New Canon Power Shot A1100 IS is disappointing

\015 New canon PS A1100 IS (12 mgp) does not take pictures as well as my little old Kodak DX6440 (4mgp). Pictures are not as clear and crisp. What am I doing wrong? I am not a photographer and wanted something simple like my old one but with more mgp's. The difference in the pictures I take (of the same thing) are startling. The old Kodak pictures are far clearer and more sharp. I have the Canon set for Automatic. I simply want to point and shoot like I do with the old Kodak.\015

What are the normal settings for night shots on oly C3030Z. Shall I use flash when I shot on nights? If I set the aperture on F2.8 and the shutter from 2 to 16 sec.

Focus problems I have 2 digital cameras already so I know to hold the button down 1/2 way for focusing. The Nikon is new. I HATE manuals. I am having trouble focusing on close up shots. They are either real blurry or slightly out of focus. It seems the shutter speed is so slow that any movement of my hand ruins the shot. I can take a shot of something, a plant for instance, pulled in fairly close. One shot may be ok and the next one is blurry


There are two likely reasons for the blurry pictures. One possibility is, as you surmised, a slow shutter speed. Try mounting the camera on a tripod or other stable support. You might also try turning on the flash.The other reason is focu ... Digital Cameras

Cyber-shot T2 Hello This is probably a long shot but I have had my Sony cybershot T2 for about 1 month now and about 2 weeks ago it just died on me and it won't turn on. I didn't drop it, there is a not a single scratch on it, i have charged the battery 2 full but it just wont turn on. At the beginning it would flash as if it was turning on and then stop. Now it won't even do that. I don't know what to do as I loved that camera and it's very new. It worked perfectly before. If you could help me


Hello Henrietta,\015\012\015\012Your problem is exactly my T2's problem. I returned it to the vendor and I was informed that the board is damaged and possible reason is it was dropped. Just like you, I didn't drop my T2. I wish there w ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T20 Digital Camera

I am new to this but just back from holiday with mates all with different makes of cameras and not one had same problem. Any ideas. jack.
