Need Help With Sonycybershot Dsc-h5

Can i use my sony cybershot DSC-H5 as a webcam?

The official answer from Sony is "no, the camera is not supported for use as a web cam" Of course, that doesn't necessarily mean it won't work. I don't have your model of camera so I can't test it, but I have used other digital cameras as webcams. Just make sure you have all the software drivers installed, particularly if there is a twain driver available. Then plub in your camera, power up, put it into camera mode (not playback) and then check what ever program you were wanting to use (yahoo messenger, etc.) and look at the list of available webcam sources and see if your camera shows up. Good luck!

HELP!!!!!!!!!!! Sony DSC-H2 camera won't turn on!!!!!!!!!!!!!?

this camera is two years old.The battery died in the middle while we were recording something, leaving the lens half open. When I finally charged the batteries ( one-two months later) it closed, working perfectly. I wanted to film something today and it refused to turn on. I cleaned the battery area with a Q-tip and even put in fresh batteries. Yet, it refused to turn on even though it was perfectly working a while back. Please help me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Does sony cybershot dsc-h10 shoot raw images? or are raw images only done with a dslr?

According to the user guide for the Sony Cybershot DSC-H10, it does NOT shoot raw images, only Jpegs.

Most compact cameras do not shoot raw images, but there are a few that do. I've reviewed three of them on my blog,

1) Canon Powershot G11 (an excellent choice if you want a compact camera). The article is here:

2) Panasonc Lumix LX-3. Article here:

3) Canon Powershot S90: Article here:

4) Olympus E-P1. This is the camera I own. I will be reviewing it soon. In the mean time you can read more about it here:

As you probably already know, the advantage of raw images is the flexibility in post-processing. You have much more room to adjust exposure, white balance and the like after the fact with a raw image than with a jpeg image. I shoot raw almost exclusively.

How to change language from japanese to english in a Sony Cyber-Shot dsc-r1?

Well it's hard if you don't understand Japanese at all, and I don't have the specified camera. But you can try looking for "設定" (settings), then "言語" (language), or sometimes it's in under one menu "言語設定" (language setting) then change 日本語 to 英語 (or English).

Weather proofing a photograph?

I made a memorial cross for a friend of mine who was killed in an ATV accident, and put a picture of him on it. I covered the picture on both sides with plastic and sealed it all the way around with hot glue. Somehow, the photo got wet and it was ruined. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can put a picture on his cross that will survive the weather? The cross is made of wood that has been spray painted.

What settings do I use on Sony DSC-HX80 to achieve bokeh?

You cannot achieve “bokeh”. What you probably want is blurred background and “bokeh” means something else - bokeh is a word which is used to describe the quality of blurred background (good or bad bokeh), yet it is commonly misused.The camera in question has a very small sensor (1/2.3 inch) and a rather slow lens (Fast lens? Prime lens? What does it all mean? - it’s maximum aperture is only f/6.4 at the long end) which makes is very difficult to achieve the result that you are after.Pretty much the only way to get any significantly blurred background would be to position the main subject as close to the lens as possible (5 cm in the macro mode) and the background as far in the back as possible but even so the result will be far from what you would like it to be.
