Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

I have a canon EOS 450 and on a recent trip to Iceland, clear light but lots of lying snow, most of my shots came out with a very blue cast. I had a UV filter attached. Can you help?



Answers :

The UV filter should have been OK, in fact it would have decreased the blueness - The OES has a 'snow' setting I thought - what this does is change the white balance.\015\012
\015\012If your pictures are now on the computer try and change exposure setting , and also contrast.\015\012
\015\012By reducing Colour Saturation (removes blue) you will also loose some sky color.\015\012

In the P S A M modes my shots have a moderate blue cast. This just started without reason. The manuakl was no help because it didn't even list the problem.


Check your white balance setting. In the point&shoot modes the camera sets the white balance automatically. In the PSAM modes you get to choose the white balance. Set it to Auto and see if that makes any difference. Set it to Cloudy or Shade and ... Nikon D60 Digital Camera

Blue photos Can anyone tell me some reasons why some outdoor shots I took of snow/trees, etc. might look blueish? I took some pictures at sundown that came out fine, and ones I took about 10 minutes later look blue. I don't recall changing any settings. I also took similar shots at the same time with another digital camera and those looked fine. Is this something that's common in low light with a lot of white background? (Or is this a "user problem?")


Snow pictures tend to be blue due to the blue spectrum being scattered and reflected from the snow (similar to why the sky is blue). Plus just after sunset, you're going to get a cooler color temperature (blue cast).\015\012\015\012However, instead o ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ10 Digital Camera

I own a Canon power shot SD790 IS and I've been using wonderfully for the past few months Last weekend when I turned on my camera to view some pics I noticed a little blue screen on the corner of my camera in when I take pictures and upload them to the camera the blue spot doesn't show up on the pictures thank God but it's on my LCD screen and it seems internal I don't know if it's dead pixel or a lens problem can this be fixed at home please help I can't send it back because I ordered it online


It seems to be a dead pixel, best thing would be to have it replaced from the Seller, else you can get it replaced with a new working lcd panel. This may be an expensive solution.Check whether you have a worldwide warranty from Canon, that will help ... Canon PowerShot SD790 IS Digital Camera

I need help setting my Canon EOS Rebel XSi. I was taking photos of my son's soccer game last evening and most of them came out blurry. What setting/s should I set my camera on to get great night shots of his soccer game? Help - as I need to take more pics for tomorows game! Thanks, Tammy


First of all, don't use the flash...it's only good for a short distance. Obviously, you need a fast shutter speed to stop the action. To get this to happen while in auto mode, you will need to set the ISO to a higher number such as 800 or 1600. You w ... Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS / 1000D IS Digital Camera

Sony DSC-W70 "File Error", blue screen when viewing pics... Please help. I took many photos last week while in Turkey, and the last ten I cannot view.

Memory Card I just got my new Canon Power Shot G9. The user guide pictures a different memory card then what came with the camera. The guide shows a memory card that has ribbing and a write protection tab. The memory card that came with the camera does not. It is smooth all around except for one squared off corner. My problem is I cannot figure out, since the guide diagram and the actual card do not match, how the card is inserted into the camera? Please help! Thanks, Liz


They tricked you. The picture in the guide is of an SD card, but the card that came with the G9 is an MMC card. On both, there is a row of brass-colored contacts along one edge. This is what looks like ribbing in the guide. These contacts should go i ... Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera
