Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I recently purchased a canon powershot sx20 15 and it is slow!

\015 I recently purchased a canon powershot sx20 15. When I go to take a photo a little red camera picture with red lines appears in the bottom left hand corner. On top of that, the camera is extremely slow to take the image and reads as busy for almost two minutes after I have taken the picture. How do I solve this?\015

Answers :

You need to do two things. 1. Take a Q-Tip dampened in rubbing alcohol and clean the battery contacts inside the compartment. Clean the battery and the charger also using the same method. 2. Go into your main menu and restore all factory defaults. You should be all set after these steps are taken. Thank you, Dana

Hi, I have a two year old Canon PowerShot SX1. Recently began to think my shutter speeds have been on the low side, based on ISO, aperture, and general lighting conditions outside. Went out and purchased a Canon PowerShot SX130 just to compare. Took about 25 shots with each, same subjects each time, same settings, same position, about 15 seconds apart. Discovered that, on average, the SX130's shutter speeds were over 3 times higher than the SX1 for proper exposures. For instance, at ISO 100

Hi I recently purchased Canon Powershot Sd1200 IS.

I'm experiencingdifficulty in transferring photos to my pc from my recently purchased Canon XSI, ie: Windows does not recognize the USB cord from my camera to a port in my pc.

This is a recently purchased camera that was working beautifully until recently. It just stopped taking pictures; when the shutter release is pressed, nothing happens. The only clue I have to what is happening came when I pressed the Quick View button and got a No Card message. I changed the CF card to one I took from my Canon Rebel XT and that I knew was working fine - again the message No Card when the QV button was pressed. Does that help at all in defining the problem? Any ideas what the pro

I have a Canon SD500 Powershot Elph camera that is about 2 years old. Recently on vacation the LCD screen stopped working properly. The screen is white with an asymmetrical black configuration on it. It's sort of like a piece of an umbrella--pointed edges and lines running through it. The camera will still turn on and off but nothing is available on the screen. Even though I paid $350 for it, I'm ready to just ditch it as Canon wants over $100 just to look at it.
