. If the camera uses AA batteries look for the current ratings on the side of the battery, generally digicams need batteries with more than 1200 mAh (I use a 2000 mAh for my Canon SX110 IS digicam). This current rating may vary for different manufacturers.

The zoom lens does not retract on dsc-w1/w12

I've had the same problem on rare occasion. Usually, I just wait a few seconds, then turn the camera on... wait a few more secs, turn off... repeat as necessary. When all that doesn't work, I've replaced with new batteries & the problem is solved.
