    Okay, I have a Canon 7 megapixel camera. We had some pretty good times, but after a while my camera said that any new, fresh batteries were low on power after just a few shots. I thought "oh great, now I have to get it repaired or shell out for a new one." On a whim, I got a new data card/memory card for my camera thinking I could use it in a new camera if I got one. Well, I decided to try it in my old camera for the hell of it. BONZAI! The camera now works how it did before. No more three pictures and having to swap batteries that I knew were still good. I hope this helps you!:)

    Thanks for the information. Changing the memory card is always a good idea when you're having camera problems.

    I don't think think the blur or focus issue is an issue. The fur is soft which I like. Very sharp portraits are murder on the subjects, every facial hair, zit and wrinkle is perfect! (not good). I soften portraits by stretching panty hose over the lens hood. Works better than any filter I have tried.

    SORRY, I WAS WRONG!!! It wasn't the camera's data card - It was the contacts. There is a video on Youtube that shows that if you bend the battery contacts so they touch the batteries better then the problem is solved.

    Sorry for the misinformation.
