Weird dark spot on Fuji X100T electronic viewfinder

Our Fuji X100T (fixed lens) digital camera has an electronic viewfinder that has a really weird dark spot right on the center of its electronic viewfinder "view". (Two photos looking through the viewfinder to the EVF.) [more inside]

Troubleshooting a Canon EOS 20D

My neighbor lent me his Canon EOS 20D to photograph art and other merch for Etsy. I haven't dropped the camera or anything like that, but it's suddenly not turning on. Or if it does turn on, it lets me take a few pictures and then dies. There is a double battery, and both are fully charged. The red light doesn't come on when I turn it on. What can I try to fix it?

Digital camera advice? ISO simple/intuitive, plus a few other features.

I am semi-tech phobic, so am looking for an *extremely* simple digital camera for still photos. Like, think Fisher Price. On, off, focus, zoom, automatic option, click. Simplicity and an intuitive design are the most important qualities. No long instruction booklet. No tiny window or up and down arrows or similar interface that I have to navigate. More desired features after the jump. [more inside]

A good point-and-shoot camera that takes good night/low light photos?

I need an easy to use digital camera that is suitable for a tourist on the go. It needs to be slim, quick, and able to take acceptable (or even good) photos in most lighting conditions. I would like it to fit in my purse or better yet a large pocket. $300 or less is what I'm hoping to spend, but I can be a little flexible if a few bucks is what will make or break me. [more inside]

Yet another question about digital cameras

I'd like to upgrade my household's photography capabilities with a new camera and I am torn between a low-end DSLR and the new mirrorless micro-4/3rds cameras. I'm torn between the world of possibilities in the DSLR space vs. the more portable aspects of mirrorless cameras. [more inside]

LCD on a 35mm Film Camera?

Is there a 35mm film camera that also has an LCD? My mother likes the idea of looking at an LCD instead of using the view finder, but doesn't want to depart from the world of 35mm film! She just needs a point-and-shoot, nothing fancy (under ~$150). Does such a hybrid camera exist?

is there any reason not to buy a new camera off of eBay?

Are there reasons to buy a new camera from a retail outlet like B&H instead of picking up the same new/"sealed"/etc. digital camera off eBay, if the price is right? Are there any unusual downfalls to getting cameras off eBay? (I'm considering the Canon G11 or S90 at the moment.)

Best Discreet Subway Camera?

Ho to make photoshop save photos?

How can I save JPG images in Photoshop CS so that a digital camera can read them? Cheap crappy software can do this easily, but no matter what file settings I use in Photoshop, I've never been able to get any of my digital cameras to be able to read any JPG that was written by Photoshop - I have to load and re-save them with other piece of software to get them to work. Surely there is a way to make Photoshop save JPG files that cameras can read? [more inside]
