When i push the shutter button on my Av100 camera,it show me Image previwe screen.also when I push zoom in button,it also gave me the same screen.Bcoz of that,i can't get photos.help me.


I do not know any solution so far but try this if you want to use your camera like normal:

1. While in view/gallery mode, press and hold the view/gallery mode button.
2. press the shutter halfway. it should take you to shooting mode. remember to hold the view/gallery mode button.
3. use the camera as normal as long as you do not let go of the button.

to go to view/gallery mode:
just press the shutter button halfway from shoot mode without pressing other buttons.

I hope this helps.

Screen won't work


Hi,
There is a button that switches between the Eye Level Viewfinder (ELF) and the LCD. It is located on the back of the camera just above the screen on the right side. It has "ELF/LCD" on it. I only know this because I have the same button on my camera.
With the camera powered up. Push that button. If it works? Great! If pushing it doesn't work, A professional repair will be needed from Kodak.
It is a nice camera, so it may be worth the fix.Perhaps it is covered under warranty.
But first, unless you've already done it. Push the button.
I hope this helps and I truly hope the camera isn't broken.
Have a Happy New Year,
Best, Mark

Alright I am new to this camera. I need to know how to view taken photos and how to shoot video. I have a Vivitar ViviCam X327 10.1 MP Digital Camera. Thanks:)


Press the Mode button to toggle between the three camera modes. One of them is Playback, marked by a right-pointing triangle. Full details are in the "Playback Mode" section of the manual, beginning on page 30.

Press the Mode button to get to the Video mode, marked by a movie camera. Press the shutter release button to begin recording, press it again to stop. Full details are in the "Video Mode" section of the manual, beginning on page 27.

If you need a manual, you can download one from the manufacturer's web site at

Canon T90 eee


I don't have a T90 or an FD lens, so can only guess what this means. This is quoted from the T90 manual:

"When you use the stopped-down AE mode with the FD lens, do not push in the stop-down lever with the lens set at the "A" mark. If you do, "E" marks indicating an error will appear to warn you of incorrect operation (EEEE EE in the viewfinder and EEE on the display panel), and the shutter is locked.

In this case, either push in the stop-down lever again to clear the stopped-down AE or remove the lens from the "A" mark. The error display will then disappear."

The stop-down lever is on the lower left front of the camera, and is what is usually now called the "depth of field preview" button. The "A" mark is the setting on the lens for fully automatic aperture control.

I recently got my memory card developed at Wal-Mart and ever since I got the camera back home there is a big exclamation mark on the screen when I try to turn on the camera. I know this means card error....


Try formatting your card:

1- Press erase button and flash mode button on top of camera at the same time.
2- When YES/NO confirmation screen appears, press OK/SHUTTER button.
3- When formatting is finished, the exclamation mark will go away. Please note that all pictures on card will be erased.

Good luck!

Red dye reduction


Hi,
You can find your manual here....www.olympus.co.jp/en/support/imsg/digicamera/download/manual/zoom/man_c725uz_e.pdf

You find how to disable red eye function on page no: 63 in that manual.

For quick reference i am giving the details briefly,

The flash modes are as follows:

AUTO FLASH:

Automatically fires in low-light and backlight conditions.

RED EYE REDUCTION FLASH:

This mode significantly reduces
the phenomenon of “red-eye”
by emitting about 10 preflashes
before firing the regular
flash. This mode works the
same as the auto-flash except
for the pre-flashes.

To change between flash modes:

1 Press the (flash) switch.
● The flash pops up.
2 Press the / (flash mode) button
repeatedly until the desired flash mode
indication appears.
● The flash mode changes ,
● If / is not pressed within 2 seconds after the selection screen is
displayed, the selection screen disappears.
● To de-activate the flash (Flash Off mode ), push the flash back into the
camera.
3 Press the shutter button halfway.
● When the flash is ready to fire, the
(flash stand-by) mark lights.
4 Press the shutter button all the way.
● The flash fires.


Hope my info solves your problem,
Thanx for using fixya,
Good Luck.
