Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera ?

Re: outdoor pics very light

\015 After having the same problem as others seem to be having with the Canon S2 IS Power Shot, that being the lcd and viewfinder showing only black when trying to take a picture, I followed the "iris" fix, which did work after the first time. My trouble now after getting the iris fix completed is this: I can only take indoor pictures with it. The indoor pictures are good. Now I can't take outdoor pics. When I attempt to take an outdoor picture, I get a whitewash effect on the outdoor picture, some of the subject is visible, but most of the picture is covered with the whitewash effect on it.\015\012Is there a fix for this? Is this something I could fix?\015

Answers :

It sounds like overexposure. If you are in Auto mode, you should have your settings automatically so you shouldn't get overexposure and if you are, you may need to have your camera serviced.

Make sure your ISO is not high, make sure your shutter speed is not long and make sure your flash output is not high.

Other than that call Canon and set up service or get an upgrade through their Loyalty program.

Indoor Photography I have a Sony DSC-P1 3.2 Mega Pixels camera. I've owned it for 3 years now and have been happy with it. However, one thing that I've noticed is that sometimes when I take pictures indoors with limited light, the quality of the picture isn't very good (it's sort of fuzzy). When the lighting is better (such as outdoors), the quality is outstanding (crisp and clear) and produces beautiful pictures. This issue regarding taking pics indoors or in lower light - is this a camera qual


What's probably happening is this: Since the light is low, the shutter must remain open for a relatively long time. If you're hand-holding the camera, you'll get blurry shots. Using a tripod will eliminate this. It doesn't typically happen outdoors b ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P1 Digital Camera

I have a samsung digimax S600 camera. From not too long back i have been having problems with the image quality of pictures clicked in broad day light in the outdoor. There is no problem, however, indoors whatever the light condition. Also, if i shoot a video using the camera, even on the outdoors, i get satisfactory results (not any different from earlier). What could be the problem? Thanks.

I purchased DMC-FZ28 k August 2008. I am not a photographer and used iAuto function and other preset modes. The pics come out "flat" "dull" and lack vibrance and color depth. This is made more obvious when pics are compared to other pics I have taken (older Canon powershot camera) and pics taken by others using their less expensive cameras. This has been this way since new and applies to all sorts of pics - inside, outside, light, flash, etc. I have tried various settings, experiment
