I want to buy a digital camera in range of 100 for personal use, can any one advice me to suitable one.

Many thanks

Preferred Solution: Digital Camera for £100

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Digital Camera for £100

what sort of photography are you after doing??

i would say at that budget - just make sure if it has a zoom it is an optical zoom - you can do anything a digital zoom can do after wards with an editor (most are free irfanview, PSP7, the gimp)

I think 7dayshop had some offers on recently for canons etc

(Edit - Subject should read 'Microsoft Camera Wizard does not work anymore with Canon digital camera')

I have a Canon SD 700 IS digital camera bought about 15 months ago. Until recently, I could connect it to the USB port (same one each time and that port is not used for anything else) of my Windows XP PC (1 year old, bought new) and the Microsoft Scanner and Camera Wizard would appear allowing me to use that software to transfer my digital pictures to my PC. Now, that does not work. I tried reinstalling the Canon EOS utility that came on a CD with my camera - no success in getting pictures transferred with that. The only way I can get the pictures to transfer, is to open Windows Explorer, the camera shows up under My Computer, but if I right click on Get pictures highlighting the camera listing, after multiple trys and 30 minutes, I get the few dozen pictures to transfer.

Anyone know what to try? I am suspecting it has to do with a recent overhall of my PC anti-spyware and security software (details below) as was using Lavasoft and Spybot before and found them becoming less effective. My computer is anti-malware free as far as I know from anti-spyware scans with multiple products (at least twice weekly) and real-time protection and anti-virus scans a little less frequently which Zone Alarm has never from day one found any viruses.

The computer is recognizing the camera in the USB port (it is enabled) and camera powered on and has no issues when taking pictures.... Read more

Hi, I'm having trouble with my digital camera software and/or transferring pictures from my camera and dock to pc. I have a Kodak cx7525 digital camera. The software loads normally, but when trying to open the software or trying to transfer pictures to the pc, I get an error message that states a .dll file is missing. The dll file is LOCACQMOD.DLL. I contacted kodak and they sent me new software but that didn't help, still get the same error message. The camera works fine but cannot get the software and camera to work on pc. I have searched for the dll file but cannot find it and have no idea what it is or what it does. I'm guessing something is missing from the pc instead of the camera software. Any help is greatly appreciated. I have family photos stored on it that I would love to be able to save them and not lose them. Again, thanx for any help I can get. You guys and gals are the best.

I recently purchased a digital camera for ordinary use with my pc. Everything seemed great until it was time to connect the camera to the pc - directions: "connect the USB end to any USB port on your pc" I have a reason to believe I don't have a USB port.

I know I must clarify that my computer is extremely outdated by today's standards. It has Windows 95 and is about 5 years old.

My main problem:
I have a digital camera with no way of transmitting my pictures to my pc for viewing and sharing.

I did some research. Along with my camera I have a 32 MB memory card. I went to the site prescribed by my digital camera manual and I found this:


By chance, would I be able to put the memory card with my pictures on it into this card reader and would it work? It says it is compatible with Windows 95.

The type of dig. camera I have is an HP Photosmart 318.

I am extremely grateful for any tips or help anyone has to offer. Thanks a million!

I have an older Sony digital camera and I have had no problem downloading the pictures from the camera to the PC which is 8.1. Now I have windows 10, and win 10 does not recognize my Sony camera anymore. I've heard it is a common problem, but I'd like to know what people are doing to get their pictures off their camera now?

When I plug in the camera, the pc ding a lings, but when I go to file explorer it shows everything on the pc like normal. I click on "this PC" and it shows the c drive and the DVD . No removable drive like camera. I've done a google search and it is a common problem with win 10. But what is the answer?

I just purchased a new digital camera and when I went to install the driver cd that came with it, it said the driver is not compatible with my version of Windows (7). Is there anyway that I can find a new driver? I'm not very knowledgable with drivers and if this possible. Or if not a driver is there anyway that I can get the photos off the camera to my computer...took alot of photos I don't want to lose.

The camera is from a company called Digital Concepts, the driver cd has a company called Sakar International on it. I hope thats all the info that would be needed for someone to help me!

A:Digital Concepts Digital Camera

Hello Alabama Belle, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Do you have the model number of the camera? You can also check at the manufacturer's website to see if they may have any drivers available to download that may work for you.

In addition, if you have a media card reader installed on your computer, you can take the card out of the camera and plug it into the media card reader instead to upload your pictures.

Hope this helps,

Hello, basically I want to know if it's possible to change the status of my digital camera when I plug it in. It always loads up as a "Removable Disk" because it has photos and videos on it, thus I cannot record or go on video conversations with people I know, but I want to be able to use it as a web cam so I can record myself through the computer like that the camera doesn't die on me while I'm recording. I've read the "Owner's Manual" and I did not find a single thing about setting it up as a web cam.

My digital camera is Centrios Digital Camera 6MP/7MP 2518151 (Silver).

My computer-the only one I have ever had- has a 15" screen. I also use the only phone line in the house for the ISP connection. No DSL or cable connections available here. Have a few friends who will help me with computer problems, but can't talk to them on phone while online. Also can't print the strange messages my computer gives me when something is not right. If I buy digital camera, will it take satisfactory pictures from the screen so that I can show someone the error messages from the computer? I think that would speed up their being able to help me.

I am looking for a digital camera with about 2 megapixel, with optical and maybe digital zoom, and good pictures at low light. I am thinking about Fuji FinePix 2600 and the Kodak DX3600. What other cameras are there?

A:Digital Camera

thats an excellent choice!

we have the 2300 at the moment but wish we had waited a few months and had the 2600 instead.
jessops will give us 125 as a trade in for the 2600, the only thing against it is, it is still quite bulky, more like the old style slr, whereas the nikon really is a compact digi camera.
as someone who carries her camera about with her all the time, size and weight feature a lot, the smaller the handbag the better.

