Having problems with your Canon PowerShot G10 Digital Camera ?

Canon G10 + can of Coke...what can I do?

\015 I'm an idiot. Last night a can of Coke exploded in my bag holding my G10, and it got wet. I took the battery out and have been wiping down the contacts and other parts that got wet and sticky with a q-tip, but it's just not turning on. I press the power button and...nothing. \015\012\015\012I work at a camera rental house in NYC and my co-workers told me I made a mistake in trying to turn the camera on after I discovered the accident, that it might have created a short of some kind. The camera did indeed turn on at first and there was some sort of error message about replacing the battery. So that's what I did. And since then, I have been trying to clean it and then replacing the battery, but the camera has not turned on since.\015

Answers :

Chances are you did create a short circuit. But, even if you would have given the camera a week to dry buried in a bowl of dry rice, the stickiness and the acidity of the soda would have continued to cause even more damage. Unless you're willing to spend some serious money to fix it, I would consider another camera and a more careful lifestyle.

I tried my Canon Speedlite 550EX to both Canon Rebel XT and G10 Canon G10 is much brighter. How come. I shoot at the same target and distance.

Canon Powershot G10 image quality problems... I have had my Canon Powershot G10 for 2 years and have had the same problem from the start... it is now driving me mad! When viewing photos in anything other than the supplied Canon Zoom Browser or Photo Professional the quality is poor. The images are noticeably blurred and appear grainy. I normally shot in manual mode with ISO80 and record images in RAW+JPEG. Processing the RAW photos seems to slightly improve the blur (though it is still there)
