Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A720 IS Digital Camera ?

I have a Canon Powershot A720 IS. The photos are never very sharp. They always come out slightly grainy and the colours are off. I have lost the manual so don't know if this can be resolved or not. Even when I touch up the photos with Photoshop they look rubbish.


Answers :

The graininess of the photos would be due to an ISO sensitivity that is set too high. A good idea is to set it to "Auto". You can look through the menu and see if your ISO is set to 1600 or 800, that is too high for general use. An improperly adjusted white balance can make the colors look funny. You can set this to Auto as well, which will appear as AWB in the menu.
Try shooting in regular Auto mode.

The LCD on my Canon Powershot A610 went completely black yesterday while I was shooting. The illumination has not returned. The photos taken look fine. However, it is not possible to preview any shots. In playback mode, the illumination operates as it should. I know of another person whose A610 had this same malfunction recently, and we have no idea how to remedy this. The relevant section of the manual did not provide a solution. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

How to I get a copy of the Owner's Manual for the Vivitar v7025 digital camera? I have spent well over an hour looking here and there and I thought this manual was supposed to be IN the package, not somewhere in outer space. The color is red. I got it at Radio Shack and they said that the manual was supposed to be in the package. No such thing. All that was in the package was a Quick easy guide. Please help. I can print it out if I know where to look for this manual. Thank you. Joyce

Image quality Hi.