I have an Olympus digital camera, it came with Camedia Master 1.1. I also have Adobe Photo Deluxe 2.0 and 3.0, and Microsoft Picture It Express 2.0.
My problem is how to print more than one photo per photo paper.
Right now say I wanted to print one of the pictures I downloaded from the camera. I would choose my size and make any adjustments
(red eye etc.)then click print. It prints the photo right in the middle of the paper thus wasting a lot of paper if you are only printing a 3X5 picture. Is there any software out there so you can print more than one photo (not the same photo twice but different photos) on the same paper?
Any help is appreciated.

A:digital camera

Going by memory here but in Adobe Photo Deluxe (3.0) you need to go to Advanced/Size/Canvas Size. Set the canvas size at 8.5 x 11. Then click the square where you wish the first photo to be placed. Then drag your other photos on to the canvas one at a time resizing them with the size handles as necessary. Right click and drag them into position. You can preview your layout before print. I usually get a warning that the image is too large for the canvas. If the print preview looks good I just ignore this and give the go ahead to print. HTH

Hi All,

I have recently become aware of an item in my "My Computer" folder called "My Digital Camera". This is what it looks like:-

I did not install this and don't know where it came from. There is no install information and I can't even find where the main files are located. Right clicking only produces "Explore" and "open" options. When I open it, I can then select the help/about menu and get the following.

Note, the date is 1998. I would have expected an installation folder somewhere, but can't find one.

While this doesn't appear to be malicious, I would still like to get rid of it. Anyone any suggestions?

Which is better Kodak DX3600, Kodak DC4800, Fuji FinePix 2600 or Fuji FinePix 2400?

A:Which digital camera?

I see you haven't had much of a response yet, (though you should have!)
so I'll throw in my two $cents$ worth:

I got a Polaroid PDC640SE as a "Safety Award" at work, and though I'm glad to have a digicam, I can't say that this cam does much but take bare minimum "snapshot" quality pics, and that's if all the lighting is right... wouldn't recommend it for anyone looking for a decent cam, though it does get your pics onto the computer.

Uh, more to the point,
Olympus makes several very fine digital cameras, though not listed in your poll.
Olympus comes highly recommended by several friends that own them (and I have seen the results from..good pics!), and some websites I've glanced at.
The high end Kodaks are on there, too.

I hope I have not inadvertently given a mark for this cam in your poll, for I do NOT consider it a decent one!
Merely adequate.

Hi I am confused. I have a Canon mp700 multifunction printer, that is compatible with certain types of memory card for digital cameras. I am looking at a few cameras to buy and some of them mention xD memory cards but my printer documentation does not mention these. Does that mean I won.t be able to buy a camera that has an xd memory card. ( I'm sorry if I sound thick but i have never had a digital camera before)

A:New digital camera!!

You can buy a camera with an xD card and it will work fine with your computer. You can download the images to the computer through either the camera or a cradle with the supplied USB cable.

What you couldnt do is use the card reader in the multifunction device. If you make prints directly from the card using pictbridge that might be a disadvantage. I would never consider printing something without taking it through the image editor first.

Most cameras anymore have fairly high speed connections as do the cradles if a camera comes with one. My preference is to not remove the card from the camera and just download through the camera. I have an older camera that is quite slow and I use a card reader for it. But my newer cameras never have the cards removed from them.

I received a message on my digital camera that say format memory card. What does that mean?

A:Digital CAmera

It means that the camera cannot recognise the memory on the card and assumes that it needs formatting (instructions vary by camera for this but it will be in the manual).

If this is a new card, that is not unusual, or if the card has been formatted by a computer it's not unusual.

If the card has any important images on it, and this message has occurred for no reason (i.e. it's not a new card or a recently formatted card from a PC card reader) then try removing and re-inserting the card, it may be just a connection issue.

It can also mean that the card is corrupted, and needs a reformat to try to fix it.

Just remember that formatting will remove any data on the card.

Am thinking of purchasing Kodak CX6330. Anyone have suggestions?

A:digital camera

Welcome to TSG.

I dont want you to feel ignored here. It is a simple point and shoot camera with 3Mp and a 3X optical zoom I think. It is competent for what it does. Not a lot to say about it.

You will have to buy a battery charger and a set of NiMH AA batteries for it. Alkalines dont give enough shots and become expensive and the one use lithium batteries are pricey. Either one-use solution would inhibit your free use of the camera.

If you just go with the internal memory you will have to shoot at low quality to get enough pictures. You have to buy a memory card if you want to use the camera to its best quality. 64Mb at least and 128Mb would be better.

Before paying for the docking station I would come back and ask about a better camera instead.

Try to do the installation again from the start. If that fails, or you still can't get it to work, see if you can uninstall it from the Control Panel. Finally, you may have to contact the manufacturer to find out how to manually remove the software so you can properly install it.

Alright guys,

This is my first post on these forums, and this seemed like a suitable place to post this question. I'm sorry if there is already a FAQ or Sticky for this, but I wasn't able to find it. So here's my question...

Recently I've been taking a serious interest in photography and photo editing and what not. I'm really looking to buy a good Digital Camera, that would suit my needs. I have a budget of $500 or less. What I will mostly be taking pictures of, is me and my friends, or me and my girlfriend. Cars, sporting events and such. Now, it must be digital, I realize there are probably cameras that are suited for what I'm interested in that are better then digital, but as mentioned above, I'll be doing alot of serious editing and what not. Early next year, between January and Mid-February, I'll be purchasing a PowerMac because of the fact that Macs are great for photo and video editing. I'm 17 years old and would like to make this into a career if possible. Any help would be appreciated guys, thanks in advance.
