Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera ?

I have an canon power shot A85. The image taken by it is so blur. We thought it may be the display issue, however the old picture saved in the card are still sharp. The camera can still be used to take video, and the quality is good. Is this due to the setting, since kids have played it more than 6 months. Thank you.

Video duration I have a GE A835. I want to take video. It shows that I can only take thirty minutes with a 1 gig card. The only thing that I can think of is that there is some reason it is putting the files on the camera memory instead of the card. I have used all the settings I can find to put video on card. I know that it has to take longer than that. My PHONE will take 14 hours. I would be happpy with less quality for more time. HELP

Pink pictures the other day.... I was using my camera and it started showing lines through the image, the image quality was getting worse and worse.  I figured needs new batteries.  So I put new batteries in it and now it takes pink pictures!  How strange my evergreen pictures look in fushia color!   I tried and tried for a couple of weeks, I checked all the settings, even took the batteries out and restarted, but still pink!  all shades of pink!  Here's where it really gets odd, I got my camera

I have a Canon Rebel XS that I just purchased a month ago. I have taken very good care of it. I took several pictures yesterday, but when I turned it in this morning it wouldn't take a picture. It flashes rapidly, but won't focus. The only setting I ever use is the auto focus setting, and I've checked to make sure it was still set, but still it won't take a picture. I am out of town and I don't have my manual, so I can't troubleshot on my own. :( Can you help?

Still pics My camera used to take beautiful still photos but wouldn't take camcorder movies (20 secs at a time). Now that is all it takes, and I would rather have the still pictures. I have checked the settings but no matter which one it says- pc-cam or dsc it still does the same thing. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.

I would like to find a video camera that will allow me to freeze frames and get a single image from the video. I take animal pictures and using a regular camera is frustrating. If I could get 10 seconds of video, then take out a single image for a picture, it would help. I do not need more than 1 megaPixel quality. Thanks for the help


Sounds like you just mostly have problems with the camera not taking the picture as soon as you push the button. There are some ways to get a single frame from a camera video file, but I think the best way to get what you really need is to have a ca ... Digital Cameras

Resolution problems I have my Cannon XT set at large under quality but no matter what the quality setting is set at all my pictures once downloaded have a PPI of 72. I have tried everything possible but still get only 72 PPI pics. I am using Cannon software to download the pictures and have also tried Adobe. What can I do to fix the problem?


Sometimes if you open up a photo in Photoshop, or another bitmap program, it'll display your photo at 72dpi. That's OK because your photo is likely to also be very large in size. Reduce it's size while at the same time allowing those pixels to crunch ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

What are the optimal settings for my digital camera? I have a brand new Canon PowerShot 12.1-Megapixel Digital ELPH camera, but I've been really disappointed in the quality of pictures it takes. For example, sometimes there are these smallish blurred white circles on the pictures. Can you recommend optimal settings that I should be using? I use my camera indoors and occasionally outdoors, so whatever settings best cover all different conditions would be ideal.


Small white circles usually means dust on the lens.  Remove the dust with a blowerbrush - not a tissue.\012You are asking for a "1 size fits all" solution for your settings, and indoor and outdoor use really means different settings.   ...

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 ...

Portrait's I own an Olympus E-500 and I am trying to take portraits. I tried two different settings 1. Auto 2. Portrait neither with good results. I used a backdrop and two strobe lights, both professional equipment. With this said I would like to play with Manual mode, to try to improve the quality of my pictures. I am in JPEG SHQ settings. I am asking for your suggestion in manual to improve the quality of my Portraits. Thank you for your assistance. Ron Hafer

Battery Life Battery Indicator shows Orange after taking 3-Videos or several images. Battery Indicator= Green good, Orange half battery life, Red nearly gone. I have replaced the Casio original batteries (2100mAh) with 2700mAh. Still the same battery life, Orange indicator after few Videos or several images. I have since purchased 2100mAh to suit the Casio charger and still the same problem. I used to get approx 150 shots. Is the camera discharging the batteries? Any Ideas?

Have a Panasonic FZ50. Puchased a Tokina 3x Telephoto today. Screwed the Telephoto on with the correct adapter ring.Changed the Menu setting to Tele. Go to take a Photo and i can only get the conversion icon to stop blinking red to white at full zoom? Can i still take quality shots at different focal lengths with the blinking red icon in the view finder or at only full zoom.What have i missed? Thanks!

White out Every photo I take seems to white out, as if it is letting in to much light. But it is more than this, as it is possible to see white streaking on the image as well. I have also tried taking photos in various manual settings, resulting in the same problem. It seems to be a little better in doors. However when I use video mode the image is normal. This problem first occured on holiday in Singapore - when I took it into a shop out there they said it was probably the heat. But the problem
