Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera ?

Taking a movie

\015 I've lost my user guide and dont know how to take a movie..help!\015

Answers :

To start taking a movie, press the silver button with a red center on the back, to the right of the eyepiece. To stop the movie, press that button again. It doesn't seem to matter what mode the dial on the top is in.

Now if I can only figure out why mine got the E18 error and stopped functioning...

White screen Hello, I have a Fuji S5000 Digital Camera that has never caused me any problems. I was using both the movie and photo functions this afternoon when, all of a sudden, the EVF/LCD screen turned white. I have removed the batteries, turned the camera on and off and have reviewed the troubleshooting information in my manual. At this point, when the camera is turned on, all I see is a white screen.
