Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have a problem with my canon sd850 is. It can

\015 I have a problem with my canon sd850 is. It can only be set on ''continual flash'' if you are in the manual mode. And there is no manual setting for ''backlit'' picture.So all of my backlit pictures contain dark subjects.I just don't know how to overcome this. Even on ''face detect'' setting, it doesn't help the problem. The manual mode settings all tend to slow the shutter lens, and I can't hold the camera still enough not to have slightly blurred pics. Maybe I just don't know how to set it.But I'm also bummed that I can't override the auto flash, except to turn it off. Anybody help? Does this make sense? Jan\015

Answers :

You should be able to set the flash to off, auto, auto with redeye, slow-shutter sync, and forced flash on. The last two should give you the results you're looking for. If these aren't available in manual mode, get out of manual mode.

Canon SD850 focusing problem: When I zoom in, the camera no longer focuses; any shot taken with any level of zoom turns out blurry. How can I get this fixed? Thanks!


Sounds like some sand or other dirt inside the focus gears. There are very small gears in the focus system and even one piece of sand can block it at some point. The only way is to take it all apart and clean it under a microscope. I have repaired a ... Canon PowerShot SD850 IS Digital Camera

My Canon D50 is used only for astro imaging.The camera is not modified.My problem is when I shoot at ISO 3200 for faint galaxies,I get a huge amount of grainness..My friend has a Canon D40 and does not have this problem when shooting ISO 3200.The grainy background is so intense that it makes post processing of any quality impossible.

The shutter speed priority setting on my Canon 40D keeps jumping to a different speed that I haven't set. E.g - set at 200, jumps to 25 when I go to take a photo. I have spoken to Canon regarding the problem and they have suggested that I clear the user settings. This initially solved the problem for all of an hour, but the problem has now started up again. I'll probably be sending it in, as I think it might be a problem with the hardware, just thought I'd check here first. Any suggestio

My LCD screen on my Canon Power shot G3 is blank (just white). There are no icons; no viewing of things I wish to photograph. I called customer support they said there was no problem with the CCD image sensor on G series cameras per the Canon service letter of 10/6/05.I would have to pay about $135 plus shipping to get it fixed or trade for another camera which would cost me money also. I'm not happy with this because I assumed that Canon would fix the problem if it appeared on the G series. Ple

Canon Powershot G10 image quality problems... I have had my Canon Powershot G10 for 2 years and have had the same problem from the start... it is now driving me mad! When viewing photos in anything other than the supplied Canon Zoom Browser or Photo Professional the quality is poor. The images are noticeably blurred and appear grainy. I normally shot in manual mode with ISO80 and record images in RAW+JPEG. Processing the RAW photos seems to slightly improve the blur (though it is still there)
