Lcd blurred I have a canon power shot a80 and when i turn it on and try to take a picture, on the LCD display i see a mixture of colour which is not even letting me see the image of the picture i would like to take. If i look through the lens and take the image, i am still able to view the picture I had taken if i set the camera on the view pictures.

We just purchased a Nikon Coolpix L18, 8.0 Megapixel camera. We understand how we can resize the picture, after we take the picture to 160 x 120 (e-mail), page 45.

It would actually be the picture resolution setting. The higher it is, the bigger the picture. And vice versa ... Nikon Digital Cameras
