Having problems with your Canon Powershot A1000IS Digital Camera ?

I know how to set the timer, but how do you start it?


Answers :

Once the self-timer is set, simply press the shutter release button down all the way as if you're taking a picture normally. The timer will start and, after the delay, take the picture.

Blurry Pictures I have had this camera less than a year. I took it to the beach 2 weeks ago and the camera was fine. Crystal clear pictures. Then, on the last day of vacation, the pictures started coming out blurry. Even when I am preparing to take a picture the view finder is blurry. The camera is on auto focus and it is set to the shoot and click setting (little green camera). It didn't get wet at all. Anyone know if there is a setting that I may have touched or is this an internal problem.
