I ain't so lucky I'm in the UK too!!!! Generally speaking the cost pf packing, shipping repair, at any level is well on the way to the price of the next more recent higher specification device. Judging by the way the Megapixels go up by the week seemingly, settling for a replacement camera is usually the best option. I had a cheap[old] Fuji come my way because it had gone blurred and blue - sure sign of a CCD failure as this was at some time the subject of a recall for the problem I checked out Fuji Their response was to say no longer repaired but has a 1/3 off a new camera when I quoted a reference number. That seems to be the way to go.

I have found that the camera is sensitive to battery power in that a slight fall off in voltage causes the problem. I came across a site, which I have not been able to find again, where it was stated that the contacts on the lid do not sit with sufficient pressure on the batteries to get a good contact. If you put the batteries in and look across the top, in my case, the battery +ve terminal is sitting slightly lower than the –ve battery terminal. To solve it, put a small piece of very thin plastic under the +ve contact on the lid so that it sits more proud. This has certainly improved my problem to the extent that this week the plastic fell out and the problem returned. Also I always use high capacity re-chargeable batteries. Hope this helps.

Try cleaning the contacts on the camera body and the lens where they meet with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

PICTURES ARE BLACK


6 Ways To Fix Too Bright and Too Dark Photos

Recompose The Photo This is probably the simplest solution. When taking a photo of a scene with very bright and very dark parts, move your camera to eliminate one of the extremes. In the case of the band, I would have either closed the curtains for the shot, or recomposed completely and photographed from the window looking at the band, and the crowd behind.
Use Exposure Lock If you can't recompose the photograph, instead tell the camera what part of the image you would like to see. The rest of the photo will be either over or under exposed (too bright or too dark) but at least you will see your subject. You can dothis by placing the center of the image at your subject; half depressing the shutter to lock the focus and exposure; move the camera to re-compose the image; and fully depressing the shutter.
In the band image, the camera chose to correctly expose the scene outside, but even if the band member had been correctly exposed, the window would have ended up being over exposed and you would just have seen white.
Some cameras have an option called 'spot metering' to set the part of the image you'd like to be correctly exposed. If your camera has this setting, enable it before using the technique above.
Use Fill In Flash If your scene has a sunny background, but your subject is in the shade (or has a hat on), turn on the flash (as I explained way back in tip number 9 - Using Flash During The Day). I know it seems wrong but it really does work! By using the flash, your subject will look as bright as the background. This would have worked well for the child shot above.
High Dynamic Range Imaging This technique is not for the faintof hearted. It requires a subject that does not move; a good camera with the capability to set the exposure and output RAW images. A tripod and image editing software like Photoshop CS3 are also needed.
High Dynamic Range Imaging (or HDR for short) is a technique for placing both very dark and very light areas in the same photo. It requires you to take a number of photographs of thesame scene - each with a different exposure. First take the shot using the camera's recommended settings. Then, in manual mode and keeping the aperture at the same value as the first shot, take a sequence of shots - each shot having a different shutter speed (above and below the original). You'll have 5-9 shots of the same scene all in different exposures.

Merging the three images to the left creates the HDR image below. Thanks to Photomatix for the images.
hdrmerged.jpgNow import these into your favorite paint program. I use Photoshop, but you can as easily use a cheaper program designed specifically for HDR photos like Photomatix. Follow the HDR directions and the paint program will merge these images into one great looking shot!
Use a Filter If your scene is of a brightsky and a dark ground (for instance at sunset, or on a cloudy day), you can use a graduated neutral density filter. This filter cuts out someof the light from one part of the photo (the sky). This will correctly expose the ground and the sky without needing to use HDR. These filterscan be complex to setup, so I don't usually recommend them for beginners.
Fix The Original Photo in an Image Editing Program twobright2.jpgFinally, if you can't take another shot at the same location, you can fix the original image by changing the levels using a paint program. This works best when your subject is darker than the rest of the photo (because cameras lose detail in over-bright areas). I've brightened the band member in the top image using this technique and while it looks okay in thissmall shot, this technique can tend to amplify any noise in the image. The darker the subject, the harder time you will have fixing the image.
I discuss exactly how to use this technique in lesson 2 of my free Image Editing Secrets course. I have a tutorial for Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Paint Shop Pro and the free Google Picassa.

Tip

Get more out of S4000


ISO
Set ISO Setting to FIXED RANGE and set the range to 80-400. The camera produces noise at HIGH ISO setting.
NIGHT SHOTS
Get a small Tripod and you can take wonderful night time shots of city-scapes. Use a tripod and set the camera White Balance to Incandes. Make sure the FLASH is Off Set the Exposure Comp. to -2. Set the self timer and then frame and press the shutter and back away. Some exposures can be 1 second long so a tripod is not optional. Small plastic Joby ones work. If you are holding the camera during the shot it will move with you. A self timer is used to take the photo after you are not touching it.

When you use the flash set the White Balance to Flash (Unless you are outside on a sunny day. then use daylight)

I do NOT recommend using Auto Flash. Set the flash to OFF or turn it to SINGLE BOLT for fill.

When you want to photograph people outside in the sun set the White Balance to Daylight. On sunny days use the Fill Flash (Single Bolt) to fill faces better. Yes good photographers use flash in the direct sun. When cloudy are in shade turn flash off. If the subject has a bright background get close to them and have the flash on.

This camera makes red eye. In most cases when you are taking a photo of people in low light, when the flash supplies most of the light, you will get horrible red eye. You have to edit these later to remove the red eye.

When i open my internal flash on my 1100d there's show up problem.err 50, whats happen with my camera?how to fix it?


you could check online and see if there is a firmware update for the camera? or it could be an actual physical part on the camera needs replaced? would be really frustrating i imagine. another solution would be to get an external flash like the $40 neewer tt560 and see if it works with camera? it is miles ahead of the onboard flash anyway and is a good investment to any photographer! and the only other suggestion is to upgrand to T3i (600D) or T5i (650D)

I can see something called "Exp Sim" in the bottom right corner of my 1100D. It flashes sometimes and is displayed continuously when I click a photo. What is this?


"Expo Sim" (Exposure Simulation) shows what your picture would look like with your chosen settings. For example, put the camera in full manual mode, start Live View, start turning dials and you'll see changes in the look.

How do I use flash to freeze motion on a canon 1100D


flash will only completely freeze motion in total darkness. It is then that the duration of the flash is acting like your shutter speed even if you shot on bulb.

Im using a canon eos 1100D my pictures are dark when im using the built in flash


The range on your pop up flash is only about 15 feet, if your subject is further than that they will be underexposed. Try bumping up your ISO, also you can increase your flash exposure compensation by as much as two stops.

My Canon Camera 1100D after take 1 shot an err30 appear


Err30 indicates a problem with the camera shutter. Turn off the camera. Then remove the battery, take out the memory card, and then remove the lens. Clean the lens contacts and replace the lens (make sure that it is a Canon lens). Then replace the memory card and the battery. Then turn the camera back on.

If the error recurs, the camera needs service. Contact Canon.

I hope the problem is resolved by the above steps.

Camera says busy and I can't take a shot


Could be what you have the camera set at for how long the picture stays on the screen after it is taken. If the picture is still on the screen it wont take a picture until that picture has been stopped being shown. On my canon I have it at 2 seconds and I know at 4 it wouldn't let me take another shot so quick. Check all of your settings and read the manual.
