Canon sd900 I seldom use my canon sd900 and I usually take pictures without using the flash. But I recently noticed that my hands should be very very steady, just a slight movement will cause the picture to be blurry or unclear. I usually don?t use the flash because it gives a darker background with your face too white from the flash. And my problem arises when I would request other people to take my picture because 90% don?t have a steady hand thus giving me a blurry picture.

Camera flash i generally use my camera on auto mode so i don't have to play around with buttons! however after loaning my camera to my sister for a week my flash is no longer as great as it was!!

I bought a used canon xs from craigslist. I think a hard lesson learned already. Anyway the camera appears to be in great condition. The problem is whenever I take a picture it does not come out right. The colors are way off. Some colors look fine, blue will come out beige, gray or green. This is with the flash indoors or outdoors with just normal light and the camera on full auto. I called canon and they said it sounds like the sensor is going bad. Just wondering if anyone has any advic
