Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A720 IS Digital Camera ?

How do I take clear action pictures?

\015 What setting(s) do I use to take clear action pictures with a Powershot A720 IS?\015

Answers :

You can turn the dial to TV and set the shutter speed faster but you will need a bright sunny day to set it faster than 1/500. Make sure the ISO is set to auto or one of the higher settings. ISO settings are accessed by the FUNC.SET button on the back of the camera. Indoors you can turn on the flash with this setting but I doubt the flash is effective more than 15 or 20 feet. You can also try setting the dial to "kids and pets" which is a more automatic setting.

Fish photographing I have a HP 3.5 (i think) and it takes great pictures of family pets etc ... but, how do I take clear pictures of fish? Yeah, things in water it doesn't capture so well, everything comes out very blurry. I use a lot of light, don't zoom, use the action settings and all that jazz, but still it doesn't come out nice. Please help me

I have had good luck with fish pictures by pressing the front of the lens barrel up against the glass.\015\012\015\012This blocks out reflections that the glass will cause and it also holds the camera very steady.\015\012\015\012If it is a small curv ...

Focus problems Hi, my camera is not focusing clearly. We just used it recently and can look at clear pictures on the display screen but now when we go to actually take a picture it's blury (on the display screen and if a picture is taken). I also notice that all these different setting menu's come up on the display screen when we are in take picture mode.

I just received a Cannon Rebel for xmas and it was taking pictures just fine then it wouldn't autofocus and take a clear picture. I do not know if I accidentally hit a button when holding the camera but I cannot get it to take a clear pic. It also flashes a busy signal across the top of the viewing screen when it is flashing. I tried to find the fix in the guide, but nothing helped. Thanks!

Take it back and get an exchange- it's too early in the game to be getting error messages. It shouldn't be flashing busy, unless it's having trouble writing to a faulty card, or some other obscure defect. If it's too inconvenient to have it exch ... Digital Cameras

PICTURE TAKING Wonder if anyone can help me? Whenever I try to take a picture on my C-350 Zoom there is a long delay, of about 3 seconds, between me pressing the button and the flash operating to take the picture. This means I can never take any action shots and am even struggling to take family snapshots. I've checked this against other cameras and they only seem to take 1 to 1.5 seconds. I've looked through the operating manual and can't seem to find any solution. Any help would be greatly

Blurry pictures My camera has two settings on the front. One is to take still pictures, such as flowers, the other setting is for action shots. My camera will not switch back to the action setting. There is a switch on the front of the camera. I have switched it to the right position, and it won't work. I have also taken the batteries out of the camera and switched it again. No dice. This sucks because I am missing a lot of good pictures of my kids. please help.

Indoor Photography I have a Sony DSC-P1 3.2 Mega Pixels camera. I've owned it for 3 years now and have been happy with it. However, one thing that I've noticed is that sometimes when I take pictures indoors with limited light, the quality of the picture isn't very good (it's sort of fuzzy). When the lighting is better (such as outdoors), the quality is outstanding (crisp and clear) and produces beautiful pictures. This issue regarding taking pics indoors or in lower light - is this a camera qual
