Default camera fixed

after reading Timbos thread on camera management , I decided to look for the late wife's compact camera - camera found but charging the battery took hours , I thought it could be dead after all the years stored . But eventually all seemed OK , time to try --- error E18 , (shake/bang/swear ) curse the camera still nothing turn on laptop Google Canon error's and fix's , try everything they recommend but camera dead - when the battery was replaced the lens decided to come out , but message on screen read -- card locked also card error - try more SD cards nothing - back to Google , this took me to a short video on memory cards - now apparently old camera's (say pre 2008) using SD card wont accept newer cards as they then be classed as SDHC , after looking and searching found a 1 GB SD card placed it in the camera and success , this is the first photo from the 'shoot' ....



below is the camera ,






If you come across a older camera remember to check you have the correct memory card .

Yes it's a fact that some cords wont work in older cameras, they will fit the slot but wont work, think it's due in part to the size of the card, and the format of the card.

Some time ago I got hold of a small booklet it will tell you what cards will work in what cameras, and what ones wont.

The info by Set Track is good to know as when dealing with old cameras and cards it's not just a case of, if the card fits it will work, it may not

There are some cameras you will no longer get a card for, some have a small slot, you wont get that card for, like Holly's camera, but many of them have the really big slot as well, again like Holly's camera that you can still get the card for, but may well be old stock.

Your camera shop can look up your camera type and supply a card that will work within it.

thanks Timbo , just got back home after a evening walk . took the camera and with the remaining battery power took 34 snap's - all on max resolution (5mp) the card is not full (1 GB) .
question is , do smaller size ,lets say 500 x 500 for posting take less battery power ?

Good pictures...

Oldest cameras use FAT 16 file system... Its is very old and you have to use 2Go or less SD Cards.
