Hey guys, I am a COMPLETE amateur when it comes to cameras and don't understand any lingo or abbreviations so please bear with me!  I am trying to record a video with zoom x5 throughout the entire duration. After playing around with the focus and setting up the zoom to my liking, I press the button to start recording. But the zoom just disappears and I can't seem to make the zoom stay after pressing the record button. After trawling through the user manual to no avail, my next step is to ask...

I own a Sigma 30mm 1.4 Art Lens (Canon Mount + Kiss X5/600d) I also own a Sigma USB Dock (as lens was front focusing) which I used to make corrections to the lens. But it now appears that the lens is stuck in AF mode, even if the switch on the lens is set to MF, it will autofocus. This makes manual focusing (something I do often) a challenge as it requires half pressing the shutter to autofocus and holding it in place while manual adjustments are made, before taking the shot. I'm not sure if...

My wife has accused my computer of stealing her photos from her Pentax X-5 SD card ! She gave me the card to copy to my hard-drive which I duly did. Since then she cannot get her photos to play back on her camera.....she says that my computer has spirited away her pictures but I have shown her all her photos on the card via the computer.....and the SD card shows all of her photos on her printer`s screen ! But not on her camera ! At this point I must state that what I know about cameras can be...

Hello, Does the new XG-1 EVF show how the images will look, given the current exposure settings? My X-5 did not. It just gave a meter reading. A Live View is even more helpful, and both my other super zooms provide it. But I dunno. Maybe that's cheating? LOL Thanks, Dave

Hello, I have recently discovered a Minolta X-570, Motor Drive 1, Kalimar 171A flash, Quantaray 52mm lens, Minolta 50mm 1.7 lens, Minolta 135mm lens, and a Vivitar five star 500mm lens, all in a relative's attic. They said I could take it :-). Is the equipment I have decent for taking the occasional picture on the lake? Thank you for your time.

Has anyone used an IOGear Mediashair Wifi media hub for photo backup and can report on the transfer speeds? The Ravpower X5 seems not too bad as a device but is limited to 3MB/s and so would take 3 hours to backup a 32GB card. :-( I'm hoping the IOgear is a little faster than that.

Just wondering if people actually use PSP X5 or X6 for layers regularly and achieve quality results.I just upgraded my LR to LR5, and been watching tutorials for Photoshop. I'm not quite willing yet to commit to Photoshop as at this point I don't think I have a portfolio of images that demand it. But I would still like to start using layer masks for adjustments and cutting and pasting selections etc. So far it's not going so smooth in PSP X6 for me (learning the concept from scratch isn't...
