Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera ?

My Power Shot S1 suddenly changed to taking smaller pictures

\015 The picture size went from 1600 x 1200 to 1024 x 768. I don't know how that happened, and I don't know how to change it back. When I run a slide-show, the smaller pictures display smaller. The actual jpeg files are smaller, and therefore of a lower resolution.\015\012\015\012I am on the road w/o a manual. Any idea how to change this back?\015\012\015\012HELP!!!!!\015

Just few days before I purchased Nikon P90. Earlier I used Sony H50. I am very disappointed with P90. Reasons are : i) The LCD display is very poor compressing with Sony H50. ii) Battery levels are not displayed unless the power is too low. iii) Picture quality not very satisfied. iv) If I take a close picture, the subject size is changed. (example, I take a close picture of my daughter for passport size picture, but my daughters' face is changed in picture). It is very pleasurable for me if

For several years my C-3020 zoom camera has worked fine. Suddenly, now when I take a picture, the picture leaves when I snap the shutter. Always before the picture remained on the screen so I could see if it was a good take. I can't figure out why it has stopped holding the shot. Any answer for me please?? The way it's working now I have to wait and see if it was a good shot later.

Was scrolling through pictures recently taken. camera suddenly froze - can't go forward , can't go back, can't turn off the power, can't take a picture -- the power light just stays on and none of the buttons work. Thought of removing the battery but don't wan't to take a chance on losing all my pictures.


Taking out the battery would do no harm to your pictures. Also in some models of cameras you can force it to shut down by holding the power button for 10 seconds. Might be worth a try . If not you can always remove the battery. ... Kodak EasyShare M1033 Digital Camera
