Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A470 Digital Camera ?

Videos are now a small picture and when expanded are POOR quality

\015 When My A470 takes videos now the picture is very small. When I expand it to full screen the quality is terrible. I don't understand because it used to take great videos that were of good quality when in full screen. Is it possible that I pressed some button on the camera and changed a setting? Please help! Thank youBonnie\015

Answers :

It seems that you have reduced the resolution of the vedio capturing format. In format settings change it to maximum avaialbe resolution such as 1024x900, etc ( maximum among available). Also for increasing the still photo resolution, select the maximum mega pixel such as 3.2/5/etc.. Usually the mega pixels can be changed using any short cut keys.

Blurry pictures I've had this camera for almost a year and everytime I want good pictures (vacation, birthdays, xmas) I'm disappointed with the quality of my pictures.

Some people say they keep their's on the auto setting, I find I need to keep mine on the nighttime setting to get decent pictures. Any sugggestions with settings, etc to hel

I would like to find a video camera that will allow me to freeze frames and get a single image from the video. I take animal pictures and using a regular camera is frustrating. If I could get 10 seconds of video, then take out a single image for a picture, it would help. I do not need more than 1 megaPixel quality. Thanks for the help

Hi.

Just few days before I purchased Nikon P90. Earlier I used Sony H50. I am very disappointed with P90. Reasons are : i) The LCD display is very poor compressing with Sony H50. ii) Battery levels are not displayed unless the power is too low. iii) Picture quality not very satisfied. iv) If I take a close picture, the subject size is changed. (example, I take a close picture of my daughter for passport size picture, but my daughters' face is changed in picture). It is very pleasurable for me if
