You will get this message if the lens barrel is locked; push the lock/unlock button on the lens. Then extend the lens a bit, and that might take care of the problem---at least it did for me!

With the information you are giving, it's hard to tell if the camera can still be repaired, but it is likely still repairable. 1: When you look through the viewfinder, you don't see parts of the image sensors. Also the sensor can not really move as far as I know. It's more likely that either the shutter moved or the mirror moved. 2: When you remove the ...

Cameras are nothing, pictures are everything. The most important thing to do is to keep taking pictures. Rent a replacement unit. Get some disposable cameras if necessary. Verify the usability of the pictures that your camera now takes. But you see how this is point two right? If you haven't got a replacement for it, don't even bother investigating any ...

I was just wondering is it meant to be there or is it manufacturing error? It's definitely intentional -- it's the same in the viewfinder and on the top LCD on my Canon 6D. However, the icon on the Battery Info page on the main screen lacks the open spot. My educated guess is that the hole in the battery icon provides access for the conductors that ...

Some cameras from some manufacturers are not known for durability. Best to send it in for repairs. Who knows they might even fix it for free.

That's how it's meant to look. Refer the manual from Canon's website, page 23: Refer also p36: the top LCD should be the same.

All the editing and adjustments you make to an image in Lightroom aren't stored in the file. They're stored in Lightroom's database, aka the catalog file. This is the .lrdata file that Lightroom creates whenever you create a new catalog. The catalog also tracks where all your files are on the hard drive. Lightroom only applies all the edits and adjustments ...

You have a few options: Use Lightroom's export option to export the files to your external drive. This allows you to export compressed files like JPG, loss-less files like TIFF or if you want to keep the raw files you could export DNG files. DNG files are different from camera proprietary RAW as they store the raw data and the edits applied. If it's really ...

Lightroom uses non-destructive editing. That is, all the edits are stored in a separate files that is then read by the program. This means that to get a standalone file has all of the edits included you need to use the "export" function. This can be accessed by selecting the image/s that you wish to export and then: right clicking on them and clicking the ...

The 18-55 VR II (the current collapsible model) is a very fine lens optically, but in a cheap barrel. It easily outperforms the 12-24 at 24mm on DX when correctly focussed. If the autofocus works for you, it will outperform the 18-35. Wide angle lenses are difficult to manually focus - you will at least need an eyepiece magnifier. The D3200 does indeed have ...

Because the streaks are all in a perfect vertical orientation my bet is that the scanner is to blame. While it's possible for streaks to happen while processing the negatives I feel that's pretty unlikely to result in the same thing. And it won't be the camera. Possibly the scanner was not properly cleaned or maintained. The only way to be sure is to ...

Your lens is damaged. One of your images (shown below) exhibits an abnormal amount of spherical aberration. It is not the kind of softness you would get when out of focus. Also, notice that the bricks on the left side are significantly softer than the right side, which indicates decentering. Both of these indicate that one or more lens elements have been ...

If the flash is not blown, it most likely is wiring/innards that are not connected properly. To fix this you simply need to take apart the camera, locate and reattach said part — or take it to a shop.

It sounds like you might have damaged the 18-55 lens by twisting on the "wide angle" lens when your 18-55mm lens was set to autofocus. The force of twisting the screw-on "wide angle' adapter onto your lens with the focus motor connected may have damaged your lens' focus motor to the point it can no longer focus on distant objects when the wide angle lens is ...

Given that the HS300 is an ELPH, I think it's unlikely that there's a separate clock battery. Quite a few cameras don't have one. But if it does, there will be a separate little compartment in the battery compartment itself. (See: ifixit guide for replacing a clock battery on the A590) What's more likely to be the issue is that the spring loading on the ...

If you are using a microSD card with adapter, try changing the adapter. This solution works for me. I've found adapters from Adata and Kingstone to be corrupt.
