Having problems with your Canon PowerShot Pro1 Digital Camera ?

Best settings for a concert w/Canon Powershot Pro1?

\015 Going to a concert and using my dad's camera. My camera does not take pictures well. I would like to know what settings best to use. The concert is indoors and will have lots of movement and lights and I would just like to have my pictures turn out with just more then a blur of lights. Thanks for any assistance. ;-)\015

Answers :

A few settings:
Set the ISO to 400. Set the light balance to TUNGSTEN... that will make the colors accurate.
and then set the dial to P and turn your flash OFF.
then when taking photos, be sure to hold the camera VERY STILL. movements are magnified while zooming so be patient.
Also take alot of pictures ... it's better to take alot and then be able to pick the real good ones and toss out the lousy ones..
Also, be nice to those nearby by turning the MUTE to ON in the menu...this turns off the beeps and clicks... You can also turn off REVIEW... and keep the display closed. This will make taking pictures quicker because you're not waiting for the display to review each shot.

Have fun...

Concert settings Hi, I am going to a concert, can you tell me the best settings to have the camera on, when I have it on iA if the subject moves then the picture is blurry, as there will lots of movement I obviously need to change this, also when I used it at my son's school in low light the pictures came out dark. Would it be best for me to do manual settings, if so which one? Thanks Julie

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.   ...

Hello. I bought my Powershot SX1 IS in April 2010, and have never felt I could get good photos with it. The 'noise' seems bad, when I playback and zoom in just one notch, definately worse, the more I zoom. The color is often poor, and the focus on close-ups is not sharp. 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

The built-in flash on my Canon Powershot pro1 is not firing. The settings are correct and I can hear it cycle, it just won't flash. The pin on the hot shoe is functioning properly.

Close-up picture Hi! I purchased my camera to take up close-up pictures of handmade greeting cards. The cards are 4" x 5 1/2" with lots of little details. I'd like to show as much detail as possble.
