Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A560 Digital Camera ?

Most of the time when I take a close-up picture ( and it's not even THAT close ! ) the subject is blurry but the back ground is clear as a bell. I'm not a photography person , so I don;t understand what some of the functions are for ... If someone understand what may be wrong , I would SO appreciate some instructions ! :)


Answers :

If you have the camera set to use its 9-point focussing system, it's possible the camera is picking out what it thinks is the most important part of the picture and it's different than your opinion. Set it for single-point focussing and you'll be much happier.

Nikon Coolpix S50 has screwey autofocus when I shoot close-up. I select my subject, center it within my frame, depress the shapsot button half-way in order to initiate the autofocus function... The camera then begins to slide between out-of-focus, to in-focus, then keeps on going to out of focus again, and then slides "back" to an out of focus position! I understand that it is "looking" for the sharpest image as it does this--- but what it consistently selects is NOT the sharpest image! Ide

Slider Prob I've had my S30 for quite a while and lately i've had some problem with the slider opening up. Dont know if something got in between the slider and the cam or something. Anyway with some trouble i could still open up the slider and thus start up my cam but then one day when i was trying to close my cam i started to slide it to close. Finally it closed and i slided the slider onto the lens but then the lens started to open up again. But the slider was in the way so the lens opened up

Hello, My camera M1093 IS suddenly will open when I hit the power button only to close immediately. The screen comes on for a second and then it closes. I ordered a new battery thinking that may be the problem. It does the same thing with the new battery. Any thoughts?


Could be something stopping the lens to go out all the way. It will automatically retract and turn off if anything prevents it from extending. It could be the motor or whatever but I would definitely contact kodak. Also could be something like a shor ... Kodak EasyShare M1093 IS Digital Camera

I have verified my Canon A95 drains batteries by doing an amperage test. Starting with new batteries I install them in the camera and then layer a thin copper wire then piece of paper then copper wire and close the battery door. Touching the wires together closes the circuit and the camera functions. With the wires appart I measure the camera amps. The camera measures 0.6 amps when on and 0.14 amps when off. Doing the same test with my A80 Canon yeilds 0.45 amos when on and zero amps when off. T

Wierd Antics Hello. My Sony DSC-W5 opens and closes three times when I switch on the power. After this little ceremony it seems to work fine. I get the same open and close action when I switch off the power as well. This has been happening for months now...thankfully the camera still functions but does anyone have an idea how to fix this? or what caused it in the first place? Thanks.

Yesterday I took some pictures and when I reviewed on camera they all show up. However when I go to download on computer, one photo wont show up. It just shows as an icon. It also has sound on it which I dont know how to remove. I have tried to copy the photo, but it copies with sound and I still cant open the image. Is there anything I can do to get image?

I was at a game shooting pictures with my Canon rebel EOS xsi a friend picked up the camera... started shooting pictures and when he handed the camera back the autofocus wasn't working and the shutter would only occasionally close.

Focus problems I have 2 digital cameras already so I know to hold the button down 1/2 way for focusing. The Nikon is new. I HATE manuals. I am having trouble focusing on close up shots. They are either real blurry or slightly out of focus. It seems the shutter speed is so slow that any movement of my hand ruins the shot. I can take a shot of something, a plant for instance, pulled in fairly close. One shot may be ok and the next one is blurry


There are two likely reasons for the blurry pictures. One possibility is, as you surmised, a slow shutter speed. Try mounting the camera on a tripod or other stable support. You might also try turning on the flash.The other reason is focu ... Digital Cameras

I've owned this camera Nikon F65 for a few years and it was working perfectly, but I haven't used it for the past year or so and now it just stopped working! I put fresh batteries in, lights come on and all functions are displayed ok, but the shutter isn't releasing and it isn't taking any pictures as if all the functions are disabled, no use pressing the shutter as nothing happens. I'd really appreciate your advice on this matter, thanks!
