New Digital Camera - cannot upload photos

by espy4 / September 20, 2008 1:50 PM PDT

I received a Kinon Tiny VGA digital camera from an office party and used it for a week while my old camera was broken. I have installed the software but cannot get the pictures uploaded. It gives me an error message the the camera is not connected (it's connects by USB). I cannot find anything online regarding this brand of camera. Can anyone help?

Never heard of them.

But if there is help it's likely from the person who you handed the money to.

My recurring fix to photo upload issues is to unplug the SD MEMORY CARD from these cameras (you didn't tell much about that camera and I didn't find it online) and put that in my laptop or some other card reader.

Neither have I expect for this one

Thank you for your response. It was a prize at an office party and I don't even know who made the purchases so I can't track it down that way. It doesn't have a memory card it just hooks to a computer through a USB cord. I couldn't find anything about them online either and the box and accompanying software does not have a web address. Do you think if I took it to a digital photo processor, they might be able to figure it out?

Thanks again for your help!

Sorry, no.

I think the photo processor might just look at it and ask you for the memory card like I did. We have posts in this forum about several off brand models and the outcome and feedback is never good.

Best bet? Loan it to the guru you have in your company or circle of friends and see if they can make it go.

Checklist for camera
by BobbyNiel / October 5, 2008 9:03 PM PDT
In reply to: Sorry, no.

You have said that your camera was a gift. But when you start looking for a digital camera, you want to use the digital camera comparison checklist for each camera. The first thing on your checklist should be model of camera and the price. Then you should note the megapixels, optical zoom and digital zoom. Another thing you need to know is what the internal memory is without the memory card. The next thing you should find out is the type of memory card that is used in the digital camera. You will also need to know if the camera has video capabilities and if it does, does it include sound.May be the camera wasn't that good. But you can alter the camera features and get good quality pictures from the same. Try out and enjoy the presentation.

Thank you!!
