Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A640 Digital Camera ?

Low resolution on highest setting

\015 I have been using my canon powershot a640 for about a year now, i always keep it on manual, large, superfine. i use macro, shoot jewelry and use a lightbox. in the last month my images have become very grainy, as though i were on an extremely low setting. i have double checked everything, the settings are still the highest...is there something else i can do or does the camera need to go back to the company? the pictures i was used to were wonderful and clear!thank you in advance for your help!\015

Answers :

Resolution I have a Canon Rebel XTI. Here is my problem. I took some senior pictures and then downloaded them onto my computer so that I could order them from my lab. The largest size that I could order was a 5x7 because of the resolution. What am I doing wrong. I have my camera set for the highest setting and I am using full auto. Can you tell me what may be affecting the resolution?

Hello. I bought my Powershot SX1 IS in April 2010, and have never felt I could get good photos with it.

Would you say this is the best this camera can do, or would you say there is something wrong with this particular one. (I always have it set at highest resolution , often 100 ISO, try the set of three exposures to get diffe
