I can't find the answer in my user manual.  Is there any way to hold the shutter open for panning, for example? Or would the easiest answer be to put it in on a long shutter speed?  Thank in advance. Denverbarb -- not denverbarf (how the hell did THAT happen?)

I have a Sony Cybershot HX300, to this point have mostly used the auto settings. I am trying to get the settings to photograph moving water/waterfalls with a slow shutter speed. A friend who is a fairly knowledgeable photographer (although not with this particular camera) has worked with my camera and couldn't get it. The owner of the local camera shop spent a lot of time with me showing me how to get the proper settings, but was working with indoor lighting. As soon as I was outdoors with...

Hey there,This is my first post so be easy on me ;)I recently got into photography and thought I'd buy myself a Sony HX300! It's a brilliant camera (still getting to grips with most of its settings)! Anyway I've stumbled upon a little problem!The problem is the on/off switch! But here's the funny thing! When it's pressed to turn on it's fine and there isn't a problem, but then when I want to turn it off I press the button and nothing happens! Quite weird so I'm not sure where the problem lies...

I have just received a 55mm UV lens filter for above camera and it doesn't fit!  Too small.  Suggestions have been that 55mm is the correct size.  Do I go up to 58mm or 60mm.  Waited 3 weeks for lens to get here so am reluctant to order again until I am absolutely sure of size. Can anyone please help with this issue. Thanks.

I found out, its not in all cameras with EVF possible to review/inspect taken images in the viewfinder. For example its not possible in the Sony HX300, but in the HX400V. 1. How about postview in the TZ60 = TZ61 = ZS40 ? Can you inspect images you took an hour ago, in the viewfinder, by switching to play and using/switching-to the EVF? I am interrested in either the Panny TZ60 or fuji Finepix S1 . 2. Just another question: How many button presses to switch from Autofocus to Manual Focus...

Is there a limit to the amount of memory on a memory card the camera can access? Twice now I've been out taking photos and when I get home find the first ~3.25GB of photos are read fine without problem but the rest come up with a message saying  Windows Photo Viewer can't open this picture because either Photo Viewer doesn't support this format or you don't have the latest updates to Photo Viewer. I've just installed Photo Viewer so expect it should be up to dateFormats are the same as all...
