Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A630 Digital Camera ?



Answers :

Regardless of the camera make/model... dark, grainy photos are usually a result of a lighting problem. Looking at the specs for your camera, the flash is only speced for 4m. If you are shooting near or above this you might have trouble. I ended up using an external flash that is triggered by sensing the cameras flash. Pretty inexpensive and pics ar 10x better. Try a local camera shop or B&H Photo (NYC) is where I got mine set up on line.

Grainy, image I bought my Riccoh Caplio GX 5.1 mp three years ago. At first it took the best pictures I could wish for, but for monyhs now I am getting very variable results. Some photos are OK, but many are grainy, "pixleated" - having tiny spots of the primary colours throughout the image. There doesn't seem to be any one situation when this happens. It can be inside, outside, flash or none. The pictures also seem to be a lot darker, so photos taken inside or at night are much poorer quality,

You might have changed the settings; ISO setting too high or something else, just reset it to factory settings if you can't figure out ISO. ... Ricoh Caplio GX Digital Camera

Dark photos I am a new Nikon user and have the D80. This is way more camera than I will ever need. I can not take pictures without them being dark not even in the auto mode. This is inside or outside I have two lenses and have switched them and it's still dark. I was able to change the exposer to get them lighter but would think you could take pictures in auto that would be fine.

Digital camera When I take pictures they seem to have a lot of blue in them. For instance grass is greenish blue instead of green. Is there a way to adjust the color? Without the flash pictures are to dark and if I use the flash inside it washes out faces. When I take the photos into photoshop I can adjust the colors but the washed out faces are still there. Most of the pictures are blurry. Is there a solution for this? Is there a solution for this or do I chalk it up to a cheap camer

Hi there, I am having the same problem. I have this dark round cicrle on each of my photos weather im outside or inside night or specially at night. I have a D90 nikon and it has a hoood on it and iam not using the additional flash just the build in it goes automatic since I did put it on automatic settings. Another thing how do I correct the pictures that has the black shadow, since it is made already. Thank you [email protected]

Grainy Pictures I received this camera as a Christmas gift, this past Christmas, and I have not been able to get a decent photo from it yet.
